TIL iOs 12 includes "Live Listen", which pumps signal from iPhone's microphone into AirPods. For those with hearing loss who haven't sprung for a hearing aid, it seems like a great low-friction step. I'm thinking of buying AirPods for this (though it looks like a waterproof, noise-cancelling version will arrive at the end of this year). BUT...there are oddly few reviews by people with hearing loss. So....can anyone out there say how well this works? Comparison to bona-fide hearing aids would be especially appreciated (I know it's not as good, but am wondering how much worse). [more inside]

Most of the habit tracking apps I’m aware of are focused on daily habits, but I have a pretty good handle on those. What apps help you remember to do tasks that only need to be done once per week, two weeks, or month? [more inside]

I understand that this is not without some controversy. I'm a research scientist with literally hundreds of different collaborators, and read receipts for email would make my life SO MUCH EASIER. It seems like there are solutions for Gmail (Mailtrack being one of them, as I understand it). But my institutional email is Outlook-based and I was wondering if there was a similar solution? I'd prefer non-web-based software (Mac OSX).
