7 Things This Week [#127]

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


1️⃣ MrMobile (and the rest of the team at Clicks) made a physical keyboard case for the iPhone and it looks… well, it actually looks quite cool! There’s no version for my beloved Mini, and I doubt I’d enjoy having a longer, heavier phone, but I can absolutely see the benefit to smartphone power typists and content creators. The whole launch video is excellent. 🔗 clicks.tech]

2️⃣ I’m going to go ahead and say there’s a lot of AI automation that goes unreviewed before items are put on sale on Amazon. 🤦‍♂️ [🔗 Elizabeth Lopatto // theverge.com]

3️⃣ With a domain name like buttsdotlol.tumblr.com, are you really expecting anything else? 🤣 [🔗 buttsdotlol.tumblr.com] (Thanks Robb)

4️⃣ I’ve been wondering how many immersive environments will come with the Vision Pro, and how many separate apps you’d have to download if you wanted more of them. Looks like with Flowriter, you could generate an effectively infinite number of them. [🔗 flowriter.ink]

5️⃣ This Instagram redesign concept video is comprehensive while being entertaining, and I’d be hard-pressed to find one of its suggestions that I don’t agree with. [🔗 Juxtopposed // youtube.com]

6️⃣ There’s a page to see the most popular pages on Wikipedia per specified timeframe. I wasn’t surprised by 2023’s top page, but there were others on that list that I wouldn’t have guessed. [🔗 pageviews.wmcloud.org]

7️⃣ You think you’ve seen Tiny Desk performances, but you haven’t seen this.” [🔗 NPR Music // youtube.com] (Via Matt Mullenweg)


52 Albums Project

Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance (2006) — #2/52

This album got me through most of middle school — it was perhaps the first edgy” music I started listening to. Certainly, it helped me process my young teenage angst. Still, I turn to it when I need to release some inner turmoil.

Follow along on the 52 Albums Project page where I’m making some playlists for you.
