Apple shipped us a 79-pound iPhone repair kit to fix a 1.1-ounce battery

quote [ The more I think about it, the more I realize Apple?s Self-Service Repair program is the perfect way to make it look like the company supports right-to-repair policies without actually encouraging them at all. ]

Maan what a nutty corporate joke.

My Grandma is Not a Cyborg

quote [ While trying to reach a spice jar on the counter, she sometimes says: ?I wish the counter was lower.? She was not allowed to interfere with the carpenter who designed and built it. Architects? Data is not part of her vocabulary; she has no idea who Neufert is. She notices that the new phones are too big, but she has no option but to buy the smallest design available: the older non-smart phones. ]

Expanding the thoughts of this older post with some interesting examples, including hijab modifications.

It exists ? and is hundreds of years old. The hot water bottle could save a great deal of energy and money without sacrificing thermal comfort. ]

Interesting article about heating infrastructure with several bottle exhibits ? thumb is a model from 1957.

This is a review via the justuseemail.com blog which is less bullshitty than the page around the actual source. I wish more people would bother with these.

Differentiating online variations of the Commonplace Book: Digital Gardens, Wikis, Zettlekasten, Waste Books, Florilegia, and Second Brains

quote [ As was highlighted (pun intended) at the recent I Annotate 2021 conference, the note taking space seems to have been coming to a new boil. With the expansion of the ideas of keeping a zettelkasten or a digital garden, these versions of notebooks seem to be a significant part of this new note taking craze. ]

One overwhelming blob of links and notes for you to sift through.
