Spotify claims it actually had a better Weeknd than Apple Music

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Yesterday, The Verge reported that The Weeknd’s latest album, My Dear Melancholy, had a very strong debut on Apple Music, pulling in 26 million streams in the first 24 hours. The lead single, “Call Out My Name” pulled in an additional 6 million streams, surpassing the 3.5 million streams the single pulled in on Spotify during the same period, according to The Weeknd’s label, Republic Records.

Obviously that would be a huge win for Apple Music given that it has around 120 million less users than Spotify, didn’t have two exclusive music videos from the project, and didn’t have The Weeknd promoting its service.

But there’s a twist! Spotify says the numbers it initially gave Republic Records were in fact wrong. “Call Out My Name” was…

One month after filing a patent infringement lawsuit against Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, BlackBerry has filed a lawsuit against another major mobile entity.

BlackBerry is accusing Snap Inc., maker of Snapchat, of infringing on its patents. BlackBerry says that Snap has infringed on six of its patents that were isseud in 2012 and 2014. Two of those patents are among the seven that BlackBerry says Facebook has infringed on.

Snap declined to comment on this lawsuit.

BlackBerry Messenger is one of the older mobile messaging services around, and so likely has quite a collection of patents related to messaging clients. However, we’ll just have to wait and see if the company’s claims that Snap is infringing on its patents hold up in court.

CloudFlare launches 1.1.1.1 public DNS service, claims it’s faster than Google DNS and OpenDNS

Domain Name Servers, or DNS for short, are directories of domain names and what IP addresses they are linked to. When you type in a website, like androidpolice.com or google.com, your DNS looks up the IP address tied to that domain so the page can be loaded. Most people just use the DNS service provided by their ISP, but alternatives like Google Public DNS and OpenDNS have become popular in recent years.

According to a statement made by a Google employee on the Pixel product forums, a somewhat widespread problem with receiving MMS messages on the Pixel 2 XL has been resolved. But if you ask the people that claimed to be affected, you’ll get a very different answer.

Japanese Report Claims Apple Planning ‘Gold’ iPhone X Color Option, With a Refreshed 9.7-inch iPad to Launch in Q3 2018

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple plans to introduce a new gold iPhone X color option in an effort to boost sales of the Face ID equipped smartphone, while a new revamped 9.7-inch iPad is set to drop in the third quarter of 2018, according to tech blog Mac Otakara.

Apple offered the iPhone X only in Silver and Space Gray at launch, so the prevailing rationale behind a new color is that it could perhaps lure new upgraders during a typically sluggish mid-season.

As for the 9.7-inch iPad refresh, the Japanese-language tech blog reckons the sixth-generation device will go on sale in the third quarter.

Mac Otakara doesn’t provide any clues as to the sources of its information, but the iPhone X rumor tallies with another one that emerged just last week, courtesy of Benjamin Geskin. Responding to online chat about a possible new colorway, the parts leaker shared pictures of an alleged “Blush Gold” iPhone X.

With regards to the 9.7-inch iPad claim, it’s unclear if Mac Otakara is referring to an imminent low-cost 9.7-inch iPad refresh, which may include support for the Apple Pencil, or another model entirely. In December, for example, DigiTimes claimed Apple was planning to release its most affordable 9.7-inch iPad yet in late 2018.

However, Bloomberg claims the low-cost iPad refresh device will be announced at Apple’s first event of the year on Tuesday, March 27, which the company has indicated will have an educational focus. Given the theme, the launch of new iPhone colors at this event seems unlikely, though not impossible.

In March of last year, Apple introduced a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and it’s possible the company could be planning to do the same thing this year, with a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and perhaps X.
