The Best Smartwatch For Every Wrist 

I’ve been keen on smartwatches pretty much since day one . I get a lot of emails, texts, and assorted notifications, most of them garbage but some vitally important.

“What Kind of Day Has It Been?” Even on its best days, Sorkin’s “The Newsroom” was a disappointment

Audiences can’t watch The Newsroom like a normal show. The “best” episodes of Aaron Sorkin’s orgy of preachiness are arguably the ones that are so irredeemably bad and offensive that they manage to do what the show rarely does, passing an important metric for success: They’re interesting.
