Exercise in order to keep healthy? Stay sane? We’ve got your back. Here at The Verge, we offer advice and step-by-step how-tos on how best to do your job from your home office, bedroom, or living room. We help you choose the right laptop, headphones, and desk, and find the right apps for keeping in touch via video, chat, and email.
