The Chromebook of smartphones? Nextbit Robin uses the cloud to expand your storage

The Nextbit Robin, currently raising funds on Kickstarter, takes a cloud-based approach to the modern smartphone

In the last few years, storage space has become a bigger concern on many flagship smartphones – especially entry-level 16 GB models. Rather than increasing the phone’s storage, one startup thinks it’s high time we remove the concern altogether by sharing smartphone storage with the cloud.

Man Jailed For 24 years Has Murder Conviction Overturned

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A man who served 24 years in prison for a fatal drive-by shooting in 1991 has been released, officials said.

The 1993 murder conviction of Ruddy Quezada, 53, was overturned Monday after Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson acknowledged his office, under his predecessor, Charles Hynes, withheld key evidence in the case, The New York Times reported.

A search of records produced a December 2004 email showing that prosecutors had issued a material-witness order to detain a witness until he agreed to testify against Quezada.

Quezada was accused of killing Jose Rosado in a drug-related murder in East New York and was arrested after two men told police he had pulled the trigger. He was convicted and sentenced 25 years to life.

Prosecutors still believe Quezada had a role in the shooting, but agreed with the defense that his due-process rights were violated during the process of appealing the conviction.

“We think the process was fine during the trial, but not during post-conviction,” Oren Yaniv, a spokesman for the district attorney, told the Times.

Calico Wallpaper and Joya Join Forces to Release Handmade Scented Candles

Brooklyn’s Calico Wallpaper and Joya have linked up for a special trio release of scented candles. Each entry had undergone an intricate handmade process, from being marbled by hand to then being poured by hand. Joya in turn came up with three distinct scents: L’Absinthe, Outrenoir and Seul du Monde. The initial entry resides in a white and gold cylindrical case; while the Outrenoir rests inside of a black, silver and gold marbled jar; and the Seul du Monde is surrounded by tangerine, silver and black container coloration.

Again, each candle is handmade, so no two are exactly alike. You can purchase today through select shops.

For some other fresh candle releases from Joya, head here.
