    Apple is rolling in the dough and it wants to show that's willing to make a small investment to roll in more dough. After all, it has investors to impress. In the US at least, if you're shopping on the Apple Store site or hope to order for in-store pickup in the Saint Nick of time, you're in luck. Apple is offering free next day delivery if you have you've checked out by 2pm on December 23. FREE! The deadline is universal across the country, but mind your package destination — the site doesn't tell you this, but if you ask an Apple Store rep, that's where the cut-off point applies. If ...

    Remember back in the summer? Not this summer, last one! In the depths of outdoors vacationing season, our Pocketnow Weekly podcast crew wandered into the woods and found goTenna, a Kickstarter project that aimed to provide an interpersonal, long-distance cell network alternative when everything hits the fan in the great nowheres. After 15 months of extra tests, tweaking and regulatory passes, the first units shipped out mid-October. What's more, it looks like the comapny's past the "making due" point with backlogs and is now processing and shipping orders in real time. Okay, so maybe ...

    The do-it-all inhaler/camera's back again on the discount table. It seems that HTC has been really amping up its holiday spirit with these Tuesday Hot Deals. Sure, the first real rounds came during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday era and then we've heard more of a pitter-patter since then. And we should also note that the best discount took place well before this madness — late in October. But behold anyway, as the HTC RE camera is now up for a 60 percent price cut today, down to $79.60 — that is, while supplies last. Mind you, when HTC held the RE a couple weeks ago at $100, we were ...

    Analysts were setting up the expectations for Apple to make a killing this holiday season. And indeed, a couple of Apple products have taken the cake for the whole of online Black Friday sales this year. But while the Apple Watch is expected to lead the way for wearables for the next while, we weren't expecting a hot holiday forecast from Apple's troubled smartwatch coming this iteration around. It seems that the yuletide does raise all boats as FBR Capital Markets reported on Friday to investors that the Apple Watch is slowly gaining "momentum in the field over the last few ...

    Apple is a huge money mover: it knows how to make money and it uses that money to make more money. Morgan Stanley is also a huge money mover: it gives businesses money, trades money for money and makes bold statements about money for money money money. Also, money. Morgan Stanley seems to think that Apple is setting up for a huge holiday quarter this year based off of some disclosures in its last quarterly report. All told, some $36.8 billion worth of commitments — that's planned spending. Apple is also planning on capital expenditure projects for to facilitate more production across ...

    With autumn very much making its presence felt, and the last days of 2014 looming ahead, the mobile electronics market is about to make another of its regular shifts, temporarily moving away from a time dominated by launch after launch, and instead focusing more on getting these products into our hands. We've just come off a couple big months of launches, led in by IFA in early September, and peppered with iPhone, iPad, and Nexus announcements in the weeks that followed. But now with the holiday season arriving as an unavoidable juggernaut, we're about to see the steady flow of new devices ...

    The smartphone you carry on New Year's Eve has a big say in how the night will be remembered. (And not just because it's an opportunity to show off your newest holiday acquisition to your friends, you materialistic fop.) If you take pictures with your smartphone even semi-regularly, you're bound to do it twice as often on a landmark event like New Year's Eve - and so the phone you carry will play a big role in how well the evening is documented. As tech reporters, the Pocketnow review team is lucky enough to have access to a slew of purchased and loaner smartphones, and while we're all old ...

    As of last month, I've been doing this mobile technology gig for four years. Playing and tinkering with new mobile devices has become more than just an awesome job, more than an obsession or hobby. As cliché as it sounds, it's a way of life. I'm always messing with things, tweaking my home screens, searching for new apps and services, trying new games, reading tech news, poking and prodding, and thinking about what I'm going to say about a product once the final review time comes. All of these are things I do without thinking – it's innate. If I'm not doing them, chances are: I have my ...

    It's nearly here: Black Friday. That horrendous questionable "holiday" tradition wherein hundreds of thousands of Americans, fresh from giving thanks for their blessings and good fortune over massive piles of food, flood the streets to acquire more (material) blessings by spending as little of their good fortune as possible. Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year for a very good reason: retailer discounts are often outrageous, and locations open absurdly early on this day-long celebration of unbridled capitalism. The media has a field day covering these early-morning ...

    If you're anything like us you probably have Santa on speed-dial this time of the year but since everybody is busy sending him calls and texts you're better off relying on e-mail -- and your client's autocomplete feature which immediately kicks in to fill out his entire e-mail address. But what to ask for with so many great gadgets out this year? To tell you the truth we were happy when Santa contacted us for helping you make up your minds. We've put together a list of devices which you should consider this holiday season. Before you check it: it's not a list of the best devices out there ...
