[Not 2009] Verizon plans to launch a Palm smartphone later this year

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Last August, a TCL executive confirmed that the company was gearing up to launch Palm-branded smartphones in 2018. Speaking to a trusted source, we’ve learned that one such device will be launching on Verizon in the second half of the year; at least, that’s the plan for now. Sadly, we don’t know anything about the phone itself at this time (well, we know it runs Android), but the fact that TCL is working with Verizon is telling.

A Palm smartphone reboot is reportedly coming to Verizon later this year

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Verizon may launch a new Palm device in the second half of this year, an anonymous source told Android Police. The rumor backs up what a TCL executive said last August, when he confirmed to Dutch publication Android Planet that the company would launch a Palm phone this year. TCL did not respond to comments when we reached out at the time, despite previous reports that the company had no plans for the Palm.

There are little details beyond a supposed release date for this new device. According to Android Police’s report, the phone is expected to run on Android OS, and TCL has reportedly returned to Palm’s erstwhile partner, Verizon, for the impending release. The carrier sold most of the brand’s phones, including the Palm Pre 2.

Volkswagen will race this wild new EV up Pikes Peak later this year

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Volkswagen announced late last year that it would return to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for the first time in 31 years. Now we know that the German automaker plans to tackle the competition with a wild, all-electric race car called the ID R Pikes Peak.

In case you’re unfamiliar, PPIHC is one of the more revered (and daunting) motorsports competitions in the world. Drivers start at the bottom of a 156-turn, 12.4-mile course, and race (one at a time) to the finish line at the summit some 14,000 feet above sea level.

EVs aren’t new to Pikes Peak — in fact, they’ve flourished there since showing up a few years ago, in part because they don’t wind up gasping for oxygen like internal combustion engines are wont to…

The HTC Vive Focus is launching internationally later this year

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

HTC Vive’s venture into standalone VR headsets, the Vive Focus, was unveiled late last year, but the launch was unfortunately confined to the Chinese market. Unlike existing VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift or the standard HTC Vive, the Focus doesn’t require being tethered to a powerful computer to work, making it a truly standalone experience. On the other hand, existing standalone virtual reality goggles like the Gear VR, Daydream View, or upcoming Oculus Go don’t have spatial tracking, meaning that users aren’t able to move around in 3D space.

Meerkat was the darling of SXSW in 2015. Here’s why it pivoted three months later and became HouseParty.

Founder and CEO Ben Rubin explains the livestreaming company’s extreme makeover on Recode Media.

Three years ago, the mobile livestreaming app Meerkat was the app of South By Southwest in Austin, Texas. But this year at SXSW, Meerkat’s founder Ben Rubin was happy just hanging out.

On the latest episode of Recode Media with Peter Kafka, Rubin reflected on why, just months after SXSW 2015, he pivoted the Meerkat team away from livestreaming into a different product, HouseParty. For starters, the splashy debut was not as carefully orchestrated as it may have seemed at the time.

“Two weeks before the conference, people were already streaming and talking about ‘Meerkat at South By,’” Rubin said. “But it was just me, a chubby guy with a yellow t-shirt that didn’t even know he was going to South By four days before that.”

The mobile broadcasting model — later mimicked by Facebook Live, Facebook-owned Instagram and Twitter-owned Periscope, among others — wasn’t good for making “meaningful connections,” Rubin noted.

“The amount of people who can make meaningful live content on a daily basis is very, very few,” he said.

Although Meerkat attracted millions of users, the company noticed that they would broadcast once or twice and then peace out — so, Meerkat became HouseParty, which lets multiple friends video chat with each other simultaneously (think FaceTime, but for groups). Rubin characterized that decision as a “pivot from courage,” rather than a “pivot from fear.”

“The pivots from fear always come too late, and three months before you run out of money,” he said. “A pivot from courage is the one where everybody’s shaking in the chairs in the board meeting. Everyone was afraid because I was this crazy guy who’d just raised $ 12 million.”

You can listen to Recode Media on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Overcast or wherever you listen to podcasts.

On the new podcast, Rubin said the thing he cares most about HouseParty creating is a sense of “presence” among the app’s users — a technological fascimilie of hanging out in the same room with other people, including not-close friends. Half of the app’s users are under the age of 24.

“Everybody has two or three friends who they can FaceTime at any minute, out of the blue,” he said. “But there’s another 20 people who, ‘It’s gonna be weird if Peter FaceTimes me out of the blue, why should I answer this?’ With HouseParty, it’s actually okay to say ‘I’m around’ and for your friends to opt in, and their friends can join in.”

“That’s one of the beautiful things about the internet, the ability to have connections that you otherwise would not have,” Rubin added. “Everything became flattened into a two-dimensional feed. A real dialogue between people is bringing back empathy that I think we’ve been missing.”
