Following in Apple’s footsteps once again, Samsung added support for content and ad blockers to its pre-installed browser over the weekend. As long as you use the Samsung Internet browser on your Galaxy phone, you will now be able to download extensions from the Google Play store that hide advertisements and speed up loading times.
Considering the update to Samsung’s browser is less than 24 hours old, there aren’t too many ad blockers to be found at the moment, but Samsung did partner up with Adblock Fast to bring the popular open source iOS, Chrome and Opera ad blocker to Android at launch.
According to a blog post by the software creators, Adblock Fast is [...]
Apple’s November launch of the iPad Pro didn’t really do much to alleviate slumping iPad sales. In fact, Apple’s most recent earnings report revealed that year over year iPad sales were down 25% while iPad-based revenue was down 21% year over year.
Nonetheless, Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly stated that he remains confident in the iPad’s long-term success.

In turn, the volume of iPad Air 3 rumors sprouting up has started to increase substantially over the past few weeks.

By enabling certain ‘flags’ in the Settings menu, The Next Web was able to see a few of the changes early. Although the changes aren’t going to turn [...]
Just like most of you, we also got bored waiting for Valve to officially announce the third title of the Half Life series.
Unfortunately, this is never going to happen. Still, even if Valve is not planning to create Half Life 3, the company has decided to approve an independent project called Prospekt.
Prospekt is the result of the work made by a single person, Richard Seabrook, a Half Life fan who spent the last two years working on this project. Probably impressed by Richard’s quality work, Valve gave him the official license to use the Source graphics engine, along with the Half Life 2 assets ( models, textures, etc ), as well as the possibility of selling the [...]
