Of course there's iPad 3 rumors, of course there are. You'd be a fool not to expect them. Our only surprise is that they haven't reached such feverish blistered fingers hot levels yet. Maybe it's because Tim Cook's iPhone 4S was such a lukewarm affair compared to the Steve mojo. At any rate, we've got that and a few other spicy bits for you to chew on in this week's muy caliente roundup.
If you're a regular Spotify user, you probably know that you're favorite music service just got even better. It now features the inclusion of featured-filled apps! No longer will you have to to switch to your browser to find new music or listen to internet radio--apps make it possible to do all that from right within Spotify.
While the selection is still a little bare, we have to say the concept shows a lot of promise--apps really make Spotify the only music service you'll want to use. To add them to your account just browse through the apps section in your Spotify menu and hit "add." You won't want to miss out on these!
It’s been an interesting week in the tech world, particularly for fans of “personalized reader” apps who now have a trio of solid choices that work on screens small and large (thanks to the new Google Currents and both Zite and Flipboard going universal on the iPhone). Hey, maybe you’re even reading this right now from your Currents app -- if so, you probably want to get on with the day’s news, so here’s the best and brightest from Friday, December 9, 2011.
Probably the coolest hack we've ever seen went down this week, as well as Apple letting a tethering app slip through the store before AT&T and pals whined like little babies and had it pulled. But that wasn't all, there was just about the biggest game of the year and more in the hottest stories of the week.
Holy moley, can November really be over already? Tomorrow, December will be upon us and the deafening rumble of Santa’s sleigh won’t be far behind. Most of us are already getting in the holiday spirit, which gives us little time to catch up on what’s happening in the tech world. So without further ado, here’s a taste of what’s new for this Wednesday, November 30, 2011.
It's Black Friday, and you might be sleeping off your pre-dawn shopping binge and missed the news; but it's also the day after Thanksgiving, so you might have been too busy stuffing cranberry sauce into your chops to keep up; and, last but not least, it's two days after you sat for hours in bumper to bumper holiday traffic, where you couldn't see these hot news stories. Luckily for you, we have a sweet leftover plate of the week's hottest newsflashes and we know you're going to gorge yourself on these awesome Apple stories.
Let’s get ready to turkeeeeeeyyyyy! Okay, maybe that’s a bit too excitement for gathering around the table with loved ones and carving up some unlucky bird, but it’s Thanksgiving Eve and the anticipation of a huge meal on Thursday coupled with the contact high of Black Friday sales must have us buzzing. And hey, there’s actually other stuff going on today that doesn’t relate to Turkey Day, so here’s all the news for Wednesday, November 23, 2011.
We’ve got three words for you today: Short work week! For our U.S. readers, Thanksgiving is this Thursday and many folks have an extra day off on Friday, which means you’ll have a longer weekend at play than you will working three days this week. (Our apologies to those of you who don’t get to enjoy that scenario. We feel your pain.) But there’s still plenty of news floating around the interwebs, and we’ve collected some of the best stuff for you to read on this fine Monday, November 21, 2011.
This started annoying me about twenty minutes ago, so I thought I'd write about it to express my discontent with the constant sharing that every app seems to do these days. This kind of constant posting is bound to get me "hidden" by my Facebook friends. Also, unsubscribed to. We wouldn't want that, now would we?
Not crazy about the changes made to Facebook this week? As it turns out, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at the company’s F8 event on Thursday to unveil the company’s new direction, which includes a new way to display your life and plenty of music and video content yet to come.
