Best Stands for your MacBook

Best Stands for your MacBook

You have a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. Using it on your desk can be a pain in the neck, literally, if you bend your neck too far down to see the screen. The solution? A stand. Certainly any height adjustment will do — you can stack some phone books (remember those?) or a box underneath your MacBook and level the screen with your eye line. But some companies make stands especially designed for the MacBook — here's a roundup of some of my favorites.

European ruling opens up the cabin for in-flight phone calls, Internet access

Through a new decision made by the European Aviation Safety Agency, or EASA, the doors may be opening up to in-flight phone calls, emails, and streaming video on a flight in Europe in the future. Though EASA had allowed the use of personal electronic devices (PEDs) on flights in airplane mode last year, the new ruling on Friday would allow these devices to remain on whether or not they are placed into a transmission-restrictive airplane mode.

Phones 4u won't refund or deliver iPhone 6 pre-orders after all, but Carphone Warehouse will

There was some hope that as UK mobile phone retailer Phones 4u shut down that those that had pre-ordered an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus from them would be made whole in one way or another. In fact, they had promised two weeks ago when all this went down that those pre-orders that had not yet shipped would be refunded. Well… not anymore.

Players use their smartphone as a motion controller, and any screen with browser access as the primary game display. You need to match up with the movements of the dancer on the TV, laptop, or tablet, and are scored based on how closely you mimic the movements. If you're feeling brave, you can share video clips of your sweet, sweet dance moves to social media.

How to use archive and trash simultaneously in the iOS 8 Mail app

How to use archive and trash simultaneously in the iOS 8 Mail app

One of the main reasons I've used third party mail apps such as Mailbox for such a long time is because the stock iOS Mail app has never made it easy to use archive and trash simultaneously. Sometimes I don't want to archive an email, I want to delete it. And other times I want to archive but not delete. If I can't have both options conveniently at my fingertips, that doesn't work for me. Luckily, iOS 8 brings swipe options that actually let archive and trash play nice together for the first time. You've just got to change a few settings first!

Why bad bugs hit good people

Why bad bugs hit good people

Software is buggy. Humans write and test software and humans are imperfect; as a result, so is software. This is the reality of software and should come as a surprise to nobody. What can be surprising are the kind of bugs we actually see make their way out into the wild. We've seen two very prominent examples this week. The first was the release of iOS 8.0.1 on Wednesday which broke cellular service and Touch ID for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. The very same day we saw a huge bug in bash publicly disclosed; a vulnerability leaving millions and millions of personal computers, servers, embedded systems, and who knows how many other types of Internet-connected devices open to attack. And for most people, it's baffling how bugs like this could ever find their way into the world. Aren't developers supposed to be smart? The bash bug may be obscure enough that many end-users don't understand it, but what about iOS 8.0.1? How could such a big piece of software ship with such a glaring bug that broke such critical pieces of functionality?

All-new Moto X gets reviewed, decidedly not an iPhone 6

While I've been working away on my iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews, Phil Nickinson from Android Central has been knocking out his Moto X review. (Yes, it's kinda like new iPad or HTC One, in that there's no way to differentiate it from last year's model other than to add a year designator — 2014 — behind it, which not only doesn't solve problems but causes them. Let's stop that, shall we?). So, what does Phil think of the new Moto X (2014)?
