And the good news is that the One (M8) will soon get a whole lot better with the addition of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is one of the best new releases of Android we’ve seen yet. More →

How to add Adobe Flash support to Android 5.0 Lollipop

How to add Adobe Flash support to Android 5.0 Lollipop

There is absolutely no question that Adobe Flash took a massive hit when late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs made it his personal mission to crush the shaky web tech and replace it with HTML5. Flash will someday be completely extinct as a result of that crusade, but it’s still hanging on for the time being and many websites will continue to make use of Flash for years to come.

People always talk about how phones and tablets are replacing desktop and laptop computers, but can they really be considered a suitable replacement if they can’t even properly display the millions of websites that still use Flash?

If you have an Android device and want to truly experience everything various websites have to offer, we’ll show you how to quickly and easily add Flash support to your phone or tablet. More →

6 apps that completely revolutionize email

By on November 21, 2014 at 11:21 AM.

Email. Is there anything in our lives that is more necessary and more burdensome? It seems like everyone hates email and no one can live without it, so the obvious next step is to fix it. Of course, in the context of email, the question becomes: What does “fix” even mean and who will finally pull it off?

There are dozens of companies that have taken a crack at “fixing” email, and some have done a better job than others. None have managed to solve all of our email woes, of course, but there are a handful of companies that have actually managed to launch fairly revolutionary email solutions.

And if you haven’t yet tried them out, you really should. More →

Apple is still hard at work making Apple Maps usable

Apple Maps still might not be the best mobile mapping service available for the iPhone, but Apple is doing everything in its power to give its users a reason to stick with the first-party app. The team at Apple Maps Marketing reports that it attempted to submit a client with a few hundred locations to the Apple Maps Connect service, but was rejected as Apple is only accepting submissions involving at least 1,000 locations.

Has Apple finally fixed major iOS 8 performance issues on older iPhones and iPads?

If you have an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2, you probably shouldn’t have upgraded to iOS 8. But in case you did and are stuck with subpar performance on your device, you should definitely install iOS 8.1.1 to at least get some marginal improvements on your older Apple devices. Ars Technica has done a thorough look at how iOS 8.1.1 performs on the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 and it says that while both devices do perform better with the newest update, some critical issues remain.

iPhone and Android Encryption vs. FBI

Why the government keeps telling you iPhone encryption will eventually kill a child

Why the government keeps telling you iPhone encryption will eventually kill a child

The U.S. government doesn’t appreciate the increased personal data protection measures tech companies including Apple, Google and others offer their American and international customers following the many reports that detailed the advanced spying and mass data collection tools the NSA has at its disposal. As a result, the government keeps offering tragedy scenarios — that a child will die because law enforcement agencies will not be able to access crucial data on an encrypted phone belonging to a criminal — in its attempt to persuade tech companies to come up with some sort of encryption technology that would give law enforcement agencies access to protected phones and other devices with a warrant, while still protecting other users’ privacy.
