Why Apple’s cable-killing TV service might be delayed

Why Apple’s cable-killing TV service might be delayed

Earlier this year, we learned that Apple was beginning to get serious about launching a web TV service of its own — something to compete with the other over-the-top services that have started popping up around the market. Having its name attached to the service will be a plus, but Apple wants to truly differentiate itself from the competition.

Unfortunately, that could mean we won’t see the Apple’s service any time soon. More →

It can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with all of them, which is why we’ve decided to collect our favorites into a single post. More →

Mario Kart: Fury Road is the most essential mashup trailer of the year

Are you ready to see the best mashup of 2015? It’s subtle, it’s brilliant and it’s one of those things that you’ll never get out of your head after you watch it. Kris Sundberg, a VFX artist who worked on films such as Divergent and Into the Storm, has remade the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer with Mario Kart visual effects, and I think I’ve watched it a dozen times already.

Each and every day, we alert our readers to a selection of apps from the App Store that are free to download for a limited amount of time, but the official promotions run by Apple are rarely interesting enough to deserve a post of their own. This week is different though, as Apple has put 25 great apps and games on sale for $0.99 a piece, and we figured we’d highlight a few of the best. More →

Google Maps is no longer directing racists to the White House

Earlier this week, it was discovered that certain offensive search queries on Google Maps were pointing users in the direction of U.S. landmarks, including the White House. It was the latest of several incidents surrounding the service and highlighted an unfortunate side effect of the ranking system that Google had put in place.

Need for Speed 2015 Teaser

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed: Most Wanted was one of my favorite games of the last generation. It’s the second best open world racing game ever made (after the inimitable Forza Horizon 2), but its follow-up, Need for Speed Rivals, just didn’t connect with me. I wanted something even bigger and more impressive, but what I got was a conservative step into the new console generation.

A year and a half later, developer Ghost Games is back with another Need for Speed, and the first teaser just went live.

Watch comedians Tim and Eric roast Scientology to a burnt crisp

If you’re familiar with Tim and Eric, you might know that fans of their unique style of comedy are constantly ravenous for more content from the bizarre duo. Whether its TV shows or movies, separate or together, their audience is always willing to follow them, which is why their next baffling venture couldn’t be more appropriate.

On July 7th, Tim and Eric are publishing a book called “Tim and Eric’s Zone Theory: 7 Easy Steps to Achieve a Perfect Life,” and based on the trailer they released on Thursday, it kind of looks like their starting a religion. More →

Watch the incredibly moving trailer for Batkid Begins

Superhero movies are a dime a dozen in 2015, but there’s only one worth seeing without any special effects, Hollywood stars or planet-destroying monsters. Batkid Begins is the inspiring story of thousands of people banding together to make 5-year-old Miles Scott’s dream come true by turning San Francisco into Gotham and giving him the chance to save the day.

iOS 9 Apple Maps

iOS 9 to give Apple Maps a badly needed feature that Google’s had for years

iOS 9 to give Apple Maps a badly needed feature that Google’s had for years

Apple Maps has had its fair share of issues over the years, but one of the most disappointing aspects of the service is its lack of directions for those of us who regularly use transit systems to get around. As a resident of New York City, Apple Maps just isn’t a feasible option for me at the moment (even if it did function properly), but according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, transit support is finally coming to Apple Maps alongside the iOS 9 update next month.
