GoPro has been on a steady downward slope for the past few years, at least as far as profits go. The company laid off 100 workers in January 2016 in response to weak sales. This continued in November 2016 with another 200 layoffs, followed by 270 more the following March. The situation doesn't seem to be improving, so GoPro is leaving the drone market entirely, and cutting more jobs in the process. Read More
Drones are a lot of fun, but they can also be pricey. To help alleviate that second part, Amazon is offering the GoPro Karma with either the HERO5 Black for $899 or the HERO6 Black for $999. That's a solid $200 off each bundle. Read More

Among the new features that did make the cut for Android, however, are widgets, a persistent "quick-add notification," new settings, the ability to complete a task by swiping left, a redesigned task list, and initial support for tablets. On the "improvements" side of things, Todoist's latest update brings better accessibility, overall performance, and general UI/UX tweaks, among other things. Read More
Everyone hates junk mail, right? I'm not talking about spam emails you get in your inbox on a daily basis, which you may not even notice if you're using Gmail. I'm talking about those pesky paper ads that arrive over snail mail almost every single day, burying the lone letters you do actually care about in an ocean of, well, crap.
