Apple is jumping in its yearly education discount program by offering free or discounted Beats headphones to teachers and students buying a new iPad Pro and/or MacBook.

AT&T now offers new prepaid monthly plans, GoPhone may soon be rebranded

AT&T GoPhone may soon be rebranded to AT&T Prepaid, as the carrier offers new plan rates for its prepaid services.

The cheapest plan the company now offers is certainly an attractive one and gives you 1GB of data, unlimited talk and texts in the US, and unlimited texts to over 100 countries. The plan costs $35 a month and is quite an upgrade for AT&T …

If you need to purchase one or more new iPhones from T-Mobile, you may want to do it now, as the Uncarrier has a couple of attractive deals for you.

There’s no denying that Google’s Assistant holds lots of potential with its ability to interpret queries in plain English, but there’s still room for improvement ahead of it.
