Apple's new iPad Pro generation must wait - no announcement expected today

While it was definitely shocking to learn the final names of Apple’s three new iPhones, as well as all their storage configurations and previously unknown details about Apple Watch Series 4 sizes hours before the actual launch event, possibly the most surprising last-minute revelation is what’s not coming. At least not yet.According to code builder and code breaker Steve Troughton-Smith over on Twitter, there’s “very clearly” no iPad Pro refresh scheduled for an announcement later today. That’s because there was not a single mention of a new iOS tablet anywhere to be found in the latest batch of files carelessly...

Those looking to prevent law enforcement from opening...

LG’s featherweight Gram may stretch to a MacBook-beating 17 inches

The LG Gram is one of the thinnest, lightest Windows laptops you can buy — also see: Acer’s Swift 7 — but now, it may be going places the new MacBook Air and its featherlight Windows rivals haven’t. Namely, all the way to 17 inches. Today, LG offers 13.3-inch, 14-inch, and 15.6-inch variants of the Gram laptop, but an FCC filing may have just clued us in on LG’s laptop strategy this CES — a 17-inch version that’d offer a bigger screen than any of Apple’s MacBooks. (Apple discontinued its 17-inch MacBook Pro way back in 2012.) Roll that laptop...

Politicians and protestors are looking for ways to stop Amazon’s New York HQ2

When New York’s governor and New York City’s mayor appeared alongside an Amazon executive yesterday to announce Amazon’s HQ2 setting up shop in the city, the mood was celebratory. But some locals are pushing back and considering what would need to happen to scuttle the deal. Amazon’s decision to build a new facility in Long Island City, Queens, as well as in Northern Virginia, has been met with stiff resistance. Two local politicians, State Sen. Michael Gianaris and City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, have said an “unprecedented amounts of tax dollars” will be going to Amazon through tax incentive...

The Nokia 106 feature phone has a 1.8-inch screen that’s perfect for Snake

HMD Global has announced the Nokia 106, an affordable feature phone destined for the global market. The 106 has a 1.8-inch, 160x120 display that’s a perfect match for the built-in Snake game. (You’ll have to pay for others, though demos are included.) The phone can store up to 2000 contacts, and retain up to 500 SMS messages. Yes, these are the highlights advertised for a device like this. HMD says the battery lasts “from sunrise to sunset with one charge,” which is something I’d honestly expect from a feature phone. That all-day battery life — 15.7 hours, to be specific...

PewDiePie’s fans are fighting hard to ensure he remains the biggest YouTuber

Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has spent years as the biggest YouTuber on the video platform, so now that an Indian music channel called T-Series threatens to take the throne, the world is paying close attention to the man’s subscriber count. While T-Series’ YouTube dominance is likely just a matter of time, Kjellberg’s fans have gone into overdrive to make the overthrow take as long as possible. The fight has spilled out into the real world, thanks to a number of grassroots campaigns to raise awareness of Kjellberg’s channel. The most high-profile advertising campaign for Kjellberg’s channel happened late last month, when...

The iPhone X can be hacked to pull your recently deleted files

Two hackers have collected a bounty of $50,000 for finding an exploit in the iPhone X that lets you recover a previously deleted photo or file. During a mobile contest where hackers located bugs in iOS and Android, two hackers Richard Zhu and Amat Cama uncovered the vulnerability today and presented it in a demo. So far, Apple has been notified about the bug but it remains accessible at least until the next iOS update, as first reported by Forbes. While the attack requires some access to the target device, researchers believe it could be deployed through a malicious Wi-Fi...
