Your move, Microsoft
Just two months ago, Apple and Samsung took their epic legal battle to the U.S. Supreme Court where the two companies fought over the exact amount Samsung would ultimately have to pay Apple for patent infringement.
Before the proceedings began, Samsung was on the hook for $548 million, of which $399 million was in dispute. In other words, Samsung was always, at the very least, going to pay Apple $149 million.
Things are really starting to heat up on Amazon now that Christmas shopping is getting down to the wire, and we’re seeing some deals you’re really not going to want to miss. Highlights from today’s list of Amazon’s top daily deals include the return of one of the retailer’s best Black Friday sales on a 4K TV, more than $200 off a gorgeous media center to go with that new TV, $79 off one of the fastest Linksys routers in the world, an awesome BGR recommended 3D printer for under $300, a discounted space pen (!), two different Apple Watch models on sale, and four different pairs of sweat-proof wireless headphones. For those deals and more, check out our full list below. More →
After retooling the series in 2014 with a brand new cast and a grittier, darker tone, Michael Bay is pushing Transformers to its limits with his fifth and final entry in the franchise. Based on the trailer, Transformers: The Last Knight will be by far the darkest movie of the pentalogy, with Optimus Prime turning evil.
How many things do you own and use on a regular basis that need to be charged? Five? Fifteen? Twenty-five? Why add one more to the list when you don’t need to? Wireless keyboards are terrific because you can move around with ease and pair them with multiple devices without having to fuss with any wires. Of course, the convenience of a wire-free typing experience is somewhat diminished if you’re in the middle of working and your keyboard battery dies. Check out the Logitech Wireless Solar Desktop Keyboard K750, which is charged constantly by any light source in the room so it never needs to be plugged in or have the batteries changed. More →
Google began rolling out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for its mobile devices this week, including the brand new Pixel phones and several of the older Nexus smartphones. The best thing about it? Nexus fans will finally get access to some of the new Nougat goodies that were restricted to Pixel phones until now. More →
As busy as the past month has been for Pokemon Go, the biggest updates are yet to come. A little over two weeks ago, an internal memo purported to have gone out to Starbucks managers mentioned an upcoming event that would see the coffee chain collaborate with Niantic for the launch of Pokemon Go “version 2.”
We still don’t know what “version 2” was referring to, but the timing of the memo’s leak lined up suspiciously well with the addition of 100 new Pokemon in the code of Pokemon Go. Could “version 2” be the launch of Generation 2?
If you’re taking to the skies to visit family or friends this month, you better hope you’re flying Delta. That’s according to a report on Forbes that estimates the number of on-time flights by scraping data from holiday flights over the past three years.
Using flight arrival and departure times logged by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Forbes crunched the numbers to come up with the percentage of flights for each of the ten largest U.S. carriers, and there’s a surprising contrast among them. Here’s the list, ordered by the percent of on-time flights from highest to lowest:

Apple earlier today released a new ad for the iPhone 7 highlighting the device’s superior camera technology. Titled “Romeo and Juliet”, the ad features two children performing the play of the same name. The ad begins with one of the more famous scenes from the play and is shot in such a way as to seems like a legit Hollywood production.
The big reveal, of course, is that the seemingly professional cinematography was achieved using only an iPhone 7 and is, in fact, nothing more than your run of the mill school play.
Despite an avalanche of hype and a marked increase in advertising, new retail data suggests that demand for virtual reality and augmented reality products hasn’t been as high as many initially anticipated. Though demand was expected to be strong throughout 2016, and particularly during the holiday shopping season, Digitimes reports that demand has “been weakening recently.”
Google just released an all-new app aimed at giving you some peace of mind when potentially dangerous situations arise either for yourself or for your loved ones. It’s called Trusted Contacts, and its aim is to ensure that you always know when your friends and family are safe and sound, and vice versa.
After you install the app, you can pick as many contacts as you want to add to your “trusted” list. Anyone who you label as trusted will be able to see vague but useful updates on your recent activity, such as whether or not you’ve used your computer or traveled at all.
People are saying that AMC’s top zombie show isn’t what it used to be, and I largely agree. After that brutal premiere, we got a couple of okay episodes and then a couple of disappointing ones. The Walking Dead’s episode 6 picked up the pace but only focused on Tara’s adventures. Maybe too much. Which makes episode 7, which aired last night, too crowded. It’s also an episode that could have been great, but AMC writers didn’t go for the kill. Beware, major spoilers follow. More →
