NCAA women’s basketball switched from halves to quarters two years ago, but Siri didn’t get the notice. Ask Apple’s digital assistant for a women’s tournament score, and she’ll excitedly inform you that the game was a thriller—going to double overtime.
Apple, a company that makes pretty good phones and computers, is diving into the world of original content for some reason. The company just released the first teaser trailer for its new show, “Planet of the Apps,” and the experience of watching it is similar to what I’d imagine being slowly lowered into a vat of acid…
Late this afternoon, Nilay Patel, the editor-in-chief of The Verge, published a post detailing the circumstances around the departure of Chris Ziegler, a founding member of the site. As it turns out, according to Patel, Ziegler had been pulling double duty as an employee of both The Verge and Apple.
The iPhone 7 has arrived, and—apparently—it’s an especially temperamental model. Many who have already acquired Apple’s latest toy say that the phone emits a peculiar hissing noise when it is engaged in too much activity.
Hordes of people will soon have a brand new iPhone 7 in their hands, and you know what that means: a lot of people will immediately screw it up. But while there will always be ways to completely destroy a new iPhone, Apple has designed the new device to withstand at least some physical stress.
On Wednesday, Mic published an extensive report on leaked internal emails from Apple employees that discussed the “sexist, toxic work environment” at the company. The anchor of the story, and the incident that apparently sparked an internal email thread among 12 employees, was an account by “Danielle” (a pseudonym),…
Did you update your phone to iOS 10 recently? I sure hope not—it’s a goddamn nightmare. But for those of you that didn’t heed my warning, should you decide to search the default (default!) GIF library for the word “butt,” you’ll find a sultry My Little Pony doing what no My Little Pony should ever do.
Apple finally released the long-awaited update to iOS this week, and it’s filled with so many exciting new features that you may have a hard time making sense of everything new you can do with your compatible iPhones and iPads. After spending a day exploring all the new bells and whistles, I think I’ve found my…
I have heard that there is a lot of hype around the seventh-ish version of Apple’s telephone. I’m sorry to be so frank, but I don’t understand why every technology website (including Gizmodo) is covering it. Actually, telephones have existed for hundreds of years.
Barbra Streisand, the only living legend of stage and screen with a mall in her basement, pronounces the second “S” in her last name with a soft “S.” Say it wrong—like Apple’s A.I. personal assistant Siri does—and she will correct you, even if it means directly calling head of Apple Tim Cook to do it.
It was Mariah Carey, the Lady-Protector of High Shade from the land of the Eyerolling Careys, who once sang about the noble butterfly. The song, somewhat deceptively, is not about an actual butterfly. Rather, it is a metaphor for something resembling love. The wise chanteuse sings:
We all like to make fun of Goop, but we’re the ones talking about it while Gwyneth Paltrow is wiping her ass with a $275 roll of toilet paper. Yes, please, mentor me, milady.
The Reserve Apartments complex is located in an area of San Jose that is five miles from Apple headquarters, 14 miles from Google, and 20 miles from Facebook. The cost of the 216 units at Reserve is protected by rent control laws, but by this time next year everyone living there will still be gone.
Following criticism of Siri’s inadequate responses to the phrase “I was raped,” Apple has made its voice assistant better equipped to react to questions about sexual assault.
The personal computer revolutionized the American home in the 1980s and 90s. And by the mid-90s mainstream America was getting online. But with Donald Trump now the presumptive nominee of the Republican party, there’s an interesting question that must be asked: Has Trump ever used a computer?
GOP candidate and angry sweet potato Donald Trump claims he’ll be able to change Apple’s entire manufacturing system if he is elected president. I’ll give Trump this: He’s great at shouting impossible nonsense.
“Screw you Apple, where the goddamn hell is my middle finger emoji?” can soon be conveyed in far fewer characters, thanks to the middle finger emoji that’s coming to your iPhone. But why did it take so long? Here’s how those middle fingers—and all emoji—make their way to your screens.
At today’s big Apple event, the tech company unveiled plenty of new toys for its loyal consumers. Among them was a new iPad Pro - a 12.9” tablet with a beautiful screen and powerful processor.
Of the many new experiences you might have during a high-risk pregnancy, one of the least fun is a fetal monitoring test called a Non-Stress Test, or NST. It really should be called a High-Stress Test because of the anguish it puts parents through. Apple just made it a little bit better.
