Apple issues statement following apparent suicide at Cupertino headquarters

Apple on Thursday morning issued an official statement after a man was found dead on Wednesday at Apple’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California. Officials from the Santa Clara County’s Sheriff’s Department confirmed on Wednesday that they responded to a call around 8:35 a.m. local time stating that there was a “person down” on Apple’s Cupertino campus. Upon arriving at the scene they discover the body of a deceased male. The coroner is currently examining the body and the cause of death has not yet been confirmed, but reports suggest that the victim died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

iPhone Round Folder Icons

Completely change the look of your iPhone with round folder icons, no jailbreak needed

Completely change the look of your iPhone with round folder icons, no jailbreak needed

This has got to be one of the coolest iOS bugs we’ve seen in a long time, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Apple doesn’t fix it anytime soon.

Little glitches are common to find here and there in iOS, as is the case with any other software platform. Sometimes they’re serious bugs that compromise the security of your iPhone or iPad, but sometimes they’re harmless little glitches that offer some unexpected side effects. The latest bug found in the iOS platform thankfully falls into the latter category, and it gives your iPhone or iPad an awesome new look typically reserved only for people who jailbreak their phones.

Comcast’s NBCUniversal is acquiring DreamWorks for $3.8 billion

How many streaming DreamWorks movies does it take to eat through a Comcast data cap?

Following rumors that suggested a deal was imminent, Comcast-owned NBCUniversal has announced that it will acquire top animation studio DreamWorks for $41 a share. That figure represents a 27% premium over Wednesday’s close, and it works out to a total of roughly $3.8 billion. DreamWorks Animation will become part of Universal Pictures and will be lumped into the company’s Filmed Entertainment Group.

DreamWorks co-founder and CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg will become chairman of the newly formed entity, which will be called DreamWorks New Media moving forward. Katzenberg will also act as a consultant to NBCUniversal as part of the deal. More →

Samsung Earnings

Samsung reports fastest growth in three years following Apple’s big miss

Samsung reports fastest growth in three years following Apple’s big miss

Remember how Apple got a little crafty and bulked up its holiday quarter by playing around with the iPhone 6s launch? Well guess what happened when Samsung shifted its Galaxy S7 launch earlier in the year — you got it, a big performance boost in the first quarter. Hot off of Apple’s first ever quarterly decline in iPhone sales, Samsung reported first-quarter earnings on Thursday morning that showed a healthy 14% rise in profit. The company had strong Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge shipments to thank for the performance boost, which marked Samsung’s strongest profit growth in three years. More →

Hover Camera Price

There’s a new drone that’s actually a drone and we’re pretty sure you’ll want one

There’s a new drone that’s actually a drone and we’re pretty sure you’ll want one

It really shouldn’t be this refreshing to see a company unveil a drone that’s actually a drone, but alas. The term “drone” has been broadened to include a wide range of popular quadcopters that don’t have any autonomous capabilities at all, but there are still some companies building real drones for consumer use. Back in February we told you about an awesome drone that can follow you and record your every move with its built-in camera, though it’s a bit pricey for some. If you don’t want to part with that kind of cash you’ll be happy to learn that a new drone called the Hover Camera will soon be released, and it offers similar functionality in a much more compact design at a fraction of the price.

Batman The Killing Joke Trailer

There’s a new Batman movie that doesn’t star Ben Affleck and this is the first trailer

There’s a new Batman movie that doesn’t star Ben Affleck and this is the first trailer

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a real eye opener for a lot of people. We published a few posts about how vast the disparity was between critics’ opinions and fans’ opinions on the movie, and we subsequently received a flood of emails from people telling us how much they loved the movie and how little they value the opinions of critics.

But even among people who loved Batman v Superman, not everyone enjoyed Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the caped crusader.

Well, we’ve got good news and bad news: the good news is that there’s a brand new R-rated Batman movie coming out later this year, and Ben Affleck won’t star as the Bat. The bad news is that no one will really star as Batman in this new film, because it’s animated. More →

Apple Earnings Release Response

Making sense of Apple now that everything has changed

Making sense of Apple now that everything has changed

Apple shed more than $40 billion in market capitalization in mere minutes on Tuesday afternoon as the company reported its first revenue decline in more than a decade and its first iPhone sales decline ever. But Apple didn’t just report declines, it reported huge declines and missed Wall Street’s earnings estimates by a shockingly wide margin.

iPhone sales plummeted to 51.2 million units from 61.17 million in the same quarter last year. Earnings per share fell to $1.90 while analysts were expecting $2.00 or more. Revenue sank by nearly $7.5 billion on-year.

There were no bright spots in Apple’s report — it was gruesome through and through. But what does all this mean for Apple’s future? More →
