BGR - do, 10/23/2014 - 18:17

It's easy to get excited about Apple products. They get faster, thinner, lighter, smaller, better, more beautiful and more functional. But every so often Apple introduces a pivotal product, one that might be from a brand new product category, or one from an existing product that is just so much better it can't help but impress.

The iPad Air 2 is that product right now. It is better than the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, and I would go as far as to say it's the best thing Apple has ever made.

Visitors to those businesses will also be able to leave comments about them.

SO COOL: This hidden iOS 8 trick will add a great dimming effect to your iPhone's screen

BGR - do, 10/23/2014 - 16:55

Like every other smartphone on the planet, the auto-brightness feature on Apple's iPhone models including the iPhone 6 never works quite the way people want it too. The bright settings are too bright and the dim settings are too dim, so despite the obvious benefits to battery life, many users disable auto-brightness in their iPhone's display settings. This means that any time a user wants to adjust the screen brightness on his or her phone, a trip into the Settings app or a swipe up to open Control Center is needed.

But there's a cool hidden trick that will make it fast and easy to instantly dim your screen anytime you want.

Keanu Reeves has definitely seen a ghost before

The verge - do, 10/23/2014 - 16:14

Autonomous meme-generation beacon Keanu Reeves was on Jimmy Kimmel last night, promoting his latest movie, John Wick. In the middle of the standard interview questions — what was Keanu's favorite movie to work on? (The Matrix) — Kimmel threw out the question I hope we'd all ask: Has Keanu Reeves ever seen a ghost?

The answer is yes, Keanu Reeves has seen a ghost. Maybe. When he was young, he saw what was either some kind of floating jacket, or a ghost, and who is to say which it really was? No one, except a second witness to the event whose terrified face confirmed that, yes, it was a ghost.

But Keanu's preface to the story is what ties it all together. After being asked if he'd been visited by the great beyond, he told Kimmel, "It was...

The best and most extensive iPhone 6 Plus camera review you’ll ever see

BGR - do, 10/23/2014 - 16:05

We have seen a number of photography experts and professional photographers review the camera on Apple's new iPhone 6 Plus phablet. Apple's iPhones are widely known for being among the best in the business when it comes to smartphone camera quality, and the optics on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the best Apple has ever used. Since only the 6 Plus includes optical image stabilization (OIS), this is the handset photographers typically focus on when reviewing Apple's latest handsets.

Reviews up to this point have been great. We have seen a number of respected photography experts review the iPhone 6 Plus camera and sing it praise, and we've even seen some photo samples that are so incredible it's hard to believe they were captured by a smartphone.

But now, we finally have the iPhone 6 Plus camera review we have been waiting for.

The Big Future: Can we build a better brain?

The verge - do, 10/23/2014 - 16:00

How will the future change the human brain? This week's Big Future takes a look at a new wave of neurological techniques that directly alter the brain's electrical patterns, correcting seizures and movement disorders. Some doctors are even experimenting with using it to treat depression. Could the same technology be used to correct more fundamental mental properties like attention span? We're still early in the research, but there are already plenty of projects aiming to give human beings greater control over the inner workings of the brain.
