Dish Network’s new game-changer has nothing to do with TV

Dish Network’s new game-changer has nothing to do with TV

Dish Network is one of two leading satellite television providers in the United States, and it’s also an internet service provider ever since it first launched its DishNET offering. Starting today, however, Dish is thrusting itself into an entirely new category: smartphone repair. No, that’s no typo, Dish on Tuesday morning announced the immediate availability of “Smart Phone Repair,” an on-site handset repair service that will send a technician to your home to fix your broken smartphone.

It seems like an odd move at first, but it’s actually quite smart and I’ll explain why. More →

300 free wallpapers that will breathe new life into your iPhone (or Android phone)

300 free wallpapers that will breathe new life into your iPhone (or Android phone)

Well, I suppose it was inevitable. Late last week I wrote a quick post about how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours. Long story short, people constantly email me each time I publish an article with a photo of my iPhone at the top. Why? Because they want the wallpapers I use on my iPhone. So in this post I decided to let people in on the not-so-secret secret of how I make the wallpapers I use.

Needless to say, I’ve received about 175 emails since that article ran from people asking me to send them the wallpapers pictured in the post. Let’s try something different this time… More →

iPhone 8 Rumors

Major tech breakthrough iPhone users have been waiting for is finally here

By on May 2, 2016 at 12:58 PM.

Major tech breakthrough iPhone users have been waiting for is finally here

Why is the iPhone 6s Plus so gigantic and unwieldy when Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge is wonderfully compact and manageable? Both smartphones have screens that measure 5.5 inches diagonally, so they should be reasonably comparable in size. But alas, the Galaxy S7 edge is a pleasure to use with one hand while the iPhone 6s Plus is far too huge for most users to comfortably manage.

The reason is partially because of Apple’s need to keep that great big home button situated beneath the screen for Touch ID fingerprint authentication. Soon, however, Apple might be able to ditch the home button without having to move its fingerprint scanner to a less convenient position on the back of the phone. More →

YouTube Material Design

How to switch to YouTube’s big Material Design makeover right now, before it launches

How to switch to YouTube’s big Material Design makeover right now, before it launches

When Google redesigned the Android interface using its new “Material Design” guidelines, users were ecstatic. It’s not that Android’s old design was particularly bad, but the new and improved look of Android was sleek and modern. In fact, Material Design arguably made Android the best-looking mobile platform in the world.

After Android got its big makeover, other Google sites and services began to enjoy redesigns using the same Material look and feel. But after all this time, one of Google’s most popular sites — YouTube — has yet to get its Material makeover… until now.

Google is testing a fantastic new design for the YouTube website and it should be released at some point in the coming weeks. You don’t have to wait another minute to check out YouTube’s new design though, and we’ll tell you how in this post. More →

Who Is Satoshi Nakamoto

Bitcoin creator ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ has come forward and revealed his identity

Bitcoin creator ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ has come forward and revealed his identity

We’ve been down this path before, but it’s looking increasingly likely that this may in fact be the last time. After a big mistake turned Dorian Nakamoto’s life upside down in 2014 when Newsweek unmasked the wrong man, the true Satoshi Nakamoto has seemingly come forward in a blog post and a coordinated reveal with several news agencies. Australian Craig Wright claims to be the inventor of popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin, and he apparently has provided technical evidence to back up his claim by providing keys tied to coins that are widely known to be in the possession of Bitcoin’s inventor.

Steve Jobs Last Words

These aren’t Steve Jobs’s last words, but they still managed to inspire a billionaire

These aren’t Steve Jobs’s last words, but they still managed to inspire a billionaire

Remember back when email chains were a thing? Instead of sharing anything and everything you find online using Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, people would pass along anecdotes via email. Several of these chain emails would reach your inbox each day, and you’d forward the best and most inspirational among them to everyone on your contact list. And the best part about them, of course, was that the stories they recounted were almost always completely and utterly fake.

We were reminded recently of these silly chain emails by an inaccurate story currently making the rounds online claiming to recount the inspiring last words of late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs. Interestingly, the passage was still moving enough to inspire a billionaire even though it doesn’t recount Jobs’s final words at all. More →

You can get a brand new Galaxy S7 for $560 right now if you hurry

There are precious few high-end smartphones that are actually worth paying top dollar for, but the Galaxy S7 should be counted among them. Samsung did a tremendous job of combining a gorgeous design with cutting-edge specs, and the S7 easily has the best smartphone display on the planet. It’s our favorite Android phone right now, hands down.

But just because it’s worth paying top dollar doesn’t mean you actually should. More →

Best iPhone Wallpapers 2016

This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

This is how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours

Every time I publish a post that includes a photo of my iPhone at the top of the page, my email inbox and Twitter DM box fill up a little quicker than usual. Why? People always seem to love the wallpapers I use on my iPhone. I’m not a designer and I don’t do anything particularly special to find wallpapers or to make them, but I do put some effort into the wallpapers I use. There are so few things Apple allows users to do to customize the look of the iPhone, so I try whatever I can to give my phone a little extra flair.

How do I always manage to make my iPhone look so much better than yours? It’s time to let the cat out of the bag. More →

Apple Suicide

Everything we know about the suicide at Apple’s headquarters this week

Everything we know about the suicide at Apple’s headquarters this week

This has been an incredibly difficult week for Apple. The company shed more than $40 billion in market capitalization on Tuesday evening following its fiscal first-quarter earnings report, which showed a much steeper decline than Wall Street was expecting in both profit and iPhone sales. Then, just one day later, tragedy struck Apple’s Cupertino, California headquarters when one of the company’s employees was found dead in a conference room on campus.

The story is still unfolding two days later. More →
