Fitbit Sense review

The Versa helped Fitbit reverse its fortunes after a long, gradual slide. The company was slow to embrace the smartwatch, and stumbled somewhat out of the gate with the Ionic. But the Versa found a perfect sweet spot that build atop generations of wearable health knowhow, key acquisitions like Pebble and a pricing sweet spot at $200. In fact, other big-name smartwatch makers like Apple and Samsung have since followed suit, offering up more budget-friendly approaches to the category. The moves...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,In an attempt to learn new skills, I started looking at whether typing in Dvorak was 1) Easy to accomplish and 2) Actually better than QWERTY. I found that both points are true, to a certain extent ("certain extent" meaning "negligibly"), and decided to do so. Are there any other roughly-easy-to-learn skills that you suggest picking up (especially for those who have more time due to the quarantine) that don't serve any big purpose, but are fun to have/learn?-Run On Sentenc...
