It was not too long after Valentine’s Day when we brought you word that German table tennis (or ping pong) champ as well as the former top player in the world for that sport, Timo Boll, would go up against a one handed robot known as KUKA in a game of table tennis this March 11th. Well, the results have been posted, and Timo Boll managed to eke out a victory. The thing is, the entire deal was an ad, as it depicted how the KUKA robot might not be the best in table tennis, although it is the best in robotics, or at least this is what we are led to believe.
Whenever one receives good service, it is always the courteous thing to mention “thank you”, as well as leave a tip on the table to boot. Well, in this world where virtual payments are catching on in popularity, we have received word that from next week onwards, iPhone owners will not only be able to continue making their coffee purchases using the Starbucks mobile app, but they also have the option of tipping their barista to boot. Yes sir, Starbucks will be updating their mobile app this coming March 19th to include digital tipping capability for the first time ever, in addition to making the app a whole lot more easy to navigate.
