Google’s Take on Apple’s AirDrop for Android, ‘Files Go,’ is Currently in Beta

Google brand new upcoming app, Files Go, works similar to Apple’s AirDrop, as it will allow users to manage, clean up, and share files to nearby Android-based devices via Bluetooth. Files Go — what will likely be a less-than 10MB download, according to the closed beta — has a file-transfer feature doesn’t appear to operate EXACTLY how AirDrop works, as both people need to have the Files Go app open, while AirDrop lets you send files from any app to any nearby contact, regardless over the recipient having a similar app.

The Apple IIc; Great for Gaming, Greater for remaking ‘Star Wars’ trailers…

Oh, the Apple IIc; a classic personal computer from back in the day. It was released in 1984 as the compact (which is what the “c” stood for) device which was essentially a complete Apple II computer setup (without the display and power supply) squeezed into a small notebook-sized housing. Even though it was discontinued in 1988, many enthusiasts have continued to find new and interesting uses for the Apple IIc (like with MANY other devices no longer in-production). For example, this shot-by-shot trailer remake of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is ONE of those interesting things Continue reading The Apple IIc; Great for Gaming, Greater for remaking ‘Star Wars’ trailers…

Check Out the Progress on Apple’s “Spaceship” Campus #2…

You recall a few years back when news broke of the futuristic design of Apple’s new campus (you know, the one that kinda looks like a spaceship), and we’ve been given trickles of information from the company on a near-monthly basis on the construction progress. Now, thanks to some aerial quadcopter footage (because they ARE NOT DRONES; I don’t care how quick and fancy it sounds) of how far the construction of the “spaceship” campus has come.

The NeXT Computer: A Great Piece of Tech That Failed in the Market

The vast history of technology is full with the plastic-framed corpses of then-brilliantly innovative devices that couldn’t catch on and then failed in the marketplace. In some cases, these devices were probably ahead of their time; some were crushed by competitors, worthy and unworthy (hello Zune); with some of them, maybe we were all just too stupid to buy them (hello Dreamcast). Out of all on them, in terms of computers, the one that hurts the most (should have been successful, but wasn’t), is Steve Job’s successor to the Macintosh, the NeXT Computer.

What Would an iPhone From 1985 Look Like?

Pierre Cerveau

Some of my fondest childhood memories involve booting up the Apple computers at my elementary school (and I’m talking early-1990s) to play Number Munchers, Oregon Trail, the Carmen SanDiego games, or make some pixel art in MacPaint. However, back in those days, Apple wasn’t into mobile devices yet (much like many other tech companies at the time), but artist Pierre Cerveau wanted to take a crack at the theory of what Apple’s very first smartphone might have looked like if it were made in the 1980s.
