Opera Software launches mobile internet packages sponsored to cover customer cost

Opera Software has announced the launch of its Sponsored Web Pass product, offering mobile Internet packages to consumers that provide free data. Operators can team up with advertisers to sponsor the cost of customers' mobile Internet access, in time- or content-based increments. By watching a short ad from a corporate sponsor prior to viewing selected content, users can then engage with the content in their (free) Web Pass for its duration. When the Sponsored Web Pass expires, users are given the opportunity to opt-out of continuing using data. Operators interested in utilizing Opera's Web Pass can contact Opera Software.

Flickr updates Web version, includes photo insertion into comments

This week, Flickr launched an improved commenting system to its web version. The photo-based social network service recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, and now allows users to insert a photo into a comment, much like one can through Facebook and Google+. Users can post an image's URL into a comment discussion box, and when posted, the image will appear. Comments can be edited and deleted as desired.
