    The aesthetics of the new Control Center in iOS 11 has been the source of amusement, debate and disgust in varying measures. But putting the look to one side for a moment, people upgrading to iOS 11 have been disappointed to discover that the toggles for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in the Control Center don't actually turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. For reasons best known to Apple, the toggles disconnect from wireless networks and Bluetooth devices, but the two radios will remain enabled. While the change of functionality is covered in Apple's support documentation, it's not something that is (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    Do you wince when your partner suggests you head to IKEA on a Sunday morning? Everyone seems to have decided that IKEA is their goto store for furnishing a room and it can be bedlam at a weekend. And that’s if you can get into the car park. Luckily Apple has made the task a lot easier by adding augmented reality to iOS 11. Simply put, the new feature enables a person to move around objects within a virtual environment. As a result, IKEA has released Place, which is an iOS app which will take your room and enable you to… [Continue (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    One of the perks -- arguably the main perk -- of paying for YouTube Red is that your subscription fee gives you an ad-free experience. At least that's the idea... Google has now admitted that it was in fact running ads on its premium video service despite promising not to. This was not a change of heart or policy, however; the search giant is putting it down to an "underlying issue" which it is working to fix. In addressing the issue with user, though, it seems Google also failed to understand its own policies. A thread started up on Reddit… [Continue (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    With the Windows 10 Fall Creators update coming next month, Microsoft is obviously working very hard to get the operating system in a good state. There have been plenty of Insiders builds, which at this point, are mostly focusing on bug fixes and stability. Today, Microsoft pushes out Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Build 16294 to the Fast ring. While the change log lists fixes, it strangely does not list any known issues. Surface Pro 3 owners should be happy, as this build finally fixes the dreaded non-boot issue. "Tonight we are rolling out Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16294 for PC to… (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    There have been rumors for a while now that Google was going to buy the struggling HTC. This seemed like a wonderful idea, as HTC makes great smartphones, which is good for the overall health of the Android market. Today, a deal finally happens, but Google didn't buy HTC outright. Strangely, as the deal is laid out, the search giant has seemingly bought HTC employees. Yes, for $1.1 billion, the search giant has sort of purchased human beings -- plus it gets access to some intellectual property. HTC gets a much-needed big influx of cash. "Google and HTC Corporation today announced a… (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    Amazon Web Services (AWS) will soon be raising its prices to better compete against its rivals Microsoft and Google in the public cloud market. The company announced on Monday that as of October 2, it will begin charging customers by the second to use its EC2 virtual slices in its data centers. This is a big change in AWS' pricing model, as it has charged by the hour since its release in 2006. A year after Alphabet's Google entered the public cloud market, it announced that it would begin to charge customers by the minute with a 10-minute minimum. Microsoft's Azure also adopted a similar (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    The horrible natural disasters keep coming, folks. Regardless of what is causing them, one thing is certain -- the victims need help. Thankfully, people and organizations seemingly have deep pockets this year when it comes to helping their fellow man. Heck, some companies have also offered complimentary products and services too. One of the most recent tragedies is the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that rocked Mexico. If you haven't seen any footage, please know that it is bad. Like, really bad. Buildings have collapsed on people, including children, and the death toll is expected to climb very (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    Last year, 64 percent of CEOs increased their business' investment in corporate social responsibility. Thanks to new technology and the internet, along with advancements in science and medicine, companies have become more informed about their social and environmental impact. Armed with the evidence needed to change business practices for the greater good of employees, consumers, and the environment, there has never been a better time to put this knowledge and these insights into action.  From climate change to poverty, these are trying times. But these challenges are not insurmountable. (...) -- 64 percent of CEOs

    With Android, Google has already won the mobile war... at least, when it comes to software. Android is the world's most popular mobile operating system and is installed on 64.76 percent of phones and tablets worldwide, twice the size of iOS, according to NetMarketShare. Google's next mission is way more challenging, though, and it will probably take a long time — but it's not impossible. The search giant must find a way to dethrone Samsung as the premier Android phone maker and finally compete directly with the iPhone. And it could accomplish this challenge by buying HTC's mobile (...) -- Gadgets, Google, Android, Smartphones, Htc

    The story goes that, during the Battle of Jericho, God directed seven priests to blast notes from their ram's horns as they circled the city, and the sound from those horns wobbled the walls of Jericho until they crumbled.  This, almost certainly, did not happen.

    As Hurricane Maria continues to rampage through the Caribbean, images of the destruction are starting to surface.  The island of Dominica was completely devastated by the storm. Puerto Rico was hit by "catastrophic" flooding, as the National Weather Service put it, and its capital could be without power for four to six months.  SEE ALSO: Hurricane Maria seen swirling from space in new video When Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on Wednesday, it was a Category 4 storm with winds up to 155 miles per hour.

    The rumors are (mostly) true: Google is buying a part of HTC to beef up its hardware business. Google announced the agreement late Wednesday.

    Nicaragua was one of the final holdouts on signing the Paris Agreement on climate change, but after seeing other countries deal with devastating natural disasters, the country is joining the deal.  That leaves the United States and Syria as the only countries not participating.

    Rock stars like Liam Gallagher are certainly a rare breed these days. Maybe that's a good thing, but you'd miss moments like the former Oasis band member kicking an almighty fuss about tea, as per a clip from a recent episode of BBC Backstage Music Pass. SEE ALSO: Who knew 'Despacito' played on 2 calculators could sound this good? To be fair, the making of tea turns out to be something of a metaphor for the modern music industry, which Gallagher eloquently explains: "Now, in the '90s I got someone else to fucking do it, but now I can't, fucking money is tight."

    Remember how we told you to turn off your Bluetooth? Well, iOS 11 just made that a lot harder.  Turning off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth used to be as simple as swiping upwards and pressing two buttons on your control panel. Those buttons still exist in your new and improved (but slightly more confusing), Control Center, but pressing them doesn't fully turn the features off anymore.  Instead, it disconnects your phone from its existing Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.  SEE ALSO: Get club vibes in your tiny apartment with these magnetic speakers The features are also likely to turn themselves back (...) -- Iphone, Wifi, Bluetooth, Ios 11, Control Center

    Hodinkee’s Ben Clymer was, I believe, the only reviewer seeded with an Apple Watch Series 3 Edition, and his review is excellent: Now, what I haven’t mentioned yet is that there is actually a sister product to Apple Watch Series 3 that is all but a must-have: AirPods. Apple’s wireless Bluetooth headphones have been with me since December of last year, and while the sound quality is hardly audiophile worthy, they are incredibly convenient. At this point, I couldn’t live without them, and I felt that way even before I received this sample Series 3 to try. They are an even bigger part of my (...)

    Apple: In iOS 11 and later, when you toggle the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth buttons in Control Center, your device will immediately disconnect from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth accessories. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will continue to be available, so you can use these important features: AirDrop AirPlay Apple Pencil Apple Watch Continuity features, like Handoff and Instant Hotspot Instant Hotspot Location Services This is an interesting feature, but I think it’s going to confuse and anger a lot of people.

    Serenity Caldwell: Apple’s GPS + Cellular Apple Watch is almost here, and I’ve gotten a ton of questions from our readers and various folks on Twitter in regards to how cellular data will work on the Apple Watch. Here’s a brief overview of everything you need to know in that regard. Great FAQ. One small thing she missed: the new Explorer watch face is exclusive to cellular-capable watches, and it shows you whether you’re currently connected to LTE or not with the four green circles that serve as a signal-strength indicator.

    Brian X. Chen, writing for The New York Times: Important features like the stopwatch, calendar and Siri work quickly and reliably. And unlike its predecessors, the watch has impressive battery life — on average, I had more than 40 percent battery remaining after a full day of use. So the final verdict? The Apple Watch Series 3 is the first sign that wearable computers are maturing and may eventually become a staple in consumer electronics. I’d like to reiterate just how good my experience with Siri has been while testing the watch on LTE. Siri has been fast and accurate, just as it needs (...)

    Aside from the LTE connectivity issues she ran into, Stern’s review is interesting because she tried something Apple Watch Series 3 isn’t really meant for: going all day long without your iPhone. She had to recharge midday, but Apple’s own specs only list the watch as having 4 hours of battery life while connected to LTE, and 1 hour of talk time. It’s a fun video, too. I realize these larger publications have video teams, but all I can think is that if I published videos alongside my product reviews, I’d still be working on my review of the iPhone 7 from last year. (...)

    A recent convert to the ways of the laser cutter, redditor [i-made-a-thing] was in want of a project and — stumbling on some waterways maps on Etsy — launched into fabricating an illuminated map of all the waterways in the United States. The map itself was laser-cut out of 1/4 inch plywood at his local makerspace. Thing is, smaller rivers and tributaries were too narrow at the scale [i-made-a-thing] wanted, so he ended up spending several hours in Photoshop preparing the image so larger rivers would be laser-cut — and not break off– while the rest would be etched onto the surface.
