Apple made a guide for all the apps you can get if you don't want to use its own

Quite a nice website from Apple in response to Spotify and others that have questioned the size of the slice that Apple take from purchases made through the App Store.

I still use lots of the default apps on my iPhone and yet there's no shortage of competing apps trying to get their cut of your screen time. Is 30% fair? I'm not sure but I don't think anyone can truly claim it's stifled competition. With Spotify competing directly with one of Apple's core services, you can understand why they don't want to give their competitor a cut.

Buckwheat husk pillow

I first heard about these types of pillows on an episode of The Talk Show and with the summer rolling around last year, decided to get a couple to help us sleep more comfortably in the heat. I was sceptical but they really work. Great at keeping a comfortable temperature and the shape you want.

The only downside is that they can be a little noisy, but its something you get used to and now I find regular pillows way too soft.

Looks like it's been made specifically for the American market, but this is exactly the type of thing we need to deal with one of our rooms that have Philips Hue bulbs.

Price: $40

Being black in Nazi Germany

I heard about this movie through the Kermode and Mayo podcast, where Amma Asante was a guest discussing the film Where Hands Touch. Yet another side to the War you're unlikely to have any idea about.
