iPhone 7 “hack” drills hole for headphones

iPhone 7 “hack” drills hole for headphones

It would appear that some massively uninformed iPhone 7 users are falling for a hoax of epic proportions. The folks at TechRax have created a video which suggests - in title, only, really - that there is a secret "hack" to gain access to the iPhone 7's (perhaps hidden) headphone jack. The idea here is that the iPhone 7 has the hardware it needs to allow a headphone jack, but Apple has just covered up the area we'd need to plug the cord in. Then comes the power drill.

When is the first Presidential Debate? Live Streaming video detailed

When is the first Presidential Debate? Live Streaming video detailed

Since the year 2008, the last time the United States had a presidential race that the entire world was interested in, a lot has changed in how we're able to access video. The age of Live Video Streams has truly dawned, and we're in a place where it'd more surprising to NOT see the debates available for live streaming online than if they were. And they are. And we've got all the links and video boxes and streamers in the world below, ready for the clicking and the watching.

GoPro Hero 5 release details: simply better

This week the folks at GoPro have revealed the GoPro Hero 5 (or Hero5), the most advanced in a line of action cameras that've all but dominated the market for the past several years. This newest version of the GoPro works with voice commands, too. Just in case GoPro users wanted to yell at their devices. This newest in the top-level line of action cameras comes around a year and a half after its predecessor - an eternity in tech device refresh time.

Dronesurfing pulls a surfer around the water

Dronesurfing pulls a surfer around the water

The folks over at Freefly Systems have invented a new sport called Dronesurfing. This isn't an autonomous or robotic surfboard that can be remotely controlled. Dronesurfing uses a flying drone pulling a towrope that a surfer can grab and get pulled around the water on some sort of thin surfboard that looks like a wakeboard.

Sony’s new Action Cam challenges GoPro with 4K, image stabilization

Sony has just announced the latest version of its Action Cam, the video camera designed to compete with market leader GoPro's offerings.

Japanese robotic sumo wrestling is completely autonomous

Japanese robotic sumo wrestling is completely autonomous

If you have ever seen the show "Battlebots" that airs in the US, you know that most of the robots used are set on destroying the competition literally rather than simply pushing them out of the ring. Robot Wars here in the US is also a competition that is as much about the humans who are controlling the robots via remotes as it is about the capabilities of the robots themselves. Japan has a robot sumo wrestling competition that is very different from what we see here in the US.

Bionic hand made from Keurig Coffee Maker

Bionic hand made from Keurig Coffee Maker

I've seen enough '80s action films to have a dubious disposition on anything bionic or cybernetic. I think we can probably rest assured that a bionic arm made out of a used Keurig coffee maker won't take over the world. A YouTuber called Terminal Cornucopia has created a bionic hand almost entirely out of parts taken from a disassembled Keurig coffee maker and called the hand Hedberg. I don't know why.

Bright blue fireball caught creeping in Siberia

Bright blue fireball caught creeping in Siberia

Siberia, the home of mysterious giant craters and frequent meteor strikes, has presented the world with yet another mystery: a bright blue fireball hovering over and slowly moving across the ground (or near to it). The individual recording the event believes it to be ball lightening, which is rarely seen and even more rarely caught on video. It doesn't appear any experts have weighed in on the matter yet, however, and the public has some other theories.

Interactive Dynamic Video could improve AR and eliminate CGI green screen

Interactive Dynamic Video could improve AR and eliminate CGI green screen

MIT researchers from the Computer Science and AI Laboratory are performing research into a new imaging technique called Interactive Dynamic Video or IDV. IDV allows users to reach in and touch objects that they are seeing in a video and could hold great promise for improving augmented reality. IDV uses traditional cameras and algorithms and looks at the tiny, nearly invisible vibrations that an object produces to build video simulations that users can interact with in a virtual environment.

ABC’s streaming service to offer older shows for free

ABC has relaunched a streaming service that takes a page from Crackle’s book — it offers the network’s older shows for free, as well as a handful of original series. The service is ad-supported rather than requiring a pay TV subscription or monthly payments, which is the case with FOX's new livestreaming service and the vast majority of VOD streaming options like Hulu. The content will be offered under "ABCd."

Vimeo app update makes purchases available on mobile

Vimeo app update makes purchases available on mobile

Vimeo is a video hosting website known for offering content that skews toward the more artistic side of the medium's spectrum. For this reason, the service attracted a lot of users with high-quality videos, and it soon became a destination for indie movies, short videos, film projects, and such. Over time, the service evolved to offer a for-pay on-demand video store, and now thanks to a recent Android and iOS update, users can access those purchases directly on their phone.

Streaming video services found in half of U.S. homes

Following years of reports about the growing number of cable cutters and those augmenting their traditional television subscription with streaming video, Nielsen has announced a new milestone for SVOD services: they're now found in half of all U.S. households, making them as ubiquitous as the ever-loved DVR. Per its latest ‘Total Audience Report,’ the number of U.S. adults using live television with DVR and watching time-shifted TV has nearly reached the same level as AM/FM radio users.
