    As we heard on January 13, Beats Music has officially launched in the US today, with all of its 20 million tracks. For the moment, iPhone users have the advantage of using the service first, as the iOS client is already available to download. There are also links on Beats Music's home page for Google and Windows stores, but these lead to nowhere for the moment. The regular subscription goes for $9.99 per month but if you're on AT&T "you can get the Beats Music Family Plan with 5 accounts across 10 devices for $14.99/month. So everyone in your family can listen to what’s right for ...

    The end of the year in tech is already dominated by lists - best of, worst of, top 5, bottom 50 - you get the picture. So rather than foist another array of numeric bullet points upon you on our last podcast of the year, we've decided to dedicate this show to you, the listener ... and more specifically, to those of you who've written to us. That's right - just like we did back in the summer, for the last show of 2013 we're focusing entirely on listener mail on this, episode 076 of the Pocketnow Weekly.

    When Apple Maps turned out to be a fiasco in the early days, the company's CEO issued an apology letter at the end of September 2012, in which Tim Cook also suggested some alternatives to Apple's own solution. Among the recommendations, there was a line to "use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app". Soon after, Nokia made its own Here Maps available for iOS users; however, the app has been silently pulled. "We have made the decision to remove our HERE Maps app from the Apple App Store because recent changes to iOS 7 ...

    20 million Taiwan Dollars -- which is, today, roughly $668,000 -- is the amount the Fair Trade Commission got Apple fined in Taiwan for, according to a statement on Wednesday. The reason for the fine is, according to the TFTC, Apple's interfering with pricing of mobile service providers and handset distributors. To be specific, article 18 of Taiwan's Fair Trade Act has been violated by Apple, who reportedly told Taiwan's three main operators exactly how much to sell iPhones for. Apple also reportedly asked also asked Chunghwa Telecom Co., Far Eastone Telecommunication Co. and Taiwan ...

    Last week, Motorola dropped an unexpected holiday surprise, and we saw the return of that killer $150-off deal for no-contract Moto X sales. This was the same offer Motorola attempted for Cyber Monday, and after that effort failed, brought the deal back for a couple days earlier this month. Seeing these savings arrive for a three-peat got me thinking about a couple different things. For one, based on the reaction I was seeing, that $150 makes a huge difference in the phone's appeal. At $500, you've got a lot of factors to weigh, but at $350, the Moto X is a tough deal to turn down. I also ...

    Ever since iOS 7 was released on September 18 for compatible devices, users of the Apple OS didn't really have too many options at a complete jailbreaking solution. However, thanks to the team behind evasi0n, you can now experiment with evasi0n7, the iOS 7.x untethered Jailbreak. You have to have a Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.6 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64) machine to be able to apply this to your iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4. However, as the official page warns, "many Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7" so you'll have to acknowledge the usual ...

    We're slowly leaving another year behind us, and what a year 2013 was! We couldn't have asked for more, yet, we're excitedly looking forward to seeing what 2014 will bring, and we know it's going to be even better. Smartphones, tablets, phablets, curved screens, convertibles, fingerprint readers, acquisitions, companies rising, falling, and I've just realized I could fill the entire page with keywords descriptive for 2013.

    Samsung always outsells Apple's iPhone when it introduces the latest Galaxy flagship; that's mainly because their announcement and availability policies are leapfrogging, so it's just normal for the newest Android to perform better than the older iPhone. ...and then the iPhone outsells the usually six-seven-month old Android when it is introduced, so there's really nothing to be surprised about when it comes to the chart below. Regardless of who's on the top spot at any moment, Samsung and Apple are comfortably leading the pack; when it comes to the beginning of Q3 2013 though, Apple ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Earlier today, while we were busy hanging with some of you fine folks on the latest episode of the Pocketnow Live, a lot was going down elsewhere. Our LG G Flex review was in the final polishing stages; our own Taylor Martin was kicking out some coverage on Motorola's mold-breaking budget wonder, the Moto G; and friend of the show Marques Brownlee was interviewing Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola Mobility. All that activity demands a followup, of course, and what better venue for an end-of-week wrapup than the Pocketnow Weekly podcast? We can't think of any, either. So whether you're here ...

    Things are going faster and smoother for Apple when it comes to propagating the latest version of the company's OS than, say, for Google, but the two companies are on a totally different strategy. While Android 4.4 KitKat is running on 1.1% of compatible Google devices, Apple's iOS 7 powers 74 percent, a nice adoption rate to have for the latest iteration of a platform. Of course, iOS 7 was announced and released earlier than Android 4.4 KitKat, giving it a relatively large head-start! Still, with the latest figures in, as of December 1, 2013, 22% of Apple's compatible devices still run ...
