Facebook Messenger might get SMS back, multiple accounts soon

Facebook Messenger might get SMS back, multiple accounts soon

Of the myriad instant messaging services out there, Facebook Messenger is perhaps the most common and, therefore, most taken for granted.

Opera Apps Club lets users rent paid Android apps ala Netflix

Although the idea isn't really original or new, Netflix is nowadays credited for having popularized an old/new business model to the point that any new subscription-based content providing service is labeled as "Netflix-like".
