This must be the week for iOS 8 leaks: a new report out of 9to5Mac suggests that Apple’s in-development iOS 8 will offer greater integration of the company’s iCloud file storage system. The move comes in response to developer complaints that the current systems in place to integrate iCloud is too complicated.

The post spells it out thusly:

“Apple is said to be researching new iCloud storage tools to make the development of server-integrated App Store applications for iOS [...]

Video: Experiencing Real Life Mario Kart at SXSW 2014

At this year’s South by South West, Nintendo and Pennzoil teamed up to make the experience of Mario Kart somewhat of a reality. Attendees at the show, including Jeff, our own editor-in-chief, had the opportunity to race go-karts around a track Mario-Kart style. But how did they do it?

Well, drivers were put into electric go-karts that had Go Pro Cameras mounted above their heads. The karts also had RFID tags in the form of racing decals on the side, so that karts could be affected [...]

Amazon Prime Subscription Price Hiked by $20

About a month and a half after Amazon CFO Tom Szkutak speculated that the company’s Prime subscription price might increase, it’s happened. Today, Amazon has confirmed that its Amazon Prime service—which offers free two-day shipping on a majority of its products, not to mention video streaming options—has gone from $79 a year to $99 a year, a 25 percent increase for the same suite of services.

Rovio Announces Angry Birds Epic, A Turn-Based RPG

There was a time when I was over Angry Birds. Something about the combination of its seemingly unearned popularity and its ubiquity on the ugly clothes of equally ugly children that I would see while out and about really turned me off.

It’s Not You, Google Search Results Really Do Look Different

If you have noticed that Google’s search results look a little different right now–its not your eyes playing tricks on you. The modified appearance of the results is thanks to a very large “bucket” test currently underway, which has changed the look-and-feel of Google’s list of blue links. Most notably, the search result links are no longer underlined, the fonts are larger, and ads don’t have the usual yellow-colored background, but are rather just flagged with a small yellow label [...]

Yesterday we told you about Popcorn Time, a program that took all the “difficulty” out of torrenting a movie, essentially becoming the movie industries worst nightmare.  Good news for the movie industry came today though: the Popcorn Time installer has been pulled from the site that was hosting it.  Interestingly enough, the site hosting the installer was none other than Kim Dotcom’s Mega.

As for why it was taken down?  The installer was pulled for violating [...]
