    We at Pocketnow have a lot to be thankful for this week. We're busier than ever, our YouTube channel just passed 500,000 subscribers and we're deep in the planning stages for the new year's big tech expos. But most importantly, we're all still in the business of reporting on mobile gadgets, and that's something we all feel pretty lucky about. On today's late-Friday edition of the Weekly, we'll fill you in on some of the fun stuff coming down the pipe: from our forthcoming LG G Flex review, to wooden Moto X devices hitting shelves, to the future union of Windows RT and Windows Phone. We'll ...

    iOS 7 is one of those things that you'll either love, hate, or simply put-up with if you already own an iOS device. Some of us have been waiting for it for a long time. In full honesty, I think I was ready for a change even before Apple announced that there would be an iPad running it. Apple did a good job in polishing it and to keep me as their customer, but 2013 had to be a year of change for me, or else. Some people hated the previous version of iOS for Apple's choice in design, but I'll admit that I actually liked it. As fake as it could be, it did a good job in looking elegant on my ...

    For those of you fans of the Jailbreak underworld, the time has come. Evasi0n was finally released today for all iOS 6 compatible devices, and it's as easy and stable as the most popular Jailbreaks we've seen in the past. Jailbreaking will allow you to side-load applications and services to iOS 6 that Apple has either not intended or not considered for your device. And as we historically know, many of these solutions have served to make iOS what it currently is since Apple has hired a couple of the developers behind some of the apps being offered. It's hard to answer the question: Why ...

    You probably know about the back and forth in the UK regarding the acknowledgement Apple had to publish on its website. The initial text was found to be improper and the court ordered Apple to replace it, something which happened recently in the printed media too. Now Apple's website features not one but two acknowledgements. The first one, at the bottom of the front page, contains a link to the legal text alongside the lines: "On 25 October 2012, Apple Inc. published a statement on its UK website in relation to Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers. That statement was inaccurate and did not ...

    The holiday period is always a busy one, but when you've got industry-defining products launching from literally every major manufacturer and platform-maker, it's a special Q4 indeed. That's what we're looking at with this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: from Microsoft's new Surface RT and Windows Phones, to Google's new Nexus family, to Apple's iPad Mini, there's a lot to cover. Throw in a lot of Windows 8 and Android commentary, the typically awesome helping of listener mail, and the fact that two-thirds of the podcast team have bad head colds, and you get a sweet -if stuffy- hour and a ...

    After Apple's shift in management that removes Scott Forstall from the team and puts Sir Jonathan Ive in a leading and directing position for human interfaces, many have wondered what impact will this move have on software. Ive is equally known for his iconic industrial designs in all of Apple's hardware as well as for being a strong voice against the visual representations of real-life things and textures within the software (skeuomorphs in general), according to unnamed past and present Apple employees. According to a still employed designer at Apple who remained unnamed we can be sure ...

    Remember the apology Apple had to post on its UK website after losing the trial against Samsung for tablet design patents? Judges ruled that Apple should post, both on the website and in the printed media, an acknowledgement that Samsung did not copy its products’ design — a decision which is still subject to a possible Supreme Court appeal -- because Samsung tablets were not as "cool" as Apple's. Apple did post some sort of acknowledgement but the wording doesn't please the judges. The U.K. Court of Appeal in London found the text “untrue” and “incorrect” and has decided ...

    Apple has announced some major changes in its management with some of the executives getting expanded and additional responsibilities while Scott Forstall is preparing to leave the company as of next year; until then he will serve as the CEO's, Tim Cook's advisor. Also leaving the company is John Browett, ex senior vice president of retail; until the company finds a replacement the retail team will report directly to the CEO, Tim Cook. Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, will take over Siri and Apple's own maps as the company is now placing all online ...

    If you've seen (or know all about) the iPhone 5 event then you know that Apple's new iTunes version 11 was slated for an October release. There's little to no doubt that today will be the day and the company itself seems to be teasing the next generation all-in-one application. "Get ready for the new iTunes" is the title of the document which doesn't miss the opportunity to let you know that "the arrival of a new version of iTunes presents a good opportunity to spruce up your library for its new surroundings". The new version of the application will not only bring new features but it will ...

    We're exactly 24 hours away from Apple's press event that's dubbed "We've got a little more to show you". Sure there are tons of rumors of Macs that'll be released, but what we care about here is the iPad Mini. It's completely dominated the rumors in the last couple of weeks, and it's easy to know why. The iPad is still the most popular tablet in the world, and it's understandable that a smaller, more affordable iPad will be well received by the public. Some of us aren't expecting just a smaller iPad though. That would've made sense two years ago. The benchmark is pretty high this year ...

    Birds are chirping that alongside the iPad mini Apple will also introduce some sort of iPad flavor. It will purportedly feature the new Lightning port and some other probable spec bumps (or not). The image above is allegedly a shell for this refreshed iPad and, as you can see, the only difference compared to the New iPad is the port at the bottom. There is no further information to back this up so treat it accordingly together with the rest of the rumors at this time. On a different note we've recently seen a picture claimed to be originating from an inventory that lists a lot of iPad mini ...

    What makes an iPad the iPad? Have you ever asked yourself this question? How can it be that a full decade of tablet computers was outsold by the first-generation iPad in just 10 months? How could it also be that two years of Android tablets haven't been able to defeat its lead? The answer to these questions is quite complicated. Each user was driven to the iPad for different reasons. Some bought it for its price back in 2010, when given a choice between a netbook that was just as cheap and a Tablet PC that was three times more expensive. Others simply because the ads did a great job in ...

    Whether you like Apple's own mapping offering on iOS 6 or you hate it there is no doubt at this moment that there is a perception of inferiority when compared to the old Google Maps on previous iterations of iOS. Google executives didn't explicitly confirm nor deny plans for a native iOS 6 Maps application but commented that, even if there will be such an app, Apple would have to approve it anyways. The images above and below seem to be snapped following the instructions in "Mr. Blurrycam's Guide to Photography" to the letter. They're allegedly snapped off of a very early alpha version of ...

    As I read the recent news of Apple, once again, beating their own sales record with the iPhone 5 on opening weekend, I couldn't help but remember my first impression of the iPhone 5 announcement. The device wasn't as remarkable as many of us expected it to be, but it was hard to turn my head away from the fact that it was available for pre-order in two days, and it would arrive in my doorstep just ten days later. The same thing happened to most of us with Google's launch of the Nexus 7. Neither of us had even held the device, but it was available for pre-order that same day, and shipping ...

    iOS 6 Maps was "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever", that is when you only looked at it on paper; once you started to actually use the offering it quickly became obvious that the service didn't deliver, by far in some regions, the experience advertised (and expected). Tim Cook officially apologized for falling short on “delivering the best experience possible" to customers with iOS 6 Maps; Apple went as far as to recommend competing solutions until its own offering became better (competitive). After the acknowledgement the description of Maps has also been changed on ...

    iOS6 will bring a lot of new features (despite the fact that many are expecting a brand new user interface), at least from what Apple have shown and told us. Of course, there might be some more exciting stuff being held from us in order to show off with the occasion of the iPhone event. However, Apple introduced a nice little feature in the Mail app, as spotted by BGR. If you conversation view (thread) is getting too long, you have to pull in order to expand the collapsed email and it will display more. In order to visualize this, check out the image above. It's pretty much similar to ...

    Despite the fact that the numbers are looking really good, Apple's financial results for the second quarter of 2012 fall short of some expectations mainly because of speed bumps in the European economy as well as slightly worse iPhone sales. The fruit company managed to sell 26 million iPhones and 17 million iPads in Q2. However, iPhone sales are lower than expected and, according to the company, rumors of the next iPhone are hurting smartphone sales. The same thing happened last year with the iPhone 4 where many future owners refrained from purchasing one on the eve of the iPhone 4S ...

    Those running the third beta of iOS 6 noticed that Apple will make it easier to update applications and install free ones by removing an extra step necessary in the current iteration of the platform. Passwords will no longer be required for installation of free applications. The user will also no longer be required to enter their iTunes password when updating an application already installed, regardless if it is free or purchased/commercial. Currently the system is asking you for authentication but in iOS 6, whenever tapping a free product in the AppStore in order to install it, the button ...

    Those who chose Google+ over other offerings for their main social networking solution that are owners of an Apple tablet didn't have a dedicated Google+ client up until now but Mountain View finally released one, as promised at Google I/O. Aside from the good looks, the Google+ application for the iPad brings some tablet-only functionality, like the ability to pinch and expand posts in your stream to add your comments, use two fingers to drag a post from your stream to easily re-share it and start a Hangout from your iPad and stream it to your TV using AirPlay.
