What You Should Know About Bankruptcy (from Someone Who's Been There)
At 24, I was in a good place both financially and personally. I had a full time job, my dream apartment, and enough disposable income to keep myself entertained. Sure, I had a little credit card debt–who didn't?—and my car payment was a tad high, but I wasn't worried. I made enough money to keep things running smoothly.
Snapchat Redesign Puts Spotlight on ‘Discover’ News Portal
Jon Steinberg, the North American CEO of Daily Mail, said reader adoption of Discover has exceeded his expectations, so much so that the service has become his number-two priority after the publication’s own site. While he wouldn’t comment on the number of users going to the Daily Mail’s section in Discover, he said they are more valuable than other types of Web users because they are engaging with it for six to nine minutes a day and looking at full-screen ads.

No Man's Sky: From Humble Beginnings - IGN
No Man’s Sky existed before Joe Danger. In the early days of Hello Games – around 2012 when there was just four people – it was far too ambitious to ever speak of in practical terms. Back then it was referred to as ‘Project Skyscraper’, and functioned more like a therapeutic daydream. During the production of Joe Danger, the studio’s first game, it was always there in the background, coming up in conversations while the kettle boiled – a necessary distraction when working on Hello’s charismatic stuntman became too stressful or frustrating. There was something about that simple idea of exploring an unknown planet – visited by no one, not even the developer – which never went away.
7 games with a Zen state of mind
You've had a long day. Your alarm didn't go off, so you rush to get to work. To make matters worse, you get to your bus just as it's pulling away, so you have to wait 15 minutes for the next one. Then you spill coffee down the front of your shirt right before a meeting with a client. And to top it all off, it looks like you accidentally sexted your mom instead of your significant other. But it's going to be all right, because as soon as you get home, you fire up that one game that'll let you chill, zone out and play your problems away. For me, that Zen gaming go-to is Two Dots , with its deceptively simple connect-the-dots missive and pleasing illustrations seemingly ripped from the pages of a children's book. But there are other, equally as charming and calming video games out there. So if you're in need of a tranquil gaming fix, then we've got just the list for you.

Yes, Google Photos Can Still Sync Your Photos After You Delete The App
tl;dr: don’t assume anything when it comes to Google and your data. Or indeed, cloud syncing services and your data. Such services are typically structured to be device- and app-instance independent — given they are intended to work across devices and in the background. So deleting one installation of a cloud app might not be the same as nixing a whole service. Or, to put it another way, you might just be removing one sucker from the tentacle you’ve attached to your digital person, rather than dislodging the entire octopus.
Spotify account lead cops to alleged child abductors
Authorities tracked down two children in Mexico thanks to their alleged abductors' Spotify habit, according to the Coloradoan. The 4- and 6-year-old girls were reportedly taken from Colorado by Peter Barr and Brittany Nunn after Nunn, their mother, lost a custody battle in court. Authorities were unable to find them until Sheriff's investigator Drew Weber tried a decidedly new-school tactic. Nunn was apparently a Spotify user, so Weber demanded a search warrant for her account and tracked it to an IP address in Mexico.
He also tracked Nunn's Netflix account, and eventually found her in Cabo San Lucas after she received a package there. Authorities then watched the couple for months while they worked out how to extradite the fugitives and get the children safely home. They were eventually arrested in Cabo San Lucas and brought back to the US, where they're awaiting custody violation charges in Larimer County. The children were reunited with their fathers last week, with one saying "I just hugged her. It was just a surreal moment."
