“Bathrooms that are so cold that you piss steam” is apparently going to be a recurring theme for me today.

UK pol, transphobia 

love this idea that some changes to a law from 2004 that the government had a consultation about in 2018 and another one in 2020(?) is being "rushed"

iOS 16.2 will introduce opt-in End to End encryption for most elements of iCloud (all elements that don't rely on legacy integrations - eg. Calendar, Mail, Contacts). US users will get it this year, others will get it early 2023.
