This is what a more fashionable Apple Watch might look like

We’re at least a few months out from the release of the Apple Watch, but just about everyone has sounded off with their opinions of Apple’s first wearable. Whether its watchmakers or the general public, there seems to have been a wide range of reactions. One of the groups that many of us were most interested to hear from was the fashion industry, if for no other reason than to know whether or not we’d look ridiculous wearing an Apple Watch. The response was divisive, but many designers were impressed with the smartwatch. More →

The iPhone 6 just isn’t cool enough for some consumers

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are poised to be the biggest launches in the history of the company. Thousands of fans lined up for days in anticipation of the release while others got up at 3 a.m. last week to preorder online before the first batch inevitably sold out. In other words, iPhone is as hot a commodity now as it was last year… but is it still cool to own an iPhone? More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Conan thinks Apple could do more to help U2 haters

Inexplicably, the biggest tech-related controversy of the month has without a doubt been the release of U2’s new album. When Tim Cook and Bono announced that Songs of Innocence would be injected into everyone’s iTunes account without their permission, the Internet proceeded to lose its collective mind. There were op-eds, angry tweets and enough vitriol to force Apple to provide a simple solution for removing the album that it paid $100 million to give out for free. But what if Apple didn’t go far enough? More →

OnePlus One preorder program will launch near the end of October

There have been plenty of fantastic Android smartphones released over the last year, but none have generated quite as much excitement as the surprising OnePlus One. Seemingly from out of nowhere, OnePlus burst onto the scene with its new smartphone featuring a range of impressive specifications and an open source operating system. Obviously, Android users were champing at the bit to get their hands on the phone, but months later, the phone still isn’t available to the public. More →

In the wake of iOS 8, the operating system that will power the soon-to-be-shipped iPhone 6, coverage of Android L has slowed to a crawl. Android L debuted over the summer to an overwhelmingly positive response, but as Google has been very deliberate about actually bringing the new OS to Android phones, many Android users have simply moved on with their lives. Thankfully, they might not have to wait much longer. More →

How this hidden iOS 8 add-on is protecting your Internet anonymity

Apple is calling iOS 8 the biggest update to its mobile operating system since the addition of the App Store. That’s a bold claim, but as the adoption rate slowly climbs in anticipation of the iPhone 6 launch, users are finding plenty of new features to back it up. Widgets, extensions and Continuity have received a majority of the attention from early adopters, but Fast Company has brought our attention to another hidden add-on that could help address important privacy concerns.
