In an interview with The New York Times this week, Donald Trump made it very clear that he’s not 100% sure what the word cyber means or how to use it in a sentence. It was the most laughable moment in an interview full of them, so I decided to notch up the ridiculousness a few degrees by replacing every mention of the word “cyber” with some form of the word “Pokémon.”
As anyone who’s even a little familiar with Pokemon will known, the goal of Pokemon Go is to catch as many Pokemon creatures as you can. And if you think that it might not take too long to find every single character, then you’d be dead wrong. There are no less than 151 animals in the game that you have to discover and add to your Pokedex. You might not be able to catch every single Pokemon you spot, but there’s a long list of animals to hunt before you can consider yourself a Pokemaster.
Almost everybody knows Pikachu, who is one of the first characters you can catch if you’re familiar with Pokemon Go tricks, but there are plenty of other animals, each one with its own unique story. If you’re looking to meet them all but you can’t be bothered to actually hunt them down in the game, there are a couple of sites you should visit. More →
Typically, the impending release of a new iPhone model focuses on whatever cool and exciting new features Apple has in the works. The iPhone 7, though, is a bit different. In fact, it’s not unreasonable to say that the upcoming unveiling of the iPhone 7 has been marked by controversy more than anything else.
According to a number of credible reports, Apple’s next-gen smartphone will ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. And while Apple isn’t shy about discarding popular technologies to the curb, the 3.5mm headphone jack has effectively been around for more than 100 years and is as reliable and durable as it is universal.

Not a day has gone by in the past few weeks that hasn’t brought new iPhone 7 leaks with it. “Boring” or not, Apple’s next-generation iPhones represent the most hotly anticipated new consumer electronics launch of 2016. Companies out in China have gotten their hands on leaked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro schematics, and they’ve been building dummy units in nearby factories ever since. Of course, each new look at these iPhone 7 mockups makes fans even more excited for Apple’s upcoming launch in September.
While you were fast asleep last night, two hot new iPhone 7 leaks surfaced. One shows us a hands-on video comparison of a rose gold iPhone 7 mockup and an iPhone 6s so we can check out all the subtle differences. Then the second is a photo that gives us our best look yet at the larger iPhone 7 Plus/Pro model’s most talked about new feature. More →
A few days ago, we told you that a few bright developers managed to pull location data out of Pokemon Go and turn it into a Google Maps-based tool that could tell you where Pokemon pop up near your location. Although anyone could use it, the hack required quite a bit of tinkering to make it work, and even some light coding, which made it somewhat difficult for most people to use.
However, since then, someone put all that data into one handy and very user-friendly tool that can be used to discover Pokemon near your location. All you have to do is load a website and you should see Pokemon appear around you on a map.
Yesterday was a big day for fans of Marvel’s Netflix series. Not only did the two companies reveal the first (not so great) teaser for The Defenders, they also revealed that Daredevil would be getting a third season and showed off brand new trailers for two highly anticipated shows: Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
Google is going to launch two new Nexus smartphones this year, codenamed Marlin and Sailfish. The company has yet to make them official, but a variety of reports from solid sources have revealed just about everything there is to know about them. The phones are supposed to share the same set of high-end hardware, which could make the 2016 Nexus handsets real flagship killers, and they’re expected to share the same design as well.
While we did see renders based on some of the recent leaks, actual photos of the smartphones were not featured in previous reports. However, that’s about to change, as a new image might show us one of the upcoming smartphones for the first time. More →
After learning just how much data Windows 10 might be collecting from users, France’s National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) has ordered Microsoft to comply with the French Data Protection Act and “stop collecting excessive data and tracking browsing by users without their consent” within three months.
We’re not exactly sure how you’re supposed to pronounce “Mixcder,” but we are sure of one thing: this company managed to make some killer headphones at a shockingly low price. The Mixcder ShareMe Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Over Ear Headphones have a 4.1-star rating on Amazon from more than 425 customer reviews, and they sound just as good as Beats wireless headphones for a small fraction of the price. They also have a very cool feature called ShareMe that lets two pairs of headphones listen to the exact same audio wirelessly.
Best of all, we’ve got a special coupon code that knocks $6 off the $35.99 selling price to drop these puppies to just $29.99. More →
Look, if we’re being honest with ourselves we can admit that the past few Marvel movies have been… not great. They’re all still wonderfully entertaining thanks to huge budgets and compelling characters, but I’d wager that there aren’t many people out there who would argue that Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America movies have been getting better as they progress. That noticeable decline is one of the reasons I’m so excited for The Defenders, an upcoming new Netflix exclusive show that will combine the stories of four characters from the Marvel universe similar to what we’ve seen in The Avengers.
But the first teaser trailer Marvel just release didn’t pique my interest — it just made me angry. More →
The Pokemon Go craze is far from over, with Niantic ready to launch the game in one of the most important markets when it comes to Pokemon-mania. Rumored to get access to Pokemon Go a few days ago, Japan had to wait a few more days for the insanely addictive game to become available in the App Store and Google Play. But on Friday Niantic finally opened the gates. Just as expected, Pokemon Go servers went down quickly, as hordes of players downloaded the game. And, just as anticipated, the Japanese version of the game has a feature you can’t get yet: advertising. More →
