Lingerie As Outerwear, The Fashion Trend That Took Over Instagram In Lockdown

View this post on Instagram half dressed A post shared by Megan Adelaide Vega (@meganadelaide) on Sep 11, 2020 at 2:28pm PDT By now, we’ve all heard about the success of loungewear during lockdown. The fact that sweatpants prevailed while all else was put on pause has been thoroughly hammered into our brains by reports, collections focusing on loungewear, and even NYFW trends. But what did people wear when they weren’t bundled up in hoodies and joggers? (Certainly not jeans.) According to Instagram, intimates, from nightgowns to bras and boxer shorts, were the other quarantine go-to. But rather than wearing underwear as just underwear, homebodies are now styling their lingerie… Read More

California’s housing crisis is so dire, a startup just raised $3.5 million in VC funding to drop tiny houses in people’s backyards

Summary List Placement “I’m sorry I’m late, I’m coming from my biweekly Covid test,” says John Geary, a startup founder. Most days, Geary, who runs a housing startup called Abodu, works out of a showroom in Redwood City, California, where homebuyers can check out his company’s prefabricated tiny houses on display, by appointment only. He runs to a drive-thru Covid-testing site on his lunch hour every two weeks so he can keep meeting customers. But Geary’s work was considered essential long before the coronavirus pandemic mandated it. California’s Bay Area housing stock has all but dried up.

Acer’s Halo is a Google Assistant smart speaker with LEDs

Acer has announced the $109 Halo smart speaker at its October hardware event. It’s a 360-degree speaker that has the Google Assistant built-in to handle queries and tasks, and Acer says it’s one of the first smart speakers to have DTS sound. With that, it should be especially suited at offering a cinematic sound. It’s relatively easy to see what stands out about this device; it has an RGB base that changes color and lighting patterns, and its LEDs can show the weather and other images. Honestly, I think the Halo looks like a oil diffuser, but I’ll take Acer’s word that it’s actually a speaker. This device will release… Read More

Acer’s Swift 3X includes Intel’s new Iris Xe Max discrete GPU

Acer’s Swift 3X steps up the graphics game. I like Acer’s Swift 3 line because it really has its finger on the features that students need. The Swift 3 doesn’t look fancy and doesn’t come with any cutting-edge bells and whistles. But it’s sturdy and portable with good performance and solid battery life — and best of all, it’s affordable. I’ve spent a bit of time checking out Acer’s Swift 3X, a slightly scaled-up version of the Acer Swift 3. It looks, feels, and is built like a Swift 3, with a notable exception: it has a discrete GPU. Latest Intel processor, latest Intel graphics. The Swift 3X contains Intel’s… Read More
