Survey shows many of you have no idea how much you’re paying for your smartphone

One of the interesting things about smartphone subsidies is that they’ve essentially convinced many people that they’re getting a steal when they buy a smartphone for $200 with a two-year service agreement, even though they’re making up the difference by being obligated to pay the carrier’s contract rate over the next 24 months. Now gadget trade-in website Gazelle has shared some new survey data with us that suggests many us are completely clueless when it comes to how much we’re really paying for our smartphones. More →

How to stop Facebook from eating your iPhone’s precious storage space

If you use the Facebook app regularly on your iPhone, you might notice that it’s gradually taking up more and more storage space on your device.

Facebook has designed its app so that whenever you open a webpage posted by a friend on the Facebook app, it will cache the entire page on your device. This is obviously a problem since the more pages you visit, the more space gradually gets eaten up. More →
