🎞️ Watching

The Future Of (TV show)

The latest docuseries on Netflix to catch my eye was The Future Of — start with the episode on Houseplants (20min) to have your mind expanded, man. Like, there’s a possible future where our plants could store our data in their DNA!? I’ll never look at a (seemingly unassuming) plant the same way again.

Beating the cost of living crunch (podcast episode)

With so many prices on the rise —energy, petrol, houses, lettuce, etc— I’ve been going through my budget with a fine tooth comb looking for that ‘one quick fix’, but as usual it’s the combination of many small fixes that add up to make a difference. This episode of It All Adds Up has some great suggestions, a worthy 29 minutes of your day, I reckon!

📱 Using

1Password (app)

If you’ve never used a password manager, now is definitely the time to start! These apps securely store all of your passwords, so you can have a unique password for every login you need, but only have to remember ‘one password’ (which is the one to access your password manager). If you have NFI where to start, I got you: How to secure your online accounts using a password manager, or just watch the video (8min) below 😚
