Delta, the Emulator App, Changes Logo After Suggestion From Adobe Lawyers

@daringfireball I noticed the similarity, but didn’t think it was an issue since Adobe seems to be using those two letter, element table style logos on iOS.

I'm looking for people with Vision Pros to give me some feedback on the PCalc About screen. I think it's at the point where it's fun to play around with (if still wildly pointless). You can join the beta here:

Thanks!

Thoughts on Apple no longer including stickers with new devices to reduce waste:

marcintosh,
@marcintosh@mastodon.social avatar

@gruber I like them and I use them, but I know I’m an outlier. I know most of them end up in the waste stream and in the quantities Apple makes, that’s a big deal so I’m okay with them being reduced or eliminated.

My iPhone 15 Pro doesn't hold onto USB-C cables very well anymore, and they always fall out or flake out.

(And I only use the USB-C port for Xcode and travel charging, so it's not from overuse.)

Anyone else have this happen? Is this most likely a "crap in the port” 5-minute-fix-at-an-Apple-store situation, or a hardware-repair I'll-be-without-my-phone-for-some-days-and-need-to-move-into-an-old-one situation?

@marcoarment Probably lint keeping the cord from going in all the way. Clean out the port with a toothpick.

@siracusa Did you see specific language somewhere that shows the EU is bending the definition of monopoly or is it possible they mean a monopoly of app stores on iOS?

@daringfireball Personally, I would say "X/Twitter" because a) it leads with the current proper name in a standard "term followed by clarification" format, and b) it also reads as "ex-Twitter."

@daringfireball “it’s not clear to me at all why Journal, say, is now built into iOS 17 but Sports is only available from the App Store.”

I think it’s the betting odds. I’m not sure that’s allowed in every market/state. Having to download the app is high level opt in. In fact, for people with a gambling problem they should probably be off by default. Maybe even include the “if you have a gambling problem” blurb, too.

Launching apps via voice is often quicker than navigating to the app on the home view (especially because you can’t arrange apps on the home view). But:

“Siri, open PEE-calc” = launches Peacock

“Siri, open puh-CALC” = launches PCalc

marcintosh, (edited )
@marcintosh@mastodon.social avatar

@gruber Interesting test - I typed ‘PCalc’ into a note and had Siri speak it. She got it right. But if I ignored autocorrect and left it as ‘Pcalc,’ she says, ‘Calc’ as if the P is silent.

Not sure what it means, but it feels like it means something. 🤔
