After backing away, the next course of action is to layer on a heavy-duty formula to cover all the red bumps up (then layer some more).But, as you probably know but don't want to think about, that only clogs pores, which makes matters worse. So what's one to do? If you want to ki...

It’ll give you so much time that you have the time to think that. The name Reese’s brings excitement when printed on a package. Go post a photo of something with R...

If what we’re really interested in is having the kind of long-term relationship that inspires this sort o...

Instagram denies it’s building Regramming. Here’s why it’d be a disaster

Instagram tells me Regramming, or the ability to instantly repost someone else’s feed post to your followers like a retweet, is “not happening”, not being built, and not being tested.

The denial comes after it initially issued a “no comment” to The Verge’s Casey Newton, who published that he’d seen screenshots of a native Instagram resharing sent to him by a source. Regramming would be a fundamental shift in how Instagram works, not necessarily in t...

At some point, even podcasting aficionados started to wonder who had time to to listen to all those podcasts. A similar thing happened with video, after everyone pivoted to short-form video because Facebook said it wanted as much as possible. ...
