Currently, Facebook's News Feed is essentially an unindexed stream of data from friends or pages you've followed. The new Paper app is attempting to make that a better experience by letting you compile content into sections and favorite interests.
"You can customize Paper with a choice of more than a dozen other sections about various themes and topics—from photography and sports to food, science and design. Each section includes a rich mix of content from emerging voices and well-known publications," the company explained in a news posting about the app.Paper also changes the design by letting you thumb through cards instead of a vertical stream. You can tilt your phone to explore high-resolution panoramic photos. Full screen videos will automatically play. You'll also know exactly what your post or photo will look like thanks to live previews.

A video was recently released of a man on a Seattle metro bus fighting back against a gunman who was robbing everyone of their cell phones.

A Disney Cruise employee named Nelson has become internet infamous after allegedly stealing a passenger's iPhone and using it to take several photos. Thanks to Apple's Photo Stream feature, the owner of the phone was able to grab Nelson's snaps of himself, his friends and his girlfriend and upload them to her Facebook account.
"This is Nelson," she wrote next to one photo. "Nelson stole my iPhone."
While it hasn't been proven that this man actually took the phone and then foolishly failed to delete the owner's account before using it as his own, things certainly don't look good.
"I have alerted the officials of the Disney Cruiseline and forwarded them the photos. Hopefully I'll get my phone back and maybe some free passes to Disneyland," wrote the alleged theft victim.
Disney has yet to comment on the incident.
