The rumour about Apple removing the 3.5mm jack in the future iPhone has wreaked
havoc around the Internet. There are several arguments for and against it, but I
think there is only one that is valid: it would make it impossible to create
accessories for iPhone without going through the MFI process.
Case in point, Apple has recently featured this application in their
advert “Ridiculously Powerful”.
This application would probably never exist without the possibility to
leverage a cheap and universal interface with the device.
I have moved the site to a more personal domain. From now on the primary URL
for this site is from http://yozy.net
Here is a theory. There have been quite a lot of rumours about a new “iPhone
6C” which ought to have the 6’s internals in a brand new 4” plastic body.
However, with no parts leaks this late into summer, the existence of this model
is not a given. (side note: there are no leaks for the iPhone 6S plus out
We know that Apple has already broken the pattern of older devices moving down
the price range with the 5C. I think this year the pattern could be broken
After the iPhone 5C was introduced, the Internet was swamped with articles
describing how much of a flop it was. The reality is that most people who buy
iPhones in October buy the latest and beefiest one.
So, what if Apple introduced the new, plastic, iPhone 6C in September but only
made it available in shops in December for the holidays? This would give them
approximately until October to ramp up the production, which would explain the
lack of the leaks.
Not only would they protect themselves. But they would also get an excuse for
the lower number of phones sold.
Well, first predition, first failure. My score so far: 0 out
In order to clean up all stuff I am moving the Gulf theme to a GitHub
repository. Currently it is available for QtCreator and Xcode. A Vim
port will follow soon-ish.
I’ve decided to simplify the website’s source. I went from 20 SCSS files to one. My goal is to serve no cruft. I’ve gone through all superfluous classes (bye bye clearfix). The grid is gone in favour of flex.
I’ve added my GitHub page to social links and changed the icons to SVG.
Next step is moving Gulf to GitHub, getting rid of jQuery and finally; writing.
I wonder if the people who complain about the Monument Valley in app purchase
also think that paying $30 for a Starcraft 2 expansion is preposterous. After
all, they’ve paid 60 bucks already, no?
Maybe sequels to movies should be free too while we are at it.
This has been in Rennes for some while now. One has to wonder what this
particular person’s feud with Google is to express their hate like this.
In any case, it is quite an impressive feat.
So I have fixed the atom feed. Hopefully.
So I have jumped on the bandwagon and decided to generate my website
statically. For you, it basically means that the site will be a lot
faster. For me, I can finally write stuff in markdown only and not worry that
some web-editor will butcher it.
Also, the search field has disappeared, but I am looking for a different
option. Either Google custom search or Bing. I will see.
Long story short:
If you want to use Google Chrome on Windows, uninstall AVG
