Some much needed comedy relief for the crazy time we're living in.
In this one-off special, Charlie Brooker returns to our screens for the first time since his Bafta-winning 2016 Wipe to take a look at life under lockdown.
As well as coverage of the crisis itself, Charlie also explores what the public have been watching to while away the hours.
The production value is great, despite being filmed at home. It was a great job from all involved. Available for another 29 days on BBC's iPlayer, go watch it if you haven't already.

Beautiful website that spells out the different aspects of Artificial Intelligence in plain English. Put together by the Oxford Internet Institute and Google, it's pretty, interactive and most importantly, it's fast. You don't even need to click through to see more detail, the short descriptions are enough to give you an idea of what the phrase means in the world of AI.

I rarely link to traditional watches as I don't wear them, but before I owned an Apple Watch, I actually went without one for a while. Mainly because the watches I wore were metal and created a lot of noise while using a computer. For years I would wear a watch to walk and take it off so I could type in peace.
The last proper watch I owned was an inexpensive Lorus which I actually loved to wear.
This all gunmetal Nixon, though. It's stunning.

Mobile gaming might be where the money is, but handheld gaming seems to be making a comeback.
The Analogue Pocket looks great, and would make a great replacement for anyone with an ageing GameBoy system (that's me).

- Works with GameBoy, GameBoy Color & GameBoy Advanced games
- Also works with Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, Atari and more via adapters
- USB C

I updated to iOS 13 last night and was happy to see the Look Around announced when you first open the Apple Maps app. The feature is only available in San Francisco, Las Vegas and Honolulu and it works really well.
This video retraces the steps we took 10 years ago when we visited Hawaii and would walk from our hotel towards Waikiki beach. It's pretty smooth and nicer experience than Google Maps but it would be really nice if you could hide all the clutter.
It also looks like there's more detail in Honolulu where the perspective of cars, people and objects shifts slightly as you look around at a particular spot but if you do the same on The Strip in Vegas, it feels flatter and much more like the Streetview experience we're used to.
I've seen the Apple Maps cars in 4 locations in London over the past 6-8 weeks so I'm really looking forward to seeing the feature roll out to more cities and countries.
