The streaming price wars are coming – and they’re a music fan’s dream come true

There really has never been a better time to be a music fan — particularly if you’re a music fan who loves exploring vast catalogs of music that you won’t find on any top 40 radio stations. Pandora and Spotify have proven to be the two most popular music streaming services so far but there are plenty of competitors that are lining up to take the crown, led by Apple and its newly acquired Spotify rival Beats Music. All this added competition can only mean one thing: Streaming price wars are coming. More →

This incredible heartwarming story shows us how amazing Siri can be

Siri, Google Now and Cortana are the three main voice-based virtual assistants available on competing mobile operating system from Apple, Google and Microsoft, respectively. While there’s fierce competition between them as each company tries to improve its own assistant solution and beat the others, there’s one way these advanced apps can help without necessarily having to be extremely accurate and fast.

For at least one autistic boy, Siri has become a best friend and a virtual companion that has all the time in the world to patiently answer all his queries, one way or another. More →

The 10 best iPhone apps with iOS 8 Notification Center widgets

By on October 20, 2014 at 11:01 AM.

Home screen widget support probably isn’t anywhere near the top of most iPhone and iPad users’ wish lists in terms of missing iOS features, but a vocal minority has been begging for widget functionality ever since Android was first released. As opposed to static icons that are merely shortcuts to apps, home screen widgets offer a variety of additional functionality, namely access to zero-touch information that is updated automatically without any effort needed on the user’s part.

While home screen widgets still haven’t been added to Apple’s mobile platform in iOS 8, the latest version of Apple’s iPhone and iPad OS does finally add widget support to the Today view in Apple’s Notification Center. More →
