Smartphone dating etiquette tips
U.S. Cellular offers tips on enhancing your love life using a smartphone this Valentine’s Day
Dating has changed drastically over the years, and with the newest smartphones, such as the iPhone 6s or Samsung Galaxy S 6, users can find “the one” right from the palm of their hand. The Pew Research Center reports 21 percent of cellphone owners in a committed relationship have felt closer to their spouse or partner because of exchanges they had online or via text message. However, finding and maintaining the connection can be difficult, so U.S. Cellular is offering Maine smartphone users etiquette tips to enhance their love lives this Valentine’s Day.
“The latest mobile devices on a high-quality network can enhance relationships and keep couples connected more than ever before,” says Matt Kasper, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in New England. “No matter where you are, you can rely on your mobile device to enhance positive relationships and keep connected to loved ones from your first date to your anniversary.”

Kongregate’s Best Games of 2015
These weekly wastes of precious time are incredibly fun for me to seek out and enjoy long enough to put forth a decent review, whether that involves playing games, watching a YouTube series or finding that odd webpage.
One of my favorite Flash game sites is Kongregate. Some people don’t like to play games on sites – I do. For me, playing on my work computer, when I play on a site like Kongregate, Armor Games or NewGrounds, I feel more secure. Additionally, they have meta-games. You can earn points, level up, get badges and, in the case of Kongregate, Kongpanions – little pets that are cute. A game about playing games is nothing new. But Kongregate took it a new level with their Best of 2015, encouraging players to fill in badges they may have missed last year at the beginning of this one.
Cable-industry disruptor back with new Internet service
NEW YORK — Cable's pricey Internet packages may get some competition from the founder of Aereo, whose first attempt to shake up the cable industry was quashed by the Supreme Court.
Starry will be a wireless service that, unlike cellphones, promises to be speedier than cable and designed for single locations such as homes and small businesses. The service is expected to launch in Boston this summer, with plans to expand to other U.S. cities and even internationally, though no time frame was given.
In announcing the project in New York on Wednesday, its founder, Chet Kanojia, decried the lack of competition in U.S. broadband.

There is too much noise.
This is a short and beautiful pixel exploration game. Your character is nothing more than a sprite, so things are so zoomed in they seem blocky and distorted. As you explore, the camera zooms out to give you a better view on the world, and things come into focus.
