Best Wear OS watch faces: analog, digital, modern, stylish

If you happen to be a proud owner of a couple of oil wells, then chances are you can afford having several sparkling Swiss-made watches and switch between them depending on the occasion – one for golfing, one for those fancy receptions, one for an afternoon of sailing the yacht across the bay, and so on. That kind of luxury is beyond the grasp of mere mortals, but a Wear OS smartwatch can be the ideal alternative.

One of the many things to love about smartwatches is how switching to a different watch face can feel like having a completely different timepiece. But with thousands of watch …

Old-school phones, modern reincarnations: Motorola MPx200

HMD Global has been causing quite a stir in the mobile community of late! Sure, its new line of Android powered Nokia smartphones have been surprisingly well-received by everyone since their introductions back at Mobile World Congress 2018 last month, but there was one single phone that garnered the most attention – and that was the Nokia 8810! This isn’t a new strategy for HMD Global, who interestingly enough has been on this retro kick starting last year with the Nokia 3310.

While we certainly love these throwbacks, giving us a taste of the simpler times back then, it got us …

A math legend just died. He literally reinvented aspects of modern math.


Not going to class isn’t typically something good to boast about. But perhaps the late Vladimir Voevodsky is the exception to the rule. 

Voevodsky is credited with founding new fields of mathematics, such as motivic homotopy theory, and a computer tool to help check mathematical proofs, as the New York Times explored in an obituary this week. The latter was a feat that other mathematicians didn’t dare approach, but Voevodsky’s effort has overwhelmingly benefited the industry — and everyone, really — by allowing mathematicians to fact-check their work.
