This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. According to the Washington Post Facebook's trending news story algorithm is still serving up big stories. After a six week survey the Post found a number of link stories that were categorically false in addition to many links to items that simply weren't news. It seems Facebook still has plenty of work to do. [MUSIC] If you're planning on getting Google's new Pixel phone to use on Verizon, you won't need to worry about getting phone updates in a timely manner. According to a statement received by RS Technica, Verizon fully expects Pixel's phone updates to hit their customers simultaneously as Google pushes them out. Even better, the phone that Verizon will sell in stores will be carrier unlocked, meaning if you leave Verison, you can bring it elsewhere. Pandora has a new look and a new service. Boasting a new bold logo, the streaming music company is now offering $5 a month subscription service that will give users unlimited songskips, no commercials and track replay. This is in addition to a $10 a month full-streaming service, that plan to launch later this year. You can stay up to date with the latest by downloading the CNet tech today app, in the Apple App Store.
