It seems impossible to set both a light’s color and brightness in a single Google Assistant command, and that is annoying me a lot more than reason allows. (I don’t want to set up scenes for all possible combinations and then have to remember their names.)

I went to Habitat yesterday and got a Siri suggestion on my lock screen for a note that lists a bunch of stuff I want to buy from Ikea, with one mention of Habitat. Creepy, but well done.

Just now my iPhone suggested the same note again because it’s been exactly 24 hours 🤪

It is a crazy story. With many twists and turns, including a fake invoice, an escape from SF, and more. [buzzfeednews.com]

This is a good primer on why we’re not pursuing end-to-end encryption for email in HEY. Email is wonderful for so many things, but giving false hope about airtight security is not one of them. Use Signal when that’s the case. [latacora.micro.blog]
