    Amazon has proven to be one of the most unpredictable companies in the world lately. From bashing tablets with its e-readers, to launching tablets, to claiming it wouldn't launch a phone, to actually launching one, there seems to be no limit to the scope Amazon plans to reach lately. The only frontier we haven't heard Amazon working on is wearables, but that could change very soon. You may not recognize the name Babak Parviz on the street, but if we told you he's one of the project leaders of Google Glass, then things start to ring a bell. Parviz is also famous for leading another Google X ...

    Sony has been doing a great job in regaining some popularity with its Xperia line-up. Devices like the Sony Xperia Z2 and the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact have gained a lot of praise from our editorial team, and with the recent rumors of the Xperia Z3, the company doesn't seem to be ready to disappoint. If you're wondering exactly how big the next Sony flagship will be, well, the answer is pretty big. Leaked photos now show the Sony Xperia z3 being compared against the original Samsung Galaxy Note. Yes, the Galaxy Note is no longer the biggest phone in the market, but it does serve as a fair ...

    Aside from a couple of batteries exploding here and there, it's hard to hear that electronics are poising as a health risk to customers in any other way. We did see that Fitbit recalled its Force fitness tracker due to some dermatitis complaints from customers, but never have we seen products as big as a computer or a tablet giving customers issues like allergies, at least until today. A recent article found in Associated Press shows a specific case of an 11-year-old boy who discovered he was allergic to nickel after his extensive use with an iPad. His parents had purchased this iPad ...

    Most of us are expecting Apple to announce its new iPhone 6 lineup in September. Historically, that's been the month that Apple has used for iPhone launches over the last three years, and most of the rumors we've seen lately also agree with that prediction. Most of these rumors also indicate that both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch variant will be launched at the same time, but some new credible sources think otherwise. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has gained a lot of fame over the last couple of years for some Apple-related predictions, though not all of them being correct. ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Microsoft has done a decent job in growing Windows Phone into the third largest smartphone operating system. Yes, if we compared it in numbers against Android and iOS, there is still a lot of growing to do, but with all the improvements we se on Windows Phone 8.1, that should only be a matter of time. If you're curious to know in which countries Windows Phone excels in the most, the results are in. AdDuplex is usually in charge of providing monthly stats of how specific Windows Phone devices are doing in certain markets. In this occasion, the company decided to use their ad-based metric ...

    It's hard not to commend Google for the job the company has been doing in enhancing the services we consume through Android and even iOS at times. We've seen frequent updates to services like Google Now and YouTube over the last couple of weeks, and today Gmail takes a turn at some enhancements. The company is pushing an update that will provide you with a couple of new enhancements, including some Google Drive integration. The way Gmail and Google Drive will work together going forward is that you can attach Google Drive files easily while you're composing an email. Google will then ...

    As much as we've praised Google for Android L's design and fluidity, there are certain parts of the developer build that aren't perfect, and we're not talking about bugs. Android L continues to be "open source," but Google is adding tighter controls to the visual appeal of the user interface. One of these aspects is the fact that you still can't customize the buttons of the "quick settings" menu, though hopefully that might change before the final launch. A user recently posted a request on Android's issue tracker for Google to consider your ability to modify the buttons that appear on ...

    Apple hasn't been famous for being first at anything it has ever done. We know it didn't invent the computer, nor the smartphone, nor the MP3 player, and especially not the haptic feedback that we've been enjoying on smartphones since the early days of Windows Mobile. Still, Apple is famous for perfecting existing products and services in ways competitors have a hard time replicating, and it seems that the company's next frontier is haptic feedback. Reports from Asia claim that the iPhone 6 will include a new tactile motor that will apparently cost twice as much as the one found in the ...
