    Yesterday's WWDC 2014 keynote brought a lot a fun, interesting, and exciting things - especially for Android users like you and I! Why? Apple validated the direction that Android is taking, and improved upon some of Google's services and features in some creative ways. Before you draw-and-quarter me for blasphemy or for being a witch, hear me out. I'm Joe the Android guy for a reason. I was even offered an iPhone free of charge from my day job. I turned them down and opted to pay for my own device as well as my own line of service. Why? I like what Android does, and I think it's better ...

    June is finally upon us, and Apple is ushering-in the month with the start of this year's Worldwide Developers Conference. The event begins in San Francisco today, and Apple's kicking things off with its big keynote address. We start today with news of the company's OS X Yosemite (which appears to take more than a few design notes from recent iOS revisions) for its computer users, but we came here for mobile news. What of iOS 8? Well, before we get there (and mixed in with all the PC stuff) Apple's got some new cloud business to share, introducing iCloud Drive. It syncs across devices like ...

    Apple's WWDC is probably one of the company's most important events. We already know that the event will bring us Apple's new mobile operating system, iOS 8, and we also know that a new version of OS X is in the works, which might also bring some mobile functionality to compete with Windows 8.1. We also know that there will be hardware at this event, but it's hard to predict if these will be iterative updates, or hot new stuff. We assume this should be the show floor for the iWatch, since iOS 8's main feature, HealthBook is pointless without a wearable to track you. Apple has been kind ...

    Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) has historically been mainly centered around software, which explains why we're expecting to see iOS 8 and an updated Mac OS X at the event. However, we do know to expect new hardware, so why not an iPhone 6? This alleged WWDC presentation states that this could be a possibility. The video, republished by Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowhereelse.fr, shows what looks to be the interior of a Moscone West room (the WWDC venue) and a presentation rehearsal for the keynote. We get three different angles of this alleged new iPhone 6 model, and all line ...

    Late last spring, on the first day of WWDC 2013, Apple introduced the world to iOS 7. In the months that followed, we saw the platform get its public release, and eventually Apple delivered a number of software updates, bringing us up to the 7.1.1 we find ourselves with today. More recently, though, our attentions have been focused less on the next 7.x update, and looking out to the future, as rumors and leaks attempted to detail what we might expect from iOS 8. WWDC 2014 kicks-off this coming Monday, June 2, and as Apple gets ready for its users to descend upon San Francisco, some early ...

    New York City is a fine place to sneak a peek at some unreleased devices, and that's just what we did this week with the LG G3 event (streamed from London to an airy presentation room in a Chelsea skyscraper) and AT&T's ASUS PadFone X announcement (held on a posh rooftop lounge near the Flatiron). At one of those events, Daniel Bader of MobileSyrup was our seat neighbor, so we thought we'd invite him on this week's podcast to discuss the more globally significant of these high-profile launches. Join us as we share our impressions of the LG G3: how it stands on its own and how well it ...

    16GB is just too much for some people, it looks like. Apple tried to solve this issue by releasing an 8GB variant of its iPhone 5c, but they could have another product coming, an 8GB iPhone 5s. He also mentions the possibility of the infamous iWatch finally being announced with iOS 8, but notes that the chances are slim. The KGI Securities analyst is stating that he believes the 5s 8GB flavor will show up at WWDC next week, but also states that Apple may simply not decide to introduce the device because of the fact that the change is very minor. He states that he expects not much hardware ...

    Apple's WWDC 2014 event is just around the corner, and the company has already confirmed the specific date and time for the launch keynote. It's planned to happen from 10AM to 12PM on Monday, June 2nd at Moscone West, as it has for the last couple of years. Surely we've seen Apple launch blockbuster products like the iPhone 4 in the last couple of years, but lately WWDC has been a software-focused event. It's hard to predict if things will change this year, but rumors point to a possibility. The biggest things to expect at this event are definitely iOS 8, and a more iOS-looking OS X ...

    Apple's big break in re-inventing itself at the edge of bankruptcy more than a decade ago, had everything to do with music, through the iPod and iTunes. Still, we've seen how companies like Spotify are making a huge dent in Apple's dominance over the music business recently. It's clear that Apple needs to make some bold moves in differentiating iTunes from its competitors, and rumors have a plan in the works with iOS 8. Even though it isn't really official that Apple purchased Beats for $3.2 billion last week, Apple isn't really the company that would make such a purchase public. Reports ...

    We're just a few weeks away from Apple's WWDC 2014, and the amount of rumors as to what to expect for iOS 8 are just going to get stronger. We've heard the company making significant improvements to services like Maps, but we've also heard that it'll also create a new Health Book service, as a key feature to integrate with its future wearable. What we hadn't heard yet is to what degree of depth Apple planned to invest on this new Health Book service, and new rumors point to it being big. Reuters has apparently been interviewing some of the new execs that Apple has hired from the ...

    Apple's World Wide Developer Conference is probably the biggest event that the company hosts every year. During the event, those lucky developers that can get a ticket have the opportunity to work directly with Apple on ways to improve their applications. It's also the event where Steve Jobs has announced devices like the iPhone 4, and where we expect to see something great this year as well. Apple has just announced that the event starts on June 2nd, and that it'll go through June 6th. Historically, the first day is used for Tim Cook's keynote, and just like we saw iOS 7 last year, and ...

    Just yesterday we heard that Apple will most probably dub its next version iOS as iOS 8. The reports included details like Apple's persistence in fixing the different complaints that so many of us have with its Maps application, and we even hear that its recent acquisitions will take a big part in it. Sadly yesterday's reports ended there, and now we get some additional and separate reports that give us another point in focus. According to the report, Apple will also provide dramatic improvements to iTunes Radio. The service just crowned itself third as the preferred music streaming ...
