Sony Playstation’s console launch must feel bittersweet. On one hand, they are selling everything they have whilst demand remains through the roof. On the other hand they could be making so much more money. You only have to glimpse the excess prices scalpers are charging at the potential profits being lost.
Good enough for what you say? Have you ever got on the London Underground and heard a screeching sound in between stations? If you haven’t, consider yourself lucky. It’s gotten so bad that train drivers requested that Transport for London (TfL) equip them with some protection. It is a 105 decibel inconvenience, Londoners have to suffer everyday and makes me wonder why the regulators haven’t intervened to stop this ear assault on millions of commuters.
Spotify has been serious about podcasting for some time now but it doesn’t feel like it. You can understand the rationale to keep their fingers in the multiple pies of the audio experience simultaneously but they are sacrificing quality for breadth. As an avid podcast listener, the Spotify listening experience is painful. The current UI makes listening to music easy and podcasts clunky. It’s reached a point where I think Spotify needs a dedicated podcast app.
Games like the Dragon Age series are irreplaceable. It’s been many years and the games that provide that same level of attachment to game characters, deep branching choices that impact the narrative, epic adventure and grand world building, I can count on one hand. It’s like a meal, you will find food that tastes as good but really you want to experience that specific meal again.

Short answer no.
After the last few months of hot takes over the new GitHub Copilot AI, I wanted to explain why I’m excited for it as a Python programmer.
GitHub Copilot is a new AI system created by OpenAI that writes code for you based on the programmer outlining their requirements. The aim is the AI will be able to turn your human sentences into fully-fledged lines of code.
You’ve seen the memes and jokes on how you spend very little time actually writing code.
As a lifelong learner who has been studying online courses for years, it has been amazing seeing the progression of online courses in quality and accessibility. This has been fast tracked by the pandemic that has given remote workers, furloughed workers, university students and at home parents more time to invest in personal development.
Being able to access complete course syllabuses at top universities without paying hundreds of thousands of dollars is a massive opportunity. Some would say that university courses are being outdone by the interactive, practical and user-friendly set up of online courses.
Online courses have come a…
These are 10 things I’ve learned after 400+ hours playing Apex Legends.
Getting the odd Champion Victory is nice but getting into Platinum ranks requires a certain level of consistency beyond reflexes and hand eye coordination.
If I was going to write a Bible for new Apex Legends players it would prioritise these guidelines.
Just under 6 months and 120 hours later, I have completed the Data Scientist with Python Career track. Even though I have written the main review, I wanted to outline the areas for improvement in a separate post. Maybe this can be applied to other online courses teaching difficult, technical subjects with similar features as online learning continue to grow in popularity.
I’ve recently completed the Datacamp Data Scientist with Python Career Track and wanted to provide a review of my learning experience and how prepared I feel about working in Data Science going forward.
