Apple’s new iPad Pro is a terrific tablet, but you’re going to pay a huge premium if you choose to snag the latest iOS slate.

For this week only on Amazon, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6″ 16 GB Wifi (Black) is just $199.99 with free Prime shipping. More →

OnePlus 3 Price Specs

OnePlus 3 could be even cheaper than last year’s ‘flagship killer’

OnePlus 3 could be even cheaper than last year’s ‘flagship killer’

One of the phones Android fans are dying to see in stores this year is the OnePlus 3, the next-gen reasonably priced flagship handset. The phone is expected to pack high-end hardware putting it on par with current flagships from the competition. If rumors are correct, then one OnePlus 3 version might be better than this year’s Galaxy S7 and HTC One 10, at least when it comes to specs. But a new report reveals one more interesting detail about the handset, its price. Apparently, this year’s OnePlus flagship might be even cheaper than its predecessor. More →

Tesla says Model X will let you ‘literally survive a military grade bio attack’

Is the Tesla Model X’s “Bioweapon Defense Mode” just a cheesy gimmick feature that the company added to the car to make it sound more futuristic? Tesla swears it isn’t, and it’s got some new data to prove it. In a blog post on Monday, Tesla said that it had recently conducted some tests on the Model X’s air filtration system and said the results show that “you can literally survive a military grade bio attack by sitting in your car.” More →

iPhone Security

Court forces woman to provide fingerprint to unlock her iPhone

Court forces woman to provide fingerprint to unlock her iPhone

Earlier this year, the FBI and Apple found themselves embroiled in a contentious legal dispute regarding the locked iPhone of Syed Farook, one of the San Bernardino terrorists. Unable to access the device, the FBI wanted Apple to create a tailor-made version of iOS that would circumvent built-in iOS security measures. Apple, meanwhile, vehemently refused, with Tim Cook even stating that the FBI wanted Apple to create the “software equivalent of cancer.”

Eventually, the FBI managed to access Farook’s locked iPhone after purchasing a hack from an anonymous third-party. And so while Apple’s specific dispute with the FBI seemingly resolved itself, the broader issues the case raised still persist and will undoubtedly assume the public spotlight again.

Tim Cook Defends Apple

Tim Cook defends Apple, teases exciting new products in the pipeline

Tim Cook defends Apple, teases exciting new products in the pipeline

Apple’s earnings report last week saw the company report a year over year decline in profits for the first time since 2003. The biggest contributing factor to the decline, not surprisingly, is that year over year iPhone sales dropped by 16%. Notably, Apple’s most recent quarter marks the first time iPhone sales declined in company history.

Consequently, the usual contingent of pundits and analysts have come out of the woodwork, all exclaiming that we’ve reached ‘peak iPhone’ and that Apple at this point has nowhere to go but down. In an effort to inject a bit of good news and all-around optimism to a particularly negative Apple news cycle, Tim Cook earlier today appeared on CNBC with Jim Cramer where the Apple CEO teased that the company has some interesting and innovative items in the product pipeline.

“We’ve got great innovation in the pipeline,” Cook said to Cramer. “New iPhones that will incentivize you and other people that have iPhones today to upgrade to new iPhones. We are going to give you things you can’t live without that you just don’t know you need today. That has always been the objective at Apple, to do things that really enrich people’s lives. That you look back on and you wonder, how did I live without this.”

Watch Barack Obama roast Donald Trump then drop the mic in his final Correspondents’ Dinner

If there’s one thing to look forward to every year, regardless of whether you follow politics or favor the sitting president, that’s the Correspondents’ Dinner. That goes double for a president’s final event – and probably triple when Donald Trump as one of the main contenders to take over the oval office.

That said, President Barack Obama’s last Correspondents’ Dinner was a show to watch: We’ve got plenty of hilarious jokes and segments, we’ve got a good Trump roast, and there’s even a mic drop at the end. More →

Radiohead Erases Its Online Presence

Why did Radiohead erase itself from the internet?

Why did Radiohead erase itself from the internet?

U.K. band Radiohead are known for doing things unconventionally, but they’re also incredibly shrewd marketers who know how to build up hype for themselves and their music. Roughly nine years ago, for example, the bank shocked the world by announcing that fans could pay whatever they wanted for the album In Rainbows that was released directly over the band’s website. Now it seems Radiohead is engaging in another zany stunt to promote its upcoming ninth studio album by completely erasing its presence online. More →

New rumor claims iPhone 7 will finally get a bigger battery

I love the iPhone 6s… but as I’ve said many times, its battery does leave something to be desired, especially now that companies like HTC are releasing phones that purportedly have two-day batteries. So will the iPhone 7 deliver and give me a larger battery after the iPhone 6s had a smaller battery than its predecessor? A new report suggests that it will… but only by a little bit. More →

Nasty piece of Android malware monitors texts, browser history and banking information

There’s a new piece of nasty Android malware floating around that Android users should be on the lookout for. Masquerading as a update for Google’s mobile Chrome browser, the malware is hosted on webpages designed to look like they are official Google or Android landing pages.

Originally spotted by the security firm Zscaler, the malware is designed to monitor call logs, browser history, text messages and banking information. Once installed, the malware logs the aforementioned data and sends it all back to a remote command and control server. What’s more, Zscaler notes that the malware is capable of checking if a user has any antivirus apps installed, and if so, “terminating them to evade detection.”

Sleek aluminum flash drive stores your data in style

We’re not sure if something like a flash drive can ever really be considered “cool,” but if ever there was a flash drive worthy of that categorization it’s probably the Transcend 64GB JetFlash 710 USB 3.0/3.1 Flash Drive. This little memory drive is smaller than an SD card and it can fit on a key chain without adding any weight or bulk at all. It’s also made out of aluminum and features a nice sleek design. Oh, and did we mention it only costs $20? More →
