(image)

The question of whether or not you can damage a car that asks for premium gas by using regular gas is one that never seems to die.

(image)

There’s no arguing that pie is the most noble form any summer fruit can assume, but there are times I want a fruity dessert that doesn’t require the heating of my oven (or kitchen). In such moments, I turn (once again) to booze, and make some stupid-easy but still sophisticated-tasting wine-soaked fruit.

Asus Zephyrus Review: Has the Age of Powerful and Convenient Gaming Laptops Finally Arrived?

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 14:49:00 GMT

(image)

A couple of weeks ago I was braving the big crowds of E3 to meet with the Nvidia team, and while I was ostensibly there to check out Destiny 2 on a PC, what I really wanted to know was what the hell Max-Q Design was. Nvidia announced its new design philosophy back in May, and I’d spent the intervening weeks unable to…

Our Summer Book Recommendations Are Perfect For Staying Inside

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 20:00:00 GMT

(image)

The worst place for a beach read is the beach. You’re surrounded by screaming kids and seagulls. Sand gets in the pages, sun bakes your skin and makes your iPad unreadable. And you will absolutely get hit in the glasses with a volleyball. Instead, crank the air conditioning, put on a sweater, and try an indoorsy…

Preserved Lemons Are Your New Favorite Condiment 

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 19:30:00 GMT

(image)

I like to divide my life into two eras: the time before I knew about preserved lemons and the time after I knew about preserved lemons. Unlike fresh lemon zest or juice, these funky little wedges add a bit of umami along with acidic brightness.

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 19:00:00 GMT

Online shopping is on the rise—it’s fast and ships directly to your doorstep, sometimes overnight. But with online shopping, you miss the experience of going into a store and picking up items.

For Faster Touch-Typing, Put a Bump on Your Keyboard 

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 18:30:00 GMT

(image)

I’ve got a problem with my MacBook’s poorly designed keyboard, one I know Apple isn’t going to solve for me. On older MacBook keyboards, the arrow keys were identical in size, with two empty spaces to the left and right of the top arrow key that provided a tactile reference point and clear delineator between full-size…

Buying clothes in a store—once the only way to shop—now seems almost antiquated. Why limit yourself to merely one designer, or even all the options available in a mall, when you have the infinite variety of the internet to choose from? But despite the convenience and selection of online shopping, I still prefer to…

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 13:00:00 GMT

(image)

Fresh figs are luxury items: they’re so delicious, so expensive (in my neck of the woods, Peapod.com is selling them for $1.17 a piece) and so tragically short-lived. All too often, in my experience (Is it me? My refrigerator?) after I’ve decided yes, I will plop down the cash for a tiny basket of these purply…

The Amazon Echo Show Is the Best Dumb Smart Machine in My Home

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 16:00:00 GMT

(image)

The first night the Amazon Echo Show was in my bedroom I had to carefully lay it face down on my nightstand. The display, which was cycling through my upcoming meetings, most recent news, and the weather, was simply too bright. It was like having a little super informative sun shining in my face.
