Speaking publicly at the GeekWire Summit 2014, T-Mobile’s “Rockstar” CEO, John J. Legere poured water on the claims that Apple lacked attention-to-detail when it came to the integral build quality of the iPhone 6 Plus, citing that the few claims regarding the device’s physical ‘malleability’ when put under increased pressure were simply “horse****.”

In the profanity-filled segment that follows, the controversial CEO speaks candidly about the iPhone 6 Plus, and warns that ‘an amazing super-computer that you hold in your hand’ – shouldn’t be bent.



Legere’s comments on the whole sensationalised “bendgate” debate, follows trusted end-user product panelists – Consumer Reports – conducting a scientifically fair test on the new handset, to determine just how much pressure it would take to cause Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus to bend.


The test worked to show that the issue of a smartphone beginning to bend under extreme pressure was not exclusive to the iPhone 6 Plus, but rather was a “problem” that affects a wide range of handsets on the market – with each model requiring a different level of force before its core hardware could be ‘bent.’


According to Apple, only 9 people have complained of their handset being affected by “bendgate” since the new smartphone officially launched – on September 19.

Manual-iPhone5s


One of the things that iOS 8 brings to the table is an open door to App Developers to access the manual controls for the camera. Well it didn’t take long for Apps to appear in the App Store that take advantage of this new capability. “Manual” is just such an App. This App allows you full control over your image by allowing you to “manually” set the shutter speed, ISO, white

balance, focus and exposure bracketing. It even has a pretty cool “live” histogram that I must admit when I first saw it, I thought it was an audio meter. If you were shooting a challenging scene (such as a bright window in the background) with a DSLR, you could switch to manual and set your shutter speed and ISO. Now you have the same flexibility on your iPhone.

The interface is pretty straight forward and it definitely let’s me do exactly what I want when it comes to exposure control. The only thing I don’t seem to be able to control on my iPhone 5s is aperture. I see it displayed as 2.2, but it’s greyed out and that may be that on the iPhone 5s you can’t change it? Not sure. Otherwise the app does all that it claims to do and you can even switch between automatic and manual within the app.


You can get Manual here from the iTunes.

Four years ago I had the idea to build a blog network dedicated to reviewing and rounding up apps. We started with Mac apps and then quickly expanded to additional channels covering iOS, Android, Windows and Web apps. While the network has been successful in traffic and audience, reaching some 100m+ visitors over the four years, it’s ultimately not fit within our broader company mission. So I’m here today to announce that unfortunately after four years of app guidance, we’re closing AppStorm down.

iPad Air 2


Re/code’s John Paczkowski may actually have a legitimate friend on the inside of Apple because he has been pretty dead on when it comes to correctly identifying rumors. Back in August, the tech writer revealed that Apple would hold the iPhone event on Sept. 9.


Today, Paczkowski reports

that Apple is planning on holding its next media event on Oct. 16. My earlier prediction of Oct. 21 appears to be off the mark.



According to Re/code, Apple will hold the next media event on Thursday, Oct. 16 at Cupertino’s Town Hall Auditorium and not the flashy Flint Center. It is rumored that Apple will unveil the next generation of iPad Air and iPad mini, as well as an updated iMac line. Apple will also, hopefully announce the availability of OS X Yosemite and make Apple Pay ready for use.


I’d also like to see the Apple TV refresh that everyone keeps talking about. My set-top box is four years old now. I’m pretty sure that streaming media technology has improved a lot since 2010 and my outdated box doesn’t seem to be able to handle the load anymore. I’d love a more powerful, faster version.


Rumors surrounding the second generation of iPad Air include Touch ID and a slightly smaller frame. The device will supposedly come with a faster A8X processor chip, and might even include near-field communication technology so that it is compatible with Apple Pay.


Re/code’s information is probably true, which also means that the tablet might be ready for preorder the next day and ready to ship by Oct. 24. Here’s hoping.

Super BoxMan is a game from BigMoth Studios that puts you as a small box that has to dodge walls that come down at you from above by moving left and right across the screen to make it through the space in the walls. A good concept with an addictive quality, unfortunately there are a few issues that make the game more f

rustrating than playable.


To be honest, I’m not a huge mobile gamer. Generally when it comes to games I download they’re the pick up and play games, or puzzle games. Games that I can put down at a moment’s notice, but also play for hours if I let myself. This game fits in this category though, making it a good time killer while waiting in line at Starbucks. However, I think that because I don’t regularly play mobile games, this game is harder than it might be for hardcore mobile gamers. That being said, I enjoy playing on my Xbox and computer, so by no means am I alien to hand-eye coordination.


So when I opened this game, and tapped my way through the somewhat confusing menu (Just keep tapping, and you’ll be in the game soon enough) and started to play, I was immediately thrown by a few things. First of all, the controls are really sensitive. All you do is simply tap and hold the left or right side of the screen to get your BoxMan to move to the respective side. But he goes flying across that screen! Also, the colors of the entire game change at a constant rate, from red to green to blue to purple and so on. This would not be so bad, and even be a great distraction to achieving your goal, if it weren’t for the fact that the screen also constantly zooms in and out. This makes for a headache of a game to play, and should probably include a warning for those prone to seizures.


After getting used to those things though, the game does become quite addictive, with the desire to get just a little farther strong enough to tap “Retry” several times. That is, until you need to put the game down to take some Advil.


To recap: great playability in terms of the game’s addictive quality and concept, OK controls that take some time to adjust to due to their sensitivity, and bad graphics not in terms of looks per se (as I believe they purposefully go for a pixelated look) but rather in terms of the constant zooming in and out and color changing combination.


I recommend downloading it to see if you like it and can get past these issues. Just have a bottle of Advil nearby.

Brilliant Beer Packaging That Uses The Pantone Colour Palette

There are many types of beer that differ in taste and colour. Unfortunately most beer cans advertise the brand and brewery, rather than the alcohol itself. That is not the case with the new project by Spanish artist Txaber who

Read More
created a brilliant beer packaging design using Pantone’s colour charts and codes.


The cans and bottles he has designed are very minimal. The largest part part of them is filled with colour that reflects the tinge of the beer inside. All hues are taken from Pantone’s colour palette, which is famous for its accuracy and popularity among designers and manufacturers from all around the globe.


Apart from the colour, there’s a small stripe of white on every of Txaber’s cans and bottles. On it, using fancy and very unique typography, the designer put the name of the beer as well as the Pantone colour code. In general, packaging has a distinctive and strikingly minimal look that not only puts its contents first, but also makes it stand out from the competition.
