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.
Apple’s iPhone lineup is powered by iOS, which is known for a number of things.

But stable though it may be, there are still some common problems that can be incredibly bothersome if they affect your iPhone, so we do our best to show you how to fix your phone and enjoy smooth sailing whenever possible.

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.
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.

As if the idea of launching a 24/7 live radio station alongside Apple Music wasn’t a big enough deal for Apple, the company had to secure an interview with Eminem as well during the first week of Beats 1 being on the air. In a baffling twist, Stephen Colbert managed to get his own ridiculous Eminem interview online first, but Zane Lowe’s is still worth a listen.
Google’s self-driving cars look ridiculous by today’s standards. They’re tiny, the design is peculiar and the shape is odd. But those funny-looking cars are the future, and that future is going to arrive sooner than you might think.
While Google has been reasonably open during the development of its new autonomous car technology, the company’s specific plans for these cars remain a mystery. However, new claims from a venture capitalist may have just pulled back the curtain on Google’s plans, and they may be even more ground-breaking than we thought. More →
A tragic accident took place at a Volkswagen plant in Germany, where a robot killed a man while he was working. That’s something you rarely hear on the news, and something you might not pay particular attention to considering that reports on fatal accidents are a common thing in the media.
But what happens when “Sarah O’Conner” tweets about a robot killing a Man? More →
To stream Apple Music over cellular data or not to stream Apple Music over cellular data… that is the question. iPhone users who are on unlimited data plans, or don’t really care about data overages, might not be interested in how much data Apple Music consumes on a 3G or 4G connection. But this will be an important detail for many prospective Apple Music subscribers, and it might help them choose between becoming a paying customer or sticking to streaming Beats 1 and other radio stations that are available free of charge.

In this week’s episode of The BGR Show podcast, I’m joined by Zachary Epstein the Third. Apple Music is finally here — and we’re loving it.
Quick note: I thoroughly apologize for my microphone audio. When we were recording, it used my iMac microphone and not my Neumann, and I am embarrassed. This isn’t an accurate representation of the podcast experience for The BGR Show, and I hope you can one day forgive me for this egregious error. More →
