7 Things This Week, 2022-02-27
A weekly list of things I found interesting, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ Stephen Hackett saw that there’s now a cute version of Wordle done in the style of classic Windows. [Link - Stephen Hackett // 512pixels.net]
2️⃣ This watchOS face concept makes so much sense. I’d love to see a complication that takes the place of analog hour ticks as this does. [Link - @FonsMans // twitter.com]
3️⃣ Talk about a portable Mac! It sounds like Apple could be working on a Mac that fits all inside a keyboard. Pair this sort of keyboard with an AR visor, and you’ve got a tactile computer with a killer display anywhere you go! [Link - Tim Hardwick // macrumors.com]
4️⃣ Jason and others are starting to change my mind about Apple offering app side-loading on iOS. I’m leaning toward that they should. [Link - Jason Snell // macworld.com]
5️⃣ I don’t know enough about foreign politics to weigh in definitively about the Ukraine invasion. Still, the more I see about President Zelenskyy, the more I feel that he’s the right person to lead his people through this crisis. [Link - @BenjaminRamm // twitter.com]
6️⃣ I’m getting a backpacking bug, and Miranda’s videos are helping me with a fix while there are 12+ inches of snow on the ground. This one has a bunch of easy meal suggestions, and, honestly, they’ve got my mouth watering. [Link - Miranda in the Wild // youtube.com]
7️⃣ I do a lot less in Excel these days since leaving my program executive job with the Boy Scouts. But that didn’t stop me from ogling at this video which shows super useful tips to get more out of Excel and faster! Joel’s presentation style was engaging and funny, and it seemed that the rudeness was part of the schtick. It’s long, but put it on 1.5x and then slow down for the parts you can use. And then bookmark it for later when you forget it all! [Link - Joel Spolsky // youtube.com]
