One of the coolest features of Apple’s new HomePod is its ability to team up with your Apple Music subscription and act as a personal DJ, playing custom playlists based on your listening habits for you enjoy whenever you ask. Your HomePod’s mixology skills can get thrown off kilter, though, if family members or visitors are also asking Siri to play their favorite tunes. And this will also influence what Apple Music thinks you like and plays for you on your other Apple Devices as well. Fortunately, there’s a HomePod setting you can change to ensure that you won’t end up listening to a mish-mosh of all your friends’ and family members’ musical tastes. Let’s get started learning how to keep other HomePod users from influencing your “For You” Apple Music recommendations on your HomePod.

The Android One Moto X4 is a good mid-range device, but the price was too high when it launched.

The Nest Secure launched last year with a few cool features including all-in-one Detect sensors and NFC tags to disarm. It lacked one seemingly obvious feature—Google Assistant support. Nest is finally rectifying that oversight with an over-the-air update. You can arm the secure, check your security level, and (sometimes) disarm it by voice.

To get your Secure attached to Google Assistant, you have to open your Nest app and check the messages.

Death Count from Hurricane Maria Was Way Off. That Might Slow Puerto Rico’s Recovery.

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

64. That was the official death count shortly after Hurricane Maria struck, devastating Puerto Rico just over six months ago.

But demographer Alexis Raul Santos found evidence for hundreds more that officials had missed. To be exact, 1,085 more deaths. That they didn’t count. And that’s just from September and October alone.

That’s a huge oversight that’s not only disrespectful to Puerto Ricans — it slow recovery from future events even worse by inhibiting governments and engineers from planning for them, according to a new study. 

Let’s go back to what happened with the death count numbers. It seems as though officials counted only people who died directly as a result of the high winds and immediate destruction caused by the storm, according to the New York Times. And while that might have indicated to Trump that his administration had handled the disaster well, it didn’t hold up to further assessment.

In a previous study, Santos, the director of the graduate program in applied demography at Penn State University, and his team looked at the relative amount of deaths in post-storm 2017 as compared to previous years.  found a 45 percent rise in deaths that occurred in nursing homes compared to 2016, and a similar 41 percent rise in emergency room deaths. The researchers also examined specific causes of death, noting a 47 percent rise in sepsis-related deaths in September 2017 compared to September 2016.

“This is not a vanity exercise,” Santos told the New York Times in December, when Puerto Rico ordered a review of the death count. “Effective assessment of climate disasters is the only way we can prevent loss of life in future events.”

That was the subject of Santos’ most recent study, published Monday in the journal Health Affairs. In it, Santos argued that statistics may be the best weapon for residents of the island, especially when facing the federal government’s slow and inadequate disaster relief effort.

Underestimating the damage and death toll caused by a storm like Maria will not only reduce the relief response — the amount of resources, the number of people shipped out to help — but it will also mean that people might not adequately prepare for future storms.

“There are a lot of things that can go wrong if you aren’t carefully gathering and analyzing data, particularly in your ability to convey the devastation of, in this case, an environmental disaster,” said Santos. He believes that underreporting damage caused by a storm may cause those who are in a position to help, such as politicians and other officials, to lose interest.

That kind of information is especially important when you consider that Puerto Rico doesn’t have the easiest time getting interest from those in power in the first place. Because Puerto Rico is a territory, its residents have fewer rights than Americans that live in the 50 states, like not being able to vote in presidential elections.

“Statistics are the only real voice Puerto Ricans have,” Santos said in a press release. “They don’t have votes. They can’t vote for a member of Congress, or the president of the United States. Their political power is diminished, so the only way you can create an effective strategy is to use data as your main tool for discussion.”

Santo hopes that his efforts to collect and improve data that reveal the reality of life on the island will speak for itself, giving the citizens who are still affected by Hurricane Maria (yes, still) the political power they may otherwise lack.

How to stop Apple Pay from pestering you into signing up

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Some can feel pestered by the constant notification badge reminding them to sign up for Apple Pay. Here’s how to get rid of it.

If you’ve set up a new iOS device in recent years, you’ll have come across a prompt to set up Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment solution. If you’ve ever opted to perform that task later and then didn’t do so, you’ll also likely have seen a red notification badge on your Settings app and opened it only to discover not a new update, but a message urging you to set up Apple Pay.

Maybe you think you can’t get rid of that badge. Maybe somebody told you that you can’t. But here’s the thing: you definitely can. I’m going to tell you how.

How to stop Apple Pay from pestering you into signing up.

If you don’t want to sign up for Apple Pay when you’re setting up a new device, just tap Set up Later in Settings when you get to that screen in the setup process. But if you’ve gotten the notification badge, here’s what you need to do to get rid of it.

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap Finish Setting Up Your iPhone/iPad

  3. Tap Set Up Apple Pay.
  4. Tap Cancel.

That’s all you need to do. The badge should disappear after a moment, and you shouldn’t hear about it again. Of course, if you want, you can always sign up for Apple Pay.
