Thanks :-) Alan left GMG for the NY Times. I left GMG for How-To Geek, then left them to go freelance...and now I’m writing for a lot of different places, including the Times, PCMag, PopSci, IGN, and here!
Nope, it's a wooden door.
See my response to this concern in the comments below. Kwikset already thought of that--even with the keys sitting on the doorknob, it won't unlock unless the fob or phone is on the outside of the door.
Yeah, but do you actually use both locks at once? I only use the deadbolt because if I use the lock on the knob, I will almost certainly lock myself out of the house without keys. (It’s happened multiple times, lol)
That is definitely the opposite of my experience, but you aren’t alone. Have you tried running the in-app calibration? Sometimes that can help with detection issues. The fob not working is what’s really puzzling to me, because mine works phenomenally well.
This is a totally viable option, and it really depends on the person, their savviness, and what kind of smart home they’re trying to set up. As you say, it takes a bit more work and knowhow, and not everyone has that. I’m pretty tech savvy and even I prefer the easy setup stuff, to be honest—I don’t even have a Z-Wave…
Actually, no! I tested it with the keys near the door on the other side—even tested them with my fob hanging off the doorknob—and it wouldn’t open. It only works if your phone/fob are on the correct side of the door. They really seem to have thought that through.
I always thought Grace would have made a good Peter Parker, to be honest. He always had that nerdy-but-charming thing going on in That ‘70s Show, which in my mind fits the Peter we’ve come to know over the years more than Maguire’s reserved version of Peter. But that’s just me.
Lifehacker post of the year, right here. I’m laughing out loud at “How to Get a New iPhone X If You’re an Arduino” in the middle of an airplane, so thanks for that.
I have the ability to grow facial hair around my mouth, yes, but I shave it every other day or so (that is, I don’t purposely grow my beard).
As I’ve gotten older, my skin has gotten a little better, but I find that I still have acne right around my lipline, and near the corners of my mouth. These have always been the worst spots for me, and I still haven’t really “grown out” of it. I’ve been trying to figure out what the cause could be for such…
I have to somewhat disagree. Ledger’s Joker was undoubtedly a high point, if not the highest point, of the movie. But there’s a lot to love about it. I thought the writing was great, everyone else’s performances were very very good, and the action was loads of fun. Even if someone else had played the Joker, I still…
There are already contradictions to this within Marvel’s own comics, though. If the death of Gwen Stacy was 6 years ago, then the 90s Clone Saga was only one year ago—-since 5 years passed between Ben Reilly getting thrown into that smokestack and his return to New York .
Hmm, okay, I haven’t dug too deep into the movie’s lore, so I’d never heard the term “Deacon”—-I kind of assumed that WAS the Xenomorph, or kind of an early predecessor to the Xenomorph we now know.
I guess by “origin” I don’t mean we see the actual origin, but more learn about the origins through the crew of the movie. That was probably poorly phrased on my part. But it seemed like it was very much about the alien.
Everyone keeps saying that, but I felt like Prometheus had a lot more of the Xenomorph in it than I was led to believe it would. I mean, the movie was kind of the Xenomorph’s origin story...it had a pretty prominent role, didn’t it? Am I crazy?
I bet if you wanted to go through the hassle, you could get at least a hundred for it on eBay instead of recycling it!
Yeah, there’s no reason they couldn’t jump ahead at any point. Plenty of movies do that.
Oh well then WHAT WAS EVEN THE POINT OF HIDING THIS
The only “spoiler” I could possibly ascertain from this is that, because her hair is longer (?), that some time has passed in between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Perhaps a few months of training with Luke on that mountain.
