jay-z-tidalTidal was a relatively unknown music streaming service even before hip hop mogul Jay-Z got his hands on it, but it looks like even after he did, the app enjoyed a brief bout of popularity and publicity before it started to fizzle and with it dropping out of the top 700 app ranking on the iTunes App Store.

So is Tidal doomed? Jay-Z does not seem to think so and has recently gone on a rant on Twitter in which he ardently defended the streaming service. For starters he believes that the service just needs some time to grow, and that even companies such as Spotify took many years to get to where they are today.

itunes_nepal_earthquakeFor those who have been following the news, it was just recently that Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake where it has been estimated that over 2,400 people have been killed in the process. Safe to say that this is very sad news, although thankfully it seems that governments around the world and NGOs have rallied to try and bring as much relief as they can to the area.

Apple is also looking to do their part as a feature has been launched in the iTunes Store in which users will be able to donate money to the American Red Cross who will then use those funds in their relief efforts. As you can see in the screenshot above, users will be able to choose amounts as low as $5 and go up to $200, 100% of which will be going to the Red Cross.

Consumer Reports is a name you might have heard of in the past with regards to testing electronic products. A few years ago, the company refused to recommend the iPhone 4 due to its antennagate scandal, although last year the company did come to Apple’s defense with regards to bendgate.

Now we’ve seen other tests conducted on the Apple Watch but if you’re looking for a more precise and scientific method of testing, then Consumer Reports’ video should not disappoint.

silent_hills_2Over the weekend it was reported that the Silent Hill’s teaser game PT would be pulled from the PlayStation Store, this led to speculation that it could also be spelling the end of the upcoming title and if comments made by some of the major players involved in making the game are true, it certainly looks like the game has been cancelled.

This supposedly came about when the game’s co-director Guillermo del Toro told attendees at a recent film festival in San Francisco that the game wasn’t going to happen. This was retweeted by del Toro’s assistant and was later picked up and confirmed by Norman Reedus who was supposed to portray the game’s protagonist (and also of the Walking Dead fame).
