    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the ...

    The rumor mill suggests that there is a four-inch, cheap iPhone on the way, maybe as early as this spring. The prospect of a four-inch iPhone has garnered some admittedly strong opinions among some tech journalists whose initials happen to be “AD”, but that was one of my admittedly close-minded moments.

    Apple's getting into the home stretch of development for iOS 9.3, and a couple days back we saw the company release its latest beta build for the developer community.

    Adobe Flash helped make the internet what it is today, bringing us streaming video, interactive games, and –yes- some very annoying ads.
