    The issue of app availability across platforms found itself in the news again last week, as BlackBerry CEO John Chen made a (by many accounts misguided) plea in the name of net neutrality to legally force developers and content providers to bring their work to his platform.

    It's such a simple word, “unlimited.” Yet far, far too often when we're using it in the context of smartphones and mobile data, it means anything but.

    Samsung is expected to try something a little different with the design of its flagship Galaxy S6 this year, but just how far away from its comfort zone will the manufacturer stray.

    Over the years, Twitter's been evolving from a blank 140-character slate to deliver users more and more features.

    Usually, when a mobile device sale is made at a retailer, the device being bought has been officially announced. That's fairly common sense, you'd think, but it seems that around two months ago something oddly different happened.
