Why Google makes Android phone notches now
As to why the hardware industry is adding notches to phones, well, that's easy. Phonemakers want to stretch the screen from edge to edge, so they can give you more screen to play with while keeping handset size in check. "That's the holy grail," Burke said.

Willow breast pump wants to put the focus back on moms
It's also important to note that pumping isn't just the domain of mothers who work away from their babies. Women who work as a primary caregiver, like full-time moms, still need to pump sometimes -- to build a back-up supply of milk, for example. The Willow customer I spoke with noted that because Willow was more convenient than traditional pumping, she found herself pumping not only on the job but also when she was reading to her older child or doing the dishes.

President Trump just saved embattled Chinese phone maker ZTE
ZTE had to shut its business down because the Commerce Department ban prevented it from using critical parts of the Android operating system, including access to the Google Play store and newer versions of Android and security patches. In addition, it was prevented from using carrier tools to offer software updates and security patches to existing phones. The company also couldn't get access to critical components for networking equipment, which it sells to a wide variety of countries, including India, Austria and Italy.

Be among the first to try Verizon's new Visible service
Visible isn't the only low-cost alternative to Verizon; most of the other Big Four carriers have offshoot options as well. AT&T-powered Cricket Wireless, for example, offers a $40 plan that's also unlimited, though with 5GB of high-speed data. (But even that isn't as high-speed as AT&T's ; Cricket caps downloads at 8Mbps.) Sprint's prepaid service is Boost , T-Mobile's is MetroPCS .
Big for a reason, the Tekton Impact Monitor speakers will blow you away
Tekton Design is an American speaker company that has been making highly original designs for 12 years, but it's only now with the introduction of the Impact Monitor and Double Impact tower speakers that Tekton is breaking through to a wider audience that might have bought Bowers & Wilkins, Dynaudio, ELAC, Harbeth, or KEF speakers. The Impact Monitors run $2,000 a pair in their satin black painted finish, and other colors are available for extra cost. I can't think of another audiophile grade speaker for the money that energizes a room like the Impact Monitor.

Apple and Samsung face off in court - again! - over design patents
Not much. None of the Samsung devices in this case is still on the market. But there could be some impact down the road, depending on how much money Apple gets for its design patents. Samsung has argued that granting damages based on the full value of the phone, not just the specific infringing parts, would have a chilling effect on innovation. Companies would be afraid to create new products for fear they could be sued for certain design aspects.

Luis Pagani: "El Gobierno no tiene plan económico"
—Le voy a leer un texto publicado en 1998 en “Clarín”, titulado “Blanco y negro” y firmado por Darío D’Atri y Silvia Naishtat. Dice: “Luis Pagani no cuenta con el carnet ni las costumbres de los únicos cuatro millonarios argentinos que ingresaron al club de ‘Forbes’. Ellos son Gregorio Perez Companc, Amalita Fortabat, Eduardo Eurnekian y Franco Macri. En su vestimenta solo hay dos discretas señales de fortuna que posee, un Cartier de plata y un par de gemelos de oro. Algo excedido de peso, su traje recuerda al de los colegios secundarios, azul oscuro con camisa blanca, Luis tampoco está entre los diez que más pagan impuesto a la riqueza. ¿Es ese el secreto de Arcor? Reinvertimos lo que ganamos en las empresas, dicen, y eso implica que vivimos como familias de clase media. Su crecimiento fue vertiginoso, hoy facturan el doble de lo que vendían hace cinco años. Franco Macri es la antítesis, y no solo porque factura la mitad que hace cinco años atrás, viste trajes carísimos, cultiva un perfil estratosférico, figura en quinto lugar entre los que más impuestos a la riqueza pagan en la Argentina, y sobre todo es el más político de los empresarios argentinos.

Rumor: iPhone SE 2 to Launch in September Instead of May
Despite iPhone SE 2 rumors picking up steam, there’s no concrete leak confirming the existence of the handset. If Apple is indeed working on an iPhone SE 2 for Q3 launch, it seems a bit too far-fetched to me that they have still not finalized its design. More importantly, if Apple ends up going with a notch design on the iPhone SE 2, it is unlikely to come with a 4-inch display, Instead, its display size should increase by a bit to make up for the decrease in dimensions due to the lack of bezels.

“Being Everywhere Is Not Enough”: The 5 New Rules Of Branding
When you walk into a clothing store and use your mobile device to read reviews of something you hold in your hand, then step into a dressing room with a virtual mirror and your friend Skypes in to help you pick an outfit, that’s mixed reality. Creatives in advertising need to start thinking about how to design these “mixed” moments. At SXSW, the lead researcher Elliot Hedman at mPath emphasized “the tyranny of choice” many consumers feel–and described how brands are failing to create a mixed reality that engages people in “the feeling of the joy of learning.”

Google celebrates Mom with dinosaur doodle

Time to break open AI's black box, and keep it open | ZDNet
Too many organizations are rushing into AI without considering the full implications of the people element, according to Bessant. "It is time that we re-balance the discussion from being driven by the creators and the sellers of artificial intelligence to being balanced with the user perspective," she says. "The discussion has been dominated by the sellers. Flip on any one of the morning financial shows and what you see is advertisement after advertisement for large and small-scale technology firms that are pushing the notion of data and modeling and that AI will help. Generally, society seems sold that artificial intelligence is better than we are as humans. However, because we build it, it is a subset of who we are and our thinking and bias."
Fitness Trackers Changed My Life
It doesn't help that finding a wearable that works for you is hard to do. Whether they're on your wrist, in your ears, or clinging to the underside of your bra, no one really agrees on the best way to make them stick. Either they're too bulky, too uncomfortable, or you just get tired of the whole routine. In fact, when you get a bunch of wearables reviewers together, we whisper about those glorious days when we don't have to wear one at all; when our wrists are bare, and we don't have to deal with the anxiety of failing to reach a daily step goal or count the days since we've crushed it at the gym. (Hint: It's always too many.)

One important caveat: It lacks VESA mounting holes. If you want to mount it on an arm or stand, you'll need a special bracket (available online for about $30). Needless to say, that kind of offsets your savings, so if mounting is indeed a priority, you might as well just buy a monitor with VESA holes.

Medium keeps killing off blogs in the name of saving the internet
Williams has a track record of trying to partner with lean publishing programs, only to change Medium’s business model and send these businesses into panic mode . At the same time, he continues to speak about his plans to fix the broken system. It’s true that ad-based digital media is unsustainable, but bringing on journalists and editors and then killing their revenue in the name of a business pivot hardly seems like the appropriate fix. As one person impacted by Medium’s business changes in 2015 told me , the company is “throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks.”
