The iPhone Mirroring feature:

  • Is great for that-one-app-that-is-only-on-mobile
  • Introduces a new paradigm for showing / hiding the window controls, could use a little affordance but pretty slick
  • Sort of makes me wonder why even show the home screen at all? You could probably get away with integrating the hardware to be recognized as native to the Mac and the apps alongside the native ones

Apple Maps should consider integrating an editor tool that empowers approved community members to update points of interest (POIs) and correct errors directly. Mapping services like OpenStreetMap already support this functionality, resulting in remarkable detail and accuracy contributed by community members.

The iOS 18 color customization could use some work.

June  11,  2024

Interesting how Apple redesigned the Settings app in iOS 18:

  • Explainers at the header of all the major sections
  • First party apps are now equally discoverable to Third party apps, since they’re all in the new “Apps” subcategory
  • The seem to be developing a language where the background (blue versus grey background) of some of the sections seems to pertain to their controls

AI generated art fills that perfect niche of “stuff I used to throw together for fun in photoshop based off some stupid idea”

It looks like you’re writing a blog post.

Would you like help?

  • So Microsoft re-announced Clippy after a 20-year hiatus
  • It now has a voice and is called Copilot+ (Plus?)
  • Makes for a nifty prerecorded demo
  • Will be curious if they’ve learned from their mistakes

  1. Yes, it really does work as well as those demo videos show.
  2. It turns out all those recent smart assistant devices could just be an app! (Not to mention it has access to all the useful features a smartphone already has.)
  3. It seems the stage is set for this to replace Siri. With first-party support for app and service integration, you have an opportunity for a very compelling new interaction paradigm.
