Apple adds “Sharing Selfies” section to the App Store

selllllfffiiiieeeOh gosh. I’m pretty sure that absolutely zero people asked for this. But it’s here. Apple has given it to us: An app feature section on the App Store entitled “Sharing Selfies.”

Personally, I’m about ready for the word “selfie” to die a slow, miserable death. I cringe when I hear it. (more…)

LeBron James feels sick about the Galaxy Note

Miami heat lebronAs anyone would often do, basketball all-star LeBron James of the Miami Heat tweeted to vent his frustration about his smartphone crashing and erasing all of his personal data. The only problem? James is paid to endorse the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone, which just happens to be the same handset he tweeted angrily about.

“My phone just erased everything it had in it and rebooted,” tweeted James. “One of the sickest feelings I’ve ever had in my life.” Unsurprisingly, considering his deal with Samsung, the tweet has since been deleted. But this is the Internet we’re talking about, meaning that retweets and screenshots are already out there by the dozen…  (more…)

iPhone return policy

Apple has quietly reduced its iPhone return policy from 30 days to 14 days in the United States, according to the company’s official retail website. The change aligns the iPhone with Apple’s standard 14-day return policy on all other products it sells, ranging from iPads and iPods to Macs and Apple TVs. The return policy in Canada has also been shorted to 15 days.

Thread Spotlight: What are some good Bluetooth headphones?

Thread Spotlight: What are some good Bluetooth headphones?

Design1iFans forum member kylebusch writes:

I got a pair of Beats Solo HD headphones for my birthday and they’re pretty good, but I just think these headphones are overpriced and overhyped just because they’re Dr. Dre’s. Plus I want wireless Bluetooth headphones more, so anyone have any recommendations for Bluetooth headphones around $150?

I would personally recommend checking out our dedicated audiophiles section within the iFans forums, a useful place to learn about recommended headphones to choose from. Our reviews editor Marcus Nguyen has also featured a fair share of headphones over the past few years.

SemiRestore7 for iOS 7 now available

utAa628

Apple is no longer signing anything below iOS 7.1 for current-generation devices, and you know what that means: You’re stuck on iOS 7.0.x if you want to keep your jailbreak. If you update to iOS 7.1, there’s no going back – at least not any time soon. But what if something happens? What if you want a fresh slate, but don’t want to lose your jailbreak? That’s why SemiRestore exists, and it’s now available for iOS 7. (more…)

OneNote for Mac coming later this month

onenote

The Verge is reporting that OneNote — a longtime Windows-only part of the Office suite focused on taking notes — will make its way to the Mac later this month. Additionally, the app is supposedly going to be released for the low, low price of free.

OneNote is one of the best parts of the Office suite on Windows, as anyone who uses it to take notes would support. The largest competitor it faces is EverNote, which has been available on the Mac since it was released.
