Apple Malware now on iOS

Apple has erroneously been touted as "not able to get viruses" for many years, but now Apple themselves are pointing out that Malware has hit their mobile devices - as well as they Macbook. Trojans have been delivered via Apps for quite a while and now malware, Trojans and more can be delivered to your device (and propagated), simply by plugging into an affected device. This spreads as you plug in to other devices. Keep your USB stick to yourself and your USB ports closed.

What's more, it's the first that can infect iOS applications like a traditional virus, and even auto-generates infected software. Some 467 apps have been infected and downloaded over 350,000 times, and could have affected "hundreds of thousands" of users. And here's where the regional issue comes into play: the malware is hosted on Maiyadi, a Chinese, third-party app store.

Rage Keyboard

If you are one of those guys (or gals) that sometimes rages when you're at your computer, this keyboard is probably the best thing you've ever seen. It's a full-on bunching bag gym that will require you to get up, move around and punch different bags as each bag is its own "key". It would take a lot of effort to write a review - or news, but it would be a little fun.

A majority of our entertainment comes from computers, but a majority of our frustration comes from them as well — whether it’s from a tedious day of writing reports, an inexplicably broken internet connection, or getting targeted and griefed in an online game. Gone are the days of throwing a sturdy Nintendo controller against a wall to relieve our frustrations with no repercussions, but design studio bless has designed a solution: a keyboard made out of punching bags.

Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Photo Storage for Prime

Everyone wants your data - namely your pictures. Amazon has now joined the fray with their new "unlimited photo storage" for their Amazon Prime users. This isn't the reason why you should rush out and grab a Prime membership, but if you're already a member, this is a nice touch that gives more value to your plan. Cloud Drive is pretty affordable at the lower tier, but when it comes to 1000GB of storage, Googe's own Drive is much, much more affordable.

Prime now includes free storage in Amazon Cloud Drive for your entire photo collection. Enjoy secure photo storage, automatic photo and video backup, and anywhere access with Cloud Drive.

Windows 10 Natively Supports MKV

If you don't know that "Native MKV" support is, then you obviously haven't tried pirating videos off the internet. While the MKV fiel format is much more than just for pirating, it has always required certain players in order to play back this format. Thankfully, Windows 10 will now officially support this high-compression, high-quality video format. I'm sure that every Torrent user is a little happier with Windows 10 now.

If you want to test out support for MKV on your install, you can download a sample video from Jellyfish. After the file downloads, when you open it up, Windows will ask you what app you want to use to open this type of file with; select Windows Media Player. After you select WMP, a warning will pop up saying that the player does not support this file but if you click 'Yes', the file will then play without issues.

LG G Watch R Review

The Moto 360 was the first Smartwatch that caught the eye of many a geek and while that watch is pretty slick, the one aesthetic flaw of the flat bottom on the round screen may be a bit hard to get used to. If you want something even more awesome (looking), you should check out hte round-screen on the LG G Watch R. This is a round update to their original G Watch and according to the guys that strapped this on, the updates are awesome - the price is a bit steep though.

So far, in terms of Android Wear devices, we've seen efforts from LG, Motorola, Samsung and today, well, LG... again! Barely four months after launching the LG G Watch, the Korean firm is back with another one: the G Watch R. Whereas the G Watch was a square, unpolished and, perhaps, unfinished affair, the G Watch R we're looking at today is a different beast altogether. It has a much more traditional design with a round display, leather strap and more.

Nexus 9 Review

It wasn't that long ago that a tablet was simply another device to plug in and charge up in order to do the same things you could do on your phone and your laptop - but it was bulkier and more awkward. Times have changed and tablets have really come into their own. In my opinion, the ASUS Transformer paved the way for the Microsoft Surface and that is where tablets actually became useful. The new Nexus 9 doesn't have a keyboard, but it is more powerful that a 2012 Macbook Pro and the review of this new beast is at the link below.

Now small and cheap tablets are ubiquitous and Google doesn’t need to show other manufacturers how it’s done anymore. So for its new Nexus 9, Google took a different approach: it went straight for the iPad. The Nexus 9 starts at $399, has a display with the same resolution and aspect ratio as Apple’s tablets, and is made of more premium materials (read: metal). It also has a new, powerful Nvidia processor (the first 64-bit chip in an Android device), lots of RAM, and the latest and greatest Android software from Google.

All Your Drones Are Belong to China

China is all about keeping things quiet that they want quiet and in order to help do that, they've just activated a program that uses highly accurate lasers to shoot down low-flying drones. Amazon will not be delivering packages to China and unfortunately, the lasers are not attached to sharks. Either way, something like this has already been done in certain U.S. states where people drink beer and bet they can shoot drones down with their 12 ga. shotgun.

The laser system is expected to “play a key role in ensuring security during major events in urban areas” and address concerns on unlicensed mapping activities, according to Xinhua. It is effective up to a maximum altitude of 500 metres and against aircraft flying at up to 50 metres per second (112mph), Xinhua said.

Acer Joins the 4K Laptop Fray

If you've been eyeing the 4K laptops that have been available from MSI, ASUS and others, you may be really excited to learn that Acer has now joined the fray. Why should you be excited?
