This is our best look yet at the iPhone 7
Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are shaping up to be less boring than people thought — here's our best look yet...
How much do you pay for internet service at your home? $30? $50? $80? $100 or more. Well, whatever your answer was to that question, you actually got it wrong. You might think your ISP is charging you $60 a month for your home internet service, but you’re actually paying another $8 or $10 each month just to use your cable company’s modem. Well guess what: You can give it back to them and get your own modem, and you’ll never have to pay that fee again.
There’s a new version out of one of our favorite cable modems, and you really have to check it out. The TP-LINK N300 DOCSIS 3.0 (8×4) Wireless Wi-Fi Cable Modem works with Comcast, Time Warner Cable and most other popular cable-based ISPs, and it now supports download speeds up to 343Mbps and upload speeds up to 143Mbps.

Later this afternoon, all eyes will be focused on Apple as the company releases its earnings report for the June quarter. What makes today’s earnings report so important is that Apple last quarter reported its first year-over-year decline in iPhone sales in history. That being the case, investors will be extremely interested to see if last quarter’s iPhone slowdown was an aberration or perhaps a sign of things to come.
Ahead of today’s earnings report, a number of analysts have come out with rather bearish takes on Apple’s financial situation. And perhaps the most negative stance comes from Colin Gillis of BGC Financial L.P. who, in a research note to investors, opines that Apple under the stewardship of Tim Cook has finally peaked.
Kevin Smith talked to four of the stars of The Walking Dead at Comic-Con last week, including Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Steven Yeun (Glenn) and Jeffery Dean Morgan (Negan)… and he actually managed to find out who Negan didn’t kill. Beware, some major spoilers may follow below. More →
Following yesterday’s post — where you’ll find several freebies that are still available for download, mind you — we’re back with yet another installment in our series covering paid iPhone and iPad apps that go on sale for free. We’ve selected the best of the bunch for Tuesday, and they’re all laid out for you in the post below. More →
If you’re a hardcore Android fan who needs to always have the latest and greatest pure Google smartphone, now probably isn’t the best time to buy a new handset. Two next-generation HTC-built Nexus phones will be released in the coming months, and you’re undoubtedly waiting for them to be released before you pull the trigger. But if you want an insanely powerful and capable smartphone at an insanely reasonable price, now is the perfect time to purchase Google’s Nexus 6P phablet because Amazon has knocked $100 off its selling price for all three available models.

Can there possibly still be any questions left unanswered after all of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus leaks we’ve seen over the past month or so? As impossible as it might seem, there actually are still several questions that remain unanswered. We know what Apple’s new iPhones will look like and we might even know exactly when they’re set to be released thanks to a big leak earlier this week. But there are some big mysteries that remain, and we’ve been waiting for one leak in particular to arrive so that what is perhaps the biggest iPhone 7 mystery out there might finally be solved.
The good news is that the leak we’ve been waiting for is finally here. The bad news is that unfortunately, it doesn’t bring us any closer to getting answers. More →
Google about to roll out a cleaner look for Google Maps across desktop, Android and iOS devices – that much Google has already confirmed. But what might be more exciting for Google Maps fans is a new Wi-Fi only mode feature that’s supposed to cut down the use of cellular data.
It might not be Prime Day anymore, but Amazon really turned up the heat on its daily deals today. We’ve got some great coupons on already-discounted devices, a slim 2TB portable hard drive for just $70, $200 off a latest-gen MacBook Air, a 40-inch Roku smart HDTV for $260, 20% or more off portable air conditioners, and plenty more.

Apple’s iPhone has been my main cell phone ever since just after the first model was released back in 2007. To be honest, I don’t see that changing anytime soon. While it was a bit rough around the edges in the early days, Android has grown into a refined and stable mobile platform. It also continues to be more versatile than iOS will ever be, and Android phone makers have come out with some gorgeous hardware that matches or even bests Apple’s iPhones in many ways. But iOS still offers a user experience and a third-party app ecosystem that are both vastly superior to Android in my opinion, and the hardware isn’t half bad either — especially with the new and improved iPhone 7 on the horizon.
That said, there are still plenty of Android features that make me jealous, and that rings especially true for the newest Android feature Google just introduced. More →
We may very well have reached the peak of the iPhone 7 rumor cycle, Apple fans. At this point, unless just about every reliable Apple source out there has been grossly misguided, we know almost everything there is to know about Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We know what they’ll look like, we know about a host of new features they’ll likely include, we know about most of the biggest changes compared to this year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and we even probably know exactly when Apple’s new iPhones will be released.
As much as Apple fans already know, however, they still haven’t grown tired of getting early peeks at next-gen iPhone 7 models. And now, a new video gives us what is undoubtedly our best look yet at the upcoming new iPhone 7. More →
According to a report from Eurogamer, several sources have now confirmed that Nintendo’s next-gen NX will be a portable console with its own display and detachable controllers. NX owners will also be able to connect the system to their televisions if they prefer to play their games on the big screen.
The irony wasn’t lost on me when I realized the most annoying thing about the Apple Watch shortly after I purchased one last year. It was the charging cable. Well, the 27 minutes it took to open and refresh any app was probably the most annoying thing, but the charging cable was a close second. The good news was the fact that the Apple Watch finally came with a charging cable that was actually long enough to reach from a wall outlet to a table, unlike any other iOS device Apple has ever released (hence the irony). The bad news was that it was a proprietary wireless charger, so it meant yet another cable to carry around while traveling. Forgetting it was all too easy, and wouldn’t be long before the first time I traveled and left my Watch charger behind.
Thankfully, someone finally created the Apple Watch charger Apple should have released from the get-go. More →
