    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 ...

    We're in the middle of a fantastic time to be a smartphone owner if you're a music lover. Manufacturers are placing more of a focus on audio performance, and you have a greater array of options than ever before when it comes to choosing how you get your music, whether we're talking about streaming or digital downloads. There's a flip side to that greater availability, though, and all these options at our disposal mean that the companies behind them need to work that much harder to stand out from their competition. Despite its stature, Apple may be feeling the heat, and new rumors claim ...

    iPhone deals are odd at this time of year, and that's mainly because Apple is not open to discounting anything. It's common to see this happen close to an iPhone announcement, but we don't expect the next-generation iPhone to launch until June. The cool thing is that there are companies out there that don't mind daring Apple's mentality every now and then, and there are some sweet iPhone deals from Virgin Mobile today. Right now you can get the 16GB iPhone 5s for $385, the 32GB model for $455, and the 64GB model for $525, which is insane, and specially in that 64GB model, which usually ...

    Apple's launch of iBeacon has come with a little skepticism from the market. We've seen the company launch the service at certain MLB Stadiums across the United States, with some dubbing it as a cool feature, and others annoyed at the fact that they just want to go watch the game. Still, the project is still a work in progress, and it's soon about to expand into new usage scenarios. On one hand we've just learned that Apple is ready to deploy the service in NBA arenas. The Golden State Warriors became the first NBA team to adopt this recently as a trial, and we should be seeing this ...

    Smartphones don't exist in a vacuum, and while we direct the majority of our efforts towards bringing you information about the latest hardware and software, the industry that produces this gear is often fascinating to discuss on its own. When we're talking about individuals who have shaped the evolution of smartphones as we know them, anyone's short list of key figures is bound to include Steve Jobs – and as such, we've been fascinated by the biographical projects that have sprung up in the years since his untimely death in 2011. Last year brought us the movie Jobs starring Ashton ...

    Ever since the dawn of the iPhone, we've seen how the glass made by corning has done a decent job in durability. Surely it's not perfect, and we've seen how Apple is now investing heavily in sapphire glass as well, but that's not necessarily shatterproof either. A case maker named Sir Lancelot’s Armor has made an effort to provide us with a "bulletproof" solution, and there's a video to show the results. Now bare in mind that even the Motorola devices are made of Kevlar, which is a material used for bulletproof vests, and that doesn't necessarily make the casing bulletproof. In that ...
