AT&T files motion to dismiss FTC's data throttling suit, invokes common carrier status

AT&T files motion to dismiss FTC's data throttling suit, invokes common carrier status

Late last year, the FTC filed a lawsuit against AT&T, stating that the carrier was throttling data for users on unlimited plans, a practice that has allegedly been going on since 2011. AT&T is now looking to file a motion to dismiss the lawsuit by invoking the Tier II "common carrier" clause, which exempts the carrier from FTC's jurisdiction and places it under the purview of the FCC.

CarPlay gets touched, knobbed, and after-marketed at CES 2015

CarPlay gets touched, knobbed, and after-marketed at CES 2015

CarPlay is Apple's way to bring your iPhone experience into any car you own, lease, rent, or borrow. As long as the manufacturer supports it — or you install it after-market — you never have to worry about learning a new "infotainment" system again, nor being stuck with one locked forever to your purchase day. Simply get in, connect, and your latest iPhone hardware and up-to-date iOS software take over the screen and give you the interface you already know so you can use all the apps you already love — all with the date and content you already have. While CarPlay will look and work similarly from vendor to vendor for just that reason, there are also a few differences. Georgia, Serenity Caldwell, and Anthony Casella took to CES 2015 to show you how!

Yes, your thermostat can now tell your washing machine to fluff your clothes...!

Apple's HomeKit has been announced and while a few vendors are doing some amazing Siri-powered things with it, not everyone has been as quick to embrace it. Some are playing coy, others are marching to the beat of their own standards and agendas, and yet others claim to waiting to see more from Apple. Yet HomeKit or not, home automation is while hot and everything and anything that can have a chip is getting a chip. That might mean there's not enough stuff that all works together yet, and too many apps needed to control it all, but that's change with time. Just take a look at what Anthony and Georgia were able to find at CES 2015 and it's not hard to imagine what's coming next.

8 years ago today, Steve Jobs introduced Apple's iPhone

8 years ago today Steve Jobs put sneaker to Macworld stage in what was arguably the greatest keynote in his and Apple's history of great keynotes. Following the industry-changing Mac and the iPod, Jobs claimed Apple was going to introduce 3 more revolutionary products — a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and revolutionary phone, and a breakthrough internet communicator. He asked if we got it. We did. We got the hell out of it. Not 3 products but 1. The iPhone.

Phil, Rene, Dan, and Mark talk mobile together at CES

Phil, Rene, Dan, and Mark talk mobile together at CES

It wouldn't be CES without a gathering of mobile editors talking about the show, and we got it live for all to see. Watch as Phil of Android Central, Rene of iMore, Dan of Windows Central, and Mark of Laptopmag and Tom's Guide get together for a few minutes and talk about everything that has been seen and done here in Las Vegas. The general theme this year seems to be interoperability and the increasingly vague "Internet of Things" but with all of that noise comes a strong signal for things to come. It's becoming way less about which single device is best, and way more about which combination of platform and experience gets you what you need.

Logitech G502 gaming mouse offers adjustable weight

My 14 year old came to me last week with a dead mouse in his hands. No, not a rodent. So I gave him my gaming mouse, which left me looking for a new one. I've found it, and it's from Logitech - it's called the G502 Proteus Core.

Gyro-skating, drone flying, bed jumping, and sharp shooting at CES 2015!

Showstoppers is a media event at CES 2015 where a concentration of vendors from the show get to show off the wares in what's hopefully a less crowded, congested setting. Sometimes it's jam-packed with the amazing. Other times it's a real snooze. This year fell decidedly in the middle, with some cool and interesting new things interspersed among the same-olds. So, Georgia, Anthony, Serenity and I tore through it and brought you back the very best.

Health & HealthKit highlights from CES 2015

Health & HealthKit highlights from CES 2015

HealthKit is the set of protocols developers and vendor can use to tie into Apple's Health app, which lets us get all of our health and fitness information all in one place. With HealthKit, we can also share information between apps — let one step tracker know what another step tracker has recorded — and also with our healthcare professionals, if we so choose. It's still early days and not every developer or vendor supports it yet, but everyone supports iOS in some way. At CES 2015, Georgia and Anthony took a look at some of the highlight from the health and fitness industry, and from HealthKit.

WikiPad's Gamevice for iPad mini is all kinds of fun

WikiPad's Gamevice for iPad mini is all kinds of fun

The folks at WikiPad have been promising support for Apple products for a little while now, and now that we've spent a few minutes with one here at CES it looks like we were all better off waiting until they got it right. The Gamevice takes your iPad mini and straps two halves of a controller on either side of the screen, giving you an incredible controller experience that may or may not give you violent flashbacks to the days of playing with a Sega GameGear. Despite the added girth on either side of your iPad mini the controller is plenty comfortable to hold and doesn't take up nearly as much space when collapsed in your bag.

If you're a fan of iPad gaming but dream of a world where on-screen joysticks are better, there's a good chance the Gamevice is worth looking at for your collection.
