Watch Bon Appetit's Claire Saffitz nearly break. Again. This time over Pringles.
The pasty chef tackled the recreation by first breaking down the texture of the snack: She noticed that Pringles are more of a "potato crisp" made of a powder composite than traditional thinly sliced potatoes.
"This is gonna be a project that's more about process and construction than flavor," she noted.
She rolled a combination of rice flour, ground potatoes, and cornstarch through a pasta press to nail down the signature paper-thin texture.
Next challenge: getting the shape down.
When drying the dough over a rolling pin and frying it between two slotted spoons didn't work, she went back to adjusting the potato composite. Eventually, she made a mold by hacking apart a sieve. Read more...More about Viral Videos, Pringles, Bon Appetit, Culture, and Web Culture
In the end times, when the Earth is populated solely by roving bands of marauders, at least we'll know Apple was able to find new ways to profit from the iPhone.
The environmental nonprofit CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) dropped its latest report on Tuesday, and it's very depressing. The group asked more than 7,000 companies to share the risks and opportunities that come with climate change, reported Bloomberg. And it turns out there is money to be made even in a world ravaged by drought and storms.
Apple notes that "as people begin to experience severe weather events with greater frequency, we expect an increasing need for confidence and preparedness in the arena of personal safety and the well-being of loved ones." Read more...More about Tech, Google, Apple, Climate Change, and Tech

The results of a new survey — conducted in November 2018 by the University of Chicago's Energy Policy Institute and the research organization The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research — found that nearly half of Americans said today's climate science "is more convincing than five years ago, with extreme weather driving their views."
Overall, seven in 10 Americans reported that climate change is happening.
“The results of the survey demonstrate that most Americans consider climate change a reality and acknowledge that human activity is at least somewhat responsible,” Trevor Tompson, director of The AP-NORC Center, said in a statement.
