So, when will your device actually get Android Oreo?

 Google officially just took the wraps off of Android Oreo, but there are still some questions left to be answered — most notably, precisely when each device will be getting the latest version of the mobile operating system. Due to Android’s openness and a variety of different factors on the manufacturing side, it’s not an easy question to answer, but we’ll break it… Read More

Android Oreo vs iOS 11: What’s different and what’s the same?

 Google just announced Android Oreo and it packs a handful of new features. Some are at the system level that speeds up the system and extends the battery life while others are features that will change the way users interact with their phone.

Bill Gates and Elon Musk share a daily scheduling habit that helps them tackle their busy routines

Bill Gates Elon Musk

Bill Gates and Elon Musk are two of the biggest names in tech.

Gates cofounded Microsoft in 1975, helping to spark the PC revolution. Now he focuses most of his time on philanthropy.

Musk founded PayPal and currently splits his week traveling between Tesla and SpaceX.

Both men also share one habit that’s helped them navigate their jam-packed schedules: They plan out every moment of their days.

Gates and Musk are both said to adhere to schedules divided up into five-minute slots.

The reason for this intricate planning? Well, for one, breaking your day up into small segments can boost your productivity, according to Fast Company’s Stephanie Vozza.

Plus, this kind of intensive scheduling keeps you accountable. Presumably, when you’re planning things down to the minute, you’ve got to set aside specific time to relax and recharge. You can’t just doze off for an hour — that’s 12 schedule slots down the drain.

Pulling together a segmented schedule can be helpful even for those of us who don’t run giant philanthropic organizations or innovative tech companies. You don’t have to chop your day up into five minute slices, either — there are plenty of different schedule structures to choose from.

You just need to find one that’s right for you.

The 10 best jobs in America right now

Think it’s impossible to find a job with tons of openings, that pays exceedingly well, and that you’ll really enjoy doing?

We’d probably be skeptical, too, if it weren’t for Glassdoor’s annual 50 Best Jobs in America report.

To find the best jobs in the US, the job site identified careers with the highest overall “job score,” which is determined by weighing three factors equally: earning potential (median annual base salary), job satisfaction rating, and number of job openings.

For a job title to be considered, it had to receive at least 100 salary reports and 100 job satisfaction ratings shared by US-based employees over the past year. The number of job openings per job title represents active job listings on Glassdoor as of January 1, 2017.

Below are the 10 best jobs in America. You can click here for the top 25.

As Android O debuts, Marshmallow still commands about a third of devices

 The arrival of a new Android version isn’t nearly as rare as a total solar eclipse, but Google’s hoping the solar system will share the spotlight as it takes the wraps off of its latest mobile operating system. Among other things, Android O will likely be getting an official release date and alphabetic dessert name, with “Oreo” looking like the top contender. So, how… Read More

30,000 people are descending on Oregon for a festival that's like Burning Man for eclipse-chasers — here are the photos

oregon eclipse festival 2017 burning man festival

The total solar eclipse has earned its own Burning Man-like festival.

About 30,000 eclipse-chasers descended on Big Summit Prairie, Oregon, this week to camp, dance, and make cosmic connections at the Oregon Eclipse Festival, a weeklong tribute to the August 21 eclipse. It’s possibly the biggest and most remote of eclipse gatherings in the US.

Thirteen festival promoters from around the world joined forces to organize the festival, which takes on a Burning Man flavor with its art installations, workshops, and seven concern stages. Tickets are sold out, but all-week passes are reselling on StubHub for $285 per person.

We scoured Instagram for the best photos inside Oregon Eclipse Festival.

Oregonians will be treated to one of the best viewings of the total solar eclipse — when the moon crosses between the Earth and the sun and blocks out the sun’s light — on August 21.

Big Summit Prairie, a giant, privately owned clearing in the crown of the Ochoco Mountains, is the perfect setting for the country’s biggest and most remote eclipse gathering. Festival organizers chose the idyllic spot for its high likelihood of clear skies.

These states will have the best views of the solar eclipse »

The first-ever Oregon Eclipse Festival is the result of a perfect storm: speakers, artists, and over 400 musical acts (mostly electronica) will come together in the path of the eclipse.

The property owner agreed to rent 300 acres of land and provide much of the machinery used to move earth, widen roads, and build the seven stages for the weeklong event.
