It tracks your movements on the slopes, lets you share activity on social media, and even compete against friends. Like with most things involving tech, however, EpicMix has changed over the years. The version you used last year is about as similar to the original as your new iPhone is to the original.

      You'll never have to search for a parking spot again

      It's an annoyance we've all experienced, and Parkifi is trying to solve it. But it's not just because the startup cares about your mental health. Circling for parking adds to congestion, bad air quality and traffic accidents. And while parking spaces are the biggest use of land in any city, they're terribly managed, according to Donald Shoup, urban planning professor at UCLA.
