    Apple's launch of iOS 8 should be more than just a software update on your radar if you value privacy. One of the major changes to the OS is that Apple no longer stores your encryption keys, meaning, only you have access to your passwords and data. This is great since it eliminates any known possibility for your data to be shared with any law enforcement agency without your consent, but then again, if you forget your password, keep in mind there's no way to retrieve it later. Apple has also taken its time to publish a full website with all the changes that the company has implemented to ...

    For those of you that were left wondering why Apple is landing a partnership with IBM after thirty years of rivalry, the explanation is quite interesting. One of the most shocking statements we've ever heard from Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, is that he's able to get 80% of his work done on an iPad in ways we've never been able to replicate even in our line of work. Even more interesting is that Tim Cook feels that you can do the same, and the collaboration with IBM is specifically to help you do that. In recent interviews with Tim Cook and IBM Chief Executive Virginia Rometty, both company ...

    Even though Apple is quite famous for its secrecy, a lot has gone wrong in that department lately, and we wonder if this is intentionally driven in order to lower the buzz from competing devices. We've heard tons of rumors regarding the future of the iPhone, iPad and even the iWatch, and most of this will apparently see the light of day in 2014. If you're wondering why Apple has taken so long while competitors like Samsung have all the market to themselves, Apple's CEO has an answer for that. Tim Cook was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal after the company's quarter results, ...

    You'd think that after so many lawsuits, embargoes, and the ironic fact that both Apple and Samsung are partners, each company would reach an amicable settlement to the continuous patent disputes that haunt them, and yet, the soap opera continues. We remember the news of a Judge ruling for both leaders of each company to meet and try to resolve the patent disputes that they're dealing with. Both CEOs met last week according to the mandate, but it seems that the problems continue. According to ZDNet Korea, lawyers from both sides met on January 6th to prepare the mediation, and then company ...

    Even though Apple has been reluctant to adopt NFC as a standard, that doesn't change the fact that it has invested a lot in making payments mobile. We've seen it on its App and Music stores, and we've also seen how the company has automated your purchase process at any Apple Store. Touch ID has brought an additional secure element to your App Store purchases on the iPhone 5S, but it seems Apple is just getting started. In a recent interview with Tim Cook, he stated that "The mobile payments area in general is one we’ve been intrigued with. It was one of the thoughts behind Touch ID [...] ...

    Even if you're not a fan of soaps, there's no way you can avoid them in an industry like this one, where every company claims to have invented or designed the same thing that the other did. Apple and Samsung have been the two worse cases, as lawsuits have flown from each other's desks in the last couple of years more than any other rivalry in the tech world. These trials have resulted in one meeting between both of the companies CEOs in order to reach better agreements, but this didn't prove to be as successful as the courts expected. As a result, the CEOs of both companies will meet again ...

    Tim Cook, CEO of too-big-to-fail Apple took the opportunity to kick the rotting corpse that is Nokia just a few microseconds after a deal between Microsoft and Nokia was announced. Said Timmy, "I think [Nokia] is a reminder to everyone in business that you have to keep innovating and that to not innovate is to die." The problem here is that Nokia did innovate. It's Apple that has been lagging behind for years. This is of course coming from the CEO of the company that released last year's iPhone as this year's iPhone plus a paint job and whose biggest innovation on their latest flagship was ...

    We all know that Bill Gates is happy where he is, and doesn't want to return to Microsoft as a CEO. He's publicly stated it repeatedly, and that has been a fact for a little over a decade. Still, every time I go through Microsoft's current situation, I can't deny how much of a déjà vu this is to the story of one of Microsoft's closest rivals. Larry Ellison was recently in the spotlight because of his comments regarding Apple's leadership. The now billionaire CEO that created Oracle and that made it what it is, was also Steve Jobs' best friend. In the interview, he was very blunt about ...

    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 ...
