That "smart lighting" from Philips is about to spy on you in new ways you can't control -- naturally the company is claiming it's to protect you. This is Trump-level lying.
I’ve been playing more Mass Effect 1 yesterday. The story definitely picks up and is gripping now. The environments are very repetitive and samey, which makes it hard to not get lost sometimes. And I no longer want to romance everyone because one of the romanceable characters is obviously racist towards the aliens and .. ick! Still a bummer you can only romance the hetero combinations.
I think people are struggling with the idea that the app window itself can be transparent, when arbitrary content in it has a glass background of its own. Volumetric apps too are really just (UIKit) window scenes like any other, except they have a static scale, default to offering more z space, and have window controls that show from any side
⭐️ I've seen quite a bit of confusion over how Apple's visionOS apps structure non-window-based UI, where it's really not that complicated at all.
This is a trivial example that illustrates how you might create UI that looks like it’s not part of a window — floating, animating, and transforming in 3D — and what that means for windows, views and ornaments. TL;DR don't overthink it!
Loving the full text search of 4.2.0!
Opt-in if you are so inclined:
Passkeys are the first shot we’ve realistically had as an industry at replacing passwords as the default credential on the web and in apps.
I am *ecstatic* about the momentum that they have.
1. google.com, icloud.com, and apple.com shipped support for signing in with passkeys
2. And Nintendo!
3. iOS 17 shipped first-class support for third-party passkey managers plugging their data into all flows
And in November, maybe, Firefox support? Including iCloud Keychain?! This is happening!
Security is not just physical.
Safe minds lead to a safe society.

Gosh! So sad! Absolutely no one could have predicted this!
NFT Crash: 95% of the Market Is Now Worthless, Study Finds https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/currencies/nft-market-crypto-digital-assets-investors-messari-mainnet-currency-tokens-2023-9
One day I’ll write a book „how to build scalable system for the 95%“.
You’ll be able to summarize it with
- pick any mainstream language
- deploy on one server
- deploy Postgres on another server
- double the number of server for redundancy
So many systems I’ve seen lately could run off in memory SQLite and a replication to a CSV file.
Yet there’s a relational database, a document database, a key value store and four services deployed on k8s for all 100MB data and 2000 customers.
Keynote but in 3D and only for vision pro users
- send text messages to people in your field of vision only
- a sky viewer that labels airplanes, stars, planets and satellites
