TWITTER might be building a paid subscription service for “power” users.

TWITTER might be building a paid subscription service for “power” users. According the The Verge, the social media giant is surveying users to determine the size of a market for pay-to-play tweeting. This would mean a more robust platform of tools for marketers, journalists, and others who want the most from Twitter. This premium tool set will provide valuable viewing, posting, and signaling tools like alerts, trends and activity analysis, advanced analytics, and composing and posting tools all in one customizable dashboard. It will be designed to make it easier than ever to keep up with multiple interests, grow your audience, and see even more great content and information in real-time. This comes at a rough time for Twitter, and any potential influx of revenue has to be a welcome though. March 23, 2017

Electric car charging towers could replace gas stations, one day. THE CHARGING TOWER is a new concept that Digital Trends recently reported on. The idea is to replace current gas stations with charging stations in the future as electric cars become more popular. Stacking up cars like dominoes, the tower looks more like a parking tower than a gas station. This is important because electric car technology seems to indicate that charging will take hours longer than a standard “gasup” takes today.

Microsoft slips by Apple to grab tablet satisfaction honors. MICROSOFT won the J.D. Power tablet survey, as reported by Mashable. Although the “tablet wars” of the past aren’t as hot as they used to be, it’s still an upset (albeit a close one) for Apple, who dominated the tablet market for years. Microsoft tablet functionality won out over Apple’s iPad; the non third-party keyboard probably helped with that. But Microsoft also won in the design category, which has to sting. Surprising nobody, LG, Asus, Samsung, and Acer came in far behind Apple and Microsoft. April 7, 2017

Panther Drone Delivers Package by Air and Land. PANTHER DRONES strutted their stuff recently with capability to fly and roll along on land, delivering packages with aplomb. Similar to military-style land and-air drones, the Panther has a few advantages when it comes to residential delivery — like avoiding air hazards such as trees and power lines. A four-wheeled drone’s first aerial package delivery test showed off a special touch by also driving up to the doorstep of its pretend customer. That capability to deliver by both air and land makes the Panther drone an unusual competitor in the crowded drone delivery space. But the drone’s limited delivery range may pose a challenge in competing against the delivery drones of Google and Amazon. Unfortunately, the Panther is relatively heavy, so it has a limited range compared to other prospective delivery drones. March 30, 2017
