Some Apple iPhone users on AT&T can't make or take calls (UPDATE)

If you are an AT&T subscriber with an Apple iPhone, you might have found it difficult to make or answer a phone call today on your device. The nation’s second largest carrier is experiencing some sort of network issue that instantly disconnects calls once they are connected. Calls made to some iPhone models that support the AT&T pipeline are sent right to voicemail, without giving the device user a chance to answer.

UPDATE: The outage now appears to be affecting all AT&T customers regardless of the device they use.

Another day, another Google Pixel 2 problem: Many users can't unlock their bootloaders

It seems that yet another new issue is her to mar the quality control regarding Google’s newest Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL stock Android champs. 

It would seem that a number of Google Pixel 2 units purchased straight from the Play Store and not some shady reseller are arriving with bootloaders that can’t be unlocked. As you might imagine, the issue first popped up on XDA’s developer-centric forums, where multiple users bemoaned that they are unable to unlock the bootlaoders of their new devices though they are supposed to be able to do that by default, …

(Update: You sort of can now) You can't really customize Google Pixel 2/2 XL's squeezable edge

Update: And just like that, a workaround has been discovered! Truly, the ways of the Android tweakers are mysterious. You can now remap the Pixels’ Active Edge with this neat little app dubbed Button Mapper. After you install it and grant the required accessibility service, all you need to do is follow the instructions and you will be pretty much set. 
One of the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2’s key features that got lifted straight from HTC U11 is the Active Edge frame which allows you to firmly squeeze the device in order to launch the Google …

The Google 8 announcement event had special Oreos for the guests… but you can't get them

So, Google finally launched Android 8 and revealed its name — as the fans have been speculating for years now, the O build of Android is named after the popular Oreo cookies. And what better way to celebrate the OS update than with a bunch of Oreos handed out at the announcement event?

Actually, make them custom cookies while you’re at it. Yup, Google ordered a special batch of Oreos for the launch event — ones with the Android mascot engraved on the cookie and the cream changed to green, instead of being white. We can only hope that it was the same sweet stuff and not, say, wasabi or something …

8 most delicious iPhone 8 features we can't wait to sink our teeth in

We’re all excited about the iPhone 8. The whole world is excited. But why?
While there’s no doubt Apple has something extremely special cooking up in the kitchen (otherwise why would it appoint a Cook for a CEO?), do we really know what’s going to be so great about it? We mean, obviously Apple hasn’t given us an iPhone that looks genuinely new and different from that breakthrough metal slate it unleashed back in 2014, and with the iPhone 8 rumored to finally shake things up dramatically, both media and consumers are gobbling up every new piece of render or leak as …

We bet you can't find all the crafty cats hiding in these photos

TwitterFacebook

Cats are the masters of hide-and-seek.

Whether they’re stalking through the undergrowth or sliding beneath carelessly placed piles of clothes, those whiskery queens of disguise know how to disappear when they want to.

On Sunday night, Twitter Moments rounded up 16 gloriously puzzling “spot the cat” photos. Some are fairly obvious, others take a moment or two, and a few are fiendishly difficult.

See how many cats you can find.

Here is why you can't find your favorite Nokia-branded smartphone yet

It’s true that HMD promised to bring all three Nokia-branded smartphones in just about every meaningful market by the end of June. Unfortunately, the Finnish company has yet to achieve what it said in its previous statements.

Although it might be that many countries have already received one or two of the Nokia smartphones, stocks are dwindling, and HMD is hardly able to keep up with the high demand.

If you’ve already purchased the Nokia 3 or 5, then you can consider yourself lucky, as HMD is now gathering data from suppliers and will announce new release …

Samsung just announced a flashy pink Galaxy S8+ variant, and you can't have it

Given the current overcrowded smartphone market, it’s a bit of a mystery why most manufacturers choose dull, lifeless colors for their flagship phones: surely chasing the best-in-line specs doesn’t imply not caring about looks, no? Still, a couple of the big names on the market have been making baby steps toward a more colorful future: HTC and Huawei are the first that come to mind, but it might be time to add Samsung to this list, as well.

This is, you see, because its latest flagship, the Galaxy S8, has had its fair share of unorthodox variants: apart …

Samsung has super-fast new MRAM memory, but it can't make enough of it

Samsung has cooked up the fastest memory of its kind and wants to show it at an event next month, May 24. Called MRAM (short for magnetoresistant random access memory), this type of non-volatile memory uses spin torque transfer technology to read and write data up to 1,000 times faster than current NAND solutions. It also uses less power while active, and consumption hits zero when inactive.

Sounds too good to be true, right? So where’s the catch? Well, Samsung is unable to produce more than a few megabytes of the stuff per unit right now. So MRAM is only good as …
