greg morris - Making my phone worse
>I’ve been thinking a lot about the current trend to criticise the use of technology. Make your phone black and white, leave it at home etc etc. Everybody seems to warn of a world that is ruined by technology, but it’s not technology, it’s money that ruins it all. Every social media platform or game is designed to keep attention fixed as long as possible. Not to make you a better person, not to improve your life but simply to sell adverts.
>I have been working hard to curb my usage, be aware of applications that pull me in and waste my time. With that said I’m not going to make my phone worse to stop it. I’m not going to dull the screen, or remove apps I use. I love having a technology multi-tool in my pocket, I’m just going to use it the right way.

The Chinese Factory Workers Who Write Poems on Their Phones | Literary Hub
I swallowed an iron moon
they called it a screw

I swallowed industrial wastewater and unemployment forms
bent over machines, our youth died young

I swallowed labor, I swallowed poverty
swallowed pedestrian bridges, swallowed this rusted-out life

I can’t swallow any more
everything I’ve swallowed roils up in my throat

I spread across my country
a poem of shame

How to Add Icons to iPhone, iPad & Android to Your Website
Many sites currently add a favicon before launch that is visible in your user’s browser tabs and bookmarks, but lots of sites are still missing icons for iOS. By adding an iOS icon, anyone who decides to save your webpage to the home screen of their iPhone, iPad, or Android* will see a nice app-like icon rather than an image of your page.
