7 Things This Week [#61]

A weekly list of things I found interesting, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1️⃣ Although she couldn’t show a lot, this behind-the-scenes of the Apple Fitness+ studio that iJustine did was pretty cool. It looks just as clean and impressive as I expected. [Link - iJustine // youtube.com]

2️⃣ Here’s a super interesting video about Coltrane’s Giant Steps. This way of thinking about musical keys as different languages is pretty apt and explains why I was so bad at mastering them. [Link - Vox // youtube.com]

3️⃣ Some truly impressive shortcuts here from participants in the latest MacStories event. I’d say Automation April was a resounding success. I can’t wait for next year! [Link - John Voorhees // macstories.net]

4️⃣ Some people might find these pop-up booths for Apple TV+ shows corny, but I think they’re pretty neat! Definitely a little treat for fans of the shows, and being located in LA doesn’t hurt. [Link - Filipe Espósito // 9to5mac.com]

5️⃣ For such an important electric vehicle, I’m glad to see the overwhelmingly positive reception for the Ford F-150 Lightning. [Link - Andrew J. Hawkins // theverge.com]

6️⃣ In addition to all of that, Sgr A is in our own galaxy, which makes it harder to see from Earth. Observing this black hole means peering through the galactic plane of the Milky Way — and all of the gaseous material in between us and the black hole. That provides a lot of interference that the scientists had to work around.” Science is so cool! [Link - Loren Grush // theverge.com]

7️⃣ I’m glad Tony Fadell has stepped back into the spotlight with the release of his book. He’s wicked smart and so straightforward in his communication. This interview of him by Nilay Patel on Decoder is great. One of the best episodes yet. [Link - Nilay Patel & Tony Fadell // overcast.fm]
