A comprehensive guide to repairing the iPhone 6 all by yourself

Something incredible happened with the iPhone 6 — the do-it-yourself repair gurus at iFixit actually gave it a respectable score for repairability.

It also sounds like Google would be prohibited from giving favorable treatment in its search results to its own services. More →

Video: BlackBerry explains why your iPhone is too wimpy to ‘work wide’
