7 Things This Week, 2022-04-11
A weekly list of things I found interesting, posted on Sundays.1 Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ The Playdate is soon to be in the hands of its first customers, and some media folks got a first look at the innovative handheld console. Panic, the company behind the little device, put together a thread of some of the first looks. Man does it look fun! [Link - @playdate // twitter.com]
2️⃣ The Find My network is making reselling AirPods tricky when the original customer doesn’t remove them from their iCloud account first. [Link - Caroline Haskins // businessinsider.com]
3️⃣ I love seeing outdoor spaces designed with accessibility in mind. The care that goes into creating and servicing a park where anyone — in this case even someone who uses a motorized wheelchair — can have a solo backcountry expertise, warms my heart.

4️⃣ The Verge scored an interview with a production designer for the show Severance. It’s a fascinating look into the thought behind the weird office the “Innies” live in. [Link - Andrew Webster // theverge.com]
5️⃣ Severance captured my interest like nothing else on television has for some time. It’s utterly fantastic, and so creepy. This interview with director Ben Stiller provides neat insight into the casting and character development. I’ll be thinking about this show for the next year until season two comes out! [Link - Alan Sepinwall // rollingstone.com]
6️⃣ I got a good chuckle out of this intro mashup of The Office and Severance. [Link - Magoob Toys // youtube.com]
7️⃣ And because I guess I’m on a Severance tear, this tweet thread is a neat look at how they pull off the captivating elevator transition with some film magic. [Link - @vashikoo // twitter.com]

Gah! I was out of town this weekend and lost track of the days. Sorry about this one coming out late!↩︎
