Apple agrees to analyze contents of iPhone found in boat of missing teens

An iPhone 6 is at the center of an investigation of two missing Florida teens. Last July, 14-year-olds Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen set out on a boat trip in the Atlantic Ocean, but both of the bodies went missing and boys never returned. The United States Coast Guard performed an eight-day search for the boys, but never found them. Last, month, however, their boat was recovered 100 miles off the shore of Bermuda and on the boat was Stephanos’ iPhone (via ABC News).

Kindle Oasis is beautiful, pricey and still not like reading a book

Oasis blurred I’ve spent the last week trying to pretend the new Kindle Oasis is the same as reading a real book. It’s not. I love books.

How many people can the Earth actually hold?

Earth Population
Earth may only be a tiny blip on the map relative to the entire universe, but for our purposes, it's pretty darn big. Of course, the vast majority of earth - about 70% - is comprised of water. Taking that into account, the actual area of land on earth is estimated to be around 150 million square kilometers. That being the case, Life Noggin recently set out to examine how many human beings the earth is capable of holding; not in a physical sense, but more in the sense of how many people can be sustained by the Earth's finite resources. Today, the earth's population checks in at about 7 billion, but that figure will only increase in the years ahead thanks to improvements in medicine and other health-positive factors. In fact, it's estimated that the human population by the end of the century will be 10 billion strong.

Clear iPhone 6s Case

A case is an absolute necessity for any iPhone, considering how slippery the aluminum that Apple uses is. And we all know that crystal clear cases are the way to go since they protect your iPhone without hiding that gorgeous design that Apple worked so hard on.

How-To: Find your MacBook’s battery cycle count and learn what it means about its battery life

After checking the battery cycle count, I learned that I was probably wrong about the battery being bad, as the cycle count was still well within the normal life span of my MacBook. Here’s how I was able to verify that everything was okay with my MacBook’s battery.

Developer hacks Apple Watch to boot and run Windows 95

Developer Nick Lee has managed to hack a working version of Windows 95 onto his Apple Watch. The utility of this is close to zero — but it is hilarious to watch. It highlights how smart wristwatches like Apple Watch are now as powerful as (if not more than) desktop computers from the turn of the century.
