Photos don't capture the moment

Something I've said to myself many times about many subjects and scenes for well over a decade.

“this picture doesnt do this sunrise justice”

I've had a camera phone in some shape of form for at least the last 15 years and while it's hard to believe some of the memories they can capture there are times when they just don't do it justice. Bigger cameras too.

Fjorden iPhone camera control

This looks like a fantastic product, but a little disappointing with the overall solution. The first time I saw it, it looked MagSafe compatible. As in it could clip directly onto an iPhone and maybe even pass on the charge, but it's kick-stand capability and positioning but that idea to bed.

In any case, it still looks like a really useful tool to help up your iPhone photography game.

Price: €119

An emoji for your thoughts

Since I first started using a Mac, I don't remember the last time I was envious of something on Windows. Emojis in particular were awful on Microsoft's OS, so flat and blocky. Oddly sized and because of them, I ended up amending Apple's emojis into JPEGs so that I could standardise the layout and appearance across different platforms.

These new emojis from Microsoft are just so fun, the team behind it all deserve a raise 👏.

No one likes ads. So let's do something about it.

Nice approach from Unsplash here and some good examples of traditional ads versus what we see on websites today.

Examples of ads that are often found on websites. They are generally busy and information dens

The examples above are all pretty dens with the information they want to convey. Cramming it all into such a small space is a far cry from the full-page print ads of the past.
