Gyms Now Offering Perks for Working Out With an Apple Watch

Gyms Now Offering Perks for Working Out With an Apple Watch

The plan is that soon you’ll be able to waltz into a gym, connect your Apple Watch to a treadmill, and earn cash back or a free watch just for showing up.

There’s not even a catch, supposedly. If you already own an Apple Watch, a new program Apple launched with select gyms will offer perks for putting in the work you were probably already doing to close those activity rings. According to

All These Extremely Powerful People May Want to Double Check They Weren’t Hacked by a Saudi Prince

All These Extremely Powerful People May Want to Double Check They Weren’t Hacked by a Saudi Prince

In early 2018, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman took a sweeping tour of the U.S. as part of a strategy to rebrand Saudi Arabia’s ruling monarchy as a modernizing force and pull off his “Vision 2030” plan—hobnobbing with a list of corporate execs and politicians that reads like a who’s who list of the U.S. elite. The trip was so heavily promoted by the Saudis that 200,000 copies of a...

The Witcher's Haunting Soundtrack Will Be Available to Stream Soon

The Witcher's Haunting Soundtrack Will Be Available to Stream Soon

Despite having rather overwrought lyrics and being kind of annoying to listen to, people love the hell out of the Bard Jaskier’s tune “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” from The Witcher’s first season, and it would seem as if Netflix has been listening to the public’s desperate cries for more.

Beginning today, “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher ,” as performed by actor Joey Batey, is now available to...

Siri Doesn’t Know Who the King of Spain Is

Siri Doesn’t Know Who the King of Spain Is

Siri is apparently having a really hard time figuring out what’s going on in Spain lately. Apple’s voice assistant made headlines in the European country today for providing two answers to the question, “Siri, who is the king of Spain?” The first answer, Felipe VI, is indeed the real king of the country. However, the second answer is actually Spain’s prime minister, Pedro Sánchez.

The voice...

Wolf Puppies, Coke Energy and the Last Vestige of Internet Explorer: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

Wolf Puppies, Coke Energy and the Last Vestige of Internet Explorer: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

To celebrate this three-day weekend, we’re going to share some pretty adorable news: Wolf puppies can play fetch . Isn’t that cool? Yes, I know, these are wolf puppies. They’re probably a lot more dangerous when they grow up when compared to normal puppies, but the idea of cute little wolf puppies playing fetch still makes me go “aww.”

(Although that doesn’t mean I’ll play fetch with them.)

The FBI Broke Into an iPhone Just a Few Months Ago, Why Does It Need Apple Now?

The FBI Broke Into an iPhone Just a Few Months Ago, Why Does It Need Apple Now?

Federal officials have called on Apple to unlock a phone belonging to a shooter who killed three people last month at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, but the company has refused to do so , saying there’s “no such thing as a backdoor just for the good guys.” But the FBI has managed to unlock iPhones all on its own in the past, so why can’t the agency do it again?

A search warrant obtained by...

The Dream of a Common Charger Is Alive—Despite Apple's Complaining

The Dream of a Common Charger Is Alive—Despite Apple's Complaining

The European Parliament is fed up with e-waste—in particular, charging cables. To fix the problem, lawmakers are debating a binding measure that would force gadget makers to use a standardized charging port.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this from Europe. One reason why microUSB is so prevalent is back in 2009 , the European Commission pushed for it as a universal standard on the...

Apple Pay Users Are Getting Unintentionally Charged at NYC Subway Turnstiles

Apple Pay Users Are Getting Unintentionally Charged at NYC Subway Turnstiles

The MTA, New York City’s monument to dysfunction and grime and anguish, is overcharging us again, the bastards. Riders have reported seeing $2.75 charges on their Apple Pay accounts after walking past contactless OMNY fare readers, even when using the physical MetroCards. Like most of our city’s public transit woes, this is apparently happening in no other city but ours.

The MTA confirmed in a...

Así sería el nuevo iPhone "barato" que Apple lanzará este año

Así sería el nuevo iPhone "barato" que Apple lanzará este año

Llevamos tiempo oyendo rumores de una posible renovación del iPhone SE con componentes de última generación. A juzgar por estas imágenes no oficiales, lo que Apple está preparando es más bien un sucesor del iPhone 8 con los mismos bordes gruesos y el mismo botón redondo que llevamos viendo 12 años.

Las imágenes, publicadas por OnLeaks en colaboración con iGeeksBlog, muestran un teléfono de...

Sure Looks Like Apple Is Still Selling This iMac from 2006

Sure Looks Like Apple Is Still Selling This iMac from 2006

Apple products are notoriously expensive, but this is just ridiculous. Apparently, Apple’s website is still listing the 2006 iMac 17-inch 1.83-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo for around $1,000—depending on where you’re trying to buy from.

The product listing was initially spotted by Twitter user @DylanMcD8 in the Canadian version of Apple.com, where it costs a brain-melting price of Canadian $1,100...

Desde una caca sonriente hasta un unicornio: Apple ahora permite grabar emojis en la funda de los AirPods

Si alguna vez has querido grabar tu emoji favorito en tus AirPods, Apple te ha escuchado. Aunque Apple actualmente ofrece la opción de grabar una frase en la funda de los AirPods, no ofrecía la posibilidad de añadir un emoji, lo cual es curioso, dado que ya se han convertido en un elemento imprescindible de nuestras comunicaciones.

According to the New York Times, Plepler’s new production company has a five-year exclusivity deal with Apple’s TV+.

¿Querías un iPhone "barato"? Apple podría lanzar dos este año

¿Querías un iPhone "barato"? Apple podría lanzar dos este año

Tradicionalmente, los iPhones son cada año un poco más caros, pero en 2016 Apple lanzó un iPhone SE que venía con componentes de última generación en un cuerpo de 4 pulgadas y costaba 300 dólares menos que el iPhone principal.

Desde aquel año no hemos vuelto a ver un iPhone “asequible”, pero DigiTimes sugiere que esta temporada veremos dos. Según la publicación, Apple lanzaría seis modelos de...

The MacBook Pro 16 Needs to Be the Future of Apple Laptops

The MacBook Pro 16 Needs to Be the Future of Apple Laptops

If you’ve bought an Apple laptop in the last few years and you try out the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, you will be furious. It’s so good. It works precisely as a laptop should—the issues that have plagued Apple’s laptops in recent years seem absent. Everything about the device seems to follow an age-old Apple edict the company forgot: It just works.

So while I’m delighted by the existence of the...
