Opera’s Coast browser adds iPhone support, adds iCloud syncing of bookmark tiles

Originally posted on 9to5Mac:

Opera first launched Coast back in September 2013, on the iPad. Although it didn’t make a huge impression on the App Store first time around, Opera is probably hoping its new version will be more popular.

The app has been fully reworked for the iPhone size. There are hardly any buttons onscreen; the app relies almost exclusively on gesture-based navigation.

Poll: If the rumors are true, will you buy the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6?

Originally posted on 9to5Mac:

With it seeming increasingly likely that Apple plans to launch two versions of the iPhone 6, one with a 4.7-inch screen, the other with a larger 5.5-inch display, which one will you buy?

Last time we ran a poll, we didn’t know what sizes were on the cards, so simply asked you to choose from a range of sizes. At that point, most of you opted for something in the 4.6-5 inch range, with only 7 percent wanting something larger than five inches.

Now that the likely sizes seem more certain, and you’ve had a chance to look at a whole bunch of concept images, we thought it would be interesting to see whether you’re still of the same view, or whether or are now tempted by the idea of a 5.5-inch screen …

In Cook’s latest interview with The Wall Street Journal, the Apple CEO largely reiterates his comments about the company’s values and the product creation process but also expanded on his opinion of mobile payments.

Cook said that their strong results should qualm some of the recent anti-Apple chatter. However, he added that it will likely take the addition of some new products to change people’s minds…

All-in-one bed is perfect for you, you lazy bum (Also, why don’t you get a job?)

Originally posted on RocketNews24:

We can all agree that being lazy is the best. There’s nothing quite like spending a weekend catching up on Game of Thrones, stuffing your face with pizza and taking care of certain, uh… solo carnal needs (Just me?). That said, laziness can be a slippery slope. One too many unproductive weekends can easily turn into a vicious cycle of booze, potato chips and Three’s Company reruns just as addictive as any illicit substance.

That’s why this all-in-one lazy-enabling bed is probably downright dangerous.  With the proper placement, this bed allows you to do practically anything other than go to the bathroom without ever taking a single step away from your mattress.
