T-Mobile surprises couple with a 4x higher bill out of the blue

Imagine you’re planning a delicious week of meals, and then BAM! Your phone carrier charges a bill more than a spaceship full of data. That’s what happened to one couple in the US. T-Mobile charged them a mysterious $357 for a month of phone usage, four times as much as their average monthly bill. When disputed, the carrier said, “Oops, go fight with your bank.” And the bank asked them to wait…

The couple must be hoping their fridge doesn’t declare war before they get their money back.

Apple downgraded the iPad Air’s GPU from 10 cores to 9 cores

Remember how Apple bragged about the new iPad Air having a 10-core GPU? Turns out it was just a typo, or maybe a deliberate exaggeration to look cool. The company has quietly changed it to 9 cores. It’s like the iPad Air forgot its gym membership and got a little flabby. Nobody at Apple is explaining why, but rumor has it the iPad Pro is feeling jealous and wants all the best toys. Awkward!

The NSA’s guide to keeping your phone and yourself safe

Smartphones can be hotbeds for spying. The NSA is here to tell you how to babysit your phone like it’s a toddler running loose with classified documents. Don’t talk about sensitive things near your phone, it might eavesdrop! Forget about using public Wi-Fi—that’s like letting your phone wander off with a stranger at the playground. Keep it on a leash (or a strong password), don’t let it talk to strangers (unknown networks), and be super suspicious of everything it downloads. Basically, treat your phone like it’s a secret agent in training.

Acer launches new Chromebooks that don’t excite anyone

Acer just unveiled some new Chromebooks built for business, but they’re about as exciting as watching paint dry. They’re surely tougher than a toddler’s toy, can last a workday on a charge, and come with built-in AI that might help you with meetings (or at least judge your presentation outfit). The problem? They’re missing that special something to make Windows users jealous. It’s like Acer built a perfectly fine work truck, but forgot the flux capacitor to make it fly.
