New videos get up close and personal with the iPhone 7 like never before
These are the high-quality hands-on videos you've been waiting for...
“[A] common belief is that phone performance can only be improved in two ways, either using a faster processor or increasing the RAM.”
You may think that’s a quote from Apple, perhaps the introduction of an explanation of why the iPhone regularly bests Android flagships in performance despite having specs that never seem to measure up on paper. But you’d be wrong. That’s how Samsung starts a new video intended to explain that mid-range devices can be very powerful without sporting high-end specs. This only begs the question: If Samsung can pull off amazing performance without bumping up processor speed or adding more RAM, why does it keep doing that with every new Galaxy S and Galaxy Note model it launches?

Although Batman v Superman stole the negative spotlight this summer, comic book fans weren’t all that enthused with X-Men: Apocalypse either. That’s not to say that critics and fans alike didn’t have anything nice to say about the movie, but it certainly wasn’t the critical reaction 20th Century Fox was hoping for.
So what could the studio have done to fix the highly anticipated sequel?

Future Galactic President Trump is currently hosting an Ask Me Anything on Reddit. Once the preserve of celebrities trying to schill their new movie, Reddit AMAs are seemingly a rite of passage for internet-concious public figures, with President Obama famously using the site to help get re-elected.
This AMA is promising to go a little differently, though. It’s being hosted on /r/The_Donald, a rabidly pro-Trump subreddit that doesn’t really allow dissent of the great and glorious leader.
An event that reportedly happens an average of 23 times annually has been caught on camera in a dramatic video: lighting zapping the Empire State Building.
The short clip— aptly titled “Boom!”– has racked up over 1.2 million views on YouTube since it was first uploaded on Monday. After six or so seconds, the video shows a jagged line of lightning striking the iconic structure. “I got that,” a voice says, just as thunder rolls.
You probably don’t even remember at this point, but Google completely changed the game when it introduced free unlimited voice-guided navigation on smartphones. Gone were the days of dedicated devices that required you to pay for map updates and then pay even more for live traffic info. Of course, smartphone navigation often isn’t a perfect solution either — you can burn through your data plan and your battery life as well. Thankfully, the popularity of smartphone navigation apps has caused prices of dedicated navigators to plummet.
Take this current Amazon sale, for example. From now until the end of the day on Saturday, July 30, you can get a TomTom VIA 1535TM 5-Inch Bluetooth GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic & Maps and Voice Recognition for just $90 shipped. More →
Reddit, the self-proclaimed “front page of the internet,” is a stupendously popular online community. It also makes very little money, despite that user base. So in an effort to do a Facebook and turn karma into money, the site is going to start allowing companies to sponsor user-submitted posts.
In an interview with AdAge, Reddit cofounder Steve Huffman confirmed that starting on August 4th, Reddit will debut a new type of ad called Promoted User Posts.
Anything called a “Gigafactory” being built in the Nevada desert was always going to be big. (There’s no other reason to build something in the Nevada desert, for one.) But a new behind-the-scenes video from Wired shows the speed and ambition that Tesla is applying to building
Elon Musk’s new supervillain lair the factory where the Model 3 will be made.
The Gigafactory is under construction in Sparks, Nevada. When it’s finished, it will be the biggest building in the world by footprint, and will churn out batteries for 500,000 Model 3s per year. But first, Tesla needs four walls and a roof.
The Galaxy Note 7 is going to be unveiled in a few days, and Samsung’s next-gen phablet — what will likely become the best performing Android device of the year — will finally be official. However, most leaks so far have suggested the phone will come in a single curved “edge” flavor, which isn’t necessarily good news for everyone. More →
When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone back in 2007, the Apple co-founder laid out a rather modest goal for the company’s revolutionary smartphone — to sell 1 million units. At the time, 1 million in unit sales represented approximately 1% of the global smartphone market. And not only did Apple reach that goal with ease, it quickly became apparent that the iPhone itself was a juggernaut, a once-in-a-lifetime product that would forever change the way we interact with technology.
With each passing quarter, iPhone sales continued to skyrocket. Indeed, it wasn’t until the company’s March 2016 quarter that iPhone sales would experience their first year-over-year sales decline. That said, Apple last week reached an impressive new milestone — 1 billion iPhones sold.
I spend a significant portion of my day swapping between messaging apps: Slack for work, Facebook Messenger for friends in the US and WhatsApp for friends abroad. It can be frustrating at times, but at this point, it’s simply part of my routine. But what if it didn’t have to be? What if I could have them all in one place?
Introducing: All-in-One Messenger.
Suicide Squad is hopefully going to be one of the best movies from the DC Comics cinematic universe, a story about a team of anti-heroes assembled by the US government to take part in a crucial suicide mission. We’ve already seen a variety of trailers featuring some of the most dangerous members of this squad, so we know what kind of characters to expect. But what if Quentin Tarantino made Suicide Squad? Would we have the same villains in this deadly team? Would they even stick to a DC Comics script? Would it somehow be even bloodier?
