LG G6 sales aren’t doing it for the company

LG says that its mobile business basically saw no change compared to second quarter of 2016. And that’s all due to the “weaker than expected” sales of premium smartphones, a.k.a. the LG G6.

Fitbit could be laying off as much as 10% of its crew

Fitbit could be laying off as much as 10% of its crew

Not so long ago, Fitbit, whose name has almost become synonymous with fitness trackers, purchased smartwatch darling Pebble, and, in the process, killed the latter’s smartwatches. Shortly after that, it purchased Vector Watch, another smartwatch maker startup.
