  • Apple Journals is iPhone only. Apple Sports is iPhone only1. Apple Classical is iPhone only. Did Apple forget about the iPad? What should we conclude from this? Will it take years to come to the iPad, just like the Health app? Isn’t that easy to make an iPad version of an app?


    1. It’s a new app that is launching today. A surprise. ↩︎

  • Apple Vision Pro Returns initialcharge.net/2024/02/gurm

    I wonder, sometimes, about the Apple Vision Pro ending up in the drawer, just like pre-iPod era MP3 players. Time will tell.

  • I wasn’t invited to share my thoughts on this year’s SixColors Apple performance performance report, So I’m writing my own performance report. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • It’s time for the 2024-06 issue of my weekly creative summary! Not my best week, but good enough to share! ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ˜… I created an index for the past editions. Newsletter going out by email soon. ๐Ÿ“ฌ

  • I wrote a little article1 explaining how I’m using Ghost’s API to “browse” published articles so that I can select an article that I want to update.


    1. On Numeric Citizen I/O blog (link). ↩︎

  • It’s the perfect coffee shop kit for me. At first, I didn’t think of going out today, but I realized that I spend all weekdays at home for work. I guess it was time to see the world and enjoy a creative session at the coffee shop while listening to music. Slow vibes1.


    1. the photo wasn’t post-processed beyond what the iPhone usually does. ↩︎

  • My uneducated expectations tell me that Apple will announce Apple Vision Pro expanded availability to Canada during their highly expected and anticipated event announcing the iPad Pro refresh.

  • From an Idea to Blips

    As I wrote earlier today, I’ve been wondering about a possible use case for Scribbles1. It took me about 5 minutes to get my idea, and it is called Blips, Numeric Citizen Blips, to be more precise2. Blips will enable me to share… short blips of my digital life. I should be fun, noisy at โ€ฆ read more

  • Iโ€™ll be blipping soon. ๐Ÿ‘€

  • While I’m still waiting my invite for Scribbles (tick tock tick tock @vincent ๐Ÿ˜ฌ), I’m thinking of a possible use case. And I think I might be on the verge of finding one. My digital presence goes like this: Space โžก๏ธ Blog โžก๏ธ (…something small, tiny blips…) Blips. More to come soon.

  • Sometimes, I have an idea for what would be a short blog post, and start writing it, thinking Iโ€™ll share it here on Micro.blog. As Iโ€™m writing my article, it grows and grows and grows to a point where I need to reconsider where Iโ€™m going to share the article. When I cross the 500 words mark1, this is where it makes more sense to post on my main website which is dedicated to long and less in-the-moment thoughts. Iโ€™m working on a long one about micro.blog. Stay tuned.


    1. Itโ€™s not a definitive threshold. ↩︎

  • Since getting a MacBook a few years ago, my iPad usage drastically dropped, to a point where sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever upgrade my aging 2018 11-inch iPad Pro. Yesterday, I spent the whole evening on it for reading and watching YouTube. It was a reminder that I still the love the iPad form factor and I couldn’t live without one.

  • A satisfying exercise for me is to open Glass on my iPad and start to glance at photos and members. Each time, my goal is to subscribe to three members with photos that I like. Today, unexpectedly, I stumbled on the announcement of the upcoming Series feature. I canโ€™t waitt for that one. Pixelfed isnโ€™t really good at this, posting a bunch of related photos in one post.

  • Itโ€™s now official: Trump and his clown followers are complicit of Putin. Disgusting. Disclaimer: this blog hosts my thoughts and mild-venting about the war in Ukraine ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ.

  • About This Permanent State of Being Undecided With Apps

    I have been a happy user of Apple Safari for the last decade. If possible, I prefer using Appleโ€™s browser, thanks to its privacy protection and features. If something doesnโ€™t work in Safari, I will try Firefox. Iโ€™ll do everything possible to skip Google Chrome. I use Microsoft Edge because of its โ€ฆ read more

  • Craft release v2.7.0 is a big one. There are lots of improvements that should please a majority of users. I played with it while in beta and created a video to give users a visual look at what’s new. The Craft Bible also was updated to include the release analysis, now part of the subscription.

  • Folks, I think Iโ€™ve finally rationalized it. Donโ€™t think of it as a PURCHASE. Think of it as an advanced prototype that youโ€™ve paid Apple for the PRIVILEGE of testing.

    Thinking about the Apple Vision Pro, the right way.

  • If you’re a Craft user and are looking for ways that Gen AI could add value to the Craft Assistant, I wrote this document. I think there is an untapped potential in Craft because of minimalistic support for the ChatGPT entry-level model. Feedback is welcome.
