Developers hack Apple Watch to run native apps

Apple Watch face

Developers Steve Troughton-Smith and Adam Bell, with the help of saurik, have managed to hack watchOS 2 to run fully-native apps. As noted by 9to5Mac, Troughton-Smith posted a video last night showing evidence of the feat.

The big deal here is that even though Apple says that support for native apps is coming in watchOS 2, developers are still going to be limited on what they can do. This hack, however, breaks those limitations, allowing the use of all accessible iOS UI frameworks…. Read the rest of this post here

Embattled BlackBerry considering Android phones

BlackBerry RIP (image 001)

Research In Motion saw its fortunes spectacularly erased in a few short years following the iPhone’s release in the summer of 2007. Fast-forward to 2015 and the company is now considering  putting Google’s Android software on its phones in a complete U-turn for the Canadian handset maker, according to a report Friday by Reuters.

It’s unclear whether the rumored switch would spell the end of the company’s own BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system.

RIM once dominated smartphone sales but now has a market share of less than one percent. Moreover, a former BlackBerry CEO has publicly admitted that Apple’s iPhone has single-handily killed his company’s treasured BlackBerry family of smartphones famed for their enterprise security and clickety-clack keyboards….

Hannibal: “Primavera” Review

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.

I could have done without the extended flashback that began this episode, showing us events from the Season 2 finale again. It went on so long, without adding anything new (unlike a later dream sequence that also incorporated previously seen moments) that it almost felt like the episode came in short and they needed to pad the time. But after that, there was plenty of good stuff to, ahem, chew on.

Because Will Graham is back! …And his life is as miserable as ever, naturally.

Yes, the second episode of Season 3 let us know that Will did survive that night in Hannibal’s house (though we still weren’t given info on Alana or Jack) while also deftly playing with our emotions by making us believe that Abigail had survived too… only for it to be revealed she didn’t make it and Will was imagining her accompanying him to Italy. Using his own “Memory Palace” in the way Hannibal once told him about.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Review

High school is a battlefield littered with the bloody and broken remains of adolescent self-esteem. At least that’s often what it appears to be as viewed through the lens of American media; either that, or a breeding ground for supernatural supermodels. Those still suffering the indignities of trying to squeeze either into or out of an identity-stifling clique, or those who have made it through to the other side, know that there’s some truth to the heightened view of teenhood as an emotional warzone.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’s Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann) believes he’s figured out the perfect evasion maneuver to survive the often treacherous – and likely barracuda-infested – waters of adolescence. Be visible enough to remain invisible. Greg’s thesis is that if you remain cordial with everyone, but attached to no one, you will make it through your teen years relatively unscathed. Greg is of course destined to learn what everyone who’s walked the planet must: You can run, and you can hide, but life’s coming for you. If you’re unfortunate enough to truly find a way to insulate and isolate yourself from its attendant sorrows and exhilarations, well, you may as well be…The truth is, no one really can, though.

Madame Bovary Review

The story of Madame Bovary can be a tough sell or an easy one depending on your personal point of view. Much of it hinges on whether you believe the titular character’s actions are acceptable or not. But, whatever you may feel about Emma Bovary, you will assuredly agree that Mia Wasikowska is brilliant in the part in the latest film incarnation.

The classic Gustave Flaubert novel, which has been adapted for the screen several times before, here is directed by Sophie Barthes with a screenplay from Barthes and Felipe Marino. While the overarching plot will undoubtedly be familiar to those who know the story, it is not a straight adaptation with some characters and incidents unfolding in somewhat altered fashion.
