The pictures tell the story. 64GB SanDisk microSD XC I Class 10 card bought from Amazon and was being used in the Sandisk microSD to SD card adapter when it got super hot and melted the adapter. SanDisk support were worryingly blasé about it when I spoke with them, they didn’t seem to see the problem with a microSD card getting hot enough to melt plastic and just asked for it to be returned for a replacement.
2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. Highest possible spec, 2TB SSD, 16GB RAM, 4GB GPU, 2.9Ghz i7.

No apps open at the time. I had just launched the Migration Assistant as I was about to start pulling over all my content from my old 2012 retina MacBook Pro. Migration Assistant had just logged me out automatically and then I opted to quit migration assistant and do some more housekeeping on my old rMBP before migrating data. I quit the Migration Assistant and was presented with the login screen. I tried touchID which failed as it required password, typed in password, screen went blank for 5 to 10 seconds and then had terrible graphic glitches, mainly a yellow wave hue all over the screen that moved when windows were moved around. Issue was still present after changing the resolution in the settings. Issue persisted for around 5 minutes before returning to normal.

I bought my RX100M3 in December 2014 and it’s pretty much the only camera I use to capture my personal memories and I choose to leave the bulky Canon 5D Mark iii for work only events.
In the last 8 months I’ve taken my trusty RX100M3 skiing in Austria, a long weekend in Paris, a stag week in Vegas, a week at Glastonbury Festival and most recently a week in Switzerland. I look after my kit and it’s never dropped, exposed to moist or excessively dusty environments, kept in a soft pouch, etc. It’s got an official Sony screen protector on the rear and Sony grip on the front. (If you are reading this and you own any RX100 model do yourself a massive favour and buy the Sony stick on grip, you’ll thank me).
So on my latest trip to Switzerland I was trying to capture the beautiful lake view and instantly noticed a large dark spot in the sky on every image.
