preparing for our robot overlords

One of the jokes that often emerges in technical circles is that we humans are the biological boot loader for some superior robotic race that will come after us. Usually the joke is followed by an awkward chuckle.

Recently I got an iWatch and now I’m beginning to think that the whole thing might be a legitimate concern. This is the first device I’ve had that told me to breathe.

Awkward chuckle.

I turned off the app.

Take that future robot overlords.

Apocalypse averted. You’re welcome. Feel free to send me bitcoin.

San Francisco

Among the newer fonts in my inventory is Apple’s San Francisco which is the default font on iOS devices and the new MacBook keyboards.  This font replaced Helvetica Neue as Apple’s default font and for good reason.  @Kadavy breaks down the improved performance on screens as well as other aspects of the font in his post soon after the font was introduced.

I’m not observant enough to see all the subtle design differences, but I am observant enough to know it looks good and to know where to download it.  Apple has released both variants to this font and their respective weights for free on GitHub.  I’d highly recommend adding it to your library today.
