Further to my last post:

If I was forced to use the iOS version of Firefox, Today I Learned would be a non-starter. And that’s just my tiny little speck of dust in the world, let alone all of the other ideas killed by app-store restrictions.

The Picture-in-Picture feature in Firefox is pretty good. As such I expect Google to break it pretty soon.

Wait… is it true that you can buy ads on Facebook within the iOS app, using Facebook’s payment system?

Apple: We love rule-breakers 😍

Also Apple: No not like that

Apple forcing Automattic to ruin the WordPress app with IAP is a great example of how hard you can try to lose the trust of your most passionate supporters.

Even if Apple claim that a mistake was made, it doesn’t matter; they should not be shipping this junk of an experience.

I’ve just spent less than an hour reorganising my iPhone home screen. Apple have nailed these new features and I’m even using the Today View more and now have a single page – no dots! – and considering this is the first version, on a beta, it is suprisingly slick:

We’re so lonely in our modern world that we are willing to corrupt the foundations upon which we have built our technological marvels.

We talk about our decisions as if they are supernatural forces, impossible to stop or change.

Then we hide from responsibility; cowards in all.

Let’s see what happens

That’s pretty nice!

Somebody needs to tell me why I shouldn’t be using the iOS beta. 😬

If somebody could find a way to oblterate the “slack bot”, that’d be great. Piss off, Clippy.

One of the things I’ve been delaying is setting up my own server. Getting to the point where the cost is becoming out-weighed by the likely benefits. πŸ‘€

The physical form of the 11-inch iPad Pro is to laptops as the original iPhone SE to phones. 🀀

If Mozilla falls apart, and Firefox inevitably follows suit, I genuinely don’t know what I’ll do. Using Edge is pointless if it’s just a less good Chromium browser.

Rarely as crestfallen when realising that smart people make a podcast together for the mainstream but the feed is inevitably corrupted by the presence of other, less compelling individuals.

The fall of Mozilla would be a huge blow to the open web. For many people, the internet would become even more synonymous with the silos whilst stand-alone websites would lose further ground on the app-centric model.

This would be terrible but not that surprising.
