sWe are commoner scum in Apple’s eyes, unfit and incapable of touching their beautiful precious prior to release. Many sites however, are fortunate enough to get an early hands-on review time. For them, we clap and bow admiration and jealousy. With that said, here are a grouping of early reviews from the internets best sites (we’ll update as as more are posted. iPhone ArsTechnica Buzzfeed Business Insider CNet Daily Mail DaringFireball Engadget Express Independent Irish Times Mobile Syrup Mossberg NYT Stuff Straits Times Sunday Morning Herald TechCrunch The Loop The Verge Time USA Today Wired WSJ AirPods Wired

Every few months it seems, Yahoo releases a re-branded or “refocused” version of one of their apps or services. Sometimes, they simply release all-new things. And to be fair, most of the time at least on the design front, the end product isn’t half bad. The stigma attached to Yahoo though, that they’re a dying company, is hard to get beyond. They’re simply less of a force than in the early .com days. But alas, today is another shot at their former glory with “Radar” (iOS only). On the surface, Radar is a new recommendation app that provides both intelligently…

Google I/O 2016 kicked off today. And while the company spilled the beans with “Android N” a couple months back, there is a lot of new stuff unveiled today that leaves plenty to be desired for. To kick things off, there are a number of new services and apps including Google Assistant, Allo and Duo. Google Assistant is like a smart chat “app” (with Google) that operates a lot like Google Now but with the aforementioned chatting feature so it doesn’t feel so machine-like. Basically, Google Assistant is a chat bot. The new Googley assistant can be found within Allo, a…

Longtime iOS hacker and developer Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) released an app in the last week that basically let you know if your phone had been secretly hacked. The diagnostic tool would show detailed info on installed apps and running processes as well as any jailbreak info it found (in case some security hole had been exploited, your phone jailbroken without your knowledge and your data in turn compramised). Apple approved the app once already. It was in the store. It was available for all. And now it’s gone. In a rejection note from the App Store team, Apple said (TNW):…

Jaybird is an already poplar and successful brand in the wireless headphone space, especially amongst the more active lifestyles. Logitech could spend their own R&D to barge their way in too, or, they could just snap up Jaybird. Seems like a worthy investment of $50 million, no? For now it appears Jaybird isn’t going to get disbanded and absorbed by the Logitech UE brand and will instead co-exist within Logitech as its own thing. That’s probably a good thing for now. Apple may be one of the first to get rid of the headphone jack but they certainly won’t…

The official Reddit app for Android and iOS is here! If you’re a power user you’re probably going to want to stick with what you’ve been using. That said, the official app isn’t terrible and it’s got a pretty nice layout to boot. The only downside for the AMOLED users out there – no true black/AMOLED mode. 🙁 – Download links below.

As a rather progressive (looking, at least) bank, Ally has been one of the biggest banks to resist adding Apple Pay support. That rough patch customers have had to endure however, is finally over with the announcement today by Ally that customers can now begin adding Ally-issued cards to Apple Pay. While we’re excited to have it added to the list, Apple Pay is but one service. What about the Android/Samsung Pay users out there? You’re also (soon to be) in luck with Ally also mentioning that support for the aforementioned two services is in the works and should be…

Remember Ello? If you’re not in the upper most level of techies and socially connected individuals, chances are you haven’t even heard of Ello before, much less had a chance to forget who they are. That said, for those of you who haven’t heard of it, Ello is a Facebook competitor of sorts. It originally launched back in 2014 with a very minimal but modern feeling website. Like most new social networks that come and go these days, it did a lot of stuff right in the sense of fixing a lot of small things we can’t stand about some…

One of Android’s greatest features (when it works well at least) is Google Now. The ability to quickly see a slew of relevant and interesting info stretching across calendar entries, weather, shipping notifications and more all in one easy to see timeline shouldn’t be under estimated. On the iOS side of things, Google does have an app for iOS. Though, of course, given how Apple sandboxes 3rd party apps, it’s not really the full, true Google Now/search. But that could be changing if a new report by 9to5Mac is correct. According to 9to5’s Mark Gurman, Apple has it’s own Google…
