    Healthcare in developing nations is a problem just aching for a solution. But it’s a big problem. Chipping away at that predicament is a company called Oscadi.

  • IO Has Recommendations For You

    IO Feels Like A Human Friend Who Gives Great Restaurant Recommendations

  • Snapchat Ads Are Probably Cooler Than Facebook’s, But Still Not Cool

    Snapchat Ads Are Probably Cooler Than Facebook’s, But Still Not Cool

    Prepare for ads on Snapchat, bruh! The company announced on Friday that users will start receiving ads from brands under the Recent Updates section of the app. This is the same portion of the Snapchat inbox where you find Stories, a product that threads together multiple snaps (both video or photo) into one, long snap. The ads are opt-in, in that you don’t actually have to watch them if… Read More

  • Bag Week: The Pad & Quill Attache

    Bag Week: The Pad & Quill Attache

    If life was like Toy Story, and when we fell asleep, all of our inanimate objects suddenly came to life, the Pad & Quill Attache bag would be some super combo of both Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Socially, this bag would be the head honcho. With a beautiful, hand-crafted (and signed by that hand) leather exterior, the Attache laptop bag feels slightly Old-World. It’s a classic… Read More

    PaintZen, With $1.8M In Seed, Is The Uber For House Painting

  • Moto Phones | Fly or Die

    Fly Or Die: Motorola Moto X

    The Moto X (2nd gen) is a welcome addition in a world full of big phones. It’s relatively slim and compact and, just like its predecessor, comes with options for customization for the back panel. But going beyond that, the $500 phone comes unlocked and is spec’d to impress, with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Plus, it… Read More

  • Bag Week: Hex Onyx Origin Laptop Bag

    Bag Week: Hex Onyx Origin Laptop Bag

    You might say, “It’s a bag! How much can someone say about a single bag?” A lot, it turns out, because the Hex Onyx Origin isn’t just any bag. As a staunch backpack fan (not shoulder bags or briefcases), this is the only backpack I’ve ever worn that made me feel like a grownup. It comes in a black canvas color with leather trim, and has a structured design so… Read More

    Flight Attendants Union Sues The FAA Over Use Of Electronics In Flight

    About a year ago, the FAA gloriously adjusted their guidance regarding the use of portable electronic devices during takeoff and landing.

Turns out, the largest… Read More
