Why your phone’s notifications are the way they are

Few inventions affected our relationship with technology as much as push notifications have. Before modern-day notifications, most of us felt in charge of deciding when we want to use and interact with technology, but now, technology is largely making that decision for us. It’s easy to blame technology, but it’s important to note that it isn’t technology at the heart of the problem—it’s our own inability to handle it. After all, not all notifications are created equal. And in order to better und...

Original Content podcast: Netflix’s ‘Roma’ might be the best movie of the year

A number of critics have declared that “Roma” is the best movie of the year. Naturally, we had to weigh in on the latest episode of the Original Content podcast. Director Alfonso Cuarón’s recent (and excellent) films were all fantasy and science fiction films (“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” “Children of Men” and “Gravity”), but with “Roma,” he returns to the realist mode of his breakthrough “Y Tu Mamá También.” Here, Cuarón tells the story of his childhood in Mexico City — but throu...

5 unicorns that will probably go public in 2019 (besides Uber and Lyft)

There’s been plenty of fanfare surrounding Uber and Lyft’s initial public offerings — slated for early 2019 — since the two companies filed confidential IPO paperwork with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in early December.

Google loves a good Easter egg, and with the holiday season in full swing, the search giant resurrected a fun little surprise that you may remember from previous years.

Researchers Show Parachutes Don't Work, But There's A Catch

Reader Beeftopia shares a report: Research published in a major medical journal concludes that a parachute is no more effective than an empty backpack at protecting you from harm if you have to jump from an aircraft. But before you leap to any rash conclusions, you had better hear the whole story. The gold standard for medical research is a study that randomly assigns volunteers to try an intervention or to go without one and be part of a control group. For some reason, nobody has ever done a ra...

In fact, it’s an immensely difficult business with tough unit economics, regulatory challenges on a city-by-cit...
