You might not be completely happy with iOS, but the iPhone s operating system is probably one of the best and easiest to use in the world.It completely changed the smartphone landscape and directly influenced the trajectory of Android which was shaping up to be a BlackBerry clone until Google changed it ahead of release to make it more like the iPhone .But the iPhone s OS could have been a lot worse, a new leak indicates.Images and videos showing the click wheel iPod-based OS that at one point competed against iOS internally at Apple were published online Friday morning.Sonny Dickson, an Apple insider who has posted plenty of iPhone-related leaks in the past, got his hands on a clip that shows an iPhone prototype running this iPod-like operating system called Acorn OS.It s exactly as terrible as you d think it would be.

Veggie burgers have come a long way since the 80's, and some are actually quite tasty.There are, however, a ton of store-bought options out there—there s even one that seeps reddish liquid—and choosing can be hard.Luckily, the brave souls at Epicurious taste-tested a whole bunch so we don t have to.When it comes to veggie patties, there are two main types: those that try to imitate meat and those that just embrace what they are.The Epi staff tasted some of each, and there were definite winners and losers:Best Veggie-Forward Burger: Dr. Praeger s California Veggie Burgers, which had vaguely curry-ish, carrot-forward flavors and recognizable veggies, and was slightly sweet, with a good amount of seasoning, and nice texture.

CES 2017 is under way and the tech community has already been dazzled by various new consumer products, some mainstream and some off the beaten track, such as this smart cat feeder.One such innovative and beneficial product to be showcased this year is a smart toy, launched by French startup Leka, which is designed to help children with autism and other developmental disabilities learn better and communicate.The device, which is designed to resemble a small spherical robot, not unlike Star Wars' BB8, has been created to be used by professionals at schools and therapy organisations that focus on providing support for those with autism and other such conditions.The robot toy, however, is not only for children and can also be used by adults with developmental disabilities, the Verge reported.The smart toy can be set up to either be controlled by a caregiver or put in an autonomous state.The device's primary function is to act as an aid to learning, playing educational games.

Amazons patent visar hur bolagets drönare ska kunna skydda sig mot luftangrepp.När leveranserna flyttar upp till luften behöver Amazon helt nya sätt att freda sina värdefulla paket.Under 2016 genomförde både 7-Eleven och Amazon sina första direkta drönarleveranser till kunders hem.I Amazons fall rörde det sig om en påse popcorn och en mediaspelare som skickades ut till ett hushåll i Cambridge i England.I och med att framtidens leveransfordon – eller snarare farkoster – lämnar vägarna på marken kommer det att dyka upp helt nya hot, förutspår e-handelsföretaget.En patentansökan som beviljades i mitten av december avslöjar hur Amazon vill kunna försvara sina leveransdrönare mot angripare.

Xiaomi Redmi series is one of the most popular budget or lower midrange choice not just in China, but more or less anywhere else.So it makes sense some other manufacturers are trying to emulate the success and steal some of the spotlight, just like Doogee F7 is trying to do comparing itself to the Redmi Note 4.But with a little price twist in their favor.Both phones are actually remarkably similar hardware-wise and even in the design can be found many connecting points like metal body with almost the same weight, 170g for Dooogee and 175g for Xiaomi.But if you look inside the phones it s basically identical setup to almost every detail.Starting with the 5,5-inch FullHD display, Helio X20 processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB of storage, 13 Mpix rear camera, 5 Mpix front camera, microSD slot, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and fingerprint scanner on the back.Redmi Note 4 has a bit of an edge with 4100 mAh battery capacity compared to 3600 mAh in the F7, but it s still solid and both of course support the fast charging.Siblings at its best one could say.Pricing is also quite the same with the retail price level being put at $189.99, but here comes the Doogee with an ace up their sleeve.

Beloved bricks, meet Generation Code.Dubbed Lego Boost, the new kits bring brick creations to life with simple motors and sensors while teaching the basics of programming.Unlike Lego s more-complex Mindstorms systems, which are used in schools to teach robotics, the Boost system was designed for children as young as age 7, and feels closer to the classic brick experience.After getting a brief chance to play with them, I can report the new kits might delight an older demographic, too, particularly parents who want to spark an interest in coding.Some assembly is required—these are Lego bricks, after all, sold in kits of about 850 pieces each.Children can choose from five different versions.

A lawsuit filed in California this week claims Apple is responsible for a fatal crash because the tech giant had a patent to prevent drivers from using the FaceTime app, but failed to install it.The case stems from an incident on Christmas Eve in 2014, when a driver struck a vehicle at 65 miles per hour occupied by James and Bethany Modisette and their two children along I-35 near Dallas.The driver, according to the complaint, told police he was using the FaceTime app on his iPhone 6 Plus at the time of the crash.Officers found it was still active when they arrived at the scene.The Modisettes and their daughter, Isabellah, sustained injuries, but the their other child, five-year-old Moriah, died from her injuries at the hospital.Apple s involvement stems from the company s alleged failure to implement technology that, according to the Modisettes lawyers, could ve prevented the crash.
