  • Report: Apple will kill the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7

    Even though the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus mildly surprised the world by being ever-so-slightly thicker than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple’s apparent obsession with thinness is far from over. A Japanese blog cites a source who says Apple intends to do away with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack for the iPhone 7 and require users to hook up their cans via a Lightning connector or Bluetooth. The move would enable Apple to shave off “more than 1mm” from the thickness of the current iPhone 6S, according to 9to5Mac, citing the Japanese blog Macotakara. This could give Apple an opportunity to boast that the iPhone 7 is the thinnest iPhone ever. Related: Apple’s patent hints at waterproof iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches The 3.5mm headphone jack is essentially the bottleneck to supreme thinness, since it “can hardly be thinner because it is the world standard,” according to Macotakara. Apple once considered replacing the 3.5mm port with a 2.5mm port, according to 9to5Mac. Last year, Apple introduced Lightning headphone specs, though Lightning headphones are still a rarity. “The report claims that Apple will bundle Lightning connector-equipped EarPods with the next iPhone, incorporating a tiny DA (Digital to Analog) converter into the connector,” according to 9to5Mac. If this report is accurate, Apple’s move would open the floodgates for manufacturers of 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapters. It also surfaces questions about charging the iPhone while a headphone is plugged in. Also watch: Apple iPhone 6S Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Please enable Javascript to watch this video

  • 5 shows to stream this week: Chris Rock’s Top Five, Kingsman, and more

    As streaming video grows at a monster pace, there’s always something awesome coming online, no matter the week. What’s dropping and when becomes important knowledge as you organize your queue and schedule your binge time accordingly. We know you don’t have time to cull the good from the bad in the barrage of new movies and TV shows loading up the Internet pipelines, but don’t worry — we do. Here are five of the best titles to stream this week: Top Five Amazon Top Five comes from the mind of super-star comedian Chris Rock who wrote, directed, and starred in the film alongside Rosario Dawson. The plot follows a disenchanted comedian and alcoholic who is being interviewed by a New York Times film critic (played by Dawson). An interesting documentary-esq look into the life of a world famous African American comedian, Rock plays a character very similar to himself, offering a colorful glimpse into a jaded star who is looking for something more. Kingsman: The Secret Service Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation HBO Spy film  Kingsman: The Secret Service exists in a world in which James Bonds were raised young. The plot centers on a young British misfit who is recruited for the opportunity to join one of the world’s top spy organizations — The Kingsman. When a wealthy maniac, played by Samuel L. Jackson, threatens the world, it is up to the young agent to save the day. A somewhat-campy take on the spy thriller based on the popular comics,  Kingsman uses good casting, a simple story, and incredible fight scenes to distinguish itself from the pack. Best of Enemies Netflix A documentary that follows the intense philosophical and political debates between legendary commentators William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal,  Best of Enemies explores the powerful clash of ideas between two of the world’s most celebrated intellectuals in the late-1960s. With modern commentary from Christopher Hitchens and Dick Cavett, the film has been lauded by critics for clearly portraying a pivotal moment in American consciousness, along with the ability to trace the ideological roots of the neo-liberal and neo-conservative movements in America. Home Dreamworks Netflix An animated comedy from Dreamworks starring Rihanna and  Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons,  Home follows a misfit alien on a journey to help a child (Rihanna) find her mother in an ET-occupied earth. Also starring Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez, the film is light and heartwarming — essentially the exact opposite of our above pick — and a great flick to put on for the whole family over this holiday weekend. Falling Skies (Season 5) Amazon The fifth and final season of the Stephen Speilberg-produced alien invasion drama from TNT hits Amazon Prime for the first time this month. The series showcases a faltering alien civilization — a result of the efforts of fighting humans during the previous four seasons. Following a human militia aimed at ridding earth of alien occupation once and for all, Falling Skies had a relatively successful run on TV, and is a worthwhile stream — especially now that all seasons have been made available for Amazon Prime.
