‘South Park’s’ Trey Parker Adds Homes in New York, Los Angeles

Property-collecting “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker has substantially beefed up his already prodigious residential property portfolio with multimillion-dollar purchases in both Los Angeles and New York City. Just after the first of the year, the often provocative and occasionally shocking Tony Award-winning “Book of Mormon” co-creator surreptitiously splashed out $3.1 million in an off-market deal […]

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is an ambitious but flawed first attempt at what could be the future of smartphones

Samsung's Galaxy Fold proves that foldable phones are more than just a gimmick; it offers a large, beautiful screen that fits in your pocket with battery life that lasts for days. But it's far from being perfect, making it hard to justify the nearly $2,000 price tag. Screen malfunctions aside, the crease is still very noticeable and there are some aspects of its design that require you to trade-off some convenience for that extra screen real estate. Still, it's an ambitious first look at where...

The most beautiful Apple stores in the United States (AAPL)

To understand   Apple's   global retail footprint, it helps to see it for yourself. We've compiled a list of the most beautiful   Apple stores   in the United States. Apple has more than 500 stores around the world, with 271 of those stores in the United States alone.

Apple's physical retail stores have only been around since 2001, but in many ways they've come to represent Apple's own products:...

Here's a look inside credit card startup Brex's new member-only San Francisco lounge

Credit card startup Brex has opened a members-only lounge in San Francisco's South Park district to give cardholders a place to gather — whether that be to work, hold meetings, or socialize.  Dubbed the "Oval Room," the space feels like a homier version of a WeWork, with sectional couches instead of communal work tables. It's also far smaller than a typical co-working space, as it's located above of what used to be a neighborhood cafe.  "It's not about exclusivity," Brex co-founder Henrique Du...

6 Good Reasons to Laugh More

It’s been 40 years since Norman Cousins published his classic An Anatomy of an Illness, in which he documents curing himself with a high dose of vitamin C and a continuous stream of humorous films. Since then research has further established the medicinal benefits of laughter, helping everything from Alzheimer’s disease and allergies to backaches and muscle cramping. Following one of his studies on the benefits of laughter, Dr. Michael Miller said he envisioned a time when physicians might rec...

Andreessen Horowitz is making the move to San Francisco at long last

One of the last top-tier venture firms to resist coming to San Francisco has apparently decided that it’s time to make the move. According to a source familiar with the thinking of Andreessen Horowitz, the firm is opening up a San Francisco office later this year. The WSJ had reported on Friday that the firm has signed a leasing agreement to move into 180 Townsend Street in the city’s China Basin neighborhood, not far from where the San Francisco Giants play baseball. (The park was known until J...

The Silicon Valley exodus continues

For a long time, it was the norm for founders to haul their hardware to the 3000 block of Sand Hill Road, where the venture capitalists of “Silicon Valley” would be awaiting their pitches. Today, many of the investors that touted the exclusivity of “The Valley” have moved north to San Francisco, where they have better access to top entrepreneurs. Y Combinator, a Silicon Valley institution and to many the lifeblood of the startups and venture capital ecosystem, is the latest to pack up shop. Y...

History of Canada's BeaverTail donut

The sweet aroma as you approach the little red-roofed chalet signals fresh pastries straight ahead. But these aren’t just any baked goods. They’re a giant, deep-fried delicacy called BeaverTails, and they’re as symbolically Canadian as the buck-toothed rodent they’re named after. They’re not real beaver tails, of course (although a smaller number of people eat those as well). This BeaverTail is a ball of whole-wheat dough that’s hand-stretched into a long, flat oval — the same shape as its na...

Best TV shows set in every state

Forget the airplane , the automobile, and the iPhone. The greatest American invention in history is hands down the television. Not only has it given us a way to see the world without leaving our living room, but it was also an electronic babysitter long before the tablet and gave families something to do at dinner other than talk to each other. Over the 70-plus years TV has been around we’ve seen thousands of shows, set all kinds of places around our great land. We took a look through TV histo...

These are the 12 weirdest Oscar moments

The weirdest thing to ever happen on stage at the Academy Awards was a huge mistake, and it’s hard to imagine it will ever be topped. What could be bigger, after all, than announcing the wrong movie as the winner of the Oscar for best picture? Boo-boos don’t get any bigger than that, and the screams and hollers that erupted in 2017 inside the Kodak Theatre and homes around the world were entirely justified. The cast and creators of “La La Land” got to enjoy their Oscar for roughly 2 minutes and ...

Here’s why Amazon’s Super Bowl ad won’t trigger Alexa

South Park famously annoyed the world by triggering Echo and Google Home devices with familiar wake words. When Amazon’s at the wheel, however, the company is able to ensure that Alexa stays quiet, using a method called acoustic fingerprinting. In the lead of to the Super Bowl, the company’s offered up a (relatively) easy to understand breakdown of why its celebrity-laden ads won’t wake up Alexa during the big game. With its own ads, the company ads a fingerprint of the audio, which is store...

Netflix and films like ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ are fueling an animation renaissance

Animation is undergoing a big Hollywood renaissance. It’s more aggressively becoming what it’s always fundamentally been: art. In the feature film arena, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” has opened new vistas for how a big studio cartoon can look and feel, and dominated its category in virtually every contest of the current awards season so far. Meanwhile streaming services such as Netflix are giving animators unprecedented new creative freedoms and job opportunities. “We typically are most i...

Michael DeForge's 'Brat' Challenges the Act of Reading Comics

None Sometimes I think I'm reading Michael DeForge the wrong way. His Instagram strip, Leaving Richard's Valley, is coming out as a book collection from Drawn & Quarterly soon, but I'm catching up on Brat, released last fall from Koyama Press. It's a story of an aging celebrity, a former juvenile delinquent renowned for acts of vandalism as art installations. She's still appreciated by her now middle-aged followers. But I'm not sure "story" is the best word to describe these graphic narratives....

How Juul made vaping viral to become worth a dirty $38 billion

A Juul is not a cigarette. It’s much easier than that. Through devilishly slick product design I’ll discuss here, the startup has massively lowered the barrier to getting hooked on nicotine. Juul has dismantled every deterrent to taking a puff. The result is both a new $38 billion valuation thanks to a $12.8 billion investment from Marlboro Cigarettes-maker Altria this week, and an explosion in popularity of vaping amongst teenagers and the rest of the population. Game recognize game, and Al...
