A Classic Mobile Phone Is Set To Return and More In Five for Wednesday

candy bar phone

  1. It might seem sort of silly and an odd exercise in nostalgia, but the most iconic of candybar phones — the Nokia 3310 — is rumored to be making a comeback. If you think about it, though, there’s definitely a market for it: those who need little more than an emergency phone, those who are tired of phones with easily cracked screens, those who miss playing Snake will probably all line up.
  2. Facebook is coming to your TV. For you, it’s an opportunity to watch more funny cat videos. For them, it’s another place to advertise to you.
  3. Facebook is also changing the default behavior of videos in your timeline. They will now default to the sound being ON. You’ll definitely want to change this setting; here’s how.
  4. Amazon is rolling out a new conference call service called Chime. It sounds pretty cool: the service calls meeting invitees, so there’s no more entering conference codes. There’s a LOT of room for improvement in conferencing apps, so we wish them luck.
  5. We don’t ask much of you, dear reader. But we’re going to ask you to please use a password manager. Please. It’s not hard, and here’s how.
