A Tour Of Robert Llewellyn's Ultra-Efficient Eco Home

Solar panels haven't made it onto our street yet, majority of the properties just face the wrong way but it's something that crosses my mind from time to time and would be great if we could figure out a way to make economically viable. Add in battery storage too and we'd be onto a winner.

Top Lightning-based Apple products that must switch to USB-C by 2025 for EU sale

The idea itself, to move everything to USB-C, is not a bad one. But we only have two options now, we don't have the mayhem of the period that proceeded Lightning and USB-C. Every manufacturer had their own cable, and even between devices there were incompatibilities.

Everything is either USB-C or Lightning. Nothing in between, no variations, just two formats. The change to USB-C is inevitable for the iPhone, so I'm not sure the legislation is really necessary.

2022 marks 10 years since Lightning's introduction and it was hailed, by Apple, as the port for the next decade. Well a decade passed and I had hoped the iPhone 14 would go the USB-C route.

Update

Good Twitter thread from Bryan Jones on the whole situation. Maybe it won't be so bad, but mandating the inevitable is a bit weird. If anything, this would have made way more sense before.

I've been lucky enough to see the Nothern Lights, but nothing like this before.

I wish I had both the skill and the patience to do something like this.
