Fortnite Mobile: How to download Fortnite for iOS and Android

If you're looking for a fun gaming fix on the go, why not Fortnite for mobile?
The Epic Games Battle Royale shooter has been available on both iOS and Android devices since 2018. It has transferred the popular game to a wide range of pocket-sized smartphones and tablets.
Getting Fortnite on the phone was a breeze. Fortnite Battle Royale's runaway success, with 100 players appearing as the last fighters on an island map, has already been very successful on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Fortunately, Fortnite's cartoon art style can also be easily scaled down to smartphone screens that have never been as competitive as online games - with a goal support option for Fortnite cellphone gamers who mourn the loss of detail at this smaller size.
So Fortnite Mobile is a real thing, and if you're reading this, it's because you want to jump right into the Epic Games mobile game. To that end, we've put together a step-by-step guide to starting your Fortnite mobil…

Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Textbook

Execution is everything

Musical tastes are personal. And it seems that force-feeding people a new album from U2, unsolicited, doesn’t go over well.
Apple giving away U2′s new Songs of Innocence is in itself not a bad thing. But there are two problems.

I've got Amazon.com drones in my future.

I use Amazon's Prime delivery service for everything from rechargable batteries to art books to beef jerky, and so I was quite taken aback when CEO Jeff Bezos showcased a drone delivery system called Prime Air on 60 Minutes this past weekend. The idea is that packages below five pounds could be delivered straight from Amazon distribution centers to customers within 30 minutes using drones.

Since Sunday's show, media coverage of Bezo's plan has overwhelmingly focused on the technical and logistical aspects of Prime Air.

For example, will the FAA be okay with all these drones flying around? Are they safe enough to fly around crowded cities an…
