The iPhone 6 Plus is a great phone, but there’s one really annoying thing about it that needs to be fixed: It desperately needs a split-screen keyboard in landscape mode. Landscape mode on the iPhone 6 Plus is one of the things that sets it apart from the iPhone 6 and earlier iPhones. But the problem comes when you are trying to thumb type in landscape mode.

Lenovo is all over the media recently, and not for a good reason. The revelation that it corrupted its computers with the vile Superfish adware has shocked many people in the computing world. It’s almost impossible to believe that a company could be so incredibly stupid and so unbelievably uncaring about the security of its customers.

Was so close to buying A lenovo a while back, glad I didn't.

It reminds me of when I once downloaded something from CNet download. I only wanted to try something out and spent the rest of the day trying to get a load of crap of my laptop.

I know I'm an idiot but I dread to think the number of people who get screwed by thinking they can trust a brand.

The Apple TV set top box has been around for quite a while now, but it has never been as much of a priority for Apple as the iPhone, iPad or even Macs. Apple long regarded it as a hobby, and that attitude might have finally caught up with Apple TV. A prominent Apple blog has come out in favor of Amazon’s Fire TV as a better option than the Apple TV.
