This newscaster was completely serious with his insane explanation of why Amazon stock skyrocketed

By on July 27, 2015 at 12:25 PM.

Last week, shares of Amazon shot up 100 points following news that the online retailer had actually (gasp!) generated a profit during its second fiscal quarter. As a result, Amazon’s market cap, for the first time in history, surpassed that of Walmart’s.

While it remains to be seen how long Amazon’s shares remain at all-time high levels, one newscaster from KTVN Channel 2 in Las Vegas presented a wild theory, on-air no less, attempting to explain how Amazon managed to leapfrog Walmart in terms of overall value. More →

Android Security Flaw

950 million Android users at risk as researcher uncovers massive security flaw

950 million Android users at risk as researcher uncovers massive security flaw

By on July 27, 2015 at 11:35 AM.

A security researcher has recently uncovered a worrisome new Android exploit which allows hackers to compromise a device simply by sending either an MMS message or a multimedia file. Once a device has been targeted and infected, hackers can access a user’s microphone, camera, external storage, and in some cases (depending on the device in question), even gain root access.

Initially discovered by Joshua Drake from the security firm Zimperium, the exploit takes advantage of a number of vulnerabilities found within the software framework Android uses to “process, play and record multimedia files.”

Is Apple releasing 3 new iPhones this year? New report says it wanted to

There’s a lot of back and forth on the iPhone 6c rumor, and a new report seems to indicate that Apple may have indeed planned three new iPhones for a fall 2015 launch… but then decided to stick with just two of them. However, a new 4-inch iPhone with updated internal components that would launch alongside the iPhone 6s family — often dubbed as the iPhone 6c — might still be in the works. More →

Boeing 777’s insane landing in a 75MPH windstorm is almost too unnerving to watch

By on July 27, 2015 at 10:20 AM.

If you thought turbulence can be a scary during flights, then you probably haven’t experienced a windstorm landing. The pilots of a commercial Boeing 777 airplane skillfully landed the aircraft a few days ago in the Netherlands in the middle of these terrifying conditions, facing winds of up to 75 miles per hour in what has been deemed the area’s worst storm in 100 years.

10 new jailbreak tweaks that are so cool, they’re actually making me a little jealous

By on July 27, 2015 at 9:55 AM.

Last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the most powerful iPhones the world has ever seen. They positively pulverized quad- and octa-core Android rivals in a number of key performance tests, and they pushed Apple’s iPhone sales to an all-time high in the holiday quarter. iOS 8 makes great use of all that power, having brought a wide range of new features to the iOS platform that make it Apple’s most capable mobile platform to date.

As great as iOS 8 is — and as great as iOS 9 is shaping up to be — there are still plenty of great features that only iPhone owners who jailbreak their phones have access to. More →

How to uninstall Flash on your computer and make the Internet a better place

Ugh. Flash. The technology that just about everyone hates and that still just won’t die. While Flash is in its last throes out now that YouTube, Twitch and Mozilla’s Firefox browser have moved away from it, plenty of other websites still use it to deliver both video and games, among other things. Now a new movement called Occupy Flash has started up to get web users to give Flash one final big push over the cliff by uninstalling it on their computer or disabling it in their browsers. More →

5 Gmail hacks you shouldn’t have to live another day without

5 Gmail hacks you shouldn’t have to live another day without

By on July 27, 2015 at 9:05 AM.

If you’re old enough to remember what email was like before Google came along and launched Gmail, you know just how impressive and capable Google’s email product really is. If you’re not old enough to remember, consider yourself lucky. Email was an overcomplicated, overpriced mess until Gmail introduced a free service with a huge amount of storage, and the rest of the market scrambled to compete.

Today, Gmail packs even more features than it ever has before while still maintaining a very simple overall feel. As is the case with any software, however, a few simple tweaks and hacks can provide some great improvements that many users will wonder how they ever lived without. More →

After previous Galaxy Note 5 leaks claimed the handset will have an auto-ejecting S Pen stylus, a new series of images seems to contradict that rumor. The pictures suggest the new phablet will rely on the same type of stylus ejection as its predecessors: You’ll have to take it out manually whenever you need to use it. More →

By on July 27, 2015 at 7:45 AM.

Despite reports that Apple Watch sales have been lukewarm, Apple CEO Tim Cook emphatically dismissed such claims during the company’s earnings conference call last week. Not only have Apple Watch sales exceeded Apple’s internal projections, but early sales of the device have already surpassed early iPhone and iPod sales.

“And we were able to do that with having only 680 points of sale,” Cook further explained.

Well, Apple Watch availability is about to change in a major way.

After a number of delays, it finally appears that Intel’s long-anticipated Skylake processors will be ready for mainstream production later this fall. As a quick refresher, much of the hype surrounding Skylake is due to the fact that Intel’s next-gen processors promise to be not just more powerful than Broadwell, but significantly more power efficient as well.
