What we're going to do here is to make using or viewing Facebook Live very easy.

Whoops! WhatsApp isn’t all encrypted

Whoops! WhatsApp isn’t all encrypted

Wait just a second here - just yesterday WhatsApp announced they were completely encrypted, end-to-end, right? Apparently not. While messages and phone call content are, indeed, encrypted, some of the details surrounding these bits of communication are not. As it turns out, a deeper look at the terms and conditions included in this latest update for WhatsApp includes mention of what's not going to be hidden - and might indeed never be hidden should WhatsApp be called upon to share them with a legally-bound 3rd-party group.

Apple may soon let you hide stock apps on your iPhone and iPad

I've got an iPhone, and if you swipe all the way to the right on my home screen, you'll find an assortment of icons that I never touch. These are apps like Stocks, Watch, and Wallet. I don't have any desire to use any of these, and yet they remain. If I could get rid of them, I would. And soon, I just may be able to do that.

Google Reminders available on the web (and in Android, iOS)

Google Reminders available on the web (and in Android, iOS)

Today Google launches Reminders for web, an extension of Google Reminders that'll have users even more addicted to their abilities than before. Once you begin to use Google Reminders, you find yourself relying on them - trusting them to remind you of the most important bits and pieces in your life. I know I do. I really do. I'm terrible at remembering things. One I tell Google - through my Android device - to remind me to pick up milk at 5PM when I'm done with work, there's no way I'll remember it unless my device reminds me - and it does. Today there's more.

iPhone SE Review – Classic Remix

iPhone SE Review – Classic Remix

Did you love the iPhone 5s and rue the day Apple switched from crisp edges to comely curves on the iPhone 6? You'll probably approve of the iPhone SE, then, which goes excavating in the graveyard of Apple's design labs and comes up with a barely-changed riff on the classic.

iPhone SE gets dropped, smashed, and dunked in durability test

They say that it's what's on the inside that counts. With the iPhone SE, that's definitely the case. After all, the phone looks nearly identical to the 5s, which came out more than two years ago. The specs are far closer to those of the 6s, but how does it fare in a battery of tests designed to cause physical harm to the phone?

Apple wants to sell used iPhones in India, industry opposes

Apple wants to sell used iPhones in India, industry opposes

After China, India is quickly becoming the mobile industry's next darling, with smartphone makers scrambling to make a dent in the market. However, just because India is pretty much still considered to be an emerging market doesn't meant it's going to settle for something less. The country already rejected Facebook's temptation of free Internet because it actually confined users to a Facebook-approved corner of the Web. Now industry players are moving to block Apple's application to import and sell used iPhones for fear that it could undermine the country's economy and environment in the long run.

FBI’s iPhone-cracking trick unlikely to remain secret for long

The ongoing battle between Apple and the FBI over bypassing an iPhone's security during a criminal investigation took an interesting turn last week, when the government abruptly dropped its court appointment, saying it had found another method to get inside the iPhone 5c at the middle of San Bernardino terrorism case. Unfortunately for the FBI, this new trick for bypassing Apple's encryption is unlikely to remain a secret for long.

Clear space on your iPhone by watching a movie

Clear space on your iPhone by watching a movie

Today might be April Fool's day, so I'll preface this piece by letting you know that this isn't a prank of any sort. It very well may be some form of witchcraft or sorcery, but it does actually work. It turns out that you can free up a significant amount of space on your iPhone by doing little more than trying to watch a movie.

FBI will use its new tech to unlock another iPhone, iPod

FBI will use its new tech to unlock another iPhone, iPod

The FBI's legal battle with Apple over the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone came to a sudden end when a third-party approached the government agency with a possible way to unlock the iPhone. The planned court case was halted while the government tested the method, and a few days later the announcement was made: they'd unlocked the iPhone sans Apple's help. Now that word is out, law enforcement across the country is begging the government to unlock their own suspects' phones.
