Google to 'dramatically' improve Chrome impact on Mac battery life

Over a year ago now, I switched to Safari as my default browser for two reasons:

  1. Increased battery life from regular browsing
  2. Privacy/security

A third reason would have been for it's picture-in-picture functionality but I still haven't updated the OS on mine... something I really need to do at some point.

Sadly, the developer tools are not that great on Safari. No shortcut for inspecting elements and it caches too aggressively so you sometimes feel like you're going mad when you don't see your changes coming through.

Alicia Keys Tiny Desk Concert

Another great Tiny Desk Concert, this time from the great Alicia Keys.

They've been cranking out a lot of home concerts during lockdown and re-uploading from their archive, but this was filmed just before COVID-19 sent us all in to lockdown.

Falling is a song that came out when I was still in education, I got goosebumps hearing it again after such a long time.

Nike x Undefeated vintage ad puzzles

Missed the deadline unfortunately, but these would have been a great set of puzzles to own.

Lego Crazy Action Contraptions

We binged through both season of the UK's version of Lego Masters and since then I've been on the lookout for some Technic pieces so we can build more interesting things at home. Without buying a ready made set or splashing out on small collections it's a pain to find what we wanted... and then I came across this book by Klutz that has instructions for stuff you can build and it comes with all the pieces you need.

I highly recommend it if you want to get started with more complicated Lego builds.

Update

Turns out I'd actually linked to this before, during week 140.

Price: £10.60
