iPads get a storage and price shakeup

iPads get a storage and price shakeup

Much attention has been lavished on the new iPhone 7, and 7 Plus, and the new Apple Watch, and rightly so. But that doesn’t mean that Apple isn’t showing the love for some of its existing products, namely its tablets. Behind the scenes, Apple has somewhat silently updated its listings for all iPads currently sold, both old and new, removing old storage capacities and adding new ones to keep them in line with the new iPhone 7. And the net effect is that you get more gigabytes for the same or lower price than before.

Pokemon GO update news: Eevee, IV calculator, egg chart, Reddit cheats

Today hacking Pokemon GO has set a number of next-generation updates free for the public, including but not limited to a Buddy Pokemon system, a new IV calculator, and a remixed Egg Chart. What more could a hardcore Pokemon GO user ask for? I say user because I've accepted the reality of the situation when it comes to developers of desktop app for the game (some of them hackers as such), and people who follow those trends (like me), are digital users - addicts with a need to see how far this global game can go. Not to cheat, of course, but to compete in a global software modification race! With Pokemon, of course.

Apple responds to Ireland tax allegations (plus a few Brexit facts)

Apple responds to Ireland tax allegations (plus a few Brexit facts)

Apple responds to allegations from the European Commission which suggested that the company was receiving illegal tax breaks from Ireland. In this letter, penned by Apple CEO Tim Cook, the company suggests that the EU is retroactively applying rules which should not apply to their taxation situation. Apple has their European base of operations in Ireland, having set that base up back in October of 1980, and has expanded throughout Ireland (and greater Europe) since. The European Commission suggests that Apple's way of paying taxes in Ireland is "illegal under EU state aid rules."

Pokemon GO Update: egg chart, iv calculator, Reddit cheats

Over the past couple of weeks a variety of big changes have weeded out some of the most prevalent Pokemon GO cheats, hacks, and exploits. Today we've got a list of working exploits of the game, as well as an updated Egg Chart and some IV Calculators that thus far seem to have avoided Niantic's ban gaze. This list has been compiled for two reasons. One, to keep gamers on top of what the cheaters are using to attempt to beat them. Two, to keep these developers on their toes - just as they, in turn, are keeping Niantic's developers on their toes.

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides finally embrace iPad split-view

Google's Office apps have finally - finally - embraced iOS 9's split-view support, ending one of the most confusing feature hold-outs ever to plague Apple's mobile platform. Split-screen multitasking was one of the most-anticipated aspects of iOS 9, addressing in one fell swoop criticisms that the platform was unsuitable to properly replace a laptop or Windows tablet that had plagued it since the first iPad.

iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

iOS App Store predicted to host 5 million apps by 2020

Earlier this year, Apple announced that the iOS App Store is now home to two million apps. That's an absurd number in its own right, but a new report from app analytics site Sensor Tower predicts that number could more than double to 5 million apps by 2020. That's a pretty huge prediction when you consider it took the App Store eight years to reach its two million milestone.

New Pokemon Go update : Sightings brings back footprints… sort of

This morning Niantic released an update to Pokemon GO which changed several very important elements in the game. This update was for both Android and iOS for iPhone and iPad, and users should expect to see footprints returning to the game soon. Not the same footprints as they saw when the game was launched - not a number of steps according to how close to or far away from a Pokemon the user was. This new update for Pokemon GO has two sections - Sightings and Nearby.
