7 Things This Week, 2023-01-01
A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
Happy New Year, folks! I hope you achieve something that you’re proud of in 2023. 🎉
1️⃣ Universal Control has been one of my favorite additions to the Apple ecosystem in the past few years. I love that it makes using two completely different operating systems so seamless. Jason Snell points out some other fantastic use cases for Universal Control in this article. [🔗 Jason Snell // macworld.com]
2️⃣ I had no idea that user stylesheets were a thing, but of course, they were a thing. Their need is largely supplanted by read-it-later apps, RSS, and ad blockers, but I’m still intrigued. [🔗 Nick Heer // pxlnv.com]
3️⃣ 👏 Bring back the Mini! 👏 Bring back the Mini! 👏 [🔗 Sami Fathi // macrumors.com]
4️⃣ I just discovered the OfferUp service this week. It’s kind of like eBay and kind of like Facebook Marketplace, but with a bunch of the friction removed. It’s geared toward selling your items locally, but they’ll help you ship stuff, too. Worth a look if you’re doing some new year clearing out. Here’s my sales page. [🔗 offerup.com]
5️⃣ An absolute banger from P!nk that my wife and I have had on repeat. It was the best dancing song for New Year’s Eve. 😉 [🔗 P!nk // song.link]
6️⃣ Did you know that there’s a Season 2 and 3 of the classic Neature Walk videos from back in the day? Me neither! But they’re pretty neat! [🔗 vicscrappyvideos // youtube.com]
7️⃣ An app just for joy: Pixel Pals. It works best with an iPhone with the Dynamic Island, but still super cute on any phone. You get little animated animal friends that can hang out on your home screen and lock screen. 😊 [🔗 Christian Selig // apps.apple.com]
