ios8 apple payIt looks like the first beta of iOS 8.1 which was seeded not too long ago has yet to show a significant number of alterations (some say improvements) to regular users, and it has taken developer Hamza Sood to actually reveal a slew of hidden settings as well as strings from the new version that might just pique your interest. For instance, what you see on the right happens to be a screenshot of a hidden Settings pane for Apple Pay within.

destiny ps4The video game Destiny has certainly been quite the hit since it was released, don’t you think so? While video games do concentrate a whole lot in terms of visuals, visuals alone are unable to carry a game all the way to the end while ensuring that the gamer him or herself will remain engrossed.

I am quite sure that based on the title of this story alone, you would know for sure that it is not going to be the Nokia 3310 that will bend, as this is one hardy handset that has its fair share of memes dedicated to the overall toughness of the device. In fact, it is also widely recognized to be one of the sturdiest phones that ever rolled off a phone production line, so it is nice to see something this classic make a case for itself. I would like to add, too, that the Motorola Microtac was definitely unbendable no matter how much pressure you applied to it with your hands, regardless of the angle. Heck, I suppose one of the “features” of that handset would it being a self defense weapon that could knock the lights out of someone if used correctly.

nexus6 foldersThere has been a fair amount of buzz surrounding the upcoming Google Nexus X for quite some time now (which is also known as the Nexus 6 just in case you were wondering), so much so that plenty of ground concerning the device has already been covered. For instance, it is widely speculated that the final iteration of the Nexus X will arrive with a 5.9” display at QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels resolution, in addition to a Snapdragon 805 processor, a 13-megapixel camera at the back with a 2-megapixel shooter in front, alongside the next version of the Android operating system. In a nutshell, the Nexus X seems set to be a natural evolution of the Moto X from Motorola. However, it seems that there is more to it – the rear camera will apparently arrive with optical image stabilization (OIS) capability, while its battery will sport a 3,200mAh capacity.
