LG has unveiled the new G Flex 2 at CES 2015. This curiously curved smartphone with its bending properties is already known for its design. (LG is calling it the company’s bendiest phone, yet.)
But, the company claims the phone’s main selling point is its durability. Specifically, LG is insisting its new device, in addition to its other improved features, has a tougher skin and tougher display than previous models.
Like it’s predecessor, the G Flex 2, has a scratch resistant, “self-healing” back.

Mix360 is the latest in noise cancelling headphones from ONvocal. Unveiled at CES 2015, these headphones are looking to take noise canceling technology to the next level. By combining sleek tech with a mixing app, users can control the levels of sounds they hear.
On their own, the Mix360 Bluetooth headphones are only capable of basic noise cancellation. But when combined with the app, they give the user more control over what they are hearing. The app breaks sound down into three categories:
the device you are listening to,

|In August, al Nusra Front jihadists took control of Syria’s side of the border crossing with Israel and kidnapped over 40 United Nations peacekeepers — who have since been released. But al Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-affiliate, isn’t Israel’s only threat from Syria. President Bashar al-Assad’s military, in a possible effort to bait Israel into its civil war to shore up Arab sympathies, has been lobbing mortars across the border. Just a few weeks ago, the Israeli military shot down a Syrian plane flying over the Golan Heights — the first time it has done so since the 1980s. In this extra scene, VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky encounters a group of bird-watchers at Mount Hermon — Israel’s highest point, overlooking the border between Lebanon and Syria. The highly-secured military location houses a nature preserve that’s a major destination for bird-watchers from around the world, seemingly unfazed by the conflict occurring nearby.

Do you know what causes an individual prospect to convert and buy your product? If you’re like most marketers, you’ll look at the last thing they touched — maybe a landing page, buying guide, case study, or comparison chart. Then, you’ll begin promoting that piece, thinking it’s your golden opportunity to gain more customers.
Unfortunately, if you follow this approach, you’ll miss out on the fact that a purchasing decision is a long, drawn-out process for most customers. There are many factors — many “touches” — that go into a buying decision.
