Your Home Workstation Needs These For Productivity & Comfort

Working from home was a dream for many. Before Coronavirus, or COVID, many of us looked forward to the convenience of working from home. Not having to commute, not having to spend money on fuel and there is just something about the familiar warmth of a home. But with the pandemic switching things around rather rapidly, work from home, or lovingly known as WFH, has become a dream come true for many. Yet, a lot of us remain unprepared. The thing is, with the pandemic still showing no signs of going away anytime soon, you need to be prepared about this for the long haul. You might be working from home at least this year, and that’s true for most organizations in most parts of the world. Some forward-looking companies, such as Facebook, are already clear that no one returns to office before July next year, at

Sam Fisher is the best Rainbow Six Siege operator in years

Dominate the meta with these Siege guides

In keeping with Ubisoft’s tradition of trolling desperate Splinter Cell fans, Rainbow Six Siege Operation Shadow Legacy’s new attacker is the man behind the night vision goggles: Sam Fisher. A major Clancy-verse crossover breaks new ground for Siege’s lore, which has until now completely focused on its 56 original characters. With an arsenal of intel behind him, Sam is the most fun I’ve had with a new operator in years.

Sam isn’t joining Rainbow from a CTU—he’s in something called the “Rainbow Operation Staff” as an instructor. It’s unclear if the ROS will be the designation of future crossover characters or a one-off for Sam. Cool premise, legendary character, exciting crossover… so why did Ubi codename him “Zero”?

That’s not a callsign Sam Fisher has ever gone by, as far as I can tell. I guess it’s made up for his Siege debut?

Professionals get that smooth-as-glass look from their video by using a three-axis stabilizer — a handheld gadget that flattens out all the jitter from your video no matter what kind of side-to-side, up-and-down or back-and-forth movement you make. It’s a modern version of the Steadicam, and is an essential tool for stepping up your video quality (just ask any social media influencer). These gadgets can get pricey, but the Zhiyun Crane M2 is usually priced at $269. Right now, you can get the Zhiyun Crane M2 for $161 when you apply discount code CRM2DPLS at checkout. That’ll save you $108.

You can find this gimbal at a variety of retailers, though this is the best price I was able to find by a wide margin — it’s full price at B&H and selling for $199 on Amazon.   

The Zhiyun Crane M2 is designed for smaller cameras; it’ll accommodate

Lawyers say Jeffrey Epstein suicide affects jail conditions

Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite accused of abetting sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged abuse of underage girls, is being intensely watched in a New York City jail in an apparent effort to keep her from killing herself as Epstein did in another jail last year, her lawyers told a judge in a new court filing.

That scrutiny until recently included Maxwell, 58, being “subjected to suicide watch protocols.”

Those have included “being woken up every few hours during the night and being forced to wear special clothing” as she is kept alone in a special housing unit at the Metropolitan Detention Center, her lawyers wrote.

And “she continues to be surveilled 24 hours a day by security cameras and by multiple prison guards, many of whom do not appear to be regular MDC personnel,” the

New audit finds more problems during Hawley’s tenure as Missouri attorney general | Politics

Galloway’s office found evidence of 11 in-person and phone meetings between Hawley’s staff and his political consultants from January to July 2017. Over that same period, Hawley’s campaign paid a combined $141,000 to the political advisers OnMessage Inc., First Tuesday and HLC Strategic LLC.

The earlier audit also said employees did not follow office policy when they used personal email accounts, calendars and phones “to conduct official business, communicate, and schedule meetings.”

And, it said Hawley used a state vehicle and a driver for some trips without documenting the purpose of the trip. A driver told the auditor that on Dec. 16, 2017, he drove Hawley and his wife, Erin, to Kansas City for a Chiefs football game.

In response, his attorney said there was no evidence Hawley “ever engaged in any misconduct or violated Missouri laws or ethics rules.”

The new audit also found a lack of oversight for

Dropbox launches password manager, computer backup, and secure ‘vaults’ out of beta

Dropbox is officially launching a handful of new consumer features out of beta today, along with some new tools for businesses.

The cloud storage giant first introduced its password manager — replete with a standalone mobile app for Android and iOS — back in June. Similar to other password management apps on the market, Dropbox Passwords stores and encrypts users’ online passwords and syncs them across all devices (desktop and mobile) so users don’t have to remember multiple login credentials.

Dropbox Passwords can also suggest strong, randomly generated, individual passwords for your online services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and Dropbox itself.

Dropbox Passwords is the result of last year’s acquisition of Massachusetts-based Valt, which swiftly shuttered its own apps ahead of integration with Dropbox. Dropbox Passwords is available to everyone on a Dropbox Plus or Professional subscription from today.

As SpaceX prepares to launch Starlink, a big question facing the satellite internet service is how fast it’ll operate in the real world. 

Well, there’s actually some speed test data that shows Starlink can deliver download speeds from 11Mbps to 60Mbps. Apparently, some lucky beta users have been trying out Starlink on Ookla’s Speedtest website. (Note: Ookla is owned by Ziff Davis, PCMag.com’s parent company.)

As Ars Technica points out, users on Reddit have been crawling Ookla’s website and spotted about a dozen speed tests registered to Starlink. The tests, which were mostly conducted earlier this month,
