Tattoos I Have Not Gotten — 2005: My best friend and I decided to get dinosaur tattoos. Me: raptor, inside of right wrist, in white. Her: brontosaurus (RIP) [ or not ?], somewhere inconspicuous, in black outline. We decided to think about it for a year and then get them if we still wanted them.

Why There Aren't More Apple Watch Apps, According to Apple Watch Developers — Sign up for Motherboard's newsletter, Motherboard Premium, and get more stories like this daily. It's now been three months since the Apple Watch was released, and even though we don't know how many units were sold, there are lots of apps for it. Target. American Airlines. Twitter. CNN. OpenTable.

Radio Motherboard: What Have We Learned from the Ebola Outbreak? — There was a period when it felt like the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was gobbling the world. Apocalyptic headlines; heart-wrenching photos of stricken patients; that story of the woman who survived but was too sick to crawl to her fiancé after he was carried, screaming, into the same treatment center, where he died without knowing she was there.

What It's Like to Be Clinically Nocturnal — Image: Alice Popkorn/Flickr Julia Plant is 22, turning 23 at the end of this month. She lives in Denver, where she works in television development. She doesn't sleep well. She has never slept well. "I don't sleep well" is a common complaint, but Julia really doesn't sleep well.

This Time, It’s Personal — Technology touches everything, but it can often seem distant and lifeless. At Motherboard, we try to make every story relevant on a human level, but it's not always easy when you're writing about supersymmetry and light-based computers. When you talk about the science and technology of health, however, suddenly it's personal.

Sex Tapes and the First Amendment — Image: Matthew Glover/Flickr Last week, we wrote that a high profile lawsuit between the former pro-wrestler Hulk Hogan and the gossip site family Gawker Media was about to go to trial. Boy, were we wrong! As is not uncommon, the trial has been indefinitely postponed-more about that later.

How to Perform Amateur Surgery on a Phone — Modern America is not really huge on repair; we're more into planned obsolescence, excuses to buy new stuff, and things that are cleaner because they're disposable. This aversion to fixing things is strongest when it comes to our electronics, which are extremely valuable, extremely mysterious little black boxes.

Judge: You Can’t Patent a Kickstarter-Style Funding System — A judge in New York has ruled that a 2011 patent for an invention that lets fans crowdfund creators' work through a website is invalid, because it's basically just the age-old system of patronage. "Even the addition of an element of computer use is insufficient to render it valid," the judge wrote.

Modern Medicine: Where Health Technology Stands in 2015 — "The Living, Breathing 'Human on a Chip' Is Coming." Now there's a headline. It's about how researchers are reconstructing cross-sections of human organs, using real cells and artificial blood all hooked up to a system of tubes pumping air and liquids through a rubbery plastic chip.

Why We Decided Not to Say the Astros Were ‘Hacked’ — On Tuesday, the St. Louis Cardinals were accused by federal investigators of accessing proprietary information on a database owned by the Houston Astros. The Cards allegedly got into the Astros' data because a former employee didn't change his password. Immediately, the Motherboard team began debating: Was this a hack?
