A Sidewalk coverage map claims the network reaches over 90 percent of the US population. | Image: Amazon It turns out that I have a low-power, low-bandwidth, long-range IoT network all around me, ready and waiting for my smart gadgets to jump on. Today, Amazon revealed just how far its Sidewalk IoT network penetrates the average American neighborhood. And it’s deep. The company’s first Sidewalk coverage map claims that over 90 percent of the US population can access the now public network (it’s limited to the US only). Using a Sidewalk developer test kit supplied by Amazon, I drove around my town to confirm this data and, over three days of traveling more than 40 miles, found that the connectivity was...

Paula Forbes loves bay leaves but their relevance has been called into question online in recent weeks. Often fished out of pots, the leaves impart flavor but aren't edible. 
Last year, Ina Garten gave an interview to the New Yorker Radio Hour, where she questioned what the bay leaf brings to a recipe. A mixture of green tea and thyme, with a vegetal and floral quality, the leaves have a tinge of menthol and scent.
Paula Forbes weighs in on the bay leaf brouhaha for her Substack newsletter, Stained Page News and scoured cookbooks to see what experts had to say about their use in Indian, Arab, Louisianan, and Scandinavian cooking.

After working in the kitchens of Jean-George Vongerichten and Thomas Keller, Jennifer Yee challenged herself to make a plant-based croissant. She says the third time was a charm and she was well on her way to conquering butterless pastry. 
After a stint at Konbi, Yee opened Bakers Bench in Far East Plaza, where she sells plant-based baked goods alongside buttery counterparts. Managing her own schedule, quality of life became an ingredient for balance. Yee admits, "I always felt like if I just put in my time and I just worked at the hardest kitchens I could get myself into and get them on the resume, eventually it would pay off.” 
Depending on the product, Yee uses two different butter substitutes, but...

Kate Reid: I think my love of motor racing, in particular Formula 1, started from a very young age. I'm really close to my dad, we've been best mates our whole life. And for me, Dad had loved motor racing since before I was born. And it felt natural to me that I was hanging out, probably sitting on the couch watching the Formula 1 races as they...

Chanie Apfelbaum was raised in a kosher home, eating traditional Ashkenazi Jewish food including kugel, gefilte fish, brisket, and matzo ball soup. "All brown foods," she remembers. 
Today, Apfelbaum keeps kosher but puts modern twists when she cooks for her family, using ingredients like coconut oil, miso, and soy, for umami flavor. Since a kosher diet prohibits dairy and meat being consumed together, she opts for real dairy and will turn to a meat substitute so she can maintain a gooey, cheese pull.
Many of her recipes that appeared on her blog "Busy in Brooklyn" appear in her new book, "Totally Kosher." Curried Gefilte Fish Patties

Los Angeles has always been a place where young people dream and work toward success in entertainment while toiling in hospitality jobs. Catering is an odd profession where waiters are perennially backstage, which can be frustrating for anyone with dreams. The workplace comedy "Party Down" debuted over a decade ago with a window into the catering and events world. Season 3 is a reboot airing on STARZ with returning cast members including Adam Scott, Ken Marino, and Martin Starr. New York Times critic at large Tejal Rao took a look at this inhospitable part of hospitality.
"Party Down" dismantles the glamor associated with big Hollywood parties and offers some honest, behind-the-scenes truisms from the point of...

I love HDR. I think every modern movie, TV show, and game should take advantage of the incredible clarity that the extra dynamic range can deliver — particularly on my OLED TV, where the bright beautiful colors and inky blacks are enough to make an art-lover weep. However,...

Sometimes, you just want to go ride your bike in the great outdoors, but you can’t be bothered throwing it in the back of the car. That wouldn’t be a problem if you rode this latest build from [The Q]: a bike small enough to fit in a handbag.
The build starts by customizing a rollerblade wheel to act as the driven rear wheel of the bike. It’s fitted with a tiny sprocket allowing it to be chain driven. Welding some steel tubes then nets a small diamond-layout bike frame. It’s fitted with a chain ring, pedals, and steering assembly just like a full-sized bike, just in absolute miniature.
Riding the bike is “uncomfortable,” in [The Q]’s own terms, but entirely possible. It basically requires the...

The casting comes after an extensive open call as Disney searched for the remake’s leading role of a girl who adopts a fugitive alien after mistaking it for a dog. The animated version came out in 2002 from directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois; the live-action remake will be helmed by Marcel the Shell With Shoes On director Dean Fleischer Camp, with a script by Chris Kekaniokalani Bright.

The Jetson Rogue. | Image: Jetson Another hoverboard is being recalled due to fire risk. According to a notice on the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) website, the 42-volt Jetson Rogue is being recalled because the lithium-ion battery packs in the hoverboards can overheat. A fire marshal in Pennsylvania determined that a Jetson Rogue was the point of origin for a fire that killed two children, the CPSC’s notice says. The parents of the children are suing Jetson and Target, where they say they purchased the hoverboard, alleging the two companies should have known of the risk of fire-related injuries due to the design of the Jetson Rogue.

But in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Secret Invasion executive producer Jonathan Schwartz likened the series to John le Carré’s classic Cold War-era spy thrillers and pointed to more recent shows, like FX’s The Americans and Showtime’s Homeland, as sources of inspiration.

In recent years, website blocking has become one of the most widely-used anti-piracy enforcement mechanisms in the world.
ISPs in several dozen countries prevent subscribers from accessing a variety of ‘pirate’ sites. While new blocks are added every month, research on the effectiveness of these efforts is rather limited.
Early Piracy Blocking Research
One of the earliest pieces of academic research, based on UK data, showed that the local Pirate Bay blockade had little effect on legal consumption. Instead, pirates turned to alternative pirate sites, proxies, or VPNs to bypass the virtual restrictions. A follow-up study added more color and brought hope for rightsholders. The research showed that once a...

If you look up at the night sky in a dark enough place, with enough patience you’re almost sure to see a satellite cross the sky. It’s pretty cool to think you’re watching light reflect off a hunk of metal zipping around the Earth fast enough to never hit it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work during the daylight hours, and you really only get to see satellites in low orbits.
Thankfully, there’s a trick that allows you to see satellites any time of day, even the ones in geosynchronous orbits — you just need to look using microwaves. That’s what [Gabe] at [saveitforparts] did with a repurposed portable satellite dish, the kind that people who really don’t like being without their satellite TV...

When you want a backpack that turns heads and gets people talking, you can get ahead of the conversation with a talking backpack. [Nina] created a rucksack with the legendary babbler itself, the infamous Furby.
Believe it or not, no actual Furbies were sacrificed in the making of this backpack. The build uses an Arduino Nano, two servos, and a DFPlayer Mini for audio. A 3D printed faceplate is used for the iconic eyes and face. The code is fairly simple, waiting for a random delay and then triggering one of four effects. It can play a sound or blink and does its best to move the mouth while the sound is playing thanks to the handy busy line coming off the sound module. A unicorn children’s backpack offered a...

Travelling the continent’s hackerspaces over the years, I have visited quite a few spaces located in university towns. They share a depressingly common theme, of a community hackerspace full of former students who are now technology professionals, sharing a city with a university anxious to own all the things in the technology space and actively sabotaging the things they don’t own. I’ve seen spaces made homeless by university expansion, I’ve seen universities purposefully align their own events to clash with a hackerspace open night and discourage students from joining, and in one particularly egregious instance, I’ve even seen a university take legal action against a space because they used the...

Overmono “Good Lies”
If you’ve read this site long enough you’ve surely seen me try to write about a musical move I mainly associate with Four Tet but is a fairly widely used technique in dance music – sampling and editing vocals for purely sensual effect, often to the point that any lyrical content is lost or illegible. Overmono do that here on “Good Lies” but the vocal isn’t totally abstracted, just edited in a way that smears the singer’s annunciation so some words come through and others get blurred. I love the effect as it intersects with the ebbs and flow of their composition, the way it makes the song overall feel surreal and stoned. We hear music all the time and our brains...
