Available March 6th

This isn’t the first time Ansari has teamed up with Netflix. His 2013 special Buried Alive debuted with the streaming service, but was later available as a $ 5 download (something Louie C.K. knows a thing or two about). According to Variety, Live at Madison Square Garden tackles topics like gender inequality and the food industry.  The 50 Cent grapefruit joke is dead.

Netflix’s current comedy selection is pretty stacked. Right now, you can stream stand-up specials from the likes of…

Pinterest brings rounded corners back in style

“The Pinterest app has a sleek new look and feel, and is faster than ever,” according to the release notes for Pinterest 4.0 on iOS. What it should say is “The Pinterest app now has rounded corners like Mac OS X did before 2007,” or “The Pinterest app now makes your iPhone look like it’s running webOS.”

While the Android version has been similarly rounded for a while, the effect isn’t as pronounced on that platform because of the ever-present status bar at the top. On iOS, the clipped corners make it look as if the screen itself is round, harkening back to the days of CRT monitors.

Well-timed update to match the smooth, rounded iPhone 6 and 6 Plus? Ill-advised design decision that plunges Pinterest back into the mid-00’s? You be the…

Facebook’s new Rooms app brings bite-sized forums to your iPhone

“We’re not trying to build the next Snapchat — we’re trying to build the next WordPress.”

These aren’t the words you expect to hear from the guy building Facebook’s next big app. Facebook has spent the last two years cloning Snapchat, trying to buy Snapchat, and eventually creating a pseudo-Snapchat. None of these plans have worked, so now it’s building… a blogging platform?

Not exactly. Today, Facebook is launching Rooms, an iPhone app that lets you create tiny message boards for posting text, photos, and videos. In each room you can create your own username and identity, and post or comment with friends or strangers about anything from minimalist furniture to Kendama or Destiny. Like on conventional message boards, you can set…
