It’s Memon Mondays!
This newsletter is my experiment to save all the cool things I find during the week and share them with my like-minded friends.
Bouncing DVD Logo If you are old enough, you know exactly what this is. Every DVD player had this ‘screensaver’. Interesting fact, the bouncing logo wasn't just for fun, but was important to prevent screen burn-in on CRTs. If you had a static image on a CRT for a long time, it could damage the phosphor. Screensavers served the same purpose. Also, DVD logo obviously reminds me of this scene.
Avatarify — Run realtime deepfakes on live video callsNow that Zoom meetings are all the rage, people are getting really creative, maybe a bit too much. This code allows you to impersonate another person; a celebrity for example. Cool tech!
ZoomerBackgrounds — community-sourced virtual video backgroundsSpeaking of Zoom, this website has cool backgrounds to use. I personally like Snap Camera’s potato filter.
OpenCore — Hackintosh Alternative to CloverHackintosh is an act of booting macOS on non-Apple machine. Clover is the bootloader commonly used to boot macOS, OpenCore is an alternative to Clover.
I haven’t made a Hackintosh in a looong time. It looks like the process has become much reliable these days. Have you done it recently?
Crank.js – Write JSX-driven components with functions, promises and generatorsCrank is an alternative UI library to React. If you are a React developer, you probably are aware of how it is going into a weird direction with the new features like Hooks, Suspense, etc. I actually side with the author of Crank actually but am still exploring the framework.
—————————————————GAME OF THE WEEK
Have you played My Friend Pedro? I was following this game’s from early prototypes to its release and finally got time to play some. It’s so much fun! If you liked Max Payne, it’s a bit like that. I am still playing this one but I love it so far. The game is available on PC, PS4 and Switch. It’s on sale right now for Switch and PC (Steam).
