Recently, Twitter was flooded with a 5x6 grid of green, white, and yellow squares. The reason behind that is a daily online game called Wordle which has now been sold to The New York Times.
What is Wordle?
It is a daily game where the user has to guess a five-letter word in six attempts. The letters are spaced out in a grid, and each letter attempted gets marked either in grey, yellow or green. Green letters are part of the final word and in the right place. If they’re yellow, they’re in the final word but in the wrong place and grey letters are not a part of the final word.
The game grants users the ability to share their grid after guessing the word correctly. The grid is made of emojis without any letters. Since it’s the same word for everybody, it is engag

Uber's appeal against TFL’s decision, to not renew their licence will not be heard until the spring of 2018.
Judge Emma Arbuthnot proposed two dates, April 30 or June 25th for the five-day trial at Westminster magistrates court on Monday morning.

TfL said that the company’s approach and conduct “demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications.”
The company is in the process of repairing its reputation after they were hit with several controversies including harassment and a data breach that is thought to have affected millions.

The first text message that was sent actually used full words rather than text-speak.
The first SMS was sent 25 years ago on the 3rd December 1992. A quarter of a century ago a British test engineer, Neil Papworth, typed the first text message which said, “Merry Christmas”. It launched into a success with smartphones that some reports suggest might even have become an addiction.
The first SMS message was sent over the Vodafone GSM network in the United Kingdom using a personal computer. It originated from radio telegraphy in radio memo pagers. The initial growth was slow, with GSM customers in 1995 sending on average 0.4 messages per month. But by 2006, over 205 million messages were sent in the UK alone.
Did Neil Papworth have any idea at the time that analysts expect 7.89 trillion
