How Do You Pronounce Buttigieg? The Internet Counts the Ways

How Do You Pronounce Buttigieg? The Internet Counts the Ways

The trick to pronouncing presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg’s last name is to keep your lips almost totally puckered through all three syllables. At least, that’s the only way I’m able to do it. If I can get my lips halfway between a pout and a whistle, and say it in one quick exhale, I can get it. Bood-eh-jedge, bood-eh-jedge, bood-eh-jedge. I learned this a few days ago from watching video after YouTube video of Buttigieg

The next iPhone is rumored to be able to charge up your other gadgets

Reversible wireless charging – the ability to charge other gadgets as well as be charged wirelessly – is heading to the iPhone 11, according to supply chain sources. Japanese blog Mac Otakara says its insiders are confident that the Wireless PowerShare technology will make its way into at least some of the 2019 iPhone models when they’re unveiled (probably in September). In theory that would mean you could drop your new AirPods case or your Apple Watch on top of

Blizzard Says Overwatch Toxicity Is Down 40 Percent

Blizzard Says Overwatch Toxicity Is Down 40 Percent

Not so long ago, Overwatch was a poster child for toxicity run rampant in competitive multiplayer games. People regularly trolled and spewed vitriol while a barebones report system did little to stem the tide. Oh, what a difference a couple years (and a smartly implemented endorsement system) makes. Overwatch, like pretty much all competitive games, still has its fair share of toxicity—or as Blizzard calls it, “disruptive behavior”—but during a talk at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Blizzard

We got got.  Special counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report to the Attorney General on Friday afternoon. The investigation looks into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, but despite calls for transparency from politicians, Americans, and emboldened mothers on social media, the report hasn’t been released to the public yet.  Another report has been making the rounds, even if it’s not the one Mueller delivered to William Barr.  The document, which is a glorious 69 pages long, is titled

Elon Musk defends tweets in SEC’s contempt proceedings – TechCrunch

Tesla CEO Elon Musk argued Friday that his Twitter use did not violate a settlement agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and that the agency’s request to have him held in contempt is based on a “radical interpretation” of the order, according to court papers filed in Manhattan federal court. The SEC has asked a judge to hold Musk in contempt for violating a settlement agreement reached last year over Musk’s now infamous “funding secured” tweet. Under that agreement, Musk

scratchcard, lightning scratchcard, lightning network

The Lightning Network is where all the weird and wonderful use cases of Bitcoin BTC micro-payments come to life. You can order a Coke, feed chickens, dispense candy, and even play roulette or Pokémon, all courtesy of the Bitcoin sidechain. But thanks to one enterprising dev, the Lightning Network now has scratchcards. This one has 1,000,000 Satoshis (0.01 BTC) hidden in it. That’s about $40 at the time of writing, not too bad for a scratchcard that might only cost

Volvo's EVA Initiative aims to make cars safer for women and children

Some people are safer than others on the road. That’s because, even in 2019, many car makers use data based on crash test dummies based on the average man. To help solve that problem and make driving equally safe for everyone, Volvo is sharing its database of real-world crash data with the whole industry. Volvo has been gathering data from actual car accidents since the 1970s to find out what happens to real people in a crash  –  men, women
