There are still two big problems with Apple's iPhones, but the iPhone 7 will solve one of them
It's about damn time...
Just one week after Sony accidentally revealed it was bringing PlayStation Now to PC, the streaming service has gone live in the United States. That means that you can play over 400 PlayStation 3 games on your computer right this very instant by heading to PSNow.com and clicking the button to download the app.
Sony might be having a bit of trouble in the smartphone market right now, but there are several hot industries where Sony is still a force to be reckoned with. The company’s TVs are among the best in the business, and the PS4 is the top console of this generation. Of course, Sony’s audio gear is still top notch as well, and Amazon has a big sale going right now on Sony wireless headphones, Bluetooth speakers and more. The sale ends on Saturday, September 3, and we’ve picked out the five best deals for you right here. More →
Microsoft just released the Xbox One S and Sony is preparing to unveil the PS4 Slim, but in a few short months, Nintendo will launch the first truly new major video game console since 2013. The NX is currently scheduled to release next March, but we still know hardly anything about the console, as Nintendo has been predictably tight-lipped ever since the console was announced.
So in truth, we don’t know anything concrete about the NX, and likely won’t for a few more months. But at the very least, what do we think we know? More →
Chris Brown is in a standoff with LA police after allegedly pulling a gun on a woman during an argument. The cops have surrounded Brown’s home, the rapper told them they’d need a search warrant to come inside, and then he started posting videos on Instagram about the whole affair.
According to the LA Times, officers responded to a call for help from a woman at about 3AM. She claimed that Brown “pointed a gun at her during a violent rage before she ran outside to call police.” Officers attempted to enter the premises, but Brown told them to go get a search warrant, which they are apparently doing.

In a ruling handed down this morning, Apple was given a $14.5 billion bill for back taxes by the European Commission, related to its business in Europe and Ireland. Apple’s tax situation, including the hundreds of billions in cash held offshore, has always been a hot topic for the company. But how did it land in this mess, and who does it even owe money to anyway?
Tech fans around the world are abuzz as the rumors ramp up ahead of Apple’s big iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus event next week. We already know practically everything we should expect from Apple next week. The company’s new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will look a great deal like its old 6 and 6 Plus, but it’ll pack some big performance upgrades as well as a handful of new features. Both new models will have bigger batteries and twice the internal storage at each tier, and the larger iPhone 7 Plus will also sport a new dual-lens camera design.
But with Apple’s big iPhone 7 unveiling just around the corner, attention now turns briefly to Samsung because a new leak has seemingly revealed some exciting details about the company’s upcoming Galaxy S8. More →
We’ve talked about this more than once before, but Pokemon Go can be fairly inscrutable at times. If you never do any research, there are all kinds of tips, tricks and easter eggs you’ll likely never find.

Today’s batch of Amazon’s best daily deals is a great one, and it includes a number of products that have never been featured in a daily deals post before, like a combination SD card and microSD card reader that works with any iPhone or iPad for just $10.

Beyond that you’re looking at a $20 discount on the SmartThings Hub, a great drone for just $90, discounts on the Amazon Fire TV Stick and the Fire TV, a killer gaming speaker set, and plenty more.

The iPhone 7 will supposedly introduce at least one new color, which certainly sounds exciting to people who put appearance above all else when it comes to new iPhones. But what will the new iPhone color(s) be? Some say that black will join the existing silver, gold, pink and gray options. Others think that blue will be Apple’s new hue for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. And some even hope that both new colors will be available come mid-September. But a reliable source of leaks has more info that seems to settle the matter: There will apparently only be one new color, and it’s probably not the color you were hoping for.
Two separate reports emerged around the same time on Monday claiming to offer new details on a number of key iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus specs. According to the claims, much of what we’ve seen and heard thus far about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is accurate. They’ll feature a new 16nm Apple A10 processor, 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM depending on the model, upgraded cameras including a new dual-lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus, and bigger batteries. That’s all good news.
But there was some bad news to be found in yesterday’s leak, and the more I think about it the more annoyed I get. More →
Sonos wasn’t the first company in the world to release a wireless speaker, but there’s little question that the company played a major role in popularizing the category. Thanks to the success Sonos has had, every audio company imaginable has jumped head first into wireless speakers.
While there’s no question whatsoever that Sonos remains one of the best in the business when it comes to wireless home audio solutions, one size never fits all. Some people want different designs, and others might not want to work within the confines of the services Sonos supports. Whatever the case, rest assured that there are plenty of other great options out there for people in search of a new wireless speaker. In this post, we’ll check out five Sonos alternatives that offer great designs and fantastic sound. More →
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver may officially be on hiatus until September 25, but the comedian that the Daily Show should have never let leave was up to his usual tricks over the weekend in the form of a web-only video about the sad state of superhero movies. If you’re looking for biting commentary about the stream of garbage superhero movies we’ve seen as of late, that’s not exactly what Oliver has in mind. While he touches on that every so briefly, the crux of Oliver’s web-exclusive video is essentially him pitching a brand new superhero, one that he originally came up with as a kid.
