👋🏻 Hello. It’s great to bring you a new edition of TimeMachiner this Tuesday. A big welcome to Angelo, Matt, and the 6 newest subscribers to TimeMachiner. A shout out to those of you coming from Pearl Runner. Thank you for giving me space in your inbox. 🙏🏻

It’s been a good week of interesting stories I’ve gathered from around the unexplored corners of the internet. Today I’ve broken down the announcements from Apple’s annual WWDC while also remaining quite skeptical about what Barnes & Noble is up to in the eBook space.

If you haven’t had a chance yet to read the last issue I sent of The Longform, you can read it here. If you hate the fact that old stuff just works while every new device requires a zillion updates before using it, this one is for you.

Today’s featured image is something I put into the image AI project called DALL-E. This is an AI that attempts to create wholly original pictures from any query you give it. You can get the scoop here and learn more about it. It has a long way to go, but the fact that this works at all is super interesting.

Onto today’s random factoid: Venus spins the wrong way compared to other planets. Source
