Video: Apple triples down on secrecy with help from Stephen Colbert

On Thursday, Apple held an event and unveiled the new iPad mini 3, iPad Air 2 and a refreshed iMac with a 5K Retina display. Apple executives weren’t all business while on stage in California, however, as Apple’s software chief Craig Federighi took some time to reveal to the world that Apple has enlisted Stephen Colbert as its new “chief of secrecy.” More →

The most hilarious thing you’ll see today: Conan invents amazing new emoji

It seems like people in their mid-20s and younger can no longer communicate using conventional methods such as… typing words. Instead, they string together surprisingly complex thoughts using only emoji, the tiny ideograms that first became popular in Japan and then spread across the globe like wildfire. There are already hundreds of tiny faces, people, animals, objects and more in the ever-growing emoji library, but what happens when you need to express more specific emotions with emoji?

As it turns out, Conan O’Brien has the perfect solution. More →

iOS 8 Autocomplete Song

The most hilarious thing you’ll see today: The iOS 8 autocomplete song

The most hilarious thing you’ll see today: The iOS 8 autocomplete song

Having recently capitalized on the disastrous launch of iOS 8.0.1 with one of his timeliest songs of the year, Jonathan Mann is back with another Apple-themed ditty. This one is slightly more obtuse than the update song, but is equally hilarious. Rather than writing a song about the occasionally ridiculous iOS 8 autocomplete feature, one which has been complicit in willfully handing over our passwords, he let the song write itself. More →

Burger King is offering a free Android phone that will be impossible to deliver

With the huge number of Android phones out there, it can admittedly be difficult to keep track of them all. That said, we don’t think we’ve ever seen anything quite like the “free” Android phone that’s being offered by Burger King right now that was flagged by an eagle-eyed Redditor this week. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Jimmy Kimmel and Siri the waitress

Apple has continued to improve its voice-based iOS virtual assistant since launching it a few years ago, but Siri still isn’t perfect and might cause some unexpected headaches. In fact, a recent study from AAA and the University of Utah found that Siri and similar hands-free voice-activated assistants can distract drivers rather than help them while on the road. And Jimmy Kimmel did not miss that opportunity to make fun of Apple’s Siri during Tuesday night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Bendgate

Photos of bent iPhones are popping up all over Instagram – here are the best ones

As if “Bendgate” wasn’t bad enough PR during the rollout of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, or the fact that the iOS 8.0.1 update turned iPhones into bricks, some people thought it would be fun to post pictures of their bent iPhones on Instagram. This seems to be adding to the notion that the new iPhones will bend easily just by putting the phone in your pocket and sitting down too fast, even though Consumer Reports basically debunked that as being “overblown.”

Video: How to fix a bent iPhone 6 Plus (seriously, DO NOT try this at home)

When Apple first unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this month, people knew right away that they were two of the most beautiful smartphones the world had ever seen. At the same time, however, there were a few curious design decisions that raised some eyebrows. One in particular is the protruding camera lens on both phones, which one critic even referred to as “appalling.”

YouTube users PeripateticPandas took the opportunity to release a funny (and frightening) video that shows us one way to fix the iPhone 6’s protruding camera, and now the team is back with a unique solution for “Bendgate.” More →
