Cord cutters’ dream come true: HBO is already pondering special discounted HBO Now plans

Cord cutters across the country knew they had turned a corner the moment HBO announced that it was finally placing some distance between itself and traditional pay TV with its new HBO Now service. With this new plan, households that chose not to subscribe to a pay TV service would still be able to access all of HBO’s content with a new streaming-only option. And the best part, perhaps, was that cord cutters knew HBO would be the first of several networks to offer streaming-only options to subscribers.

Though the service just launched a few months ago, it looks as though HBO is already considering yet another move that will make cord cutters happy: Special discounted prices. More →

Steve Wozniak calls Edward Snowden a ‘total hero’

When recently asked for his opinion about Edward Snowden, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had nothing but effusive praise for the controversial NSA whistleblower. In an interview with ArabianBusiness.com, Wozniak called Snowden a hero.

“Total hero to me; total hero,” Wozniak said. “Not necessarily [for] what he exposed, but the fact that he internally came from his own heart, his own belief in the United States Constitution, what democracy and freedom was about. And now a federal judge has said that NSA data collection was unconstitutional.”

Watch a crazy iOS bug cause iPhones to crash just by receiving a text message

A newly discovered and potentially worrisome iOS bug has been causing Phones to crash and automatically reboot when a certain string of characters is received via the Messages app. The string in question, which consists of both english and arabic characters, was first brought to light via a Reddit thread before being corroborated by MacRumors late on Wednesday evening.

“Sending the string of characters to an iPhone results in an immediate respring, causing an iPhone to crash and quickly reboot,” the report notes. “From there, if the Messages app was opened at a list view, the Messages app crashes automatically when you try to open it. If it was opened to the conversation where you received the message, the app will open, but attempting to go to another conversation causes Messages to crash.”

I never thought the new Mad Max game could live up to Fury Road… until I saw the amazing trailer

I finally saw Mad Max: Fury Road last night, and all I could think about while leaving the theater was how the hell Avalanche Studios thinks it’s going to make a game out of that.

…at least, until I saw the latest trailer.
