The Super Bowl is upon us, and that means it’s time for another team to see if they can beat the New England Patriots. This year, it’s the Los Angeles Rams. If you don’t care about either of those teams, we’ve included two fluffier alternatives. Regardless of which show tickles your fancy, it’s sometimes tough …

There was that time I dreamed up a giant Motorola smartwatch with a kickstand, and the time Justin Bieber pitched me on a new …

Facebook is onto us. It’s onto me, anyway. I am merely one anecdata point among billions, but I’m sure I’m not the only Facebook user who has found herself shying away from the very public, often performative, and even tiring habit of posting regular updates to Facebook and Instagram.
