Good feature if implemented well - I know some iPhone users who love Apple's version of this. However, when sharing your location, please always be safe.

Google Maps will soon let you share your real-time location — here's how it works

If these chatbots can read my expression right now, they know that I'm deeply disturbed while checking out this news. Must wear sunglasses before the chatbots know too much. I'm kidding. Sort of.

RIP robocalls? Please, please, please say this is true.

(FYI - Google definition of robocalls - an automated telephone call that delivers a recorded message, typically on behalf of a political party or telemarketing company.)

Hmm, interesting POV about how cheap VR headsets could push potential buyers off VR because of the "shoddier" experience. Do you think this is a valid point?

Augmented reality will become a $50 billion business in 5 years, analysts say

Would you agree? Ten dollars still seems a little steep for Super Mario Run IMHO, but at least you can now get v2.0 on Android.

Super Mario Run is finally available on Android, and it's worth buying

Interesting that Netflix seems to find more valuable data by looking at their entire audience instead of breaking it down into traditional geographic boundaries (next step: let's all have access to the same content by language, please :-) )

Netflix divides its 93 million users around the world into 1,300 “taste communities”

Interesting approach to helping the homeless - I'll be curious to see how this trial works out.

Portland will start housing the homeless in tiny pods in people's backyards

Workflow is popular tool allowing iOS users to "combine the functionalities of various apps together to automate normally complex processes" - and Apple just bought it and made it free!

Google's going to have to figure out this issue quickly - pretty reasonable for brands to not want their paid advertising set alongside potential hate speech.

AT&T, Verizon join companies pulling ads from Google and YouTube

Earlier this week, I shared a post about self-driving flying taxis in Dubai. Turns out this city is embracing new tech at a rate not seen in my hometown. If you worry about our robot overlords killing us, maybe you'll feel safer with robot police officers protecting us?

I'm not sure I do, but I'd love to see "real-life robocops" in action...

Someone in my family, whom I will not name, is addicted to shopping on Amazon. When I do shop there, I often read the reviews. While I know they help, I was surprised to learn what a big different they make.

For example: "Going from zero review to one increases the rate at which online window-shoppers actually click the BUY button by 65%."

Do you care about Amazon reviews?

That review you wrote on Amazon? Priceless
