  1. Getting fit, donating to charity, being more punctual: are these among your New Year’s resolutions? If you’re having trouble sticking to becoming a new you, check out these apps that can get you back on track.
  2. We’re not sure when Tesla resolved to start manufacturing their solar roof tiles, but production is under way in their Buffalo, NY factory. (They’re still taking orders, BTW.)
  3. Facebook is rumored to be working on an Amazon Echo Show rival, to be called Portal. (If you remember Facebook’s previous foray into hardware — the HTC One, or “Facebook Phone” — you’ll likely wish them better luck with Portal.)
  4. AT&T’s smart cities initiative wants to keep an eye on the health of America’s infrastructure, monitoring the condition and integrity of roads and bridges.
  5. Tech company Dell is making jewelry — not smart jewelry, but just jewelry. Why would they do this? The answer lies in the amount of gold that can be recycled from computer motherboards and other disposable tech products.
