Next-gen MacBooks will probably come with USB-C support

Apple’s 12-inch MacBook laptop launched last year was the industry’s first PC to ship with a USB-C port – and that’s the only connector the laptop has, aside from the headphone jack. Since then, other PC makers have adopted the port, but not all of Apple’s competitors are thrilled about the upgrade. A new report says that while some laptop manufacturers are reluctant to adopt USB-C in their upcoming devices, Apple will equip its next-gen MacBook Air (or Pro?) with the new interface. More →

The ice bucket challenge stunt actually led to major ALS research discovery

Remember the ice bucket challenge stunt that went viral almost two years ago? It turns out it was more than a gimmick, as it helped not only spread out awareness about ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), but also provide key funding that allowed researchers to discover one of the genes involved in the disease.

Samsung Turbo Speed Technology

Samsung found a way to turbocharge smartphones without upgrading chips or RAM

Samsung found a way to turbocharge smartphones without upgrading chips or RAM

“[A] common belief is that phone performance can only be improved in two ways, either using a faster processor or increasing the RAM.”

You may think that’s a quote from Apple, perhaps the introduction of an explanation of why the iPhone regularly bests Android flagships in performance despite having specs that never seem to measure up on paper. But you’d be wrong. That’s how Samsung starts a new video intended to explain that mid-range devices can be very powerful without sporting high-end specs. This only begs the question: If Samsung can pull off amazing performance without bumping up processor speed or adding more RAM, why does it keep doing that with every new Galaxy S and Galaxy Note model it launches?

Suicide Squad Quentin Tarantino Parody Trailer

Amazing fake trailer shows us what Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Suicide Squad’ would look like

Amazing fake trailer shows us what Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Suicide Squad’ would look like

Suicide Squad is hopefully going to be one of the best movies from the DC Comics cinematic universe, a story about a team of anti-heroes assembled by the US government to take part in a crucial suicide mission. We’ve already seen a variety of trailers featuring some of the most dangerous members of this squad, so we know what kind of characters to expect. But what if Quentin Tarantino made Suicide Squad? Would we have the same villains in this deadly team? Would they even stick to a DC Comics script? Would it somehow be even bloodier?

Samsung boss allegedly caught on camera soliciting prostitutes

It shouldn’t be anyone’s business what you choose to do with your free time, but if you’re the boss of one of the largest companies in the world, you should at least make sure nobody finds out about your predilections. After all, everyone has a pretty decent camera in their pocket these days, and Samsung makes a huge number of them. He may be in a coma right now, but Samsung Group chairman Lee Kun-hee is being investigated for having allegedly solicited the services of prostitutes multiple times between 2011 and 2013.

Microsoft thinks its new iOS camera app takes better photos than the iPhone

Microsoft is not a real contender in the smartphone business when it comes to hardware, but the company keeps launching exciting new apps for other platforms – or buying cool mobile apps – in its quest to dominate iPhone and Android. One such app from the software giant is Pix, a “smarter” camera app that’s supposed to take better pictures than the default iPhone camera app. Or, at least, that’s what Microsoft says. More →

Brand new Pokemon Go hack helps you locate Pokestops and gyms

The Pokemon Go craze has spawned an entire new breed of apps as developers come up with various resources that can help players. After one developer had figured out how to extract data from the game to create a map of Pokemon spawn locations, we started seeing a bunch of implementations of the hack, each one easier to use than the last. But these maps will only tell you what kind of Pokemon are spawning near you and how long they’re going to be available in that location. If you’re looking for a map that features Pokestops and gyms, then you need a different type of app and we’ve got just the thing. More →

The Pokemon Go accessory you want most has been delayed

If there’s one official Pokemon Go accessory that some fans want most, that must be the Pokemon Go Plus wearable device that lets you perform various game actions without using the smartphone. The device costs $34.99, a more than reasonable price for a dedicated “smartwatch” that only handles Pokemon Go chores. The gadget was initially supposed to launch in late July, but that’s not the case anymore. More →
