    The last week I have been writing on a new iOS project. I hadn't had so much fun during work for ages.

    Learning new things is fun, and the iOS ecosystem is pretty neat!

    I'm rolling on the floor laughing – „It took millions of years for mankind to evolve. Now they're hunched over cellphones, playing with your balls.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EC7H99-7wxk

    I have to face it: I'm no longer target audience for a MacBook Pro. They dropped all ports, still only 16GB RAM and still an old CPU. This is not what I expect from a pro notebook. I like the idea of the touch bar, but it doesn't compensate the missing features.

    After careful consideration we decided not to buy a new MBP but instead bought a Tuxedo Notebook which I can get with 32GB RAM, a fast i7 Kaby lake CPU and a lot of ports (inluding a network port).

    Christian Kruse,

    Does Google really do hiring tests like this? I can't belive it, this seems so dumb. The answers the guy gave have all been correct and the recruiter obviously didn't know anything about CS.

    If this is true that would explain a lot…

    It is impressive how none of the shiny new iOS-macOS features work for me.

    • Handoff? Doesn't work at all, never has, neither synchronized tabs nor email nor accepting calls on my mac or the iPad.
    • Universal Clipboard? Doesn't work.
    • Unlock with watch? Doesn't work, I don't even get the box to enable it.

    I did the complete Apple dance more than once (disable/enable iCloud, disable/enable 2 factor authentication, reboot devices, etc, pp). And the worst of all: I am not able to debug that. How would I?

    Just works my ass.

    Christian Kruse,

    That feeling when you compile a piece of code you have been working on for several hours for the first time...
