The Pixel finds itself in no-man's-land – perceptually, it's not quite an iPhone, nor is it a typical Android phone. And I've observed that, generally, techies from both sides of the fence strongly dislike it.

SuperDuper! is the hands-down best MacOS backup software. I've been using it for ages and ages. For the first time in those ages, I needed support and @dnanian was so quick to reply. His answer fixed the issue. Simple as that. Best money one can spend for digital peace of mind.

That’s the thing. It’s not small! It’s their biggest pro market!

Something like this has happened to me, too. I was checking out a couple of the watches on the try-on table when a salesperson told me that I had to make an appointment to try them on. That seems unnecessarily precious.

What a stupid retail experience. The stores were better when they sold boxed software and the Genius stood behind bars. https://t.co/5PVKVbpnIZ

Interesting. Submitted a map fix to Apple and it was fixed in less than a week. Also they sent a push notification to let me know they’d fixed it.

And much cheaper.
The price sky rocketed at the same time it got way less capable and unreliable. Great combo… https://t.co/WzXjjX5il1

I sure hope Apple soon gets through this period of problematic hardware (MacBook keyboards), “Where is it?” hardware (Mac Pro), and of new languages and frameworks that do mostly what the old ones did, only differently (Swift, Marzipan). Bring back “Insanely Great”!

After all, pros, developers, and hobbysists are the people that feed the iOS ecosystem with content, apps, and new ideas. Mac and iOS devices already support each other in a virtuous cycle, but that could be stressed more by producing machines that pros and geeks truly love.

The success of the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch relieves much of the burden from Macs to be the “computer for the rest of us”. It means the Mac can stress power and flexibility as a platform for pros, a tool for developers, and a playground for hobbyists.

I think more and more are realizing ‘privacy’ is becoming an excuse for poor products at Apple. And not something that makes our lives and work easier

I tend to think the reason Windows is recovering these days is because they stopped doing universal apps that scaled all the way from phones to desktops. Apps that function over just tablets and desktops is a much more reasonable target that doesn't spread dev effort. https://t.co/9p75ZGDLxh

I do that Spotlight trick for opening apps, where you hit the keystroke and start typing the name.

And I’m so tired of launching Photo Booth when I want to launch Photos.

While I've got your attention, @UINT_MIN… there's no way to have this ObjC method:
- (nullable NSNumber *)xyz;
Show up in Swift as:
func xyz() -> Int?
Without using NS_REFINED_FOR_SWIFT and adding a Swift file to the project, right?

I think both are true. Apple is so used to vertical integration on the iOS side that it doesn’t really know how to design Macs anymore. https://t.co/CRSfmCQsPd

Design is how it works, and I'm a computer professional, so I want a pro laptop.

Five things.

1. Reliable keyboard
2. See #1
3. Hardware ESC and FN keys
4. Inverted-T arrows
5. Build-to-order ports

It’s sad that four of my five requests are keyboard-related.

The reliability and usability failings of the MacBook Pro are rooted in thinness and weight-saving—yet Apple makes the MacBook Air to optimize for those design goals. Let’s face it. Apple doesn't make a pro laptop today. Sticking “Pro” on the end of the name does not make it so.

The keyboard on the MacBook Pro (mine’s a year or more old) is so fucking annoying and shitty.

gah. This is my livelihood.
