Verizon will now sell you unlimited data in 30-minute blocks

Verizon will now sell you unlimited data in 30-minute blocks

Most US mobile carriers either moved away from, or stopped offering unlimited data plans long ago, instead pushing their customers towards tiered monthly plans. Verizon is one such that has completely eliminated the option, even going as far taking it away from certain users on grandfathered plans. But now they've taken a small step in the opposite direction, rolling out a new pay-as-you-go unlimited data option.

Yahoo’s email breach might spell disaster for Verizon deal

Yahoo’s email breach might spell disaster for Verizon deal

It would appear that the recent Yahoo email breach has not only tarnished its reputation with users, but also with the suitor it has found in Verizon. Rumors of Verizon's attempt to reduce its $4.8 billion bid have been circulating recently, and now we're getting some sort of confirmation that those whispers were correct. In fact, Verizon may be looking to back out of the deal entirely.

Verizon Google Pixel Android updates promised without delay

Verizon Google Pixel Android updates promised without delay

Verizon has made it clear that they will not be going through the same process with Google Android updates that they had with past Nexus models. This means you, Galaxy Nexus. While in the past, a device with a carrier, (even a Nexus device), would get OS updates from Google later than their off-carrier counterparts. This was because of system-level apps from the carrier and an extra layer of consideration on the part of the carrier. Now that wont be a problem any longer.

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Today we're having a very brief and simple look at the various ways in which a person might purchase and utilize a Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL smartphone. There aren't a whole lot of options, at first glance - Verizon even seems to be pushing the idea that they will be the sole carrier option for the smartphone, the only place a person will be able to buy from! But they're not. And it's not. Google has made this decision very simple for people that check news and review sources like SlashGear before they buy.

Verizon looks to cut Yahoo purchase price by $1 billion

Verizon looks to cut Yahoo purchase price by $1 billion

In case you missed it, Yahoo has found itself in a bit of a tough place recently. First came the announcement of an attack that compromised the credentials of 500 million accounts, followed by the more recent reports that the company spied on its users on behalf of the US government. In the face of this bad news, it would appear that Verizon is reconsidering its $4.8 billion deal to buy out Yahoo.

Verizon to handle its Pixel updates, security fixes from Google

Verizon to handle its Pixel updates, security fixes from Google

Some of the fine print about the Google Pixel have started to trickle down to the public, and not all of them are encouraging. Despite controlling almost all aspects of the smartphone, Google is apparently not yet ready to take over completely. According to a report, Google has still given Verizon full control over feature updates for the Google Pixel smartphones purchased from the carrier, reserving only security updates under Google’s direct control. This practically means that, as far as updates and fragmentation go, Google is simply preserving the status quo.

ASUS ZenPad Z10 with LTE launches as Verizon exclusive

Verizon has announced the launch of the ASUS ZenPad Z10, a tablet exclusively available through the carrier.

The ZenPad Z10 won’t be available to buy in physical Verizon stores until October 13, but you can order one now from the carrier’s website if you’re so inclined.

Verizon Pixel phone keeps bloat apps at minimum (and totally removable)

Verizon Pixel phone keeps bloat apps at minimum (and totally removable)

You can order Google’s Pixel smartphone from Verizon, and if you do, you’ll find a relatively modest set of 'bloatware' apps on it, namely three Verizon apps as well as a handful of other pre-installed offerings. If this isn’t to your liking, don’t worry: Verizon says you can remove the apps if you don't want them, meaning they present only a minimum hassle to those who care about their inclusion.

If Yahoo won’t take security seriously, then it deserves to die

If Yahoo won’t take security seriously, then it deserves to die

Yahoo has been in the news quite a bit recently, and aside from the announcement of its sale to Verizon, that news has mostly been negative. That's because Yahoo recently revealed that it was the victim of a major security breach. Again. This time around, whoever beat Yahoo's security made off with the login credentials and personal details associated with 500 million accounts.

Verizon and Microsoft also named as potential Twitter buyers

Verizon and Microsoft also named as potential Twitter buyers

Earlier today, CNBC reported that Google and Salesforce had both expressed an interest in possibly making a formal offer to buy Twitter. While that doesn't necessarily mean those offers are coming, it sounds like they'll have more competition aside from one another if money talks begin. That's because Verizon and Microsoft have also been named as companies that are interested in purchasing Twitter.

Galaxy Note 7 is back on Verizon, T-Mobile following soon

While we expect a bit more reports, maybe even more lawsuits, in the coming days, Samsung seems to be quite confident it has weathered the storm, enough to actually restart sales of the Galaxy Note 7 in the US. Or at least that seems to be the implication now that Verizon has put the controversial phablet back on stock on its website. And according to a third-party report, T-Mobile would be doing the same really soon as well, just in time for the promised September 21 date.

Moto Z Play Droid, Hasselblad Moto Mod now up for pre-order

After two consecutive high-profile smartphone announcements, it might be too easy to forget that Motorola and Verizon had a less expensive but no less curious bombshell just last week. To remind everyone that the Moto Z Play Droid and the Hasselblad “True Zoom” Moto Mod are in town, the two companies have opened the doors for interested buyers to pre-order the devices. And with that, of course, we are able to get a closer look into the specs of the smartphone and the half-camera.
