    "Welcome to the Dark Side". I'm sure you've already pulled your shiny new iPhone out of the box, and if there's one thing Apple knows how to do, is give you an awesome unboxing experience. I'm sure you're already proud of what you bought and how long it took you to get it. Now the reason why I welcome all my friends to the Dark Side with their new Apple products is because we live in a polarized world. If you were to judge an iPhone by what you read in most publications, you've got the buggiest most scratch friendly phone in the market. Still, once you lift your face from the computer ...

    It is one of those rare cases when Google is releasing an application for a competing platform first but, nonetheless, it is out there and it's called YouTube Capture. We're sure the status quo won't remain like this for long and Android users will get the app very soon, but, until then, you'll have to have an iPhone to get it. The app offers a simple way of shooting videos and uploading them to YouTube, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter, simultaneously. You can also do some basic editing on your iPhone, like color correction, stabilization, trimming, and adding music tracks. Not only that, ...

    You can buy a 16GB iPhone 5 from Apple for $199 in a two-year contract or you can add one-, or two-hundred dollars if you are looking for more storage: 32- and 64GB respectively. If you want to save some money this holiday season while still getting Apple's latest and greatest, Best Buy has you covered. The retailer shaves off $50 from Apple's price in the iPhone 5, going at Best Buy for $149.99 with a two-year contract. The additional $100 remains valid for more storage but the end prices will still be $50 cheaper than over at Apple's own store. The iPhone 4S gets the same treatment for ...

    Has AT&T fallen under the spell of the holiday season? With Thanksgiving almost upon us, could the carrier be taking a moment to think about the millions of subscribers who keep it in business, and deciding to give them a little something extra this year to be thankful for? That's the impression we're getting, at least, upon hearing that AT&T appears to be eliminating the very last of its limitations on the use of FaceTime over cellular connections. You might remember that, when iOS 6 first arrived, AT&T allowed FaceTime over cellular, but only for users on its shared data ...

    Yesterday, about 24 hours ago, we reported that Nokia has released its -- now rebranded -- HERE maps for iOS, making it available for iPhone and iPad. Today, 24 hours later, the application is already the fourth application in the top free iPhone app list on iTunes, way above popular titles like Pandora, Spotify, Twitter, or even some Apple apps. After iOS 6 removed Google Maps from the system, users of the iPhone 5 -- as well as previous version of the iPhone and iPad that were updated to iOS 6 -- were left with Apple's own maps and some alternatives proposed by Apple itself after the ...

    The Here maps were announced by Nokia last week and we knew to expect an iOS iteration, among others. It appears that the application is now available in the iTunes App Store for both the iPhone and the iPad. When Apple's CEO Tim Cook apologized for the poor experience in iOS 6, he offered some alternatives available in the App Store until Apple's own mapping solutions become what they should have been. Here maps by Nokia is such an alternative mapping solution (now that Google Maps is no longer the default and a new iteration is yet to arrive) and, according to the description, it brings ...

    Just the other day, while exchanging some cool ideas with Michael Fisher, he told me about how awesome it would be if phones had flashes for front-facing cameras. I, of course, didn't necessarily like the idea (because you barely use it and it would crank up the costs) but said it would be nice if they turned the screen into a flash (like Photo Booth on Macs turns the screen bright white when you snap a picture). The latest version of Camera+ for the iPhone does exactly that, among other new things. When switching to the front facing camera and having the "flash" on, the screen will light ...

    Turn-by-turn voice navigation is a feature in iOS 6 that was not available in all countries at launch. While Apple's own website still says the feature will arrive in Australia this month, it has already been turned on according to recent reports. The feature should have been available in October but according to ex-Apple-manager Scott Forstall, it just wasn't ready in time. If you live in Australia an you are running iOS 6 on your iPhone 5, 4S, and 4, you can now enjoy this feature. Apple is continuously working on improving the map experience in iOS after a rather bumpy start (where the ...

    What's that, Motorola? Brand new mobile juice pack for the previous-gen iPhone? Here's an interesting one for your Sunday: Motorola seems to feel the urge to underline the battery capacity inside the Droid RAZR MAXX HD and its battery life, while comparing it to an Apple iPhone. Whether it is an iPhone 4 or a 4S is up to you to decide, but Motorola probably missed the memo that there's a newer Apple phone on the market. We know that the RAZR MAXX (sans HD) which we reviewed offers an excellent battery life and we even wondered why one would go for the MAXX but it looks like Motorola is ...

    The iPhone 4S lost Apple's flagship status once the iPhone 5 was unveiled on September 12, 2012, and available shortly after. Announced on May 3, 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S III sold more units than the iPhone 4S (unveiled on October 4, 2011) for the first time in Q3 2012, according to Strategy Analytics. According to the analysts' research, Samsung sold 18 million Galaxy S III units last quarter compared to 16.2 million iPhone 4S devices, "as consumers temporarily held off purchases in anticipation of a widely expected iPhone 5 upgrade at the end of the quarter". The iPhone 4S, being ...
