An insane new iPhone 8 design that no one saw coming may have just been revealed
If this report is accurate, Apple will have no competition at all in 2017...
One of the reasons why HBO’s Last Week Tonight is so compelling is because it has a unique knack for taking a topic that most people don’t know much about and subsequently doing a great job of informing while also keeping the laughs coming.
During the most recent episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver and his writers set their sights on America’s opioid problem. From heroin overdoses to an increase in prescription pain killer related deaths, America’s ongoing struggle with opioids is a serious topic that doesn’t typically attract the level of attention it deserves. Thankfully, Oliver was in top form this weekend as he provided viewers with no shortage of interesting data about this growing epidemic.
The season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead was positively insane, exceedingly bloody and downright distressful. Before we get too much further into things, you should know that spoilers do lie ahead, so read along at your own risk. Sunday night’s episode was harrowing to say the least, with Negan showing himself to be epitome of pure evil.
By the time The Walking Dead premiere came to a close, the show’s landscaped looked markedly different, with both Abraham and Glenn falling victim to Negan’s deadly bat Lucille in a pair of scenes that many have opined were far too brutal and gory than they needed to be. There were, however, two touching moments in the show that you may not have caught the first go-around.
I used to think no computer scam would ever get more ridiculous than Nigerian princes. But as it turns out, human creativity does know bounds, which is why the deliciously titled “Official CIA Election AntiCheat Control” malware is doing the rounds.
Details of the program were exposed by the MalwareHunterTeam. Once installed, the malware closes down all your common processes and displays a big and scary message. It says that unless you send $50 in a PaySafeCard to the CIA/FBI (standard operating procedure for large intelligence organizations), the “reigstred name on your house adress election vote will not be valid.” I assume that made sense to someone, somewhere.
Tomorrow afternoon after the bell closes, Apple will post its earnings results for the recent September quarter. Because Apple’s fiscal year ends in September as opposed to December, tomorrow will not only give us a little bit of insight into how the iPhone 7 is doing, it will also provide us with a complete picture of Apple’s finances over the last year.
Interestingly, because Apple experienced two consecutive quarters of iPhone sales declines this year, 2016 will likely mark the first time in 15 years that Apple will report a year-over-year decline in annual revenue.

Tesla may have become a household name thanks to the tremendous success of the Model S, but the company’s ambition for automotive domination certainly don’t end there. In fact, the company’s product roadmap doesn’t even end with the upcoming Model 3. If all goes according to plan, and assuming that Tesla can manufacture enough Model 3 vehicles to meet staggering demand in a timely manner, the company hasn’t been shy about revealing what other types of vehicles it may manufacture in the future.
New data from IDC estimates that Apple shipped 1.1 million Apple Watches between June and September this year. That’s a lot of wrist ‘puters to sell, but it’s actually a 70 percent decrease in sales from the summer before.
You might think that falling sales figures is not a good thing for Apple, but there’s a few things in the IDC report to make the company feel better. Most notably, despite the drop in sales, Apple remains the biggest seller of smartwatches by a country mile.
10 years ago, Sega released Sonic the Hedgehog on PS3 and Xbox 360. It was an utter disaster, and in one fell swoop nearly killed the Sonic franchise for good. Since then a majority of Sega’s Sonic games have been poorly received, but some of the character’s most dedicated fans are taking matters into their own hands.
One of the more commonly held assumptions about Tesla is that the Model S absolutely owns the U.S. market for large luxury sedans. As we highlighted just last week, recently tabulated data revealed that the Model S moved an estimated 9,156 units last quarter, easily trouncing the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW’s 7-Series which each moved 4,921 and 3,634 units, respectively.
Swapping out your old HDD for a new SSD drive is one of the quickest and easiest ways to speed up the performance of an older PC, but now there’s an even newer option for computers and video game consoles. An SSHD, or solid state hybrid drive, takes the killer performance of a solid state drive and makes it fully compatible with HDD to create a high-capacity drive that’s still affordable. How affordable, you ask? Amazon just began carrying two new SSHDs from Seagate and you can grab one for as little as $70. More →
Flagship smartphones are insanely expensive these days. Consider this: today, our deals team included a brand new 2016 Samsung HDTV model with a curved 49-inch display in their roundup of Amazon’s best daily deals. Curved screens are the latest and greatest tech Samsung is touting in its TV lineup, and a 49-inch display is a great size. This model also smart features so it can run all of your favorite apps like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. Right now, this great TV from the world’s top TV brand is on sale for $510 — which is just over half of what Apple charges for a high-end iPhone 7 Plus.
But if you think the iPhone 7 Plus is expensive, you haven’t seen anything yet. More →
Were it not for the Galaxy Note 7 battery debacle, the battle between the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL might be the biggest smartphone story of the fall. Both phones feature top-of-the-line processors, smart software upgrades and arguably the best cameras every seen on the mobile market.
So while this battle might not get top billing, it’s still been entertaining to keep up with, and a video comparison from Btekt adds an interesting new wrinkle.
Famed billionaire and wannabe space cadet Elon Musk took to Reddit to do a surprise AMA yesterday. It was supposed to be a follow-up to SpaceX’s recent announcement about how it plans to return Elon Musk to his place of birth, and also create a permanent Mars colony along the way.
