Until now,

Instagram just launched mobile web sharing. Until now, users could could only browse, Like, follow, search, and see notifications on the stripped-down mobile web site and desktop site. There’s still no posting from the desktop site. But in March Instagram began adding sharing from mobile web, and the Explore tab is rolling out there now. The features missing on mobile web are video uploads, filters, Stories, and Direct Messaging.

techcrunch: Do Facebook interns get paid more than you?

Do Facebook interns get paid more than you? In reflection of the 2017 recruiting season, Glassdoor took some time to analyze its anonymized salary data, producing a report of the highest-paying internships for 2017. We went ahead and pulled the tech companies from the list, and among large tech companies, Facebook leads the pack with an average salary of $8,000 per month for interns. Quickly converting that into a yearly salary yields $96,000.

techcrunch: V-Moda has been making audio hardware since

V-Moda has been making audio hardware since 2004, but the Crossfade II is only their second over-ear Bluetooth pair. It maintains the staple traits of V-Moda audio gear: nice build quality, hexagonal ear cup design and a balanced, but deep and powerful sound profile. But it’s also weird: The black version seen here doesn’t support aptX — only the rose-gold version does. A quick refresher for you: aptX is a codec that significantly improves wireless sound quality, to the point where some picky audiophiles might choose hardware with it over that without it. In short, V-Moda might have a deal breaker, something more than a catch, which rests entirely on which color you choose.
