Hi there!
How are you? I’m exhausted, suffering from a work hangover, if there’s such a thing. We’ve launched and delivered several projects the past two weeks, and it’s taken its toll. You can see it on the Bored Horse site, and its lack of updates. I’ve got plans for it, though, and I hope to get back to proper blogging again in a few weeks. Not to mention writing, and those pesky quarterly goals
Anyway, I hope you’ll find something interesting to read in this week’s issue. Let’s get to it!

📦 This old post surfaced a little while ago: A collection of old Swedish product packaging.
🇷🇺 Who has Putin’s ear? That’s not entirely clear, even after reading this piece. Let’s hope someone sensible steps up soon.
🗓 I wrote about using the default Calendar app in this week’s issue of Switch to iPad. Then a reader reached out to me and told me of a feature that really should be more widely known.
🦃 Elon Musk is now the biggest owner of Twitter (who also owns Revue, the newsletter service I’m using for these letters), and immediately became a board member. He doesn’t intend to sit idly, it seems 👇🏻

@paraga Looking forward to working with Parag & Twitter board to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!
I dread where this is going. At least there’ll be an edit button, for some.
💵 A former Block employee downloaded a bunch of data from the company’s Cash App product.
🙊 Mailchimp had a “security incident”, which is a weird way of acknowledging that 319 accounts were affected by people trying to get some sort of crypto scam going.
🧹 Does it matter how a vacuum cleaner looks? Sure it does, as long as it functions as intended, obviously. Anyway, this essay might start off with vacuum cleaners, but is really about millennial aesthetics in product design and marketing. It was an interesting read.
💝 Taking a slow approach to love, through casual dating (what a weird phrase), isn’t working, or so some claim. Either way, interesting essay for someone who’s been in relationships close to his whole life.
Let’s have Elijah Wood break the news of the new Monkey Island game, shall we? 👇🏻
Devolver Digital
Introducing Return to Monkey Island, a new game by Ron Gilbert that picks up where Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge left off.

🇺🇦 There’s still a war in Ukraine. This issue is surprisingly free of reports from the war, which isn’t to say that it isn’t taking place. Please consider donating to one of the major relief organizations, like UNICEF or Save the Children.

Thanks for reading
That’s it for this week. I was looking forward to an easy weekend, finally, but I’ll have to work, unfortunately. It’s the last push before Easter. Wow, does it feel like I’ve said that before…
Have a great weekend!
