Siracusa Says

A fun collection of things John Siracusa has said on podcasts

Later is a Lie!

Later is a lie! And so are other dialog box buttons.

Podcast: Accidental Tech Podcast
Episode: 511: Moving to Antarctica

Marco: Whenever I see a dialogue that says like, maybe later, when I just wanna say, no, I never wanna do this.

John: They changed it, they changed the button in an Xcode update to say like, yes, and like, I don’t know if it says yes, but whatever it says, it’s like the positive one, then the other one says dismiss, which at least is better than later, because later is a lie.

Later is like, but here’s the thing, you hit dismiss, right? You’re not saying later, you hit dismiss, but you’ll be seeing that dialogue again.
