Google Pixel 5 is more proof the iPhone 12 will eat everyone's lunch

Apple has the best budget phone on the market. I've been saying it for a while — and I've been ridiculed for it — but it's true. In fact, it probably has the best-priced option for every budget. 

I know it sounds preposterous. After all, the iPhone was always *the* premium phone, the phone for people who don't really care about paying a couple hundred dollars extra to be a part of Apple's ecosystem of services. On the other side of the fence you had Android phones, which offered nearly...

Pinterest is trying to make this Halloween more culturally sensitive

There's no doubt Halloween will look different this year — but maybe not only for the reason you think. 

This Halloween, Pinterest is adding new measures (in addition to its existing ban on the advertisement of "culturally inappropriate" costumes) to cut down on the number of insensitive costume ideas on the site. 

Cultural appropriation — the adoption of a culture you don't belong to through ways of dress, speech, or expression — is routinely a problem on Halloween, as people...

Apple TV+'s 'Ted Lasso' is the ray of sunshine you need in your life

In the second episode of his eponymous Apple TV+ series, Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) brings his new boss a box of cookies. It's a tiny gesture (literally, since the box is barely bigger than a Twinkie), and one that the deeply skeptical Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) declines at first. But she's curious, so she tries one. Then another. And another. Turns out they're incredible. 

By the middle of the episode, "Biscuits With the Boss" has become an established daily ritual, a regular dose of...

Trump Is Essentially Slapping His Name on Food Aid Boxes Now

If you’re a family receiving food aid from the federal government, you’re going to start getting a “gift” along with it pretty soon: a letter signed by President Donald Trump taking credit for the program. 

Since May, the Department of Agriculture has distributed more than 100 million boxes of food through its Farmers to Families Food Program, as part of coronavirus assistance efforts. Last week, the Agriculture department began requiring that these boxes of food come with a letter...

You can get a refurbished Sonos Playbar for $120 off at Best Buy

The Sonos Playbar soundbar isn’t as new as the Beam (by a long shot, it was released in 2013), but it’s a more powerful option. If you want to pick one up, Best Buy has refurbished models for $379, which is drastically cheaper than Sonos’ own $499 refurbished price. The soundbar debuted for $699 and Sonos products don’t usually drop in price this much.

The Sonos Playbar houses six mid-woofers and three tweeters. We didn’t think it met the bar in terms of powerful sound with its...
