Microsoft CEO Nadella insults two iPad owners; "Get a real computer," he says

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently took a trip to India where he happened to run into pair of journalists who were both sporting Apple iPad tablets. “You need to get a real computer, my friend,” the executive said to one of them. Other Microsoft executives earlier this year said that Apple copied the Surface Pro with the iPad Pro. Ryan Gavin, General Manager of the Surface line, was a bit more specific when he stated that the iPad Pro was the result of Apple copying Microsoft in the 2-in-1 category.

There are those who say that there are many similarities between the two devices. Both …


Redesigned ESPN app is coming next Spring to stream live games, real time scores and more

Dah dah dah. Dah dah dah. That, ladies and Gentlemen, is the iconic ESPN Sportscenter theme. If you’re a die hard sports fan, you can hear it playing in your mind. Dah dah dah. Dah dah dah. ESPN even uses it with its app to alert users of a notification. Now, ESPN and its parent company Disney are planning on adding a streaming service next year called ESPN + that will be available from a redesigned ESPN app. Disney CEO Bob Iger says, “This one app (will offer) sports fans far more than they can get on any other app, website or channel.”

The streaming service will allow users to catch the …

10 real reasons to buy the iPhone X… and a few to let it slide

Now that the iPhone X reviews and first impressions are done and dusted, quite a few tangible advantages you can get from Apple’s latest and greatest have emerged, and these are no longer marketing speak, but actual features or options that are better than what the competition has to offer. 

With the iPhone X, Apple delivered not only in its usual strong areas like display, design, and camera quality, but also improved on traditionally average points like screen-to-body ratio, battery life, or pixel density.
On the flip side, …

Klingons on 'Star Trek: Discovery' feel a little too real in the age of Trump

TwitterFacebook

The Klingons are back on Star Trek: Discovery — and they’re more scary and interesting than ever.

They’ve come a long way over the years. On the original series, they were mostly scheming, villainous foils to the Enterprise crew. In the early movies, their forehead ridges and warrior aesthetic were further developed. 

Then, on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, we got an in-depth look into their history, religion, and social hierarchies.

So when I heard they’d appear in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, I got excited. How would the alien race evolve in the J.J. Abrams era? Turns out, they wouldn’t: they got a new look, but were mostly there to mindlessly shoot at the Enterprise crew and Benedict Cumberbatch.  Read more…

Pete Souza's latest Instagram lets Trump know who the real 'Rocket Man' is

TwitterFacebook

If Pete Souza keeps it up with his Instagram responses to President Trump, we’re going to start thinking he doesn’t like the guy!

On the morning of Sept. 17, Trump referred to Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man” in a tweet (shortly before retweeting a video in which he hits Hillary Clinton with a golf ball — it’s been a big day for the president). While the taunting nickname is bizarre in the context of things American presidents have said throughout the nation’s history, it’s just another Sunday morning for Trump.

Real Google Pixel 2 photo apparently leaks out, dual speakers visible

Google is unsurprisingly working on a 2017 generation of Pixel smartphones – which debuted last year with a 5-inch Pixel and a 5.5-inch Pixel XL. While we’ve already seen renders allegedly showing the upcoming devices – possibly called Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 – we can now take a look at what seems to be the first real photo of the Pixel 2 (the smaller among the two new handsets).

Uncovered today by Venture Beat, the Pixel 2 photo in question (embedded above) shows a smartphone that doesn’t really have thin bezels – at least not at the top and bottom of its screen. …

OK, let's be real – do Android updates matter that much to you?

Android has always been scrutinized for the major issue of slow updates. Sure, Google pushes out the latest Android build to its Nexus and Pixel phones quite fast, but 3rd party manufacturers get left in the dust, trying to make their custom UI play nice with the new OS, then pushing the update to carriers who have to give it the final greenlight before distribution to the users.

But let’s slow down and think about this for a second. Samsung and LG have long had their custom interfaces on top of Google’s OS and they both look radically different to the vanilla Android. …

Captain America's fugitive beard is the real star of the 'Avengers: Infinity War' concept art

TwitterFacebook

Turns out, Captain America can rock one hell of a beard. And you don’t have to just take our word for it anymore.

While Marvel Studios has yet to release any Avengers: Infinity War footage online, they have been giving out concept art posters at Comic-Con this weekend, and those posters offer an early peek at what our heroes will look like in action. 

It all started a few days ago with this official announcement from the Marvel Twitter account.

Take a peek at the first iPhone 8 dummy unit that actually looks like a real product

Another day, another alleged iPhone 8 dummy unit has been spotted online. However, this time the pictures come from a somewhat reputable source, serial leakster @OnLeaks, and also for the first time ever their subject actually looks like a real product that may hit the store shelves soon, instead of an incomplete attempt at recreating one.
Or in other words, consider this as the closest thing we’ve gotten to a real look at the iPhone 8 so far. So let’s dive in:
The front of the dummy shows us little we haven’t seen …

OnePlus had no real reason to abandon the OnePlus 2, and it won’t need one for the 5, either

Good news, everybody – the OnePlus 5 is finally official! What this hopefully means is that the company’s hype campaign for the device will thankfully die down soon, at least for a short amount of time. But aggressive and slightly irritating as it was, it sure worked: the 5 is eagerly being awaited by a ton of fans, nevermind its slightly higher price and… unimaginative design.

But everyone out there who’s considering buying the device should know exactly what they’re getting into. Consider the following article as a word of advice: for all of its great marketing, …
