Move over, Pebble: The Coolest Cooler is now the biggest Kickstarter campaign ever

By about 3 mins ago.

The Coolest Cooler took Kickstarter by storm a while ago, emerging as an interesting, yet unexpected project that could in theory raise more money than the Pebble smartwatch, which pulled in $10,266,845 in pledges in its time, setting the record for the crowd-funding website. And now, the Coolest Cooler has managed to beat that record a few days before its campaign wraps up. More →

Hilarious Baby iPad Mini Mockup Page

This is how an Apple fanboy and former employee introduced his baby to the world

This is how an Apple fanboy and former employee introduced his baby to the world

By about 39 mins ago.

One of the things Apple is known for is its attention to detail especially when it comes to crafting marketing materials that sell its devices, including the elaborate “show” Apple puts on its website for highlighting the main features of a newly announced product. And what better way for a former Apple employee Andreas Kleinke to introduce to his baby boy to the world than by replicating Apple’s iPad mini page and replacing the tablet with his own mini, Jonathan Henry.

Why Is Comcast So Bad

Comcast says it has to smother competition to protect poor people

Comcast says it has to smother competition to protect poor people

By about 1 hour ago.

Ever wonder why America’s two biggest cable providers don’t bother competing with one another? Or why you have only one choice for Internet service in your neighborhood? Or why cable prices have been rising at more than triple the rate of inflation? Well, wonder no more. Ars Technica flags some recent filings sent to the Federal Communications Commission sent by Internet service providers CenturyLink and RCN that detail how Comcast works tirelessly to keep them out of its markets and then justifies its actions as a favor to poor people.

By about 2 hours ago.

It’s an unlikely pairing: The world’s smartest looking smartwatch and the world’s stupidest mobile app. And yet they have indeed teamed up, because mobile app Yo has just announced that “Motorola is going to use the Yo platform to release their long awaited Moto 360 smart watch.” And yes, this promotion is just as awesomely stupid as you think it is.

BlackBerry teams with Verizon to keep business away from Android and iOS

By about 2 hours ago.

BlackBerry hasn’t had too much luck with its recovery efforts over the past several months, but there are still plenty of businesses that depend on the Canadian company’s devices and services in order to function. As BlackBerry struggles to regain momentum in the smartphone market, it is looking for ways to hold on to its existing clients, which is why a partnership with Verizon could be huge for enterprise customers.

Is The Universe A Simulation

We are about to find out if our universe really is a hologram

We are about to find out if our universe really is a hologram

By about 2 hours ago.

What could be the most important scientific experiment of our lifetime is about to begin. The so-called Holometer Experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory aims to determine whether our perception of a three-dimensional universe is just an illusion. Do we actually live on a 2D plane, as a holographic projection? There is a well-established theory that states we are indeed living in a hologram, with a pixel size of about 10 trillion trillion times smaller than an atom. This has certain implications, some of which are quite sinister, even unspeakably horrific. More →

Wrangling push notifications: Control your phone before it controls you

Wrangling push notifications: Control your phone before it controls you

By about 3 hours ago.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably been there. Buzzed, dinged, and blooped to death. For as incredible as smartphones are, their ability to notify you about anything and everything can quickly become a nightmare. Early on, in simpler times, it was a common technological courtesy for your phone to notify you whenever a call, text, or email was inbound. We branched out a bit with instant messaging, and if you were really crazy, you might even ask the ESPN app to ping you whenever your favorite team recorded a W. More →

What we love about GoPro videos is that they give us a first-person look at incredible sights and daring stunts that we ourselves might not want to go through. A terrific GoPro video recently posted on YouTube shows us some gorgeous footage of a man on a jet ski zipping through the water that winds through Mountain Sheep Canyon at Lake Powell, which is locate across both Arizona and Utah.

Xperia Z3 Vs iPhone 6

This is the phone Sony will launch to take on Apple’s iPhone 6

This is the phone Sony will launch to take on Apple’s iPhone 6

By about 4 hours ago.

After several years of complete and total domination by Samsung and Apple, a handful of rival device makers are finally starting to see some gains in the global smartphone market. Huawei and Lenovo have experienced some solid growth in recent quarters, and up and comer Xiaomi is among a handful of smaller Asian companies seeing big gains in that region. Meanwhile, Sony has continued to struggle despite launching several solid smartphones over the past couple of years.

The fall and the coming holiday shopping season are expected to be the hottest period in Apple’s storied history, with a record holiday quarter expected on the back of the iPhone 6, 5.5-inch iPhone phablet and iWatch. To combat the new iPhone 6, which is widely expected to quickly become the best-selling smartphone of all time, Sony plans to release a new flagship phone of its own — and the clearest photos we’ve seen of that new handset so far have just leaked.

iWatch Battery Life

It looks like Apple’s iWatch may come with a painful compromise

It looks like Apple’s iWatch may come with a painful compromise

By about 4 hours ago.

Despite the fact that the iWatch represents Apple’s first dive into an “exciting new product category” since it unleashed the original iPad back in 2010, the new device isn’t Apple’s most hotly anticipated launch this fall. In fact, it likely falls into the No. 3 spot behind the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone phablet. Consumers and investors alike are still waiting anxiously to see Apple’s take on wrist-worn wearables, but a new report suggests that the company may have been forced to forgo its typical no-compromise approach to mobile devices, and the result could be a big letdown for users.

Xbox One Standalone Kinect Release Date

Microsoft thinks you’ll pay $150 for something you didn’t want to spend $100 on

Microsoft thinks you’ll pay $150 for something you didn’t want to spend $100 on

By about 5 hours ago.

One of the smartest moves Microsoft made this year was unbundling the Kinect from the Xbox One. The Kinect is an intriguing device, but lacking significant support from virtually every game released on the Xbox One up to this point, gamers in the market for a new console saw the $500 price tag and decided to take their chances with the PlayStation 4 instead. Sales picked up though once the Xbox One dropped to $400 and now Microsoft is finally ready to reintroduce the Kinect as a separate product. More →

Mozilla Firefox OS Smartphone

This $33 smartphone is the first-generation iPhone of 2014

By about 5 hours ago.

Earlier this week, Mozilla unveiled its first-ever low-end smartphone for customers in India: the Intex Cloud FX. At just $33, the Firefox OS device is one of the cheapest smartphones on the market, but how do its specifications stand up to other cheap phones in emerging markets? The Cloud FX is clearly not meant to compete with the Galaxy S5 or the iPhone 5s, but there is one Apple handset it might be able to go toe-to-toe with. More →
