Tech doesn’t work with children and animals

It's a tale as old as time: Kids and animals don't mix with tech. Whether it's little Billy turning your new flatscreen on and off until it burns out or Rover chewing through another pair of fancy headphones, you'd think we'd know better by now that…

Talladega Xfinity NASCAR Race Ends In Chaotic Overtime ‘Dega-Style Crash


‘Dega! It’s legendary for a reason, and much of that reason is the insanity of restrictor plate racing. Everyone’s as aggressive as possible to finish well at one of NASCAR’s most famous tracks, which often leads to chaos.

Keep White Sneakers White With All-Purpose Cleaner and Regular Cleanings

Keep White Sneakers White With All-Purpose Cleaner and Regular Cleanings

There are a few ways to try and revitalize dirty sneakers, but the secret to keeping white sneakers white is regular cleanings and a typical household cleaner you already have.

If you’re determined to keep your fancy white shoes as bright and clean as possible, Jolie Kerr at Racked suggests you reach for a typical all-purpose cleaner like Fantastik or Formula 409. Use paper towels, a sponge, and a toothbrush to really get in there and remove all the dirt and scuffs. If you have a really stubborn stain, Kerr recommends using a Magic Eraser. You probably already have this stuff around the house, so that’s a plus, but the downside is that you have to clean your shoes constantly. Try to clean your shoes once every few wears, or at least once a week, and you’ll be able to keep them from getting dirty and yellowing. And don’t forget the white laces! Toss them in a mesh laundry bag, give them a wash, and let them air dry so they don’t shrink.

US surveillance court didn’t reject a single spy order last year

Other for iPhone Quickly Sends Canned Messages to One Other Person

Other for iPhone Quickly Sends Canned Messages to One Other Person

iPhone: If you have one person you tend to message with a lot, Other is a very simple little app that makes sending a canned message to them a ton easier.

Other is kind of like a launcher for messaging a single person. You can set it up with predefined messages, so it’s super easy to instantly send a message through the normal Messages app to them. If you have a iPhone 6s, you can even send those messages from a 3D Touch shortcut on the home screen. There’s also a share extension so you can easily send something like a URL in Safari to that person with just a couple taps. If you tend to send the same type of message to one person a lot, like that you’re on your way home, stuck in traffic, or whatever else, Other makes it just a little bit easier.

The show will also air on C-SPAN 1 on TV if you have cable. Most major television news networks will also have live coverage of the event if you only care about picking out the highlights.
