Microsoft’s over-ear noise-canceling Surface Headphones 2 were released earlier in 2020, and the biggest change from their predecessor is the price: The original Surface Headphones launched at $350, while the Headphones 2 cost $250 (£240, AU$400). Like the original, there’s a lot to like about this second-gen model. While they’ve lost their hands-free Cortana voice control feature (a change no one will lament), the combination of some small design tweaks, better battery life, upgraded Bluetooth and the new lower price help bump their rating up and make them more recommendable.

The Global E-Waste Monitor 2020 reports a record 59 tons of e-waste, and predicts a rise to 81 tons by 2030.
Even non-techies can be reliant on many pieces of technology, as they navigate the day: Smart watch, smart phone, earbuds, tablets, laptops, car charger, and more. And while there’s the unicorn who proudly holds up their still-working iPhone 4, today’s tech has a shelf-life. As technology grows faster and less expensive, increasingly more people have any combination of tech gadgets.
“Between our reliance on technology and ‘the upgrade culture’ that has become pervasive in recent years, it’s clear why electronic waste is rising at such an incredibly high rate,” said Liam Howley, CMO of Decluttr, an online tech consignment company. “Around 130 million cell phones are thrown away each year in the US, with that number growing.”
Eventually, most tech becomes e-waste, a fast-growing worldwide problem. Electronic and electrical equipment are linked to widespread global economic development. The Global E-Waste Monitor 2020 reported a record 2.7 million tons of e-waste (discarded products with a battery or plug), and predicts that figure will rise to

Here’s everything we’ve heard so far about who may or may not be eligible for an extra economic stimulus payment. This story updates often in light of new developments.
Many people are unsure exactly how to dispose of the mostly titanium Apple Cards. In this post, we detail how to recycle Apple Cards and more.
In August of 2019, Apple launched the Apple Card across the US. The credit card works with the Apple Wallet app to streamline payments for Apple customers. Cardholders who want the actual card can request it via the Wallet app. Eventually, individuals may eventually want to cancel their Apple Card for any number of reasons. Historically, many have often sliced their old cards when they were finished with them.
Unlike traditional plastic credit cards, the Apple card is made predominantly of titanium. This presents a number of difficulties when it comes to disposing of the card once customers choose to cancel the line of credit. Needless to say, one cannot simply slice a titanium card to smithereens using a standard pair of household scissors or push the product through a shredder.
For this reason, we’ve curated this guide explaining how to dispose of Apple Cards when the time comes. Fortunately, Apple makes the process exceptionally easy and straightforward.
