We discuss the value, or lack there of, of push notifications.
Are push notifications making us more and less productive? Do we need better ways to manage push notifications?
We also discuss political polling and the difference between polling landline and cell phone users.

The politics of this is immaterial to us at the Interchange Project, but the findings are fascinating:
Political pollsters have been under pressure to make sure their samples include Americans who rely solely on cell phones—and the latest NBC News/Marist polls of Florida, Ohio and Virginia exhibit why.
As NBC’s First Read flags, Romney narrowly pulls ahead in Florida among voters who were polled over landlines—48 percent to 45 percent. But among cell phone respondents only, Obama has a major lead: 57 percent to 34 percent.
