Yosemite WiFi Bug Fix

Apple’s new Yosemite update reportedly didn’t fix the annoying Wi-Fi bug for everyone

Apple’s new Yosemite update reportedly didn’t fix the annoying Wi-Fi bug for everyone

Apple’s OS X 10.10 Yosemite update was released to the public last month, and it was a massive update. The new software featured a big user interface overhaul that helped modernize the look of OS X a bit, and it also added a number of great new features such as redesigned Spotlight search and Continuity. Unfortunately, for many users the update also introduced an extremely annoying Wi-Fi connection bug, and it looks like Apple’s just-released OS X 10.10.1 update didn’t solve the problem for everyone.

One of the best Android launchers just got even better – and you can finally download it

Nokia surprised the mobile community this past summer when the company unveiled its first ever Android app, Z Launcher. With its devices and services business out of the way and its obligations to Microsoft regarding Windows Phone gone, the company wasted no time in embracing Google’s mobile platform.

Z Launcher, a nifty and intelligent Android launcher that places a user’s most popular apps on the home screen and changes based on the time of the day, was initially released as a pre-beta intended to be made available to 10,000 initial testers.

By the end of its first day of availability, Z Launcher had been downloaded 100,000 times and Nokia had to stop accepting new users. More →

Nokia N1: Nokia bursts back onto the scene with an all-aluminum Android 5.0 tablet

Nokia recently shed its devices and services group in a multi-billion dollar deal that saw its entire Windows Phone business offloaded to Microsoft, which will continue to push Windows Phones under the Lumia brand. While many thought the deal could mean the end of Nokia’s consumer business, the company surprised us all this past summer when it launched its first Android app, the shockingly innovative Z Launcher app that will finally public beta on Tuesday.

Where Nokia’s efforts with Android are concerned, however, that app was just the beginning. More →

One of Google’s most ambitious and important projects reaches a new milestone

Do you remember life before the Internet? Younger generations in developed countries will likely find it hard to imagine, but there was once a time when information wasn’t always a few taps or clicks away. Now, whether you’re in your home or on the go, the world’s information is always at your fingertips. Of course, there are still billions of people who do not have the same easy access to the web that many of us take for granted. In fact, more people than you might imagine have never accessed the Internet at all in their lifetimes.

But Google is trying to change that. More →

How To Free Up Space On iPhone

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

While iOS 8 is probably the most substantial update Apple’s mobile software platform has ever received, adoption has been shockingly slow compared to earlier iOS updates. It makes sense that people might not be quite as quick to update to iOS 8 as they were with iOS 7, which introduced an exciting new look for iOS. But the gap has been fairly significant, and most people seem to agree that the explanation for the slower adoption rate is fairly simple: People just don’t have enough free space on their devices to download and install iOS 8 or iOS 8.1 over the air.

Connecting to iTunes to perform the update is one possibility, but many people have never connected their iPhones and iPads to a computer and don’t want to start now. If you fall into that category, here’s the best thing you can to free up space and update your smartphone or tablet. More →

This major Android 5.0 Lollipop bug has Android fans fuming

Google’s new Android 5.0 update could be the most hotly anticipated Android update yet. Similar to iOS 7 last year, Google’s Lollipop update for Android features an exciting redesign that people can’t wait to get their hands on. While Android 5.0′s user interface overhaul isn’t quite as extensive as Apple’s iOS 7 update in 2013, the new look of Material Design is beautiful and it truly modernizes Google’s mobile platform.

Unfortunately, Android users who have gotten the update already have to deal with what appears to be a fairly serious and annoying bug. More →
