• On iPadOS, I wish I could tap outside a window (Stage Manager being active) to dismiss the front app and return to the Home Screen. Iโ€™m a Mac user too, so this is something expected. Why not on iPad?

  • Iโ€™ve been baited into writing about touch screen Macs once more

    I donโ€™t think these Macs would look like todayโ€™s clamshell MacBooks, they would have a new form factor more similar to iPads.

    What if a touchscreen Mac only allowed for scrolling content with fingers? If the touchscreen Mac is not convertible, what other use of touch than scrolling would people do with a touchscreen Mac? What are people doing on Windows with a touch screen, really?

  • Thought of the hour: I don’t think I’ll ever buy the Magic Keyboard for the iPad, thanks to having a MacBook Air. Yet, I do see that it is really improved compared to previous gen.

  • When you think about it, not being able to mount an iPad as a USB drive on the Mac to do some files management, in 2024, it’s a bit … frustrating? In that respect, I do join my voice to those who think iPadOS is lacking in many areas, small and bigger.

  • Since getting my new iPad, I decided that this would be the only device that I use when eating launch because it is smaller and I reduce the risk of food falling on my MacBook Air keyboard. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  • Itโ€™s Micro.camp day and Iโ€™m looking forward to it! This will be my first! @manton @vincent @jean

  • This process of having to restore purchases to re-activate in-app purchase for each subscription even after a iPad migration or restore from the Mac is painful. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

  • Skipping Nano-Texture Display on iPad โ€” Why?

    After spending half an hour in the Apple Store comparing iPads with and without the nano-texture display, I came to the conclusion to skip the nano-texture display and here are the reasons why: The display doesnโ€™t provide a paper-like sensation when using the Apple Pencil. There is a subtle โ€ฆ read more

  • Finally

    Finally got the new iPad Pro: 11-inch, 512GB of storage, which means “only” 8GB of system RAM and no nano-texture display. I made the decision after spending 45 minutes testing the new iPad. The nano-texture display is super nice to the touch, but it does reduce image crispiness. With โ€ฆ read more

  • I’m curious to know if any of you are using Finder’s Tags. Why do you use them? Do you find them reliable? Thanks!

  • There is one thing that I really want to try and master with the new iPad that I couldn’t do before: explore and learn Final Cut Pro for iPad. It seems a more approachable version than on the desktop. Am I wrong?

  • Mind Blown Again

    I really liked the OpenAI short keynote, especially the few jabs at Google. What OpenAI is doing is simply mind-blowing. I’m still trying to wrap my head around all this. What isn’t clear, though, is as a paying member of ChatGPT, why would I continue to subscribe if I don’t use โ€ฆ read more

  • To those who reviewed the new iPads and concluded that the hardware is great but iPadOS is the limiting factor: it is becoming tiring. The iPad is not and probably will never be a Mac. If you wanted utter flexibility, it’s the Mac. Why is it so hard? Can you just move on to something else? Thanks.

  • Having to authenticate with Wordpress just to like a blog post is so โ€œtiredโ€.

  • Posted a photo on my Ko-fi page this morning. It’s for supporters only. I shared some thoughts about street photography. I decided to use that page to share more personal stories that I don’t share elsewhere. It’s only the beginning. It will take time to open up more. It’s a journey.

  • My old camera is up for sale on eBay (link). Just saying. If interested, let’s talk hello@numericcitizen.me. Tell me you saw this on Micro.blog (or Mastodon / Bluesky).

  • Missed the opportunity to order an iPad Pro with nano texture glass and get it before my summer vacations on Jun 24th. Not great.

  • If OpenAI upcoming announcement is about launching a search engine, I’ll take it in a heart beat. Anything that is challenging Google’s dominance is a win for all, even for Google.

  • Location check in ๐Ÿ—บ โ€” Last stop: Rome, Italy. Going back home soon.

  • Apple should remove that ad and say โ€œWeโ€™re sorryโ€. Itโ€™s a wrong message. It as nothing to do in promoting the iPad Pro. 9to5mac.com/2024/05/0…
