Bell’s Upcoming LG Optimus L5 To Be $199.95 Outright
Last week we let you know that Bell has plans to release the entry-level LG Optimus L5 on July 10th.

Instagram Photo Page Receives A Facelift, Adds Comments
Instagram recently updated its Photo Page website and gave users the ability to interact with photos from their computers.
