Innocence lost: what did you do before the internet?

Leah McLaren in The Guardian: This is what I find so amazing. That my father – like most other professionals of his generation and generations before him – was able to earn a salary and support our family with little more than a phone and a stack of papers. Just thinking of his desk, the […]

Apple Readies Camera-Focused Pro iPhones, New iPads, Larger MacBook Pro

Mark Gurman, nu bij Bloomberg, is de man die je moet kennen voor de beste lekken uit Cupertino. Niet echt veel wereldschokkends dat eraan komt, maar dit vind ik zelf wel echt extreem vet: The high-end handsets will have significantly upgraded video recording capabilities, getting them closer to professional video cameras.

The rise and fall of French cuisine

Wendell Steavenson in The Guardian: I remember having an argument with my French boyfriend because I suggested marinating the chicken for dinner in yoghurt and cumin.
