Safari on OS X has a race condition that causes it to often treat searches as URLs. For example, you type "rust programming language" into the box and it tries to go to the "URL" `rust%20programming%20language`. This has existed for at least four years. https://t.co/NOoGR1Nk4d

Basically scan percentage through the total in blocks.

I’ve thought about making the gradient a progress bar, but I’ve also thought about removing it entirely, since while it’s representative of *something*, it’s not “50% done” in terms of TIME.

Had the chance to really dig deep into BeOS. Terrific tech. I get why Apple went with NeXT but still makes me wistful, thinking what might have been. https://t.co/AeULvpwh8M

Correct. But Scott told me Steve always wanted that. Which is why we had that silly “everything is Web app” firedrill right after launch.

This was so long ago I forgot about it when Shortcuts was announced. Since Apple doesn’t let users or apps change input during a Shortcut, this is actually far less powerful than what Android was doing years ago.

We had no plans for third party apps during the development cycle for the first iPhone. Zero work was done on public API before the initial announcement in Jan 2007.

Here is how Shortcuts is a game changer for personal automation:

In a simple flow of actions, control Do Not Disturb, HomeKit, and Music – and summon everything via voice, without ever opening the app.

Wow they really let the Workflow folks go nuts with the power of private API. Knowing the team, this app is only gonna get more powerful https://t.co/YbqzljnVt1

Also due to inits and setters being often times precomposed with a return value from a constructor or function (which are always +1).

On a more serious note:

Like I imagined, Shortcuts IS Workflow, but much more powerful thanks to Siri. All the advanced features are here, plus new actions.

Here's a Toggl API workflow running in Siri. Took me 2 minutes to update it.

I'm going to have so much fun with this. pic.twitter.com/EZCY4qrpM1

Swift also still uses the +1 convention by default in situations where it's most likely to be profitable, such as for the `newValue` in property setters or the arguments to inits, since these arguments are likely to be stored in the receiving object

Yup. I’m thinking more of pre-ARC where, in practice, often neither side would retain because you knew you weren’t doing anything that would make the object go away. Of course, sometimes what you know is wrong, so it’s good to have it guaranteed now.

That will be true until Marzipan is fully realized and the Mac App Store is the only way to install apps.its going to be a long process, but I’m convinced that’s where this is headed.

Still an important diff between Swift and ObjC—in Swift, the caller guarantees the validity of references, so callee never needs to retain. In ObjC, *neither* side guarantees validity, so both caller and callee must retain defensively unless it can be proved no mutation occurred

Interesting how "discussed offline" has evolved to mean "discussed online, but by a different mechanism from the one currently being used"

I think the bigger point is that Steve had a tremendous ability to be convinced by evidence. He assembled a team of people with strengths that balanced his weaknesses, and he listened to them.

eGPU support on Mac isn’t a bandaid or masking a problem. It’s one of the most insanely awesome developments in modern computing for pros.

I’m glad to see Apple proactively and aggressively supporting TB3 (an open, non-proprietary standard btw).

I think also that a lot of the APIs that let you do creative things with neutered by sandboxing, so there just is less of a reason now. The Spotlight API let you do a bunch of really handy things, but of course that lets you see user files, so... neutered.
