    'Silicon Valley' to End After Season 6 on HBO

    Pied Piper is going out of business — well, at least the show about the fictional start-up company is. HBO announced on Friday that the upcoming sixth season of “Silicon Valley” will be the show’s last. “‘Silicon Valley’ has been a career and life highlight for us. We’ll miss it desperately, but we’ve always let Pied Piper’s journey guide the way, and Season 6 seems to be the fitting conclusion,” showrunners Mike Judge and Alec Berg said. “We are forever indebted to our i...

    What Happened After My 13-Year-Old Son Joined the Alt-Right

    When my son Sam,* who was then 14, asked me to take him to the Mother of All Rallies on the Mall in September 2017, I said no. The pro-Trump event was billed as a demonstration to preserve “traditional American culture,” and white supremacists were expected to show up in force. Not only was this not how I wanted to spend a Saturday—like almost everyone I knew, I’d been devastated by the 2016 election results—but I had serious concerns about safety. At Charlottesville’s Unite the Righ...

    'Zombie firms' a major drag on UK economy, analysis shows

    A rising number of underperforming “zombie firms” are creating a major drag on the UK economy and threaten to exacerbate a future downturn, says a new analysis by KPMG. As many as one in seven UK firms are potentially “under sustained financial strain” and had been able to “stagger on” partly thanks to low interest rates, the accountancy firm warned. These struggling firms are crowding out healthy rivals, when under more normal economic circumstances they would probably have ceased trading.

    New research suggests that you may need to look at an unusual factor when considering a move to a new city – its personality. A study published in Psychological Science in 2016 found small but statistically significant links between your self-esteem and the personalities of the people living in the same city as you. The researchers decided to compare the Big 5 personality traits (openness, agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, and emotional stability) of individuals to the Big 5 pers...

    Android's Bluetooth latency needs a serious overhaul

    If it wasn’t annoying enough that Android has some issues with sound quality differences of Bluetooth audio codecs, it seems as if there’s a latency problem as well. While it’s not an issue for music playback, Bluetooth latency is an important factor when watching movies, making calls, and playing games. You’ve probably already noticed it yourself when pausing music or skipping to the next track. There’s a lag between your input and the sound changing in your ear. With gaming, in parti...

    Do not weep for your dead: how to mourn as the Stoics did

    Imagine you are at a child’s funeral. The child is yours. The air is numb with silence. An ache so deep you can barely breathe moves through you, until it bursts and you cry out loud. Somebody passes a tissue; another rests his hand on your shoulder. In time, your eyes run out of tears. But now there is a hole in your heart in the shape of a child, and it feels like it will never heal. Maybe it shouldn’t, you think to yourself. You lost a child. This stays with you. It’s supposed to stay w...

    You Can’t Stop Robocalls. You Shouldn’t Have To.

    The robocalls come when you are driving and they bother you at night. It doesn’t matter if you’re in bed or in a meeting. Here’s the worst news: There is really no way for you to stop them. I know this because for the past few years, I have been bombarded with robocalls alerting me that I owe student loans, or that I won a free vacation, or that I am being audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
