Even this dedicated Samsung fan is completely fed up with TouchWiz

By about 1 hour ago.

If there’s one thing that annoys Android fans more than fragmentation, it’s TouchWiz, the UI overlay used in Samsung Android phones that is often blamed for slow, laggy performance on those devices. Now even one writer at Samsung fan site SamMobile has completely had it with TouchWiz and has penned a scathing diatribe against the company’s little-loved UI. More →

Has Apple quietly fixed its iPhone 6 Plus ‘Bendgate’ problem?

Has Apple quietly fixed its iPhone 6 Plus ‘Bendgate’ problem?

By about 2 hours ago.

Ignoring the idiotic instances where people intentionally started bending iPhone 6 units in stores just to prove it can be done, Apple did have an iPhone 6 Bendgate problem, which genuinely affected some early buyers. Early reports have shown that the iPhone 6 Plus was more prone to bending than its smaller sibling, with some users explaining why the iPhone 6 Plus can bend in a certain way — apparently the area around the bottom volume button lacks the kind of reinforcement that can prevent bending. However, Apple might have fixed the issue, one Reddit user seems to indicate. More →

When you think of Apple in 2014, the first device that comes to mind is probably the iPhone.

By about 4 hours ago.

MCX may claim that its CurrentC mobile payment platform is a bold challenge to the mobile payments status quo but its target audience isn’t seeing it that way so far.

Tim Cook Comes Out Reactions

Here is the most idiotic reaction to Tim Cook coming out as gay

By about 4 hours ago.

When Tim Cook came out as gay on Thursday, the reaction from fellow tech leaders and from most politicians was largely positive. We knew that not everyone would react this way, however, and sure enough The Washington Post has cataloged some of the more idiotic reactions to Cook coming out. While some of the reactions were fairly predictable — really, who didn’t think the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer would say something stupid? — the most boneheaded reaction so far actually comes to us from Vitaly Milonov, a Russian member of parliament who wants Cook banned from entering his country for life.
