"Late Bloomer" Trailer

About 5 years ago, Indian-Canadian YouTuber JusReign disappeared from the internet. Turns out he was off creating something new, which I saw on an Instagram story that he had hoped to deliver in 2019.

Sporadically I'd see him pop up on various other channels as a non-speaking character in a short skit or as a background character and then a couple of weeks ago it was announced his show was coming to Crave in Canada called Late Bloomer.

From the initial teasers on Instagram it didn't look like a comedy at all but this trailer makes it look a lot more fun and I hope there's a way to watch it here in the UK.

Digg and the Power Laws of Silicon Valley

I knew of Digg and used it a little around the mid-2000s, I don't miss it and probably hadn't visited for at least 5 years. It is a piece of history though and I do miss the whole Diggnation show that was built around the site.

I've thought about doing something similar for notable items here in the past...

Band Designed for Black Apple Watch Ultra Surfaces Online

I know that my preference is personal to me. I owned a space gray Apple Watch but had a little bit of envy when I saw the silver version in person. If I was buying a 'regular' Apple Watch now, I'd go for a brighter bezel to set it against the black screen.

I love the natural Titanium finish of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 I have. A darker version would look great, but I feel like premium watches come with silver bezels and doubt I'd feel the same envy.

Apple + Porsche CarPlay analysis and redesign

While I don't hate what Apple and Porsche have come up with with the latter's integration of CarPlay, John LePore's redesign is undoubtedly better.

First Vehicles With Next-Generation Apple CarPlay Announced Ahead of 2024 Launch

The next generation of CarPlay was announced over a year ago, and while I think it does look great, I thought it would be more likely to serve as some inspiration for car manufacturers... I just didn't see how any car manufacturer would buy into it.

Looks like I was wrong and it will be in cars as early as next year. If you can afford one of them.

I am actually a big fan of Porsche's cars. I think externally, it would be hard to pick a bad looking car they've ever made. Maybe they don't all stand the test of time, but overall I would say they deliver hit after hit after hit. When car shopping, I did briefly look at Porsche as an option. Unrealistic, but no harm in window shopping until I looked inside. The instrument clusters for modern Porsches are not at the level they should be. Trying to marry their analogue heritage with a digital future hasn't worked well in my opinion.

CarPlay, weirdly, appears to be trying to do the same but maybe a tiny bit more successfully than Porsche have done. On the previews, Aston Martin's implementation looks more in keeping with their brand than their own digital instrument clusters.
