This is probably our first look at a real iPhone 7

With just four months to go until Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are released, leaks are definitely starting to pick up pace. It makes sense in light of the recent news that iPhone 7 production is now underway — Apple has never been able to keep a lid on things once workers at its manufacturing partners’ plants get their hands on new iPhone parts.

If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out all of the big iPhone 7 leaks you missed from this past weekend. Once you’re done there, we have an even bigger treat for all the eager Apple fans out there: In all likelihood, the leaked photo below is our first look at a genuine iPhone 7 in the flesh. More →

Watch the Britney Spears BMA performance that the internet is going crazy over

Britney Spears has more lives than a cat at this point. She went from childhood fame, to pop icon status, to the brink of insanity and back to pop icon status before seemingly transcending to her current title, “Princess of Pop.” Spears has a high-paying residency in Las Vegas right now but she isn’t covered in the media like she used to be, making way for more recent female pop phenomena like Rhianna and Arianna Grande. Well, Britney took to the stage on Sunday night to open the 2016 Billboard Music Awards to remind us all who she is, and she basically destroyed social media in the process. More →

Siri brews coffee and even starts a party thanks to a $150 DIY home automation setup

Siri brews coffee and even starts a party thanks to a $150 DIY home automation setup

Apple’s virtual personal assistant Siri started a revolution. Shortly after the feature was released, every other big consumer tech company jumped on the bandwagon and started work on voice-controlled digital assistants of their own. But as we’ve seen in the past in certain areas like mobile display quality, Apple doesn’t always hold onto the lead when it’s the first to debut exciting new technology. Such is the case with Siri, which had fallen far behind some rivals even before Google unveiled Google Assistant earlier this week at Google I/O 2016.

Siri might not be at the head of the pack anymore, but it definitely still has a few tricks up its sleeve. More →

YouTube VR App

Your first look at the official YouTube VR app

Your first look at the official YouTube VR app

Google is going all in on virtual reality, and we saw the early stages of its plan for VR domination take shape this week at the annual Google I/O developer conference. The company covered plenty of bases during its big keynote event on Wednesday — check out the 8 most important announcements from Google I/O 2016 — but VR was absolutely one of the biggest. In fact, the entire event was streamed live in 360-degree video so that anyone with a VR headset anywhere in the world could follow along as if they were sitting right there in the audience.

The company’s mission is clear: Google wants to own VR. Android is clearly the proper tool for the job, and now another piece of the puzzle is falling into place. YouTube, the second most popular website in the world (behind Google.com), has an official VR experience in the works and we just got our first look at it. More →

VR Zombie Game

VR zombies are way too real for this woman

VR zombies are way too real for this woman

Fact: The only thing more fun than actually playing a zombie game in virtual reality is watching some one else freak out while playing a zombie game in virtual reality.

When the team at San Jose-based marketing firm Zooka Creative got their hands on an HTC Vive virtual reality headset, the staffers there were no doubt excited to check out the future of VR. As anyone who has ever tried the Vive will attest to, the VR experience it offers is incredible — take a look at our 24-hour Vive review if you haven’t already seen it.

But VR is intense and sometimes it can get way too real, as illustrated by the hilarious freak-out you’re about to watch. More →

Change your LinkedIn password right now

Remember when LinkedIn was hacked a few years ago and the company confirmed that login credentials and other data belonging to 6.5 million accounts were stolen? Well, it turns out that figure might have been a little low. OK it was very, very low — it looks like hackers managed to steal data from not 6.5 million, and not even 65 million, but just over 165 million accounts.

In other words, it’s time to change your LinkedIn password immediately. More →

New leak shows Samsung’s next iPhone

Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge clearly took inspiration from Apple’s iPhone lineup in a few key areas, but the phones for the most part have their own design identity. In particular, the Galaxy S7 edge stands alone as the sleekest and most stylish smartphone the world has ever seen — iPhone included. But just when it seemed as though Samsung was going to head in its own direction and steer away from its long history of copying Apple, something like this happens. More →

3 new ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ videos tease the must-see movie of the summer

Will Smith might not be reprising his role in the upcoming sequel to the late-1990s blockbuster Independence Day, but three new teaser videos released this week will get fans even more excited for what’s shaping up to be one of the must-see movies of the summer. The original managed to pull in nearly $900 million at the box office, and that was all the way back in 1996. Independence Day: Resurgence clearly has some big shoes to fill but if these new videos are any indication, theater goers are in for a wild ride next month.

Why is professional skier Jon Olsson flying around a glacier in a snow camo Lamborghini Murcielago? I think the better question would be, why wouldn’t professional skier Jon Olsson fly around a glacier in a snow camo Lamborghini Murcielago? Welcome to the Fonna Glacier Ski Resort in Jondal, Norway, which recently played host to what appears to be one of the most fun and exhilarating joyrides of all time.

How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6s

How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6s

If history is any indication, Apple has no plans of addressing iPhone owners’ two biggest complaints anytime soon. The first is always battery life, but Apple clearly values design aesthetics enough to prevent it from making a thicker iPhone with a larger battery. And as bad as the iPhone’s battery life can be, it certainly doesn’t seem to be hurting sales — despite the recent dip, iPhones are still the best-selling smartphones in the world.

Coming in closely behind battery life is the lack of expandable storage. iPhones are some of the most expensive smartphones in the world but Apple still insists on “encouraging” users to buy more expensive models; 16GB gets you nowhere and it’s only another $100 for 64GB. You could shell out more money for a bigger iPhone, or you could add microSD card support to your current iPhone in just a few seconds like I just did. More →
