T-Mobile is adding Apple Music, ABC and Dish to its unlimited Binge On service

T-Mobile’s Binge On is a convenient loophole that lets customers stream music and video from a long list of providers without it counting against their 4G data limit. The more services that participate in Binge On, the better, so the news that Apple Music, ABC, Disney and a host of other providers are joining today is particularly good.

The announcement today brings the list of participating services up to 100. It’s gone from being a select group of video and music services to a who’s who of online video and music.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active Review

Samsung S7 Active review: I can’t kill this indestructible smartphone

Samsung S7 Active review: I can’t kill this indestructible smartphone

I remember when I first started writing about technology, my boss at the time told me all about how he protected his Nokia N97 by keeping it in a fleece-lined pocket with daily cleanings, just in case the camera accumulated dust or scratches.

I’ve never been remotely that careful with a gadget. My phones have been dropped, scratched, soaked, and for one unlucky handset, immersed in a bucket of paint. Phones like the indestructible Samsung Galaxy S7 Active are phones for people like me.

The iPhone 7 leak we’ve been waiting for still doesn’t solve the biggest mystery

The iPhone 7 leak we’ve been waiting for still doesn’t solve the biggest mystery

By on July 26, 2016 at 11:24 AM.

Can there possibly still be any questions left unanswered after all of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus leaks we’ve seen over the past month or so? As impossible as it might seem, there actually are still several questions that remain unanswered. We know what Apple’s new iPhones will look like and we might even know exactly when they’re set to be released thanks to a big leak earlier this week. But there are some big mysteries that remain, and we’ve been waiting for one leak in particular to arrive so that what is perhaps the biggest iPhone 7 mystery out there might finally be solved.

The good news is that the leak we’ve been waiting for is finally here. The bad news is that unfortunately, it doesn’t bring us any closer to getting answers. More →

This is our best look yet at the iPhone 7

This is our best look yet at the iPhone 7

By on July 26, 2016 at 9:40 AM.

We may very well have reached the peak of the iPhone 7 rumor cycle, Apple fans. At this point, unless just about every reliable Apple source out there has been grossly misguided, we know almost everything there is to know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We know what they’ll look like, we know about a host of new features they’ll likely include, we know about most of the biggest changes compared to this year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and we even probably know exactly when Apple’s new iPhones will be released.

As much as Apple fans already know, however, they still haven’t grown tired of getting early peeks at next-gen iPhone 7 models. And now, a new video gives us what is undoubtedly our best look yet at the upcoming new iPhone 7. More →

The iPhone 8 might use iris scanning to complement Touch ID

You didn’t think we could go an entire summer without stumbling across a potentially sketchy yet oddly intriguing iPhone rumor, did you? A recent report from Digitimes — which has a spotty track record with respect to Apple rumors — claims that a number of smartphone brands, including Apple, are planning to implement advanced iris scanning functionality.

“Samsung is expected to lead all vendors by releasing its new flagship smartphone supporting iris recognition technology in the second half of 2016,” the report claims, “while Apple is likely to roll out new iPhone devices with iris sensors in 2018…”

iPhone 7 Rumors 2016

Here’s what Apple might name the iPhone 7 instead of ‘iPhone 7’

Here’s what Apple might name the iPhone 7 instead of ‘iPhone 7’

It’s a tiny bit amusing that despite everything we know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, there are still some pretty basic things we don’t know.

We know just about exactly what the iPhone 7 is going to look like, and we also know what the larger iPhone 7 Plus will look like. We know the phones will lose the 3.5mm audio port and gain thinner housings with redesigned antenna lines that are much easier on the eyes. We also know that both phones will feature new and improved cameras, though the camera on the Plus model will be a much bigger upgrade than the one on the smaller iPhone 7.

But ironically, we still don’t know one of the most basic things about these two upcoming new phones: We have no idea what they’ll be called. More →

Watch all 8 generations of iPhones burn for your sick satisfaction

Do you know how many poorly-paid workers slaved in dangerous conditions to build these iPhones? Well, it doesn’t matter. Because now they’re going to burn in the name of YouTube views. And you’re going to watch it, you depraved Western consumer.

Ok, so there is actually 1/10th of an amount of reasoning behind this video. It tests which iPhone is the most fireproof, which would be useful if you frequently play Pokemon Go in burning buildings.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro look hotter than ever in new leaked video

By on July 25, 2016 at 10:40 AM.

There sure is a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, especially for a pair of new smartphones that have been deemed by bloggers to be “boring.” We’re seeing just as much interest in Apple’s next-generation models set to debut this September as we did last year ahead of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus release — and as you might recall, that ended up being Apple’s biggest iPhone launch ever, albeit by a narrow margin. With expectations mounting for a massive tenth-anniversary overhaul next year though, Apple’s 2015 launch is going to be difficult to beat in 2016. But even if Apple falls short, it’ll still have the two most popular new smartphones on its hands when they finally debut in about a month and a half.

Of course, you don’t have to wait that long to check out Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. More →

A fresh leak seems to confirm some of these reports, indicating that the Sailfish will have the high-end specs you expect. More →

Galaxy Note 7 to have bigger battery than Note 5 but smaller than Galaxy S7 edge

The Galaxy Note 7 will be unveiled on August 2nd and hit stores in the coming weeks – reports indicate the phone might be available for preorder as soon as Samsung’s Unpacked keynote wraps up. But with a couple of weeks, until the phone become officials, we’re still pounded by a large number of Galaxy Note 7 leaks. The latest one says the phone will have a bigger battery than the Galaxy Note 5, its predecessor. But that’s not necessarily a good thing, given that the phone might have a smaller battery than the Galaxy S7 edge. More →

iPhone 7 Release Date

Apple’s iPhone 7 finally gets a release date

Apple’s iPhone 7 finally gets a release date

It’s time to mark your calendars, folks. According to reputable leaker Evan Blass, Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 7 is set to hit store shelves on Friday, September 16th.

Word of the not-yet-official release date originally came via a tweet from Blass indicating that Apple was going to release the device during the week of September 12. In turn, there was some initial confusion as to whether or not the week of September 12 referred to the product’s unveiling or the actual launch event.
