(And any warranty issues here are 5x the problem as we have no Apple Stores to bring it to, so a 'generous' repair program doesn't quite make that a more palatable option than fixing the design)

The keyboard repair situation is a tough one, because it doesn't fix the issue — just pushes the problem down the road, out of your warranty window. Working input is so important; I wouldn't even consider recommending a current MB/P to anybody w/o a new & proven-fixed kb design https://t.co/gWD0OSs3gt

Economic Credibility and Human Sacrifice – Oolong – Medium
"Human sacrifice plays two very different roles. Firstly, of course, it appeases the gods, or at least people’s sense that something must be done. Secondly, it helps enforce a rigid social hierarchy. ‘By using human sacrifice to punish taboo violations, demoralise the underclass and instil fear of social elites, power elites were able to maintain and build social control,’ as the author of a study published in Nature put it.

In the wake of the financial crash, we could have seen the government making tough decisions like raising taxes on the rich, holding bankers to account, and investing to help protect those who were hardest hit by the crisis through no fault of their own. Many economists argued for actions along these lines. Instead we saw the exact opposite, combined with a campaign to blame ‘skivers’ and disabled people for their own poverty, while shocking numbers of them died as a result of these policy decisions. Taboo violations were punished with sanctions on already-reduced benefits, while education and health suffered, police and fire services saw huge cuts, and bankers and property developers remained as unaccountable as ever. The gods of capital were appeased, but it has not worked. Perhaps we’ve been making the wrong kinds of sacrifice. Perhaps it’s time to try something different?"

Will launching plants into orbit yield new medicines?
The test tubes didn’t look much like planet Earth. There were four of them stuck into a white, 3-D printed frame, each one home to a spindly plant sprouting from a dab of lab-made jelly. It was to a garden what Soylent is to confit de canard with fingerling potatoes and mesclun greens.

Apple Maps could really do with a "I searched for a local noodle restaurant and it brought up a location in Malaysia" file-a-report button. You can file a report on incorrect data, but you can't tell it its search result was so irrelevant it deserved public shame 😜

Great to see Apple finally recognize that the new butterfly keyboards are busted. Hopefully this means a redesign is coming shortly as well 🙏 (and please drop the touchbar too!). https://t.co/Iu5Ws9pCJx

Why touchscreens in cars don’t work (UX Collective)
Jacky Li из Connected Lab провел несколько пользовательских исследований на тему управления функциями машины с помощью сенсорного экрана и голоса. Сенсорные экраны, очевидно, отвлекают водителя. Но и голосовое управление не лучше.

Voice of Europe -- German "refugees welcome" activist murdered after hitching ride with Moroccan truck driver
'...A Civil Guard traffic control stopped the truck on Tuesday on a road near the Spanish city of Bailén in Jaén. The driver wanted to go to the Strait of Gibraltar, take a ferry and get off in Morocco, where he wanted to protect himself from European justice. -- On Wednesday he was transferred to the Central Examining Court No. 6 of the Audiencia Nacional. His confession made it possible to locate the body of the young woman yesterday, her case had been reported in the German media after her family reported her disappearance 24 hours after her death. -- She had worked with an NGO on the Greek island of Lesbos, where she helped these so-called refugees. Sources consulted by the media emphasized that the body showed “clear symptoms of violence”. The perpetrator had obviously intended to rape her.'
