It’s just about time when friends and family look forward to have a great time over some grilled Barbecue. A Reddit user 100uf posted pictures of a DIY project that he did .
One prime reason we advice our readers to not go for something like this is as cool as it may look in pictures, cooking on aluminium coated with various chemicals that weren’t meant to be a part of a cooking device only means that one does not know how harmful the process is and what chemicals entire the food that is being cooked.
The Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, Apple’s October 22 event has officially been confirmed today after Apple sent out invitations for the event which will almost certainly show off Apple’s new iPad line up in all of its glory, maybe with a little bit extra.
Apple’s only words are “We still have a lot to cover.” Two iPads aren’t a lot, so are we in for a surprise? Apple is almost certainly going to announce the new iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2, both of which will come in Silver, Gold and Space Gray and will likely feature TouchID fingerprint sensors. Will Apple announce the dates on which their new MacBook Pros, Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks are set to roll out to the world? Will rumours of an iTV, iWatch, iConsole, larger iPad and more be squashed or proven correct?
Stay tuned as Amzer will most certainly be keeping an eye on the event and bringing you all of the news as it happens!
What likes to spend a ridiculous amount of money on turning the works of fiction into reality? That’s right, the US Army is. Apparently the US Army has commissioned the creation of an ‘Iron Man’ like body armour that will enhance soldiers’ capabilities.
The US Army has let it be known that they are looking into creating the real-life equivalent of an Iron Man suit, nicknamed T.A.L.O.S. after Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or the Bronze giant guy from Greek mythology that protected Europa in Crete from being invaded or destroyed. The suit’s goal will be to protect its wearer from a hail of gunfire, provide night vision, enhance their physical strength as well as support life within the suit through a built-in computer. So, basically an Iron Man suit with an iPhone dock.
It sounds pretty cool, but we are likely to see something similar to the first movie’s Warmachine, before it gets chunked down into size, to form Iron Patriot? Guess The Avengers 2 just got some free publicity!
Apple is expected to launch some exciting new products on October 22 according to a report by AllThingsD, coincidentally it will be the same day Microsoft’s new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 goes on sale as well as the day Nokia is expected to launch their new tablet line up.
According to AllThingsD, Apple will be holding an invitation-only event on October 22 to showcase some new products. These new products may include, but not be limited to the Apple iPad 5 which is set to feature a drastic redesign as well as the addition of a TouchID sensor, an iPad Mini 2 which may feature a Retina display as well as a TouchID sensor and a champagne coloured offering, new MacBook Air notebooks with Retina displays and the new OS X Mavericks update, a possible new Mac Pro, a possible Apple iOS-powered console and an Apple iTV. Apple’s iWatch is only expected to hit in early 2014.
If rumours are correct, Apple is set to dazzle, and be quite the thorn in Microsoft’s back, for whom the day would be much more important as Windows powered tablets come of age, and likely fail.
So, you’ve just been assigned to the President’s security detail, but due to budget cuts, they gave you an iPhone 5c instead of its fingerprint touting big brother. Can your iPhone 5c replace your bulletproof vest? Some crazies tried to find out precisely that.
The guys over at RatedRR had a look at just how durable Apple’s new plastic iPhone 5c is, and it really isn’t pretty. The iPhone 5c hit the dirt, and walked away fine, then it hit the concrete, which cracked it (ever heard of Amzer ShatterProof anyone?), then it walked away from a light splash. Sadly, the iPhone 5c did not survive getting hit buy a .50 caliber rifle bullet, which completely and utterly destroyed the colourful little bugger.
What’s the worst damage your smartphone has ever survived? Did you know that Amzer ShatterProof is ultra strong and durable and our wide array of different cases keep your phone warm and snuggly. Check it out!
Just two weeks after officially going on sale, the iPhone 5c has seen a $50 price cut, albeit this weekend only, and exclusive to Best Buy stores.
Best Buy is offering a $50 gift card to iPhone 5c buyers this weekend, ending on Monday. Said gift card can be redeemed as a cash refund on the purchase, making your brand new iPhone 5c just $50, upon signing a two year contract, and of course when opting for the 16GB model. Best Buy is offering all five colors and both storage options, but purchases will have to be in store. If you want a little bit of extra space, then the 32GB model will be $100 extra, which is still a great deal nonetheless.
Rumours have also started spreading today that Samsung is interested in acquiring a stake in Best Buy in order to expand their US retail space, which could likely give them a larger share of the US market.
One of the biggest drawbacks that most smartphones have nowadays is they take ages to charge, despite running out of juice in what feels like second. Fujitsu’s new Arrows A 301F was launched in Japan today by SoftBank and although it packs a lot of great features, there is one that stands out much more; the fact that it can get a day’s worth of battery life from a simple ten minute charge.
The Fujitsu Arrows A 301F is highly unlikely to get launched anywhere outside of Asia, unless you import one, but it is great to know that someone is tackling the issues we actually care about. The Arrows A 301F packs a 5-inch FHD display, a 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 13MP rear facing camera, a 2,600mAh battery and of course a fingerprint sensor. Its specialized AC charging cable allows it to charge up within 10 minutes to give you a full day’s worth of usage, which sure beats what its competitors are offering.
If you’re still wondering why this device is important? Well, earlier this year Fujitsu announced that they would be expanding into the European market, and more than likely the US market if Europe pays off. Want a fast charging smartphone with a faster processor, and more memory than what most modern tablets feature? You may get a chance to get your hands on one very soon.

Apple has always had a reputation for releasing updates to fix serious bugs as quickly as they possibly can. Just a week after it came to light that there was a lockscreen vulnerability that allowed trespassers to gain access to anyone’s email and social networking accounts without typing in the user’s passcode.
The new iOS 7.0.2 update was released today and should arrive on devices across the globe in a timely manner and will provide a fix for the serious security vulnerability in the form of the lockscreen bybass bug, something common to large software updates from Cupertino. The new iOS 7.0.2 update also brings back the Greek keyboard for passcodes, making it so much easier to keep your device, and your personal data, safe and out of the hands of those that wish to cause havoc. Apple did not make a full list of new additions and fixes, but they are likely to have addressed certain concerns, although battery drain seems to be an ongoing glitch in the system.
Meanwhile, Apple’s iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 are expected to shake up the tablet market once again, especially the radically redesigned Apple iPad 5.
A new application, iMessage Chat, has hit the Google Play store allowing users to make use of Apple’s iMessage chat service despite having an non-Apple, Android-powered device. Of course the application is a safety risk and not in any way affiliated with Apple or made by them.
The application comes from developer/hacker called Jay Freeman, or Suarik, and allows Android device users to make use of Apple’s iMessage instant messaging service by fooling Apple’s servers into thinking that the devices are Mac Minis instead of the malware that it is. It is successful, but routes user’s data through a server in China, making use of their Apple IDs, and of course billing information. So, Android users are free to download and use the service, although Apple is sure to somehow block it in the near future, making it unuseable and making sure that all your private data is stored on some server in China, just waiting to be abused.
If you are so keen on using iMessage, why not just buy an iDevice then? The Apple TV isn’t too expensive, nor is the Apple iPod Touch, especially secondhand models…
