Apple may have found another source of revenue, one that would stem from customers who own out-of-warranty products and are in need of technical assistance. Rumor has it Apple will soon start charging these users for online chat support using a brand new web payment system it recently developed. It could be introduced... Read more...
From a product release standpoint, we're still collectively waiting for Apple chief Tim Cook to make a splash and really knock our socks off. That's not to say he hasn't been a fine replacement for Steve Jobs -- Apple is still making an obscene amount of money, and Cook is more than willing to discuss how much... Read more...
It can feel like the growing cadre of wearable fitness tech is just so much noise, but some of these products will inevitably rise to the top. The Moov fitness tracker, a compact, cleanly designed wrist-mounted fitness device, might just be one of those wearables. The Moov team is comprised of former Apple and... Read more...
There's mounting evidence to suggest that Apple has put Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) out to pasture, thereby leaving users of what's become a legacy operating system to fend for themselves out in the wild. For the second time, Apple rolled out a security patch for present and past OS X builds dating back to OS X 10.7, or... Read more...
If you own an iOS device, there's a security update you should be aware of. As Apple explains it, without the patch "an attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS." This means if you're connected to an unsecured network, an attacker can peek at the data... Read more...
There are generally two places the United States Post Office is willing to put your mug -- one is on the wall in the lobby featuring the FBI's "Most Wanted" criminals, and the other is on a postage stamp. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will occupy the latter in 2015 as one of several collectables for the year. He'll be... Read more...
After reading our headline, you might have clicked through expecting to see a punchline, but this is no joke.

It's an interesting proposition considering... Read more...
With friends like T-Mobile, who needs enemies? That pretty much sums up how BlackBerry felt after T-Mobile sent an email to customers encouraging them to switch to Apple's iPhone 5S. What really set the Canadian handset maker off, however, was T-Mobile calling its $0 down promotion on iPhone 5S smartphones a "great... Read more...
App developers hoping to make a quick buck piggybacking on the Flappy Bird craze that somehow has been able to simultaneously entertain and frustrate scores of gamers will have to be at least a little more creative than building an obvious clone and calling it "Flappy" something or other. In an attempt to fend off a... Read more...
Like us, you may have run across a headline or two declaring that Apple has finally passed Microsoft. If you're a fan of Apple, bust out a bottle of Redd's or Angry Orchard and raise it up in a toast of the accomplishment. When you're finished, put the bottle aside, because the reports are muddy at best, though they... Read more...

If you're willing to accept at face value Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen's public stance on why he removed the popular title from iTunes and Google Play, then perhaps a bit of kudos are in order, even if you don't agree with his decision. It's not often that you see a sense of responsibility trump the almighty dollar, and in this case,... Read more...
It's getting increasingly difficult to spot someone using a flip phone these days, and there's a good reason for that.

Just as interesting is... Read more...
In what can be considered one of the more bizarre moments in the history of gaming, Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen followed through on his promise to yank the popular app from iTunes and Google Play despite reports that he was making upwards of $50,000 per day through in-game advertising. His decision came just as sudden as the game grew... Read more...
Forget about spending money on scratch-proof screen protectors and bulky cases, Apple's next iPhone device might end up being tough as nails.

It would be much tougher than current displays, which are... Read more...
Bitcoin digital currency is somewhat controversial as many people are just completely confused by it, but that hasn’t stopped Bitcoin from being used around the world--nor has it protected the currency from cybercriminals. SecureMac detailed the discovery of a Trojan called OSX/CoinThief.A that specifically... Read more...
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is a funny guy. He's also highly opinionated (aren't we all?) and an unabashed fan of technology. Hence, if you're a diehard Apple fan, you'll have to forgive the Woz for suggesting that the Cupertino outfit get in bed with Google and build an Android phone. The day that happens is the day Steve Jobs digs his... Read more...
Apple, a company that's known for aggressively defending its patents (just ask Samsung, which seems to always be involved in patent litigation with the Cupertino outfit), may have bitten off more than it can chew when it designed its custom A7 system-on-chip (SoC). A newly filed lawsuit by the Wisconsin Alumni... Read more...

Just over 10 years ago, Android was born into this world out of the minds of Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears, and Chris White, who collective envisioned building an advanced operating system for digital cameras.
