I'm afraid it could be used against us later.  Would cops still need warrants for DNA testing?  Would insurance companies be able to access that information to determine what we should pay?

Great guide here.  I love that Wirecutter tests electronics with multiple price points.  I'm waiting to see what happens with Black Friday this year, but the LG C8 OLED from this guide looks nice.

These look fun and I have to agree with the sentiment.  I've noticed that when I share a photo of Mr. Whiskers it gets tons of likes and comments about how cute he is.  On the other hand, when I share my photo, I get comments asking for more cat... See more

I needed to read this as I've followed  the "battery memory" rule since I got my first laptop.  I had no idea that things have changed since then.

I'm so glad you shared this article.  I have a terrible time falling asleep.  I tried taking over-the-counter sleeping pills, but still feel so drowsy the next morning.  Hopefully some of these apps will help.

Quite an informative article and I agree with you that Kindle Unlimited may not be value for money for some people. I am considering trying out the 30-day trial, just to have a feel of things. For how long have you been subscribed to this... See more

Don't cancel too early.  Although the books you've selected will remain on your device until the time period is up, you'll be unable to download additional books under the  program.

The one reason I keep coming back to Apple for laptops is because I have yet to ever really have to worry about malware on my computer. iOS seems to be the best protection out there.

Really?  They have been hit hard by malware these past few years.  Now experts recommend protecting them as well due to the sudden proliferation of ransomware and trojans.  Maybe it's just another way to make money though.

Yeah, I'm an iPhone user too, but I've played around with a friends Pixel and it's cool.  I'm surprised they haven't leaked the new prices yet.   Any guesses?

I have found a lot of great free ebooks on freebieshark and freestufftimes.  Amazon Prime subscribers can borrow several books each month for free too.  There's lots of fantastic books to pick from.

I'm a dedicated iPhone user, but it's interesting to see how Google has created product tiers depending on budget.  It reminds me of Amazon's move to produce tablets in the same manner.  I wonder how it will work out.

I think only professional photographers use more than their smartphones to take photos now.  You don't need an expensive camera with a special lens to take a selfie.

My cousin loves vintage records, so I like to give them to her as gifts.  This year I think I'll get her a newer turntable so she doesn't have to worry about adding too much wear and tear on her vintage model. Thanks for the list.

What's sad is that this article was written in 2016, but it's still very much relevant today because protections have yet to improve.  I'm glad to learn I'm not the only one without those "golden ears".

I purchased a GoPro when it first came out and am looking to upgrade soon.  You're right, the videos shot with this one look amazing!

It seems so ridiculous that Apple failed to account for this issue.  Remember when Apple used to create real innovative products?  Now even LG is charging faster.

I find Shazam useful and I'm not surprised Apple bought it since it's already integrated into many of their programs.  What do you think about the purchase price?  Shazam's valuation was quite a bit higher.  Did Apple snag a deal?

I love the look, but this seems like a bad PR idea on their part.  It looks similar to a book.  A book has lots of paper made from trees.  I think the design will make some users associate printing with killing trees which will encourage users... See more

I think it's important to run a price check on these.  If you won't save enough in gas to justify the high price it's just not worth it.  There are other ways to protect the environment.

I don't know that it was disappointing exactly.  I think Apple would be smart to wait on those big events since people expect the moon each time.  Wait until you have something big to unveil before calling everyone to come.  Doesn't have to be a... See more

I think smart devices such as these are fun, but the novelty wears off quickly and it's easier to just do things myself than it is to tell Alexa.

That's an interesting article which makes me want to get a mechanical keyboard. But one question first: is Apple magic wireless keyboard considered a mechanical keyboard?

It isn't a true mechanical keyboard and mostly just added alphanumeric keys, but who knows what the future holds.  It would be fantastic if they did change things, but Apple loves the sleek design aesthetic.
