Walmart fires back at Amazon with new direct-to-fridge service


Walmart is testing direct-to-fridge delivery, a service that taps Amazon’s newest acquisition, Whole Foods, in bringing groceries not only to your house, but your fridge itself. Walmart announced last Friday it would be testing the service on a few customers in Silicon Valley. The company will also be partnering with smart lock and home accessory maker, August Home, giving it access to our most intimate places (yes, that includes our fridge). How does this work? Walmart aims to get the order straight to your fridge using a one-time password provided by August Home. This allows the delivery person to enter…

Sharing is caring: Half of all GoFundMe donations are for medical bills


Social media gets a bad rap for distracting teens and inciting political trolling, but it can also be an immense tool for compassion. A study this summer pointed out that over half of the money raised on GoFundMe was for medical expenses. If you’re on social media arguing about Obamacare, Trumpcare, or whatever Bernie is talking about, consider that we’ve donated over a billion dollars directly to individuals in need, and that’s just on one website. When a hotdog vendor was accosted by police, for not having a license to vend, it seemed legit – until you saw the video…

Why bootstrapping your startup is usually the best option


There’s a gross misconception that shapes today’s startup landscape: you have to raise money in order to successfully launch a scale a company. It makes sense that young entrepreneurs would live and die by this notion, because some of the most successful startup stories of all time begin with a dramatic investor pitch. Additionally, many young entrepreneurs with game-changing ideas enter the arena with low bank accounts that seemingly cannot support all of the operating costs necessary to developing a product and starting a company from scratch. All new entrepreneurs are faced with two choices early on: follow the well-trodden,…

The iPhone 8 retakes ‘best camera’ crown from Android, says DxO


The iPhone may have sparked the mobile photography revolution, but Android devices have matched or surpassed Apple’s offering for several years now – at least according to metrics like DxOMark’s intensive camera testing. Now Apple’s fighting back. The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus surpass Android scores for the first time in a few years, and the iPhone X will almost certainly be better. The iPhone 8 scored a 92 on DxOMark, while the iPhone 8 Plus scored a remarkable 94, easily taking the crown for best score on the camera reference publication. The Google Pixel and HTC U11 are…

Apple TV 4K can’t actually download 4K video from iTunes


Apple’s 4K TV has launched to a wealth of positive reviews, but it turns out the 4K experience comes with some odd fine print. For example: You can’t actually download 4K movies from iTunes, only stream them. MacRumors spotted the quirk in an Apple Support document. Customers can download HD movies – and even some HDR movies in HD resolutions – but 4K is only available in streaming. That’s a pain if you ever want to watch a movie without an internet connection – say, if your network goes down. More likely, it will frustrate people (like yours truly) who…

How an out-of-body VR experience changed my views on dying


Does the thought of dying absolutely terrify you? If so, you might suffer from a condition known as ‘Existential Death Anxiety’, a disorder Dutch experimental designer, Frank Kolkman wants to treat with Outrespectre – a proposed medical device supposedly capable of simulating out-of-body experiences. Intrigued, I contacted Frank to find out more and was invited to try his creation during the first ever human experiment this week in Amsterdam. My initial expectations were based purely on the advertising: a picture of Frank wearing a VR headset. I therefore expected the experiment to involve wearing a (not that impressive) VR headset…

The opioid epidemic: finding alternative solutions through natural products


“How did we get here?” That seems to be the automatic first response from anyone coming to realization about the depths of this country’s opioid epidemic. This summer has been eye-opening for people who don’t live in areas typically riddled with overdose cases. But the mounting death tolls sweeping large cities and small communities as a result of crippling abuse of heroin, fentanyl, and prescription painkillers have made it impossible for anyone, even those geographically removed from the crisis, to look away. Drug use in and of itself is not shocking; but for too long we’ve all found comfort in…

The ultimate beginner’s guide to trading online


Online trading gives you an opportunity be your own boss, set your work hours, work from home (or the beach), and make as much money as you want without the artificial cap placed on salaries.
