If you’re just going to port apps, you might as well use React Native or Xamarin and target Android. Garaunteed a bigger win than targeting your ports for the Mac.

We’re now at the point where it’s like seriously, why waste your time with the Mac platform any more? https://t.co/2PjEdAdXYO

Something strange is happening on my Mac (10.13.6): I have an empty folder, owned by root. Trying to delete it in Finder will prompt me to enter my admin pw. But when I call [NSFileManager removeItemAtURL:] from my app, it just deletes it. Without being root. Is that right?

I put my email address in our Apple News+ guide for feedback and let me tell you, Texture users absolutely hate Apple News+. I get emails every day about how bad it is comparatively. https://t.co/NQQLluGsWA

I decided not to offer speed adjustments in clip-sharing for the time being.

Most people listen at 1X, so the chances aren’t very good that a given person playing a clip that happened to be recorded at higher speeds would actually be hearing it at their preferred speed. https://t.co/tUR46gv9OD

Dear @AdobeCare,

No $10 Photography Plan means I’m out, after using your product since 1.0.

Don’t screw your users over.

Sincerely,

Everyone using the $10 plan (many of which couldn’t care less about the cloud storage and would love to get a cheaper plan without it).

Just read @gruber s post about Intel constraints on processors holding back Apple. It’s holding back all PC sales. We use Dell at work and have had a month or longer wait times on laptops because Intel can’t get chips to them either.

One could argue that Marzipan is actually analogous to Carbon.

UIKit apps are to Marzipan apps as Classic apps are to Carbon apps.

The ultimate goal in both cases would be to eventually port to AppKit!!!

I wrote somewhere back when Adobe switched to subscriptions, that it was unabashedly forming a modern day "creative guild." The company was quite open about wanting to only work with high-end professionals, so the price doubling doesn't shock me.

The people make the difference, that's true. But it's also the problem. The people who can't be bothered to use AppKit and demand to just check a box in Xcode for a Mac port of their UIKit app are not the people I want in charge of the future of the Mac. Those people terrify me. https://t.co/RNVYf81kPY

All green at https://t.co/TpqvgXOzLE — but it appears the Mac App Store is actually down.

(I actually open the MAS every day to look at feature stories, as part of my job.)

Difference today is Apple’s not hungry and needing to placate developers in same way they did in 2000. Big worry is how big a clash with Mac UI there is. There were minor issues with Cabon/Cocoa (especially modal dialogs) Suspect much bigger issues now esp with dialog boxes.

Re: https://t.co/jNFapoibF7

The two prevailing theories are 1) debris (e.g., food crumbs) interfering with the butterfly mechanism (which this post demonstrates in one of its videos), and 2) failure of tiny/fragile moving parts due to fatigue, heat, or similar. (cont.)

An ARM based Mac would allow Apple to stop having to design against Intel’s broken promises. It could also usher in entirely new ways of thinking about the place of the PC.

? oh calendar master. Do you have a recommended way of handling Dates without a time component? Use NSDateComponents or is there something better?

This is an exhaustive and helpful teardown, but as a Genius who has taken in hundreds of these computers, the problem is the low keyboard travel distance combined with the large butterfly mechanism components, combined with debris intrusion. Dust is not the problem: design is.

Suppose a serious design flaw like the MacBook’s keyboard happened on a 2015 iPhone, would Apple still manufacture iPhones with that same fundamental flaw after 4 years? I don’t think so. (Most of the internal flaws of the iPhone 6 were corrected in the 6s, for example).

Great thread on the butterfly-keyboard failures, and why dust ingress probably isn’t causing most of the failures: https://t.co/3DpvdwF1IL

Which supports what I’ve heard anecdotally: the 2018 models with the membrane don’t seem significantly more reliable than the previous ones.

Every time I see people force quitting iOS apps something dies inside me. Makes me not want to go out in public. It’s an unsuccessful design at massive scale.
