Need to stream Apple’s live event on a Windows machine? Like last time, Apple’s iPad/Mac Oct. 16 press event won’t be streaming on Windows and this time around requires Safari on a Mac, iOS device or an Apple TV. That means that Windows users will have to figure how to get the stream going using the workaround we posted last time.

You’ll need to download VLC player and check back here tomorrow for the final streaming link to complete the instructions:

Apple TV channel for today’s iPad and iMac event live stream is now available



Apple previously announced that it would be live streaming Thursday’s iPad and Mac event, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the company is pushing out an Apple TV channel to stream the video. It is a bit surprising, however, that the channel is already available at midnight Pacific time. It’s usually much later in the day that it appears.

iPhone LTE Speed Test: iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 5s [Video]



Apple claims the iPhone 6 has 'Faster LTE': "With faster LTE — up to 150 Mbps — iPhone 6 users can experience faster download and upload speeds for browsing the web, streaming music, making video calls, and more." During the iPhone 6 keynote, Apple SVP Phil Schiller revealed that these speeds are possible through a technology called carrier aggregation. The new iPhone 6 uses Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE Category 4 modem chip which offers up to 150 Mbps downlink data rates and 50 Mbps uplink data rates. Let's take a look if this is actually any faster than the previous iPhone 5S.

iClarified did a quick test. They have found the spot with the absolute best reception possible. Testing was done late at night, when network usage is lower. The speeds are actually amazing.

iPhone 6 showed 100 Mbps download speed and 35 Mbps upload, while iPhone 5S - 35 Mbps and 15 Mbps respectively.  Impressive, isn't it.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Are Not as Bendable as It Was Believed [Video]



According to the latest report from a research firm called Consumer Reports, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus is not as bendable as it was believed. It took 90 pounds of force to bend the recently-released 5.5-inch iPhone and about 70 pounds of force to deform its 4.7-inch sibling. The larger handset is actually stronger, which is a bit of surprise for me.

Microsoft Releases Two New Siri vs. Cortana Ads [Video]



Microsoft has recently released two new ads mocking Apple's virtual assistant called Siri. The first is called Lost and describes the ability of Microsoft's virtual assistant to warn users about coming late to important meetings, parties etc. using recent traffic data.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Fail Drop Tests



Immediately after the start of sales of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in several countries, first drop and crash tests began to appear on the Internet. The bad news is that both handsets are not doing well in these ultimate durability tests. While they somehow manage to remain intact when dropped on the side and back, they have no chances when dropped on the face. The smaller iPhone seems to demonstrate slightly better results, but in general, both handsets can’t be called the strongest devices on the market. Take a look at the video and you will understand what I mean.
