2016 Thunderbolt Display Upgrade

Is Apple killing the Thunderbolt Display?

Is Apple killing the Thunderbolt Display?

By about 12 hours ago.

It’s official, folks! Starting Thursday, the Thunderbolt Display won’t be available in Apple stores, including online and retail locations. Sure, you’ll be able to snatch one up as long as supply lasts, but Apple confirmed that it’s not making more. The news isn’t necessarily surprising, considering the various rumors that preceded WWDC 2016, suggesting that Apple will unveil a more exciting Thunderbolt monitor at the show. Those reports were quickly shot down, and Apple focused on software during the event, without announcing any sort of new hardware upgrades.

What’s interesting about Apple’s announcement is that the company did not quietly announce an upgrade. Instead, Apple is currently proposing buyers alternatives from competing computer monitor makers.

‘What happens if we leave EU?’ search spike shows people have no idea what they voted on Brexit day

As unfathomable it may have seemed to some, the Brexit is happening. The United Kingdom decided that it’s time to leave the European Union and be on its own again – well it’s not exactly on its own as there are a bunch of countries in it. However, it looks like many people have no idea what they voted in the Brexit referendum on Thursday. Or better said, according to a recent spike in search traffic, many people don’t understand what it means to leave the EU after the vote. That’s after so many experts from both sides tried to explain it in the months leading to this crucial vote. More →

Gifts For Expecting Moms

The best gift you can give any expectant mother

The best gift you can give any expectant mother

Mother’s Day may have come and gone, but there’s never a bad time to surprise an expectant mother with a thoughtful gift. She’s stressed, she’s tired and she’s nervous, so why not surprise her with a thoughtful, unexpected present?

The Lil’ Elephant Heartbeat Bear Kit makes the perfect gift. It hides a little heart-shaped recorder that mom can bring to her doctor’s office and use to record up to 20 seconds of her baby’s heartbeat during an ultrasound. Then once it’s placed inside the stuffed elephant, a simple squeeze will replay the heartbeat. Trust us, she’s going to love it, and if elephants aren’t her thing there are other animals available including a bear, a hippo and a monkey. More →

Samsung Notebook 7 Spin vs MacBook

It’s crazy how much trouble Samsung has with design

It’s crazy how much trouble Samsung has with design

You’d think that a company as big as Samsung would have all it takes to come up with great products from top to bottom, inside and out – Samsung doesn’t control any of the software other than Tizen though, so we’re just talking about hardware design. It turns out it’s still tough for Samsung’s designers to come up with a product that people will want to buy the minute they lay their eyes on it. We’ve touched on this before when looking at the Galaxy S6’s asymmetry last year, and now we’re about to check out the device above, the brand new Notebook 7 Spin. More →

Tale of the tape: Why Mark Zuckerberg is smart to cover his webcam

Webcam security was thrust into the spotlight this week when a photo of Mark Zuckerberg appeared to show the camera and microphone on his MacBook covered with tape.

The photo, which was posted on Facebook to celebrate Instagram hitting 500 million followers, sparked plenty of interest. While some worried about the broader effectiveness of Facebook’s security, many see the tape as a shrewd defense against potential hackers. More →

Banks are killing the password, and they can thank the iPhone for that

Banks are killing the password, and they can thank the iPhone for that

Many distinct entities are looking to kill the password, or replace it with better, more secure ways of logging into several online services. Banks are among them, and it’s easy to understand why. They want to protect their money. In light of the many security breaches that have put at risk the identities and online assets of millions of users, banks are encouraging customers to sign up for in-app biometric authentication methods. Scanning a fingerprint, the eye, or recording voice is a lot easier, and more secure, than logging into online banking services using credentials that hackers can steal or social engineer. And the iPhone is a big reason why banks are looking to kill the password. More →

Video: This mini electric car just smashed the 0-60 MPH world record

Tesla likes to boast that it only knows how to make fast cars. And with good reason, the Tesla Model S in Ludicrous Mode can go from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars by acceleration on the planet. Ranked slightly above Tesla are an assortment of cars from Porsche, Bugatti and Ferrari, with the Porsche 918 Spyder boasting the fastest 0-60 time for a production car in history with a blazing 2.2 seconds.

Well, there’s no a new record holder for the 0-60 title and it comes from an unlikely place: a motorsport student club in Switzerland.

This ultra-wide curved 34-inch monitor is the stuff dreams are made of

Sometimes you see something online and you instantly fall in love with it. Then, you see the price tag and your dream is instantly shattered. $1,000 actually isn’t a terrible price for a high-quality big curved PC display like the LG Electronics UltraWide 34UC88-B 34″ Screen LED-lit Monitor, but it’s still a pretty tall order for most shoppers. Of course, take that same high-quality screen and knock the price down to $799, and it’s a whole new ball game. More →

Inferno Trailer: Dan Brown Movie

Damn, the trailer for Tom Hanks’ new ‘Da Vinci’ movie is intense

Damn, the trailer for Tom Hanks’ new ‘Da Vinci’ movie is intense

I wasn’t the greatest fan of the first two Dan Brown movies. Maybe there was too much expectation around the movie version of a blockbuster book, all featuring Tom Hanks, but it didn’t really pan out.

Years after The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons came out, Professor Langdon is back, and this time, things are getting real.
