Why Android 6.0 Marshmallow is an even bigger deal than Google’s letting on

Both iOS 9 and Android 6.0 Marshmallow have been tagged as incremental upgrades that are mostly looking to add stability improvements without overwhelming us with new features.

I’m constantly surprised by how few issues I’ve run into since upgrading to Windows 10, but despite its relative stability, there are still a few things I’d change if I had the ability to do so.

Google Chrome drives another nail in Flash’s coffin

Ding, dong, Adobe Flash is almost dead! With execs at major tech companies calling for Adobe to set a firm death date for Flash, Google has taken a more proactive step to push Flash into its grave. Ars Technica informs us that starting on September 1st, Google’s Chrome browser will start auto-blocking any ads that use Flash as their programming language. Videos that use Flash will still work on Chrome, however any “non essential” bits of Flash will be blocked. More →

The best new feature on the iPhone 6s may have just been confirmed in iOS 9 code

In less than two weeks, Apple will hold its annual new iPhone launch event, with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus being the obvious stars of the show. The keynote is also supposed to bring several other announcements covering various other new Apple products. Many reports have so far suggested different specs and features that will supposedly be included in the new iPhones, and leaked images and videos have also shown purported iPhone 6s components.

Like each iPhone generation to date, the new iPhone will have one defining new feature, and it may have just been confirmed in existing iOS 9 code. More →

New free iPhone app will change the way you use email – watch the video if you don’t believe us

By on August 27, 2015 at 10:52 AM.

If I had a dollar for every time a company emailed me with news of a “revolutionary” app or product that will “change the way” people do whatever it is this particular thing addresses, I would be retired on a beach somewhere right now. But alas, I’m sitting in my office with an inbox full of annoying PR pitches instead. Every once in a while, however, something crosses my desk that actually does deliver on the lofty claims posed by the public relations firm that emails me, and such is the case with a new free iPhone app that was just released on Thursday.

Does iOS have a bloatware problem?

Does iOS have a bloatware problem?

By on August 27, 2015 at 10:06 AM.

When it comes to tech coverage, Forbes is generally a pretty mixed bag. The site publishes content from a huge number of contributors, some of whom know their stuff, and some of whom are great for some comic relief and little else.

On Wednesday morning, I read a post on Forbes that fell into the former category. It was a nice quick post about Android bloatware, and it explained why future Android devices may have less of it. The post was well written, made a few good points, and offered a good quote from a VP of engineering at Google for support.

Then, Forbes’ social media editor completely ruined the post for me with a single tweet. More →

10 killer jailbreak tweaks that add features regular iPhone users wish they had

Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are going to add some fantastic new features to the company’s smartphone lineup, but there are some great features iPhones will never have out of the box. It’s not because Apple wants people to miss out on these experiences, per se, but rather that Apple focuses on features that will appeal to the broadest range of users.

Of course, that’s why we have the jailbreak community. More →
