Previously, Apple announced plans to remove the Home Screen web apps capability in the EU as part of our efforts to comply with the DMA. … We have received requests to continue to offer support for Home Screen web apps in iOS, therefore we will continue to offer the existing Home Screen web apps capability in the EU. … [Developers and users] can expect the return of the existing functionality for Home Screen web apps with the availability of iOS 17.4 in early March.
Underbart citat från Skatteverkets nyhetsflöde:
Det finns inga särskilda regler för den som är född på skottdagen, säger Vjera Catovic som arbetar som verksamhetsutvecklare inom folkbokföringen på Skatteverket. Hon berättar att de som är födda den 29 februari oavsett blir ett år äldre för varje år som går. Trots att födelsedatumet inte finns med i kalendern annat än vart fjärde år.
Va skönt. Grattis alla 6 670 personer som fyllde år igår! 🥳
Hörde du? Ett nytt avsnitt av Hej (resten av) internet! landade precis i din poddmaskin. Den här gången pratar Sanna och jag, bland annat, om mystisk, porrig Harry Potter-fanfiktion och ett nördigt, hemligt sällskap. Lyssna på Flödesdyk och fanfic. 🎙️
Long overdue, I finally came around to updating my now page. 👀 Phew! Here, a list of words teasing at what you’ll find there: sabbatical, open web, Strümke, movies.
Generative video is getting better with OpenAI’s Sora. Impressive and uncanny af.
The video above shows an older woman smiling with a birthday cake in front of her, surrounded by people who are celebrating. But, some things are off. Hands melt together, candles have double and triple flames, and an overall eerie vibe lingers over the scene.
Sanna made a new batch of ginger shots today. Yum! 🤤
I’ve been more or less stuck in bed with the flu since Saturday. 🤧 With a foggy brain and eyes averse to light, audiobooks and podcasts have been my sole source of input and my output has been close to zero. Today, I’m finally feeling roughly like myself again. Phew!
After Sanna has retired for the night, I usually tend to the fire for a few hours longer. When the flames hunger for more fuel, I grab the basket and make my way to the woodshed while gazing up at the night sky. 🌌
Lots of great advice from Rebecca. 🙃 (via kottke.org)
Nothing exists but social media. No one does anything offline. So the entire measure of someone’s commitment is how much they post about their commitment. Never mind if the noble cause is their day job, the thing they donate to extensively, the volunteer work they do; only the racket made online matters. Let the beginning and the end of thy commitment be the noise you make about that commitment (and others’ lack of commitment), and make it loud.
Went for a short walk after breakfast. A light breeze and −7 ℃ – pretty close to perfect. ❄️
Spending a few days working and chilling at the cabin. I took this photo just before grabbing the snow shovel to clear a path for the car to reach the charging point. It was quite a workout. When I came back inside, Sanna had already lit the fire and greeted me with a cup of coffee. 🥰
Loney Dear 🎵 is in town this Friday, and I had no idea until now. Sold out. 😩
Loney Dear + Cantus Domus - Ignorant Boy, Beautiful Girl - Live @ Haldern 2016 (Rockpalast Version)
I’m not in the least surprised people are using their Vision Pro headsets while driving. Even less so that they are in a Cybertruck. 😅
we really in the end times
The video shows a person “driving” a Tesla Cybertruck while using an Apple Vision Pro headset.
I love the prompt for Glitch’s February code jam: Welcome to my blog. They are also starting a blogroll and everyone is welcome. 🥰
We’re celebrating individual expression through the age-old medium of blogging. Start a blog, make a fan page about your favorite blog or platform, whatever the prompt awakens inside of you!
Oh, yes! From the Iconfactory’s blog Kickstarting Project Tapestry:
Today we’re launching a Kickstarter campaign for Project Tapestry: A new iOS app that aims to gather your most important social media services, RSS feeds, and other sources into a single universal timeline. All updates and posts together in one place, in the order they’re created, with no algorithm deciding what you should see or when you should see it.
This part of Apple’s announcement is interesting. It means we soon might have the real Chrome browser, Firefox browser, etc. on iOS here in the EU. But no web developers outside the EU will be able to test their websites and web apps in these browsers on their devices. 🤷♂️
New frameworks and APIs for alternative browser engines — enabling developers to use browser engines, other than WebKit, for browser apps and apps with in-app browsing experiences.
EU really hurt Apple’s feelings. 😬 Announcing changes to iOS, Safari, and the App Store in the EU:
The changes we’re announcing today comply with the Digital Markets Act’s requirements in the European Union, while helping to protect EU users from the unavoidable increased privacy and security threats this regulation brings.
That includes guidance to help EU users navigate complexities the DMA’s changes bring — including a less intuitive user experience — and best practices for approaching new risks associated with downloading apps and processing payments outside of the App Store.
Sanna och jag skickade precis ut vårt nyhetsbrev En skräck, en sci-fi och en sak till. Om du är en läslus som inte redan prenumererar borde du göra det. Nu! Om du vill, alltså.
Vi delar braiga lästips med dig ungefär en gång i månaden. För att vi kan. Och för att det är sköj. 📚
And, after about a week, the final Lego piece found its rightful place. 🌊
Jag fick en legoversion av Under vågen utanför Kanagawa av Sven i tredje advents-present, och det har sysselsatt oss under några frukostar och eftermiddagskaffestunder.
Sanna just told me Ray Nayler (The Mountain in the Sea) has a new novella out tomorrow. 📚 I had totally missed this. What a nice surprise! 🦣
Moscow has resurrected the mammoth, but someone must teach them how to be mammoths, or they are doomed to die out, again.
The late Dr. Damira Khismatullina, the world’s foremost expert in elephant behavior, is called in to help. While she was murdered a year ago, her digitized consciousness is uploaded into the brain of a mammoth.
