Look at this wacky fish ARG about exploring abandoned websites

It’s a new browser ARG thing by Nathalie Lawhead who has made many odd things wot RPS folk have enjoyed like Froggy and Cyberpet Graveyard.

Welcome to the internet of yore where gifs have three frames apiece, your CRT monitor flickers, and everything your mouse hovers over has some wild effect.

Also there are actual mice, gif mice, inside the website feasting on the dead links which you must explore and then feed them.

Finding the fish’s friend and feeding the mouse named Verm will net me the keys to escape the fishy site.

Ah wait, the PDF is a tiny zine, likely made with the Electric Zine Maker, another of Lawhead’s projects, mentioned on the previous page.

Mesh and paper-pulp partitions feature inside Nanjing's Shiwu store

Mesh panels dipped in paper pulp, polycarbonate and OSB timber merge to form the textured interior of this lifestyle store in Nanjing, China, designed by architecture studio CATS.

Kengo Kuma Associates also threw paper pulp at mesh panels to create light-filtering screens inside Paris' Archives Antoni Clavé.

CATS isn't the only studio to make use of paper pulp.

In an effort to soften the appearance of the store's metal surfaces, the architects also dipped each mesh panel in paper pulp to create a slightly webbed effect across its openings.

Panels of expanded metal mesh wrap the peripheral walls of the store and, in places, extend into the space to serve as semi-transparent partitions.

Leak suggests OPPO is working on a new pair of true wireless earbuds

OPPO already has a wireless earbud solution with the OPPO Enco Free, available in three colors, but according to a recent Weibo report, the company might be working on a follow-up.

Or, this could be just an abandoned project, as the report simply qualifies them as “unreleased” products.

The renders suggest a pill shape, similar to the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, but, by contrast, the charging case opens in a clamshell style.

Not much else is being revealed, but the report also contains renders of two other headphones, which are similar in style to the OPPO Enco Q1.

Food delivery apps, the pandemic and finding a new normal

For example, if you're ordering food from a restaurant, go as contactless as possible, from actual payments to tips to having the delivery person leave the food on your doorstep or in your lobby rather than handing it directly to you.

In uncertain times, should delivery even be an option?Still, there is a wider concern which goes beyond the powers of a delivery platform: Researchers are unsure of how long COVID-19 lives on surfaces like paper, cardboard and plastic, all of which are used in food delivery.

As far as food delivery goes, the company has waived the delivery fee for independent restaurants and rather than instituting contactless delivery company-wide, simply offers an option in the app to have the delivery person leave your food at the door.

DoorDash, which also owns Caviar, has implemented no-contact delivery: Delivery people pick up and drop off packages without interacting face to face with either restaurant workers or customers, by, for example, having them grab prepared bags from a designated table, text customers when they arrive and leave food on a doorstep.

He thinks restaurants need to take control of the situation as much as they can, redesigning menus to offer simpler dishes that must be reheated, packaged in materials that require customers to transfer the food into microwave or oven-safe containers.

Insane Resident Evil 3 demo mod turns all zombie into Nemesis

It didn't take long, but there are already crazy mods out for the Resident Evil 3 Remake demo that was released only last week.

Normally you'd only face one Nemesis in Resident Evil 3 but this mod cranks up the insanity, difficulty (and some hilarity) to the max.

You can check out the mod in action here: For those of you who haven't played Resident Evil 3 Remake or the original, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, you might not have encountered the terrifying Nemesis weapon before.

Resident Evil 2 Remake also received the same treatment, adding multiple Mr X Tyrants spawning, or even changing him into Thomas the Tank Engine in a truly nightmarish mod.

Just like the mods created for Resident Evil 2 Remake, there are sure to be plenty when the game fully releases on April 3.

All iPhone production in India suspended during the 21-day lockdown period

As an effort to isolate the coronavirus, the Indian government has called a nationwide lockdown.

Now, according to a report, Apple’s iPhone production has also been suspended.

Foxconn has ceased operation until April 14.

“Foxconn and Wistron Corp. have suspended production at their India plants, which include the assembly of some Apple Inc. iPhone models, in order to comply with a nationwide lockdown ordered by Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Foxconn said in a statement to Bloomberg.

If the lockdown is suspended as scheduled, the production could be resumed on April 15.

5 Acer Products That Will Keep You Productive At Home During Malaysia's MCO

Being stuck during the Movement Control Oder (MCO) has forced many of us to work from home.

Despite how convenient it seems, a home can come off as not a very productive setting, considering how home doesn't always have office-like seating with proper tables and chairs for working long periods of time.

Take it from me, I'm currently working on the dining table.

As such, it was interesting to see what Acer has to offer to help out those in need of the right device to help them with this current situation.

5 fun, easy photo projects you can do at home with just your phone

Still life could include lots of different types of shots -- from bright and airy top-down shots of a lovely salad or freezer meal you've made, to product photos of your laptop, games controller, new shoes or indeed anything you think could photograph well.

In my instance, I wanted to composite myself into the same scene multiple times -- almost as though it's showing all the different things I could be up to throughout the day in one image.

Composite photography means blending different photographic elements from multiple images into one finished shot.

If you're self-isolating at home due to the coronavirus, don't think there's no opportunity to flex your photography muscles -- there are plenty of ways you can sharpen up your creative photography at home using just your phone, whether you're shooting on an iPhone 11 Pro, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Pixel 4 or another, older phone.

Both the Android and iOS app stores are full of apps that offer a wealth of creative editing options for your images, with a seemingly infinite number of filters, frames and funky flair you can apply.

5 of the most relaxing Spotify white noise playlists for working from home

Nothing interrupts the flow of a soothing Spotify white noise playlist like a jarring transition between one track and the next.

I’ve gathered five of my favorite white, pink, and brown noise playlists on Spotify.

Some of the playlists feature the calming, droning sounds of household appliances, such as fans, air conditioners, and washing machines; others include the natural sounds of rainforests and the crashing surf.

It turns out that Spotify is a gold mine when it comes to white, pink, and brown noise playlists, while a search for “ambient sounds” yields a mix of the three.

There’s also “pink noise,” which is like white noise but at a higher frequency, encompassing sounds such as rainfall or a soft breeze.
