That’s A Wrap On The Atlanta And Boston TC Meetups! — This week, TechCrunch had its world rocked by two very special cities on the East Coast. First we hit up Atlanta, where we felt true Southern Hospitality as ten startups pitched a packed audience at Prive night club. After a fierce debate, our expert panel of judges crowned Carlingo the winner, but not before we caught up with Yik Yak on stage.

Withings Launches Android Support For Activité And Activité Pop — Withings has just broadened the reach of its smart watches, the Activité and the Activité Pop, as the Android version of the Withings HealthMate app now integrates with the new hardware. Withings launched the Activité line last year with a hope to bring a new look to the smart watch space.

Tinder Plus Will Launch On Monday — Tinder Plus, the dating app's first step into the wonderful world of freemium monetization, will launch on Monday for $9.99, according to sources familiar with the matter. Tinder Plus includes at least one highly requested feature and a few others that are meant to add broader functionality to the service, which essentially boils down the usual online dating experience into a simple location-based 'hot or not'.

A Brief History Of Yik Yak — Yik Yak, launched back in fall of 2013, isn't even two years old. And still, the anonymous, location-based messaging app is available on almost any campus in the United States and has raised more than $73 million to date. But how did they go from two college guys in Georgia to being the tech sweetheart of the South?

With A $60M Revenue Run Rate, ClassPass May Be The Next Uber — TechCrunch has secured financial information about ClassPass, the TechStars-backed startup that offers unlimited access to various fitness classes for a flat monthly fee. As it stands now, our sources report that ClassPass is tracking to a $60 million revenue run rate for 2015, a run rate that has doubled in the past three months.

This Week On The TC Gadgets Podcast: Apple Watch, Pebble Time, Moto E, And Galaxy S6 Leaks! — It's been a busy week. Apple sent out invitations to its Apple Watch event on March 9, and Pebble released its next-gen watch on Kickstarter and raised more than $6 million in half a day. Meanwhile, Motorola released the Moto E smartphone, and photos of the Samsung Galaxy S6 reportedly leaked this week.

Overdressed | TechCrunch — If you were offline between, say, 7pm and 10pm Eastern last night, boy, things must have seemed real weird when you logged back onto Twitter. Despite what you might have heard, BuzzFeed did not invent the optical illusion. " The Dress," as it immediately became known, is but one in a long line of images that trick the eye and the brain.

Meetup + Pitch-Off: Boston 2015 — TechCrunch's legendary meetup + pitch-off event is coming to Boston! Join us for beer, good conversation, and a battle to the death to see which entrepreneurs can dazzle and excite the judges in under sixty seconds. Pitch-Off Competition Participants interested in competing in the pitch-off will have 60 seconds to explain why their startup is awesome.

Boston Meetup. Tonight. Be There. — Dear Boston, TechCrunch has arrived. And even through all the snow, I can honestly say that you folks are looking wicked smaht this year. The Meetup + Pitch-off is going down tonight at Estate at 6pm, and we literally can not wait to see you.
