GoPro on Monday announced a new $400 action camera, the Hero4 Session, a cube-shaped device said to be half as big and 40 percent lighter than other Hero4 models, while still offering many of the same features including wireless connectivity to Apple's iPhone. The Session shoots 1080p60, 720p100, or 1440p30 video, and can also capture 8-megapixel photos in single, burst, or timelapse modes. As with the Hero4 Black and Silver, it offers options like Auto Low Light...
Korean investors have begun to back off their formerly hopeful predictions that Samsung's updated flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone could mitigate the conglomerate's recent financial freefall, thanks to seemingly lackluster sales of the new handsets. "After the first-quarter results the consensus for second-quarter earnings was somewhere in the high 7 trillion won ($6.2 billion), but now I think so long as the first digit doesn't start with a six it won't be a shock," HDC...
Just in its first few days, the launch of Apple Music has demonstrated that Apple can competently execute outside of its core hardware business. That has implications for its future ambitions in TV and automotive, as well as highlighting the vast gulf between it, Google and Microsoft. Apple Music is not perfect in every way. Some users have complained that it does too much, such as in how it rearranges (or in some cases duplicates) their music library files. Others...
The Mad Catz Micro C.T.R.L.i is the most affordable iPhone- and iPad-compatible wireless game controller on the market, and that alone will make it the ideal choice for many mobile gamers, even though its design has a few glaring issues. The Bluetooth-enabled Mad Catz controller is compatible with any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. Mad Catz provided AppleInsider with a blue Micro C.T.R.L.i controller for the purposes of this review, though it's also...
The week's news was dominated by the launch of Apple Music and Beats 1 on Tuesday, but other developments percolated under the surface -- including Apple losing its last appeal of a long-fought e-book antitrust case. Apple Music, Beats 1 go live with iOS and iTunes updates Through the release of iOS 8.4 and iTunes 12.2, Apple officially debuted Apple Music -- its on-demand streaming service -- and Beats 1, a 24-hour Internet radio station hosted by live DJs, including...
Eminem dropped an epic music video-cum-short film for his latest single "Phenomenal" on Friday as an Apple Music exclusive fraught with product placement courtesy of Apple Watch and iPhone. Coming in at over seven minutes, chock-full of martial arts derring-do, special effects and cameos from Dr. Dre, actor Randall Park and a chow mein-eating John Malkovich, Eminem's "Phenomenal" is more action-packed movie than music video. We even see Em beat down two henchmen with a...
Rap mogul Dr. Dre on Friday announced a Fourth of July debut of a bi-weekly radio show called "The Pharmacy," which will launch on Saturday as an Apple Music exclusive focusing on West Coast jams. According to an Associated Press report, Dre's new hour-long show will start streaming tomorrow at 6 p.m. Eastern. It is not currently clear whether The Pharmacy will be a Beats 1 radio segment or a standalone station available through Apple Music, though recent developments...
On its website Apple describes Apple Music and iTunes Match as "independent but complementary," but in fact the services are closely connected through a third feature: iCloud Music Library. Effectively, iCloud Music Library -- turned on via settings in iTunes 12.2 or iOS 8.4 -- incorporates iTunes Match, which makes a person's local iTunes library (including playlists) available for remote streaming or download whether the songs were bought from the iTunes Store,...
Apple is rumored to offer its next-generation iPhone in a new rose gold color option, which has led to forgeries in the Far East attempting to imagine what the color might look like on a so-called "iPhone 6s." In a post to Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo, discovered on Friday by AppleInsider, a user shared the above pictures of an iPhone rear shell that has been painted a rose gold hue. While the part has been presented as a possible "iPhone 6s" component, the...
Late-week reports from the Asian supply chain continue to suggest that Apple's next-generation iPhone has begun to roll off of assembly lines, with some indications that the forthcoming device will sport a nearly identical outward appearance with slightly tweaked internals. Primary Apple contract manufacturers Foxconn and Pegatron have begun receiving shipments of components for the so-called "iPhone 6s" from suppliers and sub-assemblers, according to Digitimes. The...
