British Airways forces man to sit in wet urine-soaked seat for 11 hours

BoingBoing - 11 hours 18 min ago

Here we go again. Another airplane nightmare. It's as if the airlines are competing for the Most Horrific Flight award.

British businessman Andrew Wilkinson boarded a British Airways plane from London to Johannesburg and found that his seat was wet. On further inspection (or sniff) he realized it was urine. He told the flight attendant, and instead of moving him to an empty seat (his seat was in coach, which was full, but there was an available seat in first class), the flight attendant gave him some wipes and told him to clean it himself. (WTF!!)

According to Inc.:

Wilkinson wasn't upgraded. He was left in the stinking, urine-soaked seat for 11 hours.

The flight attendant even had the gall to say to Wilkinson: "You are going to work me hard on this flight, aren't you?"

One might imagine that someone in so-called customer service would, indeed, work hard to try and rectify the situation.

This doesn't appear to have been the case here.

Wilkinson tried to put a plastic bag on the seat, as well as a blanket. A request for a second blanket fell on deaf ears, he said.

It wasn't until he tweeted about it later that he received some points from the airline. But Wilkinson says a proper apology would have been better. This story is so absurd I checked other sources (Mirror and Daily Mail) to make sure Inc. wasn't cracking some sort of mid-year April Fool's joke.

Wolfgang Puck's pressure oven cooks stuff crazy fast

BoingBoing - 11 hours 25 min ago

Toaster ovens are the perfect appliance for small things like toasted sandwiches and roasted garlic (try it!), but anything more involved usually requires a full-sized conventional oven.

However, despite its small size, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven can handle anything from baked pastries to broiled meats. This kitchen appliance has a minimal countertop footprint, and cooks food nearly twice as fast as conventional ovens without sacrificing flavor. The secret lies in its watertight, pressurized seal. By trapping moisture inside, it’s able to warm up considerably faster. Since it combines the power of a pressure cooker with the form of an oven, you can use it for almost anything — baking personal pizzas, roasting vegetables, reheating leftovers, what have you. It’s even got enough space for a small turkey, so you can eat an intimate Thanksgiving dinner without the 4+ hours of constant basting and temperature checking.

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is being offered in our store for $116.99.

MacBook Pro Thunderbolt 3 adapter guide: How to connect an iPhone, display, hard drive, and more

MacWorld - 11 hours 34 min ago

Editor's note: We've updated this article with a video to help you with your buying decisions.

The new MacBook Pro comes with two or four external ports, depending on the model you pick. But those ports are only of one type: Thunderbolt 3, which is compatible with USB-C.

But you probably have devices that use USB-A, Thunderbolt 1, Thunderbolt 2, DisplayPort, HDMI, or something else. How do you connect these devices? With an adapter.

If you’re planning to buy a new MacBook Pro, make sure you set aside a considerable amount of cash for the adapters you need. Apple doesn’t include any in the box, except for a power adapter.

A 500GB Samsung 850 Evo is $150 today

MacWorld - 11 hours 35 min ago

Amazon has a deal today on one of our longtime favorite solid-state drives: The 500GB Samsung 850 Evo is available for $150. While that’s definitely not the lowest price we’ve seen—during the 2016 holiday season, you could get one for about $135—it’s the best price we’ve seen in awhile. SSD prices are still inflated right now.

Samsung’s 850 Evo has been around for close to three years, but we’re still big fans of this SSD. In our 2014 review, we gave it a high rating when 3D NAND technology at the consumer level was still a new idea. It also has great performance and longevity, as well as being backed by a solid five-year warranty. The 850’s pricing was also competitive when it came out, and it’s slowly becoming better as Samsung introduces newer storage (like its 960 Evo M.2 drives).
