iPhone + Antarctica = A photographer’s match made in heaven ❤️📷

The environment may not be the best for vacations, but Antarctica is proved to be a iPhone’s picture-taking paradise.

When photographer John Bozinov first learned that he would be spending two months in Antarctica on the Antarctic Peninsula at the end of 2016, he knew it was an incredible opportunity to take some pictures.

The problem was that the big fancy camera he would normally shoot with probably wouldn’t fare all that well in the sub-freezing temperatures.

Now you’d think that without a DSLR camera, a nature photographer is SOL, right? You’ve probably heard the phrase, ”the best camera is the one you have with you”, and so Bozinov starting to shoot with his iPhone 7 Plus.

i’ve just landed in the world’s southermost city ushuaia, argentina, where i’m spending the next couple of days before making my way down to antarctica. as usual my internet will be intermittent at best for the next few months while i’m on expedition, so i won’t be posting here regularly again until th…

Chrome for iPhone and iPad joins the open source Chromium project

Chrome for iPhone and iPad joins the rest of its siblings as part of the open source Chromium project.

Google has announced that it has open-sourced the iOS version of its Chrome browser. This brings Chrome for iOS into the Chromium project, and allows developers to compile the code just as they would for Chromium for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android.

Some extra work had to go into the open source Chromium project for the iOS version of Chrome to be added. From Google:

Due to constraints of the iOS platform, all browsers must be built on top of the WebKit rendering engine. For Chromium, this means supporting both WebKit as well as Blink, Chrome’s rendering engine for other platforms. That created some extra complexities which we wanted to avoid placing in the Chromium code base.

The company hopes that development of Chrome for iOS will proceed at a more rapid pace with all of the tests for Chrome for iOS now available to the Chromium community at large. The Chromium project…

How to block spam calls on your iPhone

Don’t know the number? Sick of telemarketers? Block ’em!

SPAAAAAAAM, WONDERFUL SPAAAAAAM! Kidding — it’s not wonderful. You’re just sitting down to catch up on Netflix and the phone rings and it’s Sarah from some wildlife organization, wanting to know if you’ll donate money to save the penguins. Are they endangered? No, but they’re very cold. Shut up, Sarah.

While iOS 10 doesn’t innately block spam, you can download some third-party apps that can totally help you out.

Note: These apps are only available for iOS 10 or later.

Third-party call blocking apps

Many third-party apps have been developed (thanks to iOS 10’s openness to developers) that can alert you of a possible spam call by checking an incoming number against the app’s database. You can install multiple spam blocking apps and have them work simultaneously, just in case there are any holes in any app’s spam library.


Truecaller is free, though it requires some information from you before you can use it…
