UPDATE: Check out our U Mobile UNLIMITED Power Prepaid vs Power Prepaid plan comparison.
U Mobile has always been shaking things up in the telco industry with its generous data offering. First, they had introduced Video-Onz which gave unlimited free video streaming and this was followed by Music-Onz which does the same thing for music. Then, they had Game-Onz data add-ons designed for unlimited gaming through WiFi tethering.
Now they are introducing App Onz which offers unlimited free data for social. This lets you enjoy Facebook (including Messenger), Twitter and Instagram without utilising your normal data quota.
U Mobile Video-Onz is an awesome way to enjoy videos without utilising your precious data quota. Now they have made it even better by adding Facebook, Twitter and Netflix to its list of supported channels.
Social engagement is vital for any company these days. For an aspirational brand like Apple, they aren’t really that active especially on Twitter. Sure they have a few accounts like Apple Music and AppStore, but they are mostly one way channels to promote their products and services.
With Apple continuing to break sales records for every release of its new product, the Cupertino company appears to be openning its doors for better customer interaction. Finally they have just created a new @AppleSupport twitter account to directly address customer questions as soon as possible. The account will be used to share tips and tricks for your iDevice from time to time.
The case of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) forcing Apple to install a backdoor into their iPhones has been raging on for some time. While Apple is adamant that they don’t want to do so — based on this letter from Tim Cook to their customers — the FBI are pretty persistent in trying to get them to comply.
With two opposing views, people will start to take sides and the most recent high-profile tech person to choose a side is Bill Gates and while it seemed like he was with the FBI in this case, recent reports indicate a more moderate stance.

Google’s search engine is a powerful tool. The amount of knowledge on the Internet is endless and sometimes that’s a bad thing. Individuals motivated in desecrating others that have opposing views can use it to make homemade weapons and spread their ideology to the world.
Exploitation of information is rife in our current age and the misuse of it can have devastating effects. Yes, the Internet is our friend – in most cases – and Google wants to keep it that way.
Hence, when you search keywords that are related to extremism, Google will start showing you anti-radicalisation links.

France suffered a horrible loss on Friday, as parts of Paris came under siege by terrorists. In the face of this security breach, many tech organisations used their own means to help out by offering their services. The people behind AirBnB, Facebook, Google, Skype, Twitter all jumped into disaster relief mode. Can they along with other organisations continue in the light of similar tragic events around the world? We hope they do.
Whenever we face any technical issues, social media is probably the easiest way to get help. Most service providers are able to respond to your complaints via Facebook and Twitter, saving you time from calling their customer support hotline.
Before making a complaint, TM wants you to ensure that you’re communicating with the right channel. As of late, a couple of fake social accounts misrepresenting TM have cropped up online.
In addition to AirAsia’s on-board WiFi service, you can now use Twitter in the air. Powered by Rokki, the in-flight WiFi service was initially introduced just for basic messaging. This lets you access popular IM apps such as WeChat, WhatsApp, LINE and Kakaotalk, while Viber will be supported soon.
Starting July next month, Twitter will be removing its 140 character limit for its Direct Messaging feature. This allows for longer private messages, making it a more viable as an instant messaging channel. In the meantime, they are making some changes to its API where developers and 3rd party clients would need to make some adjustments to accommodate to the latest changes.
This makes it easier to report problems to brand customer support on Twitter especially to airlines and telcos. With the current 140 character limit, usually one would need to split their messages into several DMs to get the full message across. Take note that this only affects DMs and the normal tweets will still retain its character limit.
Basically what the app allows you to do is it lets you watch and record live broadcasts straight from your smartphone and it looks like it will be a game changer when it comes to how we share live broadcasts.
