The keynote this year surprised me. I didn't expect the prerecorded video to be as exiting as the live one.
But I liked this. It went by really quickly, going from one great announcement to the next, never dull.
I haven't forgotten the embarrassing Hey debacle and I hope that Apple will change some of their App Store policies.
Do I want an ARM Mac? Yes, yes I do.
Universal binaries are back with Universal 2!
Time for ARM Macs!
I did not expect to see Foundation today.
It even looks interesting! 😀
Was that confirmation of macOS Big Sur? #wwdc2020
The redesigned Home Screen in iOS 14 looks really good. #wwdc2020
Seems like there is a path forward for Hey and the App store.
Late Friday night, on June 19th, Apple’s App Store Review Board surprised us by approving the pending bug fixes to the HEY iOS app that were held up all last week
I continue to use and like Hey and this is good news.
I published my first post using iA Writer yesterday. The experience was good, although dedicated blog software it's not.
Not that I want it to be.
It made a title automatically, which I understand, but is something I rarely use. Since I tend to write shorter posts.
But overall a nice experience.

WWDC is happening June 22.
To think that you can create one solution that will look and work the same everywhere is a fantasy.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.
Batty from Blade Runner
As a developer I read so much more code than what I write.
So this from Brent Simmons is spot on:
…I’d write code the way I normally would, with clarity in mind first.
Me wants! Now!
Jeremy Keith writes: Apple’s attack on service workers
This is not a minor change. This is a crippling attack on service workers, a technology specifically designed to improve the user experience for return visits, whether it’s through improved performance or offline access.
Time to try the Bravely Default demo.
Nintendo shared another Nintendo Direct today.
Lots of interesting games, even if some are older. Bioshock, Borderlands, X Com 2, Bravely Default 2, Burnout Paradise and more.
I’ll be buying some games in the near future. 🎮
I haven’t watched the Road to Playstation 5 video that Sony published earlier today yet.
Considering I don’t use my PS4 at all after buying the Switch, I’m not sure I’ll buy it on launch day like I did with the previous consoles. 🎮
And Apple knew I wanted a new iPad Pro with LiDAR Scanner and trackpad support in iPadOS
So according to Apple the New MacBook Air has more to love and is now just $999
