Video: Watch a replay of the entire HTC One M9 reveal right here

We all knew that we would see the HTC One M9 this weekend, but we had no idea it would be the least exciting product announced at the company’s MWC 2015 press conference.

That’s not to say that the One M9 isn’t an impressive device — although, for all intents and purposes, it’s a remaster of last year’s One M8, there’s no denying that it’s still one of the best Android devices on the market… but the Grip and the Vive are what really kept us hooked. More →

Apple Pay vs. Samsung Pay: Why Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge might not simply just work

One of the main features of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is Samsung Pay, the South Korean company’s own mobile payment platform. But while Samsung suggested on stage that Samsung Pay will be significantly better than Apple Pay because it’ll be available in more places, it might not be that easy for the company to roll it out, especially in some markets.

Microsoft’s quiet Android coup

Microsoft’s quiet Android coup

Although Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella hasn’t fundamentally changed Microsoft’s core business ever since taking over from Steve Ballmer, one thing we’ve noticed is that Nadella is much better at sticking subtle daggers into rivals. So where Microsoft under Ballmer used to go after Google with all the subtlety of a steroid-infused elephant with megaphones strapped to each if its tusks — remember the painfully awful “Scroogled” campaign, for instance — Nadella has been adept at coming up with clever ways to undermine Google’s domination of its own Android mobile platform.

Apple Watch gets huge spreads in two more top magazines

Did you know that the Apple Watch is currently in the midst of a world tour? Not a physical one, of course — we’ll have to wait until April for that — but rather a print tour, popping up in some of the most popular magazines around the world.

Last week, we got an early look at the spread appearing in the March issue of Vogue, and now China’s East Touch and England’s The Sunday Times have joined in as well. More →

Meet the one auto CEO who’s excited by the rumored Apple Car

With mounting evidence that Apple is at the very least exploring the possibility of developing a car, we’ve seen the expected influx of comments from auto industry veterans skeptical of Apple’s plans.  A few weeks ago, for example, former GM CEO Dan Akersson cautioned Apple that they have no idea what they’re getting into. Shortly thereafter, Mercedes-Benz chief Dieter Zetsche essentially laughed off the notion that an Apple Car might pose any sort of competitive threat.

Hilarious video shows how you can get free stuff by pretending you just won an Oscar

What would you do if you won an Oscar? I’ll tell you: you’d probably attend all of the Hollywood parties with the cast and crew of whatever project you worked on. But what if you didn’t have a cast and crew? What if you never actually won an Oscar in the first place, you just made a fake Oscar statue to carry around on the night of the Academy Awards?

Hands-on with the best Android smartwatch that has ever been made

Coming to MWC 2015 I thought the LG Watch Urbane was going to be the sexiest new wearable device in town, but I soon discovered that was not going to be the case.

While the most interesting mobile toys introduced on Sunday came from two of the most important Android smartphone makers in the world, HTC and Samsung, other companies made several announcements as well. Among them, you could easily spot a new wearable device coming out of China — the Huawei Watch, which might just be the only Android smartwatch you should care about right now. More →

Banks are ‘scrambling’ to stamp out Apple Pay-related fraud

It apparently hasn’t taken very long for scammers to figure out ways to commit fraud with Apple Pay. The Guardian’s Charles Arthur writes that some banks are “scrambling” to fix Apple Pay-related problems on their end that have allowed criminals to use the platform to buy goods with stolen identities and credit card information.
