Jawbone Drop app hands-on: strange musical connectivity

Jawbone Drop app hands-on: strange musical connectivity

This afternoon we've been having some fun playing with the new Jawbone app called Drop. This app allows you to connect to your RDIO or Spotify account to play music in just about as simplified a manner as possible. Almost as if the folks at Jawbone hired the best User Interface experts they could, then told them to dismiss the UI of RDIO and Spotify altogether. With great effect. And with the ability to share your favorite beats with your buddies through Twiter, of course.

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak released for iPhone, iPad

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak released for iPhone, iPad

While the iOS 8 Jailbreaking universe was a mixed bag of oddities, many creators stuck in Beta mode for many moons, iOS 8.1 ready right off the blocks. This entirely un-authorized look at iOS 8.1 comes from the folks at Team Pangu. That’s inside China - and a good indicator of how awesome it’s going to be having China onboard with the iOS Jailbreaking game from now on. This Jailbreak also works on iOS 8.0 right out the gate. And you CAN get English instructions if you don't read Chinese.

RogerVoice subtitles phone calls for the hard-of-hearing

RogerVoice subtitles phone calls for the hard-of-hearing

These days, speech recognition is a lot about Siri versus Google Now versus Cortana, but that is definitely not the only use case for the technology. We often take for granted what we are able to use our smartphones for because we are physically capable of handling them. Luckily, there are those like RogerVoice who are taking up the banner for others, especially those with hearing problems who still want to use their phones for what they are originally intended to be used for: making calls.

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

Apple is bullish on tablets and, for all it may be the slimmest and lightest of its breed, the iPad Air 2 is undeniably its new heavyweight champion. Dropping weight and bulk while simultaneously gaining power, the iPad Air 2 also dips into the best-selling iPhone 6's pockets for features like Touch ID and Apple Pay. Question is, though, has the new Air done enough to make itself a must-have upgrade?

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

For many tablet fans, Apple's second-generation iPad mini hit the sweet spot. Keeping the bag- and hand-friendly design of the original iPad mini, but adding a Retina display, it replaced standalone ereaders and held the phablet fort until the iPhone 6 Plus arrived. Technology can't stand still, though, and so 2014 brings the iPad mini 3. With the changes far more moderate than the iPad Air 2, though, does the iPad mini 3's previous charm remain as strong? Read on for our full review.

Yelp teams with Hipmunk for in-app hotel reservations

Yelp teams with Hipmunk for in-app hotel reservations

AirBNB sounds (and is) really awesome, but they have a unique set of problems. In some states, listing a room or home on the service means you’ll have to jump through bureaucratic hoops and bust through the red tape. Many are turned off by that, leaving would-be renters searching for a hotel room instead. Today, Yelp announces they’ve teamed up with Hipmunk to provide you with the ability to book a hotel room without ever having to leave Yelp’s app.

iCloud attacks were real: Apple comments

iCloud attacks were real: Apple comments

This week it was reported that Apple’s iCloud servers were under attack by China - as it turns out that’s not entirely true. Apple has made clear in a statement that there were indeed "intermittent organized network attacks" this week, but that they were done on people attempting to access the iCloud webpage. There weren’t any attacks on the iCloud servers themselves, nor were there any drops of user information. Apple does, however, suggest that you pay attention to "certificate warnings."

You know what sucks, but is also really necessary? Math. All those numbers and letters jumbled up with a bunch of slashes, staring at you from some book, in a class you don’t want to take anyway.

Camp Pokemon app goes mobile for iPhone and iPad

Camp Pokemon app goes mobile for iPhone and iPad

The new Camp Pokemon app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch isn’t the full Pokemon experience. It’ll do an amazing job of bringing you back to the glory days of Pokemon Snap, if that’s your brand of Poke-entertainment, but it’s not quite the full Poke-experience. It does show, on the other hand, how far The Pokemon Company International has gotten from their hard-bar ban on releasing any apps outside the Nintendo ecosphere. It shows that some day we might very well get the real deal.
