iPhone6 Schematics Possibly leaked

You hear it out there in the wind every time a new iPhone is coming out, "it's gonna have a bigger screen!" In the end, Apple makes the screen .01 inches bigger and tells you that it is because the measurements are ideal to fit in your hand. The iPhone6 comes with the same rumors, BIGGER SCREEN. But we have an image of claimed Foxconn schematics of the iPhone6 with a 4.7 inch screen. This makes it far more [...]

Facebook Messenger is #1…Twice

Ever see a movie or TV show that is so bad you can't help but go see it again? Is the Facebook Messenger App in that category? The Facebook Messenger app is the number one free app in the App Store today. It also has the dreaded one star rating. Many people are very upset since Facebook forced Apple and Android device users into Facebook Messenger. This app is nothing new. It was created in 2011, but users have been [...]

Yahoo and Encryption

Yahoo and Encryption

Yahoo is one of the most popular email service providers today. It's also one of the most hacked. Now Yahoo is fighting back. At a Black Hat Conference in Las Vegas, Yahoo officials announced end-to-end capabilities for all Yahoo Mail users. This should be ready in 2015. End-to-end encryption is like a narrow tunnel exclusively for the email sender and receiver, squeezing uninvited parties like cyber hackers and dare I say it, government agencies out. The ironic thing is, [...]

Is This Russian Censorship?

Russia is enforcing new rules on Internet bloggers. As of today, August 1, all blogs having at least 3,000 readers a day will face stricter government scrutiny, such as ban of explicit language, this seems like Russian Censorship to me. This new code nicknamed Bill on Bloggers was signed by Russian president Putin in May 2014. Any blogger with 3,000+ visitors a day must register with Russian government watchdog Roskomnadzor. They'll be under the same restrictions as mainstream journalist. Restrictions [...]


Comcast vs. Customer Service

Comcast is the largest and most respected cable provider, Internet service provider, and one of the biggest telephone service providers in the world. Despite all these accomplishments, Comcast is one of the most hated companies today, and a customer service episode doesn't help matters much. Controversy and fallout continue after an embarrassing service call. A customer named Ryan Block calls to cancel his Comcast service. Instead of complying with Block's wants, the Comcast rep demands, borderline bullies Block, for an [...]
