    Next year it'll be kinetic energy charging that powers it by throwing.

    As advertised, using the new "Wave" technology in iOS 8 will quickly fill your phone's battery—with fire, smoke, and explosions, that is. But that hasn't stopped wide-eyed Internet users for falling for the expensive prank.

  2. Apple Caved and Gave iTunes Users a Way to Delete Their Free U2 Album

    DELETE. DELETE.

    iTunes users were none too happy to find that Apple's free gift U2 album was inserted into their music library without their permission. "What if I'm at a judgmental hipster party and U2 comes on shuffle?! I'll be humiliated!" They cried. So, Apple has introduced a way to permanently delete the album from your iTunes account if simply hiding it just isn't enough for you.

  5. Samsung’s “It Doesn’t Take a Genius” Ads Mocking Apple’s Announcements Sure Didn’t Take Long

    I only wish these weren't so accurate.

    In the world of computers, Apple may still be able to play the scrappy underdog card, but in the mobile arena, they're the ones attracting the attack ads from those who would challenge their dominance. Samsung wasted no time throwing together this "It Doesn't Take a Genius" ad series mocking all the fairly mockable moments from Apple's iPhone 6/Apple Watch announcement stream on Tuesday. (Full series of ads after the jump.)

  7. Fan Sues Apple Over Charging Separately For Both Halves Of Breaking Bad‘s Fifth Season

    Better call Saul!

    AMC's recent trend of splitting up the seasons of their shows into two distinct sections has its fair share of detractors (like those of us who would just like to recap all the dumb zombie shenanigans in one go... cough). But surprisingly it's Apple, who packaged the two halves into separate season passes on iTunes and are now facing lawsuits from customers, who's feeling the burn this time around. It's okay, guys, I know a good lawyer for this.

  9. Pandora’s Diversity Numbers Are Mostly Good News for Women, Not So Much for People of Color

    Or, more accurately: lack-of-diversity numbers.

    Even if the diversity numbers haven't been exactly encouraging, it's still great to see that tech companies are willing to acknowledge the problem by being transparent about it. Now the Internet radio streaming service Pandora has released their diversity numbers, and they're a lot better than the rest for women, but still not so much for everyone else.

    No, this is not a spam email. I promise.
