the future has already arrived. it's just not evenly distributed yet.
it should also be pointed out that the mac pro was not designed to be mounted like that, so there's a decent chance it's having to throttle whatever component is sitting at the "top" of the cooling triangle

firewatch is good, and i lost my poo poo a little when i found out it was published by panic software. there's even an easter egg-ish thing where they put audion in the game.

You see, but you do not observe.

Its probably the boldest of the things weve done thinking back to the start when the teams started working on [the device] and made proposals of some of the things we would ultimately do with the technology.


At the time, at the beginning, it seemed almost impossible. Not just almost. It seemed impossible. And to pull off what feels impossible and make it possible and not only that, but just something we love using is just a great achievement.

today in touchbar news i learned that if you swipe slightly to the left or right on the volume or brightness icons you can adjust them one notch at a time without opening the slider. naturally this is not discoverable at all and i only learned it because a friend accidentally did it and told me about it.

it's nice because it means the single click for one notch adjustment of the function keys is still there, which is cool, but i wish there was some way to know this was a feature without accidentally falling over onto my touchbar and swiping a little bit or however my friend figured it out.

i must be a ui genius because I figured this out immediately

but it still sucks because to raise volume you frequently end up moving past the touchbar, its not an elegant move
