A Pigeon Took These Photographs

'A photographer with a fascination for pigeons has attached small cameras to the birds so they can take photos'

Strictly for the birds. And the photo of the highway intersection looks like a soaring bird.

I decided to treat myself by buying a new satnav for the car. My car doesn't have a satnav built-in, which with hindsight is a good thing.

The new model is a Garmin DriveSmart 76. My main reason for upgrading was to get lifetime map updates, which are installed via WiFi, directly onto the satnav (no PC needed). For me this is a major benefit, as otherwise map updates require a Garmin app running on Mac or Windows. The new unit will replace a Garmin Nuvi 65 LM.

@fitheach You've got me thinking about an upgrade. I have to plug my Nuvi in to upgrade software and maps, and it's hit or miss whether the Garmin Express software actually recognises that it's plugged in.

@fitheach Sounds good. But update via WiFi is excellent.

Unpatchable security flaw in Apple Silicon Macs breaks encryption

'University researchers have found an unpatchable security flaw in Apple Silicon Macs, which would allow an attacker to break encryption and get access to cryptographic keys.
The flaw is present in M1, M2, and M3 chips, and because the failing is part of the architecture of the chips, there’s no way for Apple to fix it in current devices …'
