The resale market for diamond engagement rings is booming, as the pandemic causes divorce rates to spike and has become a 'make-or-break' moment for couples

Diamond engagement rings are booming on the resale market. Craig F. Walker/The Boston Globe via Getty Images Both supply and demand for diamond engagement rings has been on the rise during the pandemic, according to resale companies like luxury consignment site The RealReal. Experts say this is because the close-quarters of quarantining has prompted some married couples to call it quits, while pushing others to deepen their commitment. According to an analysis conducted by Legal Templates ...

Polestar built a better car than Tesla; now it needs to build a better brand

Polestar is a startup in an unusual situation. Polestar has the car. It has the executives. Polestar has factories, partners, and distribution channels. It’s set for success in a way most startups are not. And yet, success is not guaranteed. I fear Polestar is missing a critical aspect of electric vehicles and selling against Tesla. I anticipate this will be a crucial point of discussion with Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath at TechCrunch Sessions: Mobility. We’re excited to have Ingenlath join ...

Skoda launches its all-new Enyaq EV — here’s what you need to know

Earlier this week, Volkswagen brand Skoda announced its first all-electric sports utility vehicle, the Enyaq IV. It’s the company’s second EV after its small city car, the  CITIGOe, which is basically just a rebadged VW e-UP! Anyway, it’s an exciting moment for Skoda fans, assuming there are some, as it’s one of the first few non-VW badged cars to make use of the company’s modular electric MEB platform that also underpins the hotly anticipated Volkswagen ID.3. It’s also Skoda’s first EV that’s b...

And we’ve seen orders come and orders go and we’ve seen changes. So we’re always concerned.

The Polestar 2 bests the Tesla Model 3 in drivability and enjoyment

I enjoy driving the Polestar 2 more than the Tesla Model 3. The Polestar 2 is more comfortable, seemingly better built, and has a better infotainment system. In all the traditional automotive metrics, it’s a better car, and yet I find it hard to recommend over the Tesla Model 3. The Polestar 2 often excels where the Tesla Model 3 falters. The fit and finish of the 2 are on par with anything from BMW, Mercedes, or Volvo as Polestar is a close partner to the Swedish luxury brand. However, while th...

A Time-Tested Method for Fighting Outbreaks Is Facing New Challenges in Ohio

The coronavirus is bringing time-tested techniques for controlling the spread of disease front and center. For decades health officials have been using contact tracing to manage outbreaks of TB, measles, STD’s, and Ebola. The practice of reaching out to everyone who comes in contact with a positive case is one of the best tools to beat COVID-19. Contact tracing is nothing new, but it's still worth a refresher about how it works. Say a restaurant employee tests positive for COVID-19. The restaura...
