The difference between iPhone users and Android users
Both sides of the "iPhone vs. Android" argument are silly, but one seems to be worse than the other...
Dozens or even hundreds of paid iPhone and iPad apps go on sale for free every day, and we always try to select the best of the bunch to share with our readers. Today’s list might be the best one we’ve had in quite some time though. It’s packed full of well-made and well-reviewed iOS apps that are on sale for free for a limited time, so be sure to check them all out before these sales are over. Of note, one of the apps we listed is a killer Instagram tool that normally sells for $28! More →
Devices like the Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV box are fantastic ways to make a wide range of streaming content available on your TV, but they’re also pretty pricey. If you want an Apple TV you’re spending at least $150, and Amazon’s Fire TV starts at $90. Those are decent prices, but you can get a complete streaming experience for much less than that. Amazon’s All-New Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote has now been released, offering a ton of features and even better performance for the same insanely low price. More →

AMC’s massive trolling came to an end and we finally know who Negan killed as well as exactly how he did it. Just in case you still haven’t seen the first episode of season 7, be warned, major spoilers follow below, as we’re about to tell you what Negan’s victim had to say about the whole ordeal. More →
Niantic is on a roll. After failing to provide many significant post-launch updates following the launch of Pokemon Go, the team appears to have settled into a groove lately, adding new features, improving gym training and unveiling the first official in-game event (which starts tomorrow and runs through Halloween).
But there’s still one feature that has been suspiciously missing from Pokemon Go since launch: incentives to log in and play the game on a daily basis. Daily rewards are a staple of free-to-play games, but up to now, they haven’t made their way to one of the App Store’s most profitable games. Thankfully, that’s about to change.
Just over three months ago, I was having a casual conversation with an acquaintance about a few rumors surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 7. At the time, Samsung’s sixth-generation phablet was one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of the summer. He knew what I did for a living and asked if I had heard anything about the new phone that hadn’t already been reported, and I told him about some display and design improvements I had caught wind of that were in the works, as well as a few new software features that hadn’t yet been revealed in leaks.
Then, the conversation took an interesting turn that ended up sending me on a three-month mission. More →
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 has gone up in smoke, both figuratively and literally, leaving a huge void in the smartphone market this holiday season. After years of following the same release pattern, Samsung has trained consumers to expect a new Note series smartphone each fall. New Notes always feature the latest and greatest specs, including jaw-dropping Super AMOLED displays and a suite of software features that make use of the S Pen stylus. This year, however, a new Note smartphone is nowhere to be found.
Some smartphone shoppers will turn to Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus since there are no new Samsung flagships to be found. Others will opt for Google’s Pixel or Pixel XL, or perhaps for a rival smartphone from another Android phone vendor. But not everyone is willing to bail on Samsung and all of the class-leading features its smartphones offer, so many people are waiting for the next-generation Galaxy S8 to arrive before upgrading to a new handset. Well, we have some bad news… More →
Today’s post covering Amazon’s best daily deals is packed full of bargains on a wide range of products, including a number of items that have never appeared on the site before. Some highlights include a killer price on one of the most stunning wide-screen edgeless PC monitors you’ve ever seen, a 55-inch 4K TV from LG for just $650, a great next-generation Echo Dot bundle, a top-rated home theater projector, sleek over-ear Bluetooth headphones for just $18, 20% off a wireless DualShock 4 controller for the PS 4, the smallest Bluetooth headset in the world, and much more.

Samsung is still picking itself up after the Galaxy Note 7 disaster, which has seemingly affected its Galaxy S8 production schedule as well, at least according to some reports. Even so, the phone is still expected to make its debut in late February and a new round of rumors reveals more purported details about Samsung’s next big thing. More →
Although Rogue One could very well be a great film and worthwhile entry into the Star Wars canon, its most important job is to tide fans over until Star Wars: Episode VIII premieres in 2017. Based on what we’ve seen from the trailers, it’s got a pretty good chance of doing that, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from voraciously searching for any clues they can find about the future of the main series.
Remember last week when Samsung was hit with a class action lawsuit over “economic injuries” resulting from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco? At the time we told you it would be the first of many suits filed as a result of Samsung’s defective Note 7 and the company’s mishandling of the ensuing global recall(s). More lawsuits are indeed inevitable, and now the biggest class action lawsuit so far has been filed in Samsung’s home country. What’s more, the new suit coincides with increased pressure from analysts advising shareholder to vote against approving Samsung Vice Chairman and heir apparent Jay Y. Lee’s seat on the board. More →
Power outages always seem to happen at the worst possible time. Maybe you’re in the middle of work, or maybe you’re relaxing and streaming a movie on Netflix. Whatever the case, all your connections come to a grinding halt and anything that needs to be plugged in to operate dies. You could drop thousands and thousands of dollars on a big generator, but it seems a little silly considering how infrequently most people lose power. Here’s another option: Pick up a CyberPower UPS Mini Tower, which ranges in size from 510 watts to 900 watts and is shockingly affordable on Amazon. More →
Next year, Apple will come out with an iPhone design that will be unlike any iPhone the company made to date. That is if current reports are accurate. The iPhone 8 should have an all-screen design, complete with a virtual home button that will replace the iconic physical home button, and an OLED screen. The display may be curved, in which case the side buttons could also disappear. Some people expect Apple to move from metal to ceramic for the phone’s exterior shell, although Apple surely can’t manufacture ceramic cases to meet actual iPhone demand. Moreover, the wildest iPhone 8 rumor yet says Apple will launch a clear all-screen iPhone next year.
But until that happens, there’s already a company that came out with a smartphone concept that looks very much like an iPhone 8 prequel, one that you’ll be able to buy in November for just over $500. More →
