WWDC, A Wish List (2019 Edition) – MacStories

Great wish list for WWDC by Steve Troughton-Smith for MacStories. The items that resonate most with me? First and foremost, a terminal environment for iOS:

Much like the file system, for a certain class of user the need for a command-line environment of some kind hasn't gone away as I'm sure Apple had hoped.

As I mentioned in my iPad Pro Impressions article a few weeks ago, I’ve been using iSH, and while its a good start, something native from Apple would be significantly better.

Also mentioned that I pine for: much-improved support for USB devices, including external storage, and a “textual” interface to Shortcuts for scripting. He also makes an argument for virtual machine support in iOS, but I think that’s pretty unlikely (though would be welcome).

 
 

The four remaining teams are challenged to demonstrate their skills with chocolate, and for the first challenge, they must rely on their patisserie knowledge to succeed in a test where the recipe is a secret.

Happy to see a new iPod Touch released. Great device for kids. I just wish they’d update it more often, and release a re-design which matches newer design language.

 

Watched Split (2017)

Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him — as well as everyone around him — as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
