I have a hard time believing we won’t eventually get touch on a Mac just like we’ve gotten keyboard and stylus on iOS, bigger phones, different sized iPads etc. It doesn’t have to be a perfect experience to be useful for some users in some situations. I’d buy a touchscreen Mac.

Marzipan as a Path to ARM Based Macs

My WWDC Wishlist

  • New MacBook Pro with fixed keyboard & Face ID
  • CloudKit server-side code
  • Marzipan something something
  • Mac Pro announcement
  • Some love for Objective C or something that makes me feel Swift is finally worth it

Sometimes macOS Finder is taking several minutes to show new files. Trying to save another file with the same name says it already exists but Finder doesn’t show it yet. Not sure if it’s an APFS thing or High Sierra thing or what?

Success! My 2011 MacBook Pro with failed graphics card lives to run another version of High Sierra and Xcode!

I don’t know if this is progress or not?!

iOS & Mac devs: How are you highlighting markdown source in your app? Parsers like cmark are fast & reliable for output but don’t provide source map for highlight in editor. Regex isn’t my first choice and writing my own parser, I’d rather not. 🤔

Completely absurd.

Apple’s 30% tax on the App Store is increasingly absurd. Richest company in history, and it’s still taking 30% from your friendly neighborhood indie developers. @brentsimmonslink
