By Annie Gasparro WSJ Mon., Feb. 11, 2019 Candy lovers are searching for a new sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. For the first time in over a century, the original conversation hearts aren’t rolling off conveyor belts by the millions. The debacle, caused by candy-maker Necco going out of business last year, has faithful fans buying up the last batch of Sweethearts brand hearts on the black market and looking for other ways to convey romantic sentiments—“Be Mine” or “UR Hot”—expressed so succinctly on the pressed-sugar Valentine’s Day candy. Robin Helfand, owner of Robin’s Candy in Great Barrington, Mass., said she got word early last summer that Necco would be ceasing production and bought 1,000 pounds of Sweethearts. “Sort of our version of insider trading,” she said.

caption I switched from iPhone to Android, and I’m not looking back. source Clancy Morgan I’ve been a diehard Apple user for as long as I can remember, and I’ve exclusively used iPhones since shortly after the first one came out in 2007. When it came time to retire my iPhone 6S this year, I was frustrated by the high price of Apple’s two newest iPhones, the XS and XR. After reading about the well-reviewed OnePlus 6T, I decided to give it – and Google’s Android operating system – a try. After three weeks with the OnePlus, I’m in love with its high-end feel at an affordable price, and with Android’s customizability and intuitiveness.

source Carlo Allegri/Reuters New data from mobile research firm Apptopia shows how many hours Android and iOS device sunk into the most popular smartphone games – and there were a few surprises on the list.

As a heads up, every game on this list is free to download, largely … [Read more...] about Smartphone gamers spent more time playing ‘Candy Crush Saga’ and ‘Clash of Clans’ than ‘Fortnite’ this summer
