    My favorite Apple watch band

    I like this mesh steel Apple watch band mainly because it is not tiny belt. The magnetic latch makes it easy to wear and remove the watch from my wrist. It is infinitely adjustable, so I have the perfect fit rather than being a the mercy of the hole spacing. I think it looks great, and it's just on Amazon. I've had mine for over a year now and I wouldn't want any other kind of band.

    What's the difference a budget and a top-of-the-line precision steel rule?

    Over at my other website, Cool Tools, we just posted a new video produced and hosted by my old MAKE colleague, Sean Michael Ragan, about steel rules. I had my doubts that a 10-minute video comparing 6-inch precision steel rules would hold my interest, but it did! Sean looks at rules under a microscope and points out the differences between three brands of rule. I would have thought the cheap General tools rule would be about as good as the Starrett that costs four times as much, but Sean's video convinced me that it really is worth spending the extra money for the Starrett.

    What is the best way to peel garlic? This guy tries and ranks five different ways to do it

    It turns out piercing cloves of garlic with a paring knife is the worst of five different ways explored here to peel garlic, at least according to Adam Ragusea. Number four is microwaving the garlic for 20 seconds; number three is shaking the cloves between two bowls; number two is rolling the garlic between your hands, and number one is smashing the clove with the side of a knife. My favorite way is this floppy tube garlic peeler.
