Audible flaw lets you download free audiobooks using fake accounts

Company behind ‘Settlers of Catan’ actually made the fake board game from ‘Parks and Recreation’

The Cones of Dunshire is every Parks and Recreation fan’s favorite made-up board game, but it turns out wildly complex game isn’t quite as fictional as we all thought. Mayfair Games, the publishers of German board game favorite Settlers of Catan, worked with the show’s producers to design the basic version of Cones used in season six. And now a fleshed-out version of the game as been played in real life. A total of 33 players partook in some Cones action earlier this month at the Gen Con gaming conference in Indianapolis as part of a charity event that raised over $ 20,000.

In the world of Parks and Rec, resident nerd (and huge Settlers fan) Ben Wyatt first came up with the game during a misspent week between jobs. Mayfair Games worked…

After recent reports highlighting scams that lead people to pay for useless apps that are typically free, Microsoft’s Windows Apps and Store general manager, Todd Brix, says the company will be enforcing its policies more strictly in future.

The scam apps are going away

While Microsoft made some changes earlier this year to its app certification requirements, Brix says Microsoft has been conducting a review of the Windows Store to find apps that don’t comply with the guidelines. Microsoft’s policies state names need to be clear and icons must be…

How Oculus And 8 Fake Ears Could Morph Concerts Into Video Games

Binaural 3D Microphone head I’m standing on a circular stage with neo-folk musician Beck. Surrounded by cheering fans, I blush, then turn and wave to thank them. They don’t see me, though, because I’m actually sitting in a dark, empty back room at Sundance Film Festival wearing an Oculus Rift. Read More

These iPhone 6 Renders Are Fake, But Also Pretty Great Looking

iphone-6-render

Rumors circulated yesterday that the cat was out of the bag on Apple’s next iPhone design: the picture above was one of a series leaked by a Twitter user depicting a supposed redesign of Apple’s redesign. This supposed iPhone 6 had a rounded back more akin to the iPad than the current iPhone, with next to no bezel and a big, edge-to-edge display. But it’s all fake.

The photos appear to actually be advanced renders, which at least one Reddit user convincingly argues are the work of Martin Hajek. Hajek is known for his photorealistic device render work, and in fact he created one for an iPhone 6 with a very similar look back in March, 2013. This new image details the inside of the case, showing some ribbons and other components, and adds a Touch ID sensor to the front and a double-flash to the back (both of which weren’t known about at the time of the original renders), but the rest of the industrial design looks borrowed from the earlier concept.

The renders may not represent what Apple actually has in the works, but this is a redesign I could get behind. The iPad mini with Retina display is essentially a larger version of this as it is, and it’s nearly handholdable or pocketable. Apple has been using the hard-edged and more angular design of the iPhone 5s for two generations now, but it went with rounded edges for the iPhone 5c, and that has proved popular ergonomically with many reviewers.

So would you pony up for this if Apple unveiled something similar come fall? A bigger screen is almost a lock, but ditching the back bevel would also be a nice move in my opinion. Hopefully Hajek proves psychic when we do finally get a real glimpse at what Apple has in store for us next.
