If Americans would extend the life of their cellphones by one year, for instance, it would be the climate-saving equivalent of taking 636,000 cars off the road, or about the amount of passenger vehicles registered in the state of New Mexico.

Nice to see things moving in the right direction. I just replaced the battery on my iPhone 6s for the third time. A repair centre will charge about €50 to do it for you and if you do it yourself, like I did, it will cost you €20. The constant need to upgrade is a disease.

Mac users: the first public beta of Omniweb 5 is out and first signs are good. Lots of cool stuff including workspaces (fantastic), rss support, shared bookmarks, popup trap, loads of useful little extras for web developers, and much more… The version of webcore used is a bit behind Safari feature-wise, but that’s a small detail compared to all the rest.
