    With the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has stepped into the “phablet” category by scaling the hardware of the 6 up while (in some ways) scaling the software from the iPad down.

    Reddit CEO Yishan Wong On Giving Stock To Users: “We Have A Crazy Plan.”

    One of the defining ironies of the social networking IPOs over the last decade is that the financial returns have been concentrated among so few when the value has been created by so many. But current Reddit CEO Yishan Wong wants to change that.
