I presume that @Merchandise7X has already verified Toby Maloney’s North Korean passport. First-ever such residency at @hopsinglaundry (which reopens this weekend after a summer break). https://t.co/KWyCNwfkS1

If you’ve got any questions about the Apple Watch Ultra, I’m all wrist. https://t.co/2upB8gfwfW

The best thing about this copy-paste permission alert that is driving everyone nuts in iOS 16: the apostrophe in “Don’t Allow Paste” is the wrong one. It’s upside down.

In my opinion, Aaron Judge is hitting the ball well.

Title idea for next Bond movie: “On His Majesty’s Secret Service”. Perfect for a reboot.

Still my advice, one year later, after trying both iCloud Backup restore and device-to-device transfer with new phones this week. Device-to-device is the way to go. https://t.co/NeeHu0mowQ

On the one hand, I’m late, even by my own late standards. On the other hand, I’m up to 562 words in the footnotes.

I don't know why this classic product presentation of the Macintosh Portable by @gassee is suddenly making the rounds, but I'm glad it is! Especially after 3 years of canned pandemic presentations, the humanity and humor is delightful in contrast. https://t.co/agbbntk8bk

a fun example of what we can do with The Verge's quickpost feature: happy Stanislav Petrov Day! (and h/t @TomChivers for flagging it up) https://t.co/8HG6yMOl13

I’m assuming this is what the new button was built for.

Classic black stainless link bracelet still fucks. I was going to @ you @gruber for an opinion, but thought “let me see if maybe he mentions this combo in his review…” https://t.co/ntd0vAls37

@gruber I always remember the apostrophe rule of thumb: If it looks like a six, you’ve got to fix. If it looks like a nine, you’re fine.

Addict Steve Johnson in 2017 told me Oz gave him cash to buy heroin so his TV crew could film him shooting up. Oz also promised to arrange for rehab. 3 months later, the addict was still waiting for Oz to make good. @DrOz https://t.co/hRCEDAtskq

On this OS, the web was born. Its people went on to build Mac OS X, and iPhone; its frameworks still power SwiftUI and Xcode today. You can run the earliest versions of NEXTSTEP in the Previous emulator (pre-made image here: https://t.co/UZqTURImQW) https://t.co/f4mJOJ5IKd

Did anybody hear me on @thetalkshow with @gruber, ranting about how Mac preference UI should be "center weighted"? I practice what I preach. Here I am trying to reorganize some @FastScripts preferences UI and walking the walk. This is a bit too left-leaning as it stands... WIP!

@caseyliss @gruber It does, if you want to save off an 80+ GB encrypted tarball on your Mac. D2D is the best way. It’s easy, it transfers all the passwords, and it will do a copy-across of the health database and media which all require separate later downloads as they’re not in iCloud backup.

Oh yeah! iOS 16.1 makes it easier and more intuitive to set a home screen wallpaper. They are now peers rather than Lock Screen being the main and the Home Screen secondary.

The camera bump march of time continues. - iPhone 14 Pro bump is 4.18mm total - that’s over half the thickness of the *phone body* - including bump, the 14 Pro is thicker than original iPhone Cc @gruber @siracusa https://t.co/z5ykSQNXTJ
