Apple touts the iPhone 7 camera in new ‘Romeo and Juliet’ themed commercial

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.

Demand for VR headsets has been surprisingly disappointing

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’s new Trusted Contacts app tells you where everyone is

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.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 7 Recap

The Walking Dead episode 7: The one that could have been great, but nah

The Walking Dead episode 7: The one that could have been great, but nah

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 →

Microsoft Amazon Echo Competitor

No one is going to use Microsoft’s answer to the Amazon Echo

No one is going to use Microsoft’s answer to the Amazon Echo

The Amazon Echo, a $200 device that sits on your kitchen counter and silently judges everything you say, has been a surprise hit with consumers. Google has rushed its own version to market, Apple is said to be working on something similar, and now it looks like Microsoft is going to half-heartedly join the fray.

According to Windows Central, Microsoft is working on an update that will give any Windows PC the always-listening, schedule planning, home-controlling capabilities of Echo and Alexa. It sounds like a nice idea on paper, but in the real world, I guarantee it will suck.

Scientists just figured out how much all of mankind’s crap actually weighs

We often hear about how much humanity’s technological creations, infrastructure, and existence affects the environment and the world as a whole, but trying to gauge how much everything man has ever created actually weighs sounds like an impossible task. A new paper published in The Anthropocene Review attempts to answer that very question, and the resulting number is just as absurd as you’re probably guessing.

EU slams US tech giants on hate speech

The European Commission has slammed tech titans Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft, saying that they are not moving quickly enough to deal with online hate speech.

In late May, Silicon Valley giants agreed in a “Code of Conduct” to keep tackling illegal hate speech on their platforms. As part of that code of conduct, a goal was set of reviewing most notifications of illegal hate speech and dealing with them within 24 hours. According to a new report, set to be presented and discussed in Europe on Wednesday and Thursday, tech companies are only meeting that 24-hour goal 40 percent of the time.

App Store developers say app refunds are being abused, and Apple isn’t helping

As part of its App Store policy, Apple can choose to give refunds to customers who are unsatisfied with an app they download. It’s a good, common-sense move, and a valuable tool for anyone who’s ever read a description, downloaded the app, and then wondered if they’re even using the same piece of software.

But according to some developers, customers are abusing the refund policy to get free games, and Apple is turning a blind eye to the practice.

Lexus covered a car in 42,000 LEDs and it’ll make you drool

Every car company has to do its best to strike a balance between tasteful design and eye-catching originality. That is, unless you’re Lexus, and can do whatever the hell you want, like slapping nearly 42,000 color-changing LED lights to the exterior of one of your hottest cars, just because you feel like it.

The Lexus LIT IS — yes, the company actually decided to go with “LIT” for the car’s name, because it doesn’t care what you think — is a 2017 Lexus IS that has gone through a jaw-dropping makeover. Lexus says it was created “to provoke — more than ever,” and if that was the mission, then it’s safe to say it’s accomplished it.

iPhone 8 Rumors: OLED vs. LCD

Forget the OLED iPhone 8, the LCD screen might be making a comeback

Forget the OLED iPhone 8, the LCD screen might be making a comeback

The iPhone 8 will bring us what will probably be Apple’s biggest screen upgrade since the introduction of the retina display: an OLED screen that should offer users an even better iPhone experience. However, only one of the three iPhone 8 units expected next year will ship with an OLED display. OLED technology has reached a point where it’s affordable to use on the iPhone, a move Apple kept postponing due to cost and supply concerns. But screen supply won’t be able to meet Apple’s requirements, and two iPhone 8 versions will launch with LCD displays.
