Take a few minutes to make sure your desk isn't hurting more than it's helping:
By now, everyone knows that sitting all day is damaging your body, so it’s important to move around and stay active. But how you sit between those breaks is just as important. Physiotherapist Joanne Gough has a quick video outlining the ideal sitting posture and how to set up your workspace accordingly.

Cats and dogs, living together! ...but it works!
When you buy an Apple product you buy into the ecosystem more than with any other company, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with only what they offer. If you’re a lover of wearables you’d be remiss to overlook Android Wear, even if you’ve chosen iOS as your primary mobile platform.

I agree I have not had a great experience with Android wear. I have serious Bluetooth connectivity issues. I just want it to always work and it does not.

It doesn't take much effort to save money with these apps.
I’m terrible at saving money, I hate studying personal finance, and I tend to have a “carpe diem” mentality when it comes to buying the things I want. Fortunately, a few automated savings apps gave me a stronger hold on my money by doing most of the hard stuff for me.

For some folks these tools will not make sense and that's fine, just move on. For me, it has helped me save a lot of money (something I was not able to do before due to laziness) I use both, acorns is like an experiment for now. The money I save with digit I move to my savings in smartypig every 3months.

You may not have time to learn a martial art, but you can learn the basics of self-preservation.
Every fight has a winner and a loser, and unless you spend some serious time training, there’s a good chance you’ll be the loser at least once. Hopefully, it’ll never happen, but if it does, these techniques will help you roll with the punches and walk away with only a few scrapes and bruises.

I can always remember this fight I had in school. I got busted up pretty bad, but you should have seen the other guy! Not a mark on him. :-)

To be fair, to most tech-savvy folks, few of these would take a full afternoon:
A substantial PC upgrade, or even a better workspace, doesn’t have to be a huge project that drains your time and energy. If you can order the parts, there are several worthwhile improvements you can make that’ll pay off big when it’s time to work (or play). Here are some of them.

What if workout food didn't all have to be sticky sweet?
Food for when you’re exercising is a whole product category these days. There are sticky sweet energy gels (every marathoner’s frenemy), plus a variety of bars and chews that are pretty much all expensive and taste terrible. The book Feed Zone Portables has an alternative: homemade, portable food that has the nutrition you need, while tasting great.

A few minutes can make all the difference!
Sitting in front of a screen all day can wreak havoc on the spine. Our posture changes, and that can cause some serious long-term damage. Dr. Eric Goodman, creator of the Foundation Training program, offers these three no-equipment exercises to help.

It's always easier to be confident when you're Star-Lord.
In May of 2014, I wore my first costume to a convention. It was a simple Doctor Krieger from Archer. Stepping into the shoes of a character I liked just seemed like a fun way to spend the weekend. Instead, it turned into an exploration of what it means to be confident.

I've noticed this with cosplay as well. Things that I would find to be uncomfortably revealing in regular life (even, like, a tight pair of short shorts) I can wear on a convention floor happily.

What would you say have been some of your biggest career mistakes?

They're different, but both very popular. Let's put them to the test:
When you really need to keep your files safe and secure, you need encryption. We’ve covered the basics before, and even rounded up your favorite encryption tools, but today we’re putting two of the most popular options for Windows head to head to see which one is the best at keeping your sensitive data safe.

Seriously, we can all see through it--it's about time for managers to stop:
The “sandwich” method of feedback, where you squish criticism between compliments to smooth it over, is played out and everyone knows it. Most of us cringe when we hear someone suggest it, and even when it works, it’s obvious. Adam Grant, author and professor, says it’s time to just give it up, and we agree.

Exactly right. I once had a boss who, in his monthly meetings with me, would always save "issues" or "constructive feedback" until the very end. That is mostly what I remembered from our meetings...

For better or for worse, this change is coming:
If you’ve ever lost a form you’re filling out because the Backspace key sends you to the previous page, get ready to be happy. In the newest Canary builds of Chrome, Google has added the ability to stop using the Backspace key as a Back browser button.

This is one of the changes safari made. It is very frustrating when that's what you are expecting to happen. And the way it is right now it ignores the back page when you are in a text box. What's next? Space bar no longer scrolls?
