The secret meaning behind the NBA's esports league logo

The NBA and 2K Games are launching their own esports league for the NBA 2K video game series and on Monday they unveiled the league's logo.

SEE ALSO: The Phoenix Suns were secretly replaced by robots. Here's the proof.

The logo for the NBA 2K League is reminiscent of the NBA's own logo but instead of featuring a basketball player, it features the design of a basketball.

The vertical pill-shape of the logo and its red, white, and blue coloring speaks to the NBA's own logo, and the font of the league name below is used by 2K Games.

Along with the logo reveal, 2K Games released a video that digs into the design process. Read more...

Former Facebook exec says network is 'destroying how society works'

"You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies." 

That was the tagline for The Social Network, the film about creating Facebook, and it's only become more relevant as the social network has grown to more than 2 billion people. Those "few enemies" are former Facebook executives, people who helped build the tech giant. 

“The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works," said Chamath Palihapitiya, who joined Facebook in 2007 and served as its vice president for user growth. He was referring to the iconic "like" button and other reactions we have while browsing News Feed.  Read more...

The NFL signs a new Verizon deal that's great for consumers

NFL rights are the biggest in sports media—and the closest thing we have to weather vane for where our jumbled world of media and tech are headed.

On Monday, news broke that Verizon had agreed to a new five-year deal to stream NFL games to mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). The telecom giant is paying around $2 billion for the rights.

Here's the big thing: Verizon has no exclusivity. They'll host the games for anyone and everyone no matter what network they're on. And this kicks in for the upcoming NFL playoffs.

This is good for NFL fans. Getting online access to football games had become a relatively byzantine adventure. With Verizon hosting the games but not having exclusivity—if you're an AT&T or T-Mobile wireless customer you previously couldn't access the games—you'll be able to watch no matter what service you subscribe to.

The chilling reason everyone's sharing that 'New Yorker' story about dating
