One of the best explanations of the mess that is tech patent law in the USA that I've yet seen. Watch it.

This could be one of the saddest things I've ever seen: candied bacon turned to carbon. I cried for a while after encountering it, and a little more after trying to eat it. And no, I didn't cook it.

I've been wondering why my range hood / vent fan wasn't working. It just hummed as if the motor was stuck.

Flash forward one week, and after pulling apart all of the duct work above the fan I found the beginnings of a bird's nest. Oh, and a lot of foul odor from the dead bird responsible for that nest.

Thanks warmer weather and dead bird. Now I get to learn about the wonders of HVAC foil tape.

I'm going to say that this article makes me worry just a little bit less about SSD lifetime durability, but just a little bit less.
I never thought this whole tech journalism gig would turn me into a mass murderer. Yet here I am, with the blood of six SSDs on my hands, and that's not even the half of it. You see, these were not crimes of passion or rage, nor were they products of accident. More than 18 months ago, ...

I really like bacon, but this is too much.
Listen, not everyone can throw arterial caution to the wind, so when someone does go above and beyond the usual bacon intake to prove themselves a hero in the pork-eating world, it must be noted. I...

I will add this to the list of "interesting things that I didn't think about until an article showed up in my feed, yet it makes no difference to daily life".
The letter S appears nowhere in the word "dollar", yet an S with a line through it ($) is unmistakably the dollar sign. But why an S? Why isn't the dollar sign something like a Đ (like the former South Vietnamese đồng, or the totally-not-a-joke-currency Dogecoin)?

Not a big surprise, and likely won't change until after pin and chip becomes widespread in the USA.
The prospect of using our phones in place of wallets is exciting to absent-minded people everywhere, but how well is adoption of mobile payments going in the real world? A recent survey looking at ...

This is a nice introduction into the weird world of Japanese fad food.
From the country with the most interesting Kit-Kat flavors, comes this: a Kit-Kat sandwich you can order at a fast food chain. Sure, why not?

I suppose Apple will tell the banks that they are doing it wrong? 
One of Apple's big selling points -- perhaps the biggest -- for Apple Pay was that this ;sharp new ;payment-processing system it unveiled last September would be all but immune from fraud. "It's easy, it's secure, and it's private," Apple executive Eddy Cue declared ;at the rollout event. ;

why wouldn't they? Apple is bigger than the banks and more influential. Seriously, they closed the loopholes from the consumer to the vendor, now they need to close the bank's own loopholes too?

This could be interesting to know about for future Android projects:
I love Material Design. Google has given guidelines for using it here. If you haven't gone through it I suggest you do because they are more guidelines for a good design than rules for implementing Material Design. If I hadn't, I'd most definitely put raised buttons in persistent areas or in ...

You know it's going to be a tough day getting out of your driveway when the professionals who clear the snow from it can't even get out.

These folks are the ones I now call on whenever I need a ride from DTW into downtown and back again. After trying a couple other services whose drivers were late, didn't show at all, or simply couldn't pick me up downtown, I switched to Diplomat. I'm glad that I did as they have been on time and have gotten me to the airport with time to spare each time I have asked for them. It really is worry free for me to book and use these folks whenever I need transportation.
