You can also set up tasks in the companion app for your child to complete. From feeding the pets to cleaning up their toys — any other number of tasks, you come up with. You can then tie those tasks to a digital coin value that your child can earn for rewards. My wife and I set up rewards like a piece of candy, screen time, choice of dinner, and more than my son can "buy" with the tokens he earns for the tasks he completes.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale.

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
