WhatsApp Brouhaha Breaks Out in Brazil


A Brazilian judge on Thursday lifted the ban a different judge had imposed on WhatsApp hours earlier, according to reports. It did not seem reasonable to affect millions of users to penalize Facebook, WhatsApp’s owner, for failing to cooperate with judicial rulings, the judge reportedly said, suggesting that the imposition of a larger fine would have been more appropriate. The ruling reversed the decision of a judge in Sao Paulo, Brazil, who on Wednesday had ordered the 48-hour suspension of WhatsApp services starting at midnight.

iPhone 6 Plus review round-up: Like a mini iPad Mini, but with a better camera

iPhone 6 Plus: Bigger than bigger than bigger
Early this morning, the embargo lifted on reviews of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Reviews for the iPhone 6 are almost exactly what you’d expect — it’s just a bigger iPhone — so instead we’re going to look at reviews of iPhone 6 Plus, which have been a lot more divisive. Is the iPhone 6 Plus too large? Has Apple nailed the large-screen iOS experience on the iPhone 6 Plus, or does fuzzy zooming and app glitchiness ruin it? And perhaps most importantly, does that bigger chassis mean that the iPhone 6 Plus can turn in some truly amazing battery life figures?
