It’s no secret that Apple is phasing 32-bit app support in macOS, so it’s better to find out which apps you rely on that still need updating. Your Mac can give you that information, but 32-bitCheck makes the process even easier. The app checks the apps in the folder you specify, plus you can tell it to check all bundles and Mach-O, too. Checking my Applications folder shows Adobe CS6 apps and FileMaker Pro 11 are 32-bit, so they’ll stop working whenever Apple makes the move to 64-bit only with macOS. 32-bitCheck is a free download at the Eclectic Light website.

Dr. Kiki Sanford is a neurophysiologist, a popular science communicator and creator of This Week in Science (TWIS) podcast and radio show. This is her fourth appearance here. In this episode, we chat about some some very interesting recent topics on TWIS. 1) Researchers showed that mini human brains implanted into mouse brains survived and functionally integrated into the host tissue. 2) Magnetoreception in birds is possible thanks to a protein in their eyes.

Emoji started with a single heart you could add to the end of a message on pagers, and evolved into a set of 176 icons from NTT DoCoMo. That’s grown to over 2,500 symbols with version for our smartphones and computers, along with a movie that literally no one should ever have to watch. Now there’s a book from Standards Manual exploring DoCoMo’s original emoji and the impact they’ve had around the world. These are the same people that made the amazing NASA and New York City Subway style guides, so this new book should be pretty amazing. It’s a Kickstarter project right now and for US$65 you get the book, and the companion app.
