#3 A jaw-dropping 100 million WhatsApp voice calls are made each day

WhatsApp just announced that over 100 Million voice calls are placed each day. That’s about 1100 calls every second. There’s no mention of how many minutes that amounts to, but I’d expect it to be at least 5 minutes on average, based on anecdotal evidence from my surroundings.|TechBot Daily|

photo-daily#7 Apple stops selling the Thunderbolt Display

The Thunderbolt Display’s technology is long in the tooth. These days, the $999 official price can get you a good ultra-wide Quad HD or 4K monitor.It’s certainly not the most tempting option in Apple’s roster when you can buy a similarly-sized iMac with a 5K display. Also, the screen’s use of first-generation Thunderbolt left it behind the times when Thunderbolt 3 is starting to show up in some PCs.|TechBot Daily|

In one sense, Facebook’s move is another amplification in the ongoing video and messaging war the company is waging against Snapchat. The goal is to make video, whether recorded or broadcast live, as dynamic and appealing as possible. Snapchat’s lenses have been a huge hit, so it’s no wonder Facebook has acted fast to incorporate MSQRD technology into its fast-growing Live platform.|TechBot Daily|
