The human cost of the immigration crisis

This is so sad. And not the first and unlikely to be the last time we see photos like this.

What happened: Ramírez, frustrated because the family from El Salvador was unable to present themselves to U.S. authorities and request asylum, swam across the river on Sunday with his daughter, Valeria.
  • He set her on the U.S. bank of the river in Brownsville, Texas, and started back for his wife in Matamoros, Mexico.
  • But seeing him move away, the girl threw herself into the waters. Martínez returned and was able to grab Valeria, but the current swept them both away.

Polestar 1: First Drive

It feels like ages since I covered the Polestar 1. I'm really excited by the brand and I think the Polestar 2 looks better than the Tesla Model 3.

Inside the traumatic life of a Facebook moderator

It's sad enough that the content is available, but people have to sit there moderating it but in some cases that's in vein.

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B

A very nice update to the wonderful Raspberry Pi. I've been using their $5 version, the Pi Zero for a few years now and love how it's enabled simple automation at home. At one point it was even running as a web server and powering a rudimentary smart display but that requires a lot of time to get back to a point where it's usable. Back to the 4:

You now get 1x USB C, 2 xUSB 3, Gigabit ethernet and choice of RAM, either 1, 2 or 4GB. Oh and alongside a more powerful processor, you get two micro HDMI ports that both support 4K.

Price: £35+

Very happy to hear that support for HomeKit Secure Video will be coming to the Logitech Circle 2 camera, which is the model we opted for and were looking to get more of.
