    The iPhone 5S is finally official, alongside its cheaper, "unapologetically plastic" sibling, the iPhone 5C. We have heard rumors of both since not long after the iPhone 5 launched last year, and the closer today's event got, the more secrets started to spill out. Today, we knew practically everything about both smartphones before Tim Cook & Co. ever took the stage. Many predicted today would be a fairly disappointing day for Apple fans. And while some seem infatuated with the color options of the 5C, the fingerprint scanner or A7 on the 5S, or iOS 7, there's an air of discontent and ...

    After months of rumors, the LG Optimus G2 is official, which means all the heresy can be laid to rest and we can finally put the device under the microscope and see how it compares with all the latest creations from other manufacturers. Aside from the strange nature of the press event and the mostly tame reactions from the audience at said event, the G2 actually has a fair amount of tricks in its repertoire. In fact, it's not all that different from what the Galaxy S 4 has to offer, and it has an answer to all those allegedly gimmicky features that come packed in the S4's version of ...

    Today is the day every iOS fanatic has been awaiting for years. From the time iOS was first announced to the last major update, iOS 6, the operating system has looked mostly the same. Apple added features along the way but, for the most part, it has always been the same iOS. For the last six years, the interface has remained mostly unchanged. And few viewed that as a serious problem. The vocal minority and us tech writers have griped about it for years, about how stale iOS has become as new and existing operating systems have been graced with new looks and groundbreaking features. But the ...

    It's about that time for Apple to show us the ropes with their next batch of products. WWDC, or World Wide Developers Conference, happens on June 10th and has always been about software enhancements to current software and services. That said, we've seen Apple launch a couple of iPhones and even Macs at this event, so there's no reason why we shouldn't get excited about this event. The biggest question we have is what'll we get and what'll we miss from this event. We do know that iOS 7 will take the spotlight, as Tim Cook confirmed at D11, but could WWDC be all about software this time ...

In today's show we go through the top 5 most compelling reasons why you should think twice, or even skip. Some things are just not the right fit, and this could be one of them for you. Jailbreaking an iPhone is very different to rooting an Android device. On Android, rooting allows you to load custom ROMs that enable you to really push the hardware to the limit.

    To Jailbreak or not to Jailbreak, that's the question we've received everywhere for the last 24 hours since Evasi0n was released, and we do understand the concerns of many of you. The fact of the matter is that it's really a matter of personal preference, and while some may be extremely inclined to do it because of their daily needs of their iPhone or iPad, some users don't really use their iOS products in a way that would warrant it. Jailbreaking an iPhone is very different to rooting an Android device. On Android, rooting allows you to load custom ROMs that enable you to really push the ...

    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 ...
