UK to use Apple-Google API in NHS contact tracing app

I was watching the daily update at the time and as usual with the current UK government, it was framed in a way in which they were taking credit for the initiative. The technology will soon be baked into the OS on our phones and from the specs, the APIs Apple and Google are putting together look very promising.

It's great news, but it wasn't communicated correctly. What if your phone cannot be updated to run the latest version when these changes are available? Android especially, which has vendor and network versions that are either slow to be updated or not updated at all.

Stop motion lego

Over the weekend, my daughter and I put together a couple of stop motion animation, it was a lot of fun and another thing you can easily do with your kids. I had a mini tripod lying around and a very basic version of one of these tripod adapters to hold the phone steady.
