Celebrate the App Store’s 10th (or, soon, 11th) anniversary with one of the iPhone’s first games.


Apple is indulging in some App Store nostalgia by reviving its version of Texas Hold’em, which originally launched on the iPod in 2006 before landing on the iPhone two years later. Although Apple had removed Texas Hold’Em from the App Store in 2011, it’s now back with new characters, a fresh design, and tougher challenges. It’s also free instead of $5.

Don’t save evaluations for performance reviews.


I didn’t start my career in leadership as a good manager. In fact, early on, I’m pretty sure that I was a really bad manager. I micromanaged and never had consistent one-on-ones. My team didn’t know if I was criticizing them or if I was just joking, and I rarely gave praise.

In an exclusive interview, the basketball player discusses his new MIT Media Lab fellowship, and how he plans to use the platform to reform education.


When Jaylen Brown has a few seconds to spare on the clock and an open floor around him, he likes to go to the basket with a reverse dunk. He launches his six-foot-seven-inch body off both feet at once, then pulls them together and tucks them underneath himself like a kid on a trampoline. His Celtics jersey stretches across his chest. With his back already turned to the net, he locks eyes on the rim over his shoulder before looking

Neuroscientist Tara Swart argues that snacking and comparing yourself to someone else can lessen your cognitive functions.


If someone asks you how you spend your time when you’re not at work, do you know where most of your day go? It still surprises me that most busy people have their workday mapped out meticulously, yet they don’t realize how their time outside of work slips away. Partly, this is a consequence of the increasingly blurred lines that now exist between work and home. And partly, it’s a result of the fact that the tasks that take up time in ou

The recent hack of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection subcontractor’s database confirmed fears that biometric data—such as photo IDs and fingerprints—are vulnerable to hacking.


For years, activists in the privacy and security communities have warned that biometric data, including photo IDs, fingerprints, and other information, could be hacked by bad actors.

It was easier to put a man on the moon than accept women as rocket scientists. A half-century after the Apollo missions, the first female Mission Control engineer is still fighting for women’s rights.

Just about every major tech company and startup is talking about security these days—and it’s about time.

It’s easy to imagine these wearable circuits on the shelves of CVS.


The Apple Watch is an enticing product, but it hasn’t revolutionized personal health the way its cheerleaders have promised. It can track steps, but it can’t see how your body is moving. It can measure your heart rate, but it can’t see how you are healing. The Apple Watch really only scratches the surface of what we imagine for intimate, wearable electronics.
