YouTube Connect tipped to be Google’s answer to Periscope

Live streaming is now a thing. Although Meerkat, which helped catapult that activity, has called it quits, others have been more than happy to take its place. And by others, we mainly mean Twitter's Periscope or Facebook's newer Live Video feature. YouTube, which is easily considered to be the top dog in video streaming, isn't going to be left behind.

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.
