When 34-year-old engineer and inventor Dmytro Kostyk founded his Internet of Things (IoT) company Kodisoft in 2003, he knew there was a rough journey ahead. "In Ukraine, you have a top supply chain, but to get something here in the country, you have to move mountains," he says. More than a decade and a half later though, Kodisoft has helped transform the dining experience for customers and restaurateurs alike with its interactive table technology, which is now used by 19 restaurants in cities including Kyiv, Barcelona, London and Dubai. These interactive dining tables can be used for ordering food and drinks, summoning restaurant staff and paying the bill, but also offer entertainment features like music, children's games and the ability to share photos and videos with other guests.

It seems like every service has a subscription these days , and many offer multiple ways to pay. You can go monthly, yearly, or maybe even pay a one-time “lifetime” subscription. But whose “lifetime” is that a reference to, anyway? It’s understandable to assume a “lifetime” subscription means you’ll get access to the service for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. There’s often a lot of fine print with these “lifetime” subscriptions, and you can end up with access for a lot shorter than expected. RELATED: The Best Services to Cancel Unwanted Subscriptions and Negotiate Bills Who Goes First: You or the Service? The big question with a lifetime subscription is: Whose life are we actually talking about here? It may seem obvious once you hear it, but a lifetime subscription isn’t necessarily about how long you live. Essentially, you are paying a one-time fee to be able to use the service—or unlock extra features—for as long as that … [Read more...] about “Lifetime” Subscriptions Don’t Always Last a Lifetime
At the Google Pixel 6 launch event, the company turned some heads when it confirmed the new phone, as well as the Pixel 6 Pro , would be getting five years of updates - that's an Apple iOS-rivaling amount. However there's been some confusion - some people have taken that to mean the phones will get five years of operating system updates, presumably to Android 17, but as per Google's support page , that's not actually the case. The phones will actually have three years of operating system upgrades, to Android 15 if it's called that, with an extra two years of security upgrades to patch any privacy flaws in the phones. Most phone companies continue to service their devices with security patches after they stop getting operating system upgrades. What you need to know about iOS 15 These are the best Android phones Android 12 is rolling out now Confusion is understandable, as people who aren't particularly tech-savvy may have trouble differentiating between … [Read more...] about Google Pixel 6 isn’t getting as many Android updates as some people think
