How to fix the spinner after login in macOS
Posted on Wednesday June 28, 2017

A few days ago, after my 12-inch MacBook running the latest Sierra became sluggish, I restarted. After entering my account password, my Mac showed a white progress spinner that uses “spokes”—the kind of spinner you usually see at shutdown—would appear for several seconds, then disappear, replaced with a cursor that couldn’t be moved with the trackpad. This would recur over and over for hours.

To every spinner, turn, turn, turn, there is a reason, turn, turn, turn.

Lifeproof NÜÜD and FRĒ for iPhone 7 Plus review: Two waterproof cases, but only one was build to last
Posted on Wednesday June 28, 2017

The iPhone 7 Plus is water resistant, but it’s not waterproof. It’s not particularly resilient, either: drop one on the ground and it’s a crapshoot as to whether or not you’ll pick it back up with a shattered display. 

Enter Lifeproof’s NÜÜD ($100 MSRP) and FRĒ ($90 MSRP) cases. 

Both cases are designed to keep your pricey tech-slab from being destroyed by the elements or misadventure. The back of the NÜÜD case is transparent, allowing you to enjoy the iPhone 7 Plus’ industrial design while tapping and swiping away on an unprotected display—nothing will get between you and your content. The FRĒ sheaths your smartphone in layers of rubber and rugged plastic and protects your iPhone’s display from scratches with a thin plastic membrane. Both cases come with watertight port covers for keeping the elements out and a tool to help you remove your iPhone from its case if you ever feel the need to do so.

College attendance drops after widespread job loss
Posted on Thursday June 15, 2017

When states suffer widespread job loss, the damage extends to the next generation, where college attendance drops among poor students, says new research. States marked by shuttered factories and dormant mines thus show a widening gap in college attendance between rich and poor. Yet poor students in hard-hit states don't avoid college simply because they can't afford it. Instead, job losses trigger adolescent emotional problems and poor academic performance -- which put college out of reach.
