This Google Opportunity Could Spell Serious Competition For Facebook - Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) | Seeking Alpha: "Discovery of apps continues to be a serious challenge on the Google Play Store. With over 1.5M apps, finding the right content is becoming a chore for users. The soaring cost of installs sold by Facebook is pricing many developers out of the market. Given its ads business, Google could easily build a $1bln+ business by inserting ads into the Play Store."

Researchers from Nvidia Show a Way to Quadruple the Resolution of Virtual Reality | MIT Technology Review: "Researchers at Nvidia now have a possible solution. They have built a prototype VR headset to demonstrate a technique that can quadruple the pixel density of an LCD panel. They call their new design—made by modifying two off-the-shelf LCD panels—a “cascaded display.” “This is useful in applications like a head-mounted display, where each pixel looks really large because it is very close to your eye,” says David Luebke, a senior director of graphics research at Nvidia."

A Neutral Guide to Net Neutrality | SingleHop: "...In April 2014, a set of rules proposed by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, a former lobbyist for cable and wireless companies, indicated that the FCC may abandon its previous Net Neutrality position and consider letting ISPs provide tiered service. Wheeler denied that the proposed rules changed the FCC’s position,[13] but more than 100 companies supporting Net Neutrality wrote a letter to the chairman in May criticizing the proposed rules...."

FCC Chairman blasts Verizon:
The FCC Chairman blasted Verizon... over a plan to slow down speeds for some customers who are using unlimited data plans that have been grandfathered-in. "Reasonable network management concerns the technical management of your network; it is not a loophole designed to enhance your revenue streams," Wheeler wrote in a letter to Verizon Wireless CEO Daniel Mead. 'It is disturbing to me that Verizon Wireless would base its 'network management' on distinctions among its customers' data plans, rather than on network architecture or technology." Verizon Wireless, in a statement, called its announcement last week a 'very limited" effort, which is 'only targeting cell sites experiencing high demand."
