7 Things This Week [#122]

A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays (or occasionally on Mondays). Sometimes themed, often not.


1️⃣ An impressive demo of Google’s Gemini AI model. (Note that apparently this is pretty heavily sped up and edited, so watch with a grain of salt.) [🔗 Google // youtube.com]

2️⃣ Perhaps longer and more dramatic than strictly necessary, this is still an enjoyable read with good intentions about retuning to the principles of a more open and personal web. [🔗 Kev Quirk // thewebisfucked.com]

3️⃣ Taylor Swift is an absolute phenom. This article on her Person of the Year award is well-worth the read through her journey. (Oh, and the portraits are masterful too.) [🔗 Sam Lansky // time.com]

4️⃣ BasicAppleGuy released a do-it-yourself tier list for all the products that Apple released in 2023. I’m thinking about doing one myself, and would love to see how others rank everything up. [🔗 BasicAppleGuy // basicappleguy.com]

5️⃣ The MacStories Selects Awards has me revisiting some of the top-tier apps they’ve recognized this year. Excellent writing and choices. [🔗 MacStories Team // macstories.net]

6️⃣ As heard on ATP, this app helps you to digital save your kid’s art. It looks really slick, does everything on-device, and lets you tag it by kid, age, etc. [🔗 KidArt // apps.apple.com]

7️⃣ Scroll to the bottom of this site, and then follow the cat for an internet treat. [🔗 Martin Schotten // fragmentscenario.com] (Via Sven, via Matt)
