3. Upgrading to iOS 7.1 may actually speed up your iPhone 4
iOS 7 was arguably designed with the latest iPhones in mind, both of which are more powerful and capable than their predecessors. It wasn't therefore a surprise when iPhone 4 users who received the upgrade complained their smartphone would slow down and crash even more than before. But with the latest iterative version, iOS 7.1, Apple reckons it has fixed this, making older phones running the new software even faster than ever, making the opportunity for users to upgrade almost impossible to turn down.

4. Netflix actually got faster after it opened its wallet
Popular television streaming service Netflix agreed earlier in late February week to pay Comcast to ensure its video content streams as fast as it should, even though Netflix will not receive any extra bandwidth for the privilege of coughing up the dough. After the video streaming firm opened its wallet (though it declined Verizon's kind offer for the same treatment) Netflix actually got faster, according to its latest speed rankings. For now, Comcast customers may see a little relief for the rights to access certain exclusive content on the Internet streaming service.
5. Senators don't mind government surveillance, so long as they're exempt
Oh, the hypocrisy — which many were to point out, including whistleblower Edward Snowden — that chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) supported the NSA spying on Americans, but loses her mind when the CIA searched congressional computers. The accusations were that the CIA secretly removed documents from committee members' computers in response to an investigation into activities by the intelligence agency. CIA director John Brennan denied the agency snooped on lawmaker's computers, however.
