Dave Partners Reviews: Top 3 Concentration Apps

These apps will keep you off social media, on-target, and able to bring total focus to your next big project. 

By the Dave Partners Team

Tech people are natural multi-taskers. We work in offices where everything moves at the speed of light, there are always several dozen things to be done, and workers who wait until one project is complete to begin another will soon find themselves behind the rest of the pack.

How Apple Could Own Music

We’re still coming down from the massive spectacle of the Grammys, and music is on everyone’s mind. But at TechCrunch, they’re taking this talk further, into a fascinating look at how the music industry might change in the 21st century: Namely, with Apple currently building a Spotify-killing streaming service, wouldn’t it make sense for the most powerful tech company in the world to cut out the middleman, and simply become a record label itself?

Do We Need a Tech Museum?

The Internet Archive's work proves that there's a real appetite to re-visit and appreciate technology from the past. 

By the Dave Partners Team

Late last week, the Internet Archive released thousands of old video games from the ‘80s and ‘90s. The list included just about everything you wasted your time on as a kid: Oregon Trail (hey, that counted as learning!), Sim City, Prince of Persia, and nearly all of the other greatest hits from the era.

Last night’s Super Bowl was a full-on spectacle: Surprise victories, catches that seemed to defy the laws of physics, about a thousand star-studded ads, and finally, Katy Perry showing up on what appeared to be a real-life Transformer. (Or possibly a vehicle designed for the Thundercats.)
