We’re entering a new era of concert venues with the grand opening of the Sphere at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. True to its name, Sphere is a humongous, circular building that graces the Las Vegas skyline completed with LED screens.
As part of its grand opening on Friday night, U2 decided to go up the stage for such a momentous event. The last time the band performed live was in December 2019. Apart from returning to the stage for the opening, the event also marked the start of the band’s 2.5 month residency.
What’s remarkable about the Sphere is that it took four years to build. The whole project cost $2.3 billion.
Mint Mobile has been known for its $15 per month offer. Unfortunately, it is not meant to be a long-term rate but only for a limited time period. The good news is that the T-Mobile MVNO has decided to extend this deal until the end of October 2023.
With this promotion in place, you can get a Mint Mobile plan for only $15 per month for the first three months of service. You can also secure this rate if you renew the plan for 12 months. With this, you only have to pay $225 for 15 months of unlimited service.
The T-Mobile MVNO has given its wireless plans an update with more data allotment. In addition to this, more countries have been added to its call and text list. This increases the number of destinations from 80 to 90. All plans now include free talk and text roaming while traveling in Mexico and Canada.
These are the plans that got an update:
$19 per month plan - now comes with 3GB of data instead of 2GB
$29 per month plan - now comes with 10GB of data instead of 6GB

It’s always important to check where you’re downloading your apps from. Recently, a technology monitoring group revealed that there are three fake YouTube apps being promoted online.
