When we think of "refreshment" it's usually in relation to a nice cool drink, perhaps on a sunny day, but that doesn't mean this photo contest needs to be tied down to just pictures of your glass. Try to go outside the box and think of more things that are refreshing than just that beer or lemonade you're enjoying (though we'd love to see those, too!). We can't wait to see the entries this week, and so long as they fit the prompt they'll be eligible for a prize.
In the first edition of our new, longer-running photo contests we came away with tons of great entries.
It took two weeks to pick winners this time around, but we're super happy with all of the entries that came into this chilly photo contest. We received all kinds of shots that nailed the prompt, and after much deliberation we came down to the two winners that will take home prizes. Read along and see the winners.
Google's Project Fi isn't so much a revolution in pricing as it is a rethinking of how a carrier should work.
Not many people have a strong liking for the way their current mobile carrier operates. You can find the same stories about bad customer support, data speeds and phones related to all of the major carrier in the U.S., and Google's hoping to get some of those disgruntled customers to come try its new offering called Project Fi.
The premise is pretty simple: Pay for the data you plan to use, and get a refund the next month for data you don't end up using. Your money gets you access to the Sprint and T-Mobile networks, as well as thousands of Google-certified WiFi hotspots to help reduce mobile data usage. The network extends around the world with the same pay-for-use model while roaming, and no matter what your phone preference is you can only get a Nexus 6 right now.
It's understandable, and downright intuitive — but let's see how the value actually compares to the other carriers.
Following up on its first-quarter earnings, Qualcomm as part of its Q2 2015 earnings said that it's reducing its expectations for the second half of the fiscal year due to lower sales of its Snapdragon processors.
