After years of speculation, 2017 appears to be the year when the Internet of Things becomes an ever-present part of our lives. The rise of smart speakers like the Amazon Echo or Google Home and wearables like the Fitbit means that smart objects are making our lives easier.

But while there has been plenty of discussion about the smart home, smart technology also has the potential to radically change the workplace. At a minimum, we should expect small changes in fields such as communication or security in the very near future.

Hopper travel app helps you decipher — or avoid — basic economy airfares

The Hopper flight search app just gained a new feature. It’s called the Fair Bear, and though the name is corny, the big fuzzy animal might save you some money — or at least some aggravation.
