    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 ...

    One of the biggest contradictions of the Apple Watch is that even though Apple announced it in September, that's really the only thing that we received from Cupertino. Jony Ive did give us an extensive walkthrough over some of the features of the Apple Watch, but the video only left us with more questions than answers. Apple has silently updated the Apple Watch website and reveals a couple of the functions that the device will be able to do. Apple updated three key features on the website, which are time keeping, new ways to connect, and health and fitness. In the case of "time keeping," ...

    Google wouldn't be the first company that sells its products before its accessories are available, but given the level of demand for the Nexus 6, it is the most notorious. The biggest problem about buying Android smartphones is that the selection is so vast; it can be a challenge to find good accessories for them on launch date. Still, just as Google indulged Nexus 9 owners with the Folio keyboard case that it had teased weeks ago, the same goes for the Nexus 6. Google has just launched the Stand Folio Case that it had announced along with the Nexus 6 more than three weeks ago. If you ...

    One of our biggest concerns this year, is that even though Windows Phone 8.1 is the most mature version of Windows Phone ever, there is very little hardware to showcase it. Surely Microsoft has been busy acquiring Nokia's mobile division, and we can see that in how long it took the company to produce the first phone. The good thing is that credible sources claim this is about to change, and in decent quantities. AdDuplex is about to announce its official numbers for how Windows Phone has performed lately, but the company has decided to give us a few teasers before the announcement. The ...

    The OnePlus One is one of the most highly acclaimed smartphones of the year, not just because of its specs, but because you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to get one. Its only problem doesn't have anything to do with the hardware really, but mainly to do with its parent company as it continues to struggle in getting phones to its customers through invitations. We recently learned that you can get one through Amazon as long as you live in India, but now other customers are in for some luck. Believe it or not, while the rest of us still ask ourselves why the invitation system exists, ...

    OEMs are still hard at work to bring Android 5.0 Lollipop to existing flagship handsets. We already know that HTC is a few weeks away from sharing some love with us all, and we've already seen OEMs like Motorola beat Google to the punch in some cases. That said, we know that the Android space is full of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, and if you're sporting a Galaxy S5, you might be in luck. An early build of Android 5.0 Lollipop was recently leaked at XDA-Developers, and the ROM is actually fully flashable if you don't mind voiding your warranty and exploring bugs here and there. Sadly the ...

    Apple isn't really one of those companies that likes to admit defeat, but we could say that the iPhone 5c is an exception. We remember how Tim Cook admitted that the iPhone 5c didn't meet sales expectations last year, and we also know that Apple sat on a ton of inventory early in the sales period of this device's launch. It's safe to assume that Apple still has too much inventory to admit to, as reports already predict its end of life. Taiwan's Industrial and Commercial Times is already stating that Apple will end production of the iPhone 5c by the middle of 2015. The argument is mainly ...

    After a very dramatic end to the relationship between Apple and GT Advanced, you'd think that the whole sapphire project came to an abrupt end. In a way it did, or at least for this year, since we don't really have any Apple product sporting the new display technology that we showed you months ago. That said, Apple has already shown the world that the Apple Watch will sport sapphire in its entry video, and it seems the supplier has just emerged. If you remember, we recently talked about this new $2.6 billion display factory that Foxconn is currently building through its subsidiary InnoLux. ...

We then talk about Sony and the company's strategy to fix its smartphone slump. We end today's show talking about Apple's market cap, and how it just reached $700 billion. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Google Devices and Activity dashboard keeps a tab on how you access ...

    Apple seems to be drifting farther apart from the original partnership it started with Google on the original iPhone. Surely Google has brought significant competition to Apple on the Android space, but some of these changes have actually been positive for Apple in the long run. We all remember the disastrous move to Apple Maps, but that doesn't change the fact that Google Maps wasn't allowed to launch its own app in the end, and the same can be said about YouTube updates after Apple decided to stop bundling it. Rumors have it that more changes are to come, but these ones might not be as ...

    Samsung hasn't really gained a lot of fame for its media alternatives. Just recently we learned that its ChatOn messaging service might cease to exist in the next coming months, and we also saw how its Media Hub service simply disappeared. Samsung has decided to re-invent some of these services with its new Milk Music and Milk Video services, but it seems even those won't be free from trouble. Milk Studios is currently suing Samsung over the name "Milk" being used for media offerings, and given the fact that Milk Studios is a photography and media company, the lawsuit makes sense after the ...

    Tablets have proven to be a very odd product category, but then again, so were smartphones before 2007. Most of us that have been using smartphones and tablets since before they became popular remember how long it took for both products to gain traction, though the difference here is that smartphones have continued to grow, and tablets are oddly slowing down. New market estimates for the rest of the year aren't painting a pretty picture, and it seems the iPad is mostly to blame. IDC has already revealed its estimates for the tablet market by the end of this year, and its analysts are ...
