This back and forth between Facebook (and Instagram) and Snapchat doesn’t look like ending any time soon.

According to Engadget, Facebook is currently testing the feature in Poland where, under the guise of celebrating the “Messenger Day”, it has rolled out a new tool which lets users on Messenger click and upload photos and videos, that are visible to all their friends, and disappear within 24 hours of being put up. And yes, these Messenger Stories can also be decorated using stickers, tests and doodles, just like in Snapchat, and now in Instagram Stories. More →

Watch a French man calmly enter an Apple Store and destroy devices on display using a steel ball

You can see him calmly undocking each iPhone, iPod Touch and a even MacBook Air. He shows no sign of panic, lays them all flat on the table and crushes their screens with a blast of firm smashes.
