A few days ago, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams who plays Arya on the show said that “nothing will prepare” us for season 7, without revealing any other details about it. She did say on Twitter that she had finished reading the script for HBO’s next Thrones season. In an extensive interview about her character, her experience on the set and the fact that she’s nominated for an Emmy, Williams further explained why fans have to deal with the fact that Game of Thrones is ending soon, and why it’s perfectly okay to have a shorter season next year.

We’ve seen a ton of leaked iPhone 7 photos and videos, but many of them show iPhone 7 clones rather than actual iPhone 7 units, even if these fakes are based on actual iPhone 7 schematics. However, a case maker has now posted a slew of images that show accessories for the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These may be the best leaked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus images yet, given that premier accessory makers like Spigen might know certain things about Apple’s coming iPhones that the rest of us don’t.
Apple will soon unveil the iPhone 7, a smartphone that’s supposed to look almost exactly like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. But the device will pack better hardware, and bring over one massive change. The iPhone 7 will be the first iPhone to ship without a standard 3.5mm audio jack, and we still have no idea how Apple will deal with the matter. One solution would be wireless headphones, which Apple is reportedly working on. A new leak shows what appears to be Bluetooth EarPods that would ship with the iPhone 7. But we hope – and think – it’s fake. More →
Microsoft on Sunday took to Instagram to post a teaser image of the Surface Book, saying that Surface is “your key to success.” The company didn’t say anything about the photo, but people soon noticed there was something odd with the picture. It didn’t show the same Surface Book hinge that Microsoft introduced on the first model. Instead, the image hints at a significant design change coming in this year’s Surface Book 2. More →

According to most leaks thus far, both handsets are expected to be premium devices when it comes to build quality as well as internal components and performance.

Niantic has so far released several updates for Pokemon Go, but none of them brought the major new features players have been clamoring for. The company fixed bugs and added tiny improvements to the game in its recent updates for iPhone and Android. Meanwhile, a fixed tracker, support for trading Pokemon, and the introduction of legendary Pokemon have yet to be introduced — but these features might be just around the corner, according to a new report.
Fitness enthusiasts looking for new gadgets to track and monitor their health during workouts should check out the two brand new gadgets that Fitbit just announced — the Charge 2 and Flex 2.

Both Microsoft and Apple are preparing to launch new laptops this year, but it’s only the Redmond-based company that’s making a big fuss about its existing lineup. In a hilarious attack on the Mac, Microsoft says – well, sings – that the Macs are less useful, just like as a hat for your cat. The 30-second ad is funny, but also rather ironic, as Microsoft is making fun of the devices that it also happens to praise.
The Apple Watch experience is not perfect, but the device remains the best wearable money can buy. Apple will further improve the overall Watch experience this fall once watchOS 3 is launched.

We heard a few days ago that Barbra Streisand decided to pick up the phone and call none other than Tim Cook to demand a certain update in Siri. She wasn’t happy with the way Siri pronounces her name, and the Apple CEO obliged, letting her know that it’ll all be fixed come September 30th. Naturally, all tech blogs speculated that we’re going to get a new version of iOS on that date, likely the first iOS 10 release, though it would be a little late compared to Apple’s usual iOS rollout. But this isn’t about that at all. No, we’re just going to take a look at Streisand explaining the entire thing to Jimmy Fallon. More →

The best MacBook Pro money can buy right now is amazing. But it still can’t offer you the kind of gaming experience you expect from a computer, and the same goes for virtual reality. Apple might be exploring VR right now, and it’s likely that future MacBook Pros will have better graphic cards so they can handle more complex programs and games. But any existing MacBooks won’t be eligible for upgrades – after all, these are laptops.
To fix that, one company has come up with a device that aims to give any laptop, including MacBooks, a huge boost: Meet the Wolfe.
