Pandemic changes we might want to keep

I've worked with remote team mates for the past 8 years and it's never really been a problem. Of course, it's great to meet up and socialise in person but the time you get back from not having to commute is huge.

I much prefer working in the office but I have the luxury of a short commute. If I was still trapping across London I'm sure I'd feel differently about that.

Winamp Skin Museum

What a blast from the past, I spent many hours in my youth creating some pretty average WinAmp themes. I'm sure I created more than two, but that's all I could find in the archive. One for Liverpool and another for Roma.

Siri watch face data sources

I really like the Siri watch face for the Apple Watch, but it drains battery faster than others and recently the data sources seem to be a bit odd. I knew there was a way to adjust it, but it's not exactly where I thought it would be. Bit of an odd place to put it, but at least I can tune it a bit more to my tastes now.

Volvo P1800 Cyan

Volvo's offshoot, Polestar, is making some great looking cars and you can see where they've got some of their inspiration from in Volvo's history.

"The Babysitter: Killer Queen" trailer

The first movie was more enjoyable than I expected while being absolutely ludicrous and this looks like more of the same.

LEGO x Ikea: Get ready for BYGGLEK collection in October!

These Lego storage boxes are very big and have some weird base where small pieces find their way and are very hard to recover. This solution from Lego and Ikea seem far more sensible and useful with the brick pattern integrated. Looks like they're stackable too so you can use them like giant bricks and then build on top of them.

Facebook says Apple's iOS 14 anti-tracking features will cut 50% of its Audience Network ad revenue

Fantastic news, it means these 'features' are working. It's about time this hole was plugged, our privacy has been a commodity for way too long now.

I'm not against ads at all, they should just be a seamless part of the experience and contextual at best.
