Interesting Reads for the Week Ending July 30th
Here’s what I read that I found interesting over the past week.
Here are the rules for what articles I choose to include in this weekly roundup:
- It can’t be anything I wrote.
- It has to be something I actually read. Nothing that simply had an interesting headline.
- I have to have read it since the previous post. It does not have to be something that was written in the past week.
- It has to be something I read online. In other words, it has to be a webpage with a URL.
This article - You Can Now Revisit the Most Popular Desktop Publishing App of the ’80s in Your Browser - reminded me of the desktop publishing software we used on our first computer when I was a kid. It was some sort of Tandy - sold by RadioShack - and it printed on a dot matrix printer. No color.
A few weeks ago I shared a bit about the electric future of Jeep. Well, Chrystler is hinting that electric Jeeps will be able to drive fully underwater. Check out this article Jeep’s Underwater Electric Wrangler Teaser Isn’t As Unhinged As It May Appear and the following video:
It’s About to Get Harder to Buy a Gaming PC but not because of chip shortages, but because of legal red tape.
Finally, not quite an article, but the CDC’s COVID Data Tracker is pretty interesting.
