Editors' note This review was updated November 6 with new information about the Mac version of Pages from Apple.Pages, Apple's word processing app for iOS, got a complete redesign for iOS 7, but the new look isn't the only change from the old version. Apple has added several more templates, moved font style and formatting tools to the top of the keyboard, and added the capability to collaborate with others on multiple devices. The only drawback is that in remaking iWork from the ground up with feature parity in the iOS and Mac versions, Mac users lose … Read more
He's played damaged Paul on "Dexter," villainous Lucifer on "Supernatural," vampire mob boss Bishop on "Being Human," sinister Dr. Jedikiah Price (his current role) on "The Tomorrow People," and upcoming turns as antagonists in feature films "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" and "The Trials of Cate McCall." Actor Mark Pellegrino has forged an impressive career out of playing bad boys.

You already know your phone or tablet can take the place of physical books, magazines, newspapers, boarding passes, Starbucks cards, and so on. Now there's one more printed item getting the virtual treatment: weekly circulars.
You know the kind: they used to come in your Sunday paper, back when you got a Sunday paper. I'm talking ads for Best Buy, Kohl's, Meijer, Target, Walmart, and other big chains, all of which are especially intriguing this time of year as Black Friday approaches.Flipp is a free app that aggregates all the weekly shopping circulars for your area. … Read more
With Internet Explorer 11 only a few weeks old, Google Apps will support only the current version and IE 10, Google announced on Tuesday.
The move -- which Google says follows its established practice of supporting only the current and prior major versions for competing browsers -- could help push Google Chrome's adoption rate. It's unlikely that Chrome, which automatically updates to its latest version, would ever not work with Google Apps.
However, with Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 in the near future, companies that need IE support for other enterprise Web apps probably will hold on … Read more
For years now I've been on the torture-test beat for Crave -- covering everything from an iPad dipped in hot lava to a smoothie made of the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. The day has finally come that such demonstrations are being inflicted upon the human users of devices, all in the name of a little viral PR.
So it is with some hesitation that I share the below video of professional stunt guy Jon Watson (do not try this at home, or even in Georgia where the event is held, if you're smart) paying his bills via Capital One's smartphone app while being chased by huge, upset and behorned bulls. … Read more
KitKat, the most recent version of Android, brings features as sweet as its namesake to the new Google Nexus 5. Among these, you'll find a new phone dialer, Caller ID, true full screen, a new Hangouts app, and printing abilities.
To use all of these new features, KitKat also has an updated Google Keyboard. This keyboard is very similar to the version released on the Google Play Store, except the swiping line color has changed, you can glide over space to insert it between words, and some upgraded emoji are included.
If you have Android 4.… Read more
Apple's new mobile operating system for the iPad and iPhone, iOS 7, has a distinctive look that's easily recognizable. The design isn't for everyone, however, as Jason Parker noticed from comments left in his iOS 7 review. If you do appreciate the new look of iOS 7, there's a Chrome browser extension that might be for you.
The IOS 7 New Tab Page Chrome extension replaces the regular new tab page with an interface that looks just like iOS 7. It comes with a default set of "apps," which are just shortcuts to Web … Read more
Path, the private, mobile social network for friends and family members, has its eye on BlackBerry, but apparently no decisions have been made just yet.
Speaking to a news outlet in Indonesia this week, Path CEO Dave Morin seems to have said that his company would be bringing its application to BlackBerry in 2014, according to Crackberry. He didn't specify whether the application would be available on BlackBerry 10, said the report, but considering there are no known plans for an update to BlackBerry's operating system anytime soon, it appeared likely BlackBerry 10 would get the nod from … Read more
