state of apple from two perspectives – marco.org

January 23, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/01/23/two-states-of-appleTwo of the best pieces I’ve read about Apple recently:Grading Tim Cook: The optimistic business-analyst take. Tim’s doing great and the products are pretty much fine.Apple Inc: A Pre-Mortem: The pessimistic customer take. There are big problems that aren’t getting better.They may seem at odds, but I agree with a lot from both, and every Apple enthusiast and commentator would be well-served by reading and considering both.Apple can — and, I believe, does — have both a well-performing CEO and significant problems in its products that have me both worried and saddened as an Apple customer and enthusiast.

a world without the mac pro – marco.org

November 5, 2016∞https://marco.org/2016/11/05/world-without-mac-proIt’s looking increasingly likely that there will never be another Mac Pro. Here’s why that would be a shame.Pro buyers depend on Apple to make the hardware that satisfies our needs. And we’re flexible. We’ve adapted over the years to new CPU architectures, port changes, capability changes, price increases, and a slower update pace.The 5K iMac is a truly great computer. It’s the best general-purpose desktop Apple has ever made. It almost replaces the need for the Mac Pro. Many of us can get by with the 5K iMac.But there are some things that only a Mac Pro can deliver.More than 4 cores. Per-core performance has been eking out diminishing returns for years, so today’s newest processors aren’t much faster than those from a few

design for the present – marco.org

November 2, 2016∞https://marco.org/2016/11/02/design-for-the-presentIt’s hard to get anyone to agree on what constitutes “pro” use, but I’d say it has three core requirements:Reliability: Pro gear absolutely must be dependable, even when used heavily or in demanding conditions.Power: Pro apps usually need more of every hardware resource than consumer apps — at least CPU power and memory, and often GPU power or I/O bandwidth — and pros will often pay high costs for high-spec machines that won’t hold them back or leave them waiting.Versatility: Pro gear is used in diverse environments, often with unpredictable needs. Many pros never know when they may suddenly need an obscure port or feature, or when they will unexpectedly need to keep working on battery for a few more hours, and the consequ

the future of computing – marco.org

January 31, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/01/31/the-wrong-futureThe quarterly results are in and Apple’s doing fine overall, but the iPad really isn’t, with another year-over-year decrease in sales.Apple and commentators can keep saying the iPad is “the future of computing,” and it might still be. But we’re starting its seventh year in a few months, and sales peaked three years ago.What if the iPad isn’t the future of computing?What if, like so much in technology, it’s mostly just additive, rather than largely replacing PCs and Macs, and furthermore had a cooling-fad effect as initial enthusiasm wore off and customers came to this conclusion?The moving-average unit sales graph would look something like this, right?(Courtesy of Six Colors)And Mac sales might appear mostly unaffected, or possi

ten years of iphone – marco.org

January 9, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/01/09/ten-years-of-iphoneI’ll never forget watching the iPhone keynote live.1It was a cold Tuesday afternoon in New York. My hair was still brown. We were supposed to be working, but even David had to suspend his usual workaholism for a few minutes in awe of what we were seeing.Everything about the iPhone seemed impossible to the technology world of early 2007.“You can’t make a good phone without buttons.”“You can’t fit a desktop-class OS on a phone.”“There’s no way that’s a full-blown web browser.”“That has to cost a thousand dollars.”Yet over the course of an hour, Steve destroyed every rule we thought we knew.Not only was it truly mind-blowing at the time, but in retrospect, so much of modern computing was invented for the first iPhone and revealed

a letter to today’s young people – marco.org

November 11, 2016∞https://marco.org/2016/11/11/letter-to-young-peopleThe strongest despair I’ve heard about this election has come from high school and college students. I don’t know if this will really help anyone, and I hope it’s not patronizing. But just in case it helps:George W. Bush was elected during my freshman year of college. For the next 8 years — all of college, my first job, and the first two years of Tumblr — we suffered through that horrific administration. It was half of my adult life so far.It felt hopeless. It felt like we’d never have a functional government again. It felt like the damage would be irreparable. It felt like the good side lost and would never win again.But then, in 2008, the good side won, propelled into victory by Americans’ motivation after those regress

automatically test your database backups – marco.org

February 1, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/02/01/db-backup-testingOne of the issues of yesterday’s GitLab.com “database incident” is that most of their database backups weren’t being tested, and when they needed a restore, they discovered that most of the backup methods hadn’t been working.Untested backup methods that turn out to be missing or broken are extremely common. I can’t fault them much because it’s a very easy mistake to make: most backups, by nature, never need to be restored from, so you never realize if something changes and they stop working… until it’s too late.The solution is to frequently and automatically test backups by:Regularly downloading the latest backup from S3 (or wherever) and performing a full restore onto a clean server.Testing its validity in a way that a human i

overcast 3: design walkthrough – marco.org

February 20, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/02/20/overcast3Overcast 3 is now available, and it’s a huge update, mostly in the design and flow of the interface. I’ve been working on it since last summer, informed by over two years of testing, usage, and customer feedback.I designed Overcast 1.0 in 2014 for iOS 7, and it was a product of its time: it used ultra-thin text and lines against stark, sharp-edged, full-screen white sheets and translucent blur panes, with much of the basic functionality behind hidden gestures. That fundamental design carried through every update until today.My design goals for 3.0 were:Update the style from iOS 7 to today: More affordances, more curves, thicker fonts, less translucency, more tactility. App-design fashion doesn’t stand still, and many iOS 7-era designs

iphone spam-call-blocking apps – marco.org

January 8, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/01/08/call-blockersHiya creepily requires access to all of my contacts, which I think they transmit to their servers for vaguely specified reasons.Truecaller creepily requires my name, phone number, and email address to add to their directory, which I think might allow people to find my phone number under vaguely specified conditions.Nomorobo isn’t creepy about anything, but costs $2/month with an in-app-purchase subscription.I had Hiya installed for weeks and it never identified a single spam call, during which time I got about ten. I followed all of their voodoo troubleshooting steps, but it just never worked, so I deleted it. (Too bad I can’t un-send them my contacts. Thanks a lot.)I had Truecaller installed for a few days, and it correctly identif

apple’s statement on the consumer reports battery test – marco.org

January 10, 2017∞https://marco.org/2017/01/10/cr-mbp-battery-updateApple’s official response to Consumer Reports’ poor 2016 MacBook Pro battery test:We appreciate the opportunity to work with Consumer Reports over the holidays to understand their battery test results. We learned that when testing battery life on Mac notebooks, Consumer Reports uses a hidden Safari setting for developing web sites which turns off the browser cache. This is not a setting used by customers and does not reflect real-world usage. Their use of this developer setting also triggered an obscure and intermittent bug reloading icons which created inconsistent results in their lab. After we asked Consumer Reports to run the same test using normal user settings, they told us their MacBook Pro systems consistently deliv

apple fixes macbook pro battery life by removing time estimate – marco.org

December 13, 2016∞https://marco.org/2016/12/13/apple-removes-battery-time-remainingMy 15-inch 2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is pretty good in most ways, but it’s a noticeable regression in battery life from the previous generation. Apple claims it lasts 10 hours, but I’ve never gotten that — in a fairly light web-productivity workload, I average around 5–7 hours, and if I’m using Xcode, I’m lucky to get 4–5 hours. This seems common — many other customers and reviewers have noted similarly disappointing battery life in the 5-hour range.Apple issued a software update today to address this.You see, the problem wasn’t that Apple’s brand new, flagship, “pro” laptop’s battery only lasts 5 hours for a lot of its customers’ actual usage. The real problem, according to Apple in a statement to Jim

senator marco rubio reacts to snoop dogg's 'lavender' video's mocking trump

Snoop Dogg's video for BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada's "Lavender (Nightfall Remix)" has critics giving their hot takes. TMZ recently approached Senator Marco Rubio at Reagan National Airport for comment about the Jesse Wellens-directed clip, which shows the West Coast rapper aiming a prop gun at a clown parody of president Donald Trump. "Snoop shouldn't have done that. We've had presidents assassinated in this country before so anything like that is really something we should be careful about," Rubio said. "I think people could disagree on policy, but we gotta be careful with that kind of thing, because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem. I'm not sure what Snoop was thinking. He should think about that a little." In a recent interview with Billbo

victory must fight fire with fire if sydney fc turn big blue into dogfight

Allianz Stadium will be no place for the faint-hearted on Friday night, when Sydney FC look to all but mathematically confirm their ownership of the premiers' plate with a win over Melbourne Victory.The previous encounters between the two teams this season – which have both ended in 2-1 wins for Sydney – were bruising encounters with plenty of spite, fight and controversy. Victory coach Kevin Muscat expects no less on Friday evening when he predicts that Sydney will turn the game into a "dogfight".

silk road evolved as 'grass-routes' movement

Nearly 5,000 years ago, long before the vast east-west trade routes of the Great Silk Road were traversed by Marco Polo, the foundations for these trans-Asian interaction networks were being carved by nomads moving herds to lush mountain pastures, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis.

tactical analysis: dortmund 6-2 leverkusen | tuchel’s men hit six past the visit

Charles Onwuakpa writes a detailed tactical analysis of the Bundesliga match that ended Dortmund 6-2 Leverkusen.Borussia Dortmund took all three points in what was a generally positive performance, scoring three goals in the last fifteen minutes to prevent a late comback from Bayer Leverkusen. It was though costly for both ends: Thomas Tuchel lost Marco Reus on the verge of half-time due to a hamstring injury, which makes him unavailable once more for a long run of games. On the other hand Roger Schmidt was sacked on Sunday morning after the visitors’ terrible performance:  the Werkself’s manager had been under pressure all season as their inconsistency in the Hinrunde saw them rack up just 30 points, their worst tally since the 2006/07 season.Line UpsDortmund: Burki; Pisczcek, Sokratis, B

syrian refugee, 13, steals the show on the voice kids

A 13-year-old refugee from Syria stole the show on The Voice Kids on Friday evening with his rendition of Diamonds by Rihanna.Jean, who currently lives in in a refugee centre in Almere with his sister, mother and grandmother, had been in the Netherlands for just six months when the recording was made, the AD reported.At the time he lived in a temporary refugee centre in Dordrecht and thanked the centre staff in English for looking after him and his family so well.The three judges –  Ali B, Marco Borsato and Ilse de Lange – all turned their chairs when they heard him sing, but he eventually opted for Borsato’s team.

real madrid thrash eibar 4-1

Real Madrid have thrashed Eibar 4-1 in an action-packed away encounter in the Spanish La Liga.Los Blancos needed the win to forget what went wrong on their last 3 games.Karim Benzema was the star of the match without the likes of Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.The French player scored the first goal just 14 minutes into the game. 11 minutes later, Benzema scored his second, which was followed by a 3rd goal by Khamis Rodriguez in the 30th minute.Marco Asensio made it 4-0, before Pena managed to grab a consolation for the hosts.The 4-1 victory has pushed Real Madrid back on top of the league table, 2 points above their arch rivals Barcelona.

president trump slams snoop dogg over video

President Donald Trump has responded to Snoop Dogg's "Lavender" music video."Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!," the President wrote early hours of Wednesday morning.The video, which depicts a mock assassination of a Trump-like clown figure, has drawn a response from the President's lawyer and Sen. Marco Rubio, among others."It's absolutely disgraceful," Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer, said Tuesday. "Snoop owes the president an apology. There's nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president."Trump's tweet marks the first direct response to the video.

Pensioners cycling towards Ameland lighthouse. Photo: Depositphotos.comDutch cyclists union Fietsersbond launches its annual competition to find the Netherlands’ most bike friendly city on Wednesday.But according to Amsterdam university urban planning professor Marco te Brömmelstroet, neither Amsterdam or Rotterdam are in with a chance.‘Utrecht is doing good things at the moment,’ Te Brömmelstroet told broadcaster NOS. Nijmegen (which won in 2016) and Groningen (the 2002 winner) are also doing their best to improve the lot of city cyclists, he says.This year the competition has been opened up to the entire country and cyclists can fill in an online form to have their say.Among the subjects up for discussion: is a cycle through the city relaxing, are there enough bike racks and are the bike
