Beginning today, US Cellular has revised its Shared Connect plans, offering a more “streamlined” experience for customers. According to US Cellular, the plans bring more data and bonus value, which you probably won’t hear anyone complaining about.

Prisma, that one app everyone was talking about for a few days, then was forgot about because Pokemon GO was conquering the world, made an important announcement yesterday. Taking to its Facebook page, the company announced that offline styles will be available for Android users “soon,” while iOS users can apparently benefit from the change already.
The way Prisma works, or at least, did work, was you would send your image up into Prisma’s servers, which would then use a neural net algorithm to produce a stunning work of art based on a style you liked.

Now, with the move to offline, a device’s onboard CPU will handle the computing, meaning we won’t need to worry about overcrowded servers anymore. It remains to be seen for Android users if this move will be seen as positive or negative. (more…)
