Black Friday pushes Jeff Bezos’ net worth to $100 billion

 Being the richest man in the world wasn’t enough. After Amazon shares climbed on Black Friday, founder and CEO Jeff Bezos saw his net worth rise to $100.3 billion, according to Bloomberg estimates. Amazon’s stock has soared this year and Bezos has benefited to the tune of $32.6 billion. Yes, that’s the amount he has earned in 2017 alone.
Tests give iPhone X display top honors, but camera is merely competitive

Tests give iPhone X display top honors, but camera is merely competitive

Lab tests on the recently released iPhone X put Apple’s new flagship in the highest tiers of quality when it comes to the display and camera, but it’s only in the former category that it truly leaves the competition behind. Of course, what’s the point of having great images if your screen can’t show them properly? Apple doesn’t tend to make their own displays; but while LG, Sharp and, in the iPhone X’s case, Samsung rightfully deserve credit for making them, Apple doesn’t just snatch them off the shelf. A ton of money and time is spent customizing and tweaking them, and phones are individually calibrated before they ship to account for variation in the manufacturing process.
Apple’s bid to become a $1 trillion company starts this week

Apple’s bid to become a $1 trillion company starts this week

While people spend more than $1,000 for the right to eventually get an iPhone X (as well as sell that right to eventually get an iPhone X for more than $1,500), we’re seeing Apple is doing a pretty good job of setting the stage as to whether it can make its case to Wall Street that it can be a $1 trillion company. We’ve noted before that quarterly financial reports from companies are, generally, the moments that consistently swing stock prices for companies. And while Apple is hoarding a ton of cash, its future depends on the success of the iPhone — and, in particular, the iPhone X. While it is rolling out an updated version of the iPhone 7 in the form of the iPhone 8, the iPhone X represents Apple’s interpretation of the true next generation of that slate of glass in your pocket that controls your connection to the rest of the internet.
Google will pay you $1,000 to hack some of Android’s most popular apps

Google will pay you $1,000 to hack some of Android’s most popular apps

Details are light at the moment, but a bit of news out of Google’s Playtime developer event this morning: the company is launching a Google Play bug bounty program that’ll encourage researchers to poke around and look for vulnerabilities in some of Android’s most popular third-party apps.
Movies Anywhere brings your movies from Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes together into one app

Movies Anywhere brings your movies from Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes together into one app

Being able to buy a digital copy of a movie in a second through something like Google Play or iTunes or Amazon is great. Keeping track of where you bought each movie, though, is pretty busted. When you’re buying based on where it’s cheapest or which device you’re currently watching on, it’s easy to end up with a bunch of movies sitting behind a bunch of different store’s gates. It shouldn’t work like this… and it seems like the big names are finally coming to agree.
It’s time to give Firefox another chance

It’s time to give Firefox another chance

If you’re like me, you switched your default browser over to Chrome years ago and never looked back. Chances are, before you made the switch, you used Firefox or — God forbid — Internet Explorer. What made Chrome stand out back then was its speed and simplicity, especially at a time when Firefox felt like it was getting slower and heavier with every update. But times have changed. It’s now time to give Firefox another chance.
This is the iPhone X

This is the iPhone X

Ten years ago, the world got much bigger and much smaller, all in one fell swoop. Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone, the first internet-connected smartphone that put user experience above all, finally executing on the idea of a full touchscreen handset. This ushered in the rise of constant social networking, an application economy and complete dependence on our smartphones for just about everything. Today, Apple has introduced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. But in true Apple fashion, Tim Cook promised us “one more thing.” Today, 10 years later, Apple is introducing the iPhone X. And, by the way, it’s pronounced “Ten.” So what does a decade of iPhone innovation look like?
A preview of the first wave of AR apps coming to iPhones

A preview of the first wave of AR apps coming to iPhones

Over the past few weeks I’ve been steeping myself in the developer and investor community that is quickly sprouting up around ARKit. There are a variety of reasons that people are excited about the possibilities but it’s safe to say that the number one positive that’s shared by everyone is the sheer scale of possible customers that will be able to experience augmented reality on day one of iOS 11. Hundreds of millions of potential users before the year is out is a potent pitch.
Android Oreo vs iOS 11: What’s different and what’s the same?

Android Oreo vs iOS 11: What’s different and what’s the same?

Google just announced Android Oreo and it packs a handful of new features. Some are at the system level and speed up the system and extend the battery life, while others are features that will change the way users interact with their phone. A lot of these features should be familiar to iPhone and iPad owners. Normally Apple is the one accused of copying Android, but for Android Oreo, Google lifted a handful of features straight from iOS, while a couple of new functions are hitting Android before iOS.
