Far from their reputation as a polarizing pizza topping, sardines are actually a great source of protein, packed with Omega-3s and completely devoid of carbs. Jose Gourmet Sardines are a great way to enjoy this overlooked snack. They arrive in handsome packaging with custom artwork on the cover, and come in several different flavors, including smoked, soaked in olive oil with lemon, and our favorite, spicy with piri-piri pepper.



It’s been years since Apple redesigned the MacBook Pro. They’ve used the time wisely. The new Apple MacBook Pro is thinner, lighter, and smaller than the previous generation. The display comes in 13- and 15-inch varieties, and is brighter, has greater contrast, and displays more colors than before. Open it up, and you’ll find a Force Touch trackpad that’s twice as large, an all-new keyboard, and, most noticeably, the Touch Bar. It’s a multi-touch display that replaces the function keys, dynamically changing depending on what you’re doing, with a Touch ID-enabled power button hidden on the far-right side. Hidden inside, there are Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, Intel Iris or Radeon Pro graphics, even faster SSD storage, an all-new speaker design, and four Thunderbolt 3 ports that also support charging, USB-C, and video out. But most likely the first thing you’ll notice is the color: in addition to the classic silver, the all-aluminum body will now be available in a subdued space gray. $1.800+

Microsoft’s First All-in-One Desktop

Microsoft is expanding its Surface line of laptops and tablets. The company announced its first-ever all-in-one desktop, the Surface Studio, which is undoubtedly meant to disrupt a market recently dominated by the likes of HP, Apple and Dell.

The Surface Studio, powered by Windows 10, features a 28-inch, 12.5mm thin PixelSense touchscreen display — the thinnest LCD monitor ever. And it’s beautiful. The display uses 13.5 million pixels, which amounts to 192 PPI, or 63 percent more than a 4K TV.

Other specs include a powerful Intel Core processor, 32GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive and integrated 2.1 speakers. Also, its hinge can be adjusted down to a 20-degree angle — “nearly flat” — so users will have a better experience drawing with a stylus and, come Spring 2017, creating 3D content with the Windows 10 Creators Update.


YouTube Launches ‘End Screens’ Feature

At the end of videos on most YouTube channels, content creators usually try to link users to their other videos. Sometimes these videos might be other videos that are similar in nature, or they might be the previously released video. This is done to help keep users on their channel and to increase viewer count, which in turn also affects their revenue.

However it looks like soon content creators won’t have to bother as YouTube could do it for them. The company has recently announced that they will be introducing the “End Screens” feature to all content creators. Prior to this, the feature was only limited to a handful of creators for testing purposes, but now YouTube has made it available to all.
