Your commute just got easier with Google Pay and the AssistantYour commute just got easier with Google Pay and the Assistant

New York City now joins that list of destinations.

Опусы про Его Величество Клей. Часть третья — полиуретан vs космический холод

Посвящается всем туристам-водникам, рыбакам и морякам, которым удалось или не удалось (но, надеюсь, удастся после прочтения статьи) заклеить дыры на своих ПВХ судах, ибо не Десмоколом единым… Полиуретаны вошли в мою жизнь еще в раннем детстве, когда я с жаром доказывал мамке, что выгоднее купить дорогие кроссовки от Белкельме с полиуретановой подошвой, а не лидские с разлазящимся непонятным пластиком (позднее, кстати, «лидские» исправились), просто потому что «полиуретан — вечный». В принципе так оно и было, кроссовки изнашивались до трухи, а подошва, подошва выглядела как в день покупки. Второе «открытие» этого важного класса полимеров для меня состоялось тогда, когда я познакомился…

App Developer Panic Announces New $149 ‘Playdate’ Game System Coming in 2020

Panic, a company known for developing apps for iOS and macOS, today announced plans to enter the hardware market with the launch of the Playdate, a new handheld gaming system.

Playdate features an entirely unique design with a black and white display, d-pad, A+B buttons, and a crank on the side that’s designed to be similar to an analog stick.

Oh yeah, the crank! No, it doesn't power the device. It's a flip-out rotational controller that puts a fresh spin on fun. Some games use it exclusively, some use it with the d-pad, and some not at all. pic.twitter.com/XYW97nLZKK— Playdate (@playdate)…

A dating app for literal monsters exposes the bias in our swipes

Sure, online dating is a hellscape. But in this new online dating game, that’s a good thing.
Developer Ben Berman and designer Miguel Perez created a game that seeks to expose the inherent bias that fuels dating app matching algorithms. The pair are winners of Mozilla’s Creative Media Awards, which enabled the work.
The best part of the game, besides the admirable mission and all, is that the game is based around a dating app — for monsters.

Which monster will you choose?Image: MonstermatchThe new game/dating app simulator is called MonsterMatch. Yep, the name rocks. The simulator launched Wednesday, and you can play it…

The Products You Need to Fix Five Common Nasty Foot Problems

I am very vain about my feet. There, I said it. (Foot fetishists love me, and now I’ve also said that!) But my feet, they are not without their issues — heels that are highly prone to cracking due to sandal abuse, toenails that are all jacked up from too much time spent at the gym, that sort of stuff.Read more……
