iPhone users report serious battery drain problem on iOS 10.1.1

iOS 10.1.1 Battery Drain

If you're brave enough to download and install an iOS update the moment it's available, you might find yourself dealing with some strange battery quirks since the iOS 10.1.1 update. If so, you're not alone.

It seems that some iPhone owners are finding themselves with batteries that spontaneously shut down despite their devices showing that they have plenty of battery left. As Forbes reports, the Apple support forums — which are always a great place to find early adopters who have discovered unexpected bugs — is teeming with iOS 10.1.1 users whose devices are dying with 30% or more of their battery indicator remaining.

Strolling through the line at Snapchat’s NYC Spectacle store

Snap, the social media company formerly known as Snapchat, has launched a Spectacles pop-up shop in NYC. Inside the store, there is a Snap Bot (a vending machine full of Spectacles). Outside the store, there is a line — a long, winding line of people who stand out in the freezing cold to buy a pair of Snapchat-capable sunglasses. Personally, I have trouble justifying standing outside in… Read More

How long until Facebook Frames?

Summer portrait of happy afro american young woman wearing summer clothes and sunglesses, standing against blue background and laughing at camera. Snapchat’s Spectacles are already causing huge lineups and mild millennial frenzy in LA now that they’re on sale via super-exclusive Snapbot vending machines. It’s almost inevitable that Facebook copies this, too, so gird your nose bridge for Facebook Frames. Here’s our exclusive (and very fake) early preview of their promo site copy, which unsurprisingly looks a lot… Read More

Meet the woman who won Halloween: Southwest Airlines worker dresses as exploding Note 7

Best Halloween Costumes
Halloween 2016 is officially behind us, and the day after Halloween is all about looking back through all your pictures to see everyone's costumes. It's also always fun to dig around online and see all of the creative costumes people came up with for themselves... and for their pets, obviously. Some people spent weeks or even months planning out their Halloween costumes, and they managed to put together some truly impressive creations. As impressive as some of those costumes were, there can be only one official winner and we found it.

The 25 best Twitter reactions from Trump and Clinton’s final Presidential debate

Trump Vs Clinton
While yesterday's third and final U.S. Presidential debate began rather slowly, the intensity quickly picked up as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton inevitably began picking each other apart amidst a back-and-forth that was filled with name-calling and bold accusations. As was to be expected, the debate was rife with meme-worthy soundbites and verbal zingers. From Donald Trump inventing the word "Bigly" to Trump and Clinton arguing over which candidate was a bigger puppet, yesterday's debate was a sad yet hilarious reminder that the current election has been the most bizarre, entertaining, and at the same time, depressing U.S. Presidential election in recent memory.

Burning Galaxy Note 7 handsets make the best Halloween costume of 2016

Galaxy Note 7 Exploding
If you're anything like me, your Halloween costume "plans" probably involve a last-minute run through your closet and wondering if you really need colored contacts to be that guy from Twilight. But this year, you can be much simpler: Get a couple faintly phone-sized boxes, some fake smoke, and prepare to scare all your friends and the local fire department.

11 things to do with your old headphones now that Apple has ruined your life

iphone-7-headphones
It was hard to swallow at first, but now that the iPhone 7 has officially launched, it's time to come to terms with the fact that the 3.5mm headphone jack is dead. How will you ever survive?! If you want to listen to music on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you'll either need Lightning or Bluetooth headphones, both of which Apple will be happy to sell you. But what are you supposed to do with your old, wired headphones?

How to get the iPhone 7’s biggest feature without needing to upgrade

apple-plugs
There's no need to spend $649 to get all the functionality of Apple's latest iPhone. Thanks to this clever hack, you can have all the benefits of the iPhone 7 with just a tenth of the wallet hit. Removing the headphone jack was, without a doubt, the most innovative move from Apple today. Forget the dual-lens camera, the ridiculously fast processor or waterproofing: the best new feature is vanishing the headphone jack. By removing that and replacing it with two expensive Bluetooth earbuds, Apple has forever removed the problem of having to plug in your headphones, listening to music for more than five hours at a time, or being happy.

Hydraulic Press Dynamite
Unlikely internet celebrity Lauri Vuohensilta is the Finnish genius behind Hydraulic Press Channel, a YouTube channel that does...well, you can probably guess. Vuohensilta made his name crushing such mundane items as red-hot nickel balls and rubber ducks, but he's finding ways to keep things interesting months later. Yes, those ways do involve dynamite.

Dolphin teaches human that iPad pictures are dumb

Dolphin iPad Snatch
The iPad has a camera, but that doesn't mean you should take it places and use it like a camera. In fact, if you do that, you are an objectively awful human being. But don't just take my word for it: this dolphin, a member of another highly intelligent species, clearly agrees. This golden moment was captured on film at SeaWorld Orlando, made infamous by 2013 documentary Blackfish. Fox 11 has the full clip, captured by SeaWorld season pass holder (yep, that's a thing!)  Kuadiel Gomez.
