  • Amazon has officially patented a moving warehouse, of sorts. In addition to relying on the recently reported "fulfillment centers" in major U.S. cities to supply and service their planned fleet of aerial delivery drones, the company has introduced a more mobile version of the same idea. Using traditional freight train railroad tracks and infrastructure, which is naturally already in place across the country, Amazon is tinkering with the idea of developing drone-hubs that ride atop the trains.The idea is that the train does the long-haul travel, while the hubs would serve as repairing hubs for UAVs that launch from the train for local deliveries, and return for maintenance and further delivery pickups. It's quite clever, and evident of Amazon's strong focus on creating a powerful drone-delivery system of their own. The publicly available patent calls these hubs "Ground-based mobile maintenance facilities for unmanned aerial vehicles" which "may be coupled to locomotives, con..

  • Back in May a leak told us to expect a new line of own-brand Android smartphones from T-Mobile to land at some point this year. It would be called REVVL, and the first device in the series was going to be the REVVL T1. Today the existence of this upcoming handset was confirmed by T-Mobile itself, because someone working for the carrier uploaded the relevant support documents already, even if the REVVL isn't official yet. This gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect. Although the documents simply call the phone REVVL, every detail they reveal lines up perfectly with what we had heard about the REVVL T1. So either T-Mobile forgot to add the T1 suffix, or perhaps it changed its plans and won't have an entire REVVL line, just one device. Time will tell. Anyway, this REVVL comes with a 5.5-inch touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. Its main camera is a 13 MP unit, while the selfie snapper has 5 MP resolution. A 3,000 mAh ba..

  • With the upcoming launch of Google’s mobile-first index, digital marketers are preparing for a proliferation of “micro-moments”. There has been a lot of noise around this seemingly seismic shift, but this trend was set in motion years ago and we have plenty of data to hand on what makes or breaks a mobile SEO campaign. Undoubtedly, mobile SEO is distinct from its desktop counterpart in significant – sometimes very subtle – ways. As mobile usage continues to grow, user behaviors and expectations change too. Simply resizing the desktop site for a smaller screen won’t do. Moreover, the evidence that the desktop and mobile algorithms must function based on different factors is right in front of us.

  • Face it: You’re not a literary author, and people aren’t hanging on to every word you write. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have comprehensive information on a web page, but users also don’t want to scroll forever — especially on mobile. Content on mobile needs to make it easier for users to get to the main points without cutting out the content, as users might want to dig into the details more at times. More than ever, the structure of your content is important, and your content needs to be navigable, skimmable and digestible. Table of contents A table of contents is a great way to show how you have organized your content, and combined with HTML bookmarks, it allows users to quickly jump to sections of a page that may interest them.
