14 hidden Apple TV features everyone should use

I didn't figure out you could use the Apple TV remote to control the TV's volume until almost a year after we first got one. It's a great feature, but with kids, it's just a shame the remote feels too fragile to use when they're around.

Quite a few of the features I need to try out myself, but I think the biggest barrier to discovering them naturally has been the remotes we use. We have an all-in-one remote and I use the iPhone app from time to time which, despite 3D touch, doesn't match the physical remote feature for feature.

Remain Voter

Interesting website that encourages tactical voting to ensure the best way to keep pro-Brexit parties out of Europe.

No matter how you voted in the referendum 3 years ago, at no point has someone like Nigel Farage been the right choice to be the spokesperson for the UK.

Google uses Gmail to track a history of things you buy — and it's hard to delete

This is quite an odd thing for Google to do if they are not monetizing this information.

Two more things that are odd:

  1. My purchase history only goes as far back as late 2014 (article cites 2012)
  2. This only seems to work for Gmail accounts, not G Suite (business email hosted by Gmail)

Perhaps the last one makes sense and could be part of their ToS but sounds like a feature a business use could make really good use of, despite how shady it seems.

Arrested Westeros

Arrested Westeros brings Game of Thrones screen caps together with Arrested Development captions. I came across the blog long before I had even seen Game Of Thrones and found it funny then, but with a bit more context it's even funner.

As it's updated after each show and with the finale tonight, beware of spoilers!
