MetroPCS just gave you another great reason to lose your contract

MetroPCS scam calls vs T-Mobile

There's fewer and fewer reasons for anyone to tie themselves to a postpaid monthly cell contract. It used to be that postpaid customers got all the good perks, better pricing, and higher-tier plans, but that just isn't true any more.

This week's example: MetroPCS, T-Mobile's prepaid arm, will roll out spam call identification and blocking services that T-Mobile currently offers to its postpaid customers.

Snakehive Releases A New Vintage Wallet Case For The iPhone 7

Crafted from carefully selected full grain cowhide leather from Europe, this case was designed to provide a stylish and convenient cover for your iPhone 7, that’s also great as a wallet and a stand for watching videos.

Apple Might Build Its Own OLED Display Panels

The latest talk has it that Apple would like to become more independent of Samsung, and manufacture its own OLED display panels.

Recent reports are stating that Apple has invested in a number of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) machines from Korea-based Sunic Systems, in doing so, the company is hoping to research and develop its own OLED display panels. At this point, Apple depends solely on the South Korean company for producing the OLED display panels, it is said this year along Samsung will produce around 80 million panels for the iPhone 8. Apple is hoping with this current investment to research and develop its own OLED technology, and slowly phase out Samsung.

Apple has never manufactured its own display panels, one reason might be because OLED display panels are said to be difficult to manufacture. In the past, Apple has used LCD panels for its devices, but the current report is stating Apple will make a change for the upcoming iPhone 8 and switch to OLED display, which is said to have sharper contrast ratios and faster refresh rates. The upcoming iPhone 8 will be the companies first OLED display device.
