@globalc the issue is that small outfits like mine (or anything remotely "indie") now depend on getting into Arcade if they want to make any profit at all. Play Store income is dismal at best, and App Store (Not Arcade) probably will now be the same. Time to look for other ways to earn money, I guess. ;)

I just realized my utter disappointment that I didn't do a PhD.

Because "Doctor Martin Pittenauer" is perfectly singable to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song.

Out of the 50+ titles currently on Apple Arcade a mere 10 have support for controllers.

As a developer Apple Arcade worries me. A lot. Are players going to pay 5 bucks for your game if they can get 100 for the same price? Time will tell.

The only hint that really excited me about the new stuff Apple showed today are the ultrawide lense, night mode and some of the video features. Maybe it's me.

Good luck to anyone thinking about releasing an iOS game this month, or maybe even this year. ;)

Watching UK parliament on Twitch seems like a perfect match in 2019.

After reading a few papers stereoscopic synthesis seems doable. Excited to see what (if anything) gets announced next week.

What I don't get about the Apple "Cardboard AR" rumors: Where is the stereoscopic image of the environment coming from? Synthesized via multiple FOVs and depth sensing?

I sure hope Apple B389 devices are small enough to put them on a cat collar.

I feel now that streaming services start canceling shows I loved, I'm loosing interest in them. Just hoping Bezos will continue to be a fan of the Expanse, I guess.

For some it is “a revolutionary mobile phone,” a “widescreen iPod with touch controls” and a “breakthrough Internet communications device.”
For me it's half communication device and half cat pictures taking machine.

I’d like to unsubscribe from this reality, please.
