Apple once again finds that dumping Samsung is harder than it looks

iPhone 6 Chip Production

In an effort to further distance itself from rival Samsung, Apple signed an agreement with TSMC regarding the ongoing production of microprocessors for its smartphones and other devices last summer. On Thursday, Reuters published a new report which suggests that Apple might be rethinking this arrangement, as Samsung is expected to supply a larger proportion of the 14 nanometer smartphone chips than TSMC in the second half of 2015.

Hackers target Nest as a warning to Google about data-sharing

Google Nest Jailbreak Hack

If you ask Nest about sharing data with its new owner, the company will say that advertising isn’t part of its business model and that it plans to protect the privacy of its customers from Google. Nest will have to share some data with Google and others in order to enable automatic home-related features, but it is not supposed to lead to Google targeting users with even more ads than it currently does. To make sure Google won’t someday spam Nest owners with ads, a group of hackers plans to take preemptive action against Google and Nest, Forbes reports.

Why the Xbox One looks like a terrific long-term investment

Xbox One 9 Year Lifespan

For many of us, nine years was far too long to wait for a new generation of consoles. Although the PlayStation 3 and especially the Xbox 360 were as much platforms for continued growth as they were gaming consoles, many would argue that the industry was going limp by 2013. There were plenty of standout releases, but if anything was going to reinvigorate developers, it would be new hardware.

Netflix would rather the FCC do nothing than authorize ‘fast lanes’

Netflix FCC Net Neutrality Filing
