Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Samsung has managed to make quite a name for itself over the years — in more ways than one.

And now, it looks like Samsung might be back to its old tricks with the upcoming new Galaxy S6. More →

Now comes word that the smartwatch market Apple is poised to enter come April is ripe for a classic Apple takeover. With seemingly little competition, you might even say that the smartwatch market is Apple’s to lose. More →
