Earlier today, while watching BBC Television's Click programme, I came across a reference to a UX design tool by +Balsamiq-- called Balsamiq Mockups -- that lets you rapidly create mockups (or wireframes) of the screens for an app or a web site

This tool is available for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux, but you can also try out a demo version of the app in your browser at
http://webdemo.balsamiq.com/

Finally, if you are new to the UX design, you might want to check out Balsamiq's free tutorial: http://www.uxapprentice.com/

"Time spent on a mobile device by the average US consumer has risen to 2 hrs and 42 minutes per day from 2 hrs and 38 minutes per day in March of 2013. Apps continued to cement their lead, and commanded 86% of the average US mobile consumer’s time, or 2 hrs and 19 minutes per day."
Flurry's six year report breaks down mobile time spent and app use across categories, time spent and apps versus mobile web.

Alright, here's everything I was able to scrounge up about Android Wear. I think we've got a pretty good idea of how it works.
We take a look at how Android Wear works, and even manage to break some stuff.

British dialect coach Andrew Jack takes you on an amazing tour of the different accents you can hear on the British Isles. At first I was surprised by how many different sounds and pronunciations there are in such a small region, but I also recognized many of them from TV shows and movies I've seen. I watched it over and over and didn't want to stop!

“If you’re far enough ahead that people can’t figure out if you’re joking, you know you’ve innovated.”
Google's email breakthrough was almost three years in the making. But it wasn't a given that it would reach the public at all
