  • iPhone 12 mini is too mini for me

    I was thrilled to hear that Apple was going to ship a smaller form factor this year, as my favourite design of all times was the iPhone 4 (and 5 after that).

  • A certain kind of person

    Apple presented a great movie clip on the greatness of the people behind the Mac.

  • Apple One is not (necessarily) worth it out of the US/UK/AUS/CA

    Apple launched its Apple One service bundle on October 30th, which brings together apps like Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade and some extra iCloud storage.

  • Apple Airpods Pro replacement program

    Apple has finally acknowledged tha Airpods Pro issues I described earlier this year and has launched a AirPods Pro Service Program for Sound Issues.

  • Subscription is the new black

    I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel subscription fatigue. There’s a limit to how many I can add to my credit card.

  • Name Mangler : a hidden favourite Mac app

    Name Mangler by Many Tricks is a life saver when you have batches of files to organise and rename, and it’s super fast (and revertible). These actions could all be performed on the command line or via a shell script, but it’s so much faster to launch Name Mangler and get on with whatever you are trying to achieve.

  • Protein Spotlight gets its comic strip

    Last year, Vivienne approached me with the project of adapting a collection of Protein Spotlight articles into comic strips, both in English and French versions. The Geneva-based cartoonist aloys lolo was to create them on a monthly basis and eventually publish a book as well as set of posters. Could these comics be easily adapted into Protein Spotlight’s existing website?

  • Both AirPods Pro replaced

    I was at the Apple Store this morning exchanging my right AirPod Pro suffering from the same symptoms than the left one early March.

  • That kind of cat

    We chose her name on a pebble beach at Hermance in June 2007. We were on a family outing selecting pebbles to decorate the tiles of our bathroom. The children were 6 and 8, the original iPhone was about to be launched in the US, and I my digital camera was an 8MP Ricoh GRD (I was probably still shooting film).

  • Defer to the most cautious person in your presence

    Rachel shared a couple of guidelines she picked up last week that I find helpful in terms of decision-making, and explaning, around COVID-19 safety when interacting with other people. Having to make decisions without good data about the risk leads to all sorts of behaviours.
