This year 2017 has essentially been the year of Ponzi schemes. While MMM who was the master of them all crashed, it has not stopped the growth of ponzi schemes in the country - with new schemes popping up left, right and center.

Of course, there are some people who ultimately benefit from these schemes but ultimately these schemes eventually crash.

Verizon Communications Inc said on Tuesday 21st February, 2017 it would buy Yahoo Inc’s core business for $4.48 billion, lowering its original offer by $350 million in the wake of two massive cyber attacks at the internet company. 

The closing of the deal, which was first announced in July, had been delayed as the companies assessed the fallout from two data breaches that Yahoo disclosed last year. 

The No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier had been trying to persuade Yahoo to amend the terms of the agreement following the attacks.

Verizon and Yahoo signed the deal on Sunday evening after weeks of talks that included calls with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and a meeting between Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam and Yahoo director Tom McInerney in New York earlier this month to agree on the amount of the price reduction, a person involved in the talks said. 

The two sides had an agreement in principle about a week earlier that included a liability sharing agreement, something that Verizon decided early on that it needed to reach a deal.

Verizon conducted brand studies and found that Yahoo’s reputation was holding up after the hacks, the person said. 
The company decided to proceed in part because it continued to believe that the deal made strategic sense and that users were loyal and engaged.

The companies said on Tuesday they expect the deal to close in the second quarter. The data breach may delay some integration of Yahoo with Verizon after the closing, the person said.

The deal brings to Verizon Yahoo’s more than 1 billion users and a wealth of data it can use to offer more targeted advertising.

In recent weeks, the internet exploded with the news of the nostalgic comeback of the Nokia 3310. 

Different renders of what was purported to be the Android reborn of the much loved Nokia 3310, this all happened HMD even had plans for a Nokia 3310 release (I actually think the internet viral trend gave them the idea of launching a revamped Nokia 3310)

However, new information has reached us that the much talked about Nokia 3310 reborn device would not as anticipated be a Nokia Android device but remain a feature phone!

Image result for nokia 3310

Below are a few details gathered about the Nokia 3310:
  • The Nokia 3310 will remain a feature phone (NOT an Android smartphone)
  • The device despite being a comeback phone is set to be designed very identical to its formal self with weight and thickness being the only difference (bummer!)
  • The physical keyboard positions remains the same but with smaller key sizes
  • The Nokia 3310 reborn will feature a larger colored screen display
  • The Nokia 3310 reborn will launch a multi-color fuselage style , including red, green and yellow etc
source: vtechgraphy

Essentially, what we are getting is simply the old Nokia 3310 with "make-up", lol

I guess that puts a damper on all the high expectations the internet made us have.

What do you think about the Nokia 3310 reborn?

This time around it is an Apple product, Yes! an iPhone!

Twitter user Brianna Olivas reported a case of her rose gold iPhone 7 Plus catching fire while sitting on a dresser. 

In a video she uploaded on Twitter (which has received over 24,000 retweets), it  shows smoke pouring out of one side of the iPhone and the case melting away.

Her device had developed a fault (it wouldn’t turn on), she visited the Apple store to get it fixed. 

According to her, the Sprint employee said her phone “looked weird when it turned on,” but they ran some tests and told her everything was fine.

The next morning she discovered it wasn’t.

Apple has since replaced her phone and are currently running tests to figure out what went wrong.

MTN has introduced a new "Collect Call Service" which allows users on the MTN network make calls to friends and families with zero airtime.

With the new MTN Collect Call Service, the call recipient will have to accept responsibility to pay for the incoming voice call.



Below are the benefits of MTN Call Service

  • MTN users will be able to call your friends and families with a zero credit.
  • MTN users will not be charged a connection fee or a subscription fee for using the service.

Now to the important question of "How do I enjoy the MTN collect call service?"

Simply follow the instructions below:


  • Dial *121*Your friend number# e.g *121*08130000000# 
  • The system would check if your friend has the minimum airtime required
  • Also check you are in the allowed tariff plan
  • Also check if your friend is in the allowed tariff plan
  • Also check if your friend is available on the network
  • While the system is performing these checks, you will hear voice prompts saying "Call in progress. Please wait while your call is being connecte"
  • After all the above conditions are checked and verified, the call recipient will be notified: "Welcome to MTN Collect call service. Press 1 to accept, 2 to reject, 3 to accept and add to white list, 4 to reject and add to black list."
  • If the call recipient presses 1 to accept the call, you will be connected
  • If the call recipient chooses other options, the call will disconnect and you will be notified: "Sorry, the call cannot be connected at the moment. Please try again later. Thank you!".
There you go, you can start making those important calls even if you have no airtime (as long as the call recipient accept to pay!)

In what is a crazy tech development, Adolph Hitler’s phone is up for auction!

Yeah, the Nazi's telephone which was used to make war orders of destruction and genocide is up for action!

Hitler's Siemens-made rotary handset was retrieved from his bunker after the capture of Berlin in 1945 and now the old "RED" relic of war is up for sale to the highest bidder.

hitler-phone-auction


The starting bid for the tech relic is set at $100,000 with bids are expected to go as high or beyond $300,000.




Personally, I'd rather get me a Google Pixel and the 2017 Porsche 712 Cayman than bid for this tech relic.

What do you think?


UPDATE: Hitler's "most destructive" weapon has been sold to the highest bidder who offered a whooping $243,000 (about N121,500,000)!!!

Mind blown!!!

We usually ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, but we seldom ask where they want to work. Well, 7-year-old Chloe Bridgewater already has her sights set: Google.

After her dad showed her pictures of Google offices decked out with bean bag chairs and slides, Chloe knew this was the company for her.


So, she handwrote a letter to the company, expressing her desire to work there.
"Dear google bossMy name is chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with google. I also want to work in a chocolate factory and do swimming in the olympics."
In the letter, Chloe discusses her qualifications - she likes computers and has a tablet on which she plays games.

Facebook has over the years continued the improvement of the platform and just recently they launched the Facebook weather feature.

Now, reports says the launch of a new standalone TV app is imminent!

The new app will allow Facebook users watch videos from their friends and their 'liked' pages on TV, as well as watching the top live videos. 

Facebook would also - like YouTube - recommend videos based on ones users previously watched but on a much larger screen. 



The new app definitely gives Facebook a better chances of competing with the likes of streaming platforms YouTube and other traditional television channels.


Any user with Apple TV, Amazon’s Fire TV and Samsung’s smart TVs will be able to view Facebook’s user-generated videos through their own boxsets.

Quoting Facebook's  CEO, Zuckerberg stated:
