Apple kept the full width status bar on non-X iPhones, but decided to give iPads the notch version of the status bar. Maybe this was left in to create hype for the awful notched iPad and it’ll be reverted later.

For now iOS 12 is a pretty big mess on iPad. pic.twitter.com/tFraIz8D24

What kills me here is that when I joke that I’d kill for a new mac mini what I mean is that even if it were 5X the current size I’d pay twice what the same spec’d PC would cost as well as endure arguing w/my mac-hating boss to allow it, if only they’d just make the goddamn thing.

When the G4 was pretty behind and portable G5 proved impossible we still got new Macs. Apple innovated beyond the silicon and brought new ideas to market to stay competitive. Huge work on iLife apps, experiments like Front Row, fun apps like Photo Booth..

I don't buy computers from Intel. I buy them from Apple. Intel isn't the company trying to sell me a 5 year old Mac at full price. Intel also didn't design Apple's Mac Pro into a corner. Pointing at Intel isn't about fairness. It's just about covering for Apple's failures. https://t.co/bODSwZRt8p

To me, it’s more that they’re doing difficult, somewhat pointless things well, and whiffing on the “easy” things. See last year’s much heralded (by Apple) improved Siri voice. The damn voice was the least of its problems, yet time was spent on that.

Messages on Mac is back to randomly sorting messages and this is literally the fourth time they’ve broken it that I can remember. SORTING BY DATE IS INEXPLICABLY HARD.

Parents have a 13” MacBook Air (2011) that now needs a replacement because Mojave no longer supports it. “How much is a replacement?” “It starts at €2099 for the same features (more than one USB port)” “Oh well I guess we just won’t ever upgrade” (actual conversation)

I agree. However, Apple fails to deliver on what they have 100% control on: poor battery life, failing keyboards, poor connectivity, etc.

Those are not on Intel's fault and they are what used to define the Mac.

Inside the Marzipan daemons in macOS there is some indication that they've attempted running more of the iOS apps, like Mail, on macOS. I'd like to think there's a Mac at Apple somewhere running a full set of iOS' system apps 😂 (…or is this a malign portent for future Macs?)

The great thing about continuous integration and unit testing is I can contribute a change to another team's project and be reasonable sure I didn't set everything on fire.

Some assumptions to watch out for in 4.2 now that hash values are randomly seeded:

- that a Dictionary will get built in the same order for same input on every process run

- that hashValue == rawValue for enums

- that you can safely += hashValue into an Int without overflow

Air users: We love the size and value and battery and ports! Retina would be nice.

Apple: How about 12” Retina, but no ports, worse value, less battery, and a controversial keyboard?

Air users: No thanks.

Apple: OK, make that 13”, add one port, and make it even more expensive?

The 12” is a great computer for the extreme priorities it was designed for.

But it wasn’t designed to be *THE* mass-market computer like the 2010 13” MacBook Air was, and no technological progress likely to happen in the next five years will turn it into that. https://t.co/tuIJantnpR

I’ve heard nothing, but this sounds right.

Anyone thinking the 12” would replace the Air didn’t understand why the Air has been so popular: it’s inexpensive, very capable, versatile, and widely agreeable.

I can’t say any of those about the 12” MacBook. https://t.co/W75NefdTFK

I think (guess) MacBook 12 was supposed to drop down and replace Air but CoreM is terrible and it’s still expensive to manufacture so Apple is switching to a new Air. https://t.co/tcmYypsrXV

My point is that scripting support on a platform makes new developers.

Some people with stories very similar to mine, who I knew way back when: @manton2, @agiletortoise.
