Today I upgraded both of my fairly new Macs to the Catalina OS. Then I tried to run Skype. On my MacBook Pro, it wouldn’t load. On my MacBook Air, it launched fine, but wouldn’t work. Had to use an iPad. Is this Apple’s way of forcing a switch to the iPad from the Mac? WTF?

What’s even worse is how complete and unquestioned the faith of these Apple reps were in the wisdom of THE ALGORITHM. To be point of essentially credit shaming my wife, assuming her score must have been lower than mine, and roping us into a TransUnion shakedown to check.

Apple has handed the customer experience and their reputation as an inclusive organization over to a biased, sexist algorithm it does not understand, cannot reason with, and is unable to control. When a trillion-dollar company simply accepts the algorithmic overlord like this...

So nobody understands THE ALGORITHM. Nobody has the power to examine or check THE ALGORITHM. Yet everyone we’ve talked to from both Apple and GS are SO SURE that THE ALGORITHM isn’t biased and discriminating in any way. That’s some grade-A management of cognitive dissonance.

So let’s recap here: Apple offers a credit card that bases its credit assessment on a black-box algorithm that 6 different reps across Apple and GS have no visibility into. Even several layers of management. An internal investigation. IT’S JUST THE ALGORITHM!

So obviously we both furiously signup for the fucking $25/month credit-check bullshit shakedown that is TransUnion. Maybe someone stole my wife’s identity? Even though we’ve verified there was nothing wrong previously. Guess what: HER CREDIT SCORE WAS HIGHER THAN MINE!!!

She spoke to two Apple reps. Both very nice, courteous people representing an utterly broken and reprehensible system. The first person was like “I don’t know why, but I swear we’re not discriminating, IT’S JUST THE ALGORITHM”. I shit you not. “IT’S JUST THE ALGORITHM!”.

One great benefit to having a free app: I never have to go to App Store Connect to generate IAP promo codes for it.

So the text messaging infrastructure of the United States depends on a single fault-intolerant server run by a company no one has ever heard of? https://t.co/lEkQZJa3Dy pic.twitter.com/QZsM8T5xzG

Hey @Apple. If I am scrolling through 10,000 photos in your illustrious photos app, please...

STOP RESETTING TO THE BOTTOM.

FFS.

I really am trying to use your software but you are making it very very difficult.

This is the kind of shit we used to laugh at Windows :/

I’ve been upset for months that I couldn’t long-press on the refresh button in Safari to turn off content blockers anymore and I just found this stupid menu hanging off a totally unrelated icon that I never press. Nice, Apple. Real nice. pic.twitter.com/KoM1vlgc8i

After taking and comparing the AirPods Pro + Bose QC35s on a recent flight, here’s my take: both cancel noise extremely well, with each blocking a slightly different set of frequencies. But with big over-ear headphones I can’t rest my head against the window. AirPods Pro FTW 🤘

Since Apple started focusing on services they’ve lost the ability to be told “no”. https://t.co/iPQwL3JuIF

It appears that Apple Event handlers install a special assertion handler, and applicationDidFinishLaunching: (along with some other methods such as applicationShouldHandleReopen:hasVisibleWindows:) are triggered by an Apple Event, so NSAssert in those methods won't crash.

A WWDC 2019 session says commands added to the Mac menu bar with UIMenuBuilder would work on iPad too, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Am I doing something wrong, or did that never ship? See around the 5:40 mark. cc: @stroughtonsmith @mmackh https://t.co/F8wNW3wiZE

Hilariously, Affinity Photo is now (presumably temporarily) priced at the same as ONE MONTH of Photoshop for iPad. At ten quid, it’s an absurd bargain. https://t.co/ny66xmRjXH

Compare this to the platforms Apple TV+ is available on now. Such a half attempt by Apple. https://t.co/CBL0B7pK4G

SwiftUI uses the type system to make diffing so fast. When we use AnyView, we completely erase the type of view, and SwiftUI can't understand changes, it just rebuilds the view. Let's use Group instead. Group keeps the type and performance, and gives us the benefits of AnyView. pic.twitter.com/FxmMe0j7Wh

Karoy’s proposals are always delightfully thoughtful and well explained. This is well worth taking the time to read even though most Swift programmers likely won’t end up *directly* using it: https://t.co/9axnm7irFz
