Glympse Takes Over Travel Updates Automatically

TheStreet (Jan. 21, 2014) — Glympse is a geolocation app that updates people of your choosing on your location for a set period of time. Easier and faster than a text, the program is now available in many major car brands including BMW, Mercedes, Ford, and General Motors to reduce texting and driving, and it's even available on Facebook and Twitter. However, users' privacy is protected because the updates only go to selected friends or family members. Recipients can also turn off Glympse if they don't need to see the location.

Amazon Thinks It Can Beat Blackberry at Smartphones

TheStreet (June 19, 2014) — Amazon may be late to the smartphone market with its new Fire phone, but it clearly thinks it can do better than Blackberry. Blackberry once owned the mobile phone market, but has never recovered from its decision to keep the keyboard. Ari Zoldan, CEO of Quantum Networks, says the key difference between the two companies is that Amazon has the safety net of its retail operation to fall back on, whereas Blackberry's sole business is the phone. Zoldan says Blackberry isn't going down without a fight though, in its latest earnings report the company said it sold 1.6 million phones. Debra Borchardt reports from Wall Street.
