B.K Net Neutrality Whopper Flopper
The self-proclaimed king of fast food, Burger King has weighed in on Net Neutrality. You read that correctly. A video posted on their social channels imagines the famous Whopper being assembled at different speeds, relative to how much the customer paid. It’s a metaphor, guys! They care about the internet just like us kids! #2clever4us. Not only are they a little bit late, but we’re also not convinced that they actually care. Other than this one video, the brand has done nothing for net neutrality before it was repealed. We know a shallow marketing attempt when we see one.

Facebook Invents A Unit Of Time... No, Really
This may sound like an Onion article, but it’s not. Not content with owning Instagram, Oculus, and WhatsApp, Facebook has invented a unit of time. The ‘flick’ as it’s known, was created to help VR developers keep VR content and videos synced. The nanozuck, as we’re calling it, (you heard it here first!) comes in at 1/705,600,000 of a second. 
That's pretty quick.

2018, According To Digiday
Our friends over at Digiday have put together their list of “5 Things To Expect In 2018” excerpt. The publication talks about things like marketers taking over and trouble in Amazon’s future. Check it out and don’t forget to let them know if something doesn’t come true. 😉

Cell Mates: Apple & Samsung Announce Huge Changes
In the red corner, weighing in at 6.14 ounces we have the iPhone and its new iOS 11.3 software. Hoping to do some damage control in the battery department, the newest version of this software will show the health of your phone’s battery. What’s to stop them permanently showing your battery health as ‘good’ and continuing to slow phones? Well, not much.
And in the blue corner, weighing… well, we don’t know yet. It’s the Samsung Galaxy S9. Samsung has announced that it will reveal the new device on February 25th. According to the rumour mill, this model will have a huge refocus (hehe) on the device’s camera
But will they blend?

Your Phone Has 5% Battery Left, What Do You Say?
Speaking of batteries, today’s “this is kind of sweet and depressing at the same time” news brings you Die With Me, the messaging app that only works if your phone has less than 5% battery. The goal of this app is to put you in doomed, fleeting conversations with strangers who also have less than 5% battery. So, enjoy the moment. But don’t fall in love, kid. It’ll only hurt you.
