    For a minute there we thought that the Spotlight Stories that were exclusive to recent Motorola smartphones, remained that way because it was a Motorola thing.

    We've spent the last couple of months covering many rumors regarding future Windows 10 Mobile Lumia flagships in the works. Sadly these haven't gone beyond rumors, something quite unfortunate for a platform that's hungry for flagships. That said most of these rumors coincide with each other so far, so it seems we're ...

    Even though Cupertino will want you to believe that its mobile operating system is the most secure and reliable in the world, we know there's no such thing. We've expressed how disappointing things have become for iOS since the launch of iOS 7, and as much as iOS 9 might come to save the day, that doesn't mean you won't ...

    Siri's often spoken of in the same context as Google Now, but there's a wide breadth between the features each service offers.

    Both Google and Apple are eager to spread their mobile influences from beyond that tiny device you carry around in your pocket to one that's attached to some slightly more substantial hardware: your car.

    It was about two months ago when we first got word of Microsoft's cross-platform ambitions for its incredibly useful Office Lens app. The once Windows Phone-exclusive lets you capture signs, documents – pretty much anything your phone's camera can see – and converts them into nice, clean perspective- and ...

    Motorola's no stranger to building high-end smartphones with pixel-rich quad HD displays: last year it brought us the Droid Turbo and Nexus 6, and this year we've been looking forward to models like the new Moto X.

    Even in 2015, one of the worst parts about buying a smartphone in the US is the associated wireless plan.

    I was never a fan of handwriting while I was in school.  Later I was introduced to fountain pens and all of that changed. My "daily carry" pen is an aluminum-bodied, steel-nibbed pen from Schrade that writes wonderfully and looks great. The downside is that all my handwritten notes are analog. I have to manually scan ...
