Well, it only took 2 hours, but finally re-entered every password on the new iPhone. Ugh again.
RE: TouchID, it seems like even when it’s enabled, you can bypass it with the PIN or password, so again, what’s the point?
Ease of use. - rönin
I could see that if it worked every time. In setting up this new iPhone, I've been asked to authenticate about 15 or so times, but only 6 of those times was I prompted for TouchID. And it seems arbitrary as to which OS auth prompts are allowed to have TouchID: it's secure enough when changing billing information, but not secure enough when logging into iCloud? It's the same account! - Mark Trapp
iPhone password migration, ugh. 1) restore from other iPhone reset keychain, 2) TouchID can’t be used half the time, so what’s the point?
I think I just heard the iPhone 6 scoff at the iPhone 5 next to it.

If you submit a patch/PR to a project, be prepared that you may have to update it based on feedback.
As an OSS maintainer, I’m always surprised when people go radio silent after submitting a patch/PR, particularly when it’s not committable.
So that was fun. Who’s up next? Catalonia? South Tyrol?
Cataluña certainly wants to have a referendum. - Spidra Webster
Looks like Venice is in the running, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Mark Trapp
Interesting. I hadn't heard of that but Lega Nord has long been about separating Italy. The North pimped the South out for years to get international aid in the '50s onward. But the aid was siphoned off and the well-off North would like to conveniently leave the South behind. At least that was my impression of things. - Spidra Webster
California? - Eivind
@kfury The queen’s top hat?
Psh, Scotland and its “democracy”. If this was a dictatorship, the results would’ve been announced yesterday.
Oracle is turning into the beginning of season 4 in Scrubs: https://www.youtube.com/watch...
Continuity for iOS/Yosemite is okay, but all I ever wanted was a shared clipboard, and of course that’s missing.
Odd bit of timing that out here in the west—8 hours behind—will likely know the Scottish verdict the same time we’d know US election results
I’m for Scottish independence purely so there’s a chance at replacing "balkanization" with "britishization". "Britishislization"?
The former. It's got more shizl -- for rizl! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
But Balkan's already done it a second time since the term was coined. Seems unfair they should lose it to a minor balkanization like this. - Eivind
Side-eye at Apple’s order status: stuck at "preparing for shipment" for 3 days.
Huh, Yosemite developer seed today is DP8, not GM. Looks like we won’t be seeing a release until mid-October.
So what’s everyone pre-ordering? 6 or 6 Plus?
A barbacoa Chipotle burrito bowl. - Spidra Webster
Hm, does that come with a one-handed mode? - Mark Trapp
Burrito sans bowl would lend itself to one-handed use. - Spidra Webster

Force touch will be one of the new jedi powers featured in Star Wars Episode VII.

RT @jeffgerstmann: Unfortunately, the Apple Watch can only be used to listen to Coldplay.
RT @jeffgerstmann: Wasn’t in the market for a new phone, but look at that lizard!
Perhaps the worst thing about this is the inevitable competitors making terrible jokes about the overdub in their future keynotes.

“The big problem with the concept of the “gamer” (beyond its meaninglessness—there are far more people who play games than who identify as “gamers”) is that it’s inherently exclusionary on either side of the divide. If you cast judgment on the types of games other people play, finding them not worthy, not fit for a real “gamer”, you’re contributing to the same type of bullying that might have driven you into games in the first place. At the same time, if your appreciation of games leads you to fixate so thoroughly on “game culture” that gaming frames most of your outlook upon life, dictating what you watch, read, talk about or listen to, you’re closing yourself off to most of what the world has to offer. You’re willingly excluding yourself from the larger culture.” - Garrett Martin, “Why We Didn’t Want to Talk About “GamerGate”” - Mark Trapp
5 years ago yesterday I moved to Portland. I don’t remember what my face looks like clean-shaven. Those two things are most likely related.
The acquisition of FriendFeed continues to haunt me: just got my 8th (I think) ContentID claim about Downfall — FriendFeed! This one is from the guys who started it all back in 2010: Constantin Film. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Good grief. - Jennifer Dittrich
Re....diculous. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Got an email from Vimeo this morning saying they put it back and made a note on my account explaining why it should stay up so it shouldn't happen again. Now if only YouTube would do that... - Mark Trapp
It's down again. :( - NOT THE CRICKET
:( - Anne Bouey
:( I should get around to self-hosting it sometime... - Mark Trapp
Finally seeing Noah. Yeah, yeah it’s Darren Aronofsky, but seriously: rock monsters?
No, you must be watching The Neverending Story. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Oh great, now you've made me think of the Swamp of Sadness. THANKS MICAH. - Mark Trapp
No. It is Rock Lobsters! - Joe
ROCK LOBSTAH!!!! ( I totally thought of the same thing >.<) - Chris Topher
@mokargas Big Brother may be our sacking-of-Rome, but crowd-funded potato salad is high up in the running for our King Odoacer.
Raising $45,000 for a crowd-funded potato salad is likely the epoch for which future historians will mark the fall of western society.
Ah, explosions and ambulances: the sounds of freedom.
Don't forget the airlift helicopters. - Jennifer Dittrich
Ooh, haven't heard those yet: Portland's slacking this year. - Mark Trapp
When an ambulance flashes lights but no sirens, that's subtweeting, right? - Micah
I live next to a hospital, so I've seen at least one so far today. That's not necessarily odd for a weekend, but still. - Jennifer Dittrich
Micah: I have no idea what subtweeting is. Is that like the Sub-Mariner of Twitter? Man, what a lame superhero. - Mark Trapp
