The first meme of 2018 was Mariah Carey publicly complaining that, prior to her New Year’s Eve performance, no one had brought her “hot tea.” It was funny and in keeping with Carey’s legendary diva antics, but it was also a GIF-able summation of the year’s desperate need for soothing. President Trump had closed out a horribly tense first year in the White House; Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria left devastation in their wakes; a man opened fire on a Las Vegas music festival, killing dozens; North Korea was testing nuclear weapons; we learned that Hollywood (and especially Harvey Weinstein) was a sexist hotbed of sexual coercion. We all needed that hot tea. The first memes of 2019 (Chrissy Teigen getting poked in the eye with an umbrella notwithstanding) strike a markedly different tone, often displaying a desperate kind of self-actualized intention.

FuturePunk, AKA xxSwagMasterYolo420xx, is a graphic designer with a rather colorful past who has been creating designs professionally since he was 18. He discovered synthwave, simpsonswave, and vaporwave in 2016 after catching the flu and since then has been “riding the retro-wave” and creating graphics and animations inspired by what the artist calls “the greatest decade in the history of mankind” – the 80s.

I spent the summer and beyond using Bing instead of Google for search. It's a whole new world, but not always for the better.

Living in New York, one grows accustomed to building safeguards. Commuting via the subway, for instance, requires specific defensive measures. The MTA suffers from chronic delays, regular breakdowns, the occasional track fire, and serious overcrowding. One conventional escape for most passengers is the application of headphones. Listening to music or a podcast (the city is home to many a "super listener") for the duration of a trip helps to obstruct the surrounding clamor.

If you know the company Square, it's probably because you've paid in a store using a Square “stand,” a dock that supports a tablet, or you've swiped your card through Square Reader, a smartphone dongle that processes payments. These products have a soothing, decidedly Apple-y aesthetic, from the simple dongle to the all-white stand that typically houses an iPad. But since late last year, Square has been quietly selling its own custom-made tablet, the Square Register, a $999, Android-based system. And the company has taken an obsessive approach to designing the product.

Imagine being able to make a machine do your bidding with your thoughts alone, no button pressing, typing, screen tapping or fumbling with remote controls, just brain power. Well, this sci-fi scenario could be closer to reality than you think.

Bill Kochevar’s life was changed, seemingly irrevocably, when he was paralysed from the shoulders down following a cycling accident nearly a decade ago.

His future looked bleak.

But last year he was fitted with a brain-computer interface, or BCI, that enabled him to move his arm and hand for the first time in eight years.

Sensors were implanted in his brain, then over a four-month period Mr Kochevar trained the system by thinking about specific movements, such as turning his wrist or gripping something.

The sensors effectively learned which bits of the brain fired up – and in what sequence – for each movement.

PC ownership is dead. The future of PCs is subscription-based, just like Netflix.

That’s what Asher Kagan, president and co-founder of Blade, a French cloud-based computer startup, basically told me as he showed off the full-fledged PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider — detailed 3D graphics and all — running on a phone, tablet, and MacBook Pro.
