Whistleblowing is in the news this week: Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates is preparing to testify in front of a Senate panel on May 8th, and CNN reports that she will say she warned the White House about Michael Flynn’s connections with Russia almost three weeks before Flynn was fired.

If you’re afraid of being shot, you’re not alone, and your fears are, unfortunately, justified. Guns kill almost 100 people in America every single day. Even worse, guns and the bullets they fire are not the hyper-precise weapons Hollywood makes them out to be. They’re messy, and they do a lot of damage you can’t see.…
Your Mac is running a little slow these days. It takes forever to boot up. You have to delete something just to download that file attachment from Carla in accounting. Any time you stream a video it seems to lock up for a few seconds. Let’s fix all that.

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…
Last month, we told you not to plant the wildflower seeds that Cheerios is giving away to help “bring back the bees,” because they seemed to include invasive species that could harm your local environment.
