Inside CT6: The Cadillac putting German luxe on notice

Inside CT6: The Cadillac putting German luxe on notice

It's hard to overstate quite how important the 2016 CT6 is to Cadillac. Absent for some time from the full-size luxury segment, Cadillac needs a flagship that can not only take on BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and others in features, but convince drivers that its brand of American Luxury deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the Germans. And while toothy BMW-baiting monsters like the CTS-V may fill a niche, there's nothing like a vast uber-luxe sedan to make your case.

Adonit Jot Script 2 Evernote Edition review

Adonit wants to keep you scribbling away digitally, and their new Jot Script stylus is their best effort to that end thus far. Though penning a long letter digitally probably isn't the aim (or your desire), quick notes are. Jot Script 2 boasts improved hardware, and a firm grasp on Penultimate, the note taking app from Evernote. To see if Adonit improved o their original Jot Script enough to make us ditch paper, we took Jot Script 2 and Penultimate for a spin.

Obama signs bill to allow sanctions be placed on ‘malicious’ hackers

Obama signs bill to allow sanctions be placed on ‘malicious’ hackers

Taking dead aim at “malicious cyber attackers”, President Obama today signed into law a bill that will allow those who target US companies for things like DDoS attacks to have sanctions imposed upon them. In announcing the bill, Homeland Security and Counterterrorism chief Lisa Monaco said “by freezing assets of those subject to sanctions and making it more difficult for them to do business with U.S. entities, we can remove a powerful economic motivation for committing these acts in the first place”.

Pandora CFO talks streaming music, calls Apple a ‘frenemy’

We know how we feel about an Apple streaming music option, and we’re sure you have likely formed an opinion or two yourself. Will we ditch our chosen streaming option for Apple’s? Time will tell, as the service is believed to come to fruition at WWDC this year. Perhaps even more curious is the business side of all this, where Apple is coaxing record labels to let them stream music, and other services are already feeling the pinch. To that, Pandora CFO Mike Herring made some interesting comments about Apple recently.

Twitter profiles may soon see ads in timeline

Like any publicly traded company with a business model that lets you use the service for free, Twitter is going to have to monetize. Either we all pay up to Tweet (not going to happen), or we start seeing ads here and there (already happening). A new report suggests Twitter isn’t just going to seed ‘promoted’ Tweets in your timeline, but also in the timeline of your profile. It's not new -- Twitter already has ads -- but is definitely a new method for placement, but not one without some wrinkles.

Retouch3D lets your put the finishing touches on 3D prints

Retouch3D lets your put the finishing touches on 3D prints

The democratization of 3D printing has made many a dream and idea come true, but for all the fairy tale stories, some things are kept out of the media. Yes, 3D printing does seem like magic, almost instantly giving physical existence to otherwise digital only objects, but the product that comes out of the printer is rarely the polished finished product you get to see in the end of the process. There's still a lot of cruft to be cut out first, a tiresome and ugly process that Retouch3D wants to cut out as well.

Office 365 mobile device management rolls out to paid users

Microsoft is really getting aggressive in reclaiming its lost territory in the office space, especially with the growing number of mobile devices. But while the company is indeed pushing its Office suite to more mobile platforms, that, in turn, has become somewhat of a nightmware for businesses that are trying to keep tight control over their documents and files because of security and privacy reasons. Enter Mobile Device Management or MDM, a system that was born out of the need to rein in and secure mobile devices used at work. And today, Microsoft is making that feature available to Office 365 commercial users.
