We visited Pinterest's offices today in San Francisco to learn more about their goals, approach and innovation (stay tuned for a more comprehensive story on this original internet and mobile player). Part of the visit was a tour of their office and facilities. Housed in a restored warehouse, Pinterest's open-type offices are replete with interesting installations, employee-made art and various spots that make working and kicking back a lot more fun than a traditional office.
i've always been fascinated by the offices of highly creative technology companies. Aside from the perks they give their employees, it's interesting to see how the culture and character of a company is revealed by its interiors, common areas and quirky installations. Pinterest's office looks like an awesome place to work.

Motorola has been making bespoke apps for its smartphones for some time now. Some are whimsical like the Spotlight Stories but others like Migrate and Assist are extremely useful. Starting with the new Moto G (LTE) and Moto E smartphones, Motorola is enabling a new Alert app that can notify contacts or emergency services of your emergency and your location. Think of it as a smart panic button. It's a smart application that we all wish we never had to use but can be thankful we have it when the unexpected happens.
