Jeff Bezos got to try out one of the giant mechs of Hankook Mirae Technology. Yes, those 4m tall Method-2 beasts. No, there's no video of him in it that I've seen (but if you haven't seen the Method-2 itself before, see youtube for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNhC0CP4sS0 )

I can't help but notice that Outlook has the option of displaying the temperature in your calendar in Fahrenheit or in Celsius. And it defaults to the former.
Since Outlook also has your city location, why doesn't it have a third option (set to default) which is use the metric or imperial type that matches your city
Sigh.
This is something many things could use. Take information item 1 and use it to help select a default on information item 2.

Rethinking the future of work
Richard Di Natale of the Australian Greens discuss trialling a UBI as per other countries, for "a 21st century economy, where work is changing radically".
Richard elaborates, saying it could enhance creativity, promote innovation and "reset what is meaningful in our lives".
He also raises the notion that we should discuss the disparity in working hours, where some people are unable to find work, or enough hours of work, whereas others are overworked and would benefit and prefer being able to work fewer hours or days.

Google phone auto-correct: I think you mean plannable.
Me: Oh, interesting...


Auto-correct that makes you wonder
Me: rants about the erosion of privacy and the surveillance state and corporations owning every bit of data on our health and our lives leading to a future dystopia...
Google phone auto-correct: I think you mean utopia.
Me: hmmm...
