Who remembers Vine??

This week’s tech recs: Cassidy recommends her Hifiman headphones. Ben recommends his hybrid RAV4 (42 miles on the battery alone). Matt recommends Spline, a design app for 3D internet experiences. Ceora’s suggestion is a transparent telephone case from Five Below, good for displaying a photograph of your favourite Okay-pop idol (or, you realize, your canine).

Plus, Mattaniah and the group get gushy about “unimaginable,” “joyful,” “tremendous accessible” artistic code educator Daniel Shiffman.

This week’s Lifeboat badge goes to consumer Maulik Hirani for his or her reply to New Google Places Autocomplete and its pricing.
