Haven’t been on for a few weeks. Here are some stories I found interesting in the last couple of weeks.
- Google Enhanced Job Search - Google is adding enhanced job search capabilities to the search engine. You could always search for jobs, but this is a new effort to really improve the experience.
- 9to5 Mac: 10.5 inch iPad Pro Review - It looks like getting one of these is gonna be a must. From the reviews I have read, the bigger screen with the 120 Hz refresh is just the bomb. Gonna start saving.
- Does being online Popular make us Unhappy? - Yes says Polly Vernon in the UK Telegraph.
- PC Mag: 12 New Mac OS High Sierra Features - #1 for me? Automatcially muting video or audio content I didn’t ask to play. Half the time, the stupid audio comes on so loud it scares me.
Narcos Quick Review (4/5)
Just finished season 2 of Narcos on Netflix. It is the story of Pablo Escobar and his drug cartel. If you haven’t seen, it watch it. It is well acted and super interesting. I never really understood the level of violence that occurred in Colombia once his empire started to crumble. Not for the feint of heart if dislike excessive violence.
Wonder Woman Quick Review (5/5)
DC finally made a awesome comic book movie. (Suicide Squad was good, but it could have been soooo much better.) Gal Gadot was perfect for Diana. When she was first tipped for the role, I had my doubts given her super model background. However, she was super athletic and was very believable as a character that trained 5 or 6 hours a day. The movie moves really well considering its length. Hopefully, Gal will make 3 or 4 more movies just as good.
