Add an Egg Yolk to Your Grits and Savory Oatmeal

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

The egg yolk is the best part of the egg. There is no denying this. Yolks are basically neat little orbs of rich, golden sauce that taste good on everything, and you should add them to your savory breakfast cereals, especially grits.

How to Fix the Most Common iMessage Problems

Par Thorin Klosowski and Emily Long

iMessage is one of the perks of being inside the Apple universe: The service gets around text messaging fees so you can send messages to other Apple users for free, and it works on wifi so you can message anywhere you don’t have a cell connection—on an airplane, for example, or when traveling abroad without a data…

Don't Keep Wipes in Your Car

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

As a suburban mom, my car is my home base. (Or it was in pre-pandemic times, anyway.) If there was a tiny chance I might need something someday while I was out and about, it lived in the car. Sunscreen? Check. Diapers? A whole case, in the trunk. Wipes? Probably a couple packages. There’s a problem with that last one,…

How to Match Your Kid With a Bike That Fits

Par Meghan Moravcik Walbert on Offspring, shared by Meghan Moravcik Walbert to Lifehacker

It used to be that when it was time to buy my son a new bike, we’d take him to the store and let him try a couple out. Usually just him sitting on one for a few moments was enough to tell us if a bike was too small, too big or just right. Well, around here in Eastern Pennsylvania (and in many other areas), bikes have…

Par Kate Dore on Two Cents, shared by Kate Dore to Lifehacker

On Tuesday, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a financial watchdog agency, made headlines by rolling back rules for payday lenders. The revised rules say lenders no longer have to assess if borrowers can afford to repay short-term loans.

Before you start reading this, pull out your iPad, pull up the App Store, and make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of the Gmail app. If you’re using iPadOS 13 or later, you’ll now be able to multitask—finally—which means you’ll be able to access your many, many emails while having other apps loaded and…

12 Seasonings I Keep by My Stove at All Times

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

I believe, in everyone’s kitchen, there is a collection of seasonings and flavoring agents that one leans on quite heavily. I’m not talking about salt—which, for me, is another discussion entirely. I’m talking about the other shakers and bottles, the ones that are used so often they never make it back into a cabinet.…

How to Uninstall Edge Chromium When Windows 10 Won't Let You

Par Brendan Hesse

Edge Chromium is a decent web browser. I’d even go as far as to say it’s worth swapping over to from Google Chrome, given its improvements with memory usage. However, Microsoft has been incredibly annoying about stuffing Edge Chromium down everyone’s throats, and a recent Windows update locks this browser into your OS…

Cases of an odd battery-draining iOS bug are on the rise and the Apple Music app appears to be the culprit, with reports showing that the app can rapidly eat up to 95 percent of a device’s battery for no reason. The issue affects a wide variety of iOS devices, but most of the recent cases appear to be running iOS…

These Countries Let Americans Study Abroad for Next to Nothing

Par Imani Bashir

According to Forbes Magazine, student loan debt in the United States has jumped to $1.56 trillion spread across 45 million borrowers. With the pandemic raging and over 17.5 million Americans unemployed, and the cost of college averaging between around $20,000 for a public college and over $45,000 for private, going to…

Why You Should Feed Your Cat 5 Times a Day

Par Micaela Heck

Do you have the kind of cat who paws at your face at an ungodly hour of the morning until you finally relent and get up? Does s/he then proceed to meow and whine until you fill up their food bowl? It’s not that your cat is unusually gluttonous; it could be that they’re telling you that it’s a natural feeding time for…

Get a Custom Playlist with Spotify's 'Soundtrack Your Workout' Tool

Par Emily Long on Vitals, shared by Emily Long to Lifehacker

Bored with your workout mix? Us too. Especially if you’ve been working out at home—alone—for the duration of the pandemic, it’s unsurprising that you’re tired of listening to the same music, and perfectly understandable if you also feel overwhelmed at the idea of making a fresh playlist for each and every session.

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

There are 431 disinfectants that the EPA says will kill SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. They made the list because they kill other, similar viruses. But now two of the disinfectants have been tested, successfully, against the actual coronavirus you’re worried about.

How to Help Your Teenager Find a Virtual Summer Job

Par Angela Hatem on Offspring, shared by Meghan Moravcik Walbert to Lifehacker

Summer jobs are more than a backdrop for 1980’s teen romcoms—they are an adolescent right of passage. For some kids, these starter gigs are their first real bite of independence. For others, it’s a chance to hone a skill that could later become a career. And for all kids, it’s a chance to make a little—or sometimes a…

One of the most useful features on any Windows PC or Mac is the ability to schedule it to power it on at a set time each day.

What to Do if You Can't Pay Your Taxes Next Week

Par Kate Dore on Two Cents, shared by Kate Dore to Lifehacker

It’s official: Taxes are due next week. Back in March, the government pushed the filing deadline to July 15, and the Treasury Department recently confirmed they won’t be moving it again. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to file your tax return and pay what you owe.

Risk Isn't Just About You, Asshole

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

In the great American spirit of independence, some people have come up with an extremely shitty take on pandemic safety precautions. It goes something like: “I feel safe doing this. If you don’t, you should stay home.”

How to Try Out Android's New 'AirDrop' Feature

Par David Murphy

I remember when Apple first launched AirDrop on iOS back in 2013. A different version had already been around on the Mac for some time, and it was irrelevant, because AirDrop was far more useful when you could shoot files between different iPhones and laptops, not just the latter. At the time, I thought to myself,…

The Car Brands With the Highest Maintenance Costs Over Time

Par Kristin Wong on Two Cents, shared by Joel Cunningham to Lifehacker

The true cost of owning a car goes well beyond the sticker price, beyond fixed costs like annual registration fees and monthly car insurance, even beyond the exquisite pain of the occasional parking ticket. Though you might think of it as little more than regular oil changes and a set of new tires ever few years,…

Our Best Methods to Clean Stained Pots and Pans

Par Joel Kahn

No matter how hard you scrub or soak, your pots and pans remain stained, brown, and grimy. And while well-used pans are a sign of your cooking prowess (or at least, how often you cook), sometimes you just want to see your own reflection in the bottom of a skillet.

Soak Your Watermelon in a Negroni

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

Soaking watermelon in some sort of alcohol is hardly a new summer strategy. I’ve traditionally favored vodka or tequila—both of which are perfectly serviceable—as pretty much any single liquor can serve as a watermelon’s bathwater. But why stop at one when you could build a complete cocktail? That’s why this summer,…

Keep Extra Bottles of Sunscreen Anywhere You Might Need Them

Par Nicole Dieker

A lot of us don’t wear sunscreen nearly as often as we should. Sometimes that’s because we don’t reapply it often enough (you should slather on more every two hours you are out and about in the sun, and more often if you’re swimming) or we don’t apply as much as we really need in the first place (you should be using…

10 Video Games That Can Replace Traditional Summer Activities

It’s going to be an endless summer, and not in a cool “surfer-movie-from-the-1960s” way. You and your kiddies are looking at two more months of very little social contact and a lot of indoor time. Luckily, playing video games all day is just as fun as normal summertime activities like camping, traveling and…

Looking for a job is hard, but the stress doesn’t stop once you finally get an offer. It can be tempting to just say “yes” to the first offer you get, especially these days when the job market seems to be drying up, but you still need to make sure you’re happy with the deal you’re being offered—or even that the job…

It's Not Healthy to Feel Super Guilty About Calories

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

Food can be fraught with emotion and meaning. When it’s labeled with a number of calories, even more so, because that number matches the food to your weight, your exercise habits, and your potentially complicated feelings about both.

How to Get Rid of Samsung's Ads on Your Galaxy Phone

Par David Murphy

I don’t have a Samsung smartphone, but if I did, I’d be pretty pissed about paying anywhere from $1,000-$2,000 for a device that comes packed full of native advertising. Your not-so-meager investment apparently isn’t enough for Samsung, which has taken to filling its default apps on its devices full of ads. There are

If You Eat Out Right Now, Don't Be a Jerk

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

Restaurants and bars are opening up across the country, and people sure are going to them! That is certainly a choice that I don’t feel comfortable making, but if you simply must go out right now and pay someone else to make and bring you your food, it’s very important that you don’t act like an unappreciative dweeb.

The 12 Best Games on the iPhone

Par Kotaku Staff on Kotaku, shared by Joel Cunningham to Lifehacker

Time was, iPhone games were a distraction. You’d play them on a commute, or while the water boiled, or during Destiny loading screens. But that was then, and this is now. In case you didn’t know, today’s options today are just as polished (and fun!) as many console counterparts. And now that there are more games on…

Well, at Least We Aren't Facing a Bubonic Plague Pandemic

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

Yes, it’s 2020, and bad things are happening. But the diagnoses of a few cases of plague in Mongolia and Inner Mongolia do not portend a rerun of the Black Death. Like the so-called murder hornets, this scare is another dud.

What Would It Mean If the Coronavirus Is Airborne?

COVID-19 is known to be transmitted mainly by respiratory droplets. This is the reasoning behind physical distancing, since it’s hard for those droplets to travel more than a few feet.

Par Lisa Rowan on Two Cents, shared by Lisa Rowan to Lifehacker

I am currently in the process of buying my first home, and one of the more confusing (and frustrating) aspects of first-time homebuying involved the mortgage pre-approval letter.

If you’re the parent of a toddler or preschooler, chances are you’ve discovered the joy (and the mess) that sensory activities can bring.

Brush Your Homemade Pita Chips With Honey

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

Getting food to go, even from your favorite restaurant, is not the same experience as eating at that restaurant. For instance, my favorite Lebanese restaurant (Nicholas) always sends out a giant pita for the table, which is served on its very own pedestal. Not only do I not have a pita pedestal (sad), I don’t have the…
