A few months ago I came across Paper Shoot—a company that produces environmentally friendly digital cameras, specifically catering to the aesthetic of vintage reel photography, all while minimizing the fuss and waste the hobby can generate.
In ancient Rome and medieval Europe, sumptuary laws (enacted to regulate excessive spending) prohibited people from going overboard with wearing gold. Those who weren’t part of the noble family couldn’t even think about wrapping their wrist in gold, as it was reserved for those born with a silver spoon in their mouth—the elite and royalty.

Whenever Apple sets a revamped iOS in motion, it comes with a slew of brand-new apps and functionalities; iOS 16.2 is no different. This next-generation software offers a grab bag of features, like Apple Music Sing (a sing-along karaoke feature exclusive to the Apple Music app), the sleep widget (which monitors users’ sleeping habits) and the medications widget (which keeps users on top of their medications).
Setting up a brand is a challenging but rewarding endeavor. Diversifying your product or service portfolio is crucial to reaching new customers and reducing risks.

This year, luxury watches overtook Bitcoin and vintage cars to become the most coveted investment option among the three. Though watch prices have fallen since the infamous crypto crash, they are still significantly up from their prices in 2019. In fact, during the pandemic, people used their saved up money to invest in watches, including Rolex and Patek Philippe. Renowned watch brands caught everyone’s attention as their resale values surged.

Business boomed for streaming platforms when most of the world became home-bound. In 2020, the number of streaming subscriptions across platforms crossed one billion worldwide.
We Need to Fix the Broken Female Healthcare System—In Conversation with the CEO of OM, Anca Griffiths
“After I had my first child, I was struck by how uninformed I was about my body for this postpartum period. A few things kind of made me think, how is it that (the) information is not accessible?
