I wonder if these guys who make these fake ads think they're gonna get a job in apple's advertising department as a a result

I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

No mention of the Dynamic kerfuffle during the Swift talk last night. I'm with the oldies on this one; I like Objective-C and I wish some of these whippersnappers understood what it was good for before inventing less-useful successors. But I'm still in a snit that bindings didn't make to iOS (not least because I saw a very cool demo of them running on an engineer's phone once) and a bigger snit about dot syntax so it's no surprise I'm not the biggest Swift fan.

I haven't jumped into ObjC/Swift development (just a little fiddling around with ObjC every couple years) but have a love/hate relationship with dynamic objects and all they entail

I'm assuming by "bindings," stet, you're talking about the GUI type that's essential to things like MVVM and a slew of modern frameworks and I'm kind of surprised, although not shocked, that there's no support. The current world of higher-end libraries and GUI frameworks are possibly _too_ dependent on dynamism although, outside of strict implementation in the native libraries, I'm not sure if there's a good solution.

Having gone from backend Java programming that seemed to get more coupled to dynamic binding every year (Spring, any ORM solution, eventually every library that seemed to exist) to desktop C# with MVVM/WPF I can see where leaving Swift in a binding-less, dynamism-free world makes everything very literal and debugging much simpler, but it kneecaps the ability to implement any modern-styled libraries without leaning heavily on the ObjC runtime.

I'm guessing the interim will be abstracting all your foundational code in ObjC or relying on community libraries that do all that for you and implementing pure Swift solutions, but again, you're going to hit a debugging black hole.

On the other hand, there's the WPF-style nightmare where if you don't code things exactly MVVM-style, setting up bindings required some near-arcane memorization of the binding syntax. I think the debugging/visual tools for setting those up in Visual Studio have gotten a lot better, but I still grind my teeth thinking about running an app in debug and looking for particular binding errors in the logs due to the fact missing a binding didn't generate an exception in user code

μpright mammal (mh), Wednesday, 15 June 2016 15:09 (two months ago) Permalink

by dynamic it sounds like people are talking about introspection/reflection? these are both things you can achieve perfectly well in a static setting...

germane geir hongro (s.clover), Wednesday, 15 June 2016 15:52 (two months ago) Permalink

(also suspect that ppl aren't comfortable enough with protocols as a mechanism for polymorphism?)

germane geir hongro (s.clover), Wednesday, 15 June 2016 15:53 (two months ago) Permalink

I think that those two things are the most visible implementations in modern languages, yeah

μpright mammal (mh), Wednesday, 15 June 2016 15:53 (two months ago) Permalink

xxp there's some good stuff from better beards than me about why that's not really the case here, at least not with substantial extra effort. Things like NSCoding, KVO and the responder chain are harder to achieve, and were impossible in earlier versions of Swift. A Swift author writes: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11752983

Swift has protocols and people seem pretty OK with them, too.

stet, Wednesday, 15 June 2016 16:06 (two months ago) Permalink

with NSCoding I think the issue is what people would otherwise call "auto-deriving of protocols". that's absolutely solvable with "static reflection" (also known as "real generics").

germane geir hongro (s.clover), Wednesday, 15 June 2016 16:12 (two months ago) Permalink

I guess if we get all this without the Obj-C runtime etc, it'll all be sweet. But given we've got it all right now, I'm peeved at having to wait. I like Objective-C, basically.

all the things a journeyman programmer should be able to avoid but gets drawn into

μpright mammal (mh), Wednesday, 15 June 2016 16:30 (two months ago) Permalink

I imagine this discussion will disappear when Swift introduces higher-kinded types for protocols.

re: the apple/oracle software points, there are huge differences between using a company's software for your retail/supply chain/hr operations (oracle's software used at apple), helping port a product to your os (oracle db running on macos), and actually integrating another company's software into your consumer product

using oracle products to do inventory tracking or something isn't a product development relationship

μpright mammal (mh), Thursday, 16 June 2016 19:37 (two months ago) Permalink

can't even think of very many instances where apple is dependent on an outside _hardware_ company where they haven't created an exclusive relationship, own large parts of the company, or have invested large amounts in infrastructure in the course of the partnership

displays and memory are multi-sourced, processor design is in-house and not dependent on any one chip fabricator, cellular modems/wifi chips tend to go in waves and they seem open to switching on a moment's notice. if there might be a dependency on a particular material used in construction, they've gone so far as to nearly buy out that liquid metal company and had a near-lock on that sapphire glass company before they went belly-up

μpright mammal (mh), Thursday, 16 June 2016 20:07 (two months ago) Permalink

of course

it's a keiretsu/japanese style of hybrid vertical/lateral integration that is very efficient/effective

owning parts of the company allows apple to influence them to better align with apple's core competencies

lower difficulty parts can be multisourced

http://thenextweb.com/apple/2016/06/16/ios-10-apps-fast-af/

If you’re scrolling through an app like Airbnb, there are a lot of ‘cells,’ or blocks of data. If you scroll fast, you’ve likely seen apps jitter trying to keep up. That’s commonly called ‘dropping frames,’ and makes apps look a bit worse than they are.

During a session at WWDC, Apple noted the reason for those dropped frames was that content is loaded just before it lands on-screen. Those cells you’re about to scroll to were loaded milliseconds before you got to them.

Now, Apple is loading those cells well ahead of the time you scroll to them to make sure that when they do land on your screen, the scrolling performance and load times aren’t noticeable. Apple says 60 frames per second is ideal, but existing scrolling performance often misses that mark.

one month passes...

http://thenextweb.com/apple/2016/07/28/apple-tv-network-negitiations/

the reason we don’t have actual TV channels on the Apple TV is because the company tried to strong-arm networks — and failed.

Apple’s Senior Vice President Eddy Cue is said to have taken the wrong approach. In one meeting, he reportedly told TV executives that “time is on my side.”

Cue is also accused of bluffing executives by claiming other networks — specifically Disney and Fox — were already signed up.


i imagine eddy cue getting his head stuck in jars

I WAS gonna upgrade my iPhone this year (currently still using a 5S) but w/ more and more reports of another incremental change instead of a redesign should I even bother??? Or should I finally just sign up for that ATT plan that lets me get a new phone every year? Sheesh!

5S -> SE should actually be a pretty decent upgrade if you like small phones, and that definitely won't get an increment next month.

anyone here spent time with the "smart keyboard" + IPAD pro? finally have the € for the latter, thinking about the former so that I can leave the mbp home more often, but I need to be able to write while out.

same q for pencil: anyone here used one for annotating pdfs e.g.?
+ is there any reliable info on m/l rt text recognition w/ one?

droit au butt (Euler), Monday, 8 August 2016 18:08 (two weeks ago) Permalink

the only complaint I have about the smart keyboard is it feels a little "looser" in fit than it did originally and it's not ideal as a stand when not using the keyboard portion since it's at a set angle

as a keyboard it's pretty good, imo, although not as good as using the apple bluetooth keyboard, which I've done previously

the iPad pro is very nice hardware
