The EU has been known to make a lot of odd decisions when it comes to tech, such as forcing Microsoft's hand at including a "browser wheel" with its Windows OS, but this latest decision is one I think most people will agree with. One thing that's frustrating about different smartphones is the occasional requirement to... Read more...
Boy, math sure can be a buzz kill sometimes.

While perhaps a bit unnerving, let's not act like this hasn't happened before. While Apple's engineering team is no doubt massive, there's only so much a fixed group can find.

Have you ever been in a relationship that you just know is bad news, but you can't help but stay? Some call that being a glutton for punishment; for Apple, it's called smart business.

When Apple unveiled its iPhone 5C and 5S last week, one of the standout features belonged to the latter: Fingerprint security.

Hot on the heels of news that a crowdfunded competition aims to figure out if the fingerprint security implementation on Apple's iPhone 5s can be exploited comes news of a proven security risk, squarely involving iOS 7.

Just in the nick of time, AT&T has unveiled its iPhone 5c & 5s pricing, both for a 2-year contract and the company's 'Next' service. For the most part, the pricing seen here is expected, although a mention of the 4S being available under contract for $0.99 does contrast a bit with the "FREE" mention on Apple's... Read more...
When Apple announced its new iPhones and produced a gold-colored version of the iPhone 5S, We were pretty sure we weren’t the only ones who cringed. Gold? Really?

It's a rumor that has been going around for some time now, but it's gaining steam. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple is testing larger-screened iPhones, which would add a meaningful fragmentation to the iOS universe. Apple stuck with the 3.5-inch screen size for as long as it could, and eventually upped... Read more...
Something that's become rather clear over the past year or so is that when some info trickles out about a new Google Nexus product, the Web jumps all over it like wild savages. It kind of - just kind of - reminds me of how things used to be whenever a new piece of info leaked out about Apple's upcoming iPhones. While Google's sure to hate... Read more...
Twilight Zone fans might remember poor Henry Bemis (played by Burgess Meredith). Bemis loved books more than most but could never quite find the time to read them.

As far as Apple rumors go, usually it’s all about new products that the Cupertino company is trying to keep under wraps (but is also glad that people are rumor-mongering about), but this one pertains to yet another carrier that will soon carry the iPhone.

As far as leaked Apple devices go, the upcoming plastic so-called iPhone 5C isn’t quite as compelling as a hot next-gen device would be, but because the rumored device represents Apple’s first foray into selling a non-premium iPhone, everyone wants a peak.
