Obama comes out swinging against North Korea, says Sony made a ‘mistake’ pulling the film

President Barack Obama on Friday had tough words not only for North Korea — which earlier in the day had been named by the FBI as the chief culprit in the massive hack of Sony Pictures — but also for Sony itself. In particular, Obama said that he thinks Sony “made a mistake” by pulling the film from theaters in response to threats it had received from hackers tied to the North Korean government. More →

The iPhone 6 can take stunning pictures, but that doesn’t mean the phone will do all the work for you. BostInno has put together a list of 10 essential tricks that pro photographers use to make sure their iPhones take first-rate pictures and while some are pretty obvious — most of us know to hold our phones horizontally at this point and to not use the pinch-to-zoom function unless it’s completely necessary — others really caught our attention as things we’ve never thought of before.

Obama is holding a news conference to discuss North Korea’s Sony hack – watch live right here

By on December 19, 2014 at 1:15 PM.

North Korea hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s deep investigation into the cyber attack has determined as much, and the U.S. government confirmed it publicly on Friday morning. You can read the FBI’s full statement right here. North Korea’s attack on Sony Pictures is believed to be a direct result of the studio’s upcoming movie “The Interview,” which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as two journalists who conspire to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

The theatrical release of “The Interview” has now been cancelled as Sony continues to comply with several of the North Korean hackers’ demands in an attempt to prevent them from leaking additional documents that were stolen in the hack.

Now, President Barack Obama is holding a news conference to address the Sony hack and the FBI’s findings. More →

Businessweek trolls BlackBerry in the most brutal way imaginable

The BlackBerry Classic is definitely something of a throwback to old BlackBerry Bold models, although it definitely features much better specs and software than those smartphone relics. However, Bloomberg Businessweek has just posted a “hands on” article about the Classic that brutally trolls the device by showing it being held by a pair of bony skeletal hands, as you can see in the picture above. The message is clear: The Classic feels ancient and dead. More →

The 10 best video games of 2014

By on December 19, 2014 at 12:18 PM.

The first full year of the new generation is coming to a close. After much deliberation, I’ve settled on the ten games that stood out above all of the rest. These were the games that delighted me in 2014 — the games that I kept returning to, the ones I kept thinking about even after I’d put them back on the shelf.

I didn’t have a chance to play every game released this year, so if your favorite game didn’t make this list, it’s probably not because I hated it — I just didn’t get around to playing it.

New report slams Apple for ‘broken promises’ on sweatshop labor
