Earlier this month the music streaming service Spotify began sporting a new look with a darker theme. This new theme has made accessing your favorite music smoother than before. On the  other hand twitter redesigned their user page which looks an awful lot like Facebook. They’re has also been additional tweaks and features to twitter such as pop up notifications.

Facebook will be taking the chat feature off of their main mobile apps. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg told TechCrunch that “The reason why we’re doing that is we found that having it as a second-class thing inside the Facebook app makes it so there’s more friction to replying to messages, so we would rather have people be using a more focused experience for that,”

So this means users will have to download that Messenger app if you want to keep that direct line of communication open with your Facebook friends on the go.

Naughty dog’s critically acclaimed playstation exclusive “The Last Of Us” remastered edition was announced earlier this week for release this summer for the PS4. Not only will the game have updated visuals it will also have director’s commentary and also comes with multiplayer and single-player DLC.

Amazon recently purchased the popular comic-book app called comixology with hopes of planning a way for comixology and the kindle to work better together.

The world’s first set of smart eyewear called the Google Glasses which provide a hands free smartphone experience will be available for purchase in the U.S. on April 15th. The product will only be available for limited time and will cost $1,500. The pair of Google Glasses being offered next week is not the final retail version of the product, which is expected to go on sale later this year.
