  • Hyperkin Retron 5 combines ten consoles into one on December 10 for $99

    We love what the Hyperkin Retron 5 brings to the table, namely compatibility with ten classic gaming system cartridges: NES, Famicom, Super NES and Famicom, Sega Master System, Genesis and Mega Drive, and Game Boy original, Color and Advance. The problem is, Hyperkin’s played coy about it’s price and availability… until now. It’ll be available on December 10th, and it’ll be on sale in both Europe (for €89.99) and in the US ($99.99). And, it turns out that the Retron 5 that’ll go on sale will have a few more tricks up its sleeve than the prototype we played with back at E3. The exterior’s been modified to better cool the internal components, and it’ll pack a Sega Power Base Converter that lets you play Sega’s Master System games. So, now you can officially start carving out space in your entertainment center for the Retron 5 — which shouldn’t be difficult once you’ve cleared out all the elder consoles it replaces. Less is more, people.

  • iOS 7 bug enables user to bypass lockscreen, send emails and status updates

    iOS 7 bug enables user to bypass lockscreen, send emails and status updates

    The moment operating systems become available to the public is also the moment millions of people have the opportunity to hunt around and find bugs. And, it appears that at least one rather critical bug has already been discovered in iOS 7. A keen-eyed user found a way to bypass the passcode-protected lockscreen and gain access to the device’s photos app, giving him the ability to hijack the email or social network account associated with that device. Essentially, you access the alarm clock through Control Center, make your way into the multitasking menu and head into the camera app from there. We’ve embedded the video evidence below, just in case you’re interested in trying it out for yourself; we tested it out using an iPhone 5s running iOS 7.0.1, and were able to duplicate the user’s claims.

    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an iOS bug capable of bypassing your lockscreen and compromising the security of your device, and Apple typically squashes those bugs with patches; the last one took a month, however, so we’d like to see an update to iOS 7.0.2 a bit sooner than that. While you wait, the easiest way to avoid this concern is to disable the ability to access Control Center from the lockscreen (this can be found in the settings).

  • Google drops its black menu bar, rolls out more streamlined look for the web

    Google drops its black menu bar,

    Some users of Google’s web-based products may have already seen the familiar black menu bar disappear from one Google site or another, but the company has now confirmed that was only just the beginning. It’s announced today that a broader rollout is underway that will see most of its sites get a new “app launcher” in its place. That new interface should be familiar to anyone who’s used Android or Chrome OS; it simply consists of a small icon in the top right of each page that expands to reveal a grid of larger icons. According to Google, the change is being done to make getting around various Google services more “seamless,” and eliminate any distractions once you’re inside an app.

    Along with the menu bar change, Google has also confirmed that it’s “refined the color palette and letter shapes” of its logo, and that the updated version of it will be making its way across the company’s various offerings along with the new menu bar. You can apparently expect those changes to occur over the next few weeks.
