    Even with Apple's level of secrecy, it's hard to denny that all the iPhone 5 rumors showed us that Apple is getting really sloppy at it. We've seen the internet flooded with rumors on the iPhone 6, and these have given us a lot of detail on what to expect from both of the smartphones being planned. We've debated the possibility of two larger iPhones coming soon, but recent leaks continue to prove that Apple is off to change its own way of doing things. A Japanese Magazine has just published the probable schematics of both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models that are being ...

    With so many rumors of Apple bringing a sapphire display into its next iOS device line-up, we've heard of the continuous efforts the company is doing in order to guarantee it'll be able to deliver. The company has slowly begun to incorporate sapphire glass into things like the glass surface of the camera, or the glass surface of TouchID, but these are small steps when compared to building every single display from sapphire. Still, Apple's need to differentiate its products is big, and we're hearing more rumors of how the company plans to make this happen. Even though we still haven't seen ...

    With wearables becoming "a thing" lately, we've seen attempts from Samsung, Pebble, LG and even Google. The results are definitely promising, as companies like Motorola have figured out a way to make these watches look elegant, and not necessarily something that only a teenager would use. The only company we haven't seen actually launch a product is Apple, and given all the rumors of the iWatch lately, we continue to wonder how Cupertino plans to differentiate its offering. According to the Financial Times, Apple has been in direct contact with many employees from Swiss watchmaker Hublot, ...

    We've heard it was coming. Rumors started closing in on a date. And this morning in San Francisco, Microsoft came through and delivered, announcing the availability of its Office suite of applications for the iPad. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are all going live in the App Store today, with full touch interfaces optimized for the iPad's screen. There's no sign of any new edition of Outlook, however. Microsoft is presenting these apps with a freemium model. Anyone can download the Office apps for viewing documents, but if you want to create or edit, you'll need an Office 365 subscription. ...

    A few weeks back, we started seeing new motion in an otherwise long-dormant story: the release of Microsoft Office for Apple's iPad. We'd been hearing about the idea forever, but it never seemed to go anywhere. But then last month rumors started claiming that a launch could occur by summer, followed last week by the suggestion that we wouldn't have to wait nearly so long, and Microsoft could unveil the suite at a March 27 event. Tonight the same rumor is back, with new sources doubling-down on Office for iPad launching tomorrow. This latest update comes to us from The Wall Street Journal, ...

    Some interesting news came across the feeds the other day. According to Billboard, Apple was considering a couple of new ideas. The first was considering opening a music streaming service as a direct competitor to Spotify. The streaming service would be subscription based and used as a platform to drive music sales. The other, far more intriguing prospect was the idea of putting iTunes on Android. If you’re dizzy from the double take, that’s ok. Just take some Dramamine and buckle in. This could get bumpy. Apple launching a music streaming service is not exactly a surprise. The ...

    We recently learned that the Federal Trades Commission has reached a verdict when it comes to the case of customers against Apple over in-app purchases. We've even seen Apple make significant changes in its App Store procedures in order to avoid these problems with iOS 7.1. Still, precautions weren't all that Apple had to comply with, as there's obviously money involved. Apple has just sent an email to the affected users that reads: Dear iTunes account owner,  Apple is committed to providing parents and kids with a great experience on the App Store. We review all app content before ...

    Apple's obsession for thin and light has been predominant ever since the launch of the original iPod more than a decade ago. It's definitely a pleasant experience to carry a phone in your pocket that you can barely feel, and Apple keeps pushing the bar in this department every two years or so, and a new patent reveals what the company might be trying next. Apple's new patent filing experiments with split camera technology. The idea is that one sensor would capture luma, or brightness, data, while the other could capture chroma, or color, information. The name of the patent is "Electronic ...

    The launch of Apple's first-generation iPhone marked a turning point in the smartphone industry. Back then smartphones were business tools, and those of us who followed them did so as a hobby, and not because even this medium was a big industry as well. Smartphones back then barely sold in the millions, and one device changed it all. According to Forbes, Apple today should be celebrating it's 500 millionth iPhone sold, which is a huge milestone if you consider that when Apple launched the iPhone 4 in 2010, Steve Jobs was publicly celebrating that Apple had sold 100 million iPhones in four ...

    It's amazing how far $35 can take you lately. Surely for some, this is just a round of cappuccinos with friends, but for Google this is something else entirely. We've seen how the company has revolutionized the concept of streaming lately with the Chromecast. Not necessarily because Google invented it, because it didn't, but because its figured out how to create a product that can grow beyond what it was originally intended to be. The company has launched an app called Photowall today for iOS, which turns your Chromecast into a photo frame in a very neat way. Yes, it's odd that it's ...

    As we get closer to the announcement of the All New HTC One, and to the launch of the Galaxy S5, it's only normal that additional leaks of the next iPhone get louder. The name of the game in competition is that those who generate the most buzz get the most mindshare, and we know how Apple likes to play that game, even though it never admits it. Today we get some additional leaks of what to expect for the iPhone 6, those these are different than what you think. Apple is not famous for building dummy prototypes of its products. We don't recall ever walking into a store and finding a dummy of ...

    When talking about smartphones, Apple and Blackberry are somewhat alone in that they make their own  hardware. Phones powered by Microsoft's OS and Android are built by OEMs like HTC, Nokia, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and others. Back in the day, major companies like Dell, HP, Compaq and others would outsource the production of their devices to OEMs. Over time, these OEMs began to gain popularity and eventually brought hardware carrying their own brand to the market. Ironically, Compaq, Dell, HP, and others have all but gotten out of the smartphone/PDA game, having been replaced by the OEMs ...
