Jony Ive to form independent design company with Apple as client

Jony Ive has collaborated on a number of products with Marc Newson before, so not a surprise that they've decided to embark on a joint venture. The collection that stands out most in my mind was their Product (RED) auction where they sold a one of pair of rose gold AirPods.

The title really should have been 'Jony Ive is to leave Apple', John Gruber has a good take on it all, as usual.

Tesla Model 3 vs Merc-AMG, BMW M3 & Alfa Giulia QV drag race

The thing that struck me most watching this on Top Gear this past weekend was how ordinary the Model 3 looks. It's a serious machine and does not appear anywhere near as attractive at the other three in the lineup. Performance may be very good by standard but Tesla are in need of a tuning arm.

Bad News

An interesting game that shows you how social networks are manipulated but more importantly, it's a lesson in being able to spot when you might be being manipulated.

Study of thousands of players shows a simple online game works like a “vaccine”, increasing skepticism of fake news by giving people a “weak dose” of the methods behind disinformation.

Apple Pay launches in 13 additional European Countries

It feels like Apple Pay has been here in the UK for a long time now, pretty close to it's original launch that it surprises me when it's still being launched in other European Countries. Hard to believe that it's only rolled out across Germany, Iceland and The Netherlands in the past 6-7 months.

The human cost of the immigration crisis

This is so sad. And not the first and unlikely to be the last time we see photos like this.

What happened: Ramírez, frustrated because the family from El Salvador was unable to present themselves to U.S. authorities and request asylum, swam across the river on Sunday with his daughter, Valeria.
  • He set her on the U.S. bank of the river in Brownsville, Texas, and started back for his wife in Matamoros, Mexico.
  • But seeing him move away, the girl threw herself into the waters. Martínez returned and was able to grab Valeria, but the current swept them both away.
