Tim Allen gives the BlackBerry Passport a high-profile endorsement on Jimmy Kimmel

BlackBerry would never do anything gimmicky like pay U2 to play at its flagship phone launch… well, OK, it did sort of appoint Alicia Keys to be its creative director that one time and it did have Wayne Gretzky introduce the Passport, but those two things were totally different because there’s always something pure about what they do! The point is, BlackBerry has never really been about getting celebrity endorsements for its products, although we can’t imagine it will turn them down if they just happen to come along. More →

The government is shamelessly trying to scare Apple and Google from encrypting their phones

Did you know that if Apple and Google encrypt the data on your smartphone, then pedophiles, bank robbers and terrorists will be able to wreak havoc upon America without any kinds of reservations? That’s the message that the United States federal government and law enforcement agencies are trying to send to both major tech companies and to the public at large about the dangers of smartphone encryption.

Smaller cable providers realize cord cutters are the future

Big providers like Comcast and Time Warner Cable may want to cling to the past but it looks like smaller cable providers seem to know that cord cutting is actually the future. The Wall Street Journal reports that smaller cable providers are increasingly placing more emphasis on their broadband offerings and less on TV packages as consumers have shown that they would much rather have a faster Internet service than hundreds of channels they never watch.

Awesome iPhone time lapse video shows you a beautiful London afternoon in 21 seconds

We absolutely love the new time lapse video feature that Apple has added to its iPhone cameras if for no other reason than it’s enabling iPhone users around the world to take some incredible videos and share them with everyone. One such video was uploaded onto Vimeo recently and it shows what a gorgeous afternoon in London looks like when it’s speeding by in the span of 21 seconds. More →

BlackBerry Passport Vs. iPhone Android

BlackBerry fanboy rips into everyone for being too stupid to understand the Passport’s greatness

BlackBerry fanboy rips into everyone for being too stupid to understand the Passport’s greatness

BlackBerry unveiled its new Passport flagship smartphone last week and media reaction so far has been decidedly mixed. In particular, many reviewers took issue with the Passport’s more square design and its boxy frame that they said made the device difficult to hold. BerryFlow’s Jubei Raziel isn’t hearing any of it, however, and he’s written a long tirade that rips into both the media and the average consumer for not being smart enough to comprehend the BlackBerry Passport’s true greatness.

Apple’s newest iPhones aren’t the only hugely anticipated devices that feature the number “6” to launch this fall.

Android Police has now obtained yet another picture of the Nexus 6, and this time it appears to be a photo of the device snapped while an early adopter was using it in public. More →

The most heartwarming iPhone video yet: Man takes slow-motion footage of his daughter’s (almost) first steps

Let’s be honest: At this point, Apple could make a killer iPhone 6 ad using only the incredibly cool videos that people have shot with the new device using the new camera features that come with iOS 8. This particular video is so heartwarming that it practically screams, “Use me in an Apple ad!” — a father uses his iPhone’s ability to take slow-motion footage at 240 frames per second to capture his daughter’s (almost) first steps.

Publication says Apple has banned it from official events over ‘Bendgate’ coverage

Apple is understandably tired of talking about bent iPhone 6 Plus models but at the same time it seems that the company might be overreacting a tad if it’s really threatening publications over their coverage of the controversy. German computer magazine ComputerBilt.de claims that Apple has cut it off from both receiving testing devices and from being invited to future Apple launch events after it posted a video that showed how the iPhone 6 Plus could be bent with your bare hands.

‘Gapgate’ solved: Here’s why the Galaxy Note 4 has a gap between its frame and display [updated]

Don’t mind the gap, says Samsung. Earlier this week we started hearing reports out of Korea that some Galaxy Note 4 owners were annoyed by a gap that they found between the Note 4’s frame and its display that was apparently wide enough to fit two pieces of A4 paper inside. Now, however, AndroidCentral has discovered that this isn’t a design bug… it’s a feature. More →
