Initial Thoughts on iPadOS: A New Path Forward Apple finally figured out it needs to split iOS and create an operating system specifically for tablets. The last generation iPad Pros are amazing devices, but iOS limits them to being large-sized phones. Looks like iPadOS is the operating system we're waiting for. Or maybe just me, I'm using my iPad more than my MacBook these days.

“Let’s say that, on average, projects go 40% over budget,” Flyvbjerg says. “You’d add 40% to the budget for your planned project. And then you would have a much more accurate budget.” The contractors are incentivized with additional profits if they meet their targets and penalties if they don’t.

How does Apple (privately) find your offline devices? This is speculative, but an interesting idea on how one can share private info with a central server (GPS location of a lost device), without compromising the intermediary:

All of this leads to a final protocol idea. Each time Timmy broadcasts, he uses a fresh pseudonym and a randomized copy of Ruth‘s public key. When Lassie receives a broadcast, she encrypts her GPS coordinates under the public key, and sends the encrypted message to Apple. Ruth can send in Timmy‘s pseudonyms to Apple’s servers, and if Apple finds a match, she can obtain and decrypt the GPS coordinates.

Apple’s Real User Indicator will tell developers when a new account may actually be a bot Interesting idea, and good luck with that:

“It uses on-device intelligence to determine if the originating device is behaving in a normal way. The device generates a value without sending any specifics to Apple,” an Apple spokesperson explained onstage during the event. The value is then “boiled down to a single value shared with your app at account setup time,” and “depending on the value you receive, you can be confident your user is a real user or get a notice you should take a second look.”

Is High Quality Software Worth the Cost? TL;DR "Customers do care that new features come quickly"

The difference is that the best teams both create much less cruft but also remove enough of the cruft they do create that they can continue to add features quickly. They spend time creating automated tests so that they can surface problems quickly and spend less time removing bugs. They refactor frequently so that they can remove cruft before it builds up enough to get in the way.

Does the news reflect what we die from? Rhetorical question.

As we can see clearly from the chart above, there is a disconnect between what we die from, and how much coverage these causes get in the media. Another way to summarize this discrepancy is to calculate how over- or underrepresented each cause is in the media. …

The major standout here – I had to break the scale on the y-axis since it's several orders of magnitude higher than everything else – is terrorism: it is overrepresented in the news by almost a factor of 4000.

Homicides are also very overrepresented in the news, by a factor of 31. The most underrepresented in the media are kidney disease (11-fold), heart disease (10-fold), and, perhaps surprisingly, drug overdoses (7-fold). Stroke and diabetes are the two causes most accurately represented.


We love to hate the government. Then along came measles. Also on the topic of perception vs reality:

When government works, it becomes largely invisible, taken for granted, wiping out both crises and the traumatic memories of those crises.
