Samsung is working on a software update for stubborn Galaxy Note 7 owners that haven t yet turned in their potentially defective handsets.The update is scheduled to roll out to South Korean users beginning September 20.The Associated Press, citing a front-page advertisement in South Korean newspaper Seoul Shinmun, reports that the update will prevent users from charging the phone s battery past the 60 percent mark which should hopefully keep them from overheating and exploding.Seriously, it's not worth risking it folks.The advertisement stated that the update is a measure to put consumer safety first, adding that they apologize for the inconvenience it may cause.It s unclear whether or not Samsung will distribute the update outside of its home country although Yonhap News Agency claims the manufacturer is in talks with wireless providers regarding the update.
Have you ever taken a photo and thought it looked great on your digital camera s LCD, only to get home and discover an overexposed mess on your computer screen?It can be difficult to discern if an image looks good on a small, bright screen, but fortunately, there s a tool you can use to determine whether your image is too bright or too dark: your camera s histogram.This is a feature that used to be reserved only for more advanced cameras, but in recent years has been added to more and more base level units – even many phones.The dictionary definition of a histogram is a graphical representation of data distribution, usually displayed as a bar graph.In practice, this looks like a chart with a series of peaks and valleys.This is incredibly helpful, because you can watch your histogram change as you frame your image and adjust your exposure.

Brexit, the gift that keeps on giving, means that Brits may soon have to apply for and purchase a travel visa in order to go on holiday in Europe.Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Britain was engaged in a two-way negotiation with the EU - and could not guarantee visa-free travel abroad would be protected.It s being reported that the document would cost up to £50, a pretty significant outlay if you only wanted a dirty weekend.That s the same price as at least 27 beers in a grotty but oh-so-loveable Greek taverna.The EU and the commissioners may be considering issues – they will be considering their negotiation with us, just as we are considering it with them, Rudd told the BBC.But I m going to make sure that what we do get is in the best interest of the UK.

Many of those that attempted the upgrade this morning ran into some rather severe issues that necessitated a complete re-install of 9.3.5 and then a second attempt at an upgrade to iOS 10.Maybe you ve been jealous at the people that already had a beta version installed, or maybe you re completely new to the new version of iOS.Whatever the case, these are the five most important reasons why you ll want to pull the trigger on the update today.When the update is installed on your device you ll be greeted by a new home screen with some cool new tricks.Control Center has a new dual-pane look that moves the music controls a swipe away.To top it all off, the colors and shapes around the entire interface have been tweaked — there s a lot more white, interface elements are generally less transparent and some fonts here and there have been swapped around.
There are all kinds of home remedies for keeping your house pest-free, and essential oils are a big player.If you want to repel some roaches, a little peppermint oil is surprisingly effective.A mix of peppermint oil and white vinegar is a solid go-to for repelling several pests, especially spiders.But research from Auburn University suggests the mix is good for the peskiest of pests too.To make your own cockroach deterrent spray, Brittney Morgan at Apartment Therapy recommends dropping 10 drops of peppermint oil into a spray bottle willed with two parts water, one part white vinegar.Spritz it around cupboards, under the sink, in the bathroom, and anywhere else that roaches might want to hang out.
Apple unveiled two hot iPhones last week — they are hot, no matter what you hear about their boring design — and a formidable Apple Watch Series 2 that will give even smart watch makers even more headaches.The new devices have some impressive new features.Just look past the familiar design, and you ll spot a lot of exciting gems.Look even harder, and you ll see signs of the next-gen iPhone, the building blocks that Apple needs now for the smartphones of the future.And yes, the wireless AirPods are very exciting too, regardless of how much fun one can make at their expense.That means Apple is getting ready to incorporate that button in the screen, while also perfecting technology that can tell the difference home button presses and 3D Touches and deliver the accurate response.
The iPhone 7 isn't even out yet — preorders arrive on Friday — but already speculation for next year's model has reached a fever pitch.That's because the iPhone 7 is not a major redesign from last year's iPhone.But next year's iPhone, likely to be released in September 2017, is shaping up to be a major upgrade, according to The New York Times.Brian X. Chen reports that next year's iPhone will have two major changes, citing two current Apple employees.He writes:"Apple is likely to continue making iPhones without headphone jacks, and next year s iPhone will have a full-screen face with the virtual button built directly into the screen, according to two people at the company who spoke on condition of anonymity because the product details are private."This latest report backs up what we've heard about the 2017 iPhone.The current rumor is that Apple is preparing an update with several major new features for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone next year, including wireless charging and a bezel-free screen.The home button will be embedded into the glass panel, according to rumors and Apple fan John Gruber's idle speculation.That means next year's iPhone will look like one large display.All of these details line up with an analyst note from KGI Securities sent to clients.Jony Ive, Apple's head of design, reportedly wants next year's iPhone to look like "a single sheet of glass."
Your Apple TV is about to get a bunch of handy new features.With today s release of tvOS 10, you can make better searches with Siri, control your HomeKit connected devices with your Apple TV remote, and reduce some eye strain with the new dark mode.Siri now lets you combine multiple criteria in your searches.For example, you could say show me horror movies starring Christopher Lee, or show me crime TV shows from the 70s.Some third-party apps, like YouTube, now support Siri and deep links as well.If you were looking for a certain super-cute online video, you could say search YouTube for cat parade.
There are a lot of reasons as to why you want to revert back to iOS 9 after installing iOS 10.It s not difficult to revert, but you need to do it sooner than later.When iOS updates are released, the previous version remains signed for a short period of time.Eventually, Apple stops signing the previous version, which prevents you from installing the old version.First, you need to find a file called iOS device .ipsw.If you are downgrading an iPhone,the file will have a name like, iPhone8,2 9.3.5 13G36 Restore.ipsw .
It s that time of year again for the US Federal Communications Commission, lovingly called the FCC.It s that time when it is legally mandated to examine the state of broadband deployment in the country, which also means it will be in the crosshairs of ISPs, and vice versa.Netflix, not an ISP, is taking that opportunity to convince the FCC to declare, once and for all, that home Internet data caps are unreasonable, and sometimes even discriminatory.Such a statement, though not completely legally binding, could ISPs to make some adjustments to align Netflix s point of view.Data caps, whether on mobile data or home broadband, severely limit how much users can watch from Netflix, which, in turn, affects Netflix s overall business.Not exactly new, the business around data caps have come into much scrutiny of late, as the meteoric rise rate of Internet usage.

Those vague guesstimates of broadband speed offered by Rightmove and the like will have to be improved upon if the Digital Economy Bill goes ahead, with one clause within the new law's paperwork demanding that ISPs allow access to specific speed test results for individual addresses.Instead of vague geographic data that papers over the cracks in individual cabinets, the draft Digital Economy Bill wants ISPs to hand everything over to give movers access to the most important thing about their new home.It used to be surveys about the possibility of subsidence and rising damp, now it's all about how many megabits you might get through a wire all evening.According to the Local Government Association and everyone who's ever given internet speeds a second thought, the "up to" geographical speed estimates don't mean nuffin' until you've got through the door, connected your router and started the contention battle with your neighbours.The LGA's Mark Hawthorne said: "We support the Government's aims to allow Ofcom to demand providers open up their premises-level data on broadband so that residents can more easily compare who will provide the best service to their home -- not just their postcode, which can often be inaccurate."Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?
