iPhone 6 review

iPhone 6 reviewReviewing an iPhone is a curious endeavor. One might think it’s just like reviewing any other device, and the processes are indeed roughly the same. The difference, and it is a vast difference, is the purpose. When reviewing a smartphone, a pair of shoes, a computer, a car, a movie or even a toaster, the purpose is generally to use experience and expertise to assist readers, or viewers, in making a buying decision. Even small gadget blogs can influence thousands or tens of thousands of people. A site like BGR influences millions and a large media organization can influence tens of millions of people. But with iPhones, this simply is not the case. When it comes to the iPhone 6 or

Report: Jihadi Cell More Direct Threat Than ISIL, Say Intelligence Officials

Report: Jihadi Cell More Direct Threat Than ISIL, Say Intelligence OfficialsA group of jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe may be more of a direct and imminent threat to the United States than ISIL, say intelligence officials. According to a report from the Associated Press, a cell with al-Qaida links known as the Khorasan group is at the center of the organization — a division known to be working with Yemeni bomb-makers with plans to target U.S. This is why, for example, the TSA decided in July not to allow uncharged cell phones and other devices to pass through security. "The group's repeated efforts to conceal explosive devices to destroy aircraft demonstrate its continued pursuit of high-profile attacks against the West, its increasing awareness of Western security procedures and its efforts to adapt to those procedures that we adopt," Nicholas Rasmussen, deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center, told a Senate panel this week.
