After-loss tech is a genius idea

Hearing about the after-loss tech apps combined with human touch was very impressive. I had a very difficult time dealing with bureaucracy after my mother died, wish I knew about this kind of tech.

Spoken Edition FTW

It's great to be able to digest articles on the go thanks to this service. The half-dozen vocies that read me the latest WIRED articles have become SO familiar to me, I often hear their voices when I'm reading articles on my tablet!

Thanks for everything you read, you guys.

Pretzel logic

Some good reporting on tech issues, but with a stunning lack of balance in political and cultural terms. The pretzel logic used to justify censorship is also alarming and can’t really be understood unless you accept you’re not capable of deciding for yourself what to believe, and that there is only one view on issues. That view is, of course, whatever the censors decide that day.
