i heard it can go up stairs by itself

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 15:31 (6 years ago) Permalink

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.

From that engadget post:

9:42AM Okay! We're in our seats and there's some Dylan playing on the sound system!

9:11AM Overall the mood is really jovial right now. It's basically a party in the U.S.A.

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)

is this big enough to have a webcam feed of someone else going, and to have it fill the whole screen, and then to walk down the street holding it up like the head is your head

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 (1 week 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").

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 (1 week 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 (1 week 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

anyone else on ios 10?

calstars, Thursday, 16 June 2016 20:06 (1 week ago) Permalink

are you posting from 10

how is it over there?

μpright mammal (mh), Thursday, 16 June 2016 20:07 (1 week 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

Zing works fine on 10. Haven't found any other apps that don't work either (only about 10 installed). New iMessage stuff is fun to play with. And raise to see the home screen is useful when you pull your phone out of your pocket.

Music controls on home screen are much larger too, finally.

Stability seems fine. Haven't noticed a change in battery life either, but only been using for about 6 hours so far

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.


i am disproportionately excited about this
