By about 4 hours ago.

Earlier this month we brought you word of a secret diagnostic port on the Apple Watch that’s intended for Apple’s own internal use. However, that hasn’t stopped accessories manufacturers from designing their own Apple Watch straps designed specifically to take advantage of this unlisted six-pin port. Via AppleInsider, the team at Reserve Strap have spent some time designing a watch strap that fits into the port and now they’ve posted a video showing how the port can be used to charge the Apple Watch slightly more quickly than through Apple’s own inductive charging method.

Did Google just accidentally reveal Android M’s full name?

By about 7 hours ago.

Google unveiled Android M on Thursday, but we know from history that this won’t be the platform’s final name — instead, it’s going to be named after some kind of delicious dessert.

Their conclusion? The next version of Android will be called “Android Milkshake.” More →

By about 7 hours ago.

Games with Gold is back for another month of free games, and I can’t believe that Pool Nation FX is taking up a slot on the Xbox One side for the third consecutive month. There must be other Xbox One developers who want their games highlighted on Games with Gold. Pool Nation FX is a great game – the best pool simulator I’ve ever played – but three months is mind-boggling.

Tinder and other dating apps cause STD rates to skyrocket, new health report claims

By about 8 hours ago.

In a number of ways, the dating game today is easier than it’s ever been. Thanks to mobile apps like Tinder, Hinge, Grindr, and OK Cupid — just to name a few — the ability to connect with potential romantic partners has never been more convenient. At the same time, there may be a downside to all of this meeting and greeting.

According to a new health report from the Rhode Island Department of Health, the state saw a tremendous increase in the overall number of new STD cases, a phenomenon that may very well be attributable to the increasing popularity of dating apps.
