There’s always something new to watch on Twitch, whether it’s someone build-gunning their way through a Fortnite match, completing a 24-hour marathon of some classic game you haven’t played since childhood, or showing you all the secrets for that brand-new expansion from your favourite digital card game.
Broadway superstars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt dropped a bomb for theatre geeks early this morning, remixing two songs from their always-sold-out musicals into a lovely duet you can purchase or stream for free across a number of different online services, like YouTube.
As Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen fans burn through their data plans putting this hot track on loop, it's a great time to revisit all the different ways you can save YouTube content offline for obsessively watching later.
Most turkey prep is designed to compensate for its lack of fat, and therefore, flavour. Dry brining is the best way to season your bird from the inside out, but for the juiciest, most delicious meat, you’ve gotta add some fat — and there’s no better fat than butter.
There comes a time in every gamer’s life when their ageing graphics card doesn’t cut it anymore. While your older card is to be commended for its years of service — and you two probably had many fond memories together — it’s time to let your friend live out its days elsewhere and upgrade to something newer, faster, and much more expensive.
Not only does Amazon track your purchases, it tracks all the products you looked at and didn't buy too. Here's how to make it go away. There are a couple reasons you might want to clear your Amazon browsing history. Maybe you share an Amazon account with someone and don't want them to see what you've been looking at — like when you're browsing potential gifts — or perhaps you're tired of getting Amazon's targeted ads based on your browsing history.
It feels like Microsoft is ramping up its major system updates for Windows, with one now coming every six months or so. But the problem, apart from Redmond eating your files, is that Windows updates always leave a lot of temporary files and other space-stealing junk on your PC. This can accumulate over time and eat up many wasted gigabytes, which you may not be able to spare—nor should you have to.
The kitchen is truly the heart of the home, and anyone who's lived with roommates has, shall we say, a more nuanced understanding of that old cliche. Kitchens feed resentment and bitterness just as easily as they produce joy and, unless you and your roommates communicate directly, you're in for a very bad time. Here are some guidelines to help you get off on the right foot.
If you're lucky, you'll never have to defend yourself through physical violence. But if that time ever comes, or if you're ever enrolled in a Fight Club against your will, would you know what to do? You've seen punches thrown on TV plenty of times, but do you actually know how to throw one correctly? We asked three elite martial artists and a boxer to share their best takedown tips.
Homemade pizza nerds are a passionate bunch; for a timid novice, the sheer amount of conflicting information available on various pizza-enthusiast boards is anything but encouraging. I'm here to tell you that you don't need to build a backyard brick oven or even buy a stone to make great pizza - in fact, you probably already have everything you need.
We love roasted vegetables around here, and we’re always interested in simple ways to make this already-versatile technique even more appealing. A recent oven fries bender got me thinking: if a little cornflour can turn sad, limp, roasted potato sticks into crunchy, basically fried goodness, can it do the same for other vegetables?
Gmail's Smart Replies feature, now cemented into the service's latest design update for desktop clients, are a great way to send pithy responses when you don't feel like typing out a real one. Sure, they might annoy recipients; and you might even tap the wrong reply, inadvertently telling your boss "love it!" when he or she asks you to put in some extra work this weekend. But aren't they convenient?
The “Golden Master” of iOS 12 — which should be the final version released to the public on Monday, September 17 — is now available. If you want to get your hands on the new iPhone and iPad operating system a few days before everybody else — by “everybody else”, I mean “normal people who don’t run public betas of operating systems” — here’s how.
Have you ever wanted to break into the world of cosplay? Or maybe you just want a kickass costume for your next themed party? Even if you've never touched a sewing machine before (let alone power tools or thermoplastics) there's still hope! The first step to getting into cosplay is to remind yourself that everyone has to start somewhere. Eight years ago, I didn't even know how to backstitch on my Elna Elina 40 -- if you're wondering what the hell a 'backstitch' is right now, you're in the right place.
So you're humming along on your Windows desktop, chatting with your friends on your social media service of choice or filling Chaos demons full of holes in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor — Martyr (one of the most epic names for a game I've seen in a while). And then, your system zoots off. Yes, zoots.
