I spent the weekend of July 8–9 up north at Higgins Lake with lots of family, mainly celebrating my grandma’s 70th birthday but also engaging in a series of other activities that I get to do at most once yearly.
I flew across the lake in my (hilarious) uncle Bob’s speed boat. I put up a good fight against uncle Bob, another uncle and my dad playing HORSE on a barely functional basketball hoop after dark on the beach. I hung on for dear life while tubing with family friends and cousins, repeatedly flying off and enduring a few moments in the freezing water for punishment.
Here’s the thing about Apple “killing the headphone jack” by phasing it out of their smartphone line: They didn’t actually kill anything.
Just because the port is gone from the company’s most profitable device, and though other major companies may follow suit in some fashion, doesn’t mean we can expect Apple to do away with the 3.5-millimeter hole on its other devices.
The unique Monster Energy Cup took place last night in Las Vegas and saw the current and future faces of Supercross do battle on a unique track inside and outside Sam Boyd Stadium.
The premier “Cup” class, featuring the sport’s biggest names including reigning Supercross champion Ryan Dungey and new Lucas Oil Pro Motocross champion Ken Roczen, hit the track three times throughout the night. The format is much simpler than the one utilized during a traditional evening of Supercross: three races/main events. Win all three, you leave $1 million richer.
