Thereâ€™s a lobbying and PR firm that exists solely to oppose Google. Itâ€™s made up of companies that compete directly with Google.
Their latest effort involves the filing of an antitrust complaint with European authorities over Android.
Hereâ€™s why the complaint fails the tests of both truth and intelligence.
FairSearch is a coalition of companies that compete with Google who have banded together to lobby governments to [Read More...]
Ah, the iCar. We’ve been waiting for Apple to make a real one for years, ever since they transformed a Porsche into one way back in 1980. And we know Steve Jobs was game.
So the promise that Volkswagen is preparing an iBeetle might, at first, seem of interest to Apple fans and auto enthusiasts. But don’t get too excited, because the iBeetle is lame.
Google has just unveiled an absolutely mystifying new product apparently created by insane millionaires, for even crazier millionaires: the Pixel, a $ 1,300 Chromebook with a Retina-like display.Â Although it’s attractive and well specced, it might be the most inexplicable product announced this year.
For a Chromebook, the Pixel has some impressive specs: it boasts a 2,560 x 1700, 12.85-inch display with a 239ppi pixel resolution. Inside, is a dual-core Intel Core [Read More...]
It’s December, which means that the lack of real news combined with my absurd love for iPhone and camera-related gewgaws takes over, bring a rain of plastic crap down on the pages of Cult of Mac. Sometimes this intersects with a genuinely useful accessory, and today we bring you the 3-in-1 Lightning Camera Connector.
Apple somewhat inexplicably ditched the super-portable little dongles in its iPad camera connection kit for a pair of cables, the SD-to-Lightning adapter [Read More...]
Do! Not! Panic!
The Don’t Panic case is like a pair of comfy slippers for your iPad. As the name suggests, just using it is relaxing, the iPad-acessory equivalent of a valium or a well-mixed Old Fashioned at the end of a long day.
The floppy felt and leather sleeve is also a little like your embarrassing uncle. He has some horrible habits, and annoys you to death some times, but you can’t [Read More...]
There are some rather prodigious — nay, daring — affirmations made about the gratuitous ($ 0.00) iPad / iPod app Finger Cut by its developer, Poland’s Jan Mazurczak: “It’s the most stupid app on the App Store!” he asseverates, appending, “downloaded three million times!” Well it’s certainly cutting edge….
Finger Cut is a somewhat undemanding app conceptually. It amounts to a spinning, loudly buzzing, circular saw set against a dark background, which [Read More...]
Bored? Launch Terminal and get ready for some completely stupid tricks to keep yourself entertained. You’ll be listening to Horse Ebooks blab away, watching Star Wars in ASCII, playing retro games, toasting your CPU cores with a repetitive phrase, and even talking to a virtual psychotherapist. The hidden joys of the command line are upon us:
1: Watch Star Wars in ASCII
Yes, really, you can watch the original Star [Read More...]
Removing all photos from the Camera Roll on an iPhone can be notoriously slow, particularly for Mac users with large picture libraries. Deleting all images from an iOS device with Image Capture can literally take hours, and deleting more than one photo directly on an iPhone itself is time consuming and a very hands-on process as you have to tap each picture you want [Read More...]
We’ve shown you how to disable the internal display of a Mac laptop running OS X Lion or later with sleep or with the help of a command line trick, those are the recommended approaches but not everyone has gotten them to work on their Macs. An alternate and peculiar option left in our comments shows us how to turn off [Read More...]
I hate cables, especially when traveling, but it always seems like I’m walking around with a whole suitcase full of spare electric umbilicals when I go on a trip. The MacAlly Dualsync nicely consolidates two of the cables I need: an Apple Dock Connector and a microUSB cable, thanks to the ingenuity of a removable, Apple-compliant head. I’m also pretty fetched by the way the whole thing winds back down to [Read More...]
