iOS 9: All the best new features and additions we’ve discovered so far

Now that we’re a few weeks out from the release of iOS 8.4, it’s time to look ahead to the future of Apple’s mobile operating system. Back in June, Apple unveiled iOS 9 and announced that the update would begin rolling out to the public in the fall. Since then, we’ve seen four beta releases and the launch of a public beta.

As you might recall, Apple issued six separate beta releases for iOS 8, the last of which dropped in August — a month before the final public launch of the software. Providing Apple is working on a similar timeline in 2015, we’ve likely seen most of what the company has to offer in iOS 9 already, so we’re going to take this opportunity to round up all of the most interesting features we’ve discovered since the first beta rolled out in early June.

These are the 10 most beautiful movies ever made

Have you ever tried to make a list of your ten favorite movies? It’s a difficult and time-consuming task, but it’s also such a subjective list that you’ll probably never find anyone who agrees with you. Earlier this week, CineFix shared a video of the ten most beautiful movies of all time, and although it’s still a subjective list, I can appreciate each and every choice.

The Good Dinosaur Pixar Trailer

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ gets its first full-length trailer

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ gets its first full-length trailer

Following the release of Monsters University, many moviegoers became worried that Pixar might have finally lost its magic touch. The sequels just weren’t connecting with fans, and Brave, the studio’s one original film, suffered considerably from behind-the-scenes drama. It was beginning to look like Pixar’s reign had come to an end.

Then, after a year without a single Pixar release, the studio stormed back on to the scene with Inside Out and got us all back on their side. But can they keep us there? More →

Disappointed in Apple? Tweeting at Tim Cook is surprisingly effective

Have you ever tagged a CEO or a company in a Twitter message out of sheer frustration? Maybe Delta lost your luggage or you found a glass shard in your salad at Panera Bread. Whatever the case, it can be a decent way to blow off steam, but every once in a while, the subject of the complaint will actually get the message. More →

Amazon competitor Jet.com launches with better prices

Amazon competitor Jet.com launches with better prices

After the farce that was Prime Day, plenty of disgruntled customers would love to find another online store to patronize rather than reward Amazon for its bait-and-switch tactics.

Of course, alternatives to a storefront as enormous as Amazon are hard to come by, but on Tuesday, CEO Marc Lore launched Jet.com, a new site that combines the shopping experience of Amazon with the pricing and membership model of a wholesale store like Sam’s Club or Costco. More →

You’ve never seen the Earth like this before

Over the past few weeks, Pluto has dominated the headlines. It took nearly a decade, but the New Horizons probe finally reached Pluto on July 14th, giving us our closest look yet at what used to be the ninth planet in our solar system. It has been incredible to see the dwarf planet in detail for the first time in history, but today we’re taking a break from Pluto and returning to Earth. More →

Microsoft launches its first ads for Windows 10 – check them out right here

It was inevitable. They even told us it was coming, but I was still somehow surprised to see a Windows 10 ad parading around the Internet this morning. With ten days left until the launch of Microsoft’s next operating system, the first full commercial was shared on the Windows YouTube channel — an attempt to humanize a piece of software. More →
