NSFW: Bendgate and the Internet echo chamber

NSFW: Bendgate and the Internet echo chamber

NSFW is a weekly op-ed column in which I talk about whatever's on my mind. Sometimes it'll have something to do with the technology we cover here on iMore; sometimes it'll be whatever pops into my head. Your questions, comments and observations are welcome.

A new rumor spread this week that the iPhone 6 Plus was prone to bending, mostly on the strength of a YouTube video that showed an iPhone 6 Plus user bending his. Almost instantly a new meme was born — Bendgate. Or, perhaps more topically relevant, Bendghazi. The incident demonstrates more about how we process information now than anything to do with Apple's manufacturing processes.

iPhone 6 Plus vs. HTC and Samsung: How bendable are they really?

#bendgate has gone viral, appearing in everything from social networks to late night talk shows, but how much force does it really take to bend an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and how does that compare to other popular phones? Apple has already shown off their facility, but now some independent tests have put them up against the iPhone 5, HTC One M8, LG G3, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. So, how did they all fare?

Great artists steal: The difference between Apple and Samsung

Great artists steal: The difference between Apple and Samsung

Samsung is widely regarded as having copied Apple's iPhone with their original Galaxy S products in order to gain broader, faster entry into the smartphone market. From device design to icon design to accessory design, Samsung inarguably copied Apple designs to a sometimes ludicrous degree. Yet many would argue Apple copies as well, in feature set if not in design. So why is it Samsung earns the ire of the designer community while Apple typically enjoys widespread praise? Is it just bias, or is there something fundamentally different about the way each companies copy? That's the topic Dave Wiskus explores in the second episode of his new series, Better Elevation.

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?
