The Drop

  • Bose’s Ultra Open Earbuds. For some factor, over the in 2015 approximately, practically all in-ear earphones unexpectedly leave my ears aching and scratchy. I’m extremely curious to attempt these– although at $299 they’re too costly for my tastes, the clip-on design looks like it might work.
  • Publication. The Verge‘s Parker Ortolani turned me onto this: a brand-new (Apple-only) news- and RSS-reading app with a great deal of AI functions for summarization and things, however likewise simply an actually beautiful UI for checking out news feeds. You can include premade lists, dump in any website or feed, even conserve things to check out later on.
  • The Space Race An actually cool documentary about early Black astronauts, with lots of archival video and an actually wild Cold War subplot. Similar to all excellent area docs, ensure you enjoy this one on the most significant screen you can discover.
  • Mark Zuckerberg’s Vision Pro evaluation. The evaluation itself is, like, fine– I believe Zuck is best about a great deal of the important things individuals in fact desire headsets for, and about the price-to-quality balance being a challenging one. Shooting an evaluation of a rival’s item, with your own item, in such a casual method, is simply interesting to me.
  • The ONE thing keeping this renowned vintage laptop computer from working … Just recently, for factors I wish to sooner or later have the ability to inform you about, I’ve been deep down the bunny hole of remarkable old gizmos.
