Vevo "Music to Your Eyes" Logo

VEVO is mostly known as a YouTube channel that receives over 12 billion views each month (and that’s without all the Facebook freeloaded / pirated videos), carrying over 150,000 music videos. However, what is typically not known to the general public is that Vevo is not a part of YouTube. In fact, the channel is owned by Vevo, Inc., a joint venture of Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group with Abu Dhabi Media and Google itself. Originally, Vevo was funding itself through advertisements before and during its music videos, but the company faced Google’s decision to launch YouTube Music App, and subscription service which technically,

Report: Amazon To Ban Sales Of Apple TV And Google Chromecast


In a true “gloves off” scenario, Amazon will ban the sales of Apple TV and Google Chromecast devices in their shop, starting October 29th. This marks another chapter in the ever going battle of streaming services and providers. It seems that the online store giant is taking none of it from Google and Apple as it won’t allow Prime Video on neither the Apple TV and Chromecast devices. Likewise, the app is also not available for the Chromecast. The current generation of Apple TV (not the newly released one) is the 14th best selling device in the entire electronics section of Amazon. Currently is ranks 4th place

It seems Apple’s decision to craft iPhone 6s out of 7000 series aluminum paid off


Remember the whole ‘Bendgate’ scenario when the Apple iPhone 6 was released? It seems that the companie’s investment into crafting the new model out of sturdy and durable 7000 series aluminum paid off. The new iPhone 6S seems stronger, more resilient to bending and looking like a better made phone overall. The two guys from FoneFox will give you a real-life test of its capabilities and strength now. They’ve recorded a video, where they, employing various techniques and levels of force, try to bend the newest iPhone.

Rumor: Apple’s Upcoming ‘A10’ is a Sexa-core Processor?


According to a rumor, Apple’s next processor should bear the name ‘A10’ and it may come with as much as six-cores. It would be manufactured using a 14 nanometer production process and it would be produced by either Samsung in Texas or TMSC in Taiwan. Original rumor mentioned 10nm process node, but that just goes to show that original source should be taken with a kilogram of sea salt on its tail. These two companies would be competing for orders, the Weibo source said. We can get behind the naming, but the rest seems a bit off as Apple is not a company known for doing major internal hardware changes.

You do get the ‘optimized’ iOS9 upgrade (planned obsolescence), some minor styling changes and a more scratch resistant glass, improved aluminum case, changes to the front / rear camera and the way things are done on the phone. But for me as an example, this changes don’t do much to justify switching from the old to the new. The introduction of the 64-bit A9 chip will increase performance, but it is
