It seems that with Kinect on the Xbox One, there's more than meets the camera's eye. According to Bloomberg, Microsoft for the first time has built its own processor in-house, and it's destined for Kinect. Oddly, there's been no mention of where the chip is actually being built, and there's really no safe guess... Read more...
Go ahead and mark it down: September 10th will be the day that you'll want to take a mid-week break, as Apple is reportedly planning to unveil its next-generation iPhone at a special event in California on that day.

It's easy to misplace a key, especially if you have kids who like to play with anything that jingles. In most cases, a lost key will eventually turn up, but not always. What then? Well, if you download and install KeyMe from Apple's App Store, you needn't ever worry about lost keys again, though this ingenious... Read more...
iOS 7 is looking to bring a host of design changes to Apple's iPhone operating system, but it will evidently be bringing one other important change: a patch. Currently, a security flaw exists whereby hackers can engage with an iPad or iPhone by connecting a spoofed "fake charging station." The exploit was discussed at... Read more...

We've heard numerous rumors of Apple planning to launch a low cost version of its iPhone, perhaps one that's constructed of polycarbonate plastic rather than aluminum and glass.

T-Mobile, billing itself as “America’s un-carrier”, is experimenting with different promotions and programs; we’ve seen a contract-less unlimited everything plan and the JUMP plan that lets users swap out their phones every six months, and now the company is running a zero-down promotion...

Depending on how you look at it, Apple had another stellar quarter, generating $35.3 billion in revenue and posting a net profit of $6.9 billion, or $7.47 per diluted share. On the flip side, Apple's performance barely beat out Wall Street's somewhat subdued estimates, and though its revenue is up slightly from $35... Read more...
At this point, it's hardly a "rumor." The Motorola X is very, very real. Numerous executives have confirmed it slyly over the past few months, Google's own Eric Schmidt was seen using it in public earlier this month, and now we have yet another nugget to solidify things: Google CEO Larry Page recently stated the...

The mobile market is no place for wimps; competition is very steep and very fierce, and even giants with deep pockets like Microsoft can’t seem to compete.

When Square Enix rolled-out its latest mobile game, Deus Ex: The Fall, to iOS devices, fans of the series hoped for an exciting experience, close to what Human Revolution on the PC delivered. For some, that wasn't the case, leading to the insta-meme: Deus Ex: The Fail. The problem stemmed from the fact that the... Read more...
There was little doubt before about 3D printing having a real future, but at the moment, the industry is on fire. Mere weeks ago, Microsoft announced that Windows 8.1 would be natively supporting 3D printing, a major boon to those who need it. Today, we learn of yet another way that 3D printing is getting into the... Read more...
Back in May, the US Patent and Trademark Office approved an interesting Apple patent, one that will allow (if Apple does in fact implement it, which is likely) the iPhone to automatically adjust its volume based on its proximity to your face. There are many reasons why that could prove to be a useful feature, and it's... Read more...
Anticipation for Apple’s rumored plastic budget iPhone is high--not so much because it’s supposed to be a killer device as people want to see if it will be any good. A company called Techdy claims that it’s snagged one of the devices and produced copious photos and a little teardown to show it off. The photos show a white-backed... Read more...
For as long as the iPhone has existed, the general consensus seemed to be that it was a smartphone that could do no wrong. Of all the iPhone owners I know, only one of them has anything bad to say about their device. On the Android side, there are many more complaints, but that's of no surprise given the number of...

Augmented Reality - "AR" for short - is nothing new, but with products like Google Glass set to launch soon, it's garnering a lot more attention than usual. In fact, at least where advertising is concerned, analyst Juniper Research predicts that AR advertising will become a $1.5 billion market by 2015 - up from a $2 million one in 2010. That's...

A pair of enterprising fellows are raising cash for a device called Poppy that purports to turn your iPhone into a 3D camera, which is the prototypical sort of Kickstarter project: interesting, quirky, and just a bit outside the lines of what the average consumer might want to buy. You can slot in an Apple iPhone 5... Read more...
When it comes to Apple products, discounts are few and far between. The company just doesn't offer up coupons and price slashings on any sort of regular basis, and in fact, most of the retailers certified to sell genuine Apple products don't offer any discounts, either. Walmart has typically shaved a few dollars from... Read more...
Don't look now, but there will soon be yet another place to get your iPhone fix: Virgin Mobile. As Apple's phone has grown in importance, its availability has spread as well.

We were expecting a Jonny Ive-led redesign of Apple’s iOS with the announcement of iOS 7 at WWDC today, but what Apple unveiled has a lot more going for it that just a heavy facelift. It’s true, though, that the whole look has been revamped; the fonts have been tweaked to be cleaner and simpler, there’s a bit of motion to... Read more...
Live by the sword, die by the sword; just as Apple has used the U.S.’s obtuse and complicated patent laws to beat a billion dollars out of Samsung and attempt to block sales of some of that company’s wares, Samsung won a similar injunction against Apple that may prohibit the import and sale of some older...
