I agree that high level trophy pushing seems like no fun and kind of boring once you start to get up there. It's more like an endurance test than fun. However, your series where you're racing to champion league with Chief Pat is a gas. I also like your TH8 base series.

Looks like Best Buy caught on to my deal. Still, if you're in the market for a new Android phone you can get a Moto 360 for under $100. In addition to the $100 off sign up for their .edu deals and receive an additional $25 coupon. I've been reserved about the device for many reasons but at this low of a cost, it's not only one of the best looking watches I own but the most feature packed!
Best Buy will take $100 off the total when purchasing a Moto 360 and a new Android smartphone in-store through April 18. We have already seen the price drop on the Moto 360, and now Best Buy is offering another in-store deal on top to make it even sweeter. Now through April 18, when purchasing a Moto 360 and a new Android smartphone, you can save an additional $100 on the transaction...

I'm bringing Chris Christensen back for an encore. I simply can't get enough of his teaching. Jobs to be done is a method of approaching business. It identifies products and services customers use as "solutions" to a problem. That problem is identified as a "job", which needs doing or solving. The job is more than just a problem, it is a task which needs doing that's motivated by practical and emotional requirements. For example: Say you own a house and you need your grass cut once per week. In the traditional problem solving model, you might be tempted to think that the problem is that you need your grass cut. But what's really at the heart is our emotions: we want a nice home, and a nice neat cut lawn is one way to achieve that. Practically speaking, the grass must be cut because the city will fine you because an unkept lawn will draw complaints and lower property value of the neighborhood. But If the goal were just to beautify the home, other solutions could be used besides just cutting the grass. For example if a home designer were to design a home with better lighting, many lightbulbs could be installed. A more aesthetically pleasing solution would appeal to the emotions of the buyer, and sell the home faster. So an open window concept could be used instead, because people often prefer natural lighting over artificial. This would also reduce utility costs. The article lays out how to apply jobs to be done, and other techniques.

Safari has not yet switched to Bing. Note how Google has held steady in its search share.
 
I'd bet a dollar that this is due to Safari's switch to Bing. It's interesting to see the "alliances" made to fight the competition. If you were told 5 years ago that Apple and MS would team up to compete with Google, you probably wouldn't have believed them.
Google faces a real challenge from Microsoft’s Bing in the US, but its dominance of global, European and UK search is almost uncontested

A big part of this product's value comes from cloud integration.
 
All companies have their hardware or software snafus, while Samsung doesn't get on the news all that often for its tv's as much as it does for it's mobile devices, they still make a decent profit from their TV's. Hopefully once Samsung gets their networks back up, they can take further precautions so that it won't happen in the future. One thing Sony has failed to fix when it came to securing their consumers' private information.
Samsung Smart Hub is down today in both the UK and USA, although there is a DNS fix for these problems being offered by the official Samsung Support channel on Twitter. Reports about this Samsung …

From apple watch to apple press on nails.
 
This is really cool! This could be the next step in wearables, however the thumbnail trackpad isn’t intended to serve as a full-time input device like the one on your laptop. It’s designed for quick interactions, say, to send text or email replies that you’ve mapped to a specific gesture. Its very interesting and makes you wonder what the potential for this device might be.
The future of hands-free control over your smartphone could actually have everything to do with your hands if MIT’s latest gizmo ever catches on. It’s a trackpad that’s so small it fits over [...]

Economics wins
 
Developers prefer iOS over Android because Apple users tend to spend up to four times as much on apps as Android users. Despite that the Google play store has more overall downloads compared to the Apple store.
Android may trump iOS in terms of market share, but when it comes to actually generating profits for developers, Apple's mobile platform still stands supreme. According to recently tabulated data f...

China is 5X bigger than the US.
 
Seems like China have bigger application download amount than US does.
In the first quarter, China overtook the U.S. as the country with the most iOS downloads. China's ascendance to the top of the download leaderboard is likely linked to the region's growing infatuation with Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, which helped Apple post record total sales of $74.6 billion in its fiscal 2015 first quarter.

I'd just chill out. At least you have an excuse for ignoring the message.
 
I don't think this person cares much for android's emojis. Android users are left out in the cold with Apples recent emoji additions. As an Android user, seeing the blank "X" where an emoji would render on a new Apple device makes me feel like there is a "cool table" that I'm not sitting at.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
 
I looked for an answer for this question, What is the Apple Watch?
In many critics opinion the simplest answer is Apple’s first smartwatch. In fact Apple calls it its “most personal device ever”. This artical try to prove why the iwatch is simply the best gadget in the market

It's amazing that this is a thing.
 
No... just no. Please can we stop the insanity right now? I saw high heeled shoes online that you put your phone in the toe and lift your foot up to take a photo... I hope it's a joke. But this clearly is real and we can see now where society is headed. SMH

Intriguing. One wonders about commercial applications.
 
This is a small patch that was developed by researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology that can apparently detect  emotions through changes in the skin like goose bumps.
Could a tiny, flexible patch on your skin read your emotions and change things in your environment accordingly? Not yet, but it might know when you get the chills.
