My sister's birthday is December 19, which is a bummer for me because the gifts I send are in the mix with the holiday packages and take longer than usual to get to her. More than 16 billion cards, letters, flats and packages are expected to be delivered for the 2016 holiday season.

The future lately is being taken over by robots and computers. It all looks like it's supposed to make life easier for humans, but right now it's putting humans out of jobs. This store in Sweden doesn't have any employees. You use an app to unlock the door, scan your items and pay with the same app. This makes self check out lines at the grocery store seem silly.
I am sure I'm going to embarrass my daughter, but I admit I have NEVER played Candy Crush before. Are you addicted? If you played in the month of December, you were part of the 98 million active players a day. Their parent company King is planning on going public.
