T-Mobile has more amazing news to share. Apple is selling iMacs for cheaper and Amazon’s press conference video is now live. Twitter is also ready to surprise you!
T-Mobile takes the stage at Seattle, WA, showing us their newest iteration of the Uncarrier movement. The revolutionary carrier is offering test drives now, other wise known as 7-night stand. They are asking you to “cheat on your carrier” and enjoy T-Mobile’s network to see how awesome it is.
T-Mobile has partnered with Apple to offer free test drives to consumers. You can walk into a T-Mobile store and walk out with an iPhone 5s. No down payment is necessary and you will have to pay nothing until the 7th day.
No longer would users have to regret their purchases… at least not with T-Mobile, that is. But that is not all T-Mobile has to announce today. In fact, T-Mobile went nuts and just decided to release Uncarrier 6.0, as well. What is the 6th Uncarrier version all about? Free music streaming!
T-Mobile will no longer count your music streaming MBs towards your data. As long as you stream from one of the supported music streaming apps, you can stream all you want and not one KB will be taken off your data pool. Supported apps include Rhapsody, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, iTunes Radio, Slacker, Samsung Milk and Beatport.
Opinion: This are really quite stunning moves. Most carriers offer a window in which you can simply return your device and cancel your contract, but this is after the customer already paid a hefty amount of money to begin with. And don’t even think about letting you stream music for free!
iMacs can be great tools, with great displays, fair specs and Apple’s popular software. The main issue with them is that they can get a bit pricey. Apple has just announced a brand new iMac priced at just $1099, $200 less than previous low-end iMacs.
The main difference is the lower-powered processor, a 1.4GHz Intel Core i5 chip that allows Apple to cut the price down significantly. It also seems like you can’t upgrade from the 8 GB of RAM that come with the computer.
Opinion: We must say this is quite a deal. This new iMac offers nearly the same power as a Macbook Air, but upgrades you to a much better display. IT would be optimal for those who want a stationary work/study computer.
Amazon has posted the complete Amazon Fire Phone press conference video. You will be able to see the unveiling of the device, as well as all the demos Amazon treated us with. The video is 1 hour and 25 minutes long, so be ready to go through a long presentation.
Opinion: If you don’t feel like going through 1.5 hours of video, you can always check out our coverage, which does include everything you need to know about the Amazon Fire Phone.
Are pigs flying yet? After years of requests from rabid Twitter fans, the social network has decided to give in and add support for animated GIF images. This will work for desktop, as well as both iOS and Android apps. A “play” button will appear over all GIF images, allowing you to choose whether you want to play it or not. Go test it!
Opinion: Like many of you, I am quite excited about this upgrade. Probably much more than I should be, really.
