All those items you keep in your bag or your pocket at all times — like a lighter and a pocket knife — have a name. They’re called everyday carry (EDC) essentials and they’re probably not just pocket fillers. Each item serves a purpose (or often, many purposes) and prepares you for whatever the day ahead brings. And in 2021, those basic essentials have seen some major upgrades. Wallets now double as chargers. Keyholders work double-duty as flashlights. The EDC game has changed and it’s time to join the modern era.For a limited time, you can update your EDC essentials for up to 65% off when you enter the code VIP15 at checkout.Cyclist Card Everyday Carry Multi-ToolDesigned for cyclists, this single steel multi-tool packs over 43 functions for everything from mending a wobbly seat to prying

​​Crypto CEO threatens customers after mistakenly sending them millions

Imagine waking up one morning and finding an unexpected $20 million in your bank account. It would be pretty sweet for a moment, until you realize that money isn't legally yours and the bank will soon correct the mistake.But...what if the bank couldn't do that?Well, that hypothetical scenario became real for a few lucky users of the decentralized finance (DeFi) staking protocol Compound, which acts like a bank without all the traditional banking rules. Tweet may have been deleted Now Compound's founder is begging those users to return around $90 million, or around 280,000 COMP, that mistakenly went out. And he's taking the ask a step further by threatening users who don't return the money.Compound and other DeFi protocols basically work as blockchain-based banks, allowing users to bor...
Honestly, I don't love this new iMessage feature in iOS 15

Honestly, I don't love this new iMessage feature in iOS 15

Urban Hippie
A new version of iOS always takes some getting used to. But must I get used to this?Those of you who have downloaded iOS 15 might have noticed a new functionality in iMessage. When someone sends a photo, video, or group of photos, a download icon appears in the chat stream right beside the media. The icon is a little square with a downward arrow going through it. Click the button, and you'll save the image to your photo stream, which Apple displays by transforming the icon into a checkmark. My sister shared a picture of her dog, but I'm distracted by the ugly icon right next to it.

'Reservation Dogs' is worth the hype and more

'Reservation Dogs' is worth the hype and more

Urban Hippie
If you missed FX's Reservation Dogs in the fall TV deluge, it's time to fix that. The eight-episode comedy concluded its first season on Sept. 20, which means you can now stream every episode at your leisure — which, if you're like us, probably means within a day.Created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, Reservation Dogs immerses you in the world of four Oklahoma teens with dreams of moving to California. There's Bear (D'Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai), who considers himself leader; razor-sharp Elora Danan (Devery Jacobs), sweet-voiced but deadly Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis), and Cheese (Lane Factor), sweet Cheese. Almost the entire cast and creative team of the show are Indigenous Americans, a decision that pays off in every single frame.Reservation Dogs wastes no time orienting the viewer to its w

James Corden and his staff play a tense game of curling against U.S. Olympians

James Corden is no stranger to dabbling in random sports. He's previously boxed with David Beckham, shot arrows with Jason Momoa, and taken part in a celebrity dodgeball game with so many famous faces it was almost hard to keep track. But this week he sets his sights on the world of curling. Backed up by four members of the Late Late Show staff and with the support of gold medalist John Shuster, Corden took to the ice to take on a formidable team of athletes.The resulting game wasn't exactly the cleanest in the record books, but the Late Late Show team certainly made their mark.Want more?James Corden's rant about Halloween prompts all his staff to turn on himJon Stewart lectures Stephen Colbert on what makes the perfect sandwichJames Corden's staff made candy sculptures of his face with wi...

Netflix's 'The Guilty' is a horribly stressful thriller with Jake Gyllenhaal at his absolute best

Urban Hippie
Anyone who's seen Prisoners will know that Jake Gyllenhaal is no stranger to the role of troubled detective. Or that of complex characters (see Stronger and Nocturnal Animals). Or committing so hard to a role that you can see the physical evidence of it on screen (Everest, Southpaw, Nightcrawler, the list goes on).With the camera focused on him for almost the full 90 minutes in The Guilty, Gyllenhaal combines all those skills into one excruciatingly tense performance. He throws himself into the role of detective-turned-911-dispatcher Joe Baylor with so much anger, pain, and sadness that you're forced to go through every single emotion with him.I haven't seen all of Gyllenhaal's films up to this point, but I've seen a lot of them. And this might be his best performance yet. Based on...
This is the fattest of the extremely fat bears

This is the fattest of the extremely fat bears

Urban Hippie
Welcome to Fat Bear Week 2021! Katmai National Park and Preserve’s brown bears spent the summer gorging on 4,500-calorie salmon, and they've transformed into rotund giants, some over 1,000 pounds. The Alaskan park is holding its annual playoff-like competition for the fattest of the fat bears (you can vote online between Sept. 29 through Oct. 5). Mashable will be following all the ursine activity. We are witnessing greatness.In an Alaskan realm where the natural world is flourishing, nearly all Katmai's bears are fat and healthy. Yet for the past half-decade or so, one bear has consistently been the largest, putting on eye-opening fat stores for the long winter hibernation. He is bear 747. He is an MVP in his prime in a hyper-competitive league. He is last year's champ. His greatest rivals
