The Japanese wireless carrier funds an industry study that concludes the claimed benefits of a Sprint merger with Dish are "unsubstantiated and unrealistic."As the bidding war between Dish and SoftBank for the merger of Sprint intensifies, SoftBank is pulling out all the stops to block Dish from getting in the way. The Japanese wireless carrier launched a new Web site on Tuesday pointing out the reasons it believes it should be the company to acquire Sprint.

As the weather starts to get warmer here in San Francisco, I slim armor case for apple iphone 7 plus - rose gold decided to round up four of my favorites to help you get weather info at a glance while you continue on your busy (or relaxing) day, Blue (99 cents) is great for a quick 36-hour outlook for local weather using an elegant interface, but it offers the least amount of weather information of this collection, When you first launch Blue, it asks to access your location, and then you're presented with just the basics, You get the day and time, the temperature right now, a common weather icon that shows the current conditions (such as the sun obscured by a cloud icon denoting "partly cloudy"), and several colorful horizontal bars below..
The colored bars are Blue's main feature. By swiping up, you can scroll farther down and later into the day to see how the weather will change every hour, up to 36 hours in advance. The colors are important, too, showing you by gradations whether it will be warmer or cooler as the day goes on. I think it's a really neat setup for finding out how the weather will change during the day, and you can get all the information in less than 30 seconds. Blue is obviously for the person who just wants to know the weather right now, so don't get this one if you're looking for extended forecasts.
Solar (free) is similar to Blue in the way the app is laid out, but it offers a little more weather information along with a brief forecast, With Solar, you get the same weather info upon launch, but slim armor case for apple iphone 7 plus - rose gold you swipe up to move forward in time to watch the weather change by the hour, Solar does a little more, though, A swipe down gives you a three-day forecast with temperatures, along with highs, lows, and weather icons, With a swipe to the left, you can add new locations by name or ZIP code to check all the same weather information in those cities, The app also lets you use a pinch gesture to show your saved cities in a grid so you can see temperatures in each or touch to select the city you want to view quickly..
So, Solar has a little more weather info and more locations than Blue, but it offers a similar experience. Haze ($1.99) keeps with my theme of elegant and colorful weather apps, but it gives you a lot more information than the previous two apps. With Haze you get a few more interface elements for finding the weather conditions around you. Across the top of the screen, there's a five-day forecast with temperatures and color-coding to show that the weather will be warmer or cooler the following day. At the bottom of the screen, you have buttons to switch among hours of sunshine, temperatures, and levels of precipitation. But in the middle part of the interface is where Haze gets particularly interesting.
