    As the Apple vs. Samsung trial continues, one of the coolest things is that the defense (Samsung) has access to Apple's internal documentation, which is doing a great job at showing just how vulnerable the company is. We've seen allegations coming and going over how Apple feels at a loss in its ability to show customers its innovation when diluted by Samsung's competition. Obviously Samsung is just one of Apple's threats, and some new information today expresses Apple's deeper concerns regarding Android as a whole. According to an internal document that came from Apple's sales department, ...

    One of the coolest features that Apple debuted years ago, and which other platforms have adopted over the years, is a way for you to find your iPhone if misplaced or stolen. The service was initially part of MobileMe, then became free for all users as "Find my iPhone", and is now part of iCloud, which is free for everyone as well. The service can pin-point where your device is, make it ring if you can't find it, and even sends messages to the phone in case it was stolen. Sadly the service has been proven to be far from perfect today. For you to disable "Find my iPhone" you have to enter ...

    Spotify is the go-to source of many for on-demand music streaming, through its subscription (and free) offerings. Its official clients are available for phones and tablets on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone as well, but starting today, those kicking it to Spotify tunes on the iPhone will be able to be the first ones to experience the redesigned Spotify app. Whether it is "the best looking Spotify ever", as the press release puts it, is up to you. The new version is darker, uses new typography and iconography, and focuses even more on content. In addition to the visual upgrades, the service ...

    As the trial of Apple vs. Samsung continues today, we've already heard Apple's arguments as to why Samsung has benefited from the whole development process of building phones through Apple's experience with the iPhone. Obviously the next step was for Samsung to defend itself, and you'd think that Samsung would counter Apple's arguments during its opening statement, but the company insists that it's just a victim. As it turns out, Samsung's attorney Bob Quinn decided to pull out an old 2010 email written by Steve Jobs to his staff to address the battle between Apple and Google as the "Holy ...

    Apple's App Store pricing practices are fairly straight forward since its inception. Developers decide the price they want to charge, and then Apple gets a 30% cut of everything the app makes. What's interesting is that Apple has never really explained how it prices apps outside the United States, unless you live in Europe, where everything is the exact amount in Euros. In countries outside the European Union, maintaining a fixed price is difficult due to variable exchange rates, and that's just about to hit customers abroad. Apple has just announced that it'll be changing the prices of ...

    Apple's production of sapphire is full steam ahead, and many of us believe that the company will use it on its next generation iPhone. Still, we all know that glass gets smudged easily, and therefore we've seen the company use oleophobic coating on its display technology since the dawn of the iPhone 3GS. If you still doubted about the possibility of Apple using sapphire on its future iPhone line-up, we suggest your think again, as new patents tell us a different story. Apple has just filed a patent that brings oleophobic coating to sapphire glass. Obviously the only reason why you would ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from more drama between Apple and Samsung due to patent litigation. One of the advantages of these trials is that a lot of the secrecy behind the development of the original iPhone has been revealed. One of the primary software engineers in-charge of developing iPhone OS back in the day, which we now know as iOS, has come clear as to how an ultimatum from Steve Jobs himself resulted in the smartphone revolution that you know today. Greg Christie is famously know for being named in most, if not all of the software patents behind iOS. In an interview with ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    At a time when batteries keep getting bigger and bigger, you'd think that Apple would lead this trend since the biggest complaint that all iPhone users share, is their hatred for its battery life. The irony is that Apple has only grown the iPhone's battery 12% in the last seven years, when compared to Samsung which has almost tripled it. Apple clearly has a problem to fix, and a new patent sheds some light into where it'll focus on next. The patent is called “Inferring user intent from battery usage level and charging trends” so sadly we're not talking about a new battery, nor a ...

    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 ...

    Apple has been famous for delivering products that "just work" throughout its history. That being said, products like MobileMe, and even the recent iOS 7 have shown us that things can't always be perfect no matter what company is providing them. iOS 7 proved to be the buggiest version in iOS history, and according to recent studies, the problem has been fixed for the most part with iOS 7.1. According to a recent analysis done by Crittercism, a mobile solutions firm, iOS 7.1 has a crash rate of only 1.6%, which is significantly low when compared to the iOS 7 and even iOS 6 which had ...

    Microsoft Office for iPad has been rumored for quite some time, and, according to the latest bits mentioning the software package, it is expected to debut mid-this-year. However, according to a recent Reuters report, many (individuals and companies) are tired of waiting for the official release and are moving to other offerings. If the news agency's sources are right, Microsoft already has a fully working/final version of its Microsoft Office for iPhone and iPad suites. It is just a matter of releasing it, and that will eventually come down to Satya Nadella's decision. "Certainly, interest ...

    The race for great image quality on smartphone photos has become more intense. Apple did amazing things with its launch of the iPhone 4 in 2010, but when you compare recent developments like the Nokia Lumia 1020, or even devices like the LG G2, it's hard to see the iPhone being able to compete, even though the iPhone 5s has done a great job in raising the bar. We've seen reports come and go of Apple considering detachable lenses for its iPhone line-up, and even though this move is clearly far-away from Apple's demonstrated practices, we get some more patents that say otherwise. In a new ...
