iPhone 6 Fire

Phillip Lechter, a man from Phoenix, Arizona, says that his iPhone 6 caught fire while still in his pocket, burning a hole through his pants' front pocket leaving him with second-degree burns on his leg. As of today, Apple has not yet contacted him to explain how this could have happened. According to Lechter, "It's been a little over a week now, so I've had the opportunity to get some good medicine on it. It wasn't like a puff of smoke, I could actually feel my leg burning and I couldn't figure out what it was," says Lechter. Continue reading for more detailed images and information.

50th Annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Earlier this week, the top awards for the 50th Wildlife Photographer of the Year were announced at a ceremony held in London's Natural History Museum. This wasn't any ordinary contest, as the winners received their awards from the Museum Patron, The Duchess of Cambridge, Sir David Attenborough, wildlife presenter Liz Bonnin and renowned wildlife photographer Frans Lanting. Michael Nichols' photograph came out on top amongst 42,000 entries from 96 countries to take home the grand title award. To capture the shot you're about to see, he followed lions resting with their cubs in Tanzania's Serengeti National Parkpride for nearly 6-months and then photographed them in infrared, which "transforms the light and turns the moment into something primal, biblical almost."

Google Officially Announces Android Wear Update With GPS And Music Features

moto 360 smartwatch review 15 640x426

Over the last week we reported that an Android Wear update was rolling out for LG G Watch and the Moto 360 in some regions and today Google has formally announced this update. It is actually a big update for Android Wear, which is a relatively new wearable device platform developed by the Mountain View company. This update adds GPS and music features to Android Wear devices.

With this update Android Wear gains support for smartwatches that have built-in GPS. This means that users can now track things like their route, distance and speed when they’re riding their bike or out and about for a run.

Support for listening to music through Bluetooth headphones also comes through this update, so users have to carry one less device when they’re out for a run, without having to give up on the ability to blast some tunes while they’re at it. Music can be locally stored on the smartwatch and then be played back through Bluetooth headphones.

Smartwatches that have GPS can also take advantage of applications such as MyTracks and Golfshot, while the latest version of Google Play Music also becomes compatible with Android Wear following this update.

Google has also created eight new app collections in the Google Play store which will make it easier for users to browse and find applications that work the best for them and their wearable device.

Some OS X Yosemite Users Experiencing Bluetooth Connection Problems

os x yosemite

It has not been long since Apple released OS X Yosemite for all supported Mac machines and it looks like some of them have developed problems apparently related to Bluetooth after they were updated to the new software. Some users have contributed countless posts to a thread on Apple’s official support forums complaining about Bluetooth problems that surfaced after they updated their machines to OS X Yosemite.

Macs use Bluetooth for connecting to wireless input peripherals, among other things, and some users are reporting problems even when trying to connect to Apple’s own wireless input devices such as the Magic Trackpad, wireless keyboard and Magic Mouse.

One user writes that he has noticed a persistent 0.5 second of latency, lag when using his Magic Mouse and a Bluetooth Keyboard on battery power, which rectifies itself when his MacBook Pro is plugged in. But not everyone is experiencing the same thing.

Others write that the Bluetooth problems persist on their Macs regardless of whether they are plugged in or not. Some people tried to fix this problem by resetting the PRAM on their machine, but the fix was only temporary and the problems cropped up again.

So far Apple hasn’t said if it is looking into the matter or working on an update so we await an official response from the company’s end. For now there appears to be no permanent fix.

Christian Bale To Play Steve Jobs In Sorkin’s Movie

stevejobs movie

In case the Ashton Kutcher starring movie on Steve Jobs was not your cup of tea rest assured that there is another project in the works. Aaron Sorkin, of The West Wing, The Social Network and The Newsroom fame, has written a movie based on some of the most important moments in the professional life of deceased Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. There were rumors about the actor who will be tapped to play Jobs but now confirmation has come from Sorkin himself. Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs in the biopic.

One really does not need to expand upon Bale’s acting prowess as it pretty much speaks for itself. His portrayal of the Apple co-founder will certainly play a major part in pulling people to theaters when the movie is finally released.

Sorkin confirmed that Bale has been locked in for the role during an interview with Bloomberg. He also revealed that Bale didn’t even have to audition for the role so clearly the team behind this project is convinced of his ability to play Jobs as per their expectations, but obviously the final judge of that will be the public that goes to see the movie.

The screenplay by Aaron Sorkin is based on the official autobiography of Steve Jobs that was penned by Walter Isaacson. According to reports the movie will basically consist of three lengthy scenes that depict three of the most crucial keynote speeches that Jobs gave during his career.

It has not been confirmed as yet when filming will begin and when we can expect this biopic to hit the screens.
