Intel has now confirmed that it will indeed release a BIOS update which will disable any form of overclocking on non-K Skylake processors. According to PCWorld, Intel mentioned that overclocking non-K Skylake processors isn’t recommended, simply because they weren’t designed for it.

Instagram has finally added support for multiple accounts on a single device in its 7.15 update. This has been a long time coming, although it has probably come a lot later than many users would have liked. In any case, Instagram users on Android and iOS will now be able to manage multiple accounts in a more reasonable way.
Apple’s iOS 9 firmware update may bring with it a lot of new features, but it also has the ability to render your iPhone useless if it has ever been fixed by a third party repair provider.

Over the years, smartphone manufacturers have tried combining the phone and camera into one device without making it look like a bulky point and shoot camera. Most of these smartphones end up having a protruding camera on the back. Let’s be honest, most of them look quite ugly.
Lenovo’s Vibe Shot, however, is an interesting take on the smartphone camera. Featuring a back design that’s reminiscent of a pocket camera, it’s also the only “camera-centric” smartphone that doesn’t feature a camera hump.
Asus’ ZenFone lineup has seen more than a few additions in the past year. There’s the ZenFone 2, the ZenFone Max, and of course, this device right here: the ZenFone Zoom.

While an optical zoom sounds cool, is it enough to make the ZenFone Zoom a great Android smartphone? Or is it just a more refined ZenFone 2?
