The tech industry is notorious for evolving fast and this month is no exception. This helpful article will helpfully summarise everything that’s changed. Reading about how much can change in only a month really helps you gain some perspective, and respect for the industry, lets dive in…
· Chrome 72 released the User Activation API. In addition, this new version also disables popups on pageunload.
· Finally, Safari’s 12.1 notes are out. Introducing smarter tracking prevention, night mode for the web and push notifications now require a motion from the user or to change the orientation in the settings, it’s important to note this is disabled by default.
· Max Böck explains why they think simplicity is one of the most important and valuable things in a project.

· UX design is so important and can make the difference in making a good digital product great. However, an interesting article has been released that could fundamentally change UX design. The article states we should stop seeing them as users but as humans.
· Google has always tried to find ways around privacy and trying to get the most information possible out of its users. In the latest development Google wants to sell your exact location to urban planners to improve planning. On one hand it could be seen as good, however, as with all things with google you can never be sure on what is going on behind the scenes.
· Ethics have always been important on the web especially since it is so new, the morals and ethics of the internet are still being developed and perfected. An interesting article written last month by Aral Balkan reveals how even the most honourable open sourced projects struggle to uphold their ethical code.
