Will.i.am is a stupid person with stupid ideas

Will.i.am is a stupid person with stupid ideas

“You were thinking it!”

“Yeah, but you said it!”

I think we all need to have a little talk. Everyone is thinking it, so I’m going to come out and say it… will.i.am is so stupid. He’s talented in some ways, namely music, and I don’t know him personally but friends who know him say he’s an arrogant asshole. That doesn’t matter, though. What matters is how ridiculous will.i.am’s entire foray into the tech world is, and has been.

Shall we take a trip down memory lane together and remember how when everyone knew BlackBerry was dead in the water, this idiot was launching a failed social network and being trotted out by BlackBerry at the company’s conferences? Or how his iPhone camera attachment took the world by storm? More →

Apple Event Predictions

The Boy Genius Report: Predictions for Apple’s October event

The Boy Genius Report: Predictions for Apple’s October event

Apple’s October event is just around the corner — actually, it’s this Thursday, the same day we’re celebrating our eight-year anniversary. In any case, Apple is holding two events this year, similar to last year. The first September event was focused on the iPhone and upcoming Apple Watch, and the second event most definitely is going to include updates to the company’s computer line.

It could be really interesting if Apple introduces not just a new Retina iMac with an insane better-than-4K resolution display, but also the rumored new Retina MacBook, which is going to be off the charts if it’s ready. More →

BGR’s Anniversary Event is next Thursday in NYC, here’s how you can RSVP

BGR’s Anniversary Event is next Thursday in NYC, here’s how you can RSVP

That’s right, it’s just around the corner. We have been overwhelmed with RSVPs for the Anniversary Event next Thursday, October 16th. Since RSVPing automatically enters you to win one of many, many HTC devices that will be given away that night, we wanted to make the process even easier (and our events team needs more than an hour of sleep a night). So, going forward, you can use the form here to enter in your details, and you then are automatically confirmed. Remember to get there early — it starts at 7:00 pm but we’re expecting a huge line. It’s also the first time you are going to get to experience the brand new HTC Desire EYE and HTC Re. More →

Come celebrate our 8-year anniversary on October 16th in NYC!

It is astonishing to think that BGR started eight years ago, and it wouldn’t have existed if not for our great readers, so we wanted to do something special this year. In addition to celebrating our anniversary, we’re also extremely excited to announce that September was our biggest month ever by a mile, and it’s all because of you. As a thank you to our awesome audience, we wanted to throw a party and invite all of you.

We are really happy to also announce an amazing event partner — HTC! In fact, this is such a special event that not only are we giving away a boatload of HTC devices, but it’s also going to be the public’s first chance to get up close and personal with some new HTC products. Plus, food and drinks are on us, so what more could you ask? More →

Apple releases iOS 8.1 beta to developers, change log here

Apple releases iOS 8.1 beta to developers, change log here

Apple has just seeded iOS 8.1 to developers. This makes one of the fastest iOS x.1 releases ever — normally the first beta is released a couple months after the new version of iOS ships. It could have to do with an much more aggressive software release schedule and the fact that Apple not only has the upcoming Apple Pay update, but most likely a software update for the company’s new iPads, and another one early next year to support Apple Watch. The change log follows below. More →

iPhone 6 Plus review

My thoughts on large phones have been known since the beginning, and that’s why I wanted to review the iPhone 6 Plus instead of the iPhone 6. If there’s a device that could get me to reconsider how I view 5-inch plus-sized devices, it would be the iPhone 6 Plus. It’s the same phone as the iPhone 6, just a little bit larger. I spent almost a week with one and here is what I think.

So now that you bought an iPhone 6 Plus, is it way too big for you?

So now that you bought an iPhone 6 Plus, is it way too big for you?

Everyone knows my thoughts on the supersized smartphone category, and so far my view hasn’t changed even after using the iPhone 6 Plus for half a day. But that doesn’t really matter, what matters is what you think. Who has picked up Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus and absolutely loves it? Is it bigger than you thought? Is it exactly what you expected and needed?

Let us know if you’re coming from another large device like a Galaxy Note or something smaller and what your initial thoughts are! More →

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Here is our first look!

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: Here is our first look!

Here we go… as is tradition, we always manage to get our hands on Apple’s new iPhones a wee bit early. This year brings two different models, and judging by what has been reported and written, the iPhone 6 is the evolution of the iPhone line, while the iPhone 6 Plus can almost be considering a new type of product for Apple — one that might even be able to replace the iPad mini.

Here are my initial observations, followed by a boatload of photos. More →

iPhone 6 Release Date

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

We just spoke with multiple sources at carrier stores and authorized Apple retailer partner locations, and the straight up fact is it’s going to harder to find an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow than a Turbo Man. We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color.

There is “no chance” of finding an iPhone 6 Plus unit to purchase tomorrow, we were told. Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found. More →

Apple Watch Price

No one understands the Apple Watch strategy, and it’s totally a winner

No one understands the Apple Watch strategy, and it’s totally a winner

Not much is known about Apple’s upcoming Apple Watch pricing besides the fact that, what assume is the Sport edition, will start at $349. Whether this even includes bands, we do not know. It is likely there are going to be different storage capacities for the less expensive models, so it’s not inconceivable to think that $349 is going to get you the Sport Watch with something like 16GB of storage, and then another $100 for 32GB and another $100 for 64GB.

iOS 8 Features

These are the most amazing reactions to iOS 8

These are the most amazing reactions to iOS 8

Some of the reactions to Apple’s iOS 7 were pretty amazing when it was first release last year. It was a brand new operating system with a brand new look and people either loved it or hated it.

Another year and another update are now upon us, and here are some of the most amazing reactions we have come across. They range from rage to excitement, to joy, to heartbreak. One of the popular themes seems to be the 5GB of free space required to install iOS 8 over the air, which could be pretty tight on a 16GB iPhone. One trick if you haven’t updated yet is to use iTunes, which requires much less free space. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Vs iPhone 6

You just made a very huge mistake by ordering the iPhone 6 Plus

You just made a very huge mistake by ordering the iPhone 6 Plus

Look, the iPhone 6 Plus has a lot going for it. Its battery is like, so much better than the iPhone 5s. The camera is even better than the iPhone 6! And the screen! Holy screen! But there is one big problem here… most of you just picked it because it was the “better” and more expensive option. You’re all probably like, “Yeah this is great, larger phone, I can do more. Bigger is better. AMERICA! Cheese fries with extra grease!” More →
