Privacy Shield – Death Coming?

Privacy Shield is on a very basic level something that we in the EU rely on when transferring data to the US under GDPR, without this in place it gets very complex and time intensive. I appreciate the need to keep challenging and improving the regulations, but if its torn up on 1st September with nothing to replace it available, this will be a headache!

Battery Pack with Lightning Input – finally!

Can’t believe this has taken so long to be developed/released. Now a battery pack where you only have to bring 1 cable to both charge your device, but then also to recharge the battery pack. Granted USB-C iPhones and battery packs, with option of bi-directional charging sounds like nirvana, but baby steps
