Someone at Sony actually thought this hideous selfie camera was a good idea

Brazil wants Apple and Google to remotely wipe Secret from all iOS and Android devices

Secret is a popular iOS and Android social networking app that lets users chat anonymously, but authorities in Brazil aren’t too fond of it.

Netflix rails against ISPs even as it agrees to pay off yet another one for better connections

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Tuesday penned an editorial in Wired in which he defended the free Internet and advocated against the FCC’s Net Neutrality proposals, as well as against the Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. But even though Hastings is not afraid to vividly voice his concerns – this isn’t the first time he’s written an editorial on these matters – Netflix was apparently forced to ink its fourth interconnect deal in the U.S. to make sure that TWC broadband subscribers who watch Netflix online get a decent experience.

An ode to turn-by-turn navigation: Making ‘lost’ a foreign concept

Last week, I drove for 11 hours in a vehicle during a single calendar day. I decided to take such an endeavor the evening before, and all told, it took around five minutes to scope out the plan. The morning of, I settled into the adequately posh driver’s seat of a trusty rental car, tossed my iPhone into a Kenu Airframe mount, tapped a few screens, and threw it in drive.

And I knew that absolutely everything was going to be just fine. More →

Great news: The next-gen iPad Air might not have miserably wimpy RAM

Specs certainly aren’t everything, but Apple fans should still be relieved to know that the next-generation iPad Air will feature a memory boost up from the 1GB of RAM the first-generation model had. Per MacRumors, Taiwanese publication TechNews is reporting that Apple’s followup to the iPad Air will feature a full 2GB of RAM, which just happens to be the same amount of memory that came with Google’s last Nexus 7 tablet when it was announced more than a year ago.

Google may be working on a version of Glass that you might actually wear

Google Glass is far from being a ready-for-primetime commercial product, and the wearable device may undergo several changes before it’s sold in stores. In fact, it appears Google is trying to make Google Glass look less like it currently does – something some people wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing – and more like an actual pair of ordinary glasses. Glass Almanac discovered a patent for a new Google Glass design that makes the gadget more human-friendly. More →

The most brutal Comcast call yet: Customer gets shuffled through 6 reps, issue remains unfixed

Dixon has posted a customer service call that lasted a brutal one-and-a-half hours in which he was shuffled through a whopping six different customer service representatives, none of whom knew how to solve his problem.

Watch out for this frighteningly smart malware that’s infected over 75,000 jailbroken iPhones

The malware protection that comes with Apple’s walled-off garden is only so good as long as you stay in that confined space, as otherwise hackers will be able to attack you with malicious programs. Specifically, jailbroken iPhones, which can install any iOS app whether it’s approved by Apple or not, are obviously susceptible to malware attacks, and a Virus Bulletin advisory notice details one such malicious program that has infected at least 75,000 iOS devices to date.
