Oh the weather outside is getting a little frightful, but that's all right. As long as I have my iOS device to keep me warm, I'll be all right. And here's just a few of the price drops and freebies burning up our mobile devices these days.
For social butterflies who practically live on Facebook, it's hard to understand why those who don't wouldn't want to use the network's login for everything -- and now, that even extends to Facebook Messenger.
After a couple months of touting its new auto-syncing photo feature for iOS and Android, Facebook has finally made Photo Sync available for one and all. The option should show up at the top of your Facebook app as the system begins to roll out to the masses.
Less than a month remains in the holiday season, and if you're like most people, you're probably scrambling to come up with gift ideas. If there's a music, movie, or app fan on your list, an iTunes gift card is always a safe bet. Starting today, giving iTunes digital credits is as easy as logging into Facebook.
Two more days until the smell of turkey will be wafting across the homes of many U.S. readers on Thanksgiving Day, followed by the insanity of Black Friday the following day. If the thought of family coming to visit is just too much to bear, why not take a brief time-out and catch up on news you might have missed on Monday?
If you preordered a cellular-equipped iPad mini or fourth-gen iPad, you might be among the first to have received one starting Thursday.

The iPhone was a tipping point for social media, enabling immediate sharing of life events with loved ones. But with so many different networks now drawing our attention, what we really need is an app to pull them all together in one place. That’s the concept behind Moment.me, which tries to be an aggregator for photos, videos, and tweets pulled from Facebook, Twitter, and other services, presenting them in a real-time, multi-point of view layout, neatly organized by event. Or rather, that’s what it’s supposed to do.
It was a relatively quiet weekend on the Apple front (unless you count that settlement with HTC which we'll get into in a moment), with most of the tech world focused on the debut of Nokia's new Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia handsets hitting AT&T and Verizon. Curious about what you might have missed? Glad you asked, because we've assembled a handful of those stories right here for you...
Happy election day! We don't know about you, but we'll be quite happy to see those political ads leave the airwaves come Wednesday so things can get back to normal with corporations trying to sell us their wares instead. Before you head out to vote today, why not take a quick look at a handful of stories you might have missed on Monday?
If there's such a thing as a "private" social network, it's got to be Path. Until now, the micro sharing service has been limited strictly to smartphones, but that now changes with the debut of Path for iPad on Thursday.
