Twitter Makes a Big Change, Pimping Your Ride Pt. 2, and More

54W_banner2In this week’s Five for Wednesday, our ongoing series of curated links:

  1. Twitter has taken away a measure of control that’s been central to its service from the start: “popular” and “relevant” tweets (by folks you don’t follow) may show up in your timeline.
  2. We previously told you about the Navdy, a heads-up display that will work with virtually any car. Here are more cool things you can do to make your current ride more futuristic.
  3. Startup company Kateeva claims that usability and durability issues with bendable and foldable screens have been conquered.
  4. The display on Sharp’s new phone for Sprint is very nearly edge-to-edge. That is to say, it’s got virtually no bezel on three sides, or as Daring Fireball‘s John Gruber put it, “it has no forehead, only a chin.”
  5. “(Email) is the cockroach of the internet.” Find out why that’s a good thing.
