As you know, I was stuck in quite a precarious situation at the end of 2014 and into 2015. I spent weeks on end in hospitals preparing for a (successful!) stem cell transplant. One of the transformative moments for me whilst in the hospital was that computers, mobile phones, platform games, and other things just didn't keep me occupied in a meaningful way.
the great thing about gmail is that your emails are stored forever (hopefully). i stumbled across a thread that in retrospect was incredible. it also shows how lucky i am to have the family support that i have. i'll set it up for you. i was living in sf.
Last year, for four weeks at a time, I sat in the hospital. My now wife April visited me every extra second she had, and without that I would have literally fallen apart. She wasn't the only one that visited me.
If you haven't tried Peach out because you don't have an iOS device, a developer has ginned up something called "Nectarine," which is an unofficial Android and web version of the service. It's limited as far as what you can do and how you can interact, but you can definitely view your stream (in flipped order), like posts and comment on posts.
Amidst concerns over the gaming mechanics of a popular buzzy app, Stolen has decided to shut down. They tweeted out the news today. Basically, the app allowed you to "own" peers with Twitter accounts, whether they signed up for the service or not.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
