Apple’s fix for major iOS 8 bug coming in the ‘next few days’

Apple says it’s working “around the clock” on a fix to its 8.0.1 update, which went out Wednesday and proceeded to wreak havoc for owners of the company’s newest iPhones. Apple now says a working version of that update will be ready “in the next few days.” In the meantime, the company has outlined a way to restore both cell service and Touch ID to unlucky users who downloaded the faulty update. The company’s using a similar method to the workaround that was discovered earlier today.

Per a company spokesperson:

We have a workaround for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who lost cellular service and Touch ID functionality today after updating to iOS 8.0.1. Affected users can reinstall iOS 8 through iTunes, for more information visit h…

Valve announces major ‘Dota 2′ update that includes a change to the map

Following on from the hugely successful The International 4 tournament this summer, Valve’s Dota 2 is soon going to get one of its biggest makeovers since its release. The headline figure for patch 6.82 is the Shadow Fiend hero, who’s getting a big cosmetic redesign, but there are more important changes afoot on the map upon which this game of swashbuckling and sorcery is played. Unlike most online multiplayer games, Dota 2 is played on only a single asymmetric map, and familiarity with its nuances is part the game’s strategic depth. The Roshan pit has been repositioned slightly, along with small terrain and path alterations all over the map.

Other notable hero changes include the addition of new skills for the Bloodseeker and Phantom…

A Map Of All Major Marvel Characters’ Hometowns

marvel-character-hometowns-small.jpg Note: Larger version of the map HERE. This is a map created by Movoto highlighting the hometowns of major Marvel superheroes and villains. Amazingly, they forgot to include Santa from the North Pole. “Santa is not a Marvel superhero.” Oh really? Then how do you explain THIS MINT COPY OF SANTA’S ADVENTURES #1? “That’s a coloring book.” So it’s probably not worth the $ 650 I paid for it is what you’re saying. Thanks to CL, who is from space like Superman.

Major Bitcoin company releases open source library to make it easier to build Bitcoin apps

Bitcoin, the virtual currency that approximates cash on the internet, has been around for five years now, and its popularity has soared. But although its reach has spread beyond the initial circle of very technical, very insider-y circle of cryptographers and programmers, its audience is still largely restricted to people who are at least a little bit nerdy. Ask any Bitcoin enthusiast what’s the biggest obstacle to the currency becoming mainstream, and they’ll tell you the same thing: it’s hard to use.

BitPay, a major Bitcoin payments processor, just launched a project that will help do just that. The company has released Bitcore, an open source Javascript library that will make it easier for developers to build apps and tools for…

Though it began with a rocky start, healthcare signups through the United States’ new insurance marketplaces surged this month, bringing total enrollments to 2.1 million for the end of the year. Most notably, enrollment doubled through Healthcare.gov as the deadline for January coverage approached. Given Healthcare.gov’s often-inoperable state during the prior months, that statistic isn’t necessarily so impressive, but the government is encourage that enrollments will actually continue to grow from now through March, when the enrollment period ends.
