If you really want to know...
Commuting doesn’t have to be a waste. There are plenty of ways to get more out of it. If you’re curious, though, this calculator tells you just how much time and money you’ll spend commuting in your lifetime.

New search makes those old photos even easier to find:
One of the best things about Google Photos is that it’s easy to find a photo by searching, but today the service made it even easier to find that specific shot you’re looking for. They’ve also added editing tools for Google’s auto-generated movies that let you use your own music and add photos to them, and more.

The one thing I'd really like to be able to do is search for a specific ALBUM I created. Albums were created for a reason...

Because nobody wants to try that hard in the morning.
I love coffee. I drink it every day. I love trying new brewing methods at home. I’m also lazy when it comes to my daily cup of coffee. I’m not willing to go through the ridiculous steps most coffee connoisseurs suggest for the “perfect” cup. With that in mind here are a few tips I’ve picked up over the years to make a good cup of coffee as conveniently as possible.

Last October I broke down and bought a super-automatic espresso/coffee machine (DeLonghi). Great for lazy people--push button, get coffee. And it's good, too--never bitter or sour. They're pricey, but it's been a good investment for us.

Branch out your blades.
You really only need three or four knives in your kitchen: an 8" or 10" chef’s knife, a 3" or 4" paring knife, a serrated bread knife, and maybe a 7" or 8" Santoku. Those will take care of most of your cutting needs, but once you master those, you might want to supplement your collection with a few choice additions.

Don't forget the basics just because you get to work remotely:
It’s easy to forget manners when you’re all alone. From showing up late to meetings and forgetting simple things like “please” and “thank you,” otherwise polite and well-behaved humans can come off as complete jerks in the absence of face-to-face contact. Isolation is the culprit, but you don’t have to fall prey.

Know your beef:
With so many different cuts of beef—from the 7-bone chuck roast to the tri-tip roast—figuring out the best way to cook a piece of beef can be confusing. This chart from the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association can help.

Is your doctor still stuck in the stone age?
When most people look for a doctor, they try to find someone covered by their insurance, close to their home or work, and perhaps recommended by others. I look for those things too, but what I really want—and have learned is frustratingly difficult to find—is a doctor who uses 21st century tools like, you know, email.

Maximum dip-ability. Maximum deliciousness.
In my mind, tomato soup exists mainly as a condiment for grilled cheese sandwiches, and I like to maximize sandwich dip-ability. Usually I cut mine into strips, but these grilled cheese roll ups from Damn Delicious are an even better option.

Non-toxic and no fuss.
As much as I love plants, I’ve never had many for two reasons: I’m terrible at keeping them alive and I have pets. A lot of plants are either toxic to my cats or they just require too much maintenance. Recently, though, I vowed to finally bring some greenery into my space without poisoning my pets. Here are some solid options I found.

These plants are great and all, but my problem is that they're too pet-friendly. The cat that resides in my home will eat these plants so I have to keep them in a bedroom with lots of light with the door closed. I've tried the sprays, home remedies.. Nothing works.

That hidden menu has quite a few nifty features.
Google introduced a sweet hidden menu in Android Marshmallow called the System UI Tuner. It packs a ton of neat little tweaks like hiding status bar icons or showing your battery percentage. Here’s how to turn it on, and what you can do with it.

worked on my nexus devices too, until I installed N. And it is gone :-( (not the UI tuner but the demo mode (which I really liked)).

Major financial decisions are personal ones, and can't be summed up with black and white generic rules. 
After saving up for a long time, I recently bought a home, which caught some of my friends off guard. “I thought you were anti-homeownership,” they said because I think renting is underrated. Even as a homeowner, I still think renting is underrated. That doesn’t mean buying is a bad decision. The rent vs. buy debate is just silly overall. It ignores the enormous grey area that exists between the two options.

"Alexa, tell Kodi to play Mad Max."
Kodi is a fantastic little media center. The Amazon Echo is a surprisingly excellent voice control device. Jam those two things together and you have a pretty great way to control your movies. How-To Geek shows you how to set it up.
