#ShotOniPhone – Only Apple

Great surprise yesterday from Apple, a challenge open to everyone using an iPhone to take great shots and submit them to Apple. Simply share your photo on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #shotoniphone. Rules explained in details here.

This is exactly the kind of initiative that makes me be passionate about Apple. As a photography lover, this is a great way for me to see others people work simply by searching for this hashtag. I’m wondering if I’ll enter the challenge myself. 🤔

iOS 12.1.3 – Fixes for 2018 iPad Pro

Those looking to fix issues with audio devices hooked into their brand new and shiny iPad Pro with USB-C should look forward and update to the latest release of iOS 12.1. It is unknown which audio devices were affected with distorted audio though. I didn’t have any issue with my Yeti microphone except this stability issue while using a simple USB-A to USB-C adaptor. Now, I’m using a USB-C hub and all is fine. 🤓

Please Stop Stealing Our Data!

Great video from Rene Ritchie for sure

Time has come to have a right to remain private. My quest in 2019 is not only to focus more but also to fight for privacy and ownership of my data. This fight is being fought by carefully selecting which service I choose to use or not use.

About Microsoft Windows Nowadays

Recently read a thread on Twitter about the supposedly sad state of Windows these days. Please read, this is interesting.

Personally, I use a Windows 10 laptop made by HP at work. This is not an exceptional machine but it is nice nonetheless. I find Windows 10 to be, on the surface when you do not too deep things on it, quite nice compared to previous releases (Windows XP, Windows 7). It is also much more stable. But, as you’ll read on the following Twitter thread, the problems arise when you go deeper. It seems we’re doing archeologic work when we face relics on the ancient Windows versions when configuring specific and deeper stuff (like a VPN for example) and this isn’t a great experience. This is bad design, unfinished work.

Somehow, I cannot stop thinking that the tech world stopped doing great things on the desktop because of the smartphone revolution. They directed all their creative energy to invent, design and push the smartphone technology forward. This is sad.
