Though many other states have already legalized weed for medicinal purposes and four for recreational purposes, the size and population of California...Something tells me T-Mobile CEO John Legere will latch onto this as yet another reason to slam his company's larger rival.
The Verge relaunch is a project like no other for Vox Media. Verizon has been selling its own Ellipsis-branded line of budget Android tablets for a while now, and today the company announced its latest offering, the Ellipsis 8 HD.
