Apple's iPhone 7 is going to be so much better than any Android phone...
After all, the year-old iPhone 6s already crushes brand new Android phones
Next week is going to be exceptionally busy, with Apple slated to reveal the iPhone 7 and Sony preparing to announce a slim PS4 alongside a “high-end” PS4. For those of us who cover the worlds of technology and entertainment, it’s important to relieve as much stress as possible the weekend before big events, which is why I’m watching this new Captain America: Civil War blooper reel on repeat.
With Apple working overtime in an effort to attract new subscribers to Apple Music, and steal away users from Spotify in the process, the company has doubled down on artist exclusives as a marketing strategy. Over the past few months, Apple has successfully managed to convince a number of big name artists like Drake and Frank Ocean to release new albums exclusively on Apple Music.
Predictably, Spotify isn’t a fan of Apple’s business strategy and has reportedly begun retaliating against artists who opt to release exclusives on Apple Music. According to a recent report from Bloomberg, artists who get into bed with Apple may discover that their content becomes harder for users to find on Spotify.
Verizon dominated as best overall carrier, according to a testing firm that closely tracks carrier performance data.
Verizon swept all six performance categories, the first time that’s been done since RootMetrics began testing the entire U.S. market in 2013, the firm said this week.
Sprint and T-Mobile both recently released unlimited data plans that aren’t actually unlimited — you can use a whole bunch of data, but you are limited to streaming SD-quality video and slow speeds for gaming. As part of a new plan that Sprint is offering you can now pay $20 a month more to stream video in full HD and game faster.
This plan is called Unlimited Freedom Premium, which pretty much goes to show that Sprint didn’t understand the meaning of the word “Unlimited” in the first place.

If there is a viral late night talk show segment more consistent than Carpool Karaoke, I haven’t seen it. Month in and month out, Late Late Show host James Corden continues to send the internet into a frenzy with his latest celebrity guest, from artists such as Gwen Stefani and Adele to First Lady Michelle Obama.
This week’s guest: Britney Spears. Although each and every one of the guests has been greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm, Britney Spears brings more nostalgia with her than anyone who has ever appeared on the segment before.
Truth be told, no one really knows whether or not features like “Night Mode” actually help you sleep better at night. Although the jury is still out, there’s no question that reducing the amount of blue light cast be your smartphone’s display is easier on the eyes in the dark. Apple introduced its “Night Shift” feature in iOS 9, allowing users to automatically or manually cut out a configurable amount of blue light from their screens. Google’s newly released Android 7.0 Nougat operating system has a similar feature baked in, but for some reason Google decided to keep the feature hidden in its new release.
Of course, you knew that third-party developers Android developers wouldn’t let this sweet new feature stay hidden for long. More →

It’s been only a few days since Uber announced that it’s bringing a fleet of (supervised) self-driving cars to Pittsburgh. But in true internet fashion, we’ve already got our first pictures.
Helen Rosner, the executive editor of Eater, spotted what looks like an Uber car on the road in Pittsburgh. The Uber logos along the side hint that it might just be an Uber car, and the mass of sensors strapped to the roof suggest that this isn’t your average Uber car.
The best MacBook Pro money can buy right now is amazing. But it still can’t offer you the kind of gaming experience you expect from a computer, and the same goes for virtual reality. Apple might be exploring VR right now, and it’s likely that future MacBook Pros will have better graphic cards so they can handle more complex programs and games. But any existing MacBooks won’t be eligible for upgrades – after all, these are laptops.
To fix that, one company has come up with a device that aims to give any laptop, including MacBooks, a huge boost: Meet the Wolfe.
As popular as Pokemon Go has become, it’s always been equally obtuse. Without spending a significant amount of time doing research on the internet, you probably wouldn’t know how to catch a Pikachu as your starter, how to determine the power levels of your creatures or how to decipher the new appraisal feature.
Another question that most trainers have: how do I know when a Pokemon is going to spawn? You’re obviously less likely to find a Blastoise than you are a Pidgey, but what are the actual spawn rates for each individual Pokemon?
We finally have the answers, thanks to some dedicated fans.
Rumor has it that Apple is working on a pair of truly wireless earbuds to sell alongside the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which will ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. That may or may not happen, but guess what: Samsung already sells truly wireless earbuds. They’re called the Samsung Gear IconX Cordfree Fitness Earbuds with Activity Tracker, they come in three different colors, and they’re available to purchase right now on Amazon. More →
