iPhone 6s leak shows new design is thicker than the iPhone 6

With September just around the corner, the number of iPhone 6s component leaks have started picking up. Just this past weekend, photos purporting to showcase iPhone 6s display components leaked online. Originally spotted by Nowhereelse, the components appear to be just slightly different from corresponding iPhone 6 components.  So while the photos in and of themselves don’t provide any insight regarding the Force Touch feature Apple is reportedly incorporating into the next-gen iPhone, previous reports have indicated that Apple’s supply partners have already started manufacturing Force Touch displays.

Even more interesting is a leak which purports to showcase an iPhone 6s prototype out in the wild. Originally published by M.I.C gadgetthe photos were allegedly taken by “old” workers from Foxconn. As expected, the iPhone 6s design is aesthetically similar to the iPhone 6, hardly surprising given that Apple’s ‘s’ upgrades have historically maintained the same exact design as the previous model.

The pay TV scam that’s hiding in plain sight

The pay TV scam that’s hiding in plain sight

By on August 1, 2015 at 11:00 AM.

Services like Netflix are driving U.S. households to cut the cord at an unprecedented rate, and studies suggest that impressive rate won’t be slowing anytime soon. The unbreakable bundles, poor customer service and high cost of pay TV packages has made consumers all too eager to ditch their cable and satellite TV services, so it makes sense that cord cutting has exploded now that entertainment is widely available elsewhere.

As if the reasons to loathe pay TV service providers weren’t already numerous enough, a recent report sheds new light on a scam that cable and satellite TV companies have been pulling for years. And the worst part is that people have known about it all along, they just never realized how bad it was. More →

Comcast Customers FCC Data Cap Complaints

Fed-up customers are hammering ISPs with FCC complaints about data caps

Fed-up customers are hammering ISPs with FCC complaints about data caps

You know what people really don’t like? Data caps. They don’t like them on their mobile phones and they really, really don’t like them on their home Internet services. This hasn’t stopped Comcast and other wireline ISPs from trying to ram them down consumers’ throats anyway, although customer resistance to such caps is so strong that the companies wouldn’t dare roll them out nationwide just yet.

How Trevor Noah plans to shake up The Daily Show

Comedy Central’s nighttime lineup is in the midst of a transformation. First Stephen Colbert left for the bright lights of CBS, and now Jon Stewart, longtime host of The Daily Show, will officially sign off the air on August 6 after an impressive 16 seasons run.

Replacing Stewart as host of The Daily Show — Comedy Central’s most popular program by far — is South African comedian Trevor Noah. In the wake of Noah’s hiring, Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless said that the cable channel opted for Noah out of a desire “to find someone who brings something really exciting and new and different.”

Watch the hilarious cable-bashing Sling TV ad Comcast doesn’t want you to see

Dish’s Sling TV is one of the many options that cord cutters have at their disposal to get their TV fix without paying through the nose for a pricey cable package. It’s also competing for customers with cable companies such as Comcast, who are among the most hated companies in the United States. Dish knows that Comcast, Time Warner Cable and other cable giants have horrible reputations, which is why it’s put together a brilliant new ad the mercilessly bashes cable companies for their service offerings and their dreadful customer service.

Facial Recognition Thermal

The future is here: New face recognition technology can work in the dark

The future is here: New face recognition technology can work in the dark

It’s kind of crazy how quickly face detection and recognition technology managed to push its way into the mainstream. Over the past few years we’ve seen face recognition technology reach desktop photo software like iPhoto and even mass market smartphones from the likes of Samsung. And of course, there are no shortage of stories centering on government agencies who use face recognition technology for identification and surveillance purposes.

Setting the bar even higher, researchers from Germany have reportedly developed a new technology that allows facial recognition software to identify faces even in the dark. Whereas traditional facial recognition software involves the comparison of two photos, both of which must be taken in well-lit environments, the approach German computer scientists came up with involves using a person’s thermal signature.
