How to send files from a Windows 10 machine to your Android device

Android makes it incredibly easy to share files to and from your cloud account. This makes it easy to also access those files from any machine you have logged into that same Google account.

If that sounds appealing to you, there's an app called Roamit that perfectly fits the bill.

Kodak’s pivot to crypto seems to be working out quite nicely

“For many in the tech industry, ‘blockchain’ and ‘cryptocurrency’ are hot buzzwords, but for photographers who’ve long struggled to assert control over their work and how it’s used, these buzzwords are the keys to solving what felt like an unsolvable problem. Kodak has always sought to democratize photography and make licensing fair to artists. These technologies give the photography community an innovative and easy way to do just that.”

There's no home button getting in the vast screen space, and no fumbling for a reader on the phone's back. I simply pressed my index finger on the phone screen in the place where the home button would be. The screen registered my digit, then spun up a spiderweb of blue light in a pattern that instantly brings computer circuits to mind. I was in.

Meanwhile, on “Rose-Colored Boy,” Williams sings of a male friend who claims to be optimistic about change in the world, but she just isn’t feeling it. “The wars are raging on/And I have taken my glasses off,” she proclaims. “You say ‘We gotta look on the bright side’/I say ‘Well maybe if you wanna go blind.'” She’s speaking to a specific tension between those who are directly impacted by certain political decisions (especially women and people of color) and those who are content with the way things are, or hopeful for positive change. (Whether the rose-colored boy wants to Make America Great Again or enact social justice reforms is unclear.) Here, Williams focused on a specific anecdote and zoomed out to spotlight a broader shift in how relationships work when ideological beliefs clash.

'The Boondocks' predicted a 2020 Oprah presidency way back in 2006

The "Return of the King" episode isn't just about Oprah winning the electoral college. It actually tells an alternate history in which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. does not die in his 1968 assassination. Rather, he slips into a coma and wakes up in 2000. Trying acclimate to the modern state of things, Dr. King becomes first confused, then frustrated with how African Americans have treated the legacy of civil rights struggle that he hoped to pass on. He gives a fiery tirade, which causes a political shift and, ultimately, leads to Oprah's election.

IBM Breaks Patent Record in 25th Straight Year as Number One

Despite winning the most patents for the 25th straight year, IBM is struggling to turn itself around. Slowing sales in older business lines have hurt total revenue, while growth in newer areas -- including cloud, AI and cybersecurity software -- hasn’t yet closed the gap. Though IBM expects to show growth in the last quarter of 2017, analysts said much of that boost will come from a new mainframe computer. The company consistently spends about 6 percent of its annual sales on research and development.
