Make Us Dream trailer

I thought this was going to cover Liverpool's 2005 Champions League victory but it's a look at Steven Gerrard and what made him.

Born on the 30th May 1980 in Whiston, Merseyside, Steven Gerrard joined the Liverpool FC Academy at age 8. He left 26 years later, having won two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Cup, one FA Community Shield, one UEFA Super Cup and, in what is widely regarded as one of the most thrilling matches of all-time, one UEFA Champions League. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year a record eight times.

MAKE US DREAM takes a close-up look at the man behind the legend - taking in the highs of Istanbul, the inner conflict of staying loyal to his boyhood club and the turmoil of coming agonisingly close to the trophy that has always eluded him: The Premier League Trophy.

As a fan of Liverpool, I'll be watching this when it becomes available on Prime Video for sure.

Kenny is another very good documentary for Liverpool fans, looking at what former player and manager Kenny Dalglish meant to Liverpool and what Liverpool meant to Kenny Dalglish.

The stylish & colorful computing machines of yesteryear

These photos remind me of Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs where he described the length to which Steve went to paint machines in factories.

While they may sit out of sight, there's no need to make them look ugly. While not as colourful, here's what an array of Mac minis looks like:

Apple's new maps

Justin O'Beirne has covered the difference between Apple Maps and Google Maps more than once now and it's always an interesting read. And he asks the right question given the information to hand:

So is Apple making the right map?

Google Maps is fantastic. Apple Maps, in my experience, is not. At least not in its purpose. It's an attractive app but the substance is missing. I'm tempted to swap Apple Maps back in to my home screen to see how things are with it now, but when it comes to commuting or just getting from A to B, there's not enough time to play with if things go wrong.

Once you've read this and the other article from Justin, go back and read the rest, they really are great analytic pieces on the state of Apple Maps.
