    Token, with $2.5 million in funding, wants to help you find the perfect gift

    Air Tailor, an ERA-backed startup, offers on-demand clothing alterations

    Almost nobody looks forward to going to the tailor. For one, you have to trek your clothes to and from this place — in metropolitan centers where walking/biking is a primary source of transportation, this becomes compounded.

    Don’t get played by this spammy app like I did

    At my birthday party last week, my friend Ebby walked over and asked a group of us “What’s this Gather app all about?” I instantly felt a bit insecure. Of that particular group of friends, I should have been the one with a ready answer. I’m supposed to know about hot new apps. But Gather was a mystery. The next morning, hungover and recovering from the post-birthday… Read More

    Not gonna lie: I love trivia. I’m a huge fan of any competitive activity, but trivia is definitely in my top three.
