Ⅰ - [Environment
]> Is carbon capture here? Asks a New York Times headline. If we can capture carbon from the atmosphere reliably, it may ease our warming future
]> Microsoft’s Edge browser is now stable for Linux
. Microsoft’s improbable support for open source rolls on.
]> DJI has released new drones in its Mavic line
. The Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine are now available.
Ⅳ - [Health
]> Pfizer is working on a COVID vaccine in pill form and it seems to be quite effective
Ⅴ - [Security
]> The RCMP is looking for companies that can use Artificial intelligence to crack secure passwords
Ⅵ - [Hardware
]> Microsoft announced a Chromebook competitor, the $249USD Surface Laptop SE

. Did it age well? Probably, but the rebuttal is worth the read 😊
Ⅸ - [Quantum
