My optimizer uses content-aware inpainting to fill in all the wasted whitespace in the code, repeating the process until it compiles.

Conspiracy theory: There's no such thing as corn. Those fields you see are just the stalks of a fungus that's controlling our brains to make us want to spread it.

I'm not sure how much Randall understands that corn - not huitlacoche - is what is controlling our brains.

My MRI research shows a clear correlation between the size of the parietal lobe--the part of the brain that handles spatial reasoning--and enjoyment of 3D Doritos®.

Is all this talk about iPhones supposed to be ironic or what?

You don't need to do that anymore. You can just hover on the desktop now, and you can long-press on mobile.

You can't long-press in News+. OTOH, you can't see the comments in News+...

Also that feature used to work in the official iOS app but is broken currently

Looks like it works fine in the latest beta. I don't have the old app to check, but it will definitely work when this beta gets released.

Also, for the record, I like folks who share the Alt Text. It gives a place to just talk about the alt text, which for a comic as popular and single-paneled as XKCD, is a nice benefit.

@samuel: looks to be hardware specific. On my iPhone 6S+ long presses on images do nothing – the menu never displays (I tried with and without 3D Touch enabled) — but after powering up my old iPhone 4S, I confirmed that the same version of the app works there. Both devices are running iOS 9.0.2.

THANK YOU! I check my feed on my old iPhone and there is no way to see the alt text at all, even directly on the site. I really appreciate you doing this!

They are right. It's broken on my 6S as well. Long press no longer works.
