If you’ve got some of Apple’s awesome little AirPods, you should know that you can change how they work; you could adjust what happens when you double-tap them, for example. That’s the subject of today’s Quick Tip!

There are only a few days left to get ready to watch the August 21st solar eclipse—the first eclipse in nearly 100 years with a path of totality that stretches from coast to coast in the continental United States.

We just updated our list with more resources including an interactive Web-based eclipse map, and additional places where you may still be able to find protective eyewear.
You know how you’ve got an Atari app stored on your Apple Watch and you need to get it over to your Atari 2600? Hello? Anyone? OK, fine. No one needs to do this, but YouTuber napabar didn’t let something as petty as need stop him. No, he was motivated by could.

The August 21st solar eclipse is fast approaching, which means time is running out to get ready for the event. I’ve already said how important the right protective eyewear is and I’ll say it again: If you don’t use ISO 12312-2 certified eye protection to watch the eclipse you’ll damage your eyes and may go blind. Eye protection that meets the ISO standard is getting harder to find with the eclipse only days away, but the American Astronomical Society has an awesome list of glasses and retailers that may have them on its website. If you don’t have your eclipse glasses yet this is a handy resource to track some down before next Monday.
