Airmail for iOS is here: the email app that can do everything

A

The most popular email apps usher in some sort of innovation: Sparrow had incredible simplicity, Mailbox had snoozes, and Inbox has its intelligent cards and bundles. Their popularity came from changing the way we work with email — so it’s easy to overlook today’s launch of Airmail for iOS, which has no one standout feature, as just another app. But even though Airmail doesn’t...

For $140k, Land Rover wants to take you on the world’s most luxurious road trip

F

Everyone likes a good road trip. Whether it’s to move cross country (check), to see the space shuttle launch (I did the drive, though the launch was scrubbed), or just to see somewhere new (check, check, check). A road trip is an opportunity to see the world, one mile at a time. Most of my road trips have involved stops at quaint, but inexpensive, roadside motels across the United States...

RAMONE is a composition of non-fiction short stories and introspections by Reggie Tan.

Howdy. I first started blogging on RAMONE.ca in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.

About me-Power user of technology. Style guy. Avid gamer. Obsessed with the Cybertruck. Lyrical poet. I like my beats bottom heavy. Madaline is ∞. Only God can judge me. INTP. Birthed in the East Coast of Canada by a pair of cool Filipino parents. Cautiously ADHD. I prefer my whisky neat with a tumbler of room-temp water. Otherwise, a pint of your best draught will do.

I'm a member of the anti-social club. Happily retired from Facebook or Instagram. My verified Twitter account was recently hacked. I do use LinkedIn for business.
