This ‘sexy’ PS4 commercial is actually so offensive that Sony had to pull it

By about 6 hours ago.

Sony has published a new PlayStation 4 ad on its European PlayStation channel, but pulled it rather fast (technically, the ad is listed as private) after realizing the commercial can be perceived as quite offensive to a certain group of gamers. The ad — which is still available on YouTube, as it has been quickly reposted by others — features an attractive female doctor who seems to suggest the viewer has been “furiously masturbating,” as Business Insider puts it.

That said, Technology Review points out that there are good reasons to believe that Apple’s sapphire display plan for the iPhone 6 may have been doomed from the start because it seems both Apple and GT Advanced underestimated the major difficulties involved in mass producing large sapphire screens.

By about 10 hours ago.

Apple’s massive iOS 8 update was released this past September and developers are still updating their apps to take full advantage of the thousands of new capabilities Apple added in its new mobile software.
