This is how Samsung plans to counter Apple’s big Beats move

By about 27 mins ago.

Over the past couple of weeks, Samsung has been publishing videos on its YouTube channel highlighting some of the unique features of the new headphones. More →

Netflix CEO on Net Neutrality

Netflix rails against ISPs even as it agrees to pay off yet another one for better connections

Netflix rails against ISPs even as it agrees to pay off yet another one for better connections

By about 1 hour ago.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Tuesday penned an editorial in Wired in which he defended the free Internet and advocated against the FCC’s Net Neutrality proposals, as well as against the Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. But even though Hastings is not afraid to vividly voice his concerns – this isn’t the first time he’s written an editorial on these matters – Netflix was apparently forced to ink its fourth interconnect deal in the U.S. to make sure that TWC broadband subscribers who watch Netflix online get a decent experience.

An ode to turn-by-turn navigation: Making ‘lost’ a foreign concept

An ode to turn-by-turn navigation: Making ‘lost’ a foreign concept

By about 2 hours ago.

Last week, I drove for 11 hours in a vehicle during a single calendar day. I decided to take such an endeavor the evening before, and all told, it took around five minutes to scope out the plan. The morning of, I settled into the adequately posh driver’s seat of a trusty rental car, tossed my iPhone into a Kenu Airframe mount, tapped a few screens, and threw it in drive.

And I knew that absolutely everything was going to be just fine. More →

iPad Air 2 Specs 2GB RAM

Great news: The next-gen iPad Air might not have miserably wimpy RAM

Great news: The next-gen iPad Air might not have miserably wimpy RAM

By about 2 hours ago.

Specs certainly aren’t everything, but Apple fans should still be relieved to know that the next-generation iPad Air will feature a memory boost up from the 1GB of RAM the first-generation model had. Per MacRumors, Taiwanese publication TechNews is reporting that Apple’s followup to the iPad Air will feature a full 2GB of RAM, which just happens to be the same amount of memory that came with Google’s last Nexus 7 tablet when it was announced more than a year ago.

Google may be working on a version of Glass that you might actually wear

By about 3 hours ago.

Google Glass is far from being a ready-for-primetime commercial product, and the wearable device may undergo several changes before it’s sold in stores. In fact, it appears Google is trying to make Google Glass look less like it currently does – something some people wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing – and more like an actual pair of ordinary glasses. Glass Almanac discovered a patent for a new Google Glass design that makes the gadget more human-friendly. More →

Why Is Comcast So Bad

The most brutal Comcast call yet: Customer gets shuffled through 6 reps, issue remains unfixed

The most brutal Comcast call yet: Customer gets shuffled through 6 reps, issue remains unfixed

By about 3 hours ago.

If you thought Ryan Block had a rough time with Comcast customer service then you haven’t seen anything yet. Taking an example from others who have recorded their terrible Comcast customer service experiences and posted them on the Internet, YouTube user Douglas A. Dixon has posted a customer service call that lasted a brutal one-and-a-half hours in which he was shuffled through a whopping six different customer service representatives, none of whom knew how to solve his problem.

iPhone Jailbreak Malware App

Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

By about 4 hours ago.

The malware protection that comes with Apple’s walled-off garden is only so good as long as you stay in that confined space, as otherwise hackers will be able to attack you with malicious programs. Specifically, jailbroken iPhones, which can install any iOS app whether it’s approved by Apple or not, are obviously susceptible to malware attacks, and a Virus Bulletin advisory notice details one such malicious program that has infected at least 75,000 iOS devices to date.

This is what the iPhone 6 might look like compared to Samsung’s iPhone 6 ‘killer’

By about 4 hours ago.

Samsung has now officially unveiled the Galaxy Alpha, its almost-high-end Android handset meant to “kill” the iPhone 6 in the coming weeks. To celebrate this occasion, designer Martin Hajek, who has come up with a variety of iPhone 6 renders based on the latest rumors and leaks, has now imagined a visual comparison between the Galaxy Alpha and the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6.

Verizon App Store Vs. Google Play

Why can’t carriers just accept we want them to be ‘dumb pipes?’

Why can’t carriers just accept we want them to be ‘dumb pipes?’

By about 5 hours ago.

I’ve been a Verizon subscriber for years now, even though I’ve long suspected that they don’t think much of their customers’ intelligence. However, when I read today that Verizon is thinking of actually trying to create a rival app store to compete with Google Play, I realized that Verizon doesn’t just think we’re stupid, it thinks we’re the kid who made himself sick in kindergarden every day by gorging himself on paste.

Android L Update Schedule

Here’s how to make sure you get Android L before everyone else

Here’s how to make sure you get Android L before everyone else

By about 5 hours ago.

Google has recently published its Android distribution numbers for early August in which it revealed that KitKat has reached almost 21% market share of all Android phones now in use. While that’s an important milestone for Google, the road was rather long and tedious, as software updates still depend on OEMs and carriers. The same thing will likely happen with Android L adoption as well and Android fans looking to buy a new Android handset should check out Ars Technica’s massive guide on the state of the Android ecosystem and Android updates in the U.S. that reveals “who’s fast, who’s slow, and why.” More →

The funniest thing you’ll see all day: Pierce Brosnan plays GoldenEye on the N64 with Jimmy Fallon

By about 6 hours ago.

Before Halo, before Call of Duty, there was one first-person shooter that could bring people together just as easily as it could tear friendships apart. One game could be the focal point of a 10-year-old’s birthday party or a pregame at a college dorm. That game was GoldenEye. The movie-licensed Nintendo 64 classic set the stage for console shooters for generations to come and still holds some cultural relevance nearly 20 years later. More →

Verizon still thinks you’re stupid

By about 6 hours ago.

One of the most difficult parts of getting a new phone is deciding which of the preinstalled bloatware apps might actually serve a purpose at some point in the future and which of the apps to delete. Android is most notorious for this practice, but we all have software on our phones that doesn’t belong there, which makes this report from The Information all the more baffling. More →
