  • Trapped

    Today I released the source code of Trapped, a labyrinth HTML5 game experiment made with Phaser. The game: you are trapped in a labyrinth. The trick: the walls only appear as you get close to them. Well, that was fun to code! Kind of lame result though but hey, it's free software (as in libre). You can play it from here. Mouse click or tap to move around.

  • I've cancelled my order for a Macbook Pro late 2016

    tl;dr - After lots of hesitation, I ordered a new (high-end) Macbook Pro (late 2016), then cancelled a few days afterwards. The USB-C only connectivity, the limited user serviceability, the slow upgrade cycles and the lack of on-site warranty made me question my purchase. The premium price tag for medium-range specs and the lack of serious innovation did not help. USB-C connectivity only At fi...

  • Pas terrible le support Apple

  • Android 7.1.1 Bluetooth issue

Manufacturers are desperate to stand out in a busy market so they decide to "improve" the software, but them not being Google, they mess it up most of the time. Huawei P9 is a good example. The urge is too big for them to resist. Primum non nocer...

  • Macbook Pro late 2016 no thanks

    Quick follow-up after I cancelled my order for a new MackBook Pro: yes, it's slick and the screen is fantastic, but it's still questionable and fraught with limitations. The Good Fantastic screen and insanely fast PCIe SSD (both read and write). The Bad TouchBar: see here and there or there. The layout changes in each app, so you can't use your muscle memory. Reviewer found no feature that c...

  • Unsecured wireless access point

    Just finished configuring a TP-LINK TL-WR841N wireless access point. It also allows wired connections. About 20€ on Amazon. No fuss. Easy installation. I can even contemplate installing OpenWrt. Later. And it is amazing to find out that it ships with 2 vulnerabilities out of the box. WPS is enabled by default. Its goal is: to allow home users who know little of wireless security and may be ...
