There was a time in our not-too-distant past when the idea of a personally piloted object that spits fire would seem totally batshit insane—in fact, it still seems batshit insane. But makeshift flame-throwing drones have been around for a minute, and now, you can purchase one of your very own.

Capitalizing on this unique opportunity to bring fire-breathing machines to our skies is Throwflame,...

Keep the Bare Minimum In Your Checking Account

If you’re no longer living paycheck-to-paycheck, it’s time to get that money out of your checking account.

Why? Because although some checking accounts do offer interest these days, your cash will probably earn more money for you in a savings account, a money market account, a CD, or a brokerage account.

Right now I try to maintain a checking account balance of $3,000—a number designed to cover...

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Can Almost Do It All
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

Few things are more ubiquitous and common on American roads than power lines, gas stations and the Toyota RAV4. In fact, Toyota managed to sell just shy of half a million of them last year. Obviously, the car is doing something right. I wanted to find out what that was.

Maybe it’s America’s obsession with crossover-ish looks and ...

The Small Instant Pot Should Fit Inside the Regular Instant Pot: A Modest Proposal

The Small Instant Pot Should Fit Inside the Regular Instant Pot: A Modest Proposal

The Instant Pot thrives at making bowl-based meals. You know, like chili, stew, and fork-tender meat that’s best served over a bed of rice. The problem is that the Instant Pot is also really good at making that rice , but you can’t cook it at the same as your main course.

I’m furious the Instant Pot makes better rice than my expensive Asian rice cooker

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Is A Couch Co-Op Superhero Party

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Is A Couch Co-Op Superhero Party

Almost 10 years after the last game in the series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order comes to Nintendo Switch this week. It feels like a throwback to the simple style of combat that I remember from games like X-Men Legends on the PlayStation 2. Having it on Switch makes for that same kind of couch co-op action on the go or at home.

Utah boy slings “ice cold beer,” has police called on him

Young entrepreneurship is tough. To begin with, you are very small and you have no money. Then you have to come up with a hot idea while working from that difficult baseline. And even if your idea works, and your modest business takes off, you run the risk of getting robbed or violating laws that you didn’t yet know existed , because you are young. It’s a difficult life.
