Blowing off work email at night is good for your health

Technology makes our lives more convenient in many ways but in other ways it just makes us slaves to our jobs since we’re never off the clock and are expected to respond to work emails at all hours of the day. Psych Central brings us word of a new study from the College of Business at the University of Texas at Arlington that shows checking work email at night can have a significant impact on our overall mental health and should be avoided if possible.

The worst Apple analyst ever thinks Apple is doomed for a ridiculous new reason

Here at BGR, we’ve long been fascinated by the musings of Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry, who seems to shift wildly back and forth as to whether Apple is doomed to catastrophic failure or primed for unparalleled success. One year ago, for instance, he declared that Apple would “disappear” and become “irrelevant” unless it released an Apple Watch by last May. More recently, Chowdhry predicted that Apple would sell 42 million Apple Watches and would have a highly unlikely 100,000 Apple Watch apps available at launch… not bad for a company that should have become irrelevant by now since it still hasn’t released the Apple Watch!

LG Watch Urbane LTE webOS

I can’t believe I’m saying this but… webOS looks like a great smartwatch platform

I can’t believe I’m saying this but… webOS looks like a great smartwatch platform

Of all the failed smartphone platforms I’ve seen over the years, webOS’s death was the most tragic because it really was a wonderfully intuitive platform that was  especially good for multitasking. Ever since Palm got bought out by HP, which subsequently sold webOS to LG, the platform has basically been dead although it always pops up every now and then running on a TV or a washing machine. However, a great video of LG’s Watch Urbane LTE has me thinking that webOS might have a 17th life as a wearables platform. More →

Comcast finds an exciting new way to anger subscribers

If you are already paying for HBO through your cable provider, then you should have no problem watching HBO Go on your device of choice at home, right? Right… unless you’re a Comcast subscriber. The Verge’s Chris Welch points out that PS4 owners who also subscribe to HBO through Comcast still aren’t able to access the app on their devices even though it released to the console earlier this week.
