The best thing about the iPhone 6s
We already ran our full in-depth review of Apple's brand new iPhone 6s, but with all of the phone's great new features, it's time to focus on the one thing that outshines everything else...
It might be the weekend, but that doesn’t mean the BGR Deals Team is going to let great sales go unnoticed. If you’re spending your Saturday looking for a solid big-screen HDTV at a great price, you’ve come to the right place because we found a trio of great deals for you. Today only, you can get the three TVs listed below for under $500 each. In fact, one of them is under $400. These are large TVs with 48-inch screens (one is listed at 49 inches but it’s actually 48.5), and they’re all 2015 models from top name brands including Samsung, LG and Sharp.
Now, for the bad news: You had better hurry if you want to take advantage of these great prices, because all three of these sales end at midnight PDT tonight. More →
Microsoft will soon unveil the Surface Pro 4, a high-end next-generation Windows 10 laptop/tablet hybrid, and a new report indicates the device will gate an insanely cool display feature that will allow Microsoft to increase the tablet’s screen size without increasing the overall size of the device.

Despite the fact that the Xbox One is arguably the best console on the market, Microsoft still can’t catch up with Sony when it comes to sales. That’s not to say the Xbox One is floundering, but it became abundantly clear that the company is dedicated to growing its share of the market when it announced six (6) new console bundles this week.
Rather than cover each individual bundle throughout the week, we decided to wait until today to look back at all of the announcements and rank the six bundles based on the order we’d buy them in. More →
Microsoft is not irrelevant by any stretch of the imagination. However, it’s also not the dominating, omnipotent colossus that it was 10 years ago, when it was impossible to imagine personal computers running on anything other than Windows. Nowadays, of course, personal computing is more than desktop and laptop PCs — it’s also smartphones, tablets and even wearable computers. Andreessen Horowitz analyst Benedict Evans on Friday posted a chart on Twitter that shows us exactly when Microsoft’s time as the tech industry’s dominant player came to an end. More →
The sci-fi adventure “The Martian” has landed in theaters starring Matt Damon as an astronaut forced to find ways of surviving on Mars solo after being left behind by his crew. The film is based on the popular book by Andy Weir and provides many science based explanations of how he could live on the red planet.
When FoxNews.com spoke with Director Ridley Scott at the Toronto International Film Festival we asked him about this Mars fascination. “I think because Mars really is the nearest planet, you discount the moon, which is only five days away, five days flight,” he said. “Mars, according to where you are, is between 50 million and 130 million miles away, according to its trajectory. After that, you got to learn to hibernate for years and you got to fly at the speed of light to get to the next planet. You’d be flying for 40 years.” More →
It’s officially official: The I Heard You Paint Houses mob movie is going to start shooting next year, and none other than Robert De Niro confirmed in an interview that he’s teaming up with longtime partner in crime movies Martin Scorsese. Joining them for the ride will be two other actors that you might have seen in quite a few mob flicks: Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. More →
Android fans have a lot of good reasons to root for Motorola these days and the company gave them a brand-new one on Friday. Motorola not only announced which of its phones would be getting upgraded to Android but it also announced that it would actually be deleting two pieces of its own software from those devices to make the upgrade process go even faster.

I think most people would agree that patent trolls represent a plague on the tech community, consistently leveraging questionable and often times silly patents in an effort to extort money from companies that actually work hard to release products and services.
In many respects, the patent system is out of control, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the Eastern District of Texas where judges have a seeming affinity for frivolous patent claims. Consequently, and not at all surprisingly, a staggering number of patent infringement lawsuits are filed in Texas each and every year.
Apple announced it sold more than 13 million combined iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus units during the opening weekend, including preorders. The phone was available online in a dozen markets including China for almost two weeks before launching in stores, helping Apple beat its iPhone 6 launch weekend sales record.
But an analytics company says that iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus show lower adoption rates than their predecessors. More →
You may not remember them, but Nokia’s Treasure Tags were some of the coolest smartphone accessories we saw all last year. For those of you who need a reminder, Treasure Tags are matchbox-sized tags that you can attach to your keys, wallet and other important items to make sure they never get lost. The tags’ main feature was to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth and NFC and then issue an alarm if you try to leave your house without your tagged items. More →

The iPhone 6s is already selling better than its predecessors, according to official launch weekend numbers, and while the jury is still out on whether the handset will be able to break Apple’s current quarterly iPhone sales record, the fact remains that the iPhone 6s is the best iPhone model ever made. Many people would dismiss the 6s as being just a minor “S” update over last year’s major redesign, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. However, if you’re bored with iPhone 6’s design, then the iPhone 7 is probably the phone for you.
Apple is expected to make big design changes to next year’s iPhone, and a new concept incorporates some ideas that Apple might already be toying with. More →
