My friend Emily in Los Angeles shared with me that her stepsister has gone missing. I offered to help spread the word, in hopes that perhaps one of our readers in Las Vegas (or elsewhere) has seen Alexa Morgenroth.

She had a zest for life and heroin stole it from her and her family. She left rehab on April 1st and has not been seen since. The girl she left rehab with is no longer alive."

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady. You could buy a smartphone attachment for a conventional camera tripod, but who wants to carry that kind of gear everywhere they […]
The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots. But anyone living in the vast swaths of the country that don’t have guaranteed high-speed internet, broadcast TV is a perfectly valid (and 100% free) way […]
When Apple revealed the new MacBook in 2016, one of the biggest issues raised with the notebook’s new design (aside from ire over the slew of new adapters you’d inevitably have to buy) was the removal of one of its most beloved proprietary features, the magnetic charging cable.
