Apple is often listed as one of the main companies behind the surge of the digital music economy in the last decade. The introduction of the iTunes music store almost single handedly crafted a digital marketplace, putting music in front of consumers around the world and making it extremely easy for them to get the latest artist releases. As music sales and downloads begin to slow down across the industry, Apple is reportedly looking for ways to go swim against the tide by bolstering its own music offerings, which could see the fruit company partnering with Shazam Entertainment to offer a song and artist recognition service natively via Siri within iOS.

Google took a much needed step on Monday to update its terms of service that govern the use of its many products and offerings. As part of the update, and more than likely as part of a direct response to the numerous privacy lawsuits that are underway against the company, Google has provided some clarity on its automatic email scanning tools that form an integral part of its mail service, Gmail. Whether or not the new terms of service will be enough to appease those who have brought claims against the company via the legal system is still unknown.

We thought things had gone a little too far when we heard that Apple had introduced an app section within the iOS App Store dedicated to taking selfies. The practice of taking a photo of yourself has – for one reason or another – grown immensely popular in the last six months, leaving Apple with no option but to try and capitalize on it by curating a selection of the finest selfie based apps out there. If, like us, you thought that things couldn’t get any crazier, then allow us to introduce you to S.E.L.F.I.E, the world’s first magical mirror that can capture your photo (read: selfie) and post it to Twitter.

If there’s one thing that really annoys me after purchasing an expensive piece of tech it’s when the whole thing catches fire and renders itself useless. It’s so inconvenient. Granted, it doesn’t happen a lot, but if Sony’s recent product awareness announcement is anything to go by then it looks like the VAIO Fit 11A could be at risk of doing just that. Sony has apparently discovered that the batteries used within the hybrid could contain a serious fault that puts the product at risk of spontaneously catching fire without any prior warning.

It’s fair to say that majority of the users jailbreak their iOS device with the intention of installing one or two essential packages to improve the overall experience which Apple provides out of the box. For those individuals, Cydia is thought of purely as a third-party app store and interacted with as such. However, there are also a number of power users who are passionate about jailbreaking and occasionally want to peek inside the executable files that make up the tweaks that they’re installing. If you happen to be one of those, and want to gain access to a .DEB file through your device then carry on reading.

It’s relatively rare that a mobile game comes along and manages to generate as much excitement and pre-release hype that the Family Guy announcement managed last December. Sure, there’s been a string of extremely popular smash hit games that have immediately benefited from going viral and getting tons of downloads and success on the back of that. However, the Family Guy franchise is an existing household name that already boasts an animated TV series, along with a whole heap of official merchandise. Add to that a stunning, extremely fun and visually impressive mobile game that’s now available to download for iOS and Android.

There’s been plenty of speculation recently surrounding Apple’s product plans for the remainder of the year. Conjecture and Internet based chit-chat continues to grow regarding what may or may not be included in iOS 8. Most of which will be either confirmed or denied when we get our first glimpse of the firmware in June at WWDC 2014. There’s also mounting speculation about the fruit company’s plans for the next-generation iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 6, with most focus being specifically placed on the device’s display dimensions. Ming-Chi Kuo, of KGI Securities fame, has added fuel to that fire and put the cat amongst the pigeons by releasing a product timeline, indicating that Q3 could be a huge period for Apple.

The company has been applying a lot of man hours and internal resources into not only polishing and fine tuning the Messenger app, but also implementing, testing and experimenting with new features.

If you’re an Internet junkie then the chances are high that you’ve come across the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug that rose to prominence on Monday. A number of extremely popular and frequently visited websites such as Pinterest, NASA, StackOverflow, OKCupid and Airbnb have the OpenSSL cryptographic library embedded into their architecture, and therefore have become immediately susceptible to the bug. Heartbleed was initially discovered by a Google security engineer in conjunction with Codenomicon, but what does it mean for you and your Internet usage?
