I thoroughly enjoyed Jamie Bartlett's podcast 'The Missing Crypto Queen'.
The 8 episodes pulls at the loose strings behind the 'crypto currency' OneCoin, and is a great example of investigate journalism in podcast form.
easyJet and Gatwick airport has been trialling a new boarding process: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/business-50214631. "One challenge in any controlled boarding process is our ability to communicate the pattern to passengers and the willingness of passengers to comply."
Holy shit, Samsung Smart TVs straight up send "snippets" of things that you watch back home to "to provide you with customized Smart TV experiences".
Search that page for the text: "Your Smart TV transfers video snippets or TV tuner information in order to determine the programs watched."
Schiphol provided an example of good boarding process. Area at gate big enough to accommodate all passengers. Clearly marked lines for priority and regular mortal flyers, and finally, info over PA about boarding procedure 10mins in advance. This was a @KLM flight.
Some bastards stole my bike from within our property last weekend. I'm now perusing eBay and Gumtree for bike listings to see if my bike comes for sale there.
Reported it to the police, but not much to do about it. No witnesses, no CCTV footage, nothing left behind.
If you are in London and you see a Trek District bicycle with a carbon belt drive, please let me know. I'm hoping to be reunited with my bike
