    https://www.gsmarena.com/apple_confirm_slowing_down_old_iphones-news-28812.php I'm really surprised this hasn't blown up more on the internet. Surely it's up to the end user if they want to have shorter battery life over CPU performance.

    The Ultimate-64!

    I'm looking for some free software to layout and print basic circuits so that I can etch them myself. Nothing too fancy just single sided stuff. I'm sick of using veroboard and want to try and make the circuits a bit cleaner. Any recommendations?
