Travel Tuesday: Delta is Changing Its Boarding Procedures... Kind Of

As a loyal-ish Delta customer, I like to think that I have a pretty good handle on what to expect when flying the airline. This includes knowing the order of their boarding groups — and even what I'd need to do in order to move up the food chain. Well,...

Travel Tuesday: Moderne Gentleman vs. Halfday - Comparing the Garment Duffles

Last week, I shared a look at the Moderne Gentleman Travel Duffle. As you may have noticed, that bag bears some resemblance to the Halfday Garment Duffle, which I previously reviewed. Given that natural comparison, I figured that a deeper dive into the matter was warranted. Fair warning: while these...

Current Rewards (Current Music) iOS App Review

Some time ago, Instagram introduced me to an app called Current Rewards — also known as Current Music (and not to be confused with the neobanking app Current). For a time, I got pretty into it and even purchased the Mode Phone, which took the Current Rewards concept to a...
