1 Samsung Finally Launches Official Recall of the Exploding Note 7

Last week, the CPSC said it was working with Samsung to recall phones and urged all Galaxy Note 7 owners to shut the phones off and cease using them. That notice came a week after Samsung issued a voluntary recall of the product, after dozens of consumers reported Galaxy Note 7 devices catching on fire.

T-Mobile Warns: Don't Download iOS 10

Here at PCMag Labs, we updated five in-house iPhones to iOS 10 yesterday, and the process went smoothly for all but one handset, which needed to be connected to iTunes to update. Our mobile analyst Ajay Kumar is a T-Mobile customer and had no trouble updating his personal iPhone 6s Plus, so the experience varies.


T-Mobile issued a stern warning to its customers against downloading and installing the new iOS 10 update to their existing 6, 6 Plus and SE iPhone models. According to the T-Mobile website , doing so will, cause the handset to "lose connectivity [to the T-Mobile network] in certain circumstances." Once that happens, the user can only re-establish their network connection by fully powering down the phone and restarting it. That said, the company does expect Apple to push a corrective patch live within the next 48 hours.

US consumer safety group recalls the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has officially recalled the Galaxy Note 7, noting that its lithium-ion battery can overheat and catch fire. This follows a recall that Samsung itself implemented in early September. Shortly after this initial rollback, the CPSC published a statement urging anyone with a Galaxy Note 7 to power it down and stop charging it, and Samsung said it was working with the safety group on an official government recall.

This is the 'Rape Joke' That's Rocking Apple

Of course, Danielle’s story is just one incident detailed by Mic, which says it obtained 50 pages of emails from current and former Apple employees. And the emails certainly appear to show Apple has a problem with how women are treated in the workplace. Among the incidents detailed by Mic include a woman who said she sat in a meeting with dozen men who “stereotyped women as being nags.” She was later told by a male manager to smile as he walked past. Another woman said she was given the option of staying in her position, which Apple allegedly admitted was in a hostile environment, or take a lower paying, lower ranking job. A male employee said he was constantly referred to as emotional and on his “Man Period.”

Samsung’s replacement Note 7s will be in US stores by September 21st

Moments ago Samsung announcement  a formal, CPSC-backed recall of the Galaxy Note 7 in the United States. And in a press release dealing with that news, Samsung also provided an update on when its new, replacement Note 7s (with safe batteries inside, hopefully) will reach retailers: they'll be arriving by next week. "We confirmed that new Note 7 replacement devices will be available in the United States at most retail locations no later than September 21st, 2016," the company said in a statement.

The Blair Witch Sequel Was Born Out of a Teenage Obsession

We’ve all fantasized about making sequels to our favorite movies. That’s why when they actually happen, they’re usually a letdown. Nothing can live up to our expectations. However, for Adam Wingard, he actually got to make his teenage dream happen. He got to make Blair Witch .

How to Exchange Your Samsung Galaxy Note 7

If you have an affected phone, don’t delay. The CPSC also reported new statistics regarding Note 7 incidents in the US. According to the commission, the recall impacts about 1 million phones in the US, and that in the short time it has been available, the Note 7 has been the cause of 92 separate incidents with 26 reports of burns and 55 reports of property damage. A small percentage in general, but a huge defect when compared to other smartphones.

Tesla Accuses Executive in Lawsuit of Impersonating Musk

Tesla Motors Inc. sued a man it said was the chief financial officer of a firm that works for the oil industry, accusing him of trying to impersonate Elon Musk in an e-mail to get nonpublic data about the automaker.

AngelList Braces for Rainy Days as Startup Seed Funding Falls

The rapid rise of AngelList coincided with a startup boom. The website has facilitated seed investments by mainly wealthy Americans in more than 1,000 startups, as well as funding for some later-stage companies, including Cruise Automation and Dollar Shave Club, which were each acquired this year. AngelList typically takes a 5 percent cut of the profit from each investment made through its platform, which it collects once a startup gets bought or goes public. It also plays the role of investor—through a $20 million fund, which it recently exhausted, and a newer $35 million fund.

11 Apple Is on a Moderation Rampage After Porn Was Found in iOS 10

Earlier today, our colleagues at Deadspin discovered something strange about the new gif search in iOS 10's iMessage: Inadvertently do the wrong search, for, say, the word “huge,” and you could be looking straight at a stranger’s genitals (or a cartoon horse’s , as the case may be).

The first crop of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases you can buy

Sure, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t ship until September 16, but you can get a protective case for your soon-to-be new phone right now. And you’ll need a new case —the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have the same dimensions as the 6s and 6s Plus, but the new cameras on the iPhone 7 won’t fit the camera opening on most 6s cases. Here’s a first look at what’s already on the market.

'South Park: The Fractured But Whole' delayed to early 2017

When The Fractured But Whole (still not old) finally hits the market, don't expect it to come with any ready-made DLC options. Stone and Parker have been vocal about their resistance to producing DLC as a way to generate cheap cash from content on the cutting-room floor, though they have some ideas about extra scenes they might add to the new game down the line.

Supergirl Has a Superman Hype Problem

Did you hear? Superman joined Supergirl ! But did you know that Superman wasn’t the only character cast for the new season of the hit new-to-CW show? It’s true—but you probably didn’t know that, because 90 percent of what we’ve seen about the new season so far is related solely to the big guy in blue spandex.

Monoprice has always been known for making cheap, high-quality gear. But now the company is taking that approach to higher-end audio products with its new Monolith line.

The Theme of American Horror Story's New Season Is Way Less Weird Than the Format

It’s framed as “inspired by true events,” and name-dropping “Roanoke” suggests that those early rumors of the show being about the Lost Colony might actually be correct. But though most of it was set in what’s supposed to be North Carolina—where the main characters flee after being targets of a violent crime on the mean streets of Los Angeles—the first episode was mostly a contemporary haunted-house tale. They arrive at an 18th-century farmhouse, as otherworldly as any structure that we’ve ever seen on AHS , which serves as the backdrop for some decent scares, including a creepy (and maybe-spectral) home invasion captured by security cameras.

The sold-out iPhone 7 Plus and jet black iPhone 7 won't be in stores tomorrow

That doesn’t mean your carrier won’t have a 7 Plus or jet black 7 in stock, although T-Mobile and Sprint have both confirmed that preorders have been through the roof. T-Mobile CEO John Legere said on Twitter that iPhone 7 preorders surpassed iPhone 6 four times, and Sprint said “new and existing customers have been placing orders for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus at a rate nearly four times greater than this time last year.”

Apple iPhone 7

Under the hood, the iPhone 7 has a new A10 Fusion processor. iPhones always feel fast on the demo table, and this one did too. As with previous processors, we'll see the advantages kick in as new third-party apps come out or when your phone is trying to do a lot of heavy lifting, such as in new games. The new quad-core processor uses a common strategy known as big-little to pair two slow, low-powered cores that don't use much battery life, with two fast, high-powered cores that kick in when needed. That may help the iPhone 7's battery life, which Apple says will last two hours longer than the battery in the iPhone 6s Plus does.

How Apple is already moving past the iPhone 7

Whether we’re talking about cables or iCloud, Apple’s goal for its devices has always been operational independence. Over the past few iOS versions, Apple has been working to enhance and expand the iOS experience, giving hands-free Siri a central role while de-emphasizing the importance of our apps. You can see it with the Apple Watch and the new AirPods, but nowhere is this more evident than with the CarPlay system. Just like the iPhone was imagined as something of a stripped-down and distilled version of macOS, CarPlay boils iOS down to its most essential functions and takes focused navigation completely out of the equation. Apps are present but they’re wholly unnecessary—the integrated system is what matters.

Jon Snow is evil and angry in 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare'

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare brings the war (and the fare) to space, and it's taking Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington and UFC fighter Conor McGregor along for the ride. Unfortunately, Activision and Infinity Ward didn't take this opportunity to make the world's best buddy-cop action-comedy game. Instead, Harington plays the evil Admiral Salen Kotch of the Settlement Defense Front and McGregor is his muscle, Captain Bradley Fillion. They're a pair of bad dudes in space suits and in the story campaign, it's your job to take them down.

Leica’s new instant camera has a selfie mode

The Sofort is a strange duck. It’s a $300 instant camera by premium manufacturer Leica that looks a bit like a real world version of the Instagram logo. The price puts it well over Fujifilm’s offerings that also run on the Japanese company’s Instax technology, but this Leica we’re talking about here, so it’s really only natural that there will be a notable premium in pricing.

FBI Director Once Again Says You Should Put Tape Over Your Webcam

“There’s some sensible things you should be doing and that’s one of them,” Comey said during the Center for Strategic and International Studies conference. “You go into any government office and we all have the little camera things that sit on top of the screen. They all have a little lid that closes down on them. You do that so that people who don’t have authority don’t look at you. I think that’s a good thing.”

Walt and Nilay review the iPhone 7

Last week on Ctrl-Walt-Delete , we were fresh off the Apple event, and we shared our first impressions of the new gadgets that were announced. This week, we saw reviews from both  Walt and  Nilay about the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The two compare notes on their feelings about Apple's latest product, as well as its timeliness in light of competitor Galaxy Note 7's  batteries exploding .

House Republicans Are Trying to Blackball the Climate Investigation into Exxon

Some of this is political theater. Yesterday, Texas Republican Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Science Committee, heard arguments from a panel of experts— two of whom work for Exxon-funded think tanks —on why his committee has the authority to intervene in the investigations into Exxon’s denialism. But if this is theater, it is not over once the curtain closes. Displays like this further confuse the public about how science is done. And it drags out the spurious narrative that science isn’t in consensus about climate change, its causes, and effects. That affects everyone living on this warming planet.

Publishers can now sell subscriptions within Apple News

Before this change, publishers could only monetize content inside Apple News via advertisements. Publications that put the bulk of their content behind paywalls needed to build their own apps, and sell subscriptions through them, potentially limiting audience size. This change lets publications find customers within an app that comes with the iPhone.

The bacon egg and cheddar is the platonic ideal of the breakfast sandwich, but if salty pork or cheese is a little heavy for five-day-a-week consumption, consider lightening up your morning meal with a bit of fruit.

It Might Take Longer Than You Think For The Future Of Banking To Arrive

Since launching in 2012, the company has only signed on 15 banks into its network, which span the U.K, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, the U.S. Canada, and China. These include banks like Santander, UBS, ReiseBank, CIBC, National Bank of Abu Dhabi, Siam Commercial Bank, and ATB Financial. While Ripple can tout some big-name banks, its still only works with a tiny share of worldwide banks. For perspective, there were slightly more than 6,000 FDIC insured institutions in the U.S. alone as of August. Ripple has also signed partnerships, which it hopes will spread its network wider. Two are with Fortune 500 consultancies Accenture and Deloitte, entities that could encourage their banking clients to sign on with Ripple. The company is also working with U.K payments network Earthport, which aims to better connect major world banks, and CGI, a firm that has integrated Ripple into a payment gateway for financial services clients. But even with its existing progress, the slog to world domination is likely to take a while for Ripple. Blockchain companies like Ripple hold a lot of promise for the future of banking, but the technology hasn't proven itself.

Can A Drive-Thru Salad Bar Change Fast Food Forever?

What’s really cool is we proved that this is not a middle class concept. This is not an upper middle class concept. And that is what drives us every day. That is our mission. We’ll have people say, ‘I would pay $14 for your salad," and we say, "Well, if you’re willing to spend $14 for a salad then clearly you’re doing something right." You value your food and you can afford it, and you have that luxury. But what’s really great is we have people that come to us and say, ‘I have swapped you out from my normal drive-thru stomping ground.’ And that’s what’s so cool: Our salads and our price are the same as a traditional drive-thru salad.

How to Turn off 'Raise to Wake' on Your iPhone in iOS 10

If you don’t find your iPhone model in this list, then unfortunately it means that ‘Raise to Wake’ isn’t supported on your device. Otherwise, if you own one of the supported devices then read the guide below to find out how to enable or disable Raise to Wake.

How This Weird Dinosaur Used Camouflage to Evade Predators

In a new study published in Current Biology , Bristol paleontologists Jakob Vinther and Innes Cuthill show that the extinct Psittacosaurus (pronounced sit-a-ko-saurus), meaning parrot lizard, was light on its underside, while darker on top. Scientists refer to this color pattern countershading, and it’s commonly seen in modern animals. The presence of this pattern suggests that Psittacosaurus lived in an environment with diffuse light, like a forest, and that it used its camouflage to hide from predators.

12 little-known tips and tricks for Apple Music

Siri in iOS 10 is way more powerful, but Apple’s personal assistant has been making Apple Music easier to use since its launch. Here are a few of my favorite Siri capabilities when it comes to managing my tunes: When you’re listening to a song, say, “Play more like this one,” to create an immediately personalized playlist tailored right to your mood. You don’t even have to know the name of the song you want to listen to. Just ask Siri to play hits from a certain year or that one song from that one TV show, and she knows what to do. Siri can shuffle play any playlist or album you want her to. Siri can add songs to your collection.

Uber will repay thousands of riders for misleading them about tips

For over a year, users claimed Uber charged them a 20 percent tip for drivers, but then would only pass along less than half the tip amount to those drivers. Uber collected about $860,000 from users for the gratuity charge, according to the court filing.

iOS 10 ruins T-Mobile service for some upgraded iPhones

According to T-Mobile, the bug lies on Apple's side of things and doesn't impact the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 6S Plus . A fix for the issues being experienced by some of its customers is coming and is said to arrive within the next day or two. For a temporary fix, the carrier is suggesting the ol' reliable "turn it off and back on again" trick. One user stated that flipping his phone into airplane mode worked as well.

What Is Walking Pneumonia, and How Is It Different Than Regular Pneumonia?

But it’s totally possible to have a mild case of pneumonia, and this is where “walking” pneumonia comes in. If you’re an otherwise healthy person, and the virus or bacterium that infects you isn’t a particularly dangerous one, you might not have any symptoms worse than a cough and a little fatigue. Symptoms may also include a fever and chills.

» That Sentimental Feeling Matthew L. Jockers

Before releasing the package, I was fairly confident that the machine was doing a good job of approximating what human beings would think. I hoped that others, like David and Ted, would provide further validation. Many folks posted results online and many more emailed me saying the tool was producing trajectories that matched their sense of the novels they applied it to, but no one conducted anything beyond anecdotal spot checking.  After returning to UNL in late August (I had been on leave for a year), I hired four students to code the sentiment of every sentence in six contemporary novels:  All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, and The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks.

“It can change its chassis shape to match anything from a Fiat 500 to a limousine,” says Alistair Thompson, from The Mill, the special effects company behind the Blackbird. It can change its width by up to 10 inches and its length by four feet. The Mill can program its electric motors to make it behave like the car’s it’s emulating—slow or fast acceleration, gear change lurches, front or rear wheel drive.
