apple 700bThe Apple gravy train continues to roll forward without any sign of slowing down, where the stock has experienced a 7-to-1 split earlier in the year, before the company embarked on a phenomenal run of new product launches and announcements that has seen its stock price climb up higher and higher. In fact, earlier in November, Apple was theoretically worth more than the whole Russian stock market alone, hitting a new “personal best” this time around – with a market capitalization of $700 billion.

mozilla search 640x379As some of you guys might have heard, Mozilla recently entered into a partnership with Yahoo in which it will see Yahoo become the new default search engine for the browser. However it seems that Mozilla doesn’t want to cut users off completely from other search engines that they might be more familiar with, such as Google or Bing.

This will arrive in the form as shown in the screenshot above where there will be one-click buttons for various types of search. As you can see, the default search engine will be Yahoo, but at the same time for those who want to try their luck using Google or Bing will just need to type in their query and click either the Google or Bing button.

windows 10 flac 640x381For audiophiles, listening to music in the MP3 format is pretty much unheard of as the MP3 format tends to compress audio, thus resulting in a drop in quality. Most of us might not be able to tell the difference in audio quality, but to some users who might have a keener sense of hearing or better quality audio equipment, the difference is apparently like night and day.

That being said, one of the preferred formats of audiophiles is the FLAC format and the good news is that if you’re a Windows user looking to make the upgrade to Windows 10 upon its release in 2015, it looks like the operating system will be coming with native support for the FLAC format.

skype android 640x398Android users might recall that last year, Skype rolled out an updated for Android tablets that brought the picture-in-picture feature to the app. What this means, for those unfamiliar, is that it allows users to continue their Skype conversation with their friend/family member while multitasking in another app, all the while maintaining the video connection.

For example to give you some perspective, on iOS devices, FaceTime’s video is paused whenever the app is closed or when another app is in use. That being said the update was issued nearly a year ago and if you were wondering when the feature would arrive for Android smartphones, wonder no more because it is finally here.

xbox oneWith our smartphones and tablets getting smaller and thinner with each passing generation, you would think that consoles would eventually get small and compact as well, right? However if anything they seem to have grown compared to back in the day, or at the very least are roughly around the same size, so what gives?

Well if you’re wondering why your Xbox One isn’t some sleek and sexy machine that you can slide in between your books on your bookshelf, Microsoft’s industrial designer Carl Ledbetter has an explanation for that. Speaking to the folks at MCV, Ledbetter revealed that cooling was the primary reason as to why the Xbox One is sized the way it is.

shots 640x552With selfies being the rage these days, we can’t say we’re surprised that developers are trying to cash in on the opportunity by creating apps with a selfie-focus. Shots is such an app, and it is also an app that has seen tremendous growth. As it stands, it has a user base of more than 3 million and about two-thirds are women under 24.

This is apparently the reason as to why Twitter could be thinking about picking up the app for themselves. This is according to a report from CNBC who claims that a source has told them that Twitter and Shots are currently in talks about a possible acquisition. Twitter’s CFO also seems to have accidentally tweeted a message about it which was meant to be a direct message, thus “confirming” that talks are indeed taking place.
