iPhone fans are trashing Apple Pay rival CurrentC in App Store reviews – here are the funniest ones

MCX may claim that its CurrentC mobile payment platform is a bold challenge to the mobile payments status quo but its target audience isn’t seeing it that way so far. In fact, it looks that like as Android fans have done, iPhone fans have also taken to trashing CurrentC on their favorite platform’s app store and are often doing so in rather humorous ways. More →

Here is the most idiotic reaction to Tim Cook coming out as gay

When Tim Cook came out as gay on Thursday, the reaction from fellow tech leaders and from most politicians was largely positive. We knew that not everyone would react this way, however, and sure enough The Washington Post has cataloged some of the more idiotic reactions to Cook coming out. While some of the reactions were fairly predictable — really, who didn’t think the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer would say something stupid? — the most boneheaded reaction so far actually comes to us from Vitaly Milonov, a Russian member of parliament who wants Cook banned from entering his country for life.

Everyone loves the idea of being able to make free international calls on their phones and now Google is letting you do so… but only for a minute. Google this week announced that “the first minute of calls to phone numbers in twenty-five different countries is now free” if you make those calls using Google’s Hangouts mobile app. More →

Steve Wozniak Seth Rogen Cast

Aaron Sorkin may have found the perfect person to play Steve Wozniak

Aaron Sorkin may have found the perfect person to play Steve Wozniak

Do you imagine Steve Wozniak smoked a lot of pot and made a lot of penis jokes in his youth? If so then you’ll think the casting choice for Woz’s role in Aaron Sorkin’s new Steve Jobs biopic is absolutely perfect. According to Variety, none other than Seth Rogen has been tapped to play Wozniak in the upcoming film, which we think is an inspired choice for the brilliant and often very amusing Apple cofounder. Christian Bale, who is best known for playing Batman in Gary Nolan’s highly acclaimed trilogy, will play opposite Rogen as Steve Jobs.  More →

Video: A slab of asphalt survives being subjected to a BlackBerry Passport drop test

The BlackBerry Passport is so big and rugged that it’s quickly garnering a reputation as the Chuck Norris of smartphones — in other words, we expect that when it’s subjected to a drop test, we’re more worried about what will happen to the parking lot asphalt than the actual phone.

The untethered iOS 8 jailbreak you’ve been waiting for is finally here

Last week we told you about a promising iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 jailbreak release that wasn’t quite ready for primetime because it didn’t yet have support for the Cydia app store, which is usually the main attraction for people who jailbreak their phones and want to install unauthorized iOS apps. 9to5Mac brings us word, however, that the team from Pangu have now brought Cydia onboard, which means that their jailbreak should now be good to download and install onto your device.

Apple threatened to remove the best iOS 8 widgets in the App Store… and then changed its mind

Apple threatened to remove the best iOS 8 widgets in the App Store… and then changed its mind

Good news: It looks like you’ll still be able to whip out your iOS 8-powered iPhone or iPad, head to Notification Center, and perform some quick calculations on a calculator widget that you previously placed in the Today section. TechCrunch now reports that Apple has decided against an earlier decision to reject calculator apps from building iOS 8 widgets, which should come as a relief to apps like PCalc that first started complaining about Apple’s widget policies earlier this week.

These pictures show one way Apple could have made the iPhone 6 even better

It’s safe to say that the iPhone 6 is the biggest smartphone hit of 2014, which is entirely to be expected given the wide acclaim it’s received and the enthusiasm that iPhone users have for the product. However, there are always things to improve with every device and these pictures posted by Gizmodo show that Apple could actually learn a thing or two when it comes to maximizing display size while minimizing extra space used for side bezels, cameras and microphones.

Sick of constant media bashing, Verizon funds a tech news site where the NSA and net neutrality don’t exist

It’s hard being Verizon sometimes. The poor little wireless carrier and Internet service provider often gets a bum rap in the tech press for its controversial actions on net neutrality and on enabling the American government’s surveillance programs. To combat these nattering negative ninnies in the media, Verizon has decided to take action and bankroll its own news site where none of those nasty sorts of stories will ever pop up. More →
