If the past month has taught us anything, it’s that many Americans have a long way to go in learning about black history and systemic racism in this country.

There are no sensors on the back of your iPhone for your finger to fiddle with—unlike, say, a Google Pixel, which does have a fingerprint sensor on the back—but a new feature debuting in iOS 14 allows you to tap the back of your iPhone to launch different iOS actions all the same. This “digital burping” gesture seems…Read more...

As much as “macOS Sausalito” might roll off the tongue, Big Sur is the California landmark repping Apple’s big operating system update this year. And what an update it is. If you hate how iOS or iPadOS looks, I’ve got some real bad news about macOS. You might want to sit down.Read more...

I love a good beta. And while I wouldn’t recommend that you install a developer beta of Apple’s just-announced operating systems on your primary devices, just in case something goes catastrophically wrong, the urge to play with new features is hard to ignore. Read more...

“Netflix and chill” was a great concept when the world was open and there was a plethora of other options that took us away from certain aspects of life. But now it’s safe to say that we are done enjoying the comforts of home, and aching to get out to a movie (or anything, really). Read more...

Happy Worldwide Developer Conference Day! In other words, “the day when Apple announces a bunch of software stuff.” Apple talked about improvements to each of its platforms during today’s virtual keynote for WWDC 2020, and we’re going to focus on the latest version of iOS—iOS 14—for this post.Read more...

The U.S. is currently facing a critical shortage of blood. Due to fears about the coronavirus, many blood drives were cancelled, perhaps because donors are feeling especially hesitant to sign up. Although there was a reduced need for blood during the lockdowns as many elective surgeries were postponed, the need for…Read more...

I love a food delivery system that is itself edible. Usually said delivery systems are employed in sweet and often ice cream-related scenarios (cones, waffle bowls), though one could argue that, when used correctly, the Bugle qualifies. But in my opinion, the best savory edible container is one that is made entirely …Read more...

I’ve had shoelaces come undone before. We all have. So if I need to stash something valuable on my person—like a car key (while I’m running) or a wedding ring (while I’m lifting weights), working it into my shoelace knot (as suggested in this Reddit thread) doesn’t feel like a very safe proposition. But there is a…Read more...

We could all use a few extra laughs right now, but our kids, in particular, have had a rough go of it this year. With a long (boring?) summer still stretching out ahead of us, now is a good time to lighten the mood in the home—with some good old-fashioned stand-up comedy.Read more...

My new nightly ritual is to hand-wash the day’s pile of face masks in the sink (hashtag normal things we do in 2020), but if I wasn’t hanging them just so, they wouldn’t be dry the next day—and wearing a wet face mask is a definite no-no if you want it to be remotely effective. Then I remembered the weird, clip-laden…Read more...

Time, space, people, place. As businesses open and events start happening again, I keep thinking about those factors. Spending a lot of time in an enclosed space with lots of other people is not where I want to be on the COVID-19 risk spectrum. And that means no movie theaters, for me, for a long time.Read more...

My boyfriend is a ketchup guy. You know, the kind of guy who puts ketchup on a lot of things, some of which feel a little inappropriate. (It really bugs me when he puts it on mashed potatoes, for instance.) But love means accepting, even celebrating, your partner’s idiosyncrasies, which is why I have a 10-pound…Read more...

We’ve seen a rise in preventable deaths since the start of the pandemic, largely because people are too afraid to go to the doctor.
