Star Trek is no stranger to cinema, and the franchise’s quality of films tends to fluctuate with each new release. We’ve seen plenty of pretty good films from the series, and we’ve also seen films that weren’t as good as they could’ve been. Everyone’s got their own favorites, but if there’s one thing that can be… Read more...

Clubhouse has laid off some of its employees, Bloomberg reported on Thursday .

Apple Watch•
You wear your Apple Watch every day to work, play, and exercise, so why does it still shine with the original factory display? Customizing your Apple Watch face elevates the display of your precious accessory and allows for a more personal look. Whereas the options were once fairly limited.

Many honeymooners head to the dreamy oasis of Bora Bora, rent a luxurious over-the-water bungalow in the Maldives or maybe even head to a five-star resort in Maui where they whale-watch and munch on fresh pineapple and macadamia nuts.

There’s never a good time to let your Global Entry membership lapse. It would end your access to expedited border processing when arriving from an international flight. You’d also lose access to the TSA PreCheck line at airport security checkpoints. To accidentally let your membership lapse right now is of even greater concern due to a backlog of applications and increased demand, which has led t

It seems to me that it is one thing to save a seat or even a row, and other thing entirely to save multiple rows. Still it is not against Southwest’s rules. I’m not sure how a passenger trying to save a row behind them would block a passenger from sitting there, but social custom seems to make it a plausible strategy. Is saving multiple rows of seats going overboard? Would you honor someone’s cla

With summer around the corner, Sonos has discounted both of its Bluetooth speakers.

One of the healthiest airport amenities has returned just in time for summer travel. Denver International Airport (DEN) has reactivated the open-air public plaza that sits between the tent-topped main Jeppesen Terminal and the Westin Denver International Airport hotel.

When Star Alliance was officially launched in May 1997 the internet was in its infancy, Ryanair was little more than a small Irish regional airline and the Gulf hardly registered in global air traffic charts.

The German word “heimat” popped into my head as soon as I started writing this story. It’s difficult to translate it directly into English, but it’s essentially the feeling you get when you are home and comfortable. You feel warm and fuzzy inside, and the sensation usually resides in your stomach. As someone who received a college degree in German, that’s how I interpret the word; it’s truly my f

The final color will look more “champagne-like” than the current gold offered by Apple, according
