Need to fall asleep fast? One mid-century relaxation technique, developed in the U.S. Navy Pre-Flight School, supposedly works within minutes. It may not be magic, but it seems like a pretty good way to relax your body and mind.
It’s hard to know what sizes you need to keep a baby properly clothed. Maybe you’re a new parent who doesn’t know, well, anything; maybe you’ve had a bit of a gap since the last kid and you need a refresher.

Apple plans to release a new replacement for the MacBook Air (and possibly the current MacBook) with a Retina display later this year, according to a report in Bloomberg. More surprising: the report also claims an updated Mac mini is right around the corner.

That would move the Mac mini further away from one of its original purposes—cheap consumer home theater PC—likely because that product category has been replaced by devices like the Apple TV or various Roku dongles and boxes, among other things.
Renting a car can be glamorous or a total cluster, depending on whether you want it more for the experience or as a means to get somewhere for the lowest price. This new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 rental at Hertz leans toward the former, but don’t expect to get far—it has a cap at 75 miles per day before fees rack up.
