Biggest news of the week

OnePlus One receives major new update with tons of features

As promised last week, OnePlus on Monday introduced a new update (CyanogenMod 11S release, 05Q) that focuses on improving the current software experience. No, this isn’t an update to Lollipop just yet, but it does lay the groundwork by tightening things up. A little nip here, tuck there, and soon you’ll have the goodness of […]

Minecraft is the most popular game on YouTube

Gaming videos are huge on YouTube, and Minecraft makes up a big chunk of that. Market research firm Newzoo and brand management company Octoly took a look at the presence of gaming videos on Google’s video service and came back with some interesting numbers. If you total up the number of views on the top 20 videos […]

5 apps we can’t live without, and neither should you

I was on a trip with friends this weekend and someone asked me “Todd, what are the apps I’m not using and need to check out?” I looked at my phone, pointed to two that I love, and then realized, hey, maybe our readers have the same question my friend did.

Galaxy S6 concept images turn rumors into reality

In just a few short weeks we’ll get an official look at Samsung’s much ballyhooed Galaxy S6. But until the curtain is pulled back, designers are already producing concept images of what the device will look like next to last year’s model. You know, for comparison’s sake. And you know what? It looks nearly identical […]

Beautiful iOS 9 concept video shows how iOS notifications should work

Apple’s iOS 8 notification center is great in theory, but in practice its a sprawling jumble that I prefer to avoid. It doesn’t have to be this bad though, and a new concept design from Mobile Creative in Stockholm imagines a notification center we wouldn’t mind using. The video (embedded below) doesn’t specifically mention iOS […]

Raspberry Pi 2 Can Crash If You Take Its Picture

Early adopters of the Raspberry Pi 2 have stumbled across a very strange problem when taking pictures of their unit. If using a camera with a Xenon flash, the machine locks up completely and cannot be used until it has been power cycled. “I have discovered that my PI2 is camera-shy,” wrote PeterO on the […]
