Google Apps for iOS to switch to UIKit after decade of Material Design

I think this is ultimately going to be really good for everyone, we just have to deal with the transition period. Always feels like Google really take their time with UI stuff but maybe some of it was just down to Material Design getting in the way?

This concept car debuted in 1999 and steering wheel aside, it holds remarkably well.

iOS 15 features, tips and tricks you probably don't know

I certainly learnt quite a bit looking through this but this is the one thing I genuinely didn't know you could do:

  1. Edit the Safari start page
    • Enable and re-order the features on the page
    • Choose a default background
    • I also realised that the iCloud Tabs feature has an icon that lets you switch between devices (I thought it wasn't working)

Love this lower cost version of a LEGO Tumbler. Would fit in nicely with all of the other LEGO things we've collected over the past few years.

Price: £34.99

Create amazing wallpapers using iPhone 13 Pro's Macro feature

Plenty of inspiration in this video to give you ideas on different materials and lighting you can use to create textures that are perfect for abstract macro photography. Some of the images are really nice and a little editing goes a long way taking them from initial capture to becoming wallpaper ready.

Everrati Electric Porsche 911

Stunning, I love how people are taking these old machines and turning them into EVs for the future.

I, optimistically, looked around at what Porsche have to offer when looking for our next car and for the money you pay their interiors are pretty awful. They certainly don't stand up to the test of time so I'd be interested to know how Everrati tackle that aspect. Hard to get a look inside, but there's at least one photo that seems to show the legacy CarPlay stereo Porsche offer for their older cars.

The Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda would actually be my pick.

iPhone 13 Pro camera review: Tanzania

Austin Mann's reviews of the latest iPhone are always very good from a photography perspective. Some great photos to look at and a couple of videos too.

The best bit of this article is actually around Focus Mode. I've seen it and poked around but didn't realise you could us an app to invoke a specific Focus Mode while you're using it. Austin Mann's use case was for using the Camera app and I've set up the same too. In theory, my phone won't vibrate or make a notification sound while I'm taking a video or photo.
