When you are a company as big as Apple, you will be sued for every little thing possible. In China recently, the company was sued for infringing the design patent of a company that barely existed which even led a court to order the Cupertino company to stop selling the iPhone 6 in Shanghai.
This time around, Samuel Lit from Pennsylvania is suing Apple for using web carousels on its website.
Apple makes heavy use of carousel on its website, with the carousel on its homepage cycling through all its major products: iPhone 6s, iPad Pro, Apple Watch, and MacBook.
Lit claims that the carousels used by Apple are altogether infringing the around 20 claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,793,330. The patent describes a “system and method for displaying graphics, art, text, animation, video and other content.”
Lit is seeking “reasonable” royalties with interest from Apple. The experienced radio broadcaster previously served as the President of Hy Lit Radio Technologies. This is not the first time that Lit has tried to make some money off his patent. He previously had a website YourDisplayCarousel which he shuttered in December.
Chances are, Lit’s lawsuit against Apple will end with him on the losing side. What do you think?
Boxing legend Muhammad Ali died Friday evening at a Phoenix hospital, according to a press release from family spokesperson Bob Gunnell. He was 74 years old. The release did not specify the cause of death. Ali was hospitalized yesterday with a respiratory issue, and his family released a short statement earlier this afternoon, acknowledging the hospitalization and stating that his condition at the time was “fair.”
Born Cassius Clay on Jan. 17, 1942, Ali was the first man to win the heavyweight world championship three times. He was banned for three years in the late 1960s for refusing to enter the armed forces, but he returned to the sport and won the Rumble in the Jungle and the Thrilla in Manila. Considered one of the greatest boxers of all time, Ali ended up as famous for his anti-war speeches and anti-establishment politics as as for his boxing achievements.
This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
If you’re a regular iMessage user, you know that the Messages app shows an indicator if the person on the other end is currently typing. If you’re like me, you probably eagerly wait for the person to finish typing so that you can read the message right away.
If you find the idea of making your friends experience the same anxiety, then you can play this funny prank on them, where you send an animated gif of the typing indicator, fooling them into believing that you’re actually typing a message.
Here’s how you do it:
Save this image to your Camera Roll by long tapping on it and pressing “Save Image.”Note:There seems to be some issue saving the image when you visit the site as a Home screen web app, so if you’ve problems saving the image visitthis linkusing Safari and save the image.
Open the iMessage compose window, tap the camera icon and select the image you just saved
Enter the names, numbers or iMessage IDs of the people you want to send this message to, and hit send.
Here’s a video to show you how it works:
This trick would work perfectly when you’re already in the middle of a conversation, but even if you send the image otherwise, it might confuse the receiver for a few seconds.
Reader inu has a much better way (pure evil) to grab someone’s attention. He says before sending the image file, send this message “I have something very important to tell you.”
Since 2 years ago, Selfie is becoming the trendiest kind of photo, or the ideal photo position that you should take to get a lot of likes on Facebook and therefore get more exposure online. However, lightening is considered to be the crucial factor to make a successful selfie. Basically, Apple consider the iPhone screen light as the flash for older iPhone versions than iPhone 6s.
Apple has added a front camera flash on iPhone 6s to remedy this “Thing that I consider as a flaw“. So, this simple tutorial is aimed for people with any iPhone version older than iPhone 6s. This is a simple step-by-step tutorial to download the right iPhone app to activate the iPhone 6s front camera flash and also how to use it to get the perfect lightening for your next selfies.

HOW TO GET THE IPHONE 6S FRONT CAMERA FLASH ON ANY IPHONE (WITHOUT JAILBREAK)
First, Go to the App Store and look for “Take Selfies FREE” then select the app with the blue camera with flash at the top-right created by Wanaka Mobile LLC. This is a link to the app, I tested it on iPhone 5 and it worked perfectly.
After downloading the “iPhone 6s front camera flash”, open it up. You should see a selfie camera with the same flash icon in the iPhone 6s, tap on it and Make sure you look the best you can before the 3 seconds timer is cutdown.
After you triggered the timer, note that the brightness of your light depends on your display settings. Make sure you set your brightness to the max in order to get the best performance of its flash.

Well, transferring your photos from iPhone to iPad is an easy process that anyone with no technical knowledge can do it but there are more than one way to process it. In this article, I’ll show you 3 ways to send photos from iPhone to iPad. After that, you should decide on the option that you find easy depending on your preferences or your needs.
METHOD 1 : HOW TO SEND PHOTOS FROM IPHONE TO IPAD USING ICLOUD PHOTO LIBRARY
All iPhone users know about iCloud but almost people think it is just a way to lock your iPhone from distance if it is stolen.
iCloud is more than that, it is a solution where you can store your configuration, your contacts, your photos and more and also it is a solution to help you send photos to your iCloud account and show them on any device signing in to this account.
Here are the steps to send photos from iPhone to iPad using iCloud Photo Library:
Open iCloud settings, Tap on Photos then activate iCloud Photo Library.
After that, any photo you take on your iPhone will be transferred to your iCloud in the next minutes and also the photos stored on your iPhone before.
Just after the process finished, you should log in to your iPad with your iCloud account.
Then go to the Photo app, choose all photos.
It will load for a few minutes for the first time to download the photos.
You can show all of your iPhone photos on iPad.
This method works on iDevices with iOS 8.1 or later.
You should activate the Wi-Fi to allow your photos be transferred to your iCloud account.
METHOD 2 : HOW TO SEND PHOTOS FROM IPHONE TO IPAD USING AIRDROP
As you see in the latest post on how to hook up your iPhone to your TV, AirDrophas many features as streaming, file sharing and photo sharing between iDevices.
If you just want to transfer one photo and not a collection, this is the easy way to do it and it can be processed in few seconds.
Here are the right steps to process to send photos from iPhone to iPad using AirDrop:
Ensure you have both iPhone and iPad with iOS 7 or later, iPhone 5or newer and iPad 4or newer.
Open the control center by swiping up from the bottom of screen.
Activate AirDrop on both devices
Open the photo you want to share, and tap on the share button
Select additional photos and tap next.
Choose your iPad device on the next screen.
Accept the transfer on your iPad.
Re-Notice : Ensure you have both iPhone and iPad with iOS 7 or later, iPhone 5 or newer and iPad 4 or newer.
METHOD 3 : SEND PHOTOS FROM IPHONE TO IPAD USING EMAIL
This is the classic method and probably you know about it and you’ve done it at least once. This is the easy method without any technical jargon while almost all the world knows about the word “EMAIL”.
To send photos from iPhone to iPad, here are the simple steps:
Open the Photos app.
Select the photo you want to share
Tap the ‘Share’ button.
Select additional photos.
Choose the Mail option
Enter your Email as a recipient.
Send the mail.
You just should access to your Email account which you chose as a recipient and open the mail then download the photos.
These are more ways to send photos from iPhone to iPad like using Photo streams but this method is for older iDevices models.
The methods I showed you in the article are the best and the simple method to do that without syncing itunes which I consider the hardest method and it takes a lot of times.
Just keep in mind that the iCloud Photo Library should ask you to keep the resolution as it is or to lower it if you run out of storage space.
Share with me the method you use to send photos from iPhone to iPad and why you choose it?
Some Biggers asked me about a way to save whatsapp audio from an iPhone to an external drive or a computer. Whatever it is, there are many extract apps to export whatsapp medias but today I'll show you a simple method that you can use to export medias without even touching your iPhone. After looking on the web for a simple solution involving no apps or tweak (Quora, Yahoo answers, forums, blogs) and no one talked about this one that I discovered myself and I'm supposed to be the first one to write about that. Wonder what it is? Even a baby can guess it :) Don't worry if you didn't guess... I'll show you step-by-step how to save audio from whatsapp on iPhone to your computer or to an external drive.
How to Save Audio from Whatsapp on iPhone to Your Computer
Step 1 : Go to Whatsapp web.
You probably know about Whatsapp web, it's a web application of whatsapp that you can use once at home or if you iPhone is not fully charged. To use this feature, go to web.whatsapp.com
Step 2 : Connect your iPhone to Whatsapp web.
Here's steps to sync your Whatsapp account on iPhone to your Whatsapp web:
In your iPhone, Turn on Wifi or Cellular data.
Go to Whatsapp > Settings > Whatsapp for web
Scan the QR CODE on the Whatsapp web screen with your iPhone camera.
Now, your account should be sync.
Step 3 : Export your Whatsapp medias
Exporting your photos should be the very easy thing to do, you should just locate your photos then right click and "Save as" to your computer. It's not the same for audio & video files, there is no option to save these type of files but I have a quick fix for that. I recorded this video to guide you through the source code and get audio link then save them to your computer.
What do you think about this way to save audio files from whatsapp to your computer?

Days ago, Facebook released a new feature on its social network that they called "Facebook Reactions". In this post, I show you how to use Facebook Reactions on iOS, I talk about the "Facebook Reactions" feature and its impact.
Since 2011, Facebook users didn't stop asking Facebook for a dislike button and now Facebook answers with a more better feature having more than the dislike button.
Beside the famous "Like" button, you can find also a "Love", "Haha", "Sad", "Wow", "Angry" by which you can express your reactions to a post, photo or a video. This is a great feature that no other social network did before.
My opinion : I find that the "Facebook Reactions" name doesn't suit the icons, and I better call them "Facebook Feelings". In my opinions, this is a great feature while it'll change the way how people reacts to the posts on Facebook and more than that, the pages' owners will have more insights about their posts and how they can improve them to make the "Buzz".
How to Use Facebook Reactions on iOS?
While "Morethanbig" talks about iOS, I'll show only the way how you can use the Reactions icons on iOS.
Facebook made it as easy as the like button unless a little difference between how you can "Like" a post and How you can "Wow", "Haha", "Sad", "Angry", "Love" it.
What you find first is the Like button then you should use a little "Holding" on your screen to "pop" the other Facebook Reactions icons.
Here's exactly how you can use Facebook reactions button:
Hold the "like" button.
It'll show you 5 Facebook Reactions icons.
Keep holding then move your finger to any of these icons then let down.
I hope you enjoy this post.
What are your thoughts about the new "Facebook Reactions" Feature?
