      @jspahrsummers @stevestreza @tonyarnold I’m with @codafi that FP conventions tend to fight ObjC. ObjC brought OOP to C with its own compiler (compare to CoreFoundation). Scala brought FP to Java similarly. It’s hard to change the world in macros.

        Really great insight from Marco >> @cocoasamurai: I agree with @marco its like a brand new App Store Gold Rush all over again http://d.pr/TBzB

          Session: Maximizing Battery Life in OS X
          robnapier
            Finally on the ground in SFO. WWDC, here I come. Wait, I still have that line… (the up-side is that there’s no point getting there at 4 in the morning or such nonsense :D)
            robnapier
              .@cocoasamurai if “C++ modules” means “Xcode doesn’t crash when faced with C++ ALL THE TIME and LLDB occasionally works” then yes, that would be awesome. (OK, and modules would be awesome too.)

                DFW✈SFO. Crawling my way to #wwdc. Annoying story why I’m so late flying out, but the truth is I wouldn’t have changed it. The extra weekend with the family turned out to be really nice.
                robnapier
                  Finally. RDU✈DFW. One hour behind schedule, but the next flight is delayed as well, so it all works out.
                  robnapier
                    And my trip to #WWDC begins… with an hour flight delay. I’ll get there eventually.
                    robnapier
                      Well, I'd hoped to make an earlier flight, but no dice; won't be getting in until 11:30p Sunday. I'll miss the keynote room for the first time since I've been going. Now the question is: overflow room or streaming?
                      robnapier
                        @chartier Agreed. My wife and I use it several times a week. It's really handy to know when I should start dinner, and when I wander out of the basement, I often use it to figure out where my family has gotten to.

                          @mpospese I'd love to catch up. I'll be at ⌘WWDC (⎇WWDC does sound like a blast though). Hopefully I can move my flight up a bit; right now I won't touch down until Sunday night (so no Keynote).

                            @griotspeak My wife is still a bit annoyed that I couldn't get XP on the machine we bought this year. She made me take Win7 off the last machine and reinstall XP. It's a funny world out there sometimes. :D
                            robnapier
                              @griotspeak Apple's recent success have often been due to ignoring what the current market looks like. But you have to commit to that approach.
                              robnapier
                                @griotspeak I'm not suggesting that new products need to target XP or iOS 4 or 10.5 to be profitable. They certainly don't. But you have to take a careful look at your actual intended market and respect what you find there. (Or don't, but on purpose.)
                                robnapier
                                  @griotspeak Depends on whether I want the standard to mean profits somewhere… For my open source work, I hardly bother with n-1; upgrade already. But my main commercial work is iOS 4 and 10.5 (32% of my customers are on 10.6). Drives me crazy, but true.

                                    .@griotspeak Because XP is 41% of our user base. And while we're a slightly weird sample, I don't think we're an incredibly weird sample for the Windows world.

                                      Wow, it's been a while since I wrote ObjC in the old ABI. Declare ivars? In the header? What ever do you mean? Thank you #appcode for doing that for me. Almost broke out #accessorizer again.

                                        @evercode never mind. I see how they’re doing it. They just turn off locking in settings. So you have to decrypt/encrypt the entire device every time it changes. So simple; so expensive :) I wonder how long it takes to secure the device after the switch.
                                        robnapier
                                          @evercode if you can rewrite the key shredding logic, then you could not shred the key if certain constraints are met (so you’d have to unlock when you first came home, and not again until you left). Does it behave that way?
