First Apple store unionizes, Messaging app Telegram subscription tier, and Walmart and Roku ‘Shoppable ads’
A first for Apple employees, workers at a store in Towson, Maryland have voted to unionize. It’s the first of Apple’s 270 U.S. stores to do so. Union leaders say workers at about 10% of Apple’s locations have expressed interest in unionizing.
Messaging app Telegram has rolled out its premium subscription tier. It offers faster downloads and a maximum file size that’s twice the standard option. Telegram premium also doubles a user’s groups and channels, pinned chats and public links. All for around 5 dollars per month.
Walmart and Roku are joining forces on so-called ‘Shoppable ads’. That means you can buy items directly from an ad on your TV. Viewers can simply press "OK" on their remote, proceed to checkout and pay. No need to switch to your phone or computer to make a purchase.
