Did anyone ask for that? It seems so, as Vodafone's "simplified" its contract plans, and by "simplified", it really means they've dumped most of their unlimited plans and taken up call and text charges that are higher than their competitors. I'm not exactly sure how that's meant to entice customers. Fresh off the revelation that it's not exactly rushing into 4G deployment, Vodafone's made some significant changes to its contract plans, dropping most (but not all) of its Infinite plans in favour of pricing that starts with (for most plans) 98c/minute call costs with a 40c flagfall and 30c text messages. Given Vodafone's flaky call reception history, I'm struggling to see how these new plans are meant to be attractive. If you want the full rundown on what each of the plans will cost you, Gus at Lifehacker's run up a Planhacker spreadsheet that covers the changes. [Lifehacker]

For a moment, Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before members of the European Parliament looked like it was going to be a very bad day for the Facebook CEO. Then he started answering questions, a flood of pablum spewed from his mouth, and everyone got angry.
The OnePlus 6 might be the most boring phone the company has ever made. Don't get me wrong, that's not meant as an insult, but more as a reflection on how far the company has come since the original OnePlus One. Because even though OnePlus' latest device might not carry with it the same excitement as some of the company's previous phones, as a total package, the OP6 is arguably even more important in today's world of $1000+ handsets. Oh and it's also OnePlus' best phone yet.
