Apple’s first U.S. iTunes Festival is only one day away. To ensure that as many possible viewers have a chance to watch their favorite artists perform, Apple has updated the iOS app to include information for this week’s show. Additionally, Apple TV now has the newly redesigned channel available. Users can watch live concerts, buy music, and more from both the iOS app and the Apple TV channel.
Electronics company Beats is working very hard to make their name known in the mobile streaming music industry. In January, the company launched its branded music player, “Beats Music” to much fanfare on the iPhone. The company recently announced it would make its application programming interface (API) available to third-party developers, giving them access to more than 20 million songs
It’s finally here. Apple’s next big update is now available for download. It is “packed with interface refinements” and adds a bunch of new features, including CarPlay. Plus, you’ll have more control over Siri, better iTunes Radio features, and more. That annoying bug that would crash your iPad on the home screen… gone.
Pizza Hut is heading toward the future. Last week, the company launched a concept commercial showing what it would be like to sit down at a table in the restaurant, build your own pizza, order it, and pay for it using a giant touch screen and your iPhone.

Although recent rumors have pointed in a completely different direction, it appears that Apple’s frienemy will be at the helm of production for the company’s next A-series processor.

According to a report from ZDNet Korea, an unnamed source claims that Samsung has signed a manufacturing agreement with Apple to produce the next generation A-series processor. The chipmaker is scheduled to begin shipping the A8 this fall.
I’ve always wanted to throw rocks at windows. I’ve never done it. I swear. But, every time I see an abandoned building, I just want to break all of the windows out. The satisfying sound of glass, crashing to bits would be so cool. Maybe the reason I’m so enamored by the idea of breaking windows is because I’ve never done it.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is one of those games that Star Wars fans have thoroughly embraced as part of the universe. When it was ported to iOS, the game retained its original content and was just like playing on a desktop computer, except for the oddity of touch-based movements. This week, Aspyr Media gave the app a major update to now supports MFi controllers. So, that strange sensation of touching and swiping to move won’t take getting used to. Now, you’ll just have to get used to using a D-pad to control things.
I’ve mentioned before how much I love using my iPad for cooking and baking. I save recipes from blogs to Evernote Food. I have a board on Pinterest with yummy treats. I have a dozen different recipe apps right on my iPad. Now, a new one will be added to the mix. SideChef is a step-by-step cooking app that makes it easy for amateurs to feel like pros in the kitchen.
