Tumblr's iOS app is missing from Apple's App Store. Tumblr says that it is “working to resolve an issue with the iOS app,” but it's not clear if the app is missing from the store because it was removed by Apple, or by Tumblr itself. Earlier this week, users reported that there were issues with searching in the iOS app while Safe Mode was off. According to PiunikaWeb, Users who deleted the app in an attempt to reinstall it discovered that it was now missing from the App Store, although some users reported that they could re-download the app [...]

According to a new report from Thurott, Microsoft has been working on a new console in the Xbox One family. This cheaper model could play regular Xbox One games, but there would be no Blu-Ray drive. This move would lower the price of the entry-level Xbox One. An Xbox One S officially starts at $299 but you can currently find it for around $250 on Amazon. The disc-less Xbox One could start at $199. If you already have an Xbox One and physical games, you could imagine going to an official retailer to trade your discs for a digital download code.

The tablet gave out quickly when host Zack Nelson performed his signature bend test, cracking down the middle near the microphone hole on the tablet's left side and the Apple Pencil's magnetic charging area on the right. This YouTube video is not the only case of the new iPad Pros having less-than-ideal structural integrity. I've seen scattered forum reports of the tablets showing slight bends after just a day or two of usage or after being carried [...]

I like E3 . I really do. But it's also monumentally dumb: game companies spending millions to show off essentially faked content to an increasingly jaded audience. And it's increasingly out of step with how the gaming industry works. So it should come as no surprise that Sony will be skipping the show more or less altogether this year, joining Nintendo in taking a step back from spectacle. Sony has been a part of CES for 20 years and this will be the first one it's ever missed. I've gone to their events every time I've attended; I was there [...]
