Whether or not you actually plan on picking up an Apple Watch next month, if you’re even moderately invested in the world of technology, you have to be curious to see how Apple’s first wearable pans out.

It might not be seen as much of a risk, considering everything Apple has put out in recent years sells like hotcakes, but if it were to fail, the smartwatch market could take a permanent blow. More →

Video: Watch a replay of the entire HTC One M9 reveal right here

We all knew that we would see the HTC One M9 this weekend, but we had no idea it would be the least exciting product announced at the company’s MWC 2015 press conference.

That’s not to say that the One M9 isn’t an impressive device — although, for all intents and purposes, it’s a remaster of last year’s One M8, there’s no denying that it’s still one of the best Android devices on the market… but the Grip and the Vive are what really kept us hooked. More →

Apple Watch gets huge spreads in two more top magazines

Did you know that the Apple Watch is currently in the midst of a world tour? Not a physical one, of course — we’ll have to wait until April for that — but rather a print tour, popping up in some of the most popular magazines around the world.

Last week, we got an early look at the spread appearing in the March issue of Vogue, and now China’s East Touch and England’s The Sunday Times have joined in as well. More →

Hilarious video shows how you can get free stuff by pretending you just won an Oscar

What would you do if you won an Oscar? I’ll tell you: you’d probably attend all of the Hollywood parties with the cast and crew of whatever project you worked on. But what if you didn’t have a cast and crew? What if you never actually won an Oscar in the first place, you just made a fake Oscar statue to carry around on the night of the Academy Awards?

Think wearables: HTC joins the fitness world with the HTC Grip

HTC’s big news out of Mobile World Congress 2015 is the HTC One M9, but the company had another surprise for the audience in Barcelona: the HTC Grip. That’s right, HTC is building it’s own wearable device. We’ve seen plenty of fitness bands over the past several years, but HTC thinks that it can target a group of athletes who aren’t getting what they need from the current selection. More →

HTC One M9 Hands On

HTC One M9 hands-on: You can’t fix what isn’t broken

HTC One M9 hands-on: You can’t fix what isn’t broken

After months of rumors and speculation, the HTC One M9 is finally here.

Then again, you might not have realized it unless you were paying very close attention. HTC says that the design of the M9 is a mashup of the best aspects of the M7 and the M8, and although that may be the case, it has resulted in a phone so familiar that you might mistake it for last year’s model.

Here’s the catch: last year’s model is still one of the best Android smartphones on the market.

HTC Grip Review Pt. 1 Hands On

HTC Grip hands-on: The fitness band for casual athletes and pros alike

HTC Grip hands-on: The fitness band for casual athletes and pros alike

I’m not sure if there’s still room in the market for more smart health and fitness trackers, but HTC thinks that one group of consumers is being woefully underserved by the current lineup.

As HTC explained to me at a recent press event, most of the current products are for people who are trying to motivate themselves to get off the couch. People who are training for marathons or have a regimented workout routine don’t need an app to tell them that they’ve run 25 miles — they need a device that will actually do something with that information.
