Will the new FBI Director make your iPhone Hackable?
In light of the recent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Apple enthusiasts around the world are very concerned that the next FBI Director will be seeking a "backdoor key" for getting into hundreds of millions of iPhones. Before James Comey was in the news recently over his firing by President Donald Trump, he was most well-recognized for testifying on behalf of the FBI in trying to get Apple to write a back door code to allow them to get into people's iPhones. Specifically they FBI wanted to get into the iPhone of the terrorist couple who shot up San Bernardino last year, but undoubtedly the tool would open "hundreds of millions of locks" as it was said by Apple CEO Tim Cook in an interview found below.

Apple to release 3 iPhone 8 models all at once in 2017
Coming in later this year, Apple will release 3 different models of their upcoming iPhone 8. There's going to be a lot of changes to the outward appearance of the phone. Firstly, notice in the picture above that there is no home button on the surface of the iPhone 8. That's because the iPhone 8 is going to be a full glass surface for it's body with finger print recognition technology embedded throughout. That's going to make cracked screen repairs a lot fast presumably when they break. The glass screen will go edge to edge and will have a new and specially developed OLED screen made by the same company that manufactures screens for Samsung. Samsung Note series last year was touted to have the highest quality screen ...
OLED iPhone 8 with a curved display and touch-sensitive tech
It's almost the end of a really tough year 2016. Wouldn't it be funny if you got to New Years Eve and instead of starting 2017 we go into 2016 S? That's a little bit what it felt like when users got their hands on the new iPhone 7. We know that Apple was super busy working on all new technologies including dual-cameras, a new touch button & fingerprint scanner. The new iPhone 7 however left many users wanting and made many techies feel depraved of new technologies that are already appearing in Samsung and Google phones. So what can we expect from the next iPhone?
Looking at the direction Apple has taken with their most recent launches, we'll most likely see several iPhone models debut all at once. I think ...
The new iPhone 7 is here – what can you expect to get if you take the plunge? The 7 includes an improved camera, increased water resistance and changes to the way you listen to music and media on your phone.
The newest version of the iPhone has a striking resemblance to the 6 but there are some upgrades waiting for new users. The iPhone 7 is designed to have increased water resistance, which may not seem like a big deal at the point of purchase, but which anyone caught in a rainstorm will appreciate.
The home button is different and has been incorporated into a touch panel, which may take some getting used to for existing iPhone users used to a separate and distinct button to push. The screen and touch technology are the same as the iPhone 6; ...

The biggest change is going to be the revamping of Siri so far as we can tell for the new macOS Sierra. Sierra will now function without interrupting your work (unlike the iPhone which pauses whatever you're doing when you try to take advantage of Siri). You'll also be able to use Siri to search your indexed files like images, videos, and more without actually having to go to the web. You'll also be able to schedule appointments using Siri and there are many more changes due after the release of this new operating system.
Will iMessage finally be coming to Android?
The short answer is no. Based on an article found online at macrumors, an Apple senior executive gave two answers. 1, Apple has to consider its own user base of 1 billion active users to provide a large ...

Replacing a Macbook Pro 13" Display
Check out this video of a guy covering the bases on a Macbook LCD Display. He starts by using a heat gun to warm up the adhesive that holds the Apple plexiglass in place over the frame while being careful not to apply too much direct heat at the LCD. LCD's are pretty durable but you can still destroy them with too much heat if you're not careful. For that reason, it's good to take these kind of repairs to a professional. Experience is the best ingredient when it comes to work with heat and electronics. That said, the guy from this YouTube video uses a suction cup in order to get the glass off the top of the screen. Suction cups are great to this end but it can be tricky to get ...
