Hello (Black) Friday! How's your week been? Here are 5 things I'd like to share with you today:
Sick of all the Black Friday ads yet? Yeah, me too. In Ryan Reynold's latest skit, he pokes fun at the overuse of midroll and product placement in advertising. The irony isn't lost on me - I know this is still an ad itself. Made me laugh all the same though!
I recently installed a new browser extension called Honey that automatically finds and applies coupon codes when you're shopping online. I haven't bought anything with the extension installed yet, but according to Honey, the average discount you can get on your purchases is 17.9%. Not bad! Download the Honey extension for free here.
If you were a kid in the 90s you'll definitely remember the iconic toy Tamagotchi. They're pretty hard to find in shops nowadays, but developer Grace Avery has created a Tamagotchi-style digital pet called Touchbar Pet that lives inside the MacBook Pro Touch Bar. I for one am loving my new digital friend and promise to love and care for him every day. Bring on the 90s nostalgia!
