Report: T-Mobile and Sprint may agree to merger as soon as next week

In a landscape run by AT&T and Verizon, the two star-crossed lovers have struggled separately to carve a little chunk of the world (including the US telecommunications market) for themselves.

Hi-Rez Studios' mobile MOBA 'Paladins Strike' is available worldwide

Hi-Rez Studios is best known for their console and PC games. Most notably their 3rd-person MOBA Smite is one of their biggest successes, though many may have the opinion it has seen better days.
