Inbox by Gmail: the only place your email feels home

The tweet above means something like: “email will never die.” But I actually wasn’t sure about that. I replied to myself (which I do way too often): “Save this and prove me wrong in 10 years.” 10 years is a long time, but after using Inbox by Gmail I’m sure email will still exist in 10 years.

RETRY is a hard game that isn't as frustrating as that other one

It's always interesting to see something new from a company that's mainly built around one brand. Rovio made a lot of games, but most of them were Angry Birds related. I don't know if the formula doesn't work anymore, but the hype from the beginning is gone. It must hurt them to see that one guy conquered the world with a game (about a bird), without a huge marketing budget.

To find the next thing, Rovio set up a team called LVL11 to experiment with new games. The first outcome called RETRY has been released and when you start playing it, you might think of - exactly - Flappy Bird.
