We asked for your most bizarre, awkward wrong number calls and text messages and, boy, did you deliver. These tales of “whoa” involve everything from clueless callers to tactless texters, playful responses to toilet phones, and everything in between.
Using a password manager is basically internet security 101 these days, but that doesn’t make them any less intimidating. If you’ve never used a password manager, they’re annoying, cumbersome to use, and baffling at a glance. 1Password is one of the easiest to use options around, but that doesn’t mean you don’t some…
The human nose can detect more than one trillion distinct scents, but it’s not so great at picking up your own odors. There’s always a chance you reek something foul and just don’t realize it. If that’s a fear of yours, here’s how you can find out for sure.

Microsoft is doing their best to drum up excitement for the relatively mundane experience of updating Windows. Today’s release—the Creators Update—is a little more fun than the usual system tweaks, though. Is it worth its cheerful name? Maybe, if you’re a fan of MS Paint.
How far would you go to hack yourself? Would you spend thousands of dollars across decades to maximize your health and performance? That’s what Dave Asprey did. He’s the Bulletproof Exec, and you might know him as the guy who suggests you put butter in your coffee. There’s a lot more to it than butter though.
Apple recently added Night Shift to macOS, which changes the color temperature of your screen based on the time of day in the hopes that it’ll help you sleep better. Before the launch of Night Shift, f.lux was the go-to tool for doing this. Let’s see how they compare.
