Reddit has launched a new app for its popular “Ask Me Anything” series, as the front page of the Internet works to expand beyond its desktop dominance.
The release, first reported by Variety, marks Reddit’s re-entry into the mobile app market following an ill-fated 2011 effort. The site said in April on its job board that it had started to explore developing mobile apps.

BERLIN — It’s September, which means the gadgets are coming.
IFA 2014, which stands for Internationale Funkausstellung (and translates to the international radio exhibition), kicks off this week in Berlin and will usher in collections of new smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, giant TVs and home appliances.
