Review: iPad Air, smooth criminal –

The 2020 iPad Air comes at an interesting time in Apple’s release cycle. The iPad Pro is still strong from a specs perspective but is now technically a half generation or so behind in CPU. The new pro models won’t arrive for (theoretical) months. So what you end up with is a device that shares […] → Read More

Review: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, two gems, one jewel –

There’s an odd tension in only being able to review half of the new iPhone lineup. Though this review is focused on breaking down the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, we all know that the iPhone mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max are sitting out there in the wings. Fortunately, we can extrapolate […] → Read More

Crypto-driven marketplace Zora raises $2M to build a sustainable creator economy –

Dee Goens and Jacob Horne have both the exact and precisely opposite background that you’d expect to see from two people building a way for creators to build a sustainable economy for their followers to participate in.

The Otto Wilde Grill delivers the drama of delicious restaurant steak at home –

Like many folks this year, I have been cooking a lot. Though I’ve always loved food and have had a deep and abiding interest for the art of cooking, I’ve definitely pushed myself to learn how to do a lot of things from scratch in the kitchen this year. From cooking a decent CTM to […] → Read More

The 2019 TechCrunch Include Report –

It’s no secret that the tech industry is historically white, straight and male. Despite promises to examine and reform hiring practices so that tech companies big and small better reflect the world we all live in, diversity reports chart a different path: Black, brown, female and LGBTQIA+ folks aren’t getting their representative seats at the […] → Read More

TikTok’s big UnitedMasters deal is the way forward for creators looking to secure their bag –

TikTok is right in the jaws of a thorny situation with the U.S. government regarding its ownership, but it’s sending a clear message today that it is not sitting on its heels with big deals.

Vicarious mimics another person’s Twitter feed using lists, but it violates Twitter rules –

That Vicariously app you might have seen pop up in your twitter feed via a little viral growth hacking has run aground on Twitter’s automation rules. We reached out about it after it started spamming my feed with ‘so and so has added you to a list’ notifications and Twitter says that the app is […] → Read More

The Midnight is the new synth pop you need in your life, here’s the world premiere of their new video –

If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen me waxing poetic about The Midnight, an LA-based synthwave band that has been putting out modern nostalgia for the 80’s set since 2012.

How Apple reinvented the cursor for iPad –

Even though Apple did not invent the mouse pointer, history has cemented its place in dragging it out of obscurity and into mainstream use. Its everyday utility, pioneered at Xerox Parc and later combined with a bit of iconic* work from Susan Kare at Apple, has made the pointer our avatar in digital space for […] → Read More

Review: Apple’s cheep and cheerful iPhone SE –

It’s admittedly difficult to have a comparative conversation about the iPhone SE. This device isn’t really in the same neighborhood as the iPhone 11, even though it’s furnished with the same plush carpeting and fluffy armchairs. The iPhone SE is a value offering. Even though I will use comparatives throughout this piece to help put […] → Read More
