There not many ways for Smartphone owners to make money just from using their phone, in fact, it’s normally the other way around. However, here is an app that promises the user that they will be able to earn cash and gift cards just by downloading apps and playing games. Apparently, all you have to do is download the app to an Android powered device and sign up to the service. The user is able to earn point by simply downloading and playing free games, watching videos and completing surveys. There are also rewards for referring your family and friends.
Each Pocket Points reward is different it depends on what is required, but there are additional points to be earned such as; 250 for each referral, 250 bonus when it reaches 1000 and 200 points when a referral redeems their points in a free prize or gift card, a 1000 points is equal to $1. Once the user has built up enough points they can then redeemed from Amazon as a gift card or code, from Google Play as a gift code or gift and from PayPal as cash, so there is something for everyone there. It sounds cool, but is it; we will need to take a closer look at Pocket Points.
The Pocket Points app is free and available now for Android powered devices from Google Play.

Normally we think of seasonal workers as people who could use a temporary job for the build up to the festive season, but while Amazon employs many seasonal workers across its vast distribution network, it also has over fifteen thousand Kiva Robots plus Robo Stow robotic arms and other robots too. To see them in action check out the video below. You will soon realise that it is quite interesting to see them at work going about their daily routines without complaining about pay or working conditions. It also makes us feel grateful that these machines do not have independent thought yet; otherwise, we will all be risk when Judgement Day begins.
According to Dave Clark, who is Amazon’s senior vice president of worldwide operations and customer service, he says;
The Amazon fulfilment teams are dedicated to innovating in our fulfilment centres to increase speed of delivery while enabling greater local selection at lower costs for our customers. The advancements in our latest fulfilment centres hit all three of these customer desires while continuing to provide a work environment that is great for employees.
The robot invasion into the workplace continues, is there no stopping this mechanical takeover? It might be in the workplace at the moment, but isn’t that where all revolutions begin and it gives a whole new meaning to the Android operating system too.

Want a free smartphone? Then the Amazon Fire Phone might be right up your street, although you will have to sign up for a £32 per month contract with O2 in order to qualify, which is more or less the same as every other smartphone on the market is picked up. Therefore, this is Amazon’s first attempt at attacking the smartphone market and it is going to hit the stores in the UK later on this month. It has already been launched in the US but despite its name, this smartphone has failed to blaze a trail into the already busy and competitive smartphone market. This phone has one advantage over other smartphones though and that is Amazon users, for these guys this phone might be what they are looking for, as they will find that Amazon Prime is bundled in the phone along with unlimited photo storage and the May Day customer support feature.

It is powered by a 2.2 GHz Quad core Snapdragon 800 processor and an Adreno 330 graphics card. There is 2 GB of RAM and a choice of either 32 GB or 64 GB storage, the smartphone will be running on the Fire operating system version 3.6 It comes with a 13 MP rear facing camera and a 2.1 MP front facing camera. Finally, it measures up at 139.2 mm (L) x 66.5 mm (W) x 8.9 mm (H) and it weighs in at just 160 grams. The price of the Amazon Fire Phone has been reduced right down to free on some networks such as O2 according to the plan chosen; it is an interesting development from Amazon but has it come to the market too late?
