inbox invJust the other day Google announced Inbox, a new email initiative by Google that aims to revolutionize the way we view our emails and access our messages. So far based on reviews of those who have tried the feature, it seems to be quite a success and a hit amongst users, which is why we can’t say we’re too surprised to learn that there are many who are clamoring for an invite.

Well the good news is that Google has since enabled a feature in Inbox that allows invited users to send an additional 3 invites to their friends or family who might want to check out the service. This is similar to how Gmail started out and how it spread – through the use of invites. This will no doubt curb the scalpers on eBay who are currently selling their invites for an otherwise free service.

apple beats 640x324When Apple acquired Beats, many were wondering what will become of Beats Music and iTunes Radio. After all both are sort of competitors as far as digital music is concerned, but will Apple keep one product and eventually phase out the next? Well according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it seems like Apple could eventually merge Beats Music into iTunes.

The report states that come next year, Apple could integrate Beats Music into iTunes. In some way this isn’t too surprising given that Ian Rogers, the person who helped build Beats Music, is now in charge of iTunes Radio. There have also been talks about Apple possibly doing something new with Beats Music as opposed to killing off the service entirely.

ipad lockAs per our report last week, one of the special features of Apple’s new iPads is the fact that it comes with a special SIM card that allows users to choose their carrier from a software menu, as opposed to having to physically swap out SIM cards belonging to other carriers. It sounds like a pretty great idea and perhaps an idea that could become the standard in the future.

That being said, it seems that not all carriers are playing nice. According to reports, it seems that if you were to choose AT&T’s service via the software menu, it would lock the SIM card to AT&T, meaning that users will be unable to swap to a different carrier in the future if they wanted to do so.

grandma wifi blockerFor many of us, not having a decent signal on our smartphones, or even being in a “dead zone” while the entire home has been set up to feature Wi-Fi connectivity is a nightmare, but for 72 year old grandmother Stefanie Russell, that would be heaven. It is not because she is a Luddite, but simply because she claims to suffer from a condition where being in the presence of a cellular signal or Wi-Fi network would end up giving her headaches as well as nausea.

iphone bend burntI am quite sure that many of us are more or less fed up with the entire BendGate debacle concerning the iPhone 6, as there is a new DyeGate that has emerged as well. Having said that, it looks as though the end of the BendGate issue is not yet in sight, especially after it was alleged that an iPhone 6 was bent, catching fire afterwards, resulting in a second-degree burn to its owner. The iPhone 6 happened to be enclosed in a leather case that could very well have offered a certain degree of protection, but that did not seem to be the case – pun not intended.

robot cheekYes, we have read about a robot that can help combat malaria, with the potential for robots to provide a brighter future in the fight against the ebola virus, but here we are with a robot which is capable of performing brain surgery – through a very different means. This particular robot will go about its duty through the patient’s cheek, now how about that? Not just any brain surgery in general, but to make its way around corrective epilepsy brain surgery in particular, and doing so with a far lower risk than the normal method, not to mention in a less invasive manner.

transformer robotI am quite sure that many of us are stoked by the very idea of a cybernetic lifeform, especially one that is capable of transforming into the latest model Ferrari and zip down the highway, turning back to its humanoid form as and when required. While that remains a fantasy at this point in time, and will rightly be in the science fiction category for a long, long time to come, humankind might have made a small step towards the impossible thanks to the likes of Brave Robotics, Asratec Corp. and Tomy Co. Ltd. working together. As a result of their collaboration, they have come up with J-deite.

xbox video updateIt has not been too long since the most recent update for the Xbox Video app on Windows Phone was released, but there is a general feeling that it has taken a whole lot longer ever since the app did bring a significant update – or updates as well as enhancements apart from the now standard arrangement of “bug fixes and improvements”. Having said that, there is a new update for Xbox Video on Windows Phone, although do not get your hopes up too high that this will be a life changing update for everyone.

iphone6 dyegateWhile the iPhone 6 as well as the iPhone 6 Plus has seen its fair share of issues right after release, this does not mean that interest in the two handsets have waned. On the contrary, they have actually buoyed Apple to a new record where quarterly earnings are concerned. Unfortunately, right after the entire bending chassis issue, there might just be another iPhone 6 flaw could raise the ire of those who have been loyal to the iPhone brand all this while – which would be having dye from a blue pair of jeans actually discoloring the plastic strips that are located on the back of the phone.
