Note: The image on the left is our interpretation of the patent image.

This was news in more than one way: firstly, it single-handedly confirmed that an LG V30 is on the way, and secondly, it heavily hinted that this one will be donning an OLED display, which is one of the hardware requirements for Daydream support. 
And it seems that right after this high-level confirmation, …

TwitterFacebook

When mum and dad’s “bird and the bees” talk causes you to have more questions than answers and when your school sex education classes don’t seem to cover all the bases, who can you turn to?

Adolescents are increasingly turning to the internet to fill in the gaps. While it’s a great resource, it can be difficult to navigate when you don’t know what you’re looking for. Some teens turn to porn to provide the answers, but porn is often filled with unrealistic portrayals of sex. Googling one’s queries tends to lack the care and wisdom of a teacher whose presence can put a worried mind at ease. Read more…

Is Apple giving up on tablets, or is the new iPad a smart business move at $330? (poll results)

As you an see from the chart above, the tablet market is far from its heydays, and its growth is expected to stall for the sake of laptops, which are projected to grow in shipments.

Most of our survey respondents below think that this is a smart business move, given that the hardware components inside have fallen in price since the days of the Air 2, and Apple’s app and services business is growing leaps and bounds, too. …
