Hate Instagram’s new logo? Here’s how to get the old one back on your iPhone

Facebook-owned Instagram rolled out an updated version of its mobile app earlier this week and it has been making waves ever since. This is the biggest update Instagram has released in quite some time, and it includes a floor to ceiling redesign that users absolutely love. The new look of Instagram’s app is sleek and modern, adopting the flatter look that’s so trendy these days. But Instagram also included a redesigned app icon with its big update, and the Internet absolutely hates it.

Well, if you’re one of the users who can’t stand the look of Instagram’s new app icon, we’ll show you how to get the old one back on your iPhone in just a few seconds, with no jailbreaking or other hacks required. More →

Apple iPhone Production

How Apple’s iPhone slump could cause more problems in the future

How Apple’s iPhone slump could cause more problems in the future

Apple’s recent decline in iPhone sales is bad news for more than just shareholders. A report in the WSJ details the losses being suffered by some of Apple’s biggest component suppliers. While that’s bad news for the manufacturers, it could lead to even worse problems for Apple down the line.

The report makes for dire reading, if you’re an Asian manufacturing magnate: Foxconn, Apple’s long-term assembler, saw its first-quarter profits down 9.2%; Sharp, the screen manufacturer recently bought up by Foxconn, fell into an operating loss, as did the Sony division that makes camera modules. It’s not just Apple — profits for smartphone assemblers and component manufacturers took a dive across the board. But bad times for Apple’s iPhone manufacturers could have serious knock-on problems for iPhone production down the line.

Instagram App Logo Update

A deep dive into the new Instagram logo everyone hates

A deep dive into the new Instagram logo everyone hates

Instagram released a major app update earlier this week for iPhone and Android that brought some user interface changes as well as a major icon design change. Unsurprisingly, Instagram fans freaked out when they saw the logo change. That’s certainly understandable; after so many years of pressing that tiny skeuomorphic image of a Polaroid camera, the new logo is jarring to say the least.

Emoji Pictures

Images of all the new emoji that might be coming soon to your smartphone

Images of all the new emoji that might be coming soon to your smartphone

Typically when a new emoji proposal comes over the wire, it’s not worth diving too deep into because there are no guarantees that the Unicode Consortium will approve any or all of the new suggestions. In the case of a new proposal making waves on Wednesday morning, however, an exception should be made for two reasons:

First, the new emoji set aims to empower women by offering two sets of the same emoji, one male and one female. Second, they’ll almost certainly be approved by the consortium because one of the people behind the new proposal is Google’s Mark Davis, who just so happens to be the president of the Unicode Consortium.

iPhone vs. Android: Which phones are more likely to fail?

For the second consecutive quarter, a study has determined that Apple’s line of iPhones is far more stable than Android handsets. Mobile diagnostics company Blancco Technology Group on Wednesday released the results of an updated study that looks to determine which phones stand up best to the test of time and continue to function without failing.

As was the case with the firm’s last study, Blancco found a huge disparity in reliability when comparing the two platforms. More →

Schedule Uber Future

New free app gives Uber users the most important feature they’ve been missing

New free app gives Uber users the most important feature they’ve been missing

Uber has been a game-changer. Not “game-changer” as in some random startup with an overpaid PR firm claiming its automatic cat feeder is a game-changer. We’re talking about a massively disruptive company that actually changed an entire industry and continues to do so. In areas where Uber is available, users simply open up an app and tell an Uber driver where to meet them. Then they take a ride and get out when it’s done without having to worry about making cash payments or fumbling with a POS system when they arrive at their destination.

There is one key feature that Uber has always been missing though, and now it’s finally available thanks to a great new free iPhone app. More →
