North announced this morning that they’ve been acquired by Google, and it’s possibly the most interesting news that I’ve heard so far this year in tech.
Over the last 20 years I’ve been doing my own thing, and there have been highs and lows, but I’m feeling very happy and fortunate to see one success that stands out today, and it seems like a good time to celebrate since Canada Day is coming up.
What did you expect this year? Not this, I imagine, and if you were planning a holiday, there’s certainly some good news ahead, but there’s also a new reality we need to embrace.
It’s hard to overstate what George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead did for horror. He was ahead of his time. The films helped set a style, tone, and visual language for what we imagine when we think of zombies, and he also used the films to talk about social issues.
The DJI Mavic Air 2 is a real surprise, and it’s gotten me excited to get out more for some spring droning. If you only expected a few updates from the original, you’re in for a real treat with the new drone.
The days have been different, but technology has been impressively helpful during these strange times. I’m streaming more, taking guitar lessons online, working, and at times, trying to be creative too.
Huawei released their FreeBuds 3 wireless earbuds in Canada last week, and they’re my new favourite accessory for my P30 Pro.
There’s a bit of magic in the iPhone 11, or else Apple just makes a seriously tough phone. Or maybe it’s both.
CES 2020 is in the books and I’m so tired. It was worth it though. Now that it’s over, I finally have time to start sharing what I’ve seen this week.
The last two weeks have been a bit of a break for a change, after what I can only call one of the best years ever for The GATE. There were highs and lows, but most of all, I just feel very thankful.
