Why Apple desperately needs to launch the new Beats Music: iTunes Radio is godawful

Remember when we thought iTunes Radio would be a legitimate competitor to Pandora? Well that was foolish of us because iTunes Radio hasn’t done anything to disrupt, let alone “kill,” music streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify.  More →

New video shows why the Galaxy S6 is a marvel of engineering

The Galaxy S6 is by far the most impressive smartphone Samsung has ever released but you don’t realize just how impressive it is until you see it undergo some of the insane torture tests that sadistic YouTubers put it through. SquareTrade Inc recently put the Galaxy S6, the S6 edge and the iPhone 6 through a wide gamut of torture tests and found that the Galaxy S6 really is the toughest phone on the block, as you’ll see in a video below.

Watch SpaceX’s reusable rocket come agonizingly close to safely landing on an ocean platform

SpaceX on Tuesday once again tried to safely land one of its game-changing reusable rockets onto an ocean platform and it came agonizingly close to being a success. Unfortunately, however, the rocket swerved slightly during the landing process and toppled over, thus marking the second time SpaceX has tried and failed to land on a moving platform in the ocean. All the same, SpaceX came much closer to succeeding in its second attempt than in its first, which resulted in an immediate explosion on impact. More →

Huge survey suggests Apple will sell over 15 million Apple Watches in the U.S. alone

If this week’s earlier estimates are right, it took the Apple Watch just days to become the best-selling smartwatch of all time. While that obviously isn’t saying much, it looks like the Apple Watch is just getting started: A major new survey from Reuters suggests that Apple is going to sell 15 million Apple Watches in the United States alone.

Duracell unveils the stupidest product we’ve seen since Sony’s ‘premium sound’ memory card

Hey, would you like to get wireless charging capabilities on your phone even though it’s not equipped to handle wireless charging? Then don’t worry — Duracell has a less-than-amazing new accessory for you! Thanks to Android Police for directing our attention to Duracell’s new charging accessory that it claims delivers “wireless charging.” In reality, the charging pad just replaces wires with a charging ring that you have to plug your phone into and isn’t anything close to the kind of wireless charging capabilities you can get with the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Flip phone user asks the Internet how he can ask for girls’ numbers without feeling like a loser

Not everyone owns or wants a smartphone… and there’s nothing wrong with that! Nonetheless, Gawker directs our attention to one insecure flip phone owner who recently asked Quora for advice on how to ask for women’s phone numbers on his flip phone without coming across like a loser. Happily, Quora is a much more civilized place than Twitter or the comments section of a YouTube video, so he got some fairly thoughtful responses. More →

You need to watch Conan get destroyed in Mortal Kombat X

Even for people who are desensitized to video game violence, Mortal Kombat X can be pretty gruesome, particularly the closeup shots of assorted human organs being ripped out of characters’ bodies. Because of this, we were interested to see Conan O’Brien’s always-fresh take on the game when he played it this week alongside game creator Ed Boon as part of the Monday Melee gaming segment. More →

Google EU Antitrust Charges Analysis

The biggest irony of the EU’s antitrust case against Google

The biggest irony of the EU’s antitrust case against Google

When I woke up this morning, I full expected to write another scathing opinion piece tearing Google to shreds for acting as a bullying monopolist. However, after reading about the EU’s case against Google, I came away with the feeling that it isn’t nearly as strong as the case American regulators seemed to have against the company, which makes it even more infuriating that the Federal Trade Commission declined to press charges.

Net Neutrality Verizon AT&T Comcast Lawsuit

ISPs have two choices: Live with net neutrality rules or live with real competition

ISPs have two choices: Live with net neutrality rules or live with real competition

I’ve had conversations in the past with people from Europe who just don’t understand why America needs to have network neutrality restrictions. Their argument is that if one of the ISPs in their country tried to throttle Netflix to make its own other-the-top video service run faster, people would flee to a rival ISP and thus put them out of business. It’s at this point that I laugh at them and say, “What I wouldn’t give to have even two choices for broadband services!” More →

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Bill Of Materials

There is nothing cheap about the Galaxy S6 edge

There is nothing cheap about the Galaxy S6 edge

In the past, Samsung has charged premium prices for phones that have just felt cheap, thanks largely to the flimsy plastic builds on devices like the Galaxy S4. However, Samsung has been working to improve its build quality since then and with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, it’s come out with two phones that really feel premium. Re/code reports that Samsung really spared no expense when it came to building its new phones either, as they cost the company more money to build than any other phone it’s released so far. More →

Google is about to get slammed with major antitrust charges

Google’s “Don’t Be Evil” credo is about to take a major publicity hit. The Financial Times is reporting that the European Union on Wednesday will formally accuse Google of abusing its power as the world’s most used search engine. Specifically, the EU is poised to serve Google “with a formal charge sheet alleging that it breached antitrust rules by diverting traffic from rivals in order to favour its in-house services.” More →
