最近在加州旅行的时候总会闲的去别人的博客乱翻。这不就从 Om Malik 的博客里翻到了对 Reasons to be Cheerful 的介绍——

It doesn’t help that media is dominated by doomsday narratives. We all need something positive to hold on to. Well, there is a new magazine called Reasons to Be Cheerful.

旧金山的海雾

2019/9/13

夏天的时候只在旧金山的待一天就知道这个海湾城市有多么多变——傍晚海雾从山的那一头滚过来、充满整个海湾,挡上金门大桥,挡上所有的山头。开车到金门大桥北边的山上,只能听见一刻不间断的船只鸣笛,但啥也看不见。

上午海雾会从金门大桥这个海湾出口流出去。一会能看到露出的金门大桥桥墩,快中午的时候才想掀起盖头的新媳妇,露出了自己的真面目。

The Siri Pie Chart

  1. An accidental touch on Apple’s greatest 21th century invention: the tacky Touch Bar on your majestic MacBook Pro.

  2. The non-existent “Hey, Siri” that Siri thought it heard but actually came from your casual conversation; or some dialog in BoJack Horseman, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, or you favourite sit com.

六旗魔术山

2019/9/8

从小就因为《过山车大亨》了解了六旗游乐园。这个令人着迷的游戏我从 2003 年左右一直玩到了 2011 年高中毕业,甚至后来 2018 年又从 Steam 上下载了重温经典,正经是一个前后玩了 15 年的游戏。

但也是十五六年后我才亲身进到一个真的六旗游乐园里,在 Labour Day 的第二天,开车顶着 37 度的高温来到 LA 北边的魔术山。不得不说园区的装潢布置唤醒了小时候对于游戏里游乐园的记忆——园区布局相似,最大的 Goliath、Twisted Colossus 都在公园一角;加速式过山车 Superman 的轨道横贯整个园区中央;另一角是 Viper 和 X2。

I have three camera apps on the App Store under my name, and I’m tinkering with two others that haven’t seen the store yet. I thought it was time I create a framework that wraps all the camera features and open up enough APIs so that —

  • I can easily deploy another camera app that takes photos;

  • I don’t have to interact with Apple’s AVFoundation framework which, while providing all the control capabilities, is cumbersome for an app that captures still images;

  • I can have all the device control logic in one place, and only update them once.
