    Why I’m giving my morning routine makeover.

    It happens without fail every morning, whether it’s during the week or on the weekend: my alarm has gone off. I instinctively and automatically reach for my phone to shut it off (or press snooze, let’s be honest here) and then whether I doze back to sleep or not, I will almost always do a routine […]

    “Serial” and the dubious nature of everything

    Like millions of others, I devoured “This American Life’s” spinoff podcast “Serial,” which debuted last October and still holds a #1 spot on iTunes.

    happy links friday the 13th.

    Quite possibly the most underrated yet most essential piece of tech showcased at CES 2012… is this next-level toilet. Unfortunately, it also reminds me how tech-backwards we are here in America: These are pretty much standard in public restrooms in Tokyo. An alarm clock for news junkies. Specifically, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me fans. Mass […]
