Samsung Infuse 4G Spider Commercial Makes Us Scream & Laugh

Published

on

It doesn’t happen too often, but AT&T has put out a hilarious spider commercial for the new Samsung Infuse 4G Android smartphone featuring the high end 4.5″ Super AMOLED display that, if commercials are to be believed, will cause your coworkers to freak out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcr2uWkJkzI

In the Samsung Infuse 4G Spider commercial, a prankster puts his new Infuse 4G down on the table with a spider on the display and scares a coworker, but thankfully “Dave” is ready with his shoe. Unfortunately, the Infuse 4G doesn’t look like it can withstand a hammering by Dave’s shoe.

    This is one of the most annoying commercials with the girl screaming. Everyone I know mutes the sound or changes to another station when it comes on.

        We’re with you – we try to grab the remote to turn it off as soon as that idiot actress starts screaming.  This commercial is AWFUL  – everyone I know hates it too.  Wish it would just go off the air.  It won’t do us any good to complain here though.  We should tell the company!!

          xD It’s unfair to call the actress an idiot for the commercial creator’s and the producers faults. The company is the one putting out the commercial WAY past the point of it being amusing.

        I hate this commercial too!! I found this page after searching to see if other people hated it as much as I do… whose stupid idea was it to make a commercial where a woman screams like that?!! Nobody wants to hear someone scream, and it’s definitely not going to make people want to buy this product.

        07/07/2011 at 4:22 pm

      This commercial and the one by Staples ARE the worst tv commercials ever…I have boycotted Staples since then and now I will simply boycott Samsung ATT products…simple…I will do my shopping elsewhere…so any companies out there who want to annoy us with your stupid ads, do it, and I will simply NOT buy your products and services.

      07/14/2011 at 3:48 pm

      Ha!  Thank you all for posting this…. my wife laughs at me cause when that commercial comes on she knows to either mute it or change the channel.  The funny thing is I hate it so much, I never even knew the product name.  if that’s what they were hoping for, it backfired for me.  The screaming is ridiculous, and I’ll never buy that product out of principle!

    HATE THE SPIDER COMMERCIAL.  THE MOST OBNOXIOUS, WOULD NOT EVEN THINK OF LOOKING AT THE PRODUCT IF THEY THINK THAT IS FUNNY, AMUSING OR REASONABLE.  JUST OBNOXIOUS AND EXTREMELY ANNOYING.

    The commercial is very jarring and annoying to me, but I also have a friend who is caring for her mother with advanced Alzheimer’s and whenever it comes on and she doesn’t get to the mute button in time, it takes her about a half hour to calm her down.

    I agree, I HATE screaming commericals, after the first time it is so annoying to hear it OVER AND OVER AND OVER.  Just like the extremely annoying Disney World commercial where the kids are going ape and screaming.  I mute it and will not consider purchasing anything that uses this type of advertising.

    I hate this commercial with deep passion. How rude to have to hear that scream. Dumb. I want to burn all my Samsung products in protest this obnoxious ad.

    06/02/2011 at 8:33 pm

    I agree with every comment.  I just googled  “people who hate the screaming spider commercial” confident I’d find plenty of hits.  HATE this commercial with a passion.  Had no idea what brand it was for, because I hurry to change the channel or mute it.  It wakes us up if we fall asleep with the TV on and then we’re really pissed!  Not to mention it’s on ALL THE TIME.  F—  OFF SAMSUNG!  HORRIBLE IDEA.  I will now make a conscious effort NOT to buy any of your products.

    I hate this commercial, too. But, more importantly, I don’t even understand it. Why does the
    guy say “Got it”? What does that mean??

    • Intentionaltalk

      06/15/2011 at 11:34 pm

      It means he got the spider on the screen of the phone.

    • Lainer1003

      07/03/2011 at 3:01 am

      Norman, are you stupid?  Take a wild guess what “Got it” means after the actor slams the spider with his shoe. Yikes are people really that dense?

      07/13/2011 at 2:44 am

      Personally, I would bitch slap the broad to shut her up and kick the shit out of the idiot smashing my phone with his shoe. Absolutely HATE this commercial, it portrays people as total idiots.

  16. MySharona

    06/07/2011 at 2:24 am

    I loathe this stupid commercial.  It insults my intelligence, offends my ears and prompts me to change the channel.  You can rest assured that I will NOT buy that stupid phone.  I am quite sick of hearing this commercial play over and over and over.  Samsung, perhaps next time ‘infuse’ some finesse and money into your advertising gimmicks – this is an epic F-A-I-L. 

  17. Kilauea22

    06/09/2011 at 1:56 am

    I agree with all of the above. I can’t turn it off fast enough. NOT FUNNY, not entertaining. I would never even look at this phone, or change to ATT

  18. Awful!!!

    06/09/2011 at 2:50 am

    Our family was watching America’s Got Talent and my father had the volume turned up when it went to a break and this awful commercial came on. It was so horrible and our neighbor’s dogs started barking outside!  JUST AWFUL!!

    I see AT&T has not learned its lesson!  Remember that previous commercial with that very high-pitched squeal from that guy in the car pool?  That was AT&T if I remember right.  These screaming commercials are awful.

    We have two samsung phones in our family.  We are trading them in for something else.  This is the worst commercial ever.  We all jump to grab the remote to turn it down whenever it comes on.  It is faster to change the channel really quick while it’s on.  I googled “I hate the samsung infuse 4G commercial.

  23. Jessica Stone

    06/13/2011 at 1:58 pm

    The commercial just came on and I googled it to see if anyone else hated it as much as I did. Looks like everyone does. If a TV show comes on and I dont like it, I dont have to watch it, but with a commercial, by the time I realize what it is, its usually too late to avoid it. The crazy B*** is already screaming for several seconds by the time I have a chance to grab the remote. It pisses me off that its essentially forced on the viewer.

    • Erika

      07/10/2011 at 1:37 am

      I hate that ignorant commercial soooooooooo much that it just makes me want to pick up a brick and throw it, hoping it would hit that nerve racking screaming woman right in the mouth and break all of her teeth out instead of my TV!!

  24. Heidi Heidbreder-Spahn

    06/15/2011 at 5:04 am

    I literally just broke my arm in an attempt to get the remote and change the channel before having to hear the shreik of that crazy b**ch! The only thing that could make this commercial tolerable is if her boyfriend hauled off and smacked her so hard across the face that she flew through the window then proceeded to scream at her for being a psycho. Hhmmmm Nope, now that I think about it that wouldn’t even help.

    06/16/2011 at 1:37 pm

    This commercial is clever, but when you hear it over and over all that
    realistic panicked screaming is downright irritating.  Samsung does not
    have the right to subject the public to this “crying wolf” commercial.

    • Johntwo

      06/19/2011 at 6:15 pm

      There is nothing at all clever about this commercial.  It is stupid on a colossal scale and rates higher on the annoying scale than any commercial I have ever seen. Just MHO.

    This commercial makes me want to ram knives into my eyeballs.  I wish that spider were real, and that it would bite that nasty ass bitch right on the tongue to shut her the hell up.

  27. Jbw1968

    06/19/2011 at 8:27 pm

     Yes This commercial is just as stupid and irritating as the Staples screaming guys commercial.  Don’t these advertisers have a clue????  I feel like dropping AT&T for this.

    • DavidRandolph

      07/13/2011 at 2:05 pm

      Yeah, they have a clue.  That’s why they do it.  I guarantee that these big companies know EXACTLY what they’re doing and actually intended for this commercial to be so ear peircingly loud. 

  28. Rleach11

    06/19/2011 at 10:11 pm

    Because of this commercial I will never buy another Samsung product, nor will I ever switch my cell coverage to AT&T. Both are big losers as far as I’m concerned. Why can’t commercials target intelligent thinking people? This one was made for morons!

    • Lainer1003

      07/03/2011 at 3:04 am

    The first time I heard this commercial I was watching American Idol and had the volume up on my television a little more than normal. When this commercial came on it sent my cats flying across my house, one jumped right up my curtains from off my lap, leaving me scratched and making my curtain rod fall down onto my side table which spilled my drink all over the side of my couch and area rug. If Samsung’s marketing goal was to get people’s attention, it certainly worked, however it brought my attention to a product that I will NEVER buy or even consider just because of this commercial. There are much better ways to come up with a humorous commercial than this, and it just seems to me like this was a failed attempt to have a “viral” commercial, which very obviously nobody finds funny at all. NEVER BUY SAMSUNG!!

    I HATE this F___ING commercial! I’m so annoyed of it being forced on me. It’s seriously the MOST ANNOYING thing I’ve ever heard! I cringe and get upset by it every time it comes on, which unfortunately seems to be often. If I’m watching a channel and this commercial comes on a second time I will not only change the channel but sometimes I just turn off the tv completely, yes, it’s that annoying that it makes me stop watching tv mid-show. There should be a law against commercials being able to have someone screaming at the top of their lungs!

      07/10/2011 at 4:31 pm

      Yea, and if your watching streaming video on CBS, they play this damn thing every 15 minutes or so and you can’t skip it!  Thankfully there’s a mute button but it makes me mad everytime I have to hurry up and mute the stupid thing before the woman starts screaming.  Unbelievable.

     thank you everyone for Disliking this commercial, I thought I was alone with my feelings on it or I was just
    out of touch, i did email the PR firm that is responsible for the media relations for Samsung and gave them
    my opinion in a nice way. I hope they respond. I did get an “out of office reply” right away, maybe that is all I will get.

The fact that the commercial is many decibels above the norm is probably what is most irritating, I personally believe we should start a email petition to ban this commercial. Anybody in??

    I just sat through this entire commercial for the first time. I usually change the channel as fast as I can when it’s on. Only reason I stayed with it just now was to see what the product was and who the manufacturer was, so I could find a board online to complain about how absolutely shitty this commercial is.

    I think this commercial is hysterical. The first time I saw it I laughed so freaking hard! I think they get their message across clearly and in a humorous way. I don’t get how anyone is offended or angered by the woman screaming unless your TVs or whatever are always really loud. The set looks beautiful, the shots are simple but effective, and the message is perfectly clear. I thought it was very well done!

      Well, it was okay the FIRST time I saw it.  But if your watching a pre-recorded broadcast of 48 hours they play that commercial every 10 minutes!!!  UGH!

      I think it’s hysterical too!  I laugh every time I see it.  I agree with everything you said.  It’s one of my favs and I will rewind it to watch it again if I see it on tv.

      Not offended, not angered. This commercial is pointless, useless, and a complete and utter annoying waste. Has to be the worst every made. Just plain dumb.

    I HATE this commercial with an unrivaled passion! It may be the most irritating commercial EVER.. She scream so loud and with no alterations in her tone so its straight fake, unbelievably annoying and way too loud overall..  I have never had to google if anyone else hated a commercial before but I have been driven to the brink!!

    Whoever made this commercial, and whoever agreed to put it on air, should be put in a room and forced to hear that scream over and over for eternity. I would make a point of not buying this product even if it was the least expensive and best on the market!!! I never blog, but just like others, I googled this, knowing I couldn’t be alone in rushing for the remote every time it comes on. The question is how much longer will it run.

    I agree with everyone who hates this commercial.  It’s awful, NOT funny, NOT clever, NOT creative – it’s probably the worst commercial on the air today.  AT&T get a grip – take it off the air.  And who the hell is the actor playing the woman?   Bet she has trouble finding work after this unless she just gets jobs making sound tracks that require shrill, piercing, ear-shattering screams.

    This commercial just came on and I dove for the remote.  It startles me every time it comes on and it needs to be removed.  No one wants to hear someone scream at the top of their lungs unless they are watching something where they expect it!  The natural reaction for most people when they hear someone scream is to sense they are in danger or peril.  Your body responds to that…and it isn’t FUNNY!

    07/08/2011 at 6:46 pm

    It’s not even that it’s so screetchingly loud.  The concept of someone actually believing a real spider was on the table instead of a cell phone is rediculous.  I know its supposed to be a joke, but it makes the actors look really stupid.  I hate this commercial with a passion.

      I’m completely with you on this 100%, basically, I hate all of these stupid, nerve racking commercials of today. The best commercials were the ones from the 60s, 70s and 80s and some of them from the early 90s, when commercials were fun to watch and had good music but nowdays, you just want to change the channel or turn off the TV period!!

    Your screaming spider commercial is probably the most assenine ignorant mean spirited commercial I have EVER seen.  And I know exactly how you guys came up with it because I’m a marketing coordinator.  Your team said ‘Hey guys, we need to get the viewers ATTENTION.  We need to make SURE no one ignores our product.  We need to make it so loud it’s actually startling!’ 

    Well guess what you morons, everyone in the f*ing country is muting this thing every time it comes on the air.  Yet again, one more reason to detest ATT.

How to Fix Bad iOS 14 Performance

Published

on

As we push away from the iOS 14 release date we’re hearing about a number of issues including a variety of performance problems impacting iPhone models.

While a lot of the feedback about iOS 14 has been great, we’ve been having a good experience across most of our devices, we’ve also been hearing about bugs and performance issues.

The current list includes UI lag, freezes, lock ups, and random reboots. These are extremely common, particularly on older iPhone models. Newer iPhones aren’t immune to them though.

Unfortunately, performance issues such as these can be tricky to fix. While you might be able to fix them on your own, some might require a fix from Apple in a new software update.

If you can’t wait and/or you don’t have time to get in touch with Apple support, we have some fixes that could help alleviate the performance issue(s) you’re seeing on your device.

Try Starz or HBO Free with Amazon Channels

Restart Your iPhone

If you start noticing UI lag or another performance issue on your iPhone, try restarting it. Power it down, leave it off for a minute, and the turn it back on.

Update Your iPhone

Apple will periodically release new iOS 14 software. Point updates (x.x.x) are usually focused on fixing bugs while milestone upgrades (x.x) usually deliver a mix of features and fixes. And while Apple might not call out performance fixes in an update’s change log, new software always has the potential to help (or hurt) your iPhone’s overall performance.

For more on the latest version of iOS 14, take a look at our guide.

Update Your Apps

If you haven’t done so already, try updating your applications to the latest version.

App developers are currently rolling out iOS 14 support updates and they could help stabilize iOS 14’s performance on your device.

Before you install the latest version be sure to go into the App Store and read reviews from other iOS 14 users. If the reviews are mostly good, you’ll want to download the latest version.

Reset Your Settings

If you’re still not getting the kind of performance you would like, try resetting your iPhone’s settings. Here’s how to do that on iOS 14:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap Reset.
  • Tap Reset All Settings.
  • Enter your passcode if you have one enabled.

This will restore your iPhone’s settings to their factory defaults so be sure you have your Wi-Fi passwords handy. You’ll need to re-enter them.

Cleanup Your Storage

If you’ve had your iPhone for several years there’s a very chance you’ve got a lot of clutter taking up space on its internal storage. Deleting this clutter could help speed up your iPhone.

To start, you’ll want to check and see how much space is free on your device. Here’s how to do that:

  • Head into Settings.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap Storage & iCloud Usage.
  • Select Manage Storage.

If you’re getting close to the threshold you’ll want to head back into General and scroll to where it says iPhone Storage. Here you’ll get a detailed rundown of your data.

Apple will make some recommendations based on your utilization of your storage, but you can also just go through each section manually and delete files you don’t need.

Stop Automatic Downloads

iOS’ automatic update feature can be useful, but a constant stream of updates will make your iPhone work in the background.

If you’re alright with manually updating your applications on the App Store, try disabling Automatic Downloads on your iPhone and see if performance improves a bit.

To do this you’ll head into Settings. From there, Tap iTunes & App Store. From there you’ll want to toggle Updates, located in the Automatic Downloads section, off. You might want to toggle the other options off as well.

Disable Widgets

iOS 14 brought some big time upgrades to iOS’ Widgets. That being said, if you don’t use Widgets on your iPhone, try disabling some or all of them to see if that helps.

To do that you’ll want to swipe to the right while you’re on your iPhone’s home screen. After that, you have two options. You can:

  1. Hard press on an individual Widget
  2. Scroll all the way to bottom of the screen and select Edit. This will cause them to start wiggling.

If you hard press on a Widget, a small menu will popup. To remove a widget you’ll want to tap on Remove Widget at the top.

If you selected Edit at the bottom, you can tap the minus sign on a wiggling Widget to remove it. You can also scroll down to the bottom and select Customize. This will allow you to quickly add or subtract Widgets.

We recommend disabling Widgets you don’t use. Remember, you can always turn them back on if you don’t notice a bump in performance.

Clear Browser Cookies & Data

Clearing your browser’s cookies and data will free up memory which could have a positive impact on your phone’s performance.

If you use Apple’s Safari browser go into the Settings app, tap Safari, and scroll down to where it says Clear History and Website Data. Tap on it.

Tapping this will remove your browsing history, cookies, and other data from Safari. History will also be cleared from any devices signed into your iCloud account. If you’re fine with that, tap Clear History and Data again.

If you use Google Chrome, you’ll want to head into the app and tap the three horizontal circles in the bottom right corner. They’re in the top right corner if you haven’t updated to Chrome’s new design.

Once there, tap Settings, tap Privacy, and now tap Clear Browsing Data. You can now select what you wish to delete. If you’re noticing heavy lag, you might want to clear everything.

Stop Using Background Refresh

iOS 14’s Background App Refresh refreshes apps in the background to show you the latest data when you open them up. It also makes your phone work in the background so if you don’t need this, you might want to shut it off.

Here’s how you disable it:

  • Go into the Settings app.
  • Tap General.
  • Tap Background App Refresh.
  • At the top tap Background App Refresh and toggle it off.

If you want to keep it on for some apps, leave it on and then go down your list of apps and manually turn it off for apps you don’t use.

Downgrade

If you were having a good experience on the previous version of iOS, you could try downgrading your iPhone’s software. If you don’t know how to downgrade, have a look at our walkthrough. It’ll guide you through the steps you need to take.

Restore

If you can’t find a fix for your issue, and you want to avoid taking your phone into a store, you might want to restore your device. This should only be used as a last resort.

You can do this via Finder, iTunes, or iCloud.

4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 14 & 11 Reasons You Should

Install iOS 14 for Better Security

Install iOS 14 for Better Security

If security is important to you, think about installing the iOS 14 update right away.

iOS 14 brings 11 new security patches to your iPhone. If you're interested in the exact nature of these improvements, you can read about them over on Apple's website.

If you skipped iOS 13.7 or any older versions of iOS 13, you'll get the security patches from those updates with your iOS 14 update. 

In addition to those patches, iOS 14 comes with some security and privacy upgrades including improvements to Home/HomeKit and Safari. 

For instance in Safari, you can now tap the Privacy Report button to better understand how websites handle your privacy.

With iOS 14 on board you can now get information on the App Store that will help you understand the privacy practices of apps before you download them. 

There is also a new recording indicator that will appear at the top of your screen whenever an app is using your microphone or camera. You can see if an app has used them recently in Control Center.

8 Things to Know About the iPhone 6s iOS 14 Update

Published

on

The iOS 14 update is out of beta testing which means iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users around the world can now download Apple’s new operating system.

Apple’s decision to push iOS 14 to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus came as a bit of a surprise given their age. They were released all the way back in 2015.

The company’s decision means iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users now have another full year of software support to look forward to. That might convince some people to skip the iPhone 12 and hold onto their aging phone for another year or more.

The iPhone 6s’ iOS 14 update is a big one. The new operating system comes with a long list of changes including new features, under-the-hood improvements, and security patches.

Many users have already made the jump to iOS 14 which means we’re starting to get feedback about the software’s performance. So far, a lot of it is good, but we’ve also heard about various bugs and performance issues.

Try Starz or HBO Free with Amazon Channels

If you decide to install iOS 14 on your iPhone, note that it requires a ton of free space on your internal storage. It’s a 2GB+ download.

If you’re running an older version of iOS on your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, your iOS 14 upgrade could be larger because the features and fixes from iOS updates you skipped are baked in.

With that in mind, we want to take you through the most important things to know, right now, about the iPhone 6s’ iOS 14 update.

Our walkthrough will take you through the software’s initial problems, the downgrade status, the iOS 14 jailbreak, and the iPhone 6 iOS 14 update’s performance.

We’ll start with the software’s performance. We’ve been testing iOS 14 on the iPhone 6s update for a short time and here’s what we’ve learned.

iPhone 6s iOS 14 Impressions & Performance

We recently installed the iOS 14 update on an iPhone 6s that was previous running iOS 13.7. The download and installation took quite awhile, more than 20 minutes, so that’s what you should expect if you decide to install it this week.

So far, the software’s performance has been excellent. iOS 14 feels faster than iOS 13. Animations and transitions are snappy and apps open up quickly.

While the user interface would sometimes lag on iOS 13, that hasn’t been the case on iOS 14. We haven’t noticed any lag in problem areas like Control Center, Notification Center, or the keyboard.

We’ve only been using the software for a short time, but battery life is stable. We haven’t seen any abnormal battery drain and that’s a good sign right out of the gates.

Our core applications, which include Slack, Asana, Spotify, Chrome, and Gmail, are all stable. The Netflix crashed once while trying to watch a show, but we’re not going to pin it on iOS 14 just yet.

Developers are rolling out iOS 14 support updates so if you’re having issues with one of your apps, make sure you’re running the latest version.

As of right now, iOS 14 is running smoothly on our phone. We haven’t run into any game-changing performance issues and we’ll let you know if that changes in the days ahead.

Right now we’re recommending iOS 14 to most iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users. If you’re feeling leery, have a look at our reasons to, and not to, install iOS 14 right now.

You Should Prepare for iOS 14

If you plan to install iOS 14 in the near future, make sure you prepare yourself, and the device, for the move.

While some of you might see a performance boost after moving up from iOS 13, others will run into trouble. This is why it’s important to prepare.

If you don’t know where to start, we’ve released a pre-installation guide that will take you step-by-step through the process we typically use before we install new iOS software on our iPhones. If you’re new to the iPhone and iOS, or you just want to play it safe, it could help.

At the very least you’ll want to make sure all of your data is backed up before you move your phone to the new operating system.

iPhone 6s iOS 14 Problems

We haven’t run into any major issues during our time on iOS 14, but many users have.

The current list of iOS 14 problems includes abnormal battery drain, UI lag, issues with first and third-party apps, Touch ID issues, touchscreen problems, Exchange issues, Wi-Fi issues, Bluetooth problems, and more.

This is only the beginning. You can expect the list to grow as more iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users upgrade to the new firmware.

If you’re nervous about the current state of iOS 14 problems, you might want to hang back and wait for Apple’s next batch of bug fixes. They should arrive soon.

How to Fix iPhone 6s iOS 14 Problems

If you run into an issue on iOS 14 you might be able to fix the problem(s) on your own.

If you don’t know where to start, our list of fixes for the most common iOS 14 problems is a great place to start.

If you’re noticing horrendous battery life after the move to iOS 14, our tips should help you improve battery life going forward. And if you’re experiencing bad performance (lag, slow download speeds, etc), take a look at our guide to fixing bad iOS performance.

iOS 13 Downgrade Open

If you move your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus to iOS 14, and you run into bugs or performance issues, you could try moving back to iOS 13.

Apple is currently signing on iOS 13.7 which means you can drop your iPhone’s software back in an attempt to improve its performance.

The company won’t sign on iOS 13 forever so if you really want to get your phone off of iOS 14, you’ll need to drop back soon. Once Apple stops signing on iOS 13.7, there won’t be a way back to the previous operating system.

If you’re unfamiliar with the downgrade process, take a look at our guide.

iPhone 6s iOS 14 Update: What’s New

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus get a pretty stacked version of iOS 14. While the devices do miss out on a few features, the key features are all there.

Some of the highlights include Widgets on the home screen, improvements to Messages and Maps, the new Translate app, and a laundry list of changes to Siri.

We’ve put together a guide that will take you through some of iOS 14’s best features and it’s worth a look if you haven’t dug into the new operating system yet.

If you’re moving up from an older version of iOS 13 you’ll, again, get the features and fixes from the updates you skipped. We also have a guide that goes over the latest iOS 13 features and you should check it out if you’re running old software.

What’s Next for the iPhone 6s & iPhone 6s Plus

If your device is struggling on iOS 14, or you’re leery about upgrading, you won’t have to wait long for Apple’s first batch of bug fixes.

Apple recently told CNET that it is “aware of an issue that can impact default email and browser settings in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 and that a “fix will be available to users in a software update.” It didn’t call a version out by name.

The company recently confirmed an iOS 14.2 update and there’s also been chatter about an iOS 14.1 release alongside the iPhone 12 series in October. We could also see a fast iOS 14.0.1 release.

One way or another, we should see a new version of iOS 14 roll out soon and that’s great news for those of you looking to squash bugs or performance issues.

iPhone 6s iOS 14 Jailbreak

Developers have released an iOS 13 jailbreak tool that’s compatible with iOS 13.5 and older versions of iOS 13. However, we haven’t seen anything for iOS 14.

Earlier this year the developers behind the “unc0ver” jailbreaking tool released version 5.0.0. It’s compatible with iOS 13.5 and most versions of iOS that fall between iOS 13.5 and iOS 11.0.

It doesn’t work with iOS 12.3-12.3.2, iOS 12.4.2-12.4.5, or iOS 13.7-iOS 13.5.1. It doesn’t work with the current version of iOS 14 either.

We don’t know when or even if we’ll see a public iOS 14 jailbreak tool so keep your eyes peeled for new information as we push deeper into the month.

4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 14 & 11 Reasons You Should

Install iOS 14 for Better Security

Install iOS 14 for Better Security

If security is important to you, think about installing the iOS 14 update right away.

iOS 14 brings 11 new security patches to your iPhone. If you're interested in the exact nature of these improvements, you can read about them over on Apple's website.

If you skipped iOS 13.7 or any older versions of iOS 13, you'll get the security patches from those updates with your iOS 14 update. 

In addition to those patches, iOS 14 comes with some security and privacy upgrades including improvements to Home/HomeKit and Safari. 

For instance in Safari, you can now tap the Privacy Report button to better understand how websites handle your privacy.

With iOS 14 on board you can now get information on the App Store that will help you understand the privacy practices of apps before you download them. 

There is also a new recording indicator that will appear at the top of your screen whenever an app is using your microphone or camera. You can see if an app has used them recently in Control Center.

5 Xbox Series X Pre-Order Tips & Tricks

Published

on

Do you want to make sure that you get an Xbox Series X pre-order? Or the Xbox Series S? We have a collection of tips that will help you avoid pre-order problems and increase the chances that you get a new console on release day.

The Xbox Series S is $299 and the Xbox Series X is $499. Pre-orders start at 11 AM Eastern, 8 AM Pacific on September 22nd.

Read: Get the Best Gaming Chair You Can Buy

Check Account Passwords Now

When the Xbox Series X pre-orders start you need to be ready to go. This is not the time to be resetting a Best Buy or Walmart password or creating an account.

Spend 10 minutes this weekend making sure that you can log in to Microsoft, GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

This can mean the difference between getting a new Xbox on day one and waiting months.

Update Payment Information

While you are logged in make sure that your credit card is up to date and that shipping and billing information is updated.

The time that you spend updating any of this, could be long enough to miss out on getting the Xbox Series X or Series S in November.

Be Ready to Checkout

Now that you can log in and your credit card is up to date, you need to be prepared to checkout as soon as the console is in your cart.

Some links to Amazon may even put the Xbox Series X directly into your cart.

Don’t wonder about tax, warranties, or look for coupon codes. Check out and get a confirmation. The console can disappear from your cart. This is not like a ticket checkout process where you are holding an item for a few minutes.

Use Websites Not Apps

Websites tend to offer a better chance to get a console this year. The PS5 pre-orders worked best on websites, with some apps just showing the landing pages while other people were ordering.

It’s a good idea to have apps available as a backup, but start on the website and be on the lookout for links directly to the products on social media.

You Can Always Cancel Later

If you really want the Xbox Series S, but it is out of stock, you may want to lock in the Xbox Series X pre-order and then decide later.

You can cancel your pre-order pretty easily at most retailers if you find the version that you really want somewhere else.

It is best to lock in pre-order and fine-tune it later.

on

While it would be great if Cyberpunk 2077 ran beautifully on every single PC, that obviously won’t be the case. CD Projekt Red has finally shared the game’s PC requirements and we want to go over the most important details and show you how to check if your computer meets the threshold.

A lot of companies wait until just before a game’s released to unveil the PC requirements. CD Projekt Red isn’t your typical company though.

The Cyberpunk 2077 release date doesn’t land until November, but the company has already released the game’s minimum and recommended PC requirements. This is great news if you’ve been thinking about putting in a pre-order.

If you plan to buy the game for a console, you have nothing to worry about. Open up the game, install it and you’re good to go. Cyberpunk 2077 for PC is a different beast because your PC needs to meet certain hardware specifications.

Today we want to share three important details regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements. If you’ve been thinking about buying the game for PC, here’s what you need to know before you pick up the game for yourself or someone else.

Will Cyberpunk 2077 Run On My PC?

You can use a simple tool to quickly find out if your computer is capable of running Cyberpunk 2077.

Sites like Can You Run It and PCGameBenchmark provide a quick and easy way to determine if your PC meets the minimum and/or recommended specs.

Some of you might need to upgrade your video card. Many others will meet the thresholds with ease. If you’re unfamiliar with your CPUs internal specifications, or you don’t consider yourself an expert, these tools will save you sometime.

What If My PC Doesn’t Meet Cyberpunk 2077 Specs?

We can’t tell you exactly will happen if your PC fails to meet the minimum requirements, but you can count on horrible performance that will, in a lot of cases, make the game unplayable.

If you want to have the best possible experience on PC, you’ll want to make sure your computer meets the recommended specifications.

While Cyberpunk 2077 will work on PC’s that barely meet the minimum requirements, you probably won’t be able to run the game on the highest settings.

If you barely meet the threshold, be on the look out for deals on PC equipment as we approach the game’s release date.

6 Reasons to Pre-Order Cyberpunk 2077 & 4 Reasons to Wait

Published

on

Cyberpunk 2077 is almost here. We have an official release date and retailers are taking pre-orders. While some of you might want to buy a copy right now, many others are better off waiting.

It took awhile, Cyberpunk 2077 was originally confirmed all the way back in 2012, but we’re finally inching closer to the game’s release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.

If you’re just catching wind of it, the game is a sequel to Mike Pondsmith’s pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020. Cyberpunk 2020 was released all the way back in 1988.

CD Projekt Red’s taking its time, but fans of Cyberpunk and The Witcher series are hoping the developer can recreate the magic it delivered back in 2015 with The Witcher 3.

The developer initially confirmed the release date for April 16th, but decided to push it to September 17th to add some additional polish.

Unfortunately, the game got delayed again and the new Cyberpunk 2077 release date is now set for November 19th. Fortunately, it sounds like this is the final delay. CD Projekt Red says it doesn’t expect to push the game’s release date any further than November.

If you’re looking to buy Cyberpunk 2077 for Google Stadia, it looks like the release date might come a little later. CD Projekt Red says the game will debut on Google’s platform “by the end of the year.”

Get the Best Gaming Chair You Can Buy

Retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, and GameStop are taking pre-orders for two versions of the game. There is the standard $60 version and there’s also an expensive Collector’s Edition that comes with a bunch of extras.

Now that we know more about the direction the game is taking, some of you, particularly those of you who are fond of CD Projekt Red’s games, might be thinking about pre-ordering a copy.

In this guide we’re going to take you through the best reasons to pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 right now. We’ll also take you through some reasons to think about holding off for a few more weeks or longer.
