You've got to hand it to Verizon Wireless -- the nation's largest carrier isn't afraid to go it alone rather than leap into a pricing war with its three smaller rivals. But could their attachment to traditional two-year contracts, higher prices and handset subsidies be short-sighted? For now, executives claim no, and they seem to have the numbers to back it up. This and more in our Monday recap!
The nuances of Formula One racing are mostly imperceptible to the layman. It's all angular momentum and downforces; a system of geometry, physics, and engineering in which minute adjustments have outsized effects. As a result, a game like F1 2013—the latest of Codemasters’ annual racing series, brought to Mac by Feral Interactive—tends to require technical precision and strict execution.
When it comes to streaming movies, Mac users already have plenty of options like Netflix and Hulu — but a new application seems likely to ruffle feathers in Hollywood by turning torrent files into free, desktop-based cinema.
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Occasionally you may have the need to create a file with a large starting size. Such files are generally good for testing things like local network copy speed tests, Internet upload speed, or any number of other use cases. Usually you'd either write a script to copy bits into a file to make the file occupy a given amount of space, or you'd open your favorite text editor and begin to create a file the old-fashioned way. But, if you're in need of a test file that occupies a given amount of space, the mkfile command can be on your side.
When LG says, "Talk to the hand" they mean it! Wait until you get a load of the Korean manufacturer's latest commercial for the LG G Flex, which finds a seemingly normal dude making out with his hand by the end of the two-minute spot. (If you don't believe us, just fast-forward.) Thankfully, not all of Thursday's news was quite so bizarre, and we're talking about the weekend that SXSW kicks off in Austin here...
If you're a fan of digital comic books or even a casual reader, chances are you woke up this morning to an email from ComiXology detailing a mandatory password reset after discovering a database security breach.
Apple faced another setback in its ongoing patent spat with Samsung overnight as Judge Lucy Koh dished out a denial of Cupertino's attempt to gain a permanent injunction against the Korean manufacturer. It's certainly far from the end of that legal skirmish and Apple still has an opportunity to appeal the decision, but it also offers Samsung some wiggle room as well. Thankfully, the rest of today's overnight recap is (mostly) less dramatic, so let's dive in...
