The Vulture did not like Duas new remix album

Well, we are devastated to report that it takes over 25 minutes for something exciting to happen on Dua Lipa’s remix album Club Future Nostalgia. By that point, the pop revivalist and her hodgepodge cast of producers have already thrown in a verse of Neneh Cherry’s “Buffalo Stance,” spun Lipa’s “Break Your Heart” into Jamiroquai’s “Cosmic Girl,” and even put Madonna and Missy Elliott onto the same damn track.

It is not that bad. It could have been good if it were only Dua and some good remixers. Having some stars showing in the songs is only bad. The song are too short.

Microsoft plans for a new desktop application API is confusing

WPF is still best. I tried to use UWP a few years ago. I discovered that you could not make a desktop application with it. It was only mobile style apps.

I expect it to take many years before it is as good as WPF.

For UWP we have been in a constant state of ‘catching up’ on core functionality, and never being able to. While for Win32 we have been in a state of non-innovation, leaving developers behind because we have focused on bringing new features only to UWP where we can guarantee that guardrails are in place. We heard you – this situation is not making anyone happy and moving between the two worlds is hard,

Facebook is sorry it cant spy on you because of Apple

Facebook has apologized to its users and advertisers for being forced to respect people’s privacy in an upcoming update to Apple’s mobile operating system – and promised it will do its best to invade their privacy on other platforms.

Sometimes Theregister is funny.

Amazingly, despite Facebook pointing out to Apple that it is tearing away people’s right to have their privacy invaded in order to receive ads for products they might want, Cupertino continues to push ahead anyway.

The result is potentially horrifying. “While it’s difficult to quantify the impact to publishers and developers at this point with so many unknowns, in testing we’ve seen more than a 50 per cent drop in Audience Network publisher revenue when personalization was removed from mobile app ad install campaigns,” Facebook warns.
