- September 12, 2016

Arkansas gored the Horned Frogs in a double overtime upset in Fort Worth Friday, winning 41-38. Sooner or later, we fear that the Razorbacks' pass defense, which ranked 103rd nationally last season, will inevitably break down. However, TCU didn't remain scoreless for long. On the first play of the drive, the team threw a touchdown, which led to the crowd in Fort Worth going insane. (more...)

Belkin Lightning headphone and power dongle. Yep, $40 to do what your current phone already does now. Unless you buy a £35 adapter. What a time to be alive. However, Apple itself introduced a host of accessories for its latest flagship such as the AirPods and Lightning to 3.5mm adapter. One adapter plugged into the phone, another adapter plugged into the original adapter and the headphones plugged into the second adapter that's plugged into the adapter plugged into the iPhone 7.

Apple warns: Jet Black iPhone 7 scratches easier
- September 12, 2016

That's a rather vague statement from Belkin but we'd hazard a guess that it means the phone will charge at the rate you would expect, not as if it was being charged by a hamster running on a wheel.

The combo charger and headphone jack adapter you want for your just ordered iPhone 7 is coming from Belkin instead of Apple. (more...)
