Dell XPS 13 Review: Better Than the MacBook Air

By on July 2, 2015 at 6:30 PM.

“I’ll give you my Mac when you pry it from my cold, dead hands” — might be the mantra of most Mac users. I can say that the new Dell XPS 13 is good enough to pry a MacBook from my — albeit animate — hands. I’ve been using the redesigned 2015 XPS 13 for the last several months and it was surprisingly easy to relegate my MacBook to backup status.

Here in America, we love our friendly neighbors to the north. We don’t always understand everything they say, but we still love them. Canada is a vast and beautiful country full of gorgeous landscapes and forests as far as the eye can see. It’s also full of fun little colloquialisms that can be very quirky to anyone outside of Canada. More →

Life is hard, and it only gets harder. Bad things happen to good people; national governments refuse to treat their citizens with respect; your ex goes Facebook official with someone new just four days after you broke up. The only thing holding our lives together are the simple pleasures, but this week, one of those simple pleasures was taken away.

Apple Music Vs Spotify

Apple Music vs Spotify: A Visual Comparison

Apple Music vs Spotify: A Visual Comparison

By on July 2, 2015 at 4:57 PM.

After months of anticipation, Apple Music is finally out in the wild. Thus far, initial reviews of Apple’s foray into the streaming music business have been largely positive, aside from a few expected software glitches that will hopefully be ironed out in the coming days.

Of course, Apple Music is entering an already saturated market currently dominated by Spotify. What’s more, Spotify, in addition to being beloved by millions of users, has a multi-year head start on Apple Music.

All of this begs the question: How does Apple Music compare to Spotify?

With the launch of Apple Music, plenty of three-month free trial subscribers are anxious to test everything out, but rather than fiddle around with the controls, let us explain exactly how to save music to listen offline. More →

Were You Fooled By Any of the Internet’s Most Famous Hoaxes?

By on July 2, 2015 at 4:07 PM.

There is no faster, more efficient source of news in the modern day than the Internet, but, as you well know, not everyone is interested in telling the truth. In fact, it’s easier than ever for a prank or a hoax to go viral in the age of the Internet, and the more channels we have in which to communicate, the faster this nonsense can spread.

Leak: Will This Unreleased Samsung Phablet Even Fit In Your Pocket?

Leak: Will This Unreleased Samsung Phablet Even Fit In Your Pocket?

By on July 2, 2015 at 3:42 PM.

Samsung wasn’t the first company to launch a smartphone with a supersized screen, but it would be hard to argue that the South Korean smartphone company didn’t popularize the category. Samsung’s Galaxy Note line brought phablets to the mainstream, and phones that would have once been considered massive are now the norm.

Interestingly though, the sleekest and most exciting phablet Samsung has ever made seemingly isn’t a member of the popular Note family. Instead, it looks like Samsung is about to supersize its best-ever flagship phone — but as hot as the new model is shaping up to be, a new leak also suggests it’s going to be huge. More →

By on July 2, 2015 at 3:17 PM.

Windows 7 and Windows 8 users probably know by now that Windows 10 is coming on July 29th – the company did its best to ensure that by providing information prompts and starting reservations. But the actual upgrade, which is going to be available as a free download to consumers (not companies) using one of these two Windows versions, might take a while to reach everyone’s PCs. More →

The Funniest Thing You’ll See Today: Kids Explain Gay Marriage

By on July 2, 2015 at 2:52 PM.

A week ago, the LGBT community scored a major win as the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriages are perfectly constitutional nationwide. Obviously, not everyone is happy about that, with one argument from opponents saying that same-sex marriage is hard to explain to children.

Jimmy Kimmel decided to test that out and asked a bunch of kids to explain gay marriage. The results are hilarious. More →

By on July 2, 2015 at 1:39 PM.

With Apple Music now out of the bag, Chris Johnston of The Guardian recently penned a piece detailing just the myriad of new listening options users can now dive into and enjoy. Without question, Apple Music is Apple’s most ambitious music project to date, and in turn, there’s a completely new UI to learn.

Somewhat strangely, Apple hasn’t really put out an easy to digest cheat sheet laying out how to navigate Apple Music. Thankfully, Johnston steps in and fills in some of these blanks.

Holocaust Hero Who Saved 669 Children and Kept It a Secret for 50 Years Dies at 106

Holocaust Hero Who Saved 669 Children and Kept It a Secret for 50 Years Dies at 106

By on July 2, 2015 at 1:14 PM.

Sir Nicholas Winton has died at age 106. His death comes on the 76th anniversary of his departure from Prague on a train that carried many of the Jewish children whose lives he saved. That train in 1939 carried 241 out of the 669 total children who evaded the Nazi camps where their families were taken to die.

Most people haven’t heard about Winton before, simply because he was very good at keeping his inspiring actions a secret. It wasn’t until 50 years after the events took place that the public at large learned about his heroic acts — and it all happened by chance. More →
