bmw-i3Earlier this year the internet was abuzz with rumors that Apple was working on a car of their own. Whether or not those rumors are true remains to be seen, but in the meantime should Apple be working on such a project, or if they are at least interested in the idea, it seems that BMW wouldn’t mind collaborating with them.

This was revealed by BMW’s production chief Oliver Zipse who stated that the company would be open to the idea of forming a partnership with Apple to build such a vehicle. Zipse was quoted as saying, “We live in a world of partnerships,” when asked if he could picture the company building cars for another company, such as Apple.

When the name Olloclip comes to mind, chances are you might be thinking of the clip-on lens designed for smartphones, where all the user has to do is slide the lens onto their phone and they’re good to go. However it looks like Olloclip wants to take things further as the company has recently announced the Studio System.

The Studio System is basically a set of smartphone accessories designed to give users the best possible photography tools for their phone. Instead of just offering a lens, the Studio System includes accessories such as a finger grip, a kickstand, cold-shoe adapters, and two 1/4-20 clips for either landscape or portrait modes.

sony-srs-x77-x88-x99-970x0If you’re looking for some wireless speakers to bring with you from home, to work, to school, or on holiday, Sony has you covered. The company has recently debuted a trio of new wireless speakers in the form of the SRS-X77, SRS-X88, and the SRS-X99. In terms of design, they don’t look very different from the SRS-X11, SRS-X33, and SRS-X55 models released last month.

However we suppose that’s not a bad thing considering how sleek and clean the design of these speakers are. So what are we looking at in terms of performance? Well starting with the biggest of the trio is the SRS-X99. This wireless speaker will be able to output 154 Watts thanks to two super tweeters, two front tweeters, two mid-range drivers, and a single subwoofer.

oneplus oneCome 27th of July, OnePlus is expected to make the OnePlus 2 official. We had all assumed that the company could be only launching a single device, but now a recent sighting at the Bluetooth SIG (via Droid-Life) has revealed that there could be more than one model in the works – the A2001, A2003, and the A2005.

Now the A2001 has been spotted on benchmarks before which gave away its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which the company has since confirmed, but as for the other two models, it is unclear as to what they might be. Some speculate that it might simply be the different storage sizes the phone will be offered in, while others believe that it could be the difference in the backplates used, although we’re not sure why this would warrant a different model number.

ipod refreshLast month Apple made it clear that the iPod would no longer be a priority to the company by removing a direct link to their iPod product page from their website. This doesn’t mean that the iPods have been discontinued, but rather Apple will choose to focus on less on it now than they did before.

However it looks like the iPod might not be completely ignored. It has been spotted that in the latest iTunes 12.2 update, new iPod images surfaced. The image above is shown when the user plugs their iPod in for the first time and as you can see, it looks like we can expect at the very least new iPod colors in the near future.

apple musicApple Music will cost users $9.99 a month if they were to listen to it themselves, but if they have family members they’d like to share it with, it will cost $14.99. Seems fair and seems to be in line with what other services are priced at as well. However it turns out that due to the difference in currency and regions, there are some countries that will pay a fraction of what US customers are paying.

For example it has been found that over in India, Apple Music will be priced at $2 (after conversion from its local currency), and $3 for the family plan. This is a fifth of what Apple Music subscribers will be paying in the US! Another example is Brazil, Indonesia, and Thailand where it is priced at $5 for single-user and $7 for the family plan.

trump hotelIn the recent years there seems to have been an increase in credit card breaches. We’ve seen large restaurant chains such as Chick-Fil-A experience a breach, and it was just last year that Target themselves were found to have a breach, and now it seems that the latest breach comes courtesy of Donald Trump’s Trump Hotels.

According to a report from Brian Krebs, it seems that the Trump Hotels might have experienced a breach in their security. While a breach has yet to be fully confirmed, suspicious activity has been spotted and acknowledged with a statement from Eric Trump who is the executive vice president of development and acquisitions.

facebook-unfollowWhen it comes to videos, YouTube is definitely king, so much so that many individuals and groups have gone on to make a living just by making YouTube videos and living off the ad revenue they get. However it looks like Facebook wants in on video creation and according to Re/code, ad revenue sharing will be arriving on the social network.

The idea is the same in which the revenue made from ads in the video will be split between Facebook and the video’s creators. However there is a major difference here and that is not everyone will be able to participate in it. It seems that only videos part of Facebook’s “Suggested Videos” feature will benefit from the ad revenue sharing, like NBA, Fox Sports, and Funny or Die, for example.
