If you use Google's products, there's a good chance the company already has a copy your credit card details stored somewhere - in your Chrome browser's autofill settings, gathering dust in a Google Wallet, or inside Android Pay. But soon, "over the coming weeks", Google says it will merge the various ways it gobbles up this information under a new umbrella called Google Pay.
Are you having a hard time justifying the cost of Apple's new $7299+ iMac Pro? If you're willing to part with the computer's matching Space Grey-coloured keyboard, mouse, and trackpad, which are only available with the desktop, you could sell them on eBay for obscene amounts and make some of your investment back.
It's not what you think. The YouTube video "Cooking With Your Mouth | Christmas Turkey" sounds like some crazy science experiment where some brave chef heats up ingredients in her cheeks and then swallows them. In fact, it's much more disgusting than that. I can't stop watching it, but I also have some questions.
Summer's just getting started in Australia and if you haven't already sorted out a robust cooling solution, now might be the time to, er, build an entirely new house. Alright, alright... that's kind of unrealistic. Unless you're the retired couple that commissioned this slick number, which uses a "passive solar envelope" to deliver electricity-free cooling.
When your life revolves around living in the middle of a large city, it can be hard to find time or space to pretend you're somewhere that isn't surrounded by concrete and pigeons. I'm not sure how effective Alice Bleton's "Monade capsule" -- a hanging, fibreglass refuge for the apartment-bound -- is at helping one escape, but it's got to be better than, uh, sitting at a desk all day.
Hela's headdress from Thor: Ragnarok is the best thing to happen in film in 2017. It should win an Oscar. That headdress should be inducted into the Screenwriter's Guild. It's the queer icon of a queer icon.
Designer Robert W. Blakeley isn't a household name, but every American has seen his work. No, he wasn't employed by Coca-Cola or Ford or Disney, but instead worked for the US government. Blakeley's most famous design? He came up with the yellow and black fallout shelter sign. Sadly, he died last week at the age of 95.

You may not know the name Gin D. Wong, but you definitely know his work. He's responsible for some of the most iconic buildings in Los Angeles, including the Theme Building at the Los Angeles Airport (pictured above), and he even inspired the designers of the legendary 1962 animated TV show The Jetsons. Wong died on September 1 at the age of 94.
Of all the Nissan Z cars, arguably two endure the most today: the original 240Z, and the sleek and twin-turbocharged Z32 300ZX of the 1990s. And the designer of that car, Toshio Yamashita, wasn't just content to design rad cars back in the day. He's been helping teach the art of car design to the next generation, so he shared the fascinating process he uses to think about car design and brainstorm new cars.
As they say: Life comes at you fast. Yesterday, you were looking at a YouTube logo with the red thing on the right side, highlighting the word "Tube". Today, it's on the left side, sporting a play icon. It's a small update to the design of a popular website, you might say. But will any of us ever be the same?
How many times have you stumbled in the dark, trying to locate a torch, only to discover the batteries inside it are dead? It's an inconvenience in the middle of the night, but a genuine problem in an emergency, which is why this roll-up paper torch from Nendo seems like a brilliant idea for when the power unexpectedly goes out.
Ryanair is having a tough time. As Brexit threatens to turn its entire business upside down, passengers can't stop getting drunk on its flights, doing something stupid on camera, and causing all kinds of chaos when the video hits the internet. Now, Ryanair is trying to restrict how much people drink at the airport.
Steve Jobs was legendary for knowing what he wanted and leaning on his designers until he got it. But according to a new book on the history of the iPhone, he insisted that it should have a back button. After one of his people presented a good argument for the distinctive single home button, he backed down.
When it comes to design software, the Adobe Creative Cloud suite is king, and anyone looking to make a living as a graphic designer or video editor needs to know it inside out. Programs like Photoshop and Illustrator have a rep for being complicated, but thanks to this Adobe CC Essentials Training Bundle, you can master the suite in no time.
Do you ever sit down at your desk and wonder why the elevated surface doesn't have more sensors to record and analyse data about your movements and habits? Well, wonder no more, my ergonomically-minded friend. Herman Miller, the manufacturer behind the Aeron chair, has invented a solution to the problem you never knew existed.
