An engineer has come up with a brilliant new cooler design that beer lovers will adore

By about 8 hours ago.

With summer less than two months away, you’re probably thinking about going on some fun outdoor excursions that involve taking some beer with you in a cooler. However, the current coolers on the market are something of a bummer since they tend to be both heavy and unwieldy. Denver-based engineer Scotty Allen is trying to change all that, however, with a brilliant new cooler design that will make bringing beer along with you to picnics and hikes easier than ever before.

Comcast and TWC lit $32 million on fire lobbying the government to pass their merger

By about 10 hours ago.

This will be heartbreaking for many of you to hear, but it seems that Comcast and Time Warner Cable spent a total of $32 million lobbying the government to sign off on their merger and they still didn’t get what they wanted. In a big Politico report called “Collapse of Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger shows limits of lobbying,” we learn that Comcast and TWC pulled out all the stops to get their merger approved but that it still wasn’t enough.

Groupon Security

Why Groupon refused to pay a security researcher who discovered serious XSS bugs

Why Groupon refused to pay a security researcher who discovered serious XSS bugs

By on April 24, 2015 at 8:15 PM.

It’s very common these days for tech companies Google and Microsoft to offer hackers and security researchers big bucks if they’re able to find security vulnerabilities that could pose serious threats to important software and services. Google in particular often hosts its own hacking competition where the search giant puts millions of dollars on the line for anyone savvy enough to skirt around Google’s built-in security schemes.

Recently, one security researcher found a number of high-level vulnerabilities on Groupon’s website. Groupon promptly patched the security holes but, as it turns out, is refusing to pay him.

Here’s why.

Apple Watch bands can be easily damaged like any other watch bands, but don’t freak out about it

By on April 24, 2015 at 7:00 PM.

Apple’s Watch is, at the end of the day, a product that will suffer damages including standard wear and tear. So don’t expect it to be any differently than regular watches from that point of view — and that goes double for the watch’s bands, including the Sport fluoroelastomer and Leather bands, according to pictures posted by 9to5Mac.

The secret ordeals Apple puts developers through so they can make amazing Watch apps

By on April 24, 2015 at 5:30 PM.

App developers are Apple’s secret MVPs. Without applications, the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch would be immensely boring devices. Apple knows this, and that’s why it always tries to outshine the competition when it comes to app availability for its products, including the newly launched Apple Watch. More →

How Durable Is The Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is much more durable than you think

The Apple Watch is much more durable than you think

By on April 24, 2015 at 4:16 PM.

Writing for iMore, Greg Koenig provides a fascinating and thorough look into the build quality of the recently released Apple Watch. As anyone who has ever seen an Apple product unveiling can attest, Apple takes a tremendous amount of pride in the materials it uses and the processes it employs to create its products. Indeed, some of Apple’s innovations extend beyond consumer electronics to include advanced manufacturing techniques as well.

All that said, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the build quality and durability on the Apple Watch is quite high. Regarding the Apple Watch Sport collection, presumably poised to be the most popular, Koenig writes that Apple opted to go with a 7000 series aluminum alloy, resulting in an extremely hard casing that should make it extremely difficult for users to scratch, dent, or even scuff up even with heavy use.

Here are the horrifying damages your Apple Watch warranty will cover

By on April 24, 2015 at 3:30 PM.

Sure, the Apple Watch has amazing build quality, and any version seems to be sturdy enough to withstand plenty of accidents including drops, scratches and dunks in water to name just a few. But the device is not indestructible, and some people have already started putting it through various torture tests to gauge its resistance. In other words, any Apple Watch model is susceptible to accidental damage, and Apple already knows what it will and won’t cover under the standard and extended warranty programs. More →

After spending a good amount of time with my new Apple Watch, I have not been able to find the one defining feature that would make it a must-have device for everyone. In fact, I couldn’t even explain to some of my friends why it made sense for me to buy the device. All that said, I am starting to see what this tiny device could bring me: More free time.
