With more than 30,000 locations operating today, the United States Postal Service is still the largest retail network in the US. It's also an embattled institution that's struggling to stay afloat. That's why last year, it enlisted a small design studio to overhaul its look completely. Here's what they came up with.
Brenden Borrellini has been deaf and blind his entire life. He's also been an unstoppable explorer and student. He picked up a camera at an arts center one day on a lark, but the joke soon turned into a serious pursuit with beautiful results. Australia's Open Tropical North brings us this mini documentary on Brendan's…
Love 95% of what goes on on the site, but would prefer it to be less politicized. Everyone loves gadgets! No need to infuse coverage with politics unless it gets at the core of gadgetry (e.g. net neutrality).
More weeding out of people telling me how much they made last month working from home.
More "Green" technologies. For the LifeHacker portion, more interviews on how people actually use the technology to make their lives better, or don't use technology.

I look forward to further cantos regarding the Kindle's progress through Hell, guided by Virgil. I can't wait to learn of the suffering, in the Ninth Circle, of those who abandon one cellular mobile device platform for a different one.
One trick you may or may not have picked up about Gmail is that you can add in periods anywhere in the front part of your address and it makes no difference whatsoever: firstname.lastname@example.org works just the same as email@example.com.

I opened the Facebook chat with my Tinder coach expecting to walk away with a hilarious story. It's a coach for Tinder; how could it be anything but? But one hour, $50, and five extensively researched photos later, I had only one thought: Holy shit, that was depressing.
TSA lines are the very definition of a "necessary evil." Everyone hates the long waits and the awkward disrobing dances as you rid yourself of all your shoes, smartphones, metal, etc. Yet, we're eternally grateful when crazy people with samurai swords don't fly coach. Now, a new breakthrough in nanotechnology could…
Today Nuance is releasing version 13 of its Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice-dictation software. More than just an automated memo-writer, Nuance hopes to make the software into a voice-control-everything feature for PC users. And it comes damn close to pulling it off.
Hear hear! I posit her sheer existence is implied consent to that digital greeting!
On Sunday at noon, I was dressed up, with a flower in my hair, standing in front of a Rousseau painting at the Museum of Modern Art, looking for a well-dressed stranger. I'd been set up on a blind date.
Back during the no-carb diet craze of the early 2000s, I joked that I wanted to try a diet consisting of nothing but carbs and lipids. I would call it the Fatkins Diet. Guess what? I just did exactly that. I ate ice cream, and only ice cream, for four days straight. Yes, it's the world's first Ice Cream Cleanse, and…
The North Korea YouTube account is the country's officially recognized, premier means of reaching Western audiences. It's also utterly insane. But it starts to make a little more sense once you meet the people behind it.
