No matter what side of the argument you are on, it’s very obvious that climate change and global warming wreaking all kinds of havoc on our weather.

Yahoo intros new Livetext Video Chat app

I used to think that texting won’t be further advanced but we’ve seen in recent months that it can still be enhanced.

Launchers are heaven-sent because they make browsing and sifting through all those Android apps easier. You know how hard it is to locate that one app you really need especially if you have tons of pages of all apps that you don't actually use.

Yahoo’s redesigned mobile search now looks like Google (of course)

It was an eccentric English writer named Charles Colton who coined the now famous quote, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Google must now really be flattered as erstwhile rival Yahoo has overhauled its mobile search site, now bringing the most relevant results (apparently, previously, they've been giving us irrelevant ones?) and actionable results, just like what Google has been doing for the past years.

Yahoo to reportedly launch search and digital assistant this year

iOS users have their favorite friend Siri, while Android users mostly have their very own Google Now. Even Windows has its own Cortana, not up to par yet with the two, but slowly getting there. Yahoo is now saying, "Wait, wait, we'd like to join this party too!" CEO Marissa Mayer has indicated that they are indeed coming up with their own digital assistant that will be available as an app for mobile devices.

Yahoo Screen now with Chromecast support but limited only

If you're a fan of the cult favorite but dismally rated comedy show Community, then you were gratified to know that despite NBC's cancellation last year, Yahoo was kind enough to pick it up and renew it for a 6th season.
