Can someone explain the logic in the goddamn window switcher Mission Control thing

It keeps shuffling my window order in apparently random ways and I don't know why it likes changing them

I like iTunes or Spotify to be at the end of the line, all the way to the right, but randomly it seems to appear back in the first 3 window places

I like my browsers to be together next to each other, but they too just decide to change places for whatever loving reason Hair Force One decided was logical

do you mean when they are all fullscreen spaces? turn off "automatically arrange spaces based on most recent use" in sysprefs

So where do these rumors come from? I donít know. My guess is that if thereís an intent behind them, itís that competitors (cough, Samsung?) within the Asian supply chain are attempting to sow doubt about Face ID. The narrative presented by analysts and certain news reports this summer was that Apple was still scrambling to get Touch ID working embedded within the iPhone X display, suggesting that Face ID was their Plan B.

but i'm eager to learn how many dozens got built for delivery on day one

a million of a thing is a lot of things

five or ten million boxed objects is lunacy

any number of million that ends up being a frustratingly low amount of complex things built by foxconn hands at an unending pace is entirely abstract despite it maybe still being low in the scheme of wall street shame

Apple didnít get caught doing poo poo. They allowed publishers to set their own price, just like they let app developers and movie studios set their own price. They just didnít expect the publishers to then go and loving collude to fix prices. (Since nobody else on the store was doing that poo poo.) The publishers were the ones who got caught, since they were the ones in the wrong. They finally had a good competitor to Amazon for ebooks and they hosed it all up.

What exactly was the purpose of the virtual home button on the iPhone 7/8 and then just switching to gestures on the X? Is this just some scheme to increase market share in places where the home buttons were expensive or almost impossible to replace & having a virtual one or no home button at all meant more people would buy iPhones? I once read somewhere that people in China and some markets would use Assistive Touch to avoid putting too much stress on the home button.

it was for waterproofing

the fact that 1st and 3rd party programs create entries for themselves willy-nilly. they're useful about 1/3rd of the time and i don't like having to janitor my menus.

does tim just make it harder to alter the context menu? or are mac app writers just less annoying?

i think the only way you can get something in there is to create a service, but those go in a sub menu and you can show or hide them in system preferences
