The LG G3 has yet to be launched in the U.S., and a new image leak from @evleaks reveals that the main carriers in the region already had their way with the handset. Of the four LG G3 versions going to AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, only the Sprint model lacks any carrier branding. And of course, Verizon’s version has more logos on the handset than any other model.

The 2014 Autofest Beach Club event is annual outdoor meet complete with sand, palm trees, and bikinis on the beach, as custom tuner cars and even a few classics gather at the Beach Club in Pointe-Calumet, Quebec.

Although the event was held on the beach, we sure didn’t hear any classic Beach Boys music playing. Unlike most traditional classic car shows where the majority of car collectors and enthusiasts seem to have much more white hair on their heads, this type of beach party theme event attracts much younger crowd.

While we spotted a fair number of tastefully modified custom cars (like the widebody Subaru pictured above), this tuner crowd still managed to have a few handfuls of “what were they thinking” surprises on display with gullwing doors, weird bodykits and spinning wheels (yuck) which we prayed had stayed in the Fast N’ Furious late 90s-2000s.

Click here for our full photo gallery and judge for yourself, as Autofest Beach Club managed to draw custom cars from nice to rice.

It’s no secret that Steve Jobs had a mixed reputation during his tenure at Apple, but there are few individuals with a better understanding of the man than Steve Wozniak. In a recent interview with the Milwaukee Business Journal, Wozniak discussed both sides of Jobs — the discerning, thoughtful business man and the demanding, off-putting boss.

Google at I/O 2014 released a preview of Android L, its next major Android operating system version that brings a complete design makeover and a slew of new features. But the company only posted the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) Android L builds, leaving Android fans who own other Nexus devices waiting for official Android L ROMs that could be installed on the Nexus 4 smartphone or the older Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 tablets.

While Google is yet to release the official Android L Developer Preview for older Nexus devices, developers have already put the Android L SDK and Android L source code to good use to come up with their own Android L ports for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012).

Even though some say the Nexus line of devices is approaching the end of the road, Google has recently confirmed that it doesn’t plan to kill the family of devices which it uses to highlight its vision of what Android should look and feel like on smartphones and tablets. Some reports have already mentioned a high-end HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet is coming later this year, with one particular story offering plenty of details about the tablet that’s supposed to launch alongside the final Android L build this fall.

However, it’s not clear what the name of Google’s 2014 tablet will be. And now a Nexus 8 tablet, which was also mentioned in previous months, was spotted in a shipping manifest on Indian cargo tracking site Zauba.

The single most important thing Steve Jobs told Tim Cook before he passed away

%name The single most important thing Steve Jobs told Tim Cook before he passed away by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The single most annoying criticism that people have about Apple CEO Tim Cook is that he isn’t running the company like Steve Jobs would have run it. While it’s undoubtably true that Cook is running Apple much differently than the way Jobs ran it, Cook doesn’t have much of an option — he’s just not a charismatic visionary like Jobs and there’s nothing he can do to change that.

In what could have been one of the most terrifying disasters of the decade, a UTair Boeing 767 had to abort its landing when an errant Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus suddenly taxied onto the runway during the plane’s descent. With seconds to spare, the pilot of the 767 pulled back up, narrowly avoiding the other plane and potentially saving hundreds of lives.
