Sonos has introduced the ability to manage multiple accounts, so people with music streaming to the sound system throughout their house no longer have to share a single login. This lets everyone in the family or a full set of roommates each utilize Sonos in their own way.

Gmail Blue Inbox, a service we posted about just last night. Previously codenamed Bigtop, Inbox by Gmail is a full reimagining of how an email product should work, and how users should interact with their email.
