(Looks like David Barnard is quite a fan of Nocs’ NS2 Air Monitors. And while those do support AirPlay, they don’t seem to be available as of February 2018.)

Review: CalDigit TS3 Plus is the new king of Thunderbolt docks
"Ports are what can make or break a docking station. I don’t think CalDigit will disappoint in that regard with its dizzying array of fifteen ports. The important ones include five USB Type-A ports (for all your older peripherals), a new SD card slot out the front, digital optical audio output for superior audio quality and (for the first time in a Thunderbolt 3 dock) a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port capable of up to 10GBps transfer speed."

Track Hyper-Local Weather Conditions With the Netamo Weather Station – MacStories
“I’ve been very pleased with the Netatmo Weather Station since I started using it almost two months ago. It may be unnecessary, but I enjoy knowing that the weather conditions I’m seeing in the app are what’s happening immediately outside my back door. It’s also been interesting to observe trends in the data I’ve collected, like rising CO2 levels when we are cooking dinner or dropping humidity levels during the recent cold weather in Chicago, which alerted me to the fact that the humidifier on my furnace has died. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised by the quality of its companion app. If you want up to the minute, hyper-local weather data or enjoy collecting and pouring over weather data, I highly recommend the Netatmo Weather station."

These Are The 6 Best Face Powders Ever
Among other powder recommendations:
"Make Up For Ever Microfinish HD Powder

"Everything you've heard about it is true. The softest, finest texture. The most hardcore shine-removing and optical blurring abilities. The longest wear. This is truly the creme de la creme of translucent powders, and it comes in both a loose and pressed version.

"*choirs of angels singing*

"This is like a real life Photoshop tool. Blended on top of my normal makeup, it almost totally erased small acne scares and pores. It feels so amazing on my face to the point where I can’t wait to touch it up--but I don’t need to touch it up very much, because it easily lasts eight sweaty hours in the Chicago summer heat. It’s THAT good."

"It's called Disciplined Minds, and it's one of the most useful books I've read in maybe 15 years.

(IIRC there's a weird parenthetical bit on male violence near the end that needed editing but it's largely excellent.)

"Anyway it gets to the systems that coerce reasonable people into ignoring (and defending) ethical breaches

"It's been awhile so I'm paraphrasing but—ethical pushback within professional systems gets characterized as crazy, emotional, unreasonable, and suuuuper unprofessional. Maybe this sounds familiar."

Weego Jump Starter 44 — Tools and Toys
“Having to jump start your car sucks. Being stranded with no one around to help you do it sucks even more.

“You should keep a portable starter like the Weego 44 on hand for such occasions. It packs enough power to jump start any vehicle with an engine up to 7 liters (gas) or 3.5 liters (diesel). Its so-called “Smarty Clamps” are not only ergonomic and spark-proof, they’re totally foolproof to use, featuring an in-line gizmo that gives off a series of lights and sounds (which are easily heard over traffic noise) to walk you through a successful jump, every time.”

(Some recommendations for Chrome extensions from Brett Terpstra:)
"Tab Manager
This one scratches an itch for me. I use Toby and Pinboard to organize tabs, which is way easier if I can just save a whole window, but I hate having my sessions include irrelevant pages, and sorting them all is a pain. With Tab Manager, you can see all of your tabs as a list and manipulate them in myriad ways (close, move, re-order).”

"Tab Extract
Allows you to extract tabs based on a title search to a new window from the url bar. It’s handier than it might sound, especially for use with any of the tab-set-saving extensions."

software recommendation - Best app to switch between all open windows - Ask Different
(This question was originally posted in 2010, but there have been a number of recommendations in the comments since then.)
"After 4 years of being a Mac user, there is only one thing that I still miss from the Windows world, and that is being able to switch with a single keystroke between all open windows in the computer.

"What is the best app or utility, free or not, for accomplishing that?"

What product(s) changed your life? - grab bag products | Ask MetaFilter
P"Recently, I've realized that buying one good product to solve a need is WAY better than trying to make do or piecemeal a solution. Often, they are products I'm not even aware exist. Recent examples include:

"-- bug lotion instead of spray. Eliminates getting it in my toddler's mouth.
-- cord tacos to control my unwieldy cord collection.
-- a beach wagon to carry 700 pounds of stuff and a cranky kid, instead of trying to stuff crap in various bags."

The best cheap stuff in my kitchen - BrettTerpstra.com
"This is possibly my favorite spice cabinet improvement I’ve ever made. The 3-tier rack pulls forward and down to eye level. The front row of it can even be top-labelled jars, then, which is great for the stubby little containers that fit better packed together and you can read the fronts anyway. The shape of it leaves space behind it when it’s collapsed up into the cabinet for a row of less frequently-used spices. Like some kind of secret stash, shrouded in mystery."

Can you recommend a complete surround sound set up for me, within my $15,000 budget? - HomeTheaterHifi.com
"Monica is looking a full surround sound system and not just a really good stereo setup. The use will be 70% Movies and 30% Music.

"Monica would like to keep the expenditure under $15k and Design/style is important, but not at the expense of function. Having said that, the horizontal space is kinda limited to the length of a 14′ wall – if a speaker sits in front of a cabinet or 9′ if it sits in front of a wall."

Also:
"For the interconnect cables between your components, both for audio, video and frankly speaker, I would refer you to either Blue Jeans Cable, RAM Electronics or Monoprice. Each sells decent quality cable with Monoprice being the value leader of the bunch. I tend to like Blue Jeans Cable personally."

Falke Womens Berlin Sensitive Socks | Wool Mix Socks
(I think these might be the socks that Adrian quite likes—the ones with separate “L” and “R” socks.)
"Falke Berlin Sensitive socks with finest skin-friendly cotton on the inside and climate regulating merino wool on the outside of the sock. Perfect fit through fine elastane thread and comfort top, which is non-constricting.

"Anatomically shaped left and right toe progression (marked with R and L). Pressure free hand-linked toe. Reinforced stress zone for perfect durability."

Pittsburgh Needs Eated.: Black Bottom Walnut Praline Bars
"These bars were a big hit at work. They remind me of Abigail Johnson Dodge's Chocolate Chip Brownie Double Deckers from The Weekend Baker, but they're a little more sophisticated. The chocolate layer is richer, and the topping has a stronger butterscotch taste. I used toasted walnuts, but I think I would have preferred pecans.

"This is the best brownie variation i've tried in a while. Cook's Illustrated's Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies were a close second. I like Alice Medrich and Emily Luchetti's brownies well enough, but I still haven't found a recipe I can call my favorite. I can never get the exact texture and flavor i'm looking for."

Motor Trend magazine is doing something interesting on the Internet
"THE AMAZING THING about this entire operation is “Motor Trend On Demand” is a $5/month paywall that simply gives you a handful of 3–5 minute daily episodes from a few shows plus a one-month early look at the full show episodes, which still get posted to YouTube eventually. About 75% of the content in the app once you’ve paid is simply repackaged videos you could already watch on YouTube for free. Their Apple TV app lacks a recent uploads/updates feature, their iOS apps can be a bit buggy, but still, I watch almost every show and feel like $5/month is a pretty good deal considering the hours and hours of enjoyment I get from it."

Houseplants & How to Care For Them | Apartment Therapy
"The process of choosing a plant isn't a simple equation. It's a funky formula involving many variables: light conditions in your home, your style preferences, plant behaviors, amount of space you can devote to another living thing, and your track record with maintenance, among others. Ask yourself some key questions, however, and you'll find the path to the perfect plant for you."

The Best Umbrella | The Wirecutter
"Last Updated: March 15, 2017
We’ve tested 16 more umbrellas against our current picks in recent blizzard/thunderstorm/snow conditions and have all-new recommendations. The Repel Easy Touch is our new top pick because it costs only a few dollars more than the Lewis N. Clark, but feels much sturdier. Our new runner-up pick to replace the discontinued REI Travel Umbrella is the AmazonBasics Automatic Travel Umbrella With Wind Vent. We still like our former top pick, the Lewis N. Clark Travel Umbrella, as an affordable alternative. It’s not quite as durable as the others, but can often be had for less than $15. Finally, we’re also adding a golf-style stick umbrella, the Totes Auto Open Wooden Stick Umbrella. You can read more about all our new picks, as well as other options we liked that didn’t quite make the cut, when we update our full review in early April."

VPN Recs? - privacy web | Ask MetaFilter
"I've used Private Internet Access for several years and I've been very pleased. Pretty low cost, high standards, and good privacy practices.

"I'm going to bet that you're going to get a lot of other recommendations for them and for good reason."

[…]

"Seconding PIA, it works a treat on macOS Sierra."

[…]

"I use Private Internet Access as well, but this is entirely based on the recommendation of a friend who does more research into these things. One thing I will say is that its Android app doesn't work on my phone, but with the settings they provide I can still connect my phone when needed. It used to be good for getting around geographic restrictions for Netflix but not anymore. But that was never one of my main reasons for getting it so in my case it wasn't a big loss."

Bicentennial Rub -- Spices at Penzeys
(Caitey PenzyMoog recommended this:)
"The rich flavor and golden color make this our favorite blend for turkey, duck, goose and pork roast. Perfect for the grill, sprinkle heavily on rotisserie-style chicken or pork roast, also on thick-cut pork chops and beef short ribs. The larger chunks of spices in our Bicentennial Rub also make it perfect for any large cut that takes an hour or longer to cook, and the beautiful golden color can't be beat. Try on roast leg of lamb, baked or roasted whole stuffed chicken, Yankee pot roast and thick-cut pork or veal chops."
