“X” has launched what’s called the “not-a-bot” program. The subscription service charges new users one dollar per year to post on the site. It’s being tested in New Zealand and the Philippines.

The new Apple Pencil goes on sale next month. It has USB-C charging – with the port hidden under a sliding cap the pencil can also attach to the side of an iPad. At 79 dollars – the latest Pencil is 50 bucks cheaper than its predecessor. But it’s missing some features like wireless pairing and charging.

Finally, PayPal has launched a package tracking feature on its app. It allows users to see the status of their online orders, whether you paid with PayPal or not. The free feature can be used through a Gmail account linked to PayPal, or by typing in the tracking details.
