Just as expected, Apple today started pushing iOS 11 to devices

below! Weighing in at 1.9 GB, this is obviously a sizeable update, so you may
want to download it via Wi-Fi, instead of via a cellular network.

What's the best deal on a Note 8 preorder? Best Buy vs Sam's Club, Costco and Target

As you might have already sensed with your wallet, this year’s phones in the midtier to high-end segment are more expensive than their predecessors, on account of their design overhauls, as was already exemplified by the S8, G6, OnePlus 5, or with the rumored $1000 starting tag for the OLED iPhone 8. The latest comer to the flagship party, however, Galaxy Note 8, beats them all right now, as it is already at the starting price of nearly a grand, a Benjamin more than its unfortunate predecessor, the Note 7. Still, Samsung and the carriers, as well as the nationwide retailers, are …

iOS 11 beta 7 is out: Here's what's new

Android 8.0 Oreo is now officially-official, but Apple is not lagging much behind – while we still have some time before iOS 11 officially arrives, there’s always room for a new beta version of that one to arrive. Guess what, iOS 11 beta 7 is now out, introducing a tiny slew of new features to the mix that are quite likely  ending up in the official iOS 11 version sometime next month.
So, what’s new in this update. Suffice to say that it’s a rather incremental one with few novelties:
Volume slider now has a yellow “too loud” section …

What's up with 'Gotham City Sirens,' 'Nightwing' and 'Black Adam' at DC?

TwitterFacebook

When Warner Brosannounced its slate of nine upcoming films at Comic-Con on Saturday, we couldn’t help but notice a few big omissions.

Embedded within the sizzle reel were nine titles and logos, most of which we knew were coming, some of which (like Wonder Woman II) are now officially official. Make no mistake: Nine is a lot of movies to have lined up.

But what has become of Gotham City Sirens, the Harley Quinn-led female villain team-up which Margot Robbie boarded back in December? Wouldn’t the return of another major female star — with the director, David Ayer, who first got her to screen — seem like something you’d include? Read more…

What's up with the 'Justice League' post-trailer cliffhanger? Is that … Superman?

TwitterFacebook

The Justice League Comic-Con trailer makes a big deal out of uniting the DC superheroes. But it doesn’t take a Batman-level intellect to figure out that one’s still missing.

Superman’s nowhere to be seen in the latest Justice League footage reel – and since Henry Cavill was also MIA at the Warner Bros. Hall H panel, no one got a chance to ask him about it. But that latest trailer may have given us a little clue as to how the Man of Steel will figure into all of this.

At the very end of the video, Jeremy Irons’ Alfred addresses an unseen figure. “He said you’d come. Now let’s hope you’re not too late.” That line is prefaced by Alfred noticing that his whiskey glass is starting to shake, Jurassic Park-style. Whoever or whatever it is, it’s creating a lot of commotion. Read more…
