Rivian - Electric Adventure Vehicle

I'd linked to Rivian before, a Chicago based EV company that are aiming to get their SUV to customers in 2020 for less than $70,000.

Fully Charged's overview was very interesting. The lighting display looked gimmicky but it's not only distinctive, but functional too.

That torch too, removable from the door, but the battery can contribute to the car's overall power too. Nice touch.

Best of HomeKit at CES 2019

I intended to cover this topic myself, but Rene Ritchie's done a great job so I'll just put this here instead. Sadly, nearly all power outlet solutions are geared towards the North American market, there are very few plugs for the UK and even the 2-gang versions require a hub which takes them from affordable to expensive very quickly.

Derby della Capitale: Lazio vs Roma

While the video itself feels like a reading of a Wikipedia page, I actually found out a few things about my favourite Italian club, Roma.

The rivalry is fierce. I saw Roma vs Juventus in Rome back in 2009 and it wasn't the type of atmosphere I'm used to watching Premier League football. The fans were aggressive and we left after 60 minutes. I'd highly recommend going to see a Serie A game, just not sure I'd be able to cope with the stress of watching a true derby in person.
