All the best VPNs for protecting your Mac

Urban Hippie
There are a number of reasons why you might want to start using a VPN. These security tools offer many benefits, including bypassing geographic restrictions for unlocking shows and films on popular streaming sites.VPNs can also help to protect your privacy and make your browsing more secure (although it's always a good idea to vet your VPN provider's claims carefully — some do a better a job than others). VPNs can encrypt your traffic and provide protection against things like hackers, viruses, and malware. All of this is essential if you own a MacBook, because you don't want online threats attacking your most precious device.What is a VPN?Without getting too deep in the weeds — we've already done so here — a virtual private network, or VPN, is an encrypted connection between your Mac and

Simone Biles redefined GOAT. It's a win for us all.

Simone Biles redefined GOAT. It's a win for us all.

Urban Hippie
To be the greatest of all time is to wield power. And Simone Biles wielded hers wisely and with grace on Tuesday. The gold medalist and record-breaker showed us all how the GOAT should act when she withdrew from the artistic gymnastics women's team final to care for her mental health. Her teammates in turn gave the world a master class in how to support a struggling colleague, even when their ailment is invisible.Biles cheered from the sidelines as Team USA continued on, winning silver. When she explained to her teammates that she was stepping aside, they freaked out, but she encouraged them to "kick some butt, just like we've done in training. And just lay it out on the floor," she told Hoda Kotb of Today. Bars wizard Sunisa Lee responded with a rallying cry: "We can go out there and show...
Slack is appalling Olympics viewers with an excruciating ad on repeat

Slack is appalling Olympics viewers with an excruciating ad on repeat

Urban Hippie
Whether you're watching on the NBC app or on cable, there are only so many commercials that play during the Olympics. Most of them feature athletes whose stories of overcoming adversity and achieving greatness get somehow loosely associated with, like, an airline. A consequence of being invested in the Olympics means you see these commercials over and over and over again. And then one more time.It's mostly fine, though. I'll watch American swimmer/nice guy/hottie Ryan Murphy talk about his migraines all day. ALL. DAY. But there is one commercial of the Tokyo Olympics that I cannot abide. And it ends not with a bang, but a knock brush. Tweet may have been deleted Quite simply, how dare they. I'm talking about Slack, and the company's ad, titled "Work in Progress." It's a cheery, 30-sec...

10 of the best earbuds for every situation

Urban Hippie
They might be small, but earbuds shouldn’t be taken lightly. Finding a good pair of buds is pretty tricky, and you’ve likely gone through more earbuds over the years than you can count. Picking up a £10 pair of earbuds in the checkout line is easy enough but you know deep down that you’ll be back there again next month (or even sooner) because they’ve fizzled out already. Spending that much will only get you so far. Does that mean all earbuds are poor quality? Absolutely not. Thumping bass, immersive noise cancellation, and crisp sound is not exclusive to over-ear headphones. There are plenty of premium, feature-heavy earbuds out there.Which is better, over-ear headphones or earbuds?Ultimately there’s no definitive answer to this question. It’s down to personal preference. Some of you will

All the horror movie references in Netflix's 'Fear Street' trilogy

Urban Hippie
Leigh Janiak's Fear Street trilogy may be based on R.L. Stine's beloved teen horror books, but it makes more than a few references to classic horror films — Netflix even opened its own totally '90s pop-up video stores to promote the series.The three-part Netflix film series, Part 1: 1994, Part 2: 1978, and Part 3: 1666, makes both overt and subtle nods to iconic horror films like Scream, Friday the 13th, The Shining, The Exorcist, Poltergeist, The Evil Dead, Night of the Living Dead, and Halloween, whether in the form of a passing name-drop in dialogue, a blatant shot re-creation, or a sneaky real estate sign in the background of a scene.In the video above, Netflix points out these references, so you can spot anything you missed while avoiding your own peril in Shadyside.
