I really hope no one went to www.crashsafari.com I really do. To be honest, the link www.crashsafari.com should give itself away. It will crash your Safari web browser, and Chrome, but repeatedly extending the name of the URL causing memory issues with your device. iPhone's seem to be most affected by www.crashsafari.com due to heating issues that occur due to it, Android devices slow down quite a bit, as do iPhones obviously. Desktops aren't safe, but are generally a little better equipped to deal with the heat caused by www.crashsafari.com
I've got to be honest, I'm really tired of hearing about the Apple vs Samsung lawsuits, they're like a bad couple that just won't let it go... I guess any publicity is good publicity. With that said, Apple has won an injunction today stopping the sale of some old, popular phones:
Galaxy Note II
Galaxy S II
Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch
Galaxy S II Skyrocket
Galaxy S III
I guess that really does sum it up, some phones no longer for sale in the US...
If it looks oddly familiar, it should... If it doesn't, I'll assume you've been stranded on an island for the past two years and let you know that it's currently the year 2015 and there is this thing called an Apple Watch. It's based off of the smartwatches that have been around for a few years before it.
OK, so this is the Apple Watch Swiss Alp watch that looks oddly familiar, like the Apple Watch. Except... It's fully mechanical, and costs more... At 25,000 it's more expensive than Apple's own 18 karat gold Watch Editions... No notifications, no messages, just a watch that tells you the time, like a watch should...
Well, if you've been living in a box for the past few days, you should know that 2016 has rolled around. With the start of every new year becomes CES, a PR reps worse nightmare a large convention for new consumer electronics to see. Although not all the companies show off new toys during CES, I'll reserve this post for everyone in the upcoming year. What are you looking forward to in terms of electronics, gizmos, Google, Apple, Microsoft, accessories, etc.? What do you predict will come out? What do you want to come out?
808 Audio really hasn't had a chance to make a big impact on iFans. I do, however, have to admit that at first I felt that it was a brand for design only, I quickly learned that they weren't, partially due to the fact that they are both owned by the parent company of Klipsch. I quite enjoyed their Performer BT headphones.
This giveaway is for the 808 Audio HEX XS Bluetooth speaker. it's a portable speaker system that offers a square design with a hexagonal grill (most 808 Audio devices use some sort of hexagon). It looks stylish and fun, though I haven't heard it myself, so I can't speak about how it sounds in general. More information about the produce can be found here: http://www.808audio.com/speakers/hex-xs/
I wish everyone good luck on this giveaway!

HiFiMan has been making large marks in the audiophile business lately. With an entirely new line of over-ear headphones, the introduction of an on-ear model, and lots of in-ear models. Recently, HiFiMan released their new flagship IEM, one that would be different from the rest in terms of sound signature and fit, one that was customized. This would require them to team up with Unique Melody to design their first custom in-ear monitor (CIEM for short).
Before I begin, I’ll start by giving a quick introduction to what a CIEM is as that may be something that iFans isn’t too familiar with. A CIEM is simply an IEM that uses a custom molded casing that is fit to the listener’s ear. The casing is typically made out of acrylic, though it can also be silicone or some other material. These have become very popular with performers and musicians. Today, they have been gaining popularity with the general listening...
I just want to ask you guys a question. With the introduction of 3D touch, we don't need to press the home button twice to get to the background apps, now we just need to force touch (press harder) on the left side of the screen and we can easily switch between aps, we can also close the apps that are running in the background.
Do you still use the Assitive Touch?
Some people use them to prevent the wear and tear of the home button? What about you? Make your choice and share your opinion in the comment below
V-MODA has made large strides into the audio world. With the Crossfade Wireless, as the name would suggest, they lunge into the wireless world with their first Bluetooth headphones. They take the classic V-MODA design and infuse a wireless sound that is akin to the M-100 (though with a few tweaks).
By now, the V-MODA design has really become a classic in my mind. The familiar hexagonal shape that they use on nearly every one of their headphones (on, over, and in ear) gives the headphone a modern, rugged feel overall. Color options are nearly limitless, they come in four base colors: gunmetal (black and slate, pictured), rogue (black and red), phantom chrome (black and silver), white silver (white and silver). Additionally, you have options of face plates to make it truly yours. Materials go from smooth, glossy or metallic, metal plates to 3D printed (fiber, steel, or a selection of precious...
V-MODA has really made quite a large name for itself in the headphone business. Starting out with something more akin to what would seem like a fashion statement, V-MODA has really proved itself to be quality. Though I’ve enjoyed the majority of their on and over-ear headphones, I’ve only enjoyed their flagship buds. More specifically, the V-MODA Vibrato that was reviewed 3 years ago. The V-MODA Zn is designed as a successor to that throne and improves upon the Vibrato in various ways.
Matted versus glossy is really what it comes down to when it comes to the Zn. Following suit with the rest of the lineup, V-MODA decided to give the Zn a matted finish over the glossy one of the Vibrato. The silver accents still give it a nice contrast to the stealthy black finish that really fade into the background. The crisscrossing wire design gives it a unique look all around. They definitely are a good-looking...
