Demo of the rumoured new pill-shaped notch for the iPhone 14

If this is true, sounds like a Pro feature to me. Love the simplicity of this demo. if you have a Face ID iPhone, open this photo and turn your phone upside down. That's what the next generation of iPhone might look like.

Sony's Vision-S concept

Sony first talked about it's Vision-S concepts in 2020 and 18 months later they're looking to take it all more seriously.

What strikes me the most about this concept series of cars is the interior. I'm looking for a new car at the moment and most interiors are awful. There's no other way to put it. Sony really have something with theirs.

Although, I'm not a fan of exposed cup holders in the centre console. The best interiors have them hidden.

The Wayforward Machine

Via Nick Here, a project from the Internet Archive that shows what the future of the internet may have in store for us... although through this is a satirical take on it all, it's what the internet sometimes feels like today.

What happened when people in this upstate New York town started getting monthly $500 checks

These anecdotes are exactly what I'd expect to hear from a program like this:

Data aside, researchers also wanted to collect anecdotes about the concrete effects on people's lives. One recipient said the assistance had allowed them to move out of a crowded house, others to simply afford rent and pay off bills. A mother reported being able to afford a nicer car in which to drive her children to school, making her feel like she was taking better care of them. Some were able to enjoy “small luxuries,” like taking a first vacation in years, or making small changes in lifestyle: A dive bartender said they could now work at a restaurant, doing “safer, earlier, hour-style bartending.”

Every time I hear about Universal Basic Income, it just sounds like a no-brainer to me. Better to distribute a bit of money to everyone so they can actually improve their lives than letting a few hoard all the money and hope that it trickles down.

"Mo Amer: Mohammed In Texas" trailer

What a great special from Mo Amer. The clips I've seen did make me wonder how good a whole show would be but I didn't need to worry. From the intro to the outro, so many laughs to be had.
