I live in Portland, Oregon, a city in which notifying your host of your eating restrictions is just good manners. Maybe you too have friends who are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free. Or lactose-intolerant, paleo, or perhaps adhering to my toddler’s diet, which is best described as “pepperoni.” In this fraught environment, pizza has saved our …

It was a solid laptop in 2017. It was a solid laptop in 2018. It’s a solid laptop in 2019.

It’s a famous origin story, and one you probably already know. The hot app at SXSW in 2007 was Twitter. Even WIRED was on board. So it’s only fitting that SXSW is where the company is unveiling a new camera feature. Starting today and rolling out over the next week or so, users of the …

The fitness tracker maker manages to regularly repackage its technology into a slightly differentiated version of the same wristband or smartwatch, slap a new name on it, and ship something that’s made for the masses.
