“House of Cards” Season 5 delayed amid Netflix bumper growth

"House of Cards" season five won't air until Q2 2017, Netflix has confirmed today, disappointing fans of the award winning series. News that the show had been renewed for a fifth season was confirmed a year ago, in January 2016, before season four had even aired on the on-demand streaming service. However, we now know that there'll be longer to wait before we get to see it.

Gmail PSA: This phishing scam is all too easy to fall for

Gmail PSA: This phishing scam is all too easy to fall for

A simple but astonishingly effective Gmail scam continues to compromise even adept internet users, with phishers taking advantage of how browsers present URLs to steal emails and other information. The exploit presents users with what looks like a regular login page but, rather than being hosted by Google, is in fact running on a different server waiting to steal account details. What sets it apart in phishing terms is how well that server is hidden.

Leica M10 puts 24MP digital camera in a body analog fans will love

Leica has revealed its new M10 digital camera, but you'd be forgiven if you thought this was a film camera at first blush. Leica has focused on the form factor with this newest M-series release, attempting to make it as similar to analog M models as possible. The result, Leica says, is the slimmest digital M-series camera it has ever produced.

Galaxy S8 display glass tips teeny tiny bezels

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus seem to have been revealed all at once in a single photo. This photo depicts both devices - if we are to believe that this photo is indeed the real deal - both Galaxy devices rolling with curved edges. This fits with previous rumors of at least one Samsung Galaxy S8 device with both left and right edges curved instead of a flat device with a larger, curved-edge release partner. At the release date for these devices we would not be surprised to find this image's accuracy to be spot-on.

Apple’s latest lawsuit proves you just can’t please everyone

Apple finds itself the subject of a road safety lawsuit, facing demands to lock down the iPhone to prevent drivers from texting or other distractions while on the road. The case, Julio Ceja v. Apple Inc., was filed this week in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, and accuses the Cupertino firm of putting "profit before consumer safety" by continuing to allow the potentially dangerous practice. If it won't change iOS, the lawyers say, Apple should be made to cease sales of the iPhone in California altogether.

QCY Q29 Wireless Earbuds Review: AirPods on a budget

QCY Q29 Wireless Earbuds Review: AirPods on a budget

Apple's AirPods have made untethered Bluetooth earbuds mainstream, but the design itself -- that is, two untethered wireless ear pieces -- has been around for years. Go back far enough, and you'll find early models like the Sennheiser MX W1, a pair of big, clunky but functional earbuds that provided stereo audio without a wire tethering them together. As technology improves and prices substantially drop (the MX W1 retailed for $600 new), we've seen earbuds of this sort with increased frequency, and joining them are the QCY Q29 pair.

AT&T pulls the plug on its 2G network

We knew it was coming, but now AT&T has made it official: the carrier's 2G network is no more. AT&T announced this week that it has shut down its 2G network, a move that's been years in the making. The kicker is that the shutdown happened without most people even realizing it, as AT&T said the network has been inactive since January 1.

How to run the new Pokemon GO 2x Power Up exploit

How to run the new Pokemon GO 2x Power Up exploit

A new way to power up Pokemon in Pokemon GO has been discovered by a set of players hyper-obsessed with finding oddities. I say "new" because we've not seen this method for upgrading one's own Pokemon before. It could well have been in the code for the game since the beginning. The game launched back June of 2016 and it was several weeks before the first double-touch ability was discovered - there could be more on the way.
