TL;DR: The new Beats Solo Pro are Beats' first noise-canceling on-ear headphones and they're on sale for $249.95 — a savings of $50 and their first online discount ever. When they first came out in 2008, Beats were that big, ridiculous purchase that you put on your holiday list as a Hail Mary. They were cool and eccentric but looked plastic-y and had too much bass to be enjoyable. Beats has toned it down and perfected noise cancellation over the years, but many of us are still rocking an old...

The effort to make voting easier and more accessible is a noble one that should be lauded, but that doesn't mean it can't still be screwed up.  It was just yesterday that NPR reported on a plan to allow Washington state King Conservation District voters to cast ballots for an upcoming Feb. 11 local election over the internet — including via smartphone web browsers. Unfortunately, warn experts and officials, the plan isn't exactly rock solid.  But before we get into the potential problems, it's...
