If you told a random member of the tech media a year ago that one of the biggest names interviewed by Kara Swisher at her own conference in 2014 would be Kim Kardashian West, you’d probably receive a dumb look and a quick dismissal. Yet that’s exactly what happened at today’s Code/Mobile conference, where the reality TV and social media star reflected on the role of mobile… Read More

In what’s sure to be the first shot in a salvo of big new rounds for these (no-longer) startups, Palo Alto, Calif.-based Wealthfront has raised roughly $70… Read More
Thanks to the built-in features in most games and apps, it’s become increasingly difficult to lose something you’re working on. Your phone or tablet can suddenly explode, but if you had an internet connection, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get right back to what you were working on with some other device. One thing that hasn’t changed though is the juggle involved in switching between an app or game on a phone and tablet. Your data may be syncing up behind the scenes, but not every app does it, and you still hunt down the app, open your file, and remember what exactly you were doing.
Twitter has no short-term plans to monetize Vine, a social product that it purchased in its infancy.
The information was shared during the company’s earnings call, following a quarterly financial report that included stronger-than-expected third-quarter performance but soft guidance and user growth that investors found troubling. Twitter is down more than 10 percent in after-hours trading. Read More
So the last time I talked to Nextbit, they had raised $18 million from Accel Partners and Google Ventures and had put together a veteran team made out of early Android folk who helped build Google’s mobile OS into what it is today. But they refused to share anything about what they were working on. Now after building up a team of 22 people from Android, HTC and Dropbox, they’re… Read More

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is issuing new guidelines for how states should deal with people at risk of contracting Ebola. The CDC now recommends that those with a high risk of exposure voluntarily isolate themselves and agree to be actively monitored for symptoms. Few people in the US will fall into the high-risk group, as the CDC defines it as people who have cared for an Ebola patient without protective equipment and people who have been stuck with a needle used by someone else exposed to the virus.
Ever since Apple announced the Apple Watch, it’s been easy to let the imagination wander a bit. It’s the first product out of Apple in a long time, perhaps since the iPhone, that feels truly exciting and new. Much of that is thanks to the user interface, which has a very distinct look from the UIs of the iPhone, iPad or even Macs. YouTuber Lucas Menge has also been inspired to… Read More
Twitter reported its third quarter earnings today, and despite robust performance, the company’s stock continues to struggle. Twitter’s booked $361 million in revenue over the last three months, more than double what it did for the same period in 2013. It also hit its marks on profit $7 million, which is exactly what investors were expecting.
