Bitcoin creator ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ has come forward and revealed his identity

We’ve been down this path before, but it’s looking increasingly likely that this may in fact be the last time. After a big mistake turned Dorian Nakamoto’s life upside down in 2014 when Newsweek unmasked the wrong man, the true Satoshi Nakamoto has seemingly come forward in a blog post and a coordinated reveal with several news agencies. Australian Craig Wright claims to be the inventor of popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin, and he apparently has provided technical evidence to back up his claim by providing keys tied to coins that are widely known to be in the possession of Bitcoin’s inventor.

Steve Jobs Last Words

These aren’t Steve Jobs’s last words, but they still managed to inspire a billionaire

These aren’t Steve Jobs’s last words, but they still managed to inspire a billionaire

Remember back when email chains were a thing? Instead of sharing anything and everything you find online using Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, people would pass along anecdotes via email. Several of these chain emails would reach your inbox each day, and you’d forward the best and most inspirational among them to everyone on your contact list. And the best part about them, of course, was that the stories they recounted were almost always completely and utterly fake.

We were reminded recently of these silly chain emails by an inaccurate story currently making the rounds online claiming to recount the inspiring last words of late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs. Interestingly, the passage was still moving enough to inspire a billionaire even though it doesn’t recount Jobs’s final words at all. More →

You can get a brand new Galaxy S7 for $560 right now if you hurry

There are precious few high-end smartphones that are actually worth paying top dollar for, but the Galaxy S7 should be counted among them. Samsung did a tremendous job of combining a gorgeous design with cutting-edge specs, and the S7 easily has the best smartphone display on the planet. It’s our favorite Android phone right now, hands down.

But just because it’s worth paying top dollar doesn’t mean you actually should. More →

Best iPhone Wallpapers 2016

This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

Every time I publish a post that includes a photo of my iPhone at the top of the page, my email inbox and Twitter DM box fill up a little quicker than usual. Why? People always seem to love the wallpapers I use on my iPhone. I’m not a designer and I don’t do anything particularly special to find wallpapers or to make them, but I do put some effort into the wallpapers I use. There are so few things Apple allows users to do to customize the look of the iPhone, so I try whatever I can to give my phone a little extra flair.

How do I always manage to make my iPhone look so much better than yours? It’s time to let the cat out of the bag. More →

Everything we know about the suicide at Apple’s headquarters this week

This has been an incredibly difficult week for Apple. The company shed more than $40 billion in market capitalization on Tuesday evening following its fiscal first-quarter earnings report, which showed a much steeper decline than Wall Street was expecting in both profit and iPhone sales. Then, just one day later, tragedy struck Apple’s Cupertino, California headquarters when one of the company’s employees was found dead in a conference room on campus.

The story is still unfolding two days later. More →

Apple issues statement following apparent suicide at Cupertino headquarters

Apple on Thursday morning issued an official statement after a man was found dead on Wednesday at Apple’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California. Officials from the Santa Clara County’s Sheriff’s Department confirmed on Wednesday that they responded to a call around 8:35 a.m. local time stating that there was a “person down” on Apple’s Cupertino campus. Upon arriving at the scene they discover the body of a deceased male. The coroner is currently examining the body and the cause of death has not yet been confirmed, but reports suggest that the victim died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Now, Apple has released a statement confirming that the deceased man was indeed an Apple employee. More →

Completely change the look of your iPhone with round folder icons, no jailbreak needed

This has got to be one of the coolest iOS bugs we’ve seen in a long time, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Apple doesn’t fix it anytime soon.

Little glitches are common to find here and there in iOS, as is the case with any other software platform. Sometimes they’re serious bugs that compromise the security of your iPhone or iPad, but sometimes they’re harmless little glitches that offer some unexpected side effects. The latest bug found in the iOS platform thankfully falls into the latter category, and it gives your iPhone or iPad an awesome new look typically reserved only for people who jailbreak their phones.
