Singaporean Kopi Style Coffee Roasting

This is one roasting style I didn't know. Adding sugar and margarine to an already dark roast? It must taste so different to what I like that I want to try it.

Affinity Publisher Beta

I’ve been using the Affinity Publisher Beta for a few months now, and I can say that even if it’s not on par with inDesign yet (or maybe it will never be), it can certainly do 95% of what is needed. The final version could be definitely used for professional work. Fresh competition in the desktop publishing world is a good thing.

Facebook and Domination

This article is a good recap of the recent Facebook findings (health apps sharing personal data with it, exploiting the phone number asked for two-factor authentication etc.), along the hypothesis of Facebook becoming what WeChat is in China. Scary but possible.

Huawei Cloning Apple Parts

An earlier Apple-related incident, according to one source, involved Huawei copying a 2016 connector design used to make the MacBook Pro hinge thinner while linking the display to the logic board. A similar component then appeared in Huawei’s 2018 MateBook Pro, something achieved by shopping Apple’s schematic around to various suppliers — most of which recognized the design and refused to build it. Eventually the company found a willing partner.

Not a fan of Huawei.
