Facebook Anonymous: tip says privacy may be their next goal

No matter how often Facebook suggests they’re all about privacy, there’s one undeniable fact about the social network. You pay. Whether it be by cash (not in Facebook’s case) or with your presence, you pay. That’s how Facebook stays in business. They sell advertisement space to businesses for you to see. They recently released an initiative called Facebook Atlas.

Gmail updates for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus displays

Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference, like apps that take proper advantage of the extra screen real-estate of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, so consider it welcome news that Gmail has updated for iOS 8.
