Facebook Instant Articles 101: The Basics

Today Facebook is pushing their newest service, Instant Articles, bringing full News Articles to the public through Facebook alone. With this service, publishers like National Geographic will be bringing full-on articles and videos to Facebook without any buffer. The companies that work with Facebook this way will receive ad revenue, and Google will - essentially - be cut out entirely. Unless you're looking at the article on an Android phone, of course. You'll be leaving all your news requirements to Facebook and the publishers they deem to be worthy.

Your iPhone 6s may be Rose Gold, cost $10k

Your iPhone 6s may be Rose Gold, cost $10k

Analysts predict that the next iPhone will include a Rose Gold option as well as a higher-priced luxury option similar to Apple Watch Edition. This week's suggestion includes a version of the Apple iPhone 6s - following Apple's traditional every-other-year change from a full edition change to an "s" version. This iPhone 6s would include Rose Gold - though we're not entirely sure at this time whether or not this gold would be an actual gold mix, like the Apple Watch Edition, or if it'll be similar to the Gold option on the iPhone 6 now, without any actual super-expensive gold inside.

AT&T extends rollover data to a couple prepaid plans

We've seen carriers tweaking their data plans a lot lately, and not just the lesser-known prepaid carriers. This time around is AT&T, which had recently made some changes to how it throttled certain plans, and now the wireless carrier is extending rollover data to a couple tiers of its prepaid GoPhone subscription service. As expected, this means that high-speed data that wasn’t used in one month will roll over into the next month, assuming the plan is renewed without lapsing.

The entire announcement was shrouded in an air of secrecy, in that none of the games that are going to be removed have actually been named…meaning we don’t yet know what is on the chopping block. What we do know is that they’re mobile games, and they’ll be stripped from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

The Roku app can do more than just toggle to the next Netflix episode, and with its latest update (for both iOS and Android) it can do even more. With the update comes Roku Feed and voice search, both of which were previously announced last month and are also now available on the current generation Rokus, including Roku TVs. Those on Windows Phone, as I’m sure they expect, will have to continue waiting for these features, as they’ll be coming on “a later date”.

Android Marshmallow and the new Nexus: Reality Check

Today Android M was listed by Google in their collection of events for Google I/O. This is Google's yearly developers conference, one where it's common for Google to reveal a new flavor of Android - or at least major updates for flavors of Android. At this year's Google I/O 2015, Google's first mention of Android M has appeared. This will most likely end up being called Android Marshmallow.
