Stuart Langridge, Jono Bacon, and Jeremy Garcia present Bad Voltage, in which the hardest part of being a developer is personal development, the BV team average two-thirds of a workout per day, and:

  • [00:02:10] Apple release the Apple Watch 4 with a bunch of health additions, and iOS 12 is apparently pretty good, while at the same time they reject iPhone apps which mention the new Apple phone models … Signing into a Google thing now signs you into the browser whether you want it or not, although it can at least be turned off in later versions if you don’t like it … Elon Musk is in the early stages of McAfee syndrome, according to a chap on Twitter … Jono’s got a Peloton exercise bike and has a mini review…
  • [00:38:50] Linus Torvalds writes that he’s taking some time off to get some assistance in understanding people’s emotions and apologises for his past behaviour, vowing to try to do better. The community welcome this new personal insight, or condemn other people for unduly influencing Linus into this decision, and everything in between. We have some thoughts on how we got here, and what’s next.
