I’ve only had 3 hours of sleep because I started reading a YA novel last night at 9 that I only stopped reading at 4am because I fell asleep. With only 30 pages to go, I had to wait until after work to find out what happens at the end. It didn’t disappoint. The last time this happened was when I read Twilight. The book? One of Us is Lying. And even with my binge reading on a school night, I still kept an eye on the internet to make sure you have all the important online news in snackable bytes. Here’s this week’s Bytesized:
These include a toilet roll, tooth, superheroes and gingers. I am sure gingers are happy as they are now represented (apparently the Scots are over the moon), but to me, the only thing that matters is the animal emoji.
If you have 2 minutes to spare, you can watch a video of all of the new emoji. But like I said, let’s get to the animals, so scroll on.
I’m most excited for the racoon, llama, hedgehog and T-Rex. I have no idea when I will use these, but still, I’m excited. These new emoji will be rolled out throughout 2018. I don’t have these yet ???.
And now we are in an era where Gen Z yellow is a thing. It’s almost like Minion yellow, which is also an actual colour. But back to Crayola, what would you name this blue? I’d go with Blue McBlueFace in an ode to Boaty McBoatFace. This is why we can’t have nice things.
?What you need to know to sound like you know about Apple’s WWDC 2018 update
While Google had its keynote a few weeks ago, Apple hosted their own this week. It was mainly a software-focused update, but just so that you sound cool when someone mentions it (and if they own ANY Apple product, it will be mentioned), here’s what you need to know:
Limit the amount of time you use an app for and see which apps you spend the most time on
Siri got a much needed update (she now integrates with other hardware)
Memoji (and not iMoji) that allows you to create emoji that look like you
FaceTime now has group calling for up to 32 people
With iOS12 you can stop Facebook from tracking you
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
