Tidbits for 2019 Week 13
- Geeks can daydream, but the battery world runs on lithium-ion, and there’s no replacement in sight.
- HomePod is now $299, down from $349. Don’t doubt it’s the best sound for the price, but without Spotify is not even an option for me. Maybe at $199…
- Amazon’s Project Kuiper would make my father-in-law so happy. Broadband satellite based internet for remote areas would make many millions of lives better. Go Bezos.
- The Powerbeats Pro are the AirPods sporty me would have wanted. The actual me finds the case too big.
- Simplify for Gmail Chrome extension brings a little of Inbox to Gmail. Code on GitHub and made my former Google lead designer. Update: works on Opera, and it’s really great.
- Great The Economist post on mistakes on their data visualization charts.
- Interesting take on The Wandering Earth movie. Really looking forward to watching it.
- Cloudflare’s 188.8.131.52 App with Warp VPN makes an intriguing case: more secure and faster than without. In waiting list.
