Periscope piracy plagues Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

Periscope piracy plagues Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

By about 29 mins ago.

Billed as the “fight of the century,” this weekend’s Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight was undoubtedly the biggest sports event of the weekend, an impressive feat given the ongoing NBA playoffs and Saturday’s Kentucky Derby.

While upwards of three million people ordered the pay per view event (at $100 a pop no less), many others were able to stream the site for free via Periscope, the Twitter-owned video streaming app. Indeed, users who opened up Periscope (or Meerkat) on Saturday night couldn’t ignore the myriad of available fight streams even if they wanted to.

Buying the Watch you want from Apple is now harder than ever

Buying the Watch you want from Apple is now harder than ever

By about 1 hour ago.

From the looks of it, buying an Apple Watch from Apple.com will not be an easy task in the near future either, at least unless you’re willing to wait quite a while for your chosen model to be shipped. As Redmond Pie noticed, all 42mm Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch models now have July shipping estimates when ordered from Apple’s U.S. and international online stores. More →

These might be the high-end Windows 10 phones you’ve been looking for

By about 2 hours ago.

Windows Phone fans tired to see Microsoft launching only entry-level to mid-range Windows handsets aren’t probably happy to hear that Windows 10 for phones won’t be launched at the same time with the desktop version. Since Windows 10 for phones will arrive later than expected, this also means that flagship Lumia handsets aren’t likely to launch just yet – at least Microsoft did say more than once that such devices are in the works.

By on May 1, 2015 at 8:30 PM.

What does your smartphone’s battery look like when it overheats? A little bit scary, as a new video posted by University College London shows. The video was posted as part of a project being conducted by UCL Chemical Engineering PhD student Donal Finegan  and Dr Paul Shearing, who are trying to understand more about the reasons that lithium-ion batteries fail. This is important because these batteries are increasingly being used not only in our phones but also in electric cars. More →

It’s amazing what a little competition can do. Ars Technica brings us word that Comcast will be bringing its 2Gbps fiber service to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Why is this significant, you ask? Because seven years ago Comcast sued Chattanooga in an attempt to block the city from building out its own 1Gbps fiber network. More →
