For years, gadget-makers have been hailing wireless charging. But there’s a dirty little secret: it’s not really wireless.

Need to delete a contact from the iPhone? Maybe you want to delete all contacts from everywhere, including the iPhone, iCloud, OS X, iPad, and everywhere else, so that you can start anew with a blank address book?

Chinese hackers have launched a pirated app store that allows people to download pirated iOS apps with no jailbreaks needed.

Back in 2008, Jason Koger had the misfortune of running over a downed power line on his four-wheeler, being shocked with 7,200 volts of electricity, and ultimately having both his hands amputated. Now, he’s had the good luck to get a pair of new ones that can be controlled by an iPhone app.
