It’s almost a given that the iPhone 7 will ship without a 3.5mm headphone jack, but what still remains unclear is what type of headphones Apple plans to ship with each device. While the safe bet is to assume that Apple will ship a pair of Lightning headphones with every new iPhone, we have seem some speculation that Apple may flip the script and ship a pair of wireless headphone with each new device. To this point, it’s worth mentioning that Apple has shown an interest in securing a trademark for the name “AirPods.”
My guess is that if a wireless headphone solution is available, iPhone 7 users will have to pay a little bit extra for it. Removing the 3.5mm headphone jack is already a bold enough decision without additionally asking users to now delve into the world of wireless. That said, a new video recently surfaced which purports to show the Lightning headphones Apple may very well ship with its next-gen iPhone.
It’s the end of July 2016. It’s too hot to go outside because our planet is melting, a reality TV star is statistically likely to become the most powerful man in the world, and your best friend has become a zombie slave to a Pokemon game.

It’s too early to talk about Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S8 smartphone, especially now that the South Korean smartphone maker is getting ready to unveil the Galaxy Note 7. But a new report provides more details about what might be one of the processors that will power some of the best Android smartphones launching next year, including the Galaxy S8. More →
Kickstarter is a fantastic way to get brand-new technology for cheap. But apart from the risk of being scammed, it’s also quite unsatisfying. You pay your money, and a couple months later (if you’re lucky!), something comes in the mail. It’s the opposite of the two-day shipping satisfaction of Amazon Prime, in other words.
So Amazon is trying to fix the problem by adding a dedicated section on its site for buying Kickstarter products.
Cooking healthy and delicious meals at home may seem like a time-consuming endeavor, but it really isn’t. And Blue Apron is here to help: for a limited time, BGR readers can get three 2-person meals delivered to their doorstep for only $27. More →
From the moment that Marvel revealed its universe would extend to television, fans started wondering when we’d see the first inevitable crossover. Sadly, other than a few of the movie characters making their way on to Agents of SHIELD, we haven’t seen much cross-pollination between the movie and TV worlds.
During the Television Critics Association press tour this week, Marvel attempted to explain why we hadn’t (and likely wouldn’t) be seeing Daredevil, Jessica Jones or any of the other Netflix heroes in upcoming Marvel movies.
Vinyl albums have come back in a big way as people look to take a break from the crazy tech lurking around every corner and get back to the basics. Vinyl records offer a sound that simply can’t be imitated by digital audio, but you’ll obviously need to pick up an old school turntable if you want to get in on the action. You could spend a small fortune on a turntable, a receiver and speakers, or you could snag a delightfully retro 1byone Belt-Drive 3-Speed Portable Stereo Turntable with Built in Speakers on Amazon for just $69 shipped.

Despite his plans to nuke Mars, Elon Musk is definitely not a supervillain. Nope. And the factory he’s building in the desert, which bears an uncanny resemblance to Blofeld’s lair, is not a supervillain lair.
Don’t believe me? Well, you can watch Elon’s launch event live tonight, but really, there’s nothing to see.
Samsung is widely expected to launch a single Galaxy Note 7 version on August 2nd, a next-gen phablet with a curved “edge” display. A recent report suggested the curved edges would be toned down compared to the Galaxy S7 edge, but a new set of official renders suggests there’s not going to be a flat-screen version of the phone. However, that doesn’t mean such a phone doesn’t exist. An extensive 11-minute hands-on video previous of the flat Galaxy Note 7 was posted on YouTube proving the phone is indeed out there. More →
It’s no secret that car companies routinely buy (and tear apart) each other’s vehicles on a regular basis, either to gain intel or just for the sick pleasure of wanton destruction. So if Apple has two brand-new Model Xs sitting outside a building that’s been linked to its self-driving car division, that means Apple’s building a Model X competitor, right? Not so fast.
