Video: Don’t be fooled by this extremely detailed iPhone 6 clone running Android

The iPhone 6 isn’t even out yet and it already has a few clones that mimic its appearance and software very well, with 9to5Google having found a new video hands-on demo of one such device. While the clone is based on the leaked dummy iPhone 6 units that flooded the Internet and is fully working, it’s not actually running iOS 8. Instead, it’s running an Android version that has been customized to look just like iOS. More →

iPhone 5s Vs Train

Video: Want to see what happens when an iPhone 5s gets run over by a train? Of course you do

Video: Want to see what happens when an iPhone 5s gets run over by a train? Of course you do

The iPhone 5s is amazingly solid for a smartphone made entirely of glass and ultra-thin aluminum. It looks great, it feels great and it can survive its fair share of drops as long as it doesn’t hit a hard surface on its corner. But can it survive being run over by a speeding train? More →

Jimmy Kimmel pranks strangers with a fake Apple iTime smartwatch

Jimmy Kimmel is the best in the business when it comes to making unsuspecting passersby look like complete morons. On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel’s crew took to Hollywood Blvd. with Apple’s unreleased iTime smartwatch, first revealed in a patent application earlier this week, to gauge the public reaction. The only problem was that the watch in question was actually a $20 Casio watch with an Apple logo stuck to the back. As you can probably guess, a lot of people didn’t catch on, and the resulting video is pretty hysterical. More →

Apple is building stores in India just for iPhones and iPads

Apple is planning to open stores in India which will only sell iOS devices following significant growth in sales of the iPhone and iPad over the past several years.

Apple will also take on 50% of the cost for the 10-15 demo units required to appear at each location. More →

iPhone 6 makes Apple the biggest client of the world’s top chip supplier

Digitimes reported on Wednesday that Apple was primed to become TSMC’s biggest client as the foundry ramps up production of the A8 processors for the iPhone 6. More →

WTF of the week: Apple could be ‘obsolete’ in 2-3 years

WTF of the week: Apple could be ‘obsolete’ in 2-3 years

At some point in the future, Apple will no longer be the consumer technology giant it is today. It will become obsolete. Its products will no longer be trendy. Other companies will innovate and drive Apple out of markets it had once dominated. It’s inevitable. It might happen in 10 years or it might happen in 100 years, but it will happen. One of the few things we can safely assume, however is that it will not happen in the next 2-3 years — unless you’re Pedro de Noronha, managing partner at Noster Capital. More →

iPhone 6 vs Metal Samsung Galaxy

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Samsung has already started making fun in a TV commercial of the unreleased iPhone 6, telling potential buyers that its Android handsets had bigger displays for quite a while in an obvious attempt to kill the iPhone 6 buzz and divert attention to its own 2014 flagship handset. But the company appears to actually have a real iPhone 6-related problem, Digitimes reports, which may affect its own smartphone launch plans. Apple’s massive metal chassis orders with suppliers are apparently preventing Samsung from placing its own metal chassis orders for a future iPhone 6 killer that would ditch plastic in favor of metal.
