7 Things This Week [#128]

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


1️⃣ The Bearded Teacher made an excellent video showing off the Apple Shortcuts app. He took requests for shortcuts folks wanted made, and then walked through step-by-step how to make each one. There were some great ideas here, and I immediately set up an automation to silence unknown callers from 7pm-7am. [▶️ Stephen Robles // youtube.com]

2️⃣ Devon Dundee made an incredible shortcut that talks directly to the Trakt and The Movie Database APIs to log things you watched in your Journaling app of choice. [🔗 @devondundee // mastodon.social]

3️⃣ The unstoppable Robb Knight made a Humonize! site for listeners of Connected who don’t want to give up the humming of the Rickies. If that doesn’t make any sense to you, I can’t blame you. [🔗 Robb Knight // hum.rknight.me]

4️⃣ This new electric stovetop has a battery, works off a standard plug, can cook a meal in a power outage, and looks super sleek! [🔗 Emily Pontecorvo // heatmap.news] (Via Jason Kottke)

5️⃣ Did you know there’s a QuickLook app for Windows (press the spacebar to preview files, like on macOS)? Me neither! But I guess there is! [🔗 QuickLook // apps.microsoft.com] (Via @techalter)

6️⃣ Feedle is an RSS search engine where every search is an RSS feed. Use it to discover blogs and podcasts, or keep up with a topic over time. [🔗 feedle.world] (Via Lou Plummer)

7️⃣ This may look hype-y, and it kind of is, but it’s also a fair and compelling look back at the Steve Jobs to Tim Cook transition at Apple, and beyond. [▶️ fpt. // youtube.com]


52 Albums Project

Lukas Graham by Lukas Graham (2015) — #3/52

I like that he’s got a distinctive voice that cuts through the noise. I like that each song has a compelling story to tell. But most of all, I love how fun this album is. I’m sure there will be more Lukas Graham shared here, but his debut album is the place to start!

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