Sadly, bills need to be paid!
Recently, Snapchat announced they will begin placing ads between friends' stories as a way to monetize those views. Companies — including Hollister, P&G, Verizon, and Warner Brothers — are already on board.

Originally, ads would only appear in the media section of the messaging app, as the company is cautious of over-flooding one's feed with commercials.
However, considering the fact that they get around 10 billion video views each day, they saw an opportunity to make some dough!

Call us shocked.
A new report claims that your cellphone carrier could be tracking what you do on your smartphone!
Apparently, companies like AT&T and Verizon are tapping into at least 100 million users' phones to see just what they're up to on the internet.
While this isn't surprising, it is interesting to hear what the major phone carriers have to say about the scandalous invasion of privacy.

Jennifer Lopez was more than red-y to meet her fans on Saturday at a Verizon store in Los Angeles.
The singer was arresting in a red Vivienne Westwood jumpsuit, matching platform sandals and tousled locks.
After what she wore in Vegas last week, it's nice to see J.Lo in something more conservative and panty-friendly.
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see J. Lo and her fans!

Redbox + Verizon = tough competition for Netflix!
Verizon and Redbox are reportedly partnering up to launch their own streaming movie and television service.
Starting next year on May 28th, both companies will offer customers the opportunity to buy credits that they can use to purchase and rent videos online OR at the Redbox kiosks.
The project is "a top priority" for Coinstar, the company behind Redbox, although sources say the service, which aims to reach 85 million households in America, won’t seek to beat rivals in offering the newest releases.
In which case, Netflix might still have a chance.
Given all the crap Netflix has put their customers through over the last couple months, do U think Verizon's new service will steal any of their customers?

Hallelujah! Hey Apple lovers, no more of those pesky early termination fees if you want to switch from Sprint.
The third largest wireless company will now be offering the new iPhone 5 and the current model, iPhone 4, coming this October!
Despite the usual iPhone summer release, Apple has delayed the launch of their new model to October, for unknown reasons, of course.
This will be very exciting for Sprint users though, as the new iPhone 5 will be released the same day to them as Verizon and AT&T users.
The iPhone is basically taking over the world, riiight?

The wait is (almost) over!
Although rumors suggested an April release date, Apple officially announced on Wednesday that the iPad 2 will start shipping in the United States in a little over a week on Friday, March 11.
The second-generation iPad is thinner, lighter, and faster than the original. It comes equipped with a 10 hour battery life, 2 video cameras (rear and front), and a new A5 dual-core processor which offers up to 9 times faster graphics processing.
Starting at $499, the iPad 2 will be available on on both AT&T and Verizon 3G networks!
New accessories include a $39 cable which offers mirrored HDMI video out to HDTVs for 1080p high-definition output and allows users to charge their iPad while using the video out feature.
A magnetic "smart cover" is also available for $39 which uses microfibers to clean the iPad 2 display and magnetically aligns to cover the screen.
Sounds pret-ty sick!
Are U going to get the new iPad?
