    Apple's iPad event for 2014 is just a couple of days away, and as is customary with every Apple product, there is a lot of speculation over what Apple will announce. The amount of rumors surrounding a thinner iPad are the strongest, but at a time when every OEM is struggling with a stagnant tablet market, we wonder if Apple will make the mistake of keeping things conservative this year. Watch this week's Top 5 as we discuss our predictions for what to expect for Apple's event this Thursday. We have a feeling that there will be more than just iPads announced at this event. Other rumors ...

    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 ...

    Love it or question it, the Surface Pro 3 is one of the most functional tablets in the market. Surely it's not perfect, but it does provide users with more bang for their buck if you want to avoid the need to purchase a tablet and computer separately. One of its coolest features is its digital pen input, and Microsoft is about to address one of its most requested needs. Some inside sources claim that Microsoft is about to launch a separate application that will give users the option to control the pen pressure sensitivity of the Surface Pro 3. The update will actually turn the control ...

    The debate of which voice assistant came first is still a shady topic. While many agree that Siri was the service that made the idea mainstream, we do know that Google's Voice Search has existed for a bit longer, and even though Microsoft's Cortana is the newest in the crowd, we all remember Microsoft's Voice Command from the Pocket PC days. Still, if you leave history aside and ask yourself which service is currently better, some experts claim to have a winner. A marketing consulting firm by the name of Stone Temple claims to have found Google Now's voice search to be significantly ...

    Samsung is on to something big with the Galaxy Note 4, and we're not just referring to its size. The device was highly praised by our team as we got some hands-on time with it at IFA in Berlin, and we'll admit it's one of the devices we're anticipating most for this holiday season. If you thought we were the only ones excited, think again, as it seems to be significantly delayed in certain parts of the world. Samsung had committed to have the Galaxy Note 4 arrive to customers in the UK on October 10, but it seems that those plans just got ditched. Samsung Mobile UK has just replied to a ...

    We're just a week a way from an Apple event that we all assume has to do with iPads and iOS 8.1. We've seen some interesting leaks that show iOS 8.1 launching new services like Apple Pay, but it also seems that there could be more under the hood. That same developer that uncovered the Apple Pay leaks has discovered more new stuff to come, and this time it has to do with iPads. At the moment, every single credible source claims that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not be launched until 2015, and the main reasons point to the fact that Apple prefers to meet the iPhone 6 Plus demand before ...

    It's funny to admit that no matter where you go, anyone that notices that you're using an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus will most likely ask you if your phone has bent. This is to say that yes, "bendgate" was a huge driving force of bad publicity for the iPhone 6 Plus, though you'd think it would be bad enough to affect Apple's demand for the device. Actually, the reality is quite the opposite, and even though Apple hasn't provided any solid iPhone 6 Plus numbers, some credible sources have just detailed its status. According to the Wall Street Journal, the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is ...

    Microsoft has been doing some interesting moves to extend the cross-platform support of its existing services. We've seen how the company has brought Office Mobile to iOS, and to Android to some extent as well. We've also seen a lot of Microsoft Research gain a lot of popularity for its new projects recently, and today we see more of it. Microsoft has just announced XIM, a new cross-platform photo sharing service, that's actually more than what it sounds. At first we thought this was just another SnapChat competitor, but it turns out to be something unique. It allows you to share photos ...

    Samsung is definitely not having its best couple of quarters when it comes to its economics, but we wish this was the only drama the Korean giant faces right now. We've seen the continuous patent lawsuits that the company has lost against Apple, and we also know this is not the only lawsuit Samsung faces. NVIDIA is another company that's currently battling Samsung over patents, and some recent developments might complicate things even more. NVIDIA has recently announced that the ITC (US International Trade Commission) has voted to investigate whether certain of Samsung's recent devices ...

    For some, there's nothing cooler than to be able to immerse yourself in the game you enjoy the most. Playing games on a touch screen can be cumbersome as you either cover the screen with your fingers, or you simply can't enjoy the lack of physical controls. Samsung is trying to solve that with its Gear VR, though new reports claim that it isn't succeeding yet. Reports claim that the Gear VR is considerably overheating after around 25 minutes of use. It is definitely uncomfortable for any product to overheat after use, but for this to be a device that you wear on your head, a lot needs to ...

    Apple made a big deal about its new Apple Pay service when it announced the iPhone 6. The service shouldn't be out until the next couple of weeks, though we're sure that Apple's iPad event will shed some light on October 16. We still question if this service will take off or follow on Google's footsteps, but today's rumors show that Apple is still full-steam ahead. A developer has just discovered some hidden options for Apple Pay buried within iOS 8.1 beta. We did hear that iOS 8.1 would be the official launch of Apple Pay, though the first beta didn't show any information to validate ...

    Apple has just announced its press invitations for an event to happen on October 16, and historically this has everything to do with Macs and iPads. If you're wondering what changes are coming to the new iPads, we've heard that they're getting significantly thin, but there's nothing better than a visual demo of what to expect. A very credible Vietnamese source has just leaked some photos of a dummy of Apple's new iPad Air, which we're currently dubbing the iPad Air 2. You'll notice that this tablet is significantly thinner, as the source claims that it's just 7mm thick when compared to ...
