Today’s selection of articles includes:

  1. How I made — instead of spent — 26 cents with a mobile app“, by Nick Wingfield (NY Times). Spare5 brings the world of nanoentrepreneurship to your mobile device. But at $1.30 an hour, don’t quit your day job.
  2. Four reasons for Tesla’s record-setting decline“, by Erik Holm (Wall Street Journal). The title is over-hyped. Analysts soft-pedal the long-term effect of lower oil prices, pointing instead to BMW and general market sentiment against momentum stocks.
  3. Siblings build a butcher shop for ‘meat’-loving vegans” (NPR). Kale and Aubry Walch and the Herbivorous Butcher.
  4. Playoff field is right, despite noise“, by Ivan Maisel (ESPN). (#1) Alabama v Ohio State (#4); (#2) Oregon v Florida State (#3). Perhaps if (#5) Baylor v TCU (#6) had been played (a Big-12 title game? Inconceivable!), things would have been different. Maisel convincingly argues for keeping future College Football Playoffs to four teams.
