Cold Cure from Keenan & Kel

The episode of Kennan & Kel that inspired this must be well over 20 years old. It's one of those shows I was so excited to watch once we finally got cable.

Everything that was great about 90s Nickelodeon in one glass.

UK contactless spending limit to increase from £30 to £45 beginning next month

For the trips we do make out to the shops at the moment, being able to use contactless methods of payments is a no brainer. Something John Gruber and Jason Snell covered on The Talk Show last week.

#GoTouchless

@mahemoff tweeted in reply about touches UIs and also about placebo buttons. I'd be surprised if these pedestrian crossings weren't already automated in Sydney.

P.E with Joe

This was a lot of fun, and a great way to kick of home schooling with the kids. I was a spectator today, but I'll be joining in from tomorrow.

He's been all over social media for ages, but last year was the first time I really heard anything that he had to say when he was on the Dear Lovejoy podcast.

Study claims using CarPlay while driving is more dangerous than texting

I don't doubt the results of this study, despite the small sample size. CarPlay looks really good, but Siri is too hit and miss for it to work seamlessly. Unless you trust Siri completely, you'll not only be glancing to check it heard you correctly but you have to pay attention to make sure it understood you too.

CarPlay is one aspect of this, but what's the market share in terms of cars that have access to CarPlay? Single figure percentages I would have thought. Improving Do Not Disturb mode while driving would be really useful. One tap execution of common tasks.

It's also weird that Siri can't work offline for simple on-device tasks like playing podcasts or music.
