One new feature you need to avoid when you upgrade to iOS 8

It won’t be long now before everyone begins upgrading to iOS 8, but there’s one feature of the new software that you shouldn’t activate quite yet. iCloud Drive, Apple’s answer to Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive, is part of Continuity — a new set of features which will allow iOS and Mac to integrate with one another more deeply than ever before. We called Continuity one of the best new features on iOS 8, but before you dive into iCloud Drive, you should know that it will only be compatible with OS X Yosemite. More →

Hyrule Warriors review: A link to the past

Playing Hyrule Warriors is like playing with action figures — it’s not a great representation of how a war in the world of The Legend of Zelda would actually play out, but with a little imagination, everything comes to life. Hyrule Warriors is a bit of a mess, but once you become acclimated to the oft-repeated gameplay loop, there’s plenty of fun to be had. More →

As if there haven’t been enough security scares in 2014 already, it looks like another household electronic device could be putting our private information at risk. According to security consultant Benjamin Daniel Mussler at B.FL7.DE, Amazon’s Kindle Library is currently vulnerable to XSS attacks, in which malicious code is inserted into the metadata for an eBook.

Android users: Apple just made it even easier to switch to iPhone 6

In one of its boldest moves of the year, Samsung released a commercial explaining that the iPhone 6 isn’t exactly a fresh idea. In fact, the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung’s fourth flagship phablet, is heading to store shelves next month, but Apple wasn’t going to let the snark slide by without some form of retaliation. On Tuesday, Apple published a new page on its support site which detailed something many smartphone users are going to need to know this weekend: how to move content from an Android phone to an iPhone 6.

How to get rid of the U2 album that Apple put in your iTunes account

How to get rid of the U2 album that Apple put in your iTunes account

Most of the announcements Apple made last Tuesday were greeted with applause from the audience and general praise from the Internet, but everyone was understandably unsure of how to react when U2 appeared to reveal that their new album had been injected into every iTunes account without our permission. For many, this strange, but ultimately harmless, gesture struck a nerve, which has forced Apple to give disgruntled iTunes users a way to quickly remove the album from their libraries. More →

Destiny review: Lonely planets

Destiny is one of the most high-concept releases to ever reach home consoles. Combining some of the most beloved elements of massively-multiplayer online games with the pedigree of one of the most heralded FPS developers of the past decade, it was nearly impossible to imagine a reality where Destiny didn’t live up to the hype. But that’s the reality we live in. More →

Verizon will let you upgrade to an iPhone 6 up to two months early

For the early adopters among us who can’t wait to get our hands on the latest technology, two-year contracts can be endlessly frustrating.

In order to alleviate some of that pain, Verizon is allowing anyone with an upgrade date on or before November 15th to upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus starting this Monday. More →

The brand new Moto X will be available to preorder starting tomorrow

Motorola staged an incredible comeback with the Moto X. When we reviewed it last year, we called it “the first iPhone of the Android world,” which leaves some big shoes to fill for its successor. Fortunately, Motorola seems to have defied the odds with its updated Moto X, which we were thoroughly impressed by during our first hands-on impressions with it. Now you can get your hands on a new Moto X of your own as preorders begin opening up this week. More →
