Verizon and Microsoft also named as potential Twitter buyers

Earlier today, CNBC reported that Google and Salesforce had both expressed an interest in possibly making a formal offer to buy Twitter. While that doesn't necessarily mean those offers are coming, it sounds like they'll have more competition aside from one another if money talks begin. That's because Verizon and Microsoft have also been named as companies that are interested in purchasing Twitter.

Galaxy Note 7 is back on Verizon, T-Mobile following soon

Galaxy Note 7 is back on Verizon, T-Mobile following soon

While we expect a bit more reports, maybe even more lawsuits, in the coming days, Samsung seems to be quite confident it has weathered the storm, enough to actually restart sales of the Galaxy Note 7 in the US. Or at least that seems to be the implication now that Verizon has put the controversial phablet back on stock on its website. And according to a third-party report, T-Mobile would be doing the same really soon as well, just in time for the promised September 21 date.

Moto Z Play Droid, Hasselblad Moto Mod now up for pre-order

After two consecutive high-profile smartphone announcements, it might be too easy to forget that Motorola and Verizon had a less expensive but no less curious bombshell just last week. To remind everyone that the Moto Z Play Droid and the Hasselblad “True Zoom” Moto Mod are in town, the two companies have opened the doors for interested buyers to pre-order the devices. And with that, of course, we are able to get a closer look into the specs of the smartphone and the half-camera.

iPhone 7 preorder and carrier pricing round-up

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus won't be available for pre-order until tomorrow, but in the meantime, we have some pricing details from the big four carriers in the US. While some carriers are being a little tight-lipped on their pricing until the phone actually goes up for pre-order, Apple has published information for all four of them, letting us know how much each one will charge for both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, along with all of their storage variants.

LG V20 is coming to major US carriers, question is when

LG V20 is coming to major US carriers, question is when

The iPhone 7 and friends may have grabbed the spotlight from the LG V20 too soon, but those who remain unfazed by Apple’s products remain more interested in this new, premium Android smartphone. Good thing, then, that major carriers in the US have enough room for both. Of course, it’s no surprise that AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are all chiming in on how they will be carrying LG’s latest and greatest. It’s really more a question of when, and which carrier features the smartphone will support.

T-Mobile isn't the only carrier with announcements to make today, as Verizon has rolled out increased LTE speeds across the United States.

Apple and Google team up with FCC to fight robocalls

Apple and Google team up with FCC to fight robocalls

Remember back in July when we told you that the FCC had called on carriers and device makers to help in the fight against robocalls? You'd be forgiven if you thought nothing would come of the FCC's urging, but the very next day, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said he was ready to lead a "strike force" to help the FCC put an end to the robocall problem. It turns out that strike force is real and it had meeting with the FCC today, kicking off its efforts to make robocalls a thing of the past.

“Colorful” HTC Desire 530 now also on Verizon

There really is no stopping HTC from pushing its "micro splash design" to the masses. After finally making available the HTC Desire 530, both unlocked and from T-Mobile, it's Verizon's turn to offer the entry level smartphone to its customers. At a very low price, even lower if you activate a new line on Verizon, you can get this handy Android smartphone that will make people take a second look. And probably not always in a good way.

Average US internet speeds make significant rise in first half of 2016

With the rise of fiber internet and the amount of recognition companies like Google Fiber are getting, you'd be forgiven for feeling a little disappointed in your broadband connection. However, a new report from Ookla is showing us that the wider availability of fiber options may just be a good thing for those with fixed broadband connections, as average broadband speeds have taken a rather large jump year-over-year in the first half of 2016.

Galaxy Note 7 release date, pricing, and carrier pre-order details

Today the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been revealed and priced and released, all at once. While the device won't be immediately available, each of the top carriers in the United States have begun issuing information about when and where the device will be able to be placed in users' hands, physically. The release today marks the first time Samsung has released the headliner "phablet" smartphone Galaxy Note without a "flat" version - it's decidedly part of the "Edge" collection without the namesake.

Verizon confirms Yahoo acquisition to the tune of $4.8 billion

Verizon confirms Yahoo acquisition to the tune of $4.8 billion

What was once a rumor is now confirmed, with Verizon announcing today that it will acquire Yahoo's core internet business for $4.83 billion. We heard the two companies were closing in on deal last week, as Verizon was said to be in one-to-one talks with the internet company. Not only does this acquisition put Verizon in a position where it can compete with Google and Facebook on the mobile advertising side of things, but after last year's purchase of AOL, it also makes Verizon quite the presence in the online media world.

Verizon closing in on $5 billion Yahoo purchase

Verizon closing in on $5 billion Yahoo purchase

Verizon may soon be vastly increasing its content and advertising business, as it's said to be in one-on-one talks to purchase Yahoo. Sources close to the deal say that Verizon could pay around $5 billion to purchase Yahoo's core business, which would essentially disqualify other interested buyers. Indeed, what was once a number of bidders now seems to have been whittled down to just Verizon, which is now apparently trying to hammer out a deal.
