Polygon reports today that 2K Sports is bringing NHL 2K back to mobile devices, four years on from when the game was retired.
The hockey game will arrive on mobile devices some time this fall, and will cost $7.99.
2K Sports’s other mobile sports franchises include NBA and WWE, both of which are doing very well, which doubtless influenced the company wanting to bring another of its legendary sporting franchises back to iOS.
The world of cyber-security just got better for iOS 8 users. Agile Bits, the creators of the popular 1Password app and service just made their remarkable software FREE to new users on iOS. On top of that, previous users of the v4 of the software get a free upgrade to the Pro version.
For those unfamiliar with the software, 1Password basically lets you securely store your important data and passwords, and can automatically log you into websites with a single button. With 1Password, you no longer need to remember your username, password, or even the website address.
The new pricing model is not all though. This newest version also includes some added functionality with iOS 8, including the ability to work with Apple's Touch ID fingerprint sensor! Awesome!
Here's a quick breakdown of the rest of the cool new 1Password features for iOS 8:
These days, more and more Internet users are getting concerned with their privacy and how their intimacy is being protected. Apple is also well aware of that and that's why it has recently changed its privacy measures, announcing new changes that will please consumers.
Tim Cook has revealed that neither Apple or the government can’t see any of your personal information if you have a passcode enabled on devices running the new OS. Here's what Apple's bos said:
“Our business model is very straightforward: We sell great products. We don’t build a profile based on your e-mail content or web browsing habits to sell to advertisers. We don’t ‘monetize’ the information you store on your iPhone or in iCloud. And we don’t read your e-mail or your messages to get information to market to you. Our software and services are designed to make our devices better. Plain and simple.”
Apple;s new privacy page details how it protects your data from prying eyes, so yf you’re using a device running iOS 8 and have a passcode activated, Apple and the government can’t see any of the data behind the passcode. Even if the police would require Apple to do that, the company just won't be able to do it. Cook also add the following:
“We have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.”
He also added the following:
"Our commitment to protecting your privacy comes from a deep respect for our customers. We know that your trust doesn’t come easy. That’s why we have and always will work as hard as we can to earn and keep it."

Steve Jobs is widely believe to be one of the biggest innovators of all time, but few now that he was actually an art major in college. Thus, despite working with figure and facts, as several interviews have revealed, he was actually a very creative person. And this is apparently something that he wanted to pass on to his kids.
In a previous interview, Steve Jobs responded to tech reporter Nick Bilton’s question about whether his children love the iPad 2. The late Apple CEO replied the following
“They haven’t used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”
Apparently, Steve Jobs wanted his three children to develop a love for creative expression, and that's why he and his wife have set limits to technology use. Chriss Street from BreitBart.com explains quite nicely why Jobs and others have decided to take this approach in their education:
September has been the month when Apple has announced its much-awaited iPhone 6 and the bigger iPhone 6 Plus. And now it seems that October will be the month when the company will announce the new line of its next iPad tablets. According to multiple publications, the company's next major product unveiling is expected to take place around mid-to-late October.
Here's what AppleInsider has recently said:
Yikes! There are so many folks out there slamming Apple's download servers trying to get the iOS 8 update that some major issues have been reported. Some folks have had their update fail and are now unable to restore from a backup. This includes users of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch around the globe.
Between software update errors, server errors and others, updating to iOS 8 right now could be a harrowing experience. The worst culprit is actually an unknown error that sometimes pops up through iTunes. Afterwards, even clicking on the "possible fixes" link provided doesn't handle the issue in all cases. This causes the device to get stuck on the download process screen and rebooting it doesn't fix the problem.
It might be worth it to hold tight for a few days until the major glut of consumers is already finished getting the update.
The long wait is finally over. While developers have been able to play with iOS 8 for quite some time already, the rest of us mere mortals have been content to read about all of the cool features. Speaking of cool features, the video above will walk you through most of them.
Here's a quick list of some of the big highlights,
- Improved integration between Apple devices (although you need to avoid iCloud Drive for now).
- Interactive notifications
- App widgets in the Notification Center
- Messages improvements that let users manage group conversations
- Third-party access to both the keyboard and Touch ID has been enabled
- Apple QuickType predictive keyboard
- A new Health app is included with iOS 8 which combines health and fitness data from several places
- A new Family Sharing feature lets families of up to six people share apps, music, books, and more
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 4s (compatible, but not recommended due to performance issues)
- iPod touch (fifth-generation only)
- iPad Air
- iPad mini
- iPad mini with Retina display
- iPad (third-generation and fourth-generation)
- iPad 2
Your other option is to connect your iOS device to a Windows or Mac computer where you can download and install the new software through iTunes. Of course, it's important to back up your device using iCloud or iTunes before...
G4Games reports today on a new leak of pictures of what is said to be a case for the forthcoming iPad Air 2.
Possibly the most interesting thing about these new pictures is that they appear to show a new portal close to the main camera, which nobody is quite sure what it actually is. As G4Games notes, it could in fact just be the location of the microphone, or could it possibly be something to do with the camera, especially as it is located in close proximity to the camera. It’s possible that the space is for some sort of laser-focusing device, or an LED flash. If it were to be the latter, this would be a first for an iPad.
Apple is expected to launch a new range of iPads some time before the end of the year, presumably once everyone has got over the excitement of the iPhone 6 launch!
And given the unprecedented and record-breaking success of said iPhone launch, expectations will be higher than ever for the next generation of iPads.
