A pair of reliable sources have pegged March 15 as the date when Apple will introduce a trio of new products, including an iPhone 5se, an iPad Air 3, and a subtly enhanced version of the Apple Watch.
As the date steadily approaches, more details surrounding the iPhone 5se have continued to roll in. The most recent report, sourced from the Japanese site Mac Otakara, relays that the iPhone 5se will come in a trio of colors, including Silver, Space Gray, and interestingly enough, some form of pink hue.

Well guess what: There are already a million different headphones that will work with the iPhone 7 once it’s released, and you definitely won’t have to spend a lot of money to score a pair. More →
The first episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones was a remarkable piece of television that showed the world that it was actually possible to make a TV show out of George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy epic.

As I’ve mentioned countless times during my career at BGR, the Internet is a miraculous place full of wondrous things. Earlier this week I discovered Frinkiac, the incredible search engine that lets you find the still frames that correspond with any Simpsons quote you want to find. Along with the pyramids, the Sistine Chapel and the moon landing, I consider this one of humanity’s finest achievements.
While the video I’m about to show you doesn’t come close to the miracle of the ultimate Simpsons search engine, it’s definitely running a strong second place in the race for the coolest thing I’ve found on the web this week.
Clueless Gamer has become one of Conan O’Brien’s most popular recurring segments, but we’ve been seeing them far less frequently in recent months.

Security breaches affecting millions of users have come to light in recent years, yet we’re no better at protecting our personal data, or at picking good passwords, than we were before. But some companies are already looking at new ways to secure customer data that go beyond passwords and PINs. Fingerprint sensors are found on more and more smartphones in recent years, and retina scanners are coming too. But in the future, we may have an even more advanced way of logging into online services and protecting our data: Brain scans.

I know what you must be thinking: Building and running your own website or blog is probably a complex job that involves some sort of coding skills. But the truth is that nowadays you can create your own website and manage it with ease without actually writing any single line of code.
As long as you have a good grasp of how it all works, you’ll be up and running in virtually no time: You need a domain name and hosting plan and then you need a Content Management System (CMS).
If your iPhone dies and you need to juice up as quickly as possible, there’s an incredible and little-known tip that can help you charge up your iPhone faster than ever. While most people know that charging your iPhone in Airplane Mode can help speed things along by ensuring that your device doesn’t tax it self by updating apps in the background or perhaps straining for a weak cellular signal, this particular tip can really be a lifesaver when you need a charge in a pinch.
The simple solution? Charge your iPhone with your iPad charger.
Does Apple recommend this? Is this even allowed?
Actually, yes. There’s even an Apple support page which explicitly states that you can charge up all iPhone and iPod models with the iPad’s USB power adapter.
