How to quickly and easily enable Apple’s sleek new ‘dark mode’ on your Mac

By about 3 mins ago.

Apple’s new OS X Yosemite software is a huge update for Mac users. The latest version of Apple’s desktop software includes a great visual overhaul that makes the user interface much flatter and more modern, with some apps that even go as far as to mirror the look of iOS 8. But beyond the obvious new graphical changes, Yosemite also includes a nifty new “dark mode” that makes a few key changes to OS X’s interface that actually have a pretty dramatic impact on the look of the operating system.

iPad Air 2 Bend Test

Video: The iPad Air 2 withstands a ‘bend test’ about as well as you’d expect

Video: The iPad Air 2 withstands a ‘bend test’ about as well as you’d expect

By about 2 hours ago.

The reason the “bend test” videos for the iPhone 6 Plus went viral is that they raised questions about whether the device would bend just from carrying it around in your pants pocket. This shouldn’t be a concern for anyone who owns an iPad Air 2, since the tablet was never intended to be carried around in your pants pocket and we can’t imagine any reason for a sane person to do so. All the same, that hasn’t stopped YouTuber Marvin Macht from putting the iPad Air 2 through a bend test of his own and the tablet predictably did not hold up well under pressure. More →

T-Mobile’s coverage would be great if it weren’t for those pesky walls

T-Mobile’s coverage would be great if it weren’t for those pesky walls

By about 2 hours ago.

The sudden success of T-Mobile has been impressive. With an energetic CEO and some of the most competitive pricing in the industry, the “Un-carrier” has made a big splash, convincing thousands of smartphone owners to drop their plans and make the switch. There’s only one problem: T-Mobile’s coverage still doesn’t match up with that of Verizon and AT&T.

8 awesome Android 5.0 Lollipop features missing from iOS 8

By about 2 hours ago.

After initially showing off iOS 8 during its annual WWDC event this past summer, Apple finally released the software in September and then issued its first major update earlier this month. iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 represent huge steps forward for Apple’s mobile devices, bringing tons of great new functions to compatible iPhone and iPad models. Features like audio messaging, the new QuickType keyboard and Apple’s Continuity functionality are all awesome additions to iOS, but of course there is still plenty missing from Apple’s mobile platform.

Now that Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop software is official, it’s time to take a look at a few key features found in Google’s latest and greatest that are sadly still absent in iOS. More →

The iPhone 6 Plus might have a serious software problem you should know about

By about 3 hours ago.

Even though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch was a great success for the company, with 2014 iPhones registering record sales according to Apple, several issues have stained Apple’s iPhone 6 launch, including iOS 8 software problems and the #Bendgate mess, to name just a few. More recently, it was discovered that the iPhone 6’s plastic antenna covers also come with one unexpected flaw. Now, AppleInsider points us to a growing thread on Apple’s support forum that details a potential software issue affecting iPhone 6 Plus handsets. More →

Google Inbox Download

This free app is a fantastic alternative to Google’s game-changing email app ‘Inbox’

This free app is a fantastic alternative to Google’s game-changing email app ‘Inbox’

By about 3 hours ago.

Rumors swirled last year suggesting that Google was trying to acquire email startup Mailbox, but all that came to an end when Mailbox was acquired by Dropbox. So, Google decided to build its own Mailbox. Unveiled and released earlier this week, “Inbox” is Google’s new email app that has tech bloggers buzzing, once again heralding a fresh take on email as a game-changer. We have used the app ourselves and there’s no question that Google has done a terrific job so far of aping many of the best features from Mailbox and dumping them into a gorgeous interface with some great new features.

Inbox is an early beta and it still has a long way to go before it can be considered a complete email solution, and for the time being it only works with personal Gmail accounts. Also, the service is accessible only by invite, though invitations are fairly easy to come by (go here and click the link in the top right corner to request an invite).

Are you looking for a similar solution that’s even more comprehensive and works with a wider range of email services? We might have just the app you’re searching for. More →

2011 MacBook Pro Discrete Graphics Card Failure

Hey Apple, it’s time you acknowledged and solved your MacBook Pro problem

Hey Apple, it’s time you acknowledged and solved your MacBook Pro problem

By about 4 hours ago.

I am writing these words on a MacBook Pro. There are many like it, but this Mac is mine. My MacBook is the tool I use most in my life. My MacBook, without me, is useless. Without my MacBook, I am useless. I have learned all about its weaknesses, its strengths, its features and its accessories. I think I have mastered it, and managed to fix various issues to help keep it usable even though it’s an older machine — I even saved it from what could have been a fatal coffee incident, I swapped out the RAM and I replaced the hard drive with an SSD to speed it up.

But thankfully, I never had to deal with a major issue that Apple will not acknowledge and isn’t willing to fix, and which I certainly wouldn’t be able to repair on my own. More →

Apple App Store Porn App

Why did Apple email porn to this man?

Why did Apple email porn to this man?

By about 4 hours ago.

Apple’s stance on porn in iOS apps is well-known, and such in-app content is likely to get an application rejected from the App Store until the developer addresses it. Even facilitating access to porn may be a good reason for Apple to prevent an application from reaching the App Store. In fact, a developer of one app that could offer users a way to access adult content has been contacted by Apple on the matter in an unexpected, explicit, and shocking way. More →

The gigantic iPad Pro will have significant competition

By about 6 hours ago.

Apple’s rumored 12.9-inch iPad model, referred to unofficially as the iPad Pro, is supposed to arrive at some point in 2015 according to certain reports, while others say the device is not considered “official” at Apple yet. Assuming Apple is going forward with iPad Pro plans, the gigantic tablet won’t be the only tablet to sport a bigger than 10-inch display next year. Digitimes has learned from Taiwan-based suppliers that several companies are working on large-size tablets supposed to launch next year in the first or second quarter. More →
