Microsoft to shut down Wunderlist in favor of its new app, To-Do

Microsoft acquired the popular mobile to do list application Wunderlist back in 2015, and now it’s preparing users for its eventual demise with the release of its new application “To-Do,” announced today. The new app was built by the team behind Wunderlist, and will bring in the favorite elements of that app in the months ahead, Microsoft says. The company also added that it won’t shut down Wunderlist until it’s confident that it has “incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.”

$9 billion startup Stripe is automating the complicated process of starting a company

Smart Keyboard App

Smart keyboard app monitors typing, predicts emotion

Using affective computing, the Cornell Tech team’s Keymochi emotion-predicting keyboard app is being developed for eventual commercial and healthcare use. A working prototype has been developed based on the development team’s own exaggerated emotional data, and the predictive accuracy is already 82 percent. The app works by monitoring a user’s typing speed, phone movements, punctuation and general sentiment of the message, whether text or email. Data is encrypted, and the app only saves the way in which a message was typed, not the content.

Apple Watch

Apple Watch stand turns your favorite wearable into a mini Macintosh

The Elago W3 stand looks like a miniature Macintosh and works with Series 1 and Series 2 Apple Watches (both 38mm and 42mm versions). The simple device was designed to support Apple’s nightstand mode, allowing you to use it as an alarm clock on your bedside table by just slipping the watch bands into the dedicated slot. It looks like a legitimate (albeit tiny) Macintosh, and even comes equipped with the floppy drive cutout.
