Senator Bernie Sanders has an ambitious, though imperfect, plan to help slash Earth's skyrocketing carbon emissions. President Donald Trump, meanwhile, appointed a non-climate scientist to the National Security Council who incorrectly claimed Earth's plants are in dire need of more CO2, d...more
Amazon will no longer allow third-party merchants to advertise products claiming to treat or cure the coronavirus, CNBC reports.
Misinformation continues to spread on social media, and it appears the same has occurred on one of the world's most popular e-commerce platforms. The listings target fearful consumers through deceptive language. Sellers describe their cleansers, surgical face masks, and sprays as capable of "killing" the coronavirus and, in some listings, they go as far as name-dropping well-respected agencies such as the World Health Organization and the Centers for Diseas...more
Everyone knows that packing for travel is a pain. I consistently have to sit on my suitcase to get it to close, and it's usually due to one thing: My shoes.
I'm guilty of overpacking in general, but especially when it comes to shoes. I just want some travel shoes that'll go with every outfit, sue me.
But as any pro travel knows, you should probably only bring around two pairs of shoes with you on each trip — counting the ones you wear on the plane, of course.
That's easier said than done, though. It all depends on where you're going. Sometimes, you end up going p...more

"Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!"
The unthinkable has happened: After years of using a bargain bin flip phone, billionaire and famous Apple investor Warren Buffett acquired an iPhone. The Berkshire Hathaway CEO made the stunning admission on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Monday morning, reversing one of his most old-school lifestyle choices.
Specifically, he said he's using an iPhone 11. Buffett indicated he'd been given iPhones before, including from Apple CEO Tim Cook. There's just one crucial bit of context that's missing. Is it an iPhone 11? Or an iPhone 11 Pro or i...more
We're just getting past the buggy roll-out of iOS 13 but, based on leaked images, it looks like iOS 14 is going to shake things up.
A report from 91mobiles shows what it claims to be a video of iOS 14's new multitasking feature in action.
Instead of the one-app-at-a-time slideshow on iOS 13, the feature tiles your open apps, displaying four at a time on your screen. (The phone in the above video is an iPhone 11 Pro Max.)
When you swipe the app down, screen goes darker and it shows the lock above it, it locks and unlocks as you swipe down. Don’t know exactly what it will do,...more
