The Plain Team

This intro paragraph isn’t where the good stuff is. That’s all down below in our 13th edition of this amazing Links from Last Week post. But hey, while we’ve got your attention, we’re wondering if anyone else obsessively collects links from across the net and saves them for later, or if we’re the only ones. Why not share your links with us? You never know - you might find yourself featured in our next Links from Last Week post!

Night Shift Coming Soon — The next iOS 9.3 will include a feature that will, based on your location, shift the colors of light emitted from iPhones from cool blue light to a warmer color. This feature mimics the popular f.lux desktop app (featured in lflw 2) and should make trolling Reddit late at night a lot more comfortable for many of us. 

Have DSLR, Will Use — If you have an SLR camera and are nervous to take it out of auto mode, this is the tutorial for you.”  We are big fans of plain speak and hope you find this tutorial helpful. 

Minimalist Legos — Lego recently announced they would be working to create sustainable Legos. We think the Japanese alternative to Legos are pretty swell. They’re made from wood, small, simple, and fully extensible.
