Watch: Conan ruthlessly trashes the Apple Watch

As opposed to JJ Abrams or, say, Pharrell, Conan O’Brien sidekick Andy Richter wasn’t bestowed with a pre-release Apple Watch. Still, that didn’t stop the comedian from pretending he had one during a decently funny segment on Conan.

Want cheaper Netflix? Then pirate more movies

Here’s something we get the feeling that Netflix CFO David Wells will regret admitting publicly. TorrentFreak notices that during Netflix’s earnings call this week, Wells admitted that Netflix will offer cheaper service in countries that have high rates of piracy since it wouldn’t make sense to offer an expensive service in markets where people are already used to stealing content over the web.

These Kickstarters want to fix the biggest complaint about the new Retina MacBook

The Retina MacBook is a remarkable piece of engineering, but the 12-inch ultra-slim computer does have one feature that’ll annoy many computer users: The single USB-C port that’s supposed to be used for both charging the battery and connecting peripherals. However, you won’t be able to do all these things at once without purchasing additional accessories. Apple already stocks a few models, but you might be better off looking at Kickstarter for a better solution, as there already are some products looking to fix the USB-C problem. More →

T-Mobile Vs. Verizon Vs. AT&T Customers

T-Mobile’s incredible recent success comes with one major asterisk

T-Mobile’s incredible recent success comes with one major asterisk

There is no doubt that T-Mobile has had an incredible run of success over the last year and a half. However, there’s some real question about who T-Mobile’s success has been hurting the most — for while the “Uncarrier” loves to portray itself as the scourge of Verizon and AT&T, those two mega-carriers have not been losing subscribers or hemorrhaging money. Instead, it seems that T-Mobile’s gains have come at the expense of smaller prepaid wireless carriers. More →

Samsung finally reveals how much it will cost to replace your Galaxy S6 battery

The brand new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are arguably the best Android smartphones the world has ever seen at this point, but nothing it perfect and that obviously holds true in this case.
