Have you had your fill of Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns? Well, too bad—Reddit has launched its own crowd funding tool called Redditmade. It's a way for Redditors to fund their idea "with no upfront costs or risk." Technically, there is risk, but it's all on the backers.
If you're going to waste time on Reddit, you might as well do it in style. Reddit News has always been reliable, but now it's pretty stylish too with a big update to v7. What's included? Material stuff. You like that, right?
You still can't just buy a OnePlus One, even after all these months. There are invites floating around, but it's an extra hurdle you have to clear to give them your money.
