    Microsoft has gained some decent fame with its launch of the Surface Pro 3. Surely it still hasn't proven that this tablet is attractive enough to replace the computers and tablets of most of the market, but we do praise the company for doing one of the best jobs we've seen. Still, nothing is perfect with these products on the first couple of rounds, and it seems the Surface Pro 3 has some unhappy customers. Many owners of the Surface Pro 3 in its Core i7 variant have been complaining on the web about the device overheating. Such is the problem that some have even experienced the tablet ...

    There have been a ton of rumors surrounding a Google Nexus 9 made by HTC. Sadly, aside from a couple of model numbers here and there, the amount of detail regarding what will power this HTC-made tablet have been quite scarce. We've speculated a lot on what we should expect from this design given HTC's track record, but today we finally get details on some internals. Reports claim that the Google Nexus 9 will be powered by a 2.5GHz dual-core NVIDIA's Tegra K1 Denver processor. What makes this processor famous, in addition to its 64-bit ARMv8 architecture, is the fact that it's fully pin ...

    Even though we're pretty much settled on a probable iPhone 6 event on September 9, most of the rumors around claim that we'll only see the 4.7-inch iPhone being announced. The reports even claim that we'll see the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 until December, along with the iWatch as well. At this point it's hard to know what rumors to believe, but some credible sources chime in with new data. Most of the credible Apple leaks have always come from the Wall Street Journal, but given the fact that Re/code hired most of its tech news team, we can safely say that this is another credible source as well. ...

    The image quality of photos taken with a smartphone camera flash have always been a topic of debate. Some mock the color reproduction, while others just want to see their face on the night shot, and could care less about quality. As such, both Apple and HTC have added True Tone Flash technology to their latest flagships in order to boost this quality, but given the recent iPhone 6 leaks, it was hard to predict if the technology was good enough to make it to another round. Today we find some leaked photos of the all the internals that will power the flash on the iPhone 6, and if you look ...

    The more time goes by, the more we're convinced that Apple's announcement of the iPhone 6 will happen on September 9. More than one credible source has confirmed this data, and it does make sense if you look back to previous iPhone announcements over the last couple of years. That said, if you're wondering which day you should call in sick in order to make that crazy line, well, there are rumors to back that too. Asian sources are claiming that the iPhone 6 should arrive at your doorstep between September 16 and 19. Whichever date that will be is also the date the iPhone 6 will reach ...

    Spotify has proven that even though music streaming wasn't popular a couple of years ago, it is now. The company has gained a significant amount of customer base in Europe, and it is clearly just getting started. Offering free ad-based music on smartphones is probably one of the coolest updates the company has offered lately, but Windows Phone users were deprived of this feature until now. Spotify has just updated its application for Windows Phone, and among the updates, you can now stream music for free. Yes, free involves a couple of ads here and there, you won't be able to sync your ...

    Even though the smartwatch has gone off to a slow start, that doesn't mean that there isn't a lot of promise in this market. With devices like the Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R in the pipeline, it's clear that we're just scratching the surface when it comes to design and features, though these are not the only devices to look forward to later this year. ASUS has spent the last couple of weeks teasing what we can expect from the company at IFA 2014. Among the devices we've seen featured, the hottest one is the company's smartwatch offering, and today we find another teaser about it. The ...

    The biggest challenge we face every day with smartphones and tablets is the fact that we grew up with buttons, and not with a piece of glass that shows you one. If typing on a glass display provided you with a better experience, keyboards would be dead, and that same example can be used for video game controllers. We've seen Microsoft Research look for ways to solve this problem through haptic feedback, but Apple might have found a smarter way to do it. Apple's new patent focuses on creating a flexible display that can bend in order to create physical buttons whenever needed. A couple of ...

    If you've noticed, we don't pay much attention to the literature that comes with each smartphone that we unbox. Surely if this is your first smartphone, the best way to start is with the user manual, but more than a few of us have been there and done that a couple of times already. Apple would be on the list of companies that provides you with the least amount of literature possible, but these documents can be quite revealing if leaked ahead of time. If you've followed Apple launches over the last couple of years, you'll notice that the launch date of its products is always used either on ...

    Microsoft hasn't had much fun trying to sell its Windows RT variant of the Surface. We've already discussed how this has nothing to do with the hardware, but really with Windows RT, though there are a few here and there that find the experience to be just fine. If you're in the market for a tablet that runs something that looks and feels like Windows, and your demand isn't for some top-notch professional apps, Microsoft might have just cut you a deal. Microsoft has just slashed $100 off its Surface 2 models, which would leave the basic Wi-Fi 32GB variant at just $350, then for the 64GB ...
