Audio-Technica’s new flagship headphones come in a luxury case and cost $1,999
When we talk about headphone cases, we usually mean some sort of box or pouch that keeps them safe from harm and dust, not an actual piece of luggage. But Audio-Technica has gone literal with the case for its new flagship headphones, the ATH-ADX5000, giving you a fancy briefcase to tote your $1,999 headphones in. And, oh yes, these open-back headphones do cost an order of magnitude more than Audio-Technica’s most popular models, with the Japanese company aiming to do battle with the likes of …

Apple removes popular apps in Iran due to US sanctions
Apple removed several popular Iranian apps from its app stores this week, telling developers that the apps were blocked due to US sanctions against Iran.

Facebook rolls out new family emoji, but there’s something missing

Facebook rolls out new family emoji, but there’s something missing
Facebook has rolled out 125 new family emoji, expanding the default yellow skin tone to include light, medium, and darker tones, and more family combinations. Though the rollout enables users to have more options, all of the family members that comprise each emoji still share the same skin tone. That means there’s no representation of interracial families. Last year, Microsoft added 52,000 family emoji to its Windows 10 update with different combinations that included interracial families an…

Amazon Cash comes to the UK, but under a different name

Amazon Cash comes to the UK, but under a different name
Amazon’s newest in-store program, Top Up, looks a lot like an existing one, and for good reason. The company recently launched Top Up, a service that lets you deposit cash into your Amazon account by scanning a barcode at participating retailers, in the UK. It is in fact just a rebranded version of Amazon Cash, which the company launched back in July in the US with the same purpose. The goal is to allow people without credit, debit, or bank cards — which in the US is around 7 percent of house…

The deal is likely identical to what was struck with Universal in April, which included the option to initially hold back new albums from Spotify’s free tier and a break for Spotify in royalty payouts to the label. With renegotiated licensing deals in place with Sony, Universal, and now Warner, Spotify has all the components in place to predict thei…

HTC says the U11 will get Android Oreo before the end of the year
HTC is ready to commit to an Android Oreo upgrade. The company tweeted today that it will update its devices to the new OS starting in the fourth quarter of 2017, starting with the U11. Oreo will eventually come to U Ultra and the 10, too. This seems slightly ambitious, but at the same time, if you're going to release an expensive flagship device, you should also be able to keep it up-to-date.

Judge orders DreamHost to hand over anti-Trump website records to Justice Department

Judge orders DreamHost to hand over anti-Trump website records to Justice Department
After a dispute over the scope of a warrant, a judge today ordered hosting service DreamHost to turn over records related to an anti-Trump website. A court will oversee the search for information The legal fight started last week, when DreamHost said it had received a warrant from the Justice Department for records on the website “disruptj20.org,” which organized protests related to Trump’s inauguration. The warrant was so vaguely worded, and seemingly so broad, DreamHost argued, that it was…
