The first over-the-counter (OTC) birth control pill was approved last year. It's called Opill, and over the past month or so, it has finally started showing up on pharmacy shelves. Finally I can answer those questions everyone was asking when it was first approved: How much does it actually cost? And will insurance cover it?  What is Opill’s sticker price?  The price for Opill you’ll see on almost every website is $19.99 per pack. (This is sometimes described as a “monthly” pack, but there are only 28 pills per pack; as is common with birth control. You’ll go through about 13 packs p ..read more

Most people shopping for a rowing machine will fit into one of two categories: those who are already committed to the rowing lifestyle, and those who just want a good workout. I fall into the latter. I was recently provided with one of Merach's magnetic rowing machines to test out, and I found that it's been a great home workout option that's quiet, portable, and affordable while I work to rehab my ACL—but it may not be for everyone. Easy to set up, quiet, and easy to move Merach Rowing Machine with App $329.99 at Amazon Shop Now Shop Now $329.99 at Amazon This rowing machine com ..read more

Using a Microsoft account with Windows 11 is the best way to access all of its features, including Microsoft Copilot, OneDrive, and more. But some people just don’t want to use a Microsoft Account and have all of their data connected to the cloud, and that’s fine. If you’re one of those people, or if you just plan to give the PC you’re setting up to a friend, you can follow a few simple steps to use a local account instead.

It’s hard to imagine a time when hotels didn’t have smart TVs. Not all that long ago, some even made their TVs a selling point, plastering “free HBO” all over their roadside signs. These days, guests are more likely to stick to their phones, sacrificing their room’s beautiful 48-inch flatscreen on the altar of TikTok and YouTube. But with just a little extra work, you can get the best of both worlds, as cast whatever is on your phone to your hotel room's smart TV. How to cast your iPhone to a hotel TV There’s official and unofficial options to send what's on your iPhone to a TV. Let’s start wi ..read more

‘TikTok Notes’ Is Instagram’s Newest Competition

3h ago
If Instagram stole TikTok's schtick when rolling out Reels, it seems TikTok is keen to repay the favor. The company is working on a new app, TikTok Notes, that seems remarkably like Meta's popular photo sharing platform. The company originally teased this idea earlier this month through notifications sent to users, with the title "Your photo posts will be show on TikTok Notes." The alert explains how TikTok Notes is a new app for photo posts, so future public TikTok photo posts will be displayed on the company's new dedicated app. It provided an option for users to opt out of TikTok Notes if t ..read more

How to Block the New Ads Microsoft Added to Windows 11

by
3h ago
I recently upgraded my "unsupported" PC to Windows 11 and was immediately bombarded with banner alerts, ads, and current affairs news that I'd rather not be force fed by my operating system. Windows 11 doesn't exactly offer a pleasant experience out of the box, but you can adjust a few settings to fix most of its issues. You may be tempted to use a third-party tool to disable all of Microsoft's invasive tracking with one click. While this may sound like the easier method that following this guide, I don't recommend it—it's difficult to know what kinds of changes such tools are making under the ..read more

Mesh wifi is a newer way to distribute internet across homes with thick walls, multiple stories, or larger square footage while still keeping a strong connection. Mesh networks work differently from extenders and boosters and do a much better job of keeping your signal strong. If you've tried solutions like mounting your router on the ceiling and are still not getting the speeds you need, a mesh network might be in order. Depending on your situation, certain mesh wifi systems will be a better fit than others, but there is one particular mesh system deal also offering Wi-Fi 7 that you should co ..read more

How to Turn Any Space in Your House Into a Bathroom (Without Plumbing)
Lifehacker
by
3h ago
Where once it was standard to have just one bathroom in our homes, the number of bathrooms considered normal has steadily grown over the years, and the majority of new-build homes have at least two bathrooms these days. It makes sense: Why not have a private bathroom just for you and a second bathroom (or two) for the kids or guests? This often leads us to wish for more bathrooms, for a lot of reasons: If you only have one, adding an en-suite bath feels luxurious, and having a dedicated guest bath makes your home feel more inviting. If you’re going to have a long-term guest (like a parent or c ..read more

So many apps and websites these days have dark mode that it's a bit jarring when one doesn't. While most of Google's products offer dark mode (Gmail offers a ton of customizable themes), the company has continued to leave users of many of its web apps in the, well, light. That is, at least, until now: Google Drive has dark mode, people. According to Android Police, Google has been working on this rollout for about a month, starting with a limited release. As of Tuesday, however, it should now be rolling out to all users, although it might take until May 1 for all users to see it. As part of th ..read more
