is there a way to make the green button on macOS do what it used to do instead of toggle fullscreen? (basically what it does when you hold ⌥, just swap functionality)

In 2020, iPadOS doesn’t convey app focus in split-screen mode. But window focus was apparent *over 35 years ago* on the original Macintosh. It was only black and white! But today when we have millions of colors, we don’t indicate focus well. pic.twitter.com/M0MN0Hq7NZ

There is a Gmail bug that is absolutely maddening during the last year or so where macOS Mail’s viewer window will appear and sometimes steal focus when the login fails (and subsequently succeeds). There is no legitimate solution (only silly workarounds) and it’s driving me nuts.

I'm not specifically talking about skeuomorphism or rich detail UI. I'm talking about how stylistically, tab bars, nav bars, and UI elements mostly look the same. That's kind of a bummer.

"Don't worry, the pendulum will swing back soon" is something I've verifiably heard for the last 6 years.

The only way we'll get it back is if designers are brave enough to do it. It's not going to happen on its own. https://t.co/iorzYSWf0T

When I worked on iTunes 10, Steve requested to remove all icons from the source list (sidebar). I created shaded monochrome icons as a last-ditch effort to save them. The request to *remove icons* inadvertently shifted the sidebar icon style on a system level for the next decade. https://t.co/J8xq46BJO4

I know why no one does this. Because if they did, they'd make less money. But if you're making money because of people forgetting they're paying you, that's not good money to have.

This can be a lot better. It should be.

I would really like to see companies embrace (and in the case of Apple, enforce) more ethical subscriptions. After any kind of free trial, I want to be prompted before I'm billed. Signing up to be billed after I forget about it is gross. We can do better than that.

(As far as Apple ecosystem subscriptions, I cancel every subscription immediately after starting a free trial so it doesn't automatically bill me. I tried to do that for News+, and... it will cancel the service immediately if I do. That's not... how any other trial period works.)

Why is the Health app asking for my birthday to set up an ECG? ... not only is this information readily available on my phone, but the Health app has this data in the Medical ID tab. It’s... right there? An FDA thing? So puzzling. pic.twitter.com/CaTj9XZmf7

When I worked at Apple, the day after iTunes 10 was announced, people on Twitter suggested “whoever designed that iTunes icon” should be fired.

Like hey, that’s me and Steve.

This is really stupid.

Lol Apple doesn’t specify a page background color on support articles so in Dark Mode it renders as a dark gray instead of white. Nice. pic.twitter.com/AeVzNMraZF
