7 Things This Week [#106]

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

1️⃣ Has your computer been lacking in whimsy? Ever lose track of your mouse on that giant screen? MouseosaurusRex will fulfill both needs. [🔗 Tyler // tyler.io]

2️⃣ A video by 9to5Mac showcasing how a man with a degenerative muscle condition uses his Apple technology to retain his independence was instrumental in getting that tech cost covered as health care. [🔗 Ben Lovejoy // 9to5mac.com]

3️⃣ Is delayed gratification always the best? A few years ago, I would responded with an enthusiastic, Yes!” But now, as time moves ever faster and years feel ever shorter, I tend to agree more with Sreekar, here. [🔗 Sreekar // sreekarscribbles.com]

4️⃣ This article from over 20 years ago was eye-opening about how vastly different dental diagnoses can be. [🔗 William Ecenbarger // rd.com] (Via Jason Becker)

5️⃣ If you’re not a regular Macalope reader, what even are you doing? That whole non-folding iPhones will be worthless” article really was excessive, wasn’t it? [🔗 The Macalope // macworld.com]

6️⃣ In what I hope will be a poetic finale of my posts about Twitter/X, I give you a Basic Apple Guy’s resurrection of the Fail Wail in the form of an icon that you could use to replace that uninspired X icon on your home screen, if you want. [🔗 BasicAppleGuy // basicappleguy.com]

7️⃣ A few thoughts that popped into my mind while watching this video of pencils being manufactured: (1) I wonder how many pounds of sawdust is produced from this factory per day/month/year. (2) With so many moving parts, its miraculous that the factory isn’t always on pause for one repair or another. (3) The little flipper flappers are my favorite. (4) Process X is definitely making it into my YouTube subscriptions. [▶️ Process X // youtube.com] (Via Jason Kotkee]
