The Coolest Beauty Trends From Coachella You'll Want to Wear Year-Round

Notes from the Samsung Galaxy Fold: day one

More like day 1.5, honestly. I spent most of yesterday sick in bed, with fever dreams of flexible displays. This morning, however, I’m already at the airport. Out if the the frying pan and into the fire, as it were. Point is, after spending an hour or so with the phone yesterday, I now find myself with the Galaxy Fold in hand (or hands, as the case may be). I’ll be using the foldable as my day to day phone as I travel to California for our robotics event. I’ll have a full review for you in a few...

7 Dreamy Roll-On Fragrances To Stash In Your Belt Bag This Spring

Unlike your tiny travel shampoo or your TSA-safe micro-tube of toothpaste, there's something low-key sexy about a rollerball perfume. More than just a carry-on essential (because no one is getting their full-sized bottle of Gucci Bloom through airport security), you can slip a skinny glass bottle into the side pocket of any purse for an instant refresh when you're standing at the crosswalk on a warm morning, or trying to shake off that stale airplane feeling before heading straight from hotel ...

ACLU Asks CBP Why Its Threatening US Citizens With Arrest For Refusing Invasive Device Searches (techdirt)

My phone and laptop are property of my employer and contain unreleased software and proprietary information. I’ve signed a non-disclosure agreement promising not to give anyone access.

The HBO comic, responding to multiple allegations that the former vice president made women feel uncomfortable with his groping and close contact, made light of their experiences. “Biden is still at large.

The new machines can create 3D images of a bag’s contents and automatically detect ...
