flow hard

SwiftKey has long been one of our favourite and most useful apps. Then in 2013 they brought us SwiftKey Flow, which combined the predictive text capabilities of SwiftKey with swipe typing on their keyboard, which made one handed typing a breeze. Now they have touted SwiftKey Flow Hard as the next step.

The company’s co-founder Ben Medlock states that in order for them to move into the future, sometimes you have to look to the past. That’s exactly what they have done here, and have developed a way to use swipe typing on desktop and laptop keyboards.

Ellen

Ellen DeGeneres was widely approved by the public as a good choice for host of the Academy Awards of the weekend. She is widely popular and her quirky comedic ability is much sought after in the hosting stakes as the last couple of years have seen very negativity-driven comedy, with the likes of Ricky Gervais and Seth McFarlane.

Netflix all but put the once massive video- and later DVD-rental chain out of business by offering its DVD-by-mail rental system at the end of the 90s. Then their streaming service revolutionised how Americans, and later Europeans, watches and consumed content.

So, after Amazon revealed the Prime Air it felt it deserved to let off some steam and have some fun. They have created a video taking a jab at the ecommerce company. Check out the trailer after the break: (more…)

Social ‘hashtag’ gets what it deserves (video)

hashtag

The social phenomenon that is hashtags was meant to make it easier for people to find tweets or posts regarding a certain topic, but pop culture completely ruined it with people ‘hashtagging’ every single thought. Calling it mildly annoying might be an understatement. #irritatingashell

Jimmy Fallon has taken it upon himself to make a mockery of the hashtag and we think it is a great chuckle for anyone that has the same feelings about it. This time he has made the insert with Jonah Hill, but last year he made one with Justin Timberlake as well.
