360-video is likely to be all the rage by next year thanks to VR headets. Speaking of VR headsets, Facebook owns Oculus VR so they definitely have an interest in this space.

During Facebook’s F8 Conference, Facebook announced that 360-degree videos are coming to Oculus, but they are also coming to your News Feed. They are calling them spherical videos and they are shot by 24 different cameras. You can not only view these videos from different angles, but you can also walk inside them. CEO Mark Zuckerberg also demonstrated one such video of Facebook’s headquarters.

[Deal] T-Mobile will give you one year of Netflix for Free with the purchase of the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge

Galaxy_S6_Netflix

Well here’s an interesting deal for you. T-Mobile will give you one full year of Netflix for Free with the purchase of the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 Edge. That totals $107.88 in savings, assuming you’re not already grandfathered with the old $7.99 per month rate.

T-Mobile hasn’t specified if existing Netflix accounts will be eligible, but we assume so since a lot of people are already signed up with Netflix. It’s likely they will provide you some sort of code that you can redeem just like what Google did when they launched the Chromecast. Again, this is speculation since no details were announced.

T-Mobile_music_freedom_98

T-Mobile’s Music Freedom service might just be their most underrated Un-Carrier offer. It allows you to stream from participating music apps without penalizing your data. I can’t tell you how valuable that is if you drive around a lot.

They already have a slew of popular apps that are part of the service, but they keep adding more. They might be less obscure, but the bottom line is that T-Mobile is giving everyone an option. They have just added Tidal Music, BandCamp and MixCloud bringing the total to 31 streaming apps.

Hit the break for the complete list and don’t forget to enjoy some new music today.

Moto_G_2014_2nd_Gen_Back_Slanted_Camera_Lens_Motorola_Logo_TA

Moto X just loves providing the simple but very useful stuff don’t they? And there is nothing wrong with that because we love it. The QuickCapture double twist gesture is just one example as you can start the Camera app with a simple double twist of your wrist.

Now Motorola is adding another action (in the Android 5.1 update) that will allow you to quickly open the flashlight by moving your phone twice in a chopping motion. Google had already added a quick way to open the flashlight through the Quick Settings, but this is just one extra way to do it. It should work even when the phone’s display is turned off, making this even quicker.
