It also found that despite the bad press that collecting user information has gotten, most adults are fine with apps collecting mobile usage statistics, and would prefer that to having to pay for downloads or premium features.

2016 is now behind us, but the events the past year continue to reverberate as we push into 2017. New presidents, dead musicians and the first plus-size model on the cover of Swimsuit Illustrated. Because that's how life works; sometimes it's a step forward, sometimes it's two steps backward. I'll let you decide on the presidents and the musicians, but a plus-size model on the cover of a popular magazine is definitely a step forward. It may seem superficial, but this is a beacon to the millions of women who wear sizes 14 and up. It means recognition that not all women are "angels." There are curvy vixens and voluptuous divas who wear fashionable clothes in bigger proportions. The plus-size clothing niche has been swimming in the back of my mind for quite some time now. As someone who shops in the plus-size section myself, you could say this niche is really c...
