The Universal Type-C Charger.
Because one cord should be enough.

(Google did GREAT things for smartphones with their "Open Handset Alliance. To see them moving forward to bring that same universal flexibility to laptops is really cool.)

You Can Now Test Apple Music

Anyone who owns an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC can now try Apple Music for free for the next three months. The free trial ends for everyone on September 30th, which means if you want to properly test Apple Music out without paying, you should sign up sooner rather than later.

http://www.apple.com/music/

People with iOS devices need to update to iOS 8.4 and then click the “Join Apple Music” option under “Account”. People using a Mac or a PC need to install the latest version of iTunes and do the same thing. Apple Music is currently available in over 100 countries.

Signing up to Apple Music means automatic renewals are turned on by default. If left unaltered, this means you’ll be billed for using the service from October 1st. To avoid this fate, go to “Account”, select “View Apple ID”, and then hit the “Manage” button under “Subscriptions”. Simply flick the “Automatic Renewal” button to Off, and you can enjoy the free trial with peace of mind. [H/T +MakeUseOf ]

Indiegogo Campaign Attempts to Bail Out Greece

Greece is in debt up to its eyeballs right now, having struggled to get its finances back on track after the global financial crisis. The country owes a lot of money to a lot of different organizations, and some of them are now demanding those loans get paid back.

Greece has failed to pay back €1.6bn it owed as a first installment to the IMF (International Monetary Fund), and things look to be going from bad to worse. However, you could help Greece pay its $300 billion of debts by donating a few dollars to an Indiegogo campaign.

This crowdfunding effort was set up by Briton Thom Feeney. He worked out that if all 503 million people living inside the EU (European Union) donated just €3 each, the first repayment could be made in full. If people outside the EU get involved then who knows what could be achieved.

Fastest Ways to Transfer Files Between PCs and Mobile Devices

The truth is, file transfers have never been faster than they are today. Yet, to many of us, transfer speeds still seem like they inch along and take forever to complete. It’s funny how inconvenient it can be finding a quick and easy way to move data between devices.

Fortunately, we have you covered. Never again will you have trouble with cross-device file transfers.

(One tool that wasn't mentioned is Techsmith's Fuse, which I use several times a week to quickly push images over wifi to my PC from my phone.)
Remember when files had to be split between multiple floppy disks to move them between computers? Or the inconvenience of burning data to rewritable CDs? Thank goodness we've moved on from those primitive methods. The truth is, file transfers have never been faster than they are today. Yet, to many of us, transfer speeds still…

Gmail Adds New Themes & Emoji

Google is adding new features to Gmail aimed at helping you “express yourself in email”. Gmail now has “emoji for just about every occasion,” because emoji is clearly the language of the future. And coming to a dictionary near you soon.

Hundreds of new themes have also been added, and you can now edit your image of choice to make it more unique to you. So, nothing groundbreaking, but some useful new stuff with which Gmail users can play around. [H/T +MakeUseOf]

Watch Siri Divide Zero by Zero

If you own an iOS device and have 30 seconds to spare, you may want to ask Siri, “What is zero divided by zero?” The only problem is you may not like the answer. Because, based on you asking this question, Siri concludes that you have no friends.

This strange answer based on the Cookie Monster isn’t the only zinger Siri has in her arsenal. Ask her to divide other numbers by zero and she’ll cycle through her full range of snarky responses. Thus proving you have nothing better to do. And no friends! [H/T CNET​]
