The way Delta decides which way you board reveals a huge problem in the airline industry (DAL)

Most airlines boarding processes are complicated because of the number of customer categories and ticket classes. When airlines experiment with new boarding strategies, they only address part of the problem by focusing on boarding lanes and reorganized boarding groups. Outside of passengers who need assistance or active US military personnel, Delta Air Lines alone has 27 different categories it uses to separate passengers into seven different boarding groups. 

As airlines create new ticket classes and reward programs, it can be hard to decipher the distinctions between boarding classes. Looking at an airline's website reveals how complicated the boarding process has become.

7 things I love about the Google Pixel 2, even though I'm an iPhone user for life

I've never owned an Android phone as my primary device. 

I jumped on the iPhone train in 2009 shortly after I got my MacBook because I wanted a quality smartphone that would work well with my laptop. Apple's iOS ecosystem also had a reputation for having all the best apps, whereas Android devices would get those apps at a later time, if at all.

I came for the revolutionary smartphone, but I stayed for the device integration. When Apple gave us iCloud and put iMessage on Macbooks a few years later, and it made a huge difference in my life. 

In recent years, though, device-syncing started to feel less like a practical reason to stick with Apple and more like an excuse to stay in my comfort zone. So for the last week, I bravely put my iPhone 7 away for a Pixel 2 and opened up my mind — and my heart — to the possibility of switching over.

The worst album of every year since 2000, according to music critics

Each year in music, one album draws the ire of enough critics to be named the worst LP of the year.

Since the turn of the century, the review aggregator Metacritic has compiled an annual list of the year's most poorly received albums by assigning scores based on composite critical reception.

We selected the most critically panned album from each year, starting with 2000 (and including the worst of 2018 so far). The resulting list includes appearances from popular artists like Justin Timberlake, The Chainsmokers, and Lil Wayne.

The 30 most fashionable women in the US, according to ThredUp

Millions of women buy and sell secondhand fashion through a site called ThredUp, which claims to be the world's largest online thrift store.

thredUP has a ton of data about what's inside the closets of American women. So the company collected this data, and, for the first time, ranked the 30 "best dressed" women in the US who sell their clothes on ThredUp. 

The women on this list are ranked based on their "Style Scores," which takes into account how fast their clothing sells on ThredUp's website (also known as sell-through rate), the quality of those clothes (also known as acceptance rate), and value of their brands.

All of the women on this list have Style Scores of 80 or higher, whereas the site-wide average is 50. There are also links to each person's closet on this list so you can see what they own — if you buy clothes from any of their

'We're going to be fighting from space in a matter of years': The Air Force is putting 'tremendous emphasis' on preparing for war in space

The Air Force is getting ready for a potential conflict in space. The force's 2019 budget underscores the "tremendous emphasis" the Air Force is putting on the new domain, a senior official said.

The Air Force already faces extensive operational obligations on Earth, but the service is shifting focus to prepare for what many see as the growing potential for conflict in space.

In a speech at the Air Force Association's air-warfare symposium in Florida in late February, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said it was "time for us as a service, regardless of specialty badge, to embrace space superiority with the same passion and sense of ownership as we apply to air superiority today."

It's not the first time Air Force leadership has underscored the importance of space.
