How to stream the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2016 live

This upcoming Thanksgiving will usher in the 90th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a notable anniversary for the long-running event, and so it's not surprising that many people are interested in watching. In the past, watching the parade live (televised, that is) without cable or satellite was tricky. Thankfully, life has gotten a lot easier for cable-cutters and others without cable, and you'll have a new -- and rare -- option for livestreaming the parade this year.

Verizon adds 5GB / 10GB prepaid plans: here are four alternatives

Verizon Wireless has added two new data-heavy plans for its prepaid customers, one with 5GB of 4G LTE data and the other with 10GB.

Here are some other prepaid plans with similar data options.

T-Mobile offers unlocked Pixel credit, one ups Verizon

T-Mobile has decided to one up Verizon: bring an unlocked Pixel handset to the Uncarrier, and you’ll get a $325 credit automatically. This is in comparison to Verizon, which is offering up to a $300 credit to those who get the Pixel. The catch here is that you have to sign up for T-Mobile ONE, the carrier's 'unlimited everything' plan, which may not be a big deal for most converts. Speaking about this, CEO John Legere said, “I’m a huge fan of what Google has done with the Pixel…"

Verizon used drones to inspect cell sites hit by hurricane

Verizon is one of the latest companies to use drones for site inspects, the carrier has announced. Only hours after Hurricane Matthew’s exit, Verizon deployed drones to inspect sites for possible damage, doing so despite severe regional flooding. Without the drones, these cell site inspections may have taken days rather than hours due to the severity of the flooding, and potential cell service outages may have lasted longer.

LG V20 is coming to major US carriers, question is when

The iPhone 7 and friends may have grabbed the spotlight from the LG V20 too soon, but those who remain unfazed by Apple’s products remain more interested in this new, premium Android smartphone. Good thing, then, that major carriers in the US have enough room for both. Of course, it’s no surprise that AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are all chiming in on how they will be carrying LG’s latest and greatest. It’s really more a question of when, and which carrier features the smartphone will support.

Verizon closing in on $5 billion Yahoo purchase

Verizon may soon be vastly increasing its content and advertising business, as it's said to be in one-on-one talks to purchase Yahoo.

Indeed, what was once a number of bidders now seems to have been whittled down to just Verizon, which is now apparently trying to hammer out a deal.

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

No matter how strong your 4G LTE connection is, there will come a time, or a place, where the signal degrades to near uselessness. Sometimes, those times and places are found inside our very own homes, where structures and materials hinder the spread of cellular signals throughout the building. Making sure its customers won't be bereft of that much needed Internet connection, Verizon has teamed up again with Samsung to launch a 4G LTE Network Extender that practically gives homes and offices a mini LTE tower of their own.
