Xbox Lynx body spray will have you smelling like a pro gamer

No, we haven't traveled back in time to April 1. We are, instead, looking to the future of gaming. E3 2019 is coming next week and gaming companies are revving up the marketing engine ahead of the big gaming event. Microsoft will probably take the cake for this partnership with Lynx, known as Axe in other markets. And if that name has you thinking of body sprays and body washes, then you're in for a scented treat with Xbox-branded products of that exact kind.

Karl Lagerfeld dead at 85, here’s the short list of his rudest quotes

Karl Lagerfeld dead at 85, here’s the short list of his rudest quotes

Karl Lagerfeld died this week at age 85 as a master of fashion, creative director, and most importantly artist (and human work of art). Before we go too far into this article, I need to make clear the word "rude" here isn't meant as a negative. It's meant in the sense that Lagerfeld had a way with words, one that was at once startling, sharp, and smart. And it all comes down to sweatpants.

Adobe Creative Cloud users getting ‘color fonts’ free in February

Adobe Creative Cloud users getting ‘color fonts’ free in February

This month the folks at Adobe made a push to bring love to users for Valentine's Day in the form of color fonts. Color fonts are a strange new beast, the likes of which only began to make sense here in this computer-first generation, one in which the letterpress techniques of the past have gone the way of the dodo. They're extinct, and the world is crumbling as a result.

Trust in tech is at its lowest: what needs to be done

Trust in tech is at its lowest: what needs to be done

The tech market is no stranger to controversy, scandal, and criticism. From the IBM days to the recent US elections, the industry has been rocked by one scandal or another. Recently, however, there has been non-stop news on this or that problem with a company, this or that terrible bug, or this or that lawsuit.

Over the years, these have all been chipping away at the trust and confidence that tech companies have built. With all that’s happening around us, it’s only natural to wonder who we can trust and, more importantly, what has to be done to keep our technology-centric world from collapsing under the weight of all these problems.

Why Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram cross-service encryption can’t happen

Why Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram cross-service encryption can’t happen

The proof is in the pudding when it comes to suggested end-to-end encryption of a single messaging system between Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Today a statement from Facebook suggests that they're "working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks." But it's not that sentence that's important - it's the one that comes right after it that tells me what I suspect is probably true.

When will Bitcoin rise again?

When will Bitcoin rise again?

Analysts weighed in this week on signals for the return of Bitcoin to cash money prominence. While it would appear that Bitcoin reached its floor at around $3,500 USD, there's a whole lot of doubt in the market after the most major drop in the history of cryptocurrency - the fall of January 2018. Volume appeared en masse at the drop from $6k to $3k, but not in a way that necessarily suggested Bitcoin-specific accumulation was about to appear out of thin air.

A new pair of shoes from Nike turned the Back to the Future II concept into reality - and beyond. This isn't another iteration of the Michael J Fox MAG shoe. Instead, it's the first "custom show for everyone," so says Michael Donaghu, Nike VP of Innovation.

Dinosaurs, Drones and Infiniti SUVs: A grand Gobi Desert adventure

Dinosaurs, Drones and Infiniti SUVs: A grand Gobi Desert adventure

You don't typically find too many Infiniti cars in the Gobi Desert, mainly just humungous poisonous spiders and feisty scorpions. Oh, and dinosaur fossils, which is why the automaker teamed up with the Hong Kong chapter of The Explorers Club, to revisit and rewrite the rules of exploration - and put the QX50, QX60, and QX80 SUVs through their paces in the process.

Facebook Dating is here, but it’s not for you (yet)

Facebook Dating is here, but it’s not for you (yet)

Back in May, Facebook made an interesting announcement that wasn't entirely unexpected: it wanted to break into the dating space. Today, a few months after that first reveal, Facebook Dating is rolling out to a select number of users as part of an early test. Assuming this test goes well, it may not be long before Facebook Dating goes live for all 2.2 billion Facebook users.

Rocketbook Everlast Review: Tomorrow’s Paper Today

Rocketbook Everlast Review: Tomorrow’s Paper Today

A paper notebook review on a site about gadgets and living the digital lifestyle? Even with the prevalence of smartphones, the Internet, and computers in general, there is a growing “counter-culture” that advocates the benefits of paper or, at the very least, writing things by hand. Rather than take one side to the detriment of the other, the folks at Rocketbook got their heads together to develop solutions, not compromises, that bridge the analog and digital in ways you may never have thought of before. Besides, the Rocketbook Everlast paper isn’t really paper anyway.
