Windows 9: One OS to rule all devices

Windows 9: One OS to rule all devices

By about 5 mins ago.

Unlike Apple, which thinks merging iOS and OS X would be a “waste of energy,” Microsoft wants one single Windows operating system to be available to all its device users, whether they’re Windows Phone handset owners, Xbox fans, or rely on a Windows computer for work or play. Business Insider reports that CEO Satya Nadella said on the company’s FQ4 earnings conference call that a future version of Windows will merge all current Windows versions, becoming an “operating system that covers all screen sizes.” More →

No one really cares about the Amazon Prime price increase

No one really cares about the Amazon Prime price increase

By about 34 mins ago.

When Amazon first announced the price increase from $79 to $99 for Prime memberships, everyone was up in arms. Looking back at the reaction of Amazon customers following the announcement, you might have thought we’d be in the middle of a worldwide boycott of Amazon Prime about now, but it appears that the fallout was much less eventful than many had predicted. On Wednesday, CIRP released a report which shows that even after the price increase, 95% of U.S. Prime members still indicate that they will either “probably” or “definitely” renew their membership when it runs out.

How to stop pesky Android apps from annoying you with notifications once and for all

How to stop pesky Android apps from annoying you with notifications once and for all

By about 1 hour ago.

Android’s notification system is without question the best in the business right now. It’s flexible and actionionable, providing a means for users to interact with notifications to save steps. For example, a user can archive or delete a new email in Gmail without ever having to open up the app. As great as Android’s notification system is, however, there are still plenty of apps that abuse it and pester users with annoying or useless notifications.

Thankfully, there is a remarkably simple way to stop annoying apps from bugging you with notifications. More →

Xbox One vs. PS4 Updates

The one way Xbox One is crushing PS4

The one way Xbox One is crushing PS4

By about 2 hours ago.

Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s early missteps to ensure that the PlayStation 4 would come out on top as the new console generation kicked off, but after being on the market for over half a year, one surprising disparity has begun to arise in the Xbox One’s favor. Despite a steady stream of updates on both consoles, the PS4 has gained very little in the way of new features while the Xbox One is loaded with functionality it didn’t have at launch. More →

BlackBerry Vs Android Vs iPhone

Here’s why many people want their BlackBerrys back after switching to iOS and Android

Here’s why many people want their BlackBerrys back after switching to iOS and Android

By about 3 hours ago.

Following the release of the original iPhone in 2007 and the subsequent launch of Android, many people with work-issued phones spent years asking for their employers to switch away from BlackBerry smartphones to more modern devices. Finally, as Apple and Google increased their focus on security and BlackBerry hit dire straights a few years ago, workers began getting what that wanted and bring your own device (BYOD) policies became more common.

More recently, however, an interesting trend is being observed: Workers want their BlackBerrys back. More →

iOS 8 Beta 5

iOS 8 beta 5 to be released August 4th, beta 6 on August 15th

iOS 8 beta 5 to be released August 4th, beta 6 on August 15th

By about 3 hours ago.

According to our sources, Apple is nearing the end of the beta testing cycle for iOS 8. We are told that the company plans to seed iOS 8 beta 5 to developers on August 4th, and a final version of the OS, iOS 8 beta 6 on August 15th. After that we most likely are going to have a lull of several weeks until Apple is ready to release the iOS 8 GM (this is the final version, barring any unforeseen emergency fixes / problems). The latest version of Apple’s upcoming mobile software, iOS 8 beta 4, is the most stable and smooth out of all the releases so far, and it also incorporates new design and user interface tweaks, bug fixes and feature enhancements.

Want to start using OS X Yosemite before it launches this fall? Here’s how you can

By about 4 hours ago.

Developers and people with access to developer accounts have already been able to try out the OS X Yosemite in beta form for more than a month, but soon Apple will make the beta version of its new OS available to a much wider audience. As promised at WWDC 2014, Apple will roll out a free Yosemite public beta release this summer, so anyone who’s interested in running Apple’s latest operating system on a Mac can test drive it before it’s released this fall.

The company told The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple that the public beta will be released on Thursday, July 24th. More →

Smartphones have completely changed the ways we work and play, but a problem has developed over the years: there are so many features and so much functionality packed into these nifty devices that it is impossible for anyone to remember it all.

Here at BGR, we try to help as often as we can but offering tips and tricks of our own, and also by bringing things to your attention when other sites offer useful tips — and here’s one we couldn’t pass on sharing.

By about 4 hours ago.

Advertisements can certainly be annoying, but they’re not always a bad thing. Problems arise most often when ads are intrusive or irrelevant, and when they do more to pester us than inform us. In the case of Google Maps, ads can actually be quite helpful in many scenarios, and Google just announced a few changes for the ads it serves in its Google Maps mobile app that might actually enhance users’ experiences.

Why it makes sense for iOS 8 and Yosemite to launch separately

By about 5 hours ago.

Apple’s new operating systems for mobile devices and computers will not launch simultaneously, 9to5Mac has learned from sources familiar with the matter, but that’s not necessarily surprising, even though iOS and OS X will be tied together more than ever once iOS 8 and Yosemite are released.
