7 Things This Week, 2022-05-01
A weekly list of things I found interesting, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ Whoa. [Link - @kevinbparry // twitter.com]
2️⃣ A clever solution for a problem. It’s silly that there isn’t a preference for disabling Universal Links per app or in general. [Link - Jeff Johnson // lapcatsoftware.com]
3️⃣ You can hear Matt Herbst talk with Mark Gurman about the possibility of unions at Apple Retail. It’s kinda surreal that after two decades of Apple employees being relatively absent from the public discussion, Matt, who trained me at the Apple Store, has broken that barrier.

4️⃣ An incredibly savvy marketing campaign for refurbished devices using AirDrop at Apple Stores. [Link - Sami Fathi // macrumors.com]
5️⃣ I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this book. [Link - José Adorno // 9to5mac.com]
6️⃣ I’ve been having a ton of fun trying Knotwords, a new crossword-like word game. [Link - John Voorhees // macstories.net]
7️⃣ I’ve listened in on a few Twitter Spaces, and I guess I like them for small conversations. I actually didn’t mind Fleets either. But I’m not sold on Twitter Communities. I just can’t get over the core principle that tweets are meant to be for anyone to see. [Link - Greg Morris // gregmorris.co.uk]
