I wrote about Barinsta (formerly InstaGrabber) before. The creator has now received a cease and desist letter from Facebook. That’s probably the death for this project.

I’ve only been using the MX Master 3 and the MX Keys from Logitech for a few days now, but I must say that my favorite feature of the MX Master 3 is definitely the “hyper-fast scrolling”. I don’t know how I got along with a mouse without this feature before. And also the MX Keys is a really awesome keyboard. The typing experience is so good!
