YouTube: Visualization of Quantum Physics (Quantum Mechanics)
I watch a lot of videos on YouTube about science, and Quantum Physics is super interesting (but god damn mind breaking)

This is supposed to be a quick video to show a visualisation of particles, their quantum states, and calculating their position and velocity.

I can 100% admit, this one went straight over my head.

Their words: "The simplest way to cost effectively store, serve, backup, and archive a virtually infinite amount of media, web content, images, and static files for your web applications."

Mac Developers Survey Results 2017
Setapp ran a survey recently asking developers of Mac apps their opinions on the Mac App Store, what can be improved, and general opinions on each part of the process.

They received 742 responses (me being one of them), and the data is very interesting to see. Especially as they did the same last year, so you can compare each result to see how it has changed.
