First time looking online this morning... Seems like a game of sports balls has brought out the worst in a bunch of english people.

Kicking the ball not as good as other people can kick the ball is sad indeed but nothing to be massively violent or racist about.

Devastated. We go again at the World Cup next year

Just had some Italian food. If it doesn’t come home tonight, I’m going to blame myself

May I introduce you please, to a lump of cheddar cheese?

“We’re no longer a photo-sharing app or a square photo-sharing app.”

The end of an era, Instagram is now focusing primarily on video.

Another of my favorite podcasts is going "spotify only". Reminder, in case you support spotify, that they are terrible and are ruining the last widely used distributed part of the web.

I recommended that my friend download F-droid and Aurora store yesterday and he’s really impressed with them.
I use an iPhone but he knows that I’m “into tech”, so he was telling me about all the problems he’s been having with his phone lately. I don’t know what he’s installed but it’s great that FOSS on mobile is providing such a good user experience
