Instagram’s TMZ - — The first time I heard about The Shade Room, I thought it was a reality show, or maybe a nightclub. It turned out to be neither, although I was close in spirit; it's a new celebrity-entertainment publication with hundreds of thousands of readers and a secretive owner, which lends it an air of mystery and intrigue.

Borecore - — The Vine videos that rise to the top of the heap typically feature dance routines, quick-cut pranks and the occasional clever stop-motion short. But if you tap into the video-sharing app's raw "fire hose," a different picture emerges. For example, , which lets people broadcast video feeds from their phones of what they're doing at any particular moment.

ClassPass and the Joy and Guilt of the Digital Middleman Economy — Each month, I pay $99 to a company called ClassPass for the luxury of taking an unlimited number of fitness classes in and around Brooklyn, where I live.

‘Black Mirror’ and the Horrors and Delights of Technology — One of the most disturbing moments in the British TV series "Black Mirror" is what appears to be a passionate love scene. The episode takes place in a version of the future where most people have had small devices, called "grains," surgically implanted in their heads that can record and replay their memories on demand.

Tracee Ellis Ross Is Big on Big Hair — Earlier this month, I interviewed the actress Tracee Ellis Ross about her role on "Black-ish" (her new hit show on ABC), her playful presence on social media and her childhood as a daughter of the legendary singer Diana Ross.
