Still rocking grandfathered unlimited data through Verizon Wireless? Better enjoy it while it lasts, because the carrier plans to drive a stake through its heart when Big Red makes the switch to family data plans this summer. Should make good fodder for Sprint’s future marketing, since they continue to be the only U.S. carrier offering truly unlimited data plans.

Seems like everyone has some big game or app news today, so with today being a rather slow news day anyway, today’s recap is all about apps and games -- but we couldn’t help but slip one app-related news story into the mix that should make Instagram fans chuckle. Can you spot it among the rest of the day’s news for Thursday, April 19, 2012?

But that day isn’t today, so sit back and lower your blood pressure with some tech news for Wednesday, April 11, 2012.

Anyone feeling up to acquiring an overworked tech blogger or two? We work really hard and we don’t require much care and feeding, honest! Well, no takers here, it seems… so let’s get busy spreading the news for this wonderful Wednesday, March 21, 2012.
