Everything new in iOS 12.2

The new layout for the remote app for the Apple TV was enough to draw me in. Accessed through Control Centre with a swipe up, it now takes up the whole screen. Although, I'm not sure how you exit. I guess with the home button or gesture.

The update to the Apple Pay interface is nice as it will show past transactions but the one I wasn't expecting is the ability to start a search then click an arrow to add the term but to allow you to keep typing. This makes searching in Safari much better. I think Chrome did this already and eBay too.

Gordon Ramsay on Hot Ones (S8 E1)

Season 8 kicks off with Gordon Ramsay. One of the longest episodes at 30 minutes, it's a good one. Lots of profanity, as expected.

Corporations are physically fleeing global chaos

Sony are moving from London to Amsterdam and now Dyson are moving to Singapore. Dyson feels the most bizarre because their owner was a staunch 'leaver' citing the benefit for businesses. 2018 bought a deal between the EU and Singapore which is where Dyson announced they'd be setting up for their electric car adventure. Turns out that was just the start. It's an absolute shit show at the moment and yet the incompetent are left in charge while they attempt to deliver the impossible.

New identify for National Museum of Iceland

Iceland is in my top 5 of places visited and we just happened to stay in a hotel directly behind the museum when we visited back in 2012. Can't say I remember the identify at all but I really like the new identity.

In all honesty, it was the settler exhibition near the City Hall left more of an impression.
