Arianna Huffington has a solution to your annoying phone notification problem

TwitterFacebook

Uber board member, media mogul, and sleep crusader Arianna Huffington wants you to turn off your phone.

It’s called Thrive, and the goal, according to Huffington, is to provide “the tools to take a break from your phone to do whatever it is that makes you more human.” The Samsung-exclusive app isn’t out until December, but Huffington took the stage at Samsung’s Developer Conference to share more about how it works.  Read more…

There’s a mockumentary about that baseball episode of ‘The Simpsons’

TwitterFacebook

The Simpsons has its fair share of classic episodes, and surely “Homer At The Bat” would be up there with the most memorable.

The hour-long special set to air on Sunday is produced by Fox Sports and Major League Baseball, featuring Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me fame as the director, according to EW.

It’ll be a satirical take on Ken Burns’ 1994 miniseries Baseball, with the mockumentary featuring sportscasters like Joe Buck, as well as the players who appear in the episode such as Wade Boggs, Steve Sox and Jose Canseco. Read more…
