iPhone 6 Plus Bendgate Design Fix

Has Apple quietly fixed its iPhone 6 Plus ‘Bendgate’ problem?

Has Apple quietly fixed its iPhone 6 Plus ‘Bendgate’ problem?

Ignoring the idiotic instances where people intentionally started bending iPhone 6 units in stores just to prove it can be done, Apple did have an iPhone 6 Bendgate problem, which genuinely affected some early buyers. Early reports have shown that the iPhone 6 Plus was more prone to bending than its smaller sibling, with some users explaining why the iPhone 6 Plus can bend in a certain way — apparently the area around the bottom volume button lacks the kind of reinforcement that can prevent bending. However, Apple might have fixed the issue, one Reddit user seems to indicate. More →

The entire history of Apple products captured in one fantastic poster

When you think of Apple in 2014, the first device that comes to mind is probably the iPhone. Few products have had as much of a cultural impact as Apple’s smartphone, but the iPhone is just one branch of Apple’s prolific history. Pop Chart Lab recently released the third edition of its “Insanely Great History of Apple” poster, featuring over 500 Apple releases, from the Dot Matrix Printer to the iPad Air 2. More →

iPhone fans are trashing Apple Pay rival CurrentC in App Store reviews – here are the funniest ones

MCX may claim that its CurrentC mobile payment platform is a bold challenge to the mobile payments status quo but its target audience isn’t seeing it that way so far. In fact, it looks that like as Android fans have done, iPhone fans have also taken to trashing CurrentC on their favorite platform’s app store and are often doing so in rather humorous ways. More →

Tim Cook Comes Out Reactions

Here is the most idiotic reaction to Tim Cook coming out as gay

When Tim Cook came out as gay on Thursday, the reaction from fellow tech leaders and from most politicians was largely positive. We knew that not everyone would react this way, however, and sure enough The Washington Post has cataloged some of the more idiotic reactions to Cook coming out. While some of the reactions were fairly predictable — really, who didn’t think the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer would say something stupid? — the most boneheaded reaction so far actually comes to us from Vitaly Milonov, a Russian member of parliament who wants Cook banned from entering his country for life.

Steve Wozniak Seth Rogen Cast

Aaron Sorkin may have found the perfect person to play Steve Wozniak

Aaron Sorkin may have found the perfect person to play Steve Wozniak

Do you imagine Steve Wozniak smoked a lot of pot and made a lot of penis jokes in his youth? If so then you’ll think the casting choice for Woz’s role in Aaron Sorkin’s new Steve Jobs biopic is absolutely perfect. According to Variety, none other than Seth Rogen has been tapped to play Wozniak in the upcoming film, which we think is an inspired choice for the brilliant and often very amusing Apple cofounder. Christian Bale, who is best known for playing Batman in Gary Nolan’s highly acclaimed trilogy, will play opposite Rogen as Steve Jobs.  More →

The latest Call of Duty trailer brings Advanced Warfare to the real world

Next week, one of the most popular video game franchises of the past decade will return with its latest entry, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It’s fair to say that the buzz has died down slightly from the record-breaking days of Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2, but Activision has a great deal of faith in Sledgehammer Games, the recently minted developer which has yet to release a full game.

On Wednesday night, Anita Sarkeesian, creator of feminist video game critique “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games,” stopped by The Colbert Report to discuss the Gamergate movement.

Apple Pay vs. MCX CurrentC: Meijer

One MCX member will bravely allow Apple Pay in its stores

The Apple Pay vs. MCX’s CurrentC war has been one of the highlights of the week, with MCX having to defend its position against Apple Pay and in favor of its own smartphones payments solution that will launch next year and will be available via its CurrentC app. MCX members, including Walmart, Best Buy, Target, CVS, Gap and many others must exclusively support CurrentC in stores, reports revealed, suggesting that a fine is involved if this contract requirement is broken. MCX sort-of denied the fines, saying there are no fines for anyone wishing to leave the MCX group. And it looks like at least one retailer wants to put this claim to the test by supporting both CurrentC and Apple Pay. More →
