Bold move: Amazon built it's AI assistant Alexa in a refreshed $20/free version of the Dash Wand. Making it virtually free — and radically undercutting the competition, will give them a solid head start in the upcoming consumer adoption race.

I'm blown away by "The Last Night" from tiny indie studio Odd Tales: excellent art direction, groundbreaking pixel aesthetics and a fantastic score!

You know design is having its moment when IBM, gets in on the action: In the last five years, Big Blue has grown its designer to developer hiring target from 1:72 to 1:8. SAP's target changed from 1:100 to 1:10 over the last few years, while sovanta as a design driven company is constant at 1:4 since I joined 5 years ago.

When storage is running low, the Offload feature removes little-used apps but keeps their documents and data on your device. The deleted apps appear as grayed-out icons on the home screen and can be reinstalled with a tap.

With 200+ Apps installed on my devices, I'm looking forward to this one. Why can't we use the same tech on our notebooks as well?
