Its from a company founded in 2016 and all the glass door reviews are good.I am always on edge about sales jobs because I heard horror stories about people being fucked over.Any questions I should ask tomorrow to see if they are real or full of it?

A Silicon Valley “flying car” startup, Kitty Hawk, reportedly backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, released a video Monday of its airborne prototype and announced plans for deliveries of a “personal flying machine” this year.“Our mission is to make the dream of personal flight a reality.We believe when everyone has access to personal flight, a new, limitless world of opportunity will open up to them,” said a statement on the website of the Kitty Hawk company, based in Google’s home town of Mountain View, California.“Today we’re announcing our first prototype of The Flyer, a personal flying machine that will become available for sale by the end of 2017.”The video showed the single-seat aircraft -- with two pontoons and a spider web-like platform -- taking off from a lake at an undisclosed location and hovering above the water, where it is meant to be used.The craft, propelled by eight rotors, takes off and lands vertically, like a helicopter.

Don’t call it a security system: Notion is a “home awareness kit” that offers a somewhat different value proposition.Like a standard DIY security setup, Notion is built around a wireless hub and sensors that you place around your house.You can place a sensor on a window to detect if the window is opened and to listen for sounds of breakage.Stick one next to your smoke alarm and it turns it into an instant remote alert system, letting you know via a push notification if the siren goes off.But Notion doesn’t tie into other smart home components or systems, so you’ll need to depend on other devices—and their apps—to change the temperature if there’s a freeze danger, to turn on a light if you hear a noise at night, or to close your garage door if it’s been left open.You “knock twice” on the sensor’s shell to wake it up, then scan a QR code on the backside with your phone’s camera.

The Montana congressional race between Democrat Rob Quist and Republican just got a little more colorful.In the spot above, Quist downgrades his opponent as a “millionaire from New Jersey” (the tag previously has been “billionaire”) and takes a bullseye shot across some open space at a TV set displaying one of Gianforte’s paid spots.Per guns.com, Gianforte wasted no time firing back at Quist, literally, with an exploding-screen ad of his own.The twist, cleverly, is that Gianforte blows up one of hisBoth ads hit the airwaves April 20.Quist’s is the more successful of the two spots in terms of evoking something like a Clint Eastwood movie feel, but only time will tell who racks up the most YouTube views.

Let’s start with a simple question.Are you more likely to buy a product if it’s recommended to you by a friend or seen from a random ad?In the 20th century, traditional ads were the driving force of how businesses grew.And that thought continues to this day.But can ads ever become a gift that keeps on giving?It’s like Christmas every day!

Planned Parenthood has been threatened repeatedly with defunding in several states since Trump became our 45th president.But has also, as a consequence, received a serious spike in donations (40 times its normal rate, according to the Guardian).The organization’s leaders are now looking to 500 startups’ seed program to help them capitalize on the recent surge and harness technology to help further the momentum.500 will donate $100,000 to the growing trove Planned Parenthood has already received since Trump took office as well as kick off a hackathon for the organization.Planned Parenthood team members will also receive mentorship for its period tracking app Spot On to help them find ways to improve the product and grow the user base.The American Civil Liberties Union did something similar this year, joining Y Combinator’s winter batch to gain mentorship and network with some of the Valley’s most powerful allies in what is being called “The Resistance” — a growing progressive movement to confront the Trump presidency.

My friend had a Sega Master System.The Dragon's Trap stood out, however, and has for many years remained one of my fondest video game memories.Wonder Boy III, in particular, was a fascinating Metroid-style game, with gated-off areas accessible only in certain animal forms, necessitating backtracking and exploration, and brimming with secrets.French developer Lizardcube has done a remarkable job with the game's remaster, and has series developer Ryuichi Nishizawa's blessing on the project.Perhaps the coolest thing about the remaster is the ability to swap seamlessly between the oldschool 8-bit graphics (now in widescreen and 60 frames-per-second) and the truly gorgeous hand-drawn cartoon-style graphics of animator Ben Fiquet.My kids have enjoyed playing in 8-bit mode fare more than I expected.

A report surfaced claiming that Uber secretly tracked Lyft drivers using an internal software program called “Hell.” Hell not only let Uber see how many Lyft drivers were available for rides and what their prices were, but also figure out which of its drivers were also driving for Lyft.It was reported that Apple is also putting together a team to design its own battery management chip for the iPhone.By designing its own chips, Apple could go a bit further than the standard power management chip, making the iPhone slightly more efficient in power usage.In other Apple news, the California DMV released a list of companies allowed to test autonomous vehicles on the roads of California.Lyft confirms major $600 million raise, bringing total funding to $2.61 billionLyft confirmed on its blog that it has raised a total of $600 million in new funding, with a post-money valuation of $7.5 billion.

Between all the cocktails, coffees, and meals, the dating life can cost you a pretty penny—a penny that costs more than a really nice computer.According to Match’s annual “Singles in America” survey, unmarried Americans spend about $1,596 on dating every year.The 100-question survey went out to over 5,500 singles all over the country, and asked them how much they spent on their dating life every month in 2016.$1,600 a year might not seem like a ton of money—and it’s a small price to pay for love—but it’s a big jump from the same survey’s results three years ago where the average was less than half that.It’s unclear if the old survey included date preparation costs, but that’s still quite a difference.Of course, the average also varied depending on where survey participants lived.

Technology is completely redefining what it means to help your customer base, with use of live chat expected to grow by 87 percent over the next 12 months to 18 months.Why waste time hopping from department to department on a call when you can just type out a few questions and get straight to the heart of an issue?But even with this technology in place, not all businesses are equipped to handle live chat -- not to mention many of the other platforms now used for customer service.No matter the format, the goal for customer service teams is to provide a fast, clear and actionable reply.Sure, training employees and providing top-notch software can carry a hefty price tag, but you want staff who can reply by phone, email or real-time chat -- no matter what the cost.A recent Forrester survey discovered that this investment greatly improved individual team members’ productivity.

Qualcomm is seeking damages from Apple, alleging that the iPhone maker interfered with long-term agreements between the chip company and licensees that manufacture the iPhone and iPad, and encouraged actions by regulators against the company by giving government agencies "false and misleading information."When iPhones with the Qualcomm chipset still outperformed iPhones that used a chipset from key rival Intel, Apple is said to have publicly claimed that there was “no discernible difference” between iPhones using Intel chipsets and those using Qualcomm chipsets, when it knew the opposite to be true, according to a filing Monday by Qualcomm.Apple warned that if Qualcomm were to make or sponsor public comparisons of the Intel and Qualcomm-based iPhones, Apple would use the marketing resources at its disposal to “retaliate” against Qualcomm and its standing as an Apple chipset supplier would be jeopardized.Apple is seeking nearly US$1 billion in compensation for paying excessive royalties to Qualcomm.The smallest salable unit for a cellular SEP license should be no greater than the baseband processor chipset, Apple argued.It also wants Qualcomm to negotiate single-patent licenses rather than offer a license to its patents as a single portfolio.

Following considerable backlash over its decision to partner with controversial key reselling marketplace G2A on the publishing of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, Gearbox has announced it has 'begun executing on [its] extraction process' after the company failed to agree to basically completely abandon its current business model.As detailed in our hands-on preview, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is effectively a rehashing of the 2011 first-person shooter under IP holder People Can Fly.Gearbox, which was responsible for the questionable choice to add Duke Nukem as a character to the game, announced that it would be producing a collector's edition of the game as part of its publishing agreement - then, for reasons known only to the company itself, decided to partner with G2A, a company which allows third parties to resell game keys that often turn out to be fraudulent, stolen, or paid for with stolen credit cards, on said edition.The result was predictable: As soon as game bloggers and YouTubers got wind of the deal, they turned on Gearbox.Equally controversial YouTube personality John Bain (AKA TotalBiscuit) announced a Gearbox boycott despite G2A's 2016 moves to lower fraud levels on its platform.When others followed Bain, Gearbox released a statement which failed to explain why it had chosen G2A in the first place but came with a bizarre string of demands which effectively required G2A to completely overhaul its business model.
