Sony’s PS4 Outsold Both Xbox One And Nintendo Switch Last Month

It is no secret that Sony’s PS4 console has generally outsold the Xbox One ever since they both came out back in 2013. In fact the PS4 has been in the lead the whole time, even though some months have seen the Xbox One outsell the PlayStation 4 in the United States. And now, the latest figures from The NPD Group show that the PlayStation 4 has outsold not just the Xbox One, but also the relatively new Nintendo Switch in the United States last month. This is surprising since the Switch is so new still. Both Microsoft and Sony have released several versions of these consoles. Sony added the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim to their lineup, while Microsoft launched the Xbox One S and will release the Xbox One X very soon. So there are a lot of factors at work here, one of them...

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Android | RSSTrying the dual live stream today on Facebook and YouTube! For the most part it was successful, with a small audio glitch at the beginning. Glitch only happened for a few seconds, so I left it in the video part. Audio was cut.

You run into that one person looking down at their smartphone, oblivious to the world and slowing everyone down. You would like to curse at them, but you know you do it yourself. Are smartphones slowing us down? I just read an interesting article on Dineability.com. A popular New York restaurant noticed the service to be slow. They decided to bring in a group to see why. This group reviewed the surveillance system and noticed a trend that not made the servers slower, but the customer. The group had the restaurant pull up tapes from 10 years prior to figure out the problem. What they found was that the customer was slowing the process down because...
