    Over the last several years, we've become increasingly skeptical over any manufacturer's ability to change enough from year to year to warrant a consumer flipping a phone after only 12 months.

    Good news for Apple: everyone has gone bananas for the pricier, fancier Jet Black finish on that new iPhone 7. The bad news? It can't make enough of those things to ship to everyone quick enough. So, if rumors of an all-glass iPhone next year come to bear, will Apple step up to meet the demand — if there is any? We've ...

    The Bluetooth Special Interest Group has certified a new "Surface Ergonomic Keyboard" for use with Bluetooth 4.2. Now, why would a presumably large, weirdly shaped keyboard get the Surface branding from Microsoft? Well, it would seem to affirm rumors that a Surface all-in-one computer is coming next month.

    Well, that didn’t take long. Technically, just 21 days since Apple formally took the wraps off the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and less than two weeks from the point of commercial deployment.

    I admit, I’m a bit of a fan of Google’s new messaging platform, Allo. I also admit, that I’m not really sure why. After all, it is the fourth messaging platform introduced by Google, and it has some limitations to it – most notably that it cannot be the default SMS handler for Android. But for a 1.0 product, ...
