This couple had a tech-themed wedding that was super Instagram-worthy

TwitterFacebook

Jessica Naziri is the founder of TechSesh.co. Being a lover of technology, Naziri incorporated tech gadgets in her wedding. 

Her headpiece was 3D-printed, the bouquets were made out of USB cables, and there was even a drone flying around. 

Guests were given portable charging packs as favors to remember the wedding. Now that’s how you do a tech-themed wedding right. Read more…

The iPhone 8 might be smart enough to know when to shut up

TwitterFacebook

The iPhone 8 is expected to have a front-facing biometric sensor for scanning your face. Its most obvious use seems likely to be scanning your face to verify your identity to unlock the phone, but it might also help suppress one of the most grating parts of the iPhone experience.

This week’s bountiful HomePod firmware leak was loaded with info (including what the iPhone 8 will likely look like). Developers are still mining the code for details, and one of them suggests a new 3D sensor on the front could identify when you’re using the phone and mute those annoying notification sounds. 

That means you won’t have to take the pesky extra step of turning off your phone to silent every time you use it — unless you’re one of those people who just wants to watch the world burn as your text conversation ding ding dings for everyone else to hear, even though you’re watching the messages come in to you in real time.    Read more…

40+ Times Cats Didn’t Want To Be In Your Stupid Selfies And The Result Was Hilarious

Cats don’t own smartphones, mainly because touch screens aren’t easy to use when you have paws. But if they did they’d probably use them to crank call dogs, ignore calls from their humans, and Google the best strategies for world domination. What they wouldn’t use them for is taking selfies, because as you can see from this funny list of photo (un)friendly felines compiled by Bored Panda, cats hate selfies.

Here’s the first 6 minutes of the ‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series’ premiere

TwitterFacebook

James Corden’s mega-popular segment now has an Apple flavor.

You can catch the first six minutes of the premiere episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, which released on Tuesday night, as part of a 16-episode season for Apple Music.

Will Smith is the first guest, and they open with a rendition of “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.” Then they get into a very over-the-top version of “Boom! Shake The Room,” while also discussing if Smith would ever play Barack Obama. 

There’s also a teaser of other hosts and guests, such Gwyneth Paltrow (an easy choice, given she’s in another of Apple’s shows, Planet of the Apps), Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones, and Billy Eichner singing it out with Metallica, of all people. Read more…

Apple’s rumored new iPhone color probably isn’t copper. It’s something better.

TwitterFacebook

The Apple iPhone rumor mill always adds a hefty amount of confusion just before any new iPhone launch, and the latest, focused on what may be a new color option, is no different.  

On Monday, a somewhat low-resolution photo of a supposed iPhone 8 from a post on China’s MyDrivers, via Weibo, showed a casing described by some as copper. 

However, because the photos aren’t high resolution, and we know that lighting can affect the way an object’s true color is represented in a poor photograph, we can’t be certain that this isn’t just a color-distorted casing.  Read more…

A perfect hack if Apple’s earphones don’t fit your ears

TwitterFacebook

Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission.

Last year, Apple put out an iPhone without a headphone jack — the first volley in its ongoing War on Apertures  — and, suffice to say, it was not the brand’s most popular decision. 

But, life goes on, and whether you own AirPods (the newer, wireless earphones) or remain a proud, EarPod-wearing member of the resistance, they generally sound and look pretty good.  

There are, however, a couple issues with Apple’s in-ear headphones: they aren’t always comfortable and they have a tendency to fall out. While we cannot convince the folks in Cupertino to chill out about headphone jacks, we do have an easy fix for those fit issues: Earhoox 2.0 for Apple EarPods & AirPodsRead more…

This Apple leak is like nothing we’ve ever seen before

TwitterFacebook

Apple screwed up. Like, badly. 

The company known around the world for secrecy is having a bad week, and, unfortunately for the Apple-can-do-no-wrong crowd, it has no one to blame but itself. That’s because the largest leak to come out the Cupertino-based tech giant in some time was not the result of self-proclaimed supply chain insiders taking on Reddit, but rather a good old-fashioned employee screw up. 

We speak, of course, of the pre-release HomePod firmware uploaded to a public server last week. According to The Guardian, this was only supposed to be disseminated internally, but, ya know, oopsRead more…

Sad poop, bagel emoji could bless our phones in 2018

TwitterFacebook

Soon, we might be able to Venmo our friends for a bagel without using “donut emoji minus chocolate emoji” as the caption. Just me? OK.

Per Emojipedia, 67 new emoji have been announced as “draft candidates” for Unicode’s 2018 emoji rollout. This means that they could be coming to your phones in 2018 — but no promises.

Image: Emojipedia

Other draft pick highlights include a cupcake (cute!), a roll of toilet paper (great for roommates!), a hippo (Fiona!), and a frowning poop emoji (how we all feel every day!). For women at the mercy of sexist office air conditioning, there’s also a cold, blue face. Read more…
