New rumor claims Lenovo will try to buy BlackBerry as soon as this week

Lenovo BlackBerry Merger Rumor

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before — or actually, don’t bother because we know you’ve heard this one before. One of Benzinga’s sources claims that Lenovo is once again looking to buy Canadian smartphone pioneer BlackBerry, despite the fact that such talks reportedly went nowhere last year due to security concerns raised by both the Canadian and American governments.

Here’s how Apple’s ads have evolved since the 1970s

Apple Ads Compilation

Before actor John “And I’m a PC” Hodgman turned the PC into a laughable dope, before dancing silhouettes convinced you to buy an iPod and before George Orwell’s novel came to life in a 60-second spot during the 1984 Super Bowl, Apple made posters.

Meet all the ‘Android L’ logos that never stood a chance of becoming real

Android 5.0 Lollipop Logos

Google was shameless about teasing us all about what the “L” in “Android L” stood for until this week when the company finally revealed that its latest software build would be called Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Android Developers Conference has written a humorous post that details some of the “rejected” Android L names and logos, although the site notes that none of these were ever under real consideration by Google and that it made all of these concepts up just for fun.

Here’s where we might finally find alien life

Search For Alien Life

One of the lesser moons of Saturn, Mimas, has been largely viewed as a boring lump of ice. But a new discovery has suddenly turned this moon into hot property: its rotational wobble turns out to be far stronger than expected. Mimas is almost perfectly spherical, so a robust wobble implies that something intriguing is going on below its surface…  and that something is very likely to be sloshing. The most likely explanation for the wobble would be an internal ocean starting between 24 and 31 kilometers below the moon’s surface.

The FBI ratchets up its scare campaign over smartphone encryption

iOS Android Smartphone Encryption

Did you know that if Apple and Google encrypt data on smartphones then terrorists, pedophiles and other very bad people will be able to roam completely free and likely destroy society as we know it? That’s the message that Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey has been sending and he was at it again this week in a speech delivered to the Brookings Institute in which he railed against smartphone encryption as a direct threat to law enforcement’s ability to gather evidence.

You can’t install OS X Yosemite on your Mac because you’re already running it

OS X Yosemite Download

Apple on Thursday released the final build of OS X Yosemite, which became available to Mac users as a free download from the Mac App Store. However, not all Mac users were able to install it on their devices, as their Mac App Store apps would not make the update available. In case you’re one of those people still checking to see whether the update is ready, you should know there’s a simple explanation of why you can’t update: You’re already running it. Just click on that download button (as in the image above), and your Mac will tell you that you’re already running OS X 10.10.
