With Thanksgiving just past us and Christmas still to come, we’re right in the heart of the holiday travel season, so it’s a good time to remind you to stop leaving your laptop at TSA airport checkpoints.

This was underscored last week when a rep from the TSA shared a tweet (below), showing dozens of laptops stacked on a shelf, all left behind at TSA checkpoints at Newark International Airport in Newark, New Jersey.

About 70 laptops left at @TSA checkpoints at @EWRairport since October. Leave an item at a checkpoint? Contact us: https://t.co/mnPs9ccz15 pic.twitter.com/1y7wbjiCf9

Starry-eyed singer, actor and musician hopefuls flock to both Los Angeles, California and Nashville, Tennessee seeking opportunities to brush shoulders with industry greats. However, the cities’ respective associations with the entertainment world are where their similarities begin and end.

Nashville, with a population of just under 660,000, is bite-sized compared to L.A.’s whopping 9.6 million residents. The two cities exude decidedly different vibes, too. Nashville is country cool, rooted in Southern Americana; only recently has the town experienced an injection of aloof, hipster flair. L.A., in contrast, has ’50s charm and a signature, flippant attitude that’s inextricably tied to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Read more…

The “smart home” is becoming a reality. We’re starting to see the launch and adoption of countless types of Wi-Fi-enabled devices that previously had no digital value or function. It’s only a matter of time before the entirety of our homes are stitched together through the same Internet connection, making the bandwidth and coverage of your Wi-Fi more important than it’s ever been.

So what types of appliances are currently enjoying these features?  Read more…

If you were planning on abusing a plane full of passengers with your excited about a presidential victory anytime soon, bad news: Delta Air Lines doesn’t want any part of it.  

The news comes from the airline after a video of a Trump supporter yelling at other passengers on a Delta flight went viral over the weekend. The spontaneous orator in question opted to share some uniquely poetic, philosophical nuggets, such as “Donald Trump, baby!” and “We got some Hillary bitches on here.” 

Needless to say, because anyone doing anything on a plane is a base-level of annoying, his fellow passengers weren’t exactly crazy about this: Read more…
