By on April 17, 2014 at 11:00 AM.

Siri is getting a lot of competition from Google Now and Microsoft’s Cortana these days, but some young hackers have just made Siri much more useful, even if they did so without Apple’s permission. Engadget draws our attention to GoogolPlex, a new hack for Siri developed by a quartet of freshmen at the University of Pennsylvania that lets you use Apple’s voice-enabled personal assistant to adjust the temperature on your Nest thermostat or to shuffle through your Spotify playlist.

Galaxy S5 Vs HTC One M8

Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One (M8): Which is the best Android phone in the world?

Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One (M8): Which is the best Android phone in the world?

By on April 17, 2014 at 10:10 AM.

For smartphone fans around the world, things really started to get interesting over the past couple of months. First, Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone in late February, revealing a smartphone that was quite impressive and touted a number of great new features, but failed to live up to the hype stirred up by dozens of rumors. Then, HTC unveiled its own flagship phone, the HTC One (M8), and launched it the very same day.

We called HTC’s new handset the best Android phone on the planet when we published our in-depth HTC One (M8) review. But now HTC’s flagship handset finally has some serious competition in the Galaxy S5.

The new M8 and Samsung’s Galaxy S5 went on sale within weeks of each other and there is little question that these two smartphones are the best all-around Android phones in the world at the moment. But when it comes to wearing the crown, there can be only one.

So, which next-generation flagship smartphone is the best in the business right now? More →

Apple is getting ready to release iOS 7.1.1 to fix multiple bugs

By on April 17, 2014 at 9:45 AM.

Have you noticed some annoying bugs that cropped up after you installed iOS 7.1 onto your smartphone or tablet? Don’t worry, because apparently Apple has as well. 9to5Mac notices that several visits to its website from around Apple’s campus in Cupertino, Calif. have come from devices running on iOS 7.1.1, which 9to5Mac says is a new update to iOS 7.1 that Apple is testing out to address multiple bugs in iOS 7.1. 9to5Mac also says that there has been a noticeable uptick in iOS 7.1.1 visits in recent days, which likely means the bug fix update will come over-the-air to iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches in the near future.”

If there’s one thing more annoying than passwords, it’s CAPTCHA puzzles that websites use to screen out robots from registering for accounts. However, Google has just developed a new algorithm that’s able to read its own CAPTCHA puzzles with 99% accuracy, which is obviously a problem since CAPTCHA puzzles are designed to be used by humans only.

More evidence that T-Mobile is putting a scare in the wireless industry

By on April 17, 2014 at 8:10 AM.

It used to be that Verizon and AT&T could happily divvy up new subscribers every quarter while perpetual losers T-Mobile and Sprint would see their subscriber numbers shrink.
