You might think that a new Netflix film called “Holidate” offers holiday-themed romance that’s perfect for a family watch party. You’d be wrong. The film stars Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey as a pair of strangers who agree (in classic romantic comedy style) to keep each other company on holidays. And while the movie can’t […]
Ikea no longer makes the translucent plastic Fniss trashcans, sadly, and I can confirm that the current opaque model‘s thicker polypropylene material is useless for performing free jazz on glass tabletops.
One of the things we love best about the articles we publish on Hackaday is the dynamic that can develop between the hacker and the readers. At its best, the comment section of an article can be a model of collaborative effort, with readers’ ideas and suggestions making their way …read more
Black Friday — the day that launched 1,000 other shopping holidays — may have lost its place as the “start” of the Christmas shopping season by now (it gets bigger and earlier with each passing year).

The HackRF is an exceptionally capable software defined radio (SDR) transceiver, but naturally you need to connect it to a computer to actually do anything with it. So the PortaPack was developed to turn it into a stand-alone device with the addition of a touchscreen LCD, a few buttons, and …read more
There’s a sleek form factor for desktop computers known as an “all-in-one” that enrobes a computer in a monitor. While the convenience of having all your computing in a neat package has some nice benefits, it comes with an unfortunate downside. Someday the computer inside is going to be old …read more
When you’re working from home, there are two fantastic reasons for picking up a quality pair of over-ear headphones. First, they can help you focus in on your work, like listening or communicating intently during a video conference. Second, they can be a great barrier against the rest of the world, blocking out the pets, kids, and other distractions that can come with a home office. — Read the rest
If there is one thing that Sir Clive SInclair was famous for, it was producing electronic devices that somehow managed to squeeze near-impossible performance out of relatively meagre components.

(Check out the video above to get a pretty good sense of what the games are like; we called Altoâs Adventure âthe next great iPad gameâ in our review way back in 2015.)
Originally, youâd control Alto and his snowboarding / sandboarding friends by simply tapping the iPhone, iPad or Android touchscreen to jump and perform tricks, but the games now have full controller support as well. Youâve…

You think itâs a typo? Some pricing error, maybe a scam where youâll owe the full amount when allâs said and done? Nope! Itâs just that the 98-inch Q900 normally costs$100,000, and Samsung is making it a win-win for everyone (particularly us!) by offering it half-off.
Wait, youâre telling me you donât have $50,000 for a new TV? How are you going to afford a 98-inch 8K television with that kind of thinking? You canât, of course: at the bargain…
