    ๐Ÿ”— The Internet Archive just put 565 Palm Pilot apps in your web browser

    Via the Verge you can reach out and touch a 1996 pocket computer with your 2022 pocket computer and it works like a charm. Itโ€™s a tiny interactive window into the pre-iPhone era, and what lived in the proto-App Store. I have a lot of nostalgia for the PDA era.

Initially I was worried I had got a lemon but did some googling online.

    Short Thoughts on the M1 iPad Pro

    I will leave the long form reviews to those who do it as a living but thought Iโ€™d post some of my notes after a weekend with the new device.
