Valve creates the perfect demo for Steam VR and the HTC Vive

According to sources, Google has been hard at work on an app aptly named YouTube Connect, which could help spread the service beyond its conventional video, and even music, streaming activities.

Google agrees to T-Mobile’s “Binge On” terms because they’re “opt-out”

T-Mobile's "Binge On" service allows more video apps to stream media to devices without using up the customer's data allotment. While for the end customer this may seem like a really great deal, (who doesn't like so-called free data?), it continues to hold the door open for internet services to charge different amounts of money for different internet services.
