We're suddenly very envious of readers with one of Pioneer's recent NEX multimedia receivers in their car dashboard, which can now be upgraded to Apple CarPlay. Our Thursday Morning Report also has details on Apple's new iCloud tool for checking Activation Lock Status, as well as a new Logitech keyboard case for iPad Air. Don't delay, the news awaits!
Did you know Samsung now has its own terminal at Heathrow Airport in London? According to Android Central, the Korean smartphone giant managed to cut a deal with one of the world's busiest airports to rebrand Terminal 5 as "Terminal Samsung Galaxy S5" starting today (May 19), and running for the next two weeks. And hey, if that type of advertising sways you, the company's latest flagship handset will be available for purchase at Dixons Travel stores in the very same terminal. But that's far from the only big deal going down this past weekend, as our recap reveals...
Giant TV. Check. Super-rad universal remote. Check. Speakers
strategically placed around the room so that when stuff blows up
onscreen you actually feel it in your belly. Check. A/V receiver that
supports up to 7.1 surround sound and the iPhone. Surprise--check!
While the iPhone has taken over your pocket and possibly your car, home
theater rigs have been noticeably late to the iPhone party.
Fortunately, the folks at Pioneer have taken notice of the iPhone and
its league of faithful users with the release of the VSX-819H home
receiver. Instead of relying on 1/8-inch cables, the system includes a
USB port with a USB-to-dock cable.
