Like Google Chrome, YouTube will now have an incognito mode. It will work similarly but for different reasons and is part of a new update rolling out as we speak in many places for many users.

This week a popular subject in the news was streaming services. Not only did we hear a little about music streaming services, we heard a lot about various video streaming services. We live in an age where the old way of doing things is being phased out in replace of new, easier but often more costly methods. Video streaming is a good example of a service that is now being adopted by mainstream society.
