This weekend we said goodbye to an old friend whose legacy will live on in our memories forevermore. Ah, who are we kidding? Nobody used the free Twitter Music app, and that's why the microblogging service is driving a stake in its heart next month. This and oh so much more in our weekend edition of the news recap!
