Nokia offers free Netflix to Vodafone UK Lumia customers

Nokia is offering a free subscription to Netflix to customers buying certain Lumia devices on Vodafone in the United Kingdom. Originally reported by the Financial Times and later confirmed on the Vodafone website, the purchase of the Lumia 625 or Lumia 925 will provide six months of Netflix, while the Lumia 1020 includes a free full year subscription to the video streaming service.

Microsoft using Twitter-style follower system on Xbox One

The Xbox One will use a reciprocating system for its friends management system, according to a demonstration by Larry Hyrb, also known as Major Nelson. Players can follow anyone else on the console through the Friends app, but only those following back will be classed as a friend, and allow for the sharing of real-time achievements, online activity alerts, and other notifications. The console will also have a Twitter-style activity feed, listing anything that friends or followed people do on the service.
