(image)  Developer product companies are asked to do two things: achieve near-ubiquitous adoption through an accessible, hobbyist-friendly offering, and convince large companies to pay them money. Unfortunately, these two goals often run contrary to each other. Here are some of the common mistakes (and how to handle them) developer-focused companies make when pricing their products and services. Read More(image)

Kubo, the robot that teaches kids to code, is now available for preorderkubo-product-image-2fitztepper

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 18:53:31 +0000

(image)  We saw tons of new stuff at CES this year. But one thing that particularly caught our eye was Kubo, the robot that teaches kids how to code. Kubo is a pretty simple robot – it’s about the size of a can of soda and has two wheels that allow it to roll around a desk or table. But what it lacks in advanced physical ability it makes up for in brains. Kubo comes with its own… Read More(image)

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 18:44:21 +0000

(image)  Twitter itself will take Vine’s place as a social network for short videos. To prep for tomorrow’s Vine shutdown and rebirth as Vine Camera, Twitter now automatically loops all videos shorter than 6.5 seconds. That’s not just clips posted from Vine Camera, but any tiny video, including ones saved from other apps like Snapchat. Twitter confirms to me that looping started… Read More(image)

(image)  If you’ve spent time following companies like Orbital Insight and Descartes Labs, you might assume the geospatial analytics race has been won. But TellusLabs thinks, on the contrary, that the table hasn’t even started to cool. Armed with $3 million in new seed funding from IA Ventures, the Boston-based startup wants its trust in human intuition to be the ace that wins it a seat… Read More(image)

(image)  Did anyone really love the Evernote mobile app? No? Well, good news then: the company is giving it another crack today, introducing what it hopes will be a simpler, more efficient tool to help you record your ideas, as well as search through and organize your Evernote content. As a reminder, the earlier app was a bit busy. Spread across the top of the screen were posting shortcuts –… Read More(image)

(image)  Since Google+ is still alive and kicking, Google is rolling out three updates to the product over the next couple of weeks. For one, those who still use Google+ will be able to hide low-quality comments so that they can focus “on the comments that matter most,” Google+ Product Manager Danielle Buckley wrote on the company’s blog today. Another update entails zoom… Read More(image)

(image)  Zuckerberg was forced to leave his signature gray t-shirt at home today and suit up for court. The Facebook CEO was called to the stand in a Dallas courtroom today to testify in an explosive $2 billion lawsuit which claims that Oculus Inc.

(image)  The Juicero is a neat device that, for many, has become a symbol of Silicon Valley excesses. The $700 product promised a Keurig-like experience designed to bring juicing to the kitchen (not that home juicing has ever really been that out of reach in the first place) with a proprietary system that relies on its own subscription service. This week, the company’s offering a welcome price… Read More(image)

(image)  Just in time before the 2017 presidential election in France, the current French government wanted to announce one last thing to foster French startups. The French Tech Visa is a new program for foreign tech talent. It’s an easier way to get a four-year visa for you and your family.

Sometime around 8am PT this morning, the storage service that forms the basis of most of Google’s online productivity suite (though not Gmail) started slowing down and many users (at least in the U.S.) are seeing now only seeing Google’s version of the spinning beach ball instead of their files.
