Par Joel Cunningham

This week’s most significant new additions to Netflix give you a choice between diving into the tumultuous past and staring headlong into the present. It’s hard to say which offers the more upsetting vision of the world. Just kidding, it’s the latter option.

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

We could all use a little more mindfulness right now, but learning how to start meditating regularly can be intimidating, especially for kids.

See When Other Apps Use Your Microphone or Camera With This Android App

Par David Murphy

One of my favorite tiny features from Apple’s upcoming iOS 14 operating system is a big one for privacy and security—a rare two-fer.

Explain a Lost Stuffed Animal's New Appearance With This Story

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

Every parent of a child with a dearly beloved “lovey” lives in fear. Lovies—a favorite blanket, stuffed animal or other soft toy—tend to go everywhere their toddling owner goes. Which means they have a way of getting lost in the most inconvenient of places, such as the gas station you stopped at during your road trip,…

Clean Your Dirty Microwave With a Lemon

Par Joel Kahn

We’ve been on quite the home improvement kick, as tends to happen when you’ve been stuck inside for months. Last week we explored whether you can clean an oven with a lemon (spoiler: you cannot), but today we’re cleaning the science oven, aka the microwave! Will a lemon do the trick this time?

How Are You Fighting Quarantine Cooking Fatigue?

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

When my city first started to close up back in March, I went to the restaurant supply store and loaded up on pasta, canned tomatoes, eggs, onions, several non-perishable staples and lots of hot sauce. I thought we were looking at a month or so of staying inside and I fully planned to avoid the grocery store the entire…

Like it or not, Amazon Prime has become a major lifeline for many during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing them to get food and supplies delivered quickly to their home.

Save Those Crustacean Shells to Make a Sauce Base

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

This weekend, my boyfriend and I made crab sauce—a red sauce full of delicious crab. There were huge pieces of Dungeness meat, yes, but the true hero of the sauce were the crab shells, which we mashed and simmered with onion and fennel to make an intensely crabby base.

How to Create a Learning Space for Kids at Home

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

There is a very good chance our kids will spend at least part (or most, or all) of their week learning virtually from home after the school year starts back up this fall. And although we managed to make it through the spring with makeshift learning spaces where they completed their sporadic assignments and took part…

HIPAA Doesn't Mean You Can't Ask People Why They Aren't Wearing a Mask

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

The law known as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, is hugely misunderstood. And the latest people to misunderstand it are anti-maskers who claim that it’s illegal to ask them why they’re not wearing a mask. That’s not how the law works. That’s not how any of this works.

Par David Murphy

Yes, Telegram. You probably know it as a chat app some use in place of—or to supplement—standard iOS or Android messaging apps. I’m a geek, and I don’t really use anything but the typical ones, but there’s at least one other great reason to try Telegram out: It provides you with free, unlimited storage for all of…

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

Yesterday afternoon, Senate Republicans unveiled the HEALS Act, their latest response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

You Can Finally Stream Spotify From Your PC to Google Home Speakers

Par Brendan Hesse

Spotify is available on almost every popular device we can think of.

No-Cook Meals to Make During a Heat Wave

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

We're Still in the First Wave

Par Elizabeth Yuko on Vitals, shared by Elizabeth Yuko to Lifehacker

Despite being told for months that the novel coronavirus is unlike anything we’ve dealt with in modern times, it’s still tempting for us to think of it in terms of influenza. (Even though they’re definitely not the same thing.) This makes sense because we’re familiar with the flu, and with flu season, and they seem to…

If We Can't Open Sports Safely, What Hope Is There for Opening Schools?

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

As I read the many pages of our district’s return-to-school plans, I only had two questions in mind: How will you know if somebody has the coronavirus? and Assuming that the virus makes it into the school, because it will, how will you make sure that it doesn’t get transmitted to anybody else? The plan did not answer…

Should You Sign Up for 100GB of Free Dropbox Storage on Your Chromebook?

One of the best parts of buying a Chromebook is perusing all the deals Google dumps on top of your purchase. (You do know about the deals, right?)

Chill Your Cereal Bowl in the Fridge Overnight

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

I honestly have a hard time trusting people who claim to not like breakfast cereal. It’s one of those foods that has been engineered to get people to eat it—it’s basically kibble for people!—and those who insist they are unaffected by flavor science are very suspicious to me indeed.

Between the decimation of normal life in the spring and this long, boring-ass summer we’re all wading through, one thing parents may have become extra lax on is a consistent bedtime.

This week, Senate Republicans introduced the HEALS Act, the party’s next stimulus relief bill. While the $1 trillion plan calls for unemployment insurance, direct payments, forgivable Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and more—there’s not much in it for student loan borrowers.

How to Figure Out If You're Dating a Narcissist

Par Rebecca Fishbein

When Lisa* met Adam* in graduate school, she thought she’d hit the dating jackpot. “He was very wealthy, very charismatic, and at first he was very charming,” she says. “He was constantly showering me with gifts, fancy dinners, and romanic nights out. He was playing by this 1950s courtship rulebook.” But over time,…

Waffled Tofu Absolutely Rules

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

Waffle makers are very good at getting foods hot and crispy, and that just happens to be how I like my tofu (and my SPAM, prosciutto crisps, and potato cakes). I also like my tofu saucy, and waffled tofu—with its little square cups—holds sauce like no other.

Will This TikTok Cereal Box Hack Solve All Your Breakfast Problems?

A viral hack has been circulating on TikTok for a while now. In the countless videos of the #CerealBoxChallenge (does TikTok use hashtags?

Get Paid to Be a Beekeeper

Par Emily Long

Like butterflies and fireflies, bee populations have been hard-hit by habitat loss. Honeybees are important pollinators for a wide range of plants, and while bee colonies fared a little better over the last year than expected, data show declines of up to 90% in some areas over a 15-year period.

Is Your State Is Having a Tax-Free Back-to-School Weekend in 2020?

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

Even in normal times, school supply lists were often long and oddly specific (five orange pocket folders?). But this year, they’re long and oddly specific and we also have to spend money to set up remote-learning spaces in our homes, because even if our kids go back into the classrooms in the fall, we know it’s only a…
