@AsWeTravel has a great article on packing your carry-on for a flight. Don’t skip this step:

Before you start working on your carry on checklist, find out exactly what your airline allows you to board with. Most of them are pretty generous when it comes to carry-ons. The average restriction is one bag of 15lbs measuring 22inx16inx8in.

@Dappered collected a ton of sub-$400 watches worth a look. Our favorite? The Seiko 5:

Small in stature and price, but big on variety, quality, and wearability. It’s reliable automatic Japanese movement features both the day and the date, which is a very practical thing to have, and the watch allows you to use a quick-set feature so you don’t have to spin the crown a million times to set the date or day. It also has an exhibition caseback. If you’ve never owned a mechanical or automatic watch, this is a great watch to get your feet wet. A complete classic.

And then there’s @Android and their @Oreo, Android O update. This could be something:

Project Treble

The biggest change to the foundations of Android to date: a modular architecture that makes it easier and faster for hardware makers to deliver Android updates.
