Spaces co-working: Working from home is overrated

March 21, 2017
Working from home can be great. No one’s gonna drain the coffee pot before you get there; no one’s gonna drop a “what’s happening?” on you when you’re in the flow; and, yes, pants are optional. But it can be lonely, and it’s nice to have people to bounce your work off of. When you’re a one-man team, or your team is spread out, you might consider a co-working space. And if you’re going that far, then you might as well consider Spaces co-working!

I’m Michael Fisher –MrMobile to the world– and I normally just have one weirdo I share an office with (Justus knows he’s a weirdo; it’s okay). Recently he and I got to check out Spaces co-working on Newbury Street in Boston. There, we shared offices with software developers, lawyers, artists, and many others – and ate tons of free hummus in the process. To see how we fared, click that video … and to learn more about Spaces co-working, click here.

How to get Evolution Items in Pokémon Go

March 20, 2017
How do you evolve Onix, Porygon, Scyther, Seadra, and other Gen 1 Pokémon into their all-new Gen 2 forms? With Evolution Items!

Updated March 21, 2017: Pokémon Go is updating to restore the guaranteed Evolution Item from your 7-day streak PokéStop spin. Hallelujah!

The 7-day ‘First PokéStop of the Day’ streak will now award a random Evolution item.

The change is listed as part of an upcoming software update but is actually server-side and reports are already coming in that it’s up and running.

In Pokémon Go Gen 1, you could evolve any Pokémon you wanted as long as you had enough Candy. For some Pokémon in Gen 2, though, Candy is no longer enough. Now, if you want to evolve Gloom into Bellosum, Sunkern into Sunflora, Poliwhirl into Politeod, Slowpoke into Slowking, Onix into Steelix, Scyther into Scizor, Seadra into Kingdra, and Porygon into Porygon 2 you need more — You need Evolution Stones. Here’s how they work!

The iPhone sees (Product)RED

Apple has once again expanded the color palette of the iPhone, this time introducing a beautiful new red finish for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, again partnering with the (Product)RED campaign to donate a portion of this model’s sales to fund HIV/AIDS prevention programs.

Apple has also given a small update to the iPhone SE. The 4-inch iPhone now comes in 32GB and 128GB models, an upgrade over the 16GB and 64GB models introduced last year.

Reddit to experiment with proper profiles, users predictably freak out

March 20, 2017
If you ask Redditors, Reddit just ruined everything forever with a small test offered to a handful of users. Not an overreaction at all, nope…

A small group of content creators on Reddit have been chosen to test an early version of a new feature. Basically, these users now have public profiles for other Redditors to subscribe to. These users can post things directly to this profile, making it possible for individual profile posts to appear on the home page instead of through a particular community. According to Reddit, this test is all about courting content creators.

We’re making this change because content creators tell us they have a hard time finding the right place to post their content. We also want to support them in being able to grow their own followers (similar to how communities can build subscribers). We’ve been working very closely with mods in a few communities to make sure the product will not negatively impact our existing communities. These mods have provided …

How to add an iCloud email alias and keep your email address safe

March 20, 2017
How do I set up and use iCloud email aliases? Using your web browser and iPhone!

An iCloud email alias allows people to send email to your iCloud account without ever having to divulge your true email address. This not only helps secure your account against potential malicious users on the web, but you can also use aliases to signup for mailing lists and other miscellany — and kill them if the list turns into too much spam or junk.

Here’s how you can create and manage your iCloud email aliases for your Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
