Facebook Events on iOS adds browsing by category

Facebook Events on iOS adds browsing by category

Facebook has turned its attention to Events, the part of the service you’re likely familiar with but never too happy about. Events works well enough, but has its downsides — a bunch of unwanted notifications being among them — that have gone mostly untouched. Things are changing for iOS users, though; Facebook has announced an update that makes it easier to find events in certain cities using search.

Apple names new COO as Schiller takes App Store crown

Apple names new COO as Schiller takes App Store crown

The role previously held by Tim Cook has remained vacant since he became CEO in 2011. That role of COO, Chief Operating Officer, has been filled this week by Jeff Williams. This fellow has been part of Apple since the year 1998 and has been responsible for quite a few different projects, like supervising development of ResearchKit and the Apple Watch as well as overseeing the Apple service and support network and Apple's supply chain. Williams is now one of four "C" level executives at Apple.

First iPhone hacker built a self-driving car with Linux

First iPhone hacker built a self-driving car with Linux

Wait, what? You might be asking yourself what inspired a hacker by the name of George Hotz to build his own self-driving car. That's what we wanted to know, too. It would seem that Hotz decided to kick out a self-driving car using a 2016 Acura ILX in "about a month." He's using Ubuntu Linux as his operating system and has an absurdly massive 21.5-inch display sitting in the middle. A flight navigator joystick rests between the front two seats which, when triggered, engages a fully operational self-driving vehicle system.

iPhone 7 may be self-healing T-1000 waterproof

iPhone 7 may be self-healing T-1000 waterproof

A self-healing elastomer has been revealed by an early license listing by Apple for future smart devices, possibly headed to the iPhone 7. The next-generation smartphone may very well benefit from what Apple describes as a "self-healing elastomer may obscure the electronic connectors from the user as well as provide environmental protection for the connector and the electronic device." This will assist in waterproofing the smartphone, something Apple has already begun working towards in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

Tesla now sells leather iPhone cases made from leftover upholstery

Tesla now sells leather iPhone cases made from leftover upholstery

It seems like everyone wants to get into the iPhone case market this holiday season. First it was rival Android smartphone makers OnePlus, with their unique "Sandstone" texture iPhone case, and now it's popular electric car maker Tesla. The company has just updated its online store, which features items like wallets, key fobs, and driving gloves, and now it offers two styles of leather cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus (presumably they'll work with the new 6s models as well).

Why the Samsung Galaxy S7 will leapfrog iPhone 7 for true believers

Why the Samsung Galaxy S7 will leapfrog iPhone 7 for true believers

All of the pieces are falling in place for Samsung to take a running leap over Apple in the smartphone feature market. What I'm talking about here isn't necessarily Samsung taking away market share from Apple - the Samsung Galaxy S7 almost certainly will not outsell the iPhone 7. What I'm talking about is daring, innovative moves that push the personal device industry forward. Apple remains a company that are wonderful and work well. They aren't about creating something that has a significant chance of not selling as much or more than their previous-generation product.

Facebook Offline Mode will download data for you

Facebook Offline Mode will download data for you

The social network makes Offline Mode a reality with apps' ability to make Facebook comments and see cached content at all times. This is part of the plan. Part of the plan Facebook has to get as much Facebook delivered to you as it can, all the time. They suggest that these updates are to tend to people around the world connecting with 2G mobile data in developing countries - we know it's for the cat pics.

Google Photos update turns it into a social network

Google Photos update turns it into a social network

No, Google didn't just turn Google Photos into Google+. Instead, they've updated the app to include Shared Albums, meaning you will be able to upload photos to an album that all of your contacts can see. Public sharing is slightly different, as is posting to Facebook. This update allows friends and family - whomever you've added - to access a unique folder in your library. Others can share folders of theirs with you, too.

Apple Smart Battery Case teardown is “rudimentary”

Apple Smart Battery Case teardown is “rudimentary”

The folks at iFixit have done a rather simple teardown of the new iPhone Smart Battery Case by Apple. Inside they've found... well... just some basic parts, basically. They suggest that "for such a Smart battery, it looks like most of the brains probably live in software on your iPhone." They go on to suggest that they've only found "some rudimentary ICs inside." Let's have a peek at what they've found.
