Apple’s new $699 iPhone 11 hits a significantly lower price point than the $999 iPhone 11 Pro and $1,099 iPhone 11 Pro Max. But after a few days of steady use on all three devices, I found the 11 to be quite comparable to the Pro versions. Apple leveled the playing field with this year’s lineup by bringing premium features like dual cameras and a lightning-fast A13 Bionic chipset to a $699 iPhone. The dual cameras in the top left corner are huge for a phone at this price point. By comparison, its predecessor, the still-available iPhone XR, has one lens, and is only $50 less. That’s kind of wild. With the 11, you get a 12-megapixel wide and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens paired with a sizeable LED flash. Yes, it still creates a slight camera bump on the back, so it doesn’t lie completely flat. However, most cases, like Apple’s iPhone 11 Clear Case, factor this in and compensate so you can lay the devi...

40 Surprising Home Products On Amazon That Are Skyrocketing In Popularity

Sure, Amazon is synonymous with the breadth of its offerings — you can get everything from apple slices to a 1.5-ton belt sander on the site — but it’s somewhere in the middle, like with these surprising home products, that it really shines. I mean, sure, it’s fun to gab with your besties about the strangest thing Amazon recommended today. At the end of the day, though, it’s the products that legit have the capability to make our lives easier that positions Amazon as the change-maker it is in our day-to-day lives. The examples are plentiful: I love this personal blender that’s small but mighty, petite enough to pack with you on business or leisure trips but powerful enough to crunch ice into your beverage, for example. There’s this sprayer attachment that cuts your cleaning time in half, whether you’re scouring your dishes, scrubbing your windows, or getting your car clean for a big weekend. Or there’s this massaging shower mat that scrubs your feet while treating them to a circulation-restoring massage — a winning combination if I’ve ever heard one. Who knows — it could be that what you need to really live your best life is just a...

Self-improvement is a big business. Who doesn’t want to get thinner, fitter, richer, more successful — or just be happier? But to achieve all these things, you’ve got to get organized. Despite the fact that most of us have some form of electronic calendar on our phones or computers, many people still rely on their paper planning agenda to keep their lives running smoothly. I’m one of those people. And while I do switch up the brand sometimes, I’m committed to using a planner that breaks down the calendar by the week. Seeing one day at a time — or the whole month — just doesn’t work for me. Some people choose to start fresh with a new planner in January. Others — particularly college students, teachers, and parents — often opt for a 16-month calendar that starts in August or September. These days, planners usually come with much more than just calendars. In fact, many of the best-selling pla...

Reward Climbs to $35K as Search for New Jersey 5-Year-Old Comes Up Dry

Police are hopeful, but reluctant to provide too much information, in the search for a missing 5-year-old girl in Bridgeton, New Jersey. The reward for information leading to a 5-year-old New Jersey girl climbed to $35,000 Friday as a search that involved more than one hundred local and federal officers failed to turn up the missing child. Officials expanded the search radius by about a mile and a half but still failed to find Dulce María Alavez, who police believe was kidnapped by a man as she played at Bridgeton City Park around 4 p.m. Monday, Bridgeton Police Department Chief Michael Gaimari said. “I’m not going to go into anything as a reference to what was recovered or anything like that. It’s all part of the investigation,” Gaimari told reporters during a Friday afternoon press conference. He refused to answer follow-up questions. A an official for Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to NBC10 that the boyfriend of Alavez’s mother, who is not the girl’s biological father, had been detained by ICE and then released. However, the official would not confirm whether or not the boyfriend was in ICE custody at the time of the disappea...

Boston team cleans up more than 14,000 needles each week

Those potentially hazardous sharps are collected by members of several teams, officials with Boston Public Health Commission explained. A team of four employees is assigned to pick up used syringes when they’ve been discarded like litter, for example. Another team made up of eight outreach workers collects the needles as they attempt to connect people to recovery services. Boston’s 311 system, which has collected data on calls for needle pickups since 2015, shows the number of calls has grown significantly each year. So far in 2019, the database indicates 4,956 calls for needle pickup, exceeding the total of 4,654 calls from all of 2018. Those 311 data-points represent only calls for the service, not the number of needles reported or the number found by the clean-up team. Officials with the Boston Public Health Commission said the city plans to install 10 more kiosks for collecting used sharps, bringing the total in Boston to 18.

Perfect Illusion: Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency is the role she was born to play

The musician will put on two wildly different shows – the futuristic pop odyssey Enigma, and Jazz & Piano, which will feature standards from the Great American Songbook. Helen Brown reports “Las Vegas,” said the author Tom Wolfe, “is the only town whose skyline is made up neither of buildings, like New York, nor of trees, like Wilbraham, Massachusetts, but signs.” Tonight, the newest of those signs will be lit up with the name of Lady Gaga, an artist who has spent the last decade dancing and limping by turns around the dazzling mirage of her own superstardom. While selling upwards of 31 million pop albums, 32-year-old Stefani Germanotta has dressed in meat, broken down the lyrics of her hits into robotic syllables and appeared in the raw drag persona of a misogynistic ex-lover at the 2011 MTV Awards, sneering on this most public stage that a superstar like her was incapable of expressing real emotion, even in the bedroom. As anyone who’s seen her live knows, the big reveal comes when she steps aside from the layers of detachment, irony and extreme theatricality to throw back her head to yell, “Surprise! A pop show, and the bitch can sing!”, right before hurling her mighty he...

Hurricane Dorian wrecks Labor Day break at Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral

COCOA BEACH – One of Orlando’s favorite beach escapes would have been wall-to-wall with Labor Day sunbathers — but for Hurricane Dorian. Most restaurants, beach shops and hotels were stacking chairs, aligning sandbags and turning off the vacancy signs. Sunday traffic on State Road A1A through Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach was with a purpose other than vacationing. Brevard County’s barrier island evacuation notice had been for early Sunday morning, resulting in many people clearing out on Saturday. But as Dorian has defied forecasts, officials moved the notice to Monday morning. Cocoa Beach police said the notice is not mandatory but that emergency calls won’t be responded to when hurricane conditions arrive. “It’s not that I want to be here, but I don’t have a car and I’ve got eight cats,” said Art Robinson, 71, who lives in a mobile home in Cape Canaveral, just north of Cocoa Beach. A neighbor, Chris Jennings, gave him a ride to the gas pumps at a Circle K because that’s what neighbors do, he said. Robinson filled four, 10-gallon cans with gas for a generator he bought used in 2004 when Hurricane Jeanne hit. Jennings, 55, had been ordered to clear out a storage shed bec...
