Instant messaging is awesome because you can connect with people from around the world in an instant. But the thing about messaging is that it’s all just text, or communication by thumb, if you will.
However, humans weren’t really designed to communicate with their thumbs. Yea, we’ve got emojis and gifs now, but none of those have the emotional impact of someone’s voice or, better yet, their presence.
HTC has been trying to release a smartwatch for the longest time. Most recently, it was reported that the Taiwanese company would be making an Android Wear smartwatch in collaboration with Under Armour. If you’ve been waiting for one, unfortunately, HTC is scrapping its smartwatch plans for the time being.
After news broke that Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra was leaving the company to return home, the first question on everyone’s mind was: Where would he go now? After some speculation, we now have an answer — it’s Facebook.
