Looks like Best Buy caught on to my deal. Still, if you're in the market for a new Android phone you can get a Moto 360 for under $100. In addition to the $100 off sign up for their .edu deals and receive an additional $25 coupon. I've been reserved about the device for many reasons but at this low of a cost, it's not only one of the best looking watches I own but the most feature packed!

I agree that high level trophy pushing seems like no fun and kind of boring once you start to get up there. It's more like an endurance test than fun. However, your series where you're racing to champion league with Chief Pat is a gas. I also like your TH8 base series.

China is 5X bigger than the US.

Seems like China have bigger application download amount than US does.
In the first quarter, China overtook the U.S. as the country with the most iOS downloads. China's ascendance to the top of the download leaderboard is likely linked to the region's growing infatuation with Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, which helped Apple post record total sales of $74.6 billion in its fiscal 2015 first quarter.___China is 5X bigger than the US.

yes

I'm bringing Chris Christensen back for an encore. I simply can't get enough of his teaching. Jobs to be done is a method of approaching business. It identifies products and services customers use as "solutions" to a problem. That problem is identified as a "job", which needs doing or solving. The job is more than just a problem, it is a task which needs doing that's motivated by practical and emotional requirements. For example: Say you own a house and you need your grass cut once per week. In the traditional problem solving model, you might be tempted to think that the problem is that you need your grass cut. But what's really at the heart is our emotions: we want a nice home, and a nice neat cut lawn is one way to achieve that. Practically speaking, the grass must be cut because the city will fine you because an unkept lawn will draw complaints and lower property value of the neighborhood. But If the goal were just to beautify the home, other solutions could be used besides just cutting the grass. For example if a home designer were to design a home with better lighting, many lightbulbs could be installed. A more aesthetically pleasing solution would appeal to the emotions of the buyer, and sell the home faster. So an open window concept could be used instead, because people often prefer natural lighting over artificial. This would also reduce utility costs. The article lays out how to apply jobs to be done, and other techniques. ___yes

Men as cocktail accompaniments.

Y'all might know about dating apps. These apps usually entail online communication, mainly texting and let users check each others' profile. Honestly, I have thought that's kind of awkward to seek my potential boyfriend via online, by checking his profile picture and even job and school background which he allegedly has. George Christoforakis, the co-founder of Rendeevoo (the company which made this app) has The similar thinking with me. He invented the system of this app, dragging people out of online chatting room to make them knuckle down to dating by eliminating the messaging function from the app. Instead, this app has partnership with some bar. If a user wants to date with another user after reading his profile, she can 'order' him, and buy him a cocktail just like what we do in the online shop. It sounds really interesting and I think this system will be way more effective for matching people because it leads them directly to the bar!___Men as cocktail accompaniments.

Strangely, the Internet is good for interconnecting.

Company's sign up and advertise this service to employee's, the app then collects fee's from users to reimburse the driver for expenses but does not provide commission. Ride holds a percentage of each transaction. However, I'm unsure what will prevent people from using this once to make connections and then carpooling among themselves without Ride's fees. ___Strangely, the Internet is good for interconnecting.
