Driving Sports TV
Published on Jul 23, 2018
The new 2018 Mazda6 Signature brings a new level of sophistication to Mazda's mid-size sedan. Price as tested: $36,140 including destination. In this review we test the 0-60 time, check the brakes, kick the tires (metaphorically) and try out all the new and updated features. Engine is a 2.5-liter turbo (227hp, 310tq) with a 6-speed automatic powering the front wheels.

Daring Fireball: Ben Brooks: Mobile Safari Content Blocker Evaluations, September 2018
Ben Brooks:
I ran another round of content blocker testing for Mobile Safari in order to take a look at which ones are the “best” right now. To be fair: it’s really hard to find these content blockers on the App Store now, so I grabbed the ones which looked the most popular to me (top lists, and top search results) and then did the testing to see which was the best.
Now, I am using a particular word choice here: best. In the past I mostly evaluated on speed or website size reductions. This was problematic because a content blocker could work out to be very fast, while still breaking the usability of the site.
I love his subjective focus on “best”, and agree with his conclusions. Firefox Focus is an interesting option because it acts both as a system-wide Safari content blocker and as a standalone always-private web browser app. No special private or incognito mode — it’s always private, with no saved cookies, no history, etc.
I’d love to see someone do a survey of the field for Mac content blockers. (Brooks is all-in on iOS and doesn’t use a Mac any more.)

The iPhone XS vs a Cinema Camera: Can You Tell the Difference?
As a filmmaker, I come across many different types of cameras, lenses, and of course all the peripherals that come with movie making. For commercial shoots I am currently shooting on a Canon C200 cinema camera using the Canon RAW lite codec. The results are incredible.
A few weeks ago I picked up the new iPhone XS max and as a photographer and film maker the first thing I did was open up the camera app to see how it looked. To be honest, I was actually shocked. It looked awesome.
Over the next few days I took a few videos and found myself actually watching them back on the phone and being pretty impressed. I would then watch a video I shot on the C200 and to be honest I would question which one I liked more. So that was it, I just had to test them out.

Jared Goff’s stats eerily similar to Kurt Warner’s from 2001 MVP year
Jared Goff has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the NFL since his rookie season. Two years ago, he was dubbed a “bust” by many after seven shaky starts as a rookie, getting sacked 26 times in those games. Last season, he turned into a Pro Bowler, leading the NFL in yards per completion and adjusted net yards per attempt.
As good as he was in 2017, though, he’s better now than ever before. Goff ranks in the top three in several key stats, including a league-high 127.3 passer rating and 10.5 yards per attempt. According to Bovada, only one player in the NFL has better odds to win MVP than Goff, and that’s Patrick Mahomes.
Goff’s numbers look eerily similar to a former Rams MVP through four games, which is both a good and bad sign. Take a look at the tweet below, and click it to view the full stat comparison.

Banktivity: the best app for managing personal finances and budgets
Banktivity 6
APP STORE $64.99
There are many options (and opinions) when it comes to budgeting apps for Mac users. We’ve put many of them through the ringer and believe Banktivity 6 (formerly iBank) has the right blend of powerful features and ease of use that can help just about anyone take control of their finances.
When it comes to personal finance software, there are a lot of options available, along with a lot of very strong opinions on which one is the best.
In fact, when we ran our survey asking what app or service people currently used, the number one response — despite our attempt to nail down the 8 most popular options — was Other with 34.7%. This illustrates two things:
budgeting is very personal, and
the ecosystem is very broad
People are just as passionate about their budgeting software as they are about their artisanal to-do list apps. Everyone has their own system that works for them. That also means that what works for me may not work for you, but we did notice that successful financial management systems seem to all share a few common characteristics:
The ability to add transactions quickly and seamlessly.
The ability to import/sync bank and credit card statements.
The ability to review accounts and financial status at a glance.
You will find these key features at the heart of just about every personal finance app. The difference is usually in how they are implemented, and in this review we compared them side-by-side to see what worked…and what didn’t.

The Best Packing Cubes: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
After testing seven more sets of popular packing cubes, we still think the Eagle Creek Pack-It Original Cube Set is the best choice for most travelers for the third year running, thanks to its functional design and excellent build quality. Its simple design features high-quality fabrics and allows you to easily organize and access your clothing and small items.
Our pick
Eagle Creek Pack-It Original Cube Set
Well-built with easy access
Simple and solidly constructed, the Eagle Creek Pack-It Original Cube Set is an ideal way to keep organized for short trips.
$28 $22 from Amazon
You save $6 (21%)
The three-piece Eagle Creek Pack-It Original Cube Set keeps a week’s worth of clothes organized efficiently to move easily from suitcase to hotel dresser: The full-size cube is great for shirts or insulating layers, the half cube is perfect for socks and underwear, and the quarter cube is the perfect size for travel extras like chargers, batteries, and cables. They’re made of 300-denier polyester lined with nylon so they feel nice to the touch and stay upright when empty, for easy packing. The Pack-It’s windows are made of the finest woven mesh we tested—better for resisting snags—and its smooth zippers close easily around all corners, even when the cube is overstuffed. We also like that they open all the way so you can easily access everything inside if you place them in a drawer. They’re available in black, blue, red, and usually a few limited-edition prints at any given moment.

The Best Wall Outlets With USB Charging Ports for 2018: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
After researching 14 options and testing five, we found that the Topgreener TU21558AC outlet with USB Type-A and Type-C is the best wall outlet with USB charging ports for mobile devices such as phones, tablets, and e-readers. Its ports can charge two devices as fast as possible, and since one of them is USB-C, it will still be the best outlet, as your newer devices will be able to take advantage of this newer port. It’s also easy to install safely yourself.
Our pick
Topgreener TU21558AC
The best wall outlet with USB
This is the only outlet that can charge both a standard USB-A device and newer USB-C devices at full speeds simultaneously. It’s the most versatile way to upgrade outlets around your home.
$26 from Amazon
We like the Topgreener TU21558AC because both its standard USB-A port and its newer USB-C port go as fast as any plug-in wall charger—2.4 A (12 W) and 3 A (15 W), respectively—and unlike all the other options we tried, it won’t slow down even if you use the ports at the same time. And like any good wall outlet, our pick is UL listed and compliant with the National Electrical Code, so it’s as safe as a standard outlet when installed correctly.

Apple iPhone XS Max Camera Takes #2 Spot at DxOMark with Score of 105
Apple’s new iPhone XS Max has received a score of 105 by the camera review lab DxOMark, putting the camera quality in the #2 spot behind the Huawei P20 Pro and its leading score of 109.
The new iPhone score is a significant improvement from the iPhone X, which received a mark of 97. Here’s what the top of the DxOMark mobile leaderboard now looks like...
“The [iPhone XS Max] camera’s highlight is its outstanding video quality in bright light,” DxOMark writes. “Footage recorded outdoors on a bright day shows a very wide dynamic range, vivid colors, and high levels of detail. In addition, a very effective image stabilization system keeps camera shake to a minimum, making the new iPhone an enticing option for any mobile video shooter.”
“Our testers were also pleased by the still image quality in bright light, which is excellent all around. Exposure in outdoor images tends to be spot on, levels of detail are high, and colors are pleasant.”

The Best Stand Mixer for 2018: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
After five years and over 50 hours of testing, we still think that the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is the absolute best stand mixer you can get for its performance, versatility, and price. It whips up cakes, cookies, and creams with ease, and can knead sticky bread and pizza doughs without straining. A stand mixer is a great way to take your baking game to the next level, but if you’re an occasional baker looking for something more compact and affordable, you may want to try a hand mixer instead.
Our pick
KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
The best stand mixer
This classic mixer can tackle nearly any recipe without knocking around on the counter. It’s easier to use than many other tilt-head mixers, and is one of the quietest we tested.
$280 $210 from Amazon
You save $70 (25%)
$280 from JCPenney
$210 from Walmart
$475 from Macy’s
We’ve been using the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer for more than five years, and we can definitively say that it is still the best for most home bakers and cooks. The Artisan is a sturdy machine that can power through thick doughs and aerate light batters without straining. It’s easy to use and clean, and it’s built to last. KitchenAid also makes attachments like a meat grinder or pasta maker that you can use with this machine, and as an added bonus, the Artisan comes in a huge variety of fun colors.

The Best Tape Measure: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
After dropping, extending, and scrubbing the blades of 17 different tape measures with 60-grit sandpaper, we found that the best one is the classic 25-foot Stanley PowerLock Tape Measure. It’s our pick after 45 hours of research and three annual updates to this guide, including another 15 hours of work in 2015 testing it against new tools. That’s because the PowerLock delivers the best basic combination of durability, ease of use, and accuracy—and all for a very low price. In fact, the PowerLock is one of the least expensive tape measures that we’ve looked at.
Our pick
25-foot Stanley PowerLock Tape Measure
The best tape measure
The PowerLock is easy to use, durable, affordable, accurate, and capable of doing its job without additional features that aren’t necessary for around-the-house work.
$10 from Amazon
$10 from Home Depot
The weakest part of any tape measure is the blade, and the PowerLock’s is more durable than nearly all the others’ we tested. The thumb-operated blade lock is smooth, strong, and easy to operate with one hand, unlike some other more cumbersome models. Its blade is a quarter-inch slimmer than most contractor’s tools, so it’s easy to lay flat for marking measurements, yet still stiff enough to stand out unsupported for nearly 8 feet, which is plenty. It’s a basic tool whose pared-down simplicity makes it light, tough, accurate, easy to handle, and affordable. Taking all this into consideration to name the tool that gives you the best value, the other tapes—which often cost more—all fell short compared to this one.

New data from A4AI looks at the price of 1GB of mobile data across 60 countries – World Wide Web Foundation
This is the latest data pricing research from the Alliance for Affordable Internet. To see the data in full, visit
Survey after survey shows that the high cost of accessing and using the internet remains one of the major factors keeping billions offline. As the Web Foundation, through our Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), works to develop and implement the policies needed to reduce prices and enable those offline to afford to connect, current data on the level of broadband affordability across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is critical to tracking progress and impact.  
Based on A4AI’s understanding of affordability, where a 1GB mobile prepaid broadband plan is priced at 2% or less of average monthly income — a definition adopted earlier this year by the UN Broadband Commission — we assessed the price of 1GB of mobile prepaid data in 60 LMICs. What does this newest data show?

Sofa Buying Advice From the People Who Design and Make Them: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
Nobody buys a house without researching the neighborhood and inspecting the foundation, plumbing, and electrical. Yet many people drop serious money on a sofa without understanding what goes into a well-made piece of upholstered furniture. It’s a leap of faith that often leads to buyer’s remorse and one too many “for sale – hardly used” Craigslist postings.
The quality of the frame, suspension, cushioning, and upholstery are what separate a sofa that will last 10 to 20 years from one that will start to wobble or look dingy after only a few. To understand what distinguishes quality components from inferior ones I toured BSC Furniture sofa factory with owner Joshua Siegel, the manufacturer responsible for BenchMade Modern’s line of upholstered seating, followed by a visit to Modernica’s facilities in Los Angeles guided by Jay Novak, co-owner and president of the modernist furniture manufacturer. In 2017, Wirecutter senior editor Christine Cyr Clisset toured the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams factory, based in Taylorsville, North Carolina.

Sofa Buying Guide: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
After 45 hours of research, including visiting three furniture factories, interviewing industry experts, and parking ourselves on nearly every sofa we’ve seen, we can tell you exactly what separates great sofas from future curbside donations. This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to bring home a durable, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture.
Finding the right sofa for your space and budget begins with deciding what type and style you want. Just as important, you’ll need to determine what size sofa will fit in your home (including through the delivery path of doorways, hallways, stairs, and other exterior/interior obstructions). Then consider how many people you want to seat, and what to avoid (and invest in) if pets or kids will regularly use the sofa. We cover how to check for quality construction, how much you should expect to spend, and when you can get the best deals. We’ve also put together a buying checklist that you can take with you when you’re shopping, to help you remember the most important details.
