I’m in a Starbucks with 19 people, nine computers, and zero MacBooks. If you want to point to a success of Windows in this decade, that and similar situations are it.

I get the impression that the touch bar would be a lot better for the kind of person who can never remember keyboard shortcuts, or isn't comfortable with them (or maybe can't physically). "Here are the most relevant things!" But for me it's just a second, slower way to do things.

On the software side, I'm giving the app-specific touch bar a month or two trial before setting it to "control strip only" mode. So far there are zero (0) compelling app-specific uses, and only a few system-wide ones:

- Which app is playing music?
- "Mirror" or "Extend" display?

Continuing 16"MBP impressions thread: sometimes the touch bar just…stops handling touches. I'm trying to pay attention for a pattern (cold fingers?) but nothing definitive yet. :-/ Very glad for a physical escape key, but it doesn't help with the other functionality.

This is almost unbelievable: Sonos speaker come with an irreversible auto destruct mode to prevent people re-using them after they've been designated for recycling.

It's apparently even possible for customers to activate the mode accidentally, leaving them with a useless brick. https://t.co/WqNY2o7rnv

Sonos states on their website that "sustainability is non-negotiable," and that they design products to minimize impact, but I work at an e-waste recycler and have demonstrable proof this is false.

Sonos's "recycle mode" intentionally bricks good devices so they can't be reused. pic.twitter.com/VJDNhYOxRy

Meaning there’s no way to get return values out of the action.

Dropbox Smart Sync doesn't seem all that smart to me. The moment you navigate to a folder in Finder it starts switching its contents to 'Local' instead of 'Online Only'; presumably QuickLook is to blame, touching everything it sees, but surely Dropbox's KEXT must understand this?

No proprietary publishing formats, no bullshit. Just basic RSS feeds, OPML imports/exports, and a directory component for novice users.

Imagine what that would do for the open web. Imagine how it could influence the entire industry if the company put enough weight behind it.

What if Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, or some other big-name player released a news app that was exclusively powered by RSS feeds? It could be designed like a podcast client, with a directory of sources that you could pick from, but you could also just add any RSS feed.

Ultimately, though, Shortcuts is in a straightjacket. To break out, it needs “real” scripting steps, like Automator, Keyboard Maestro, and Drafts.

💯 obviously fake. A fabricated bug report, fabricated screenshot, fabricated apple email address nobody on Safari/WebKit team has heard of, etc etc

The screenshot of the alleged Chromium bug includes a supposed Apple email address that doesn’t belong to anyone on the Safari or WebKit teams, and Chromium doesn’t have any code to support ITP that could be enabled.

This is a complete fabrication.
