    Our early impressions of the Galaxy S7 have been pretty positive, but following the comment reactions to our articles and videos, there's one general thread of criticism. Is this really a Galaxy S7, or is this a Galaxy S6S? Samsung's hardware strategy does seem to be following in Apple's footsteps. The S6 was a drastic change to the aesthetics of the Galaxy S line. The S7 looks nearly identical, but the guts of the phone are improved. This has been Apple's iPhone strategy since the 3G. Instead of trying to impress with a fresh new design every year, this tick-tock schedule insures that a ...

    While the tech community watches the drama unfold between Apple and the FBI over the phone used by the San Bernardino shooter, there are other cases working their way through our legal system. Yesterday a federal judge in Brooklyn ruled against the FBI in a situation where law enforcement wanted Apple to unlock the phone of a suspected drug dealer. In his ruling, Judge James Orenstein said "The relief the government seeks is unavailable because Congress has considered legislation that would achieve the same result but has not adopted it", referencing recent legislation that Congress failed ...

    In today’s installment of the never-ending “who supports who” saga concerning Apple’s ongoing opposition to a San Bernardino court order, the tech giant adds another big industry name to its corner, while the FBI manages to unite the entire field of Republican presidential contenders behind it. After Google, Facebook, BlackBerry and Microsoft, Verizon finally weighed in on the matter of device encryption vs terrorist resistance, highlighting its commitment to “protecting customer privacy.” The CEO of the largest American wireless service provider, Lowell McAdam, went on record ...

    The world is basically split in half when it comes to Apple’s recent clash with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US courts and other government institutions in regards to breaking the encryption on an iPhone 5c owned by a San Bernardino mass murderer at the time of the December 2015 massacre. There are those radically opposing Cupertino’s stance, arguing the tech giant is siding with terrorists. Meanwhile, many of the industry’s shot callers unconditionally support Tim Cook in his fight for online and mobile privacy. Finally, some voices are positioned in the middle, asking for ...

    As defiant to common sense as it may seem, there are people in the United States who genuinely value Donald Trump’s often scandalous opinions, leading the controversial businessman to a now predictable Republican Presidential nomination. While Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery doesn’t expressly cite the orange-haired politician as inspiration for his latest office code change/obvious publicity stunt, the timing of the Arizona boycott sure feels suspicious. Regardless of the master puppeteer’s identity, the reasons the Attorney’s Office in question “will discontinue ...

    Another day, another celebrity feud for businessman, media personality and shocking Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump. After Barack Obama, Rosie O’Donnell, Martha Stewart, Megyn Kelly and even Pope Francis himself, the ultimate winner of the South Carolina primary election predictably found fault with Tim Cook’s unyielding stance on mobile device encryption. Apple’s CEO publicly stated only a few days ago his behemoth of a tech company will oppose the FBI’s requests of building a so-called backdoor into the iPhone of a San Bernardino shooter in order to harvest ...

    Apple is offering more people another way to pay for that new iPhone that they've been thinking about getting, but can't afford to tank their bank accounts to attain. In addition to the existing upgrade program the company currently offers, it is now also accepting trade-ins of Android, Windows or older Apple smartphones and is giving either up to $350 of striaght-up in-store credit or a discounted installment rate. The initial iPhone Upgrade Program makes an 16GB iPhone 6s with AppleCare+ available to buyers for $32.41 per month without interest. After 24 payments, the buyer owns the ...

    Data privacy advocates, including the vast majority of top-tier smartphone manufacturers, have been dealt several heavy blows by authorities in New York and California, as well as UK law enforcement organizations, all of which seek a dangerous end to mobile encryption in the name of the greater good and the war against terrorism. But nothing spelled doom and gloom for protectors of regular people’s personal information quite like yesterday’s US judge ruling that Apple must “assist” the FBI in probing an iPhone 5c belonging to one of the two San Bernardino shooters. Only CEO Tim ...

    The race is still on for the all-important title of the first Western-popular mobile payment service to land in the world’s largest smartphone market, but despite Samsung’s best efforts, it seems Apple will ultimately prevail. Then again, Apple Pay can’t possibly get the head start it was gunning for in China anymore, as Samsung Pay should spread from Korea and the United States in “early 2016” as well, likely as soon as next week. If that ETA pans out, iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches will have barely been able to support on-the-go transactions and simple and secure in-app ...

    The sorry financial state of tech conglomerate Sharp has left few options for its creditors and potential acquirers in Japan. But Taiwan-based Foxconn sees a chance to gain a brand name and a crack at making products for its own profit. Chairman Terry Gou told press that the company had signed for prioritized negotiating rights with Sharp as part of a bid to take over the company. Sharp released a statement contrary to Gou's assertion, but indicated it would be negotiating with Foxconn through the end of the month. Inside sources say that Sharp currently favors a Foxconn proposal worth ...

    Mixpanel's latest tracking survey shows that a healthy contingent of iPhone users don't want to make an upgrade that will strain their hands. After publicized cases of "texting thumb" making the news and in a stark face-off against the growing trend of the growing phone, data says more than 37 percent of iPhone toters have a device dating back to at least 2013. The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were the last four-inch mobile devices we got from Cupertino before the stretch to a 4.7 inch minimum. The former had the most share at 18 percent of all iPhones while the latter registered nearly 5.5 ...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook took a couple of hours to deliver the state of the company to his employees. Along with celebrating another fantastic holiday sales season, teasing the second office campus for a January 2017 ribbon-cutting, expanding employee benefits and more, Cook had some interesting outlooks for its mobile hardware and services. The executive said that the iPhone is the "greatest business of the future," perhaps for decades. Apple has made India its number one emerging market target with plans to bring official retail presence there. It will extend its presence in China as well. ...

    Porsche has a certain image that holds high prestige for those who like straightaways and sharp lefts and are rich enough to look stunning steering that wheel. Those who are rich enough to look stunning while not steering a wheel would rather see a self-driving car come around. The luxury auto brand is not and will not go for that demography. Porsche CEO Oliver Bume said to a German newspaper: // One wants to drive a Porsche by oneself [...] An iPhone belongs in your pocket, not on the road. Of course, in the luxury automobile category, there is a difference between performance drivers ...

    Voice assistants tend to be pretty helpful in getting you what you want to know. Google Now seems to be one of the more matured services that can get more than the basics down to an art. Cortana, being one of the newer players, is getting there quick — especially with cross-platform access. We refer to these types of services, however, as Siri, almost by second nature. Says a lot about what Apple does. But this is about what Apple didn't do for five years. Since 2011, it was reported to Apple when Siri fielded queries about where one could find an abortion clinic that she instead would ...

    Rumors are swirling about the compact iPhone 5se and super-sharp iPad Air 3 Apple might be unveiling as early as March, plus the iPhone 7 no doubt scheduled for a fall release, but it’s actually next year that we’ll likely see true innovation brought to iDevices. No, we don’t mean just AMOLED display technology, though that would be a pretty big deal too, but rather a “cutting-edge” new feature allowing iPhones and iPads “to be powered from further away than the charging mats used with current smartphones”, as Bloomberg eloquently puts it. To an outsider’s eye, it probably ...

    This is not a drill, prank or isolated incident. Browsing the web on iOS devices and Mac computers using the default Safari app can result in nagging crashes over and over again. Reopening the browser doesn’t resolve the mysterious underlying glitch, which apparently has something to do with search suggestions. No, simply changing the search engine can’t fix the epidemic bug either, but the good news is you can contain the malfunction by turning off Safari suggestions. That’s obviously merely a temporary workaround, the only other thing that kind of works is not clearing your cached ...

    We’ve all been there. Whether it’s working for a tech giant in a low-level customer support position, getting through college with the aid of a cashier gig at a fast food chain, or signing an exclusive endorsement contract as a professional athlete, the temptation to try out the forbidden fruit often gets the best of us. But the head of the team building the phone, tablet and PC versions of Windows is obviously under far greater scrutiny than just any McDonald’s employee who likes to eat at KFC in their lunch break, or even a famous person paid to advertise some gadget and favoring ...

    We know that Sharp does a very, very mean LCD. But we've also been talking about Apple's edging away from those liquid crystals and more towards those organic light-emitting diodes. Samsung may be making some panels for a future iPhone. Japan Display says it will soon start making them, full stop. Its OLED production will ramp up during 2018 as it chases LG Display. That company's in the process of starting its own OLED factories. Sharp, LG Display, Japan Display and Samsung have all supplied LCD screens for iPhones. To tie Sharp into this story: Japan Display's biggest shareholder, a ...

    The road from an abstract concept or idea to a mass-produced commercial device can often be quite long and convoluted in the tech décor, especially when talking about Apple, which very rarely takes risks on “experimental” gadgets or features. Cupertino delayed the inevitable IPS LCD to AMOLED iPhone transition for as long as humanly possible, so naturally, it seems highly unlikely the tardy move will occur simultaneously with folding screen technology adoption. But a patent filing with the USPTO from yesterday, January 21, does at least prove Apple is testing the “electronic device ...

    Samsung Electronics may not be making the guts that will go into the next iPhone, but it will be making the Snapdragon 820. But applications processors aren't the only components the manufacturer makes; it's also into displays. And with Apple looking to change up its display technology come the year after next, what better time than now to prepare for things. Reports from inside sources say Samsung will invest up to $7.5 billion in facility expansion and new equipment to produce flexible OLED displays per month for future iPhones. Apple will order between 30,000 and 45,000 displays a month ...

    You like charts? Tech analyst Horace Dediu likes to craft charts for "idle amusement" on occasion and, based on data from market research firm Gartner, has found that iPhone shipments have surpassed Windows PC shipments in 2015. Furthermore, if we extrapolate current trend lines out to 2027, we might see Mac shipments up above PC shipments. Idle amusement. pic.twitter.com/Kiyj3Vr5Hx — Horace Dediu (@asymco) January 13, 2016 Of course, the PC space has been contracting in favor of smaller or more physically-versatile devices for productivity's sake (at least, the buzzword right now is ...

    If you want to take a stab at doing more on your phone in 2016, make sure you have an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, first of all. It has 3D Touch. Rimshot aside, iOS is getting another point upgrade and we now know more about what goodies are going into the bump. Since we mentioned it first, 3D Touch menus will be available for the Weather, Settings, Compass, Health ("Don't worry, I'm a medic"), App Store and iTune Store apps. We already talked about Night Shift, the Touch ID lock for Notes as well as improvements to News. Other major improvements include jumps between Apple Pay and Wallet ...

    We’re only a week or two away from Apple’s detailed financial report of the just-ended holiday quarter, and iPhones could post a new all-time record… or their first yearly drop in history. It’s close, but Gene Munster, the managing director and senior research analyst at Piper Jaffray, expects the former scenario to materialize, as unit shipments may have topped 75 million after all. Still, that would largely mark box-office stagnation for Cupertino’s main cash cow, which should generate quarterly revenues of around $77 billion. Stagnation is better than a decline, but ...
