Sick of constant media bashing, Verizon funds a tech news site where the NSA and net neutrality don’t exist

Verizon Net Neutrality NSA

It’s hard being Verizon sometimes. The poor little wireless carrier and Internet service provider often gets a bum rap in the tech press for its controversial actions on net neutrality and on enabling the American government’s surveillance programs. To combat these nattering negative ninnies in the media, Verizon has decided to take action and bankroll its own news site where none of those nasty sorts of stories will ever pop up.

Walgreens will happily take the Apple Pay customers that CVS and Rite Aid don’t want

Apple Pay Vs. CVS Rite Aid

Although CVS and Rite Aid both shut off the NFC payment receptors over the weekend, you can still use services such as Apple Pay at Walgreens, which just happens to be one of those two pharmacies’ main competitors. And don’t think that Walgreens doesn’t know this — its official Twitter account on Tuesday sent out a message letting everyone know that all iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users can “use Apple Pay today at any one of our stores.” The company also helpfully posted a link showing you how to find all the Walgreens stores located nearest you, although that link also happened to be for Apple Maps, so you may want to double check with another service before making your drive.

Apple’s Retina 5K iMac seems pricey at $2,499 – here’s why it’s really a killer deal

Apple Retina 5K iMac Price

Obviously not everyone can afford to spend $2,500 on a large monitor with a resolution of 4K or higher. But if you do feel like throwing that kind of cash around at a beautiful display, Apple’s new iMac with a Retina 5K display really is a killer deal. We mention this because 9to5Mac on Wednesday flagged an impressive looking LG 4K monitor that measures in at 31 inches and costs the exact same price as the Retina 5K iMac… but it’s also just a monitor and not an all-in-one desktop computer.

Project Ara Prototype Video

There are few projects in the smartphone industry with as much potential as Google’s modular smartphone, Project Ara. Just last week, Google announced a dedicated store for the phone where developers will be able to sell their modules directly to consumers without having to go through any third-party retailers. It’ll be at least a few months before you can start hot-swapping the modules yourself, but the folks at Phonebloks got a chance to check out the latest prototype at NK Labs, and there’s video evidence to prove it.
