Hundreds of millions of people rely on Google for everything from web searches and email to finding directions and scheduling our lives. Call Google “evil” all you want, but the Internet is one of the most important tools of the modern era, and it’s thanks in large part to Google.
But as often as you use the company’s many great services, how well do you really know Google? More →
It’s always entertaining to see what happens when longtime fans of different platforms decide to switch to a rival device and now one longtime iPhone user has posted about his experiences on Reddit of switching to the Galaxy Note 4. Long story short: While he likes some things about the Note 4, he personally cannot wait to switch back to the iPhone next year. More →
What better way to celebrate the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies than to remember all the poor orcs, humans, elves and ents who perished in the previous films? Digg has cobbled together a six-minute recap of every death scene in the original trilogy, from the first battle scene to the fall of Sauron, and it’s pretty remarkable. More →
As most of us assumed would be the case, things are going to get much worse for Sony before they finally start getting better. North Korea is now believed to be responsible for the major hack suffered recently by Sony, and it is thought to be a direct result of Sony Pictures’ now-cancelled movie “The Interview,” starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
New data continues to pour out following the hack, and it is now being reported that more than 50 Sony movie scripts have been leaked. More →
Whether by accident or intentionally, Microsoft published a pro-Office 365 (and anti-Google Apps) post on its blog in the form of a dad’s personal rant against some of his teenaged “knucklehead” son’s life decisions, and it’s actually hilarious.
The company quickly took the post down, however, telling TechCrunch the “blog post was not properly vetted” before going online. Of course, once something is published it’s online forever, and the entire post is still available to read. More →
Yesterday’s post included a huge list of 10 paid iPhone and iPad apps that were all on sale for free for a limited time — and if you hurry, you can still download several of them for free. Today is a new day, however, and we have a fresh list of eight more apps that are regularly worth $41 all together, but each and every one of them is now a free download for a limited time. Want them all? You’d better hurry because these sales could be over at any minute. More →
As you have undoubtedly heard by now, the theatrical release of Sony’s upcoming movie “The Interview” has been cancelled. The film stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, and as you have also undoubtedly heard by now, it paints North Korea in an unflattering light. It also includes a scene where North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, is killed.
That scene has already leaked though, and you can watch it right here.
The United States now believes that North Korea was behind the recent major hack of Sony’s internal networks and the many leaks that followed. Those leaks and the threats from hackers that accompanied them ultimately led to the movie’s cancellation, and now many high-profile people including president Obama and several Hollywood personalities have issued public responses.

It’s the video North Korea doesn’t want you to see. The death scene of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the film The Interview was what prompted hackers to launch an unprecedented cyber attack against Sony Pictures this year. But even though the film was officially cancelled on Wednesday amid threats of violence, that doesn’t mean you can’t watch Kim’s death scene since it was leaked on YouTube earlier this week. More →
After failing to reach objectives this year, at least when it comes to smartphone sales and profits, Samsung appears to be determined to finally reinvent itself. The company has already started working on new handset designs, looking to improve the overall build quality of its smartphones. As it turns out, this may be a process that culminates with next year’s Galaxy S6 flagship, a phone that’s supposed to be designed from the ground up. More →
After launching it in the U.S. as a limited iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature — as it needs certain hardware components to work — Apple Pay has quickly become a success product for the company, surpassing in popularity similar mobile payments solutions that have been available to some smartphone users for years. Unsurprisingly, Apple doesn’t want to limit Apple Pay support to iPhone 6 units sold in the U.S., and the company plans to expand to more regions of the world, including Europe, according to a job listing found by iClarified.

Remember that string of companies like Kozmo.com that popped up in the late 1990s and offered same-day delivery service on thousands of items? The cost of running those operations quickly put them all out of business, but thin margins are Amazon’s specialty and the company just launched a service that puts those old companies to shame.
It’s called Prime Now, and it offers delivery of your order within one hour. More →
