This Cyber Monday PopSockets deal is the PERFECT stocking stuffer

The holiday shopping season is upon us! In the age of free overnight shipping and sweet deals on everything from Android phones to disinfectant wipes running every single day this time of year, who actually makes wish lists anymore? So how do you holiday shop for anyone on your list?

Answer: you buy something small, useful, and fun. As phones continue to get bigger and bigger — with the exception of the fantastically compact (and on sale) Galaxy Z Flip 3 — it gets harder and hard to comfortably hold these phones, especially one-handed. This leads to an unfortunate RSI (repetitive stress injury) called smartphone pinky or pinky propping, and trust me when I say it is painful.

So kill two birds with one stone and buy the loved ones in your life a PopSocket, which can save your phone, your hands, and your Christmas morning. PopSockets are universally compatible, they make it easier to hold your phone whether it's as small as a Pixel 4a or big as an S21 Ultra, and they come in more designs than you can even imagine.

Best of all, they're basically all on sale right now!

PopSockets PopGrips (Save 15% at Amazon)

From $7 at Amazon

From the classic solid colors to licensed designs by Disney, DC, the NFL, and more, there is quite literally a PopGrip out there for everyone on your Christmas list. There are also premium textures and materials including leather, aluminum, and enamel, like this Wild Flowers design.

PopSockets PopGrip and PopWallet for MagSafe (Save 20%)

From $24 at Amazon

If you're shopping for an iPhone 12 or 13 owner, PopSockets don't even need to use adhesive. The PopGrip for MagSafe and PopWallet for Magsafe magnetically stick to an iPhone, then you can pop them off when you want to wirelessly charge.

If you need some help picking out a PopSocket for everyone, here are some of the licensed PopGrips that PopSockets sells:

  • Disney
  • Harry Potter
  • Hello Kitty/Sanrio
  • Marvel
  • MLB
  • NCAA
  • NFL
  • Pokemon
  • Star Wars

If you're not sure a PopCulture style PopGrip is right for someone, check out the enamel PopGrips, there are dozens of designs from sharks to sci-fi to animals and food. Enamel PopGrips have a more distinct feel in the hand, too, which adds an extra touch as you brush your fingertips against it fifty times a day taking your phone in and out of your pocket.

PopSockets are far and away the best phone grips in terms of compatibility, longevity, and addictability. The plastic accordion doesn't wear out as quickly as the hinges and ball bearings in metal phone grips, and it doesn't overstretch the way elastic and cloth phone grips do.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders. Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Price and availability What's good What's not good The competition Should you buy?

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
