Foxconn goes on a hiring spree to meet iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus demand

Sorry, Apple haters: ‘Bendgate’ won’t kill the iPhone 6

Admit it — you were one of the thousands of people who at least momentarily believed Apple’s latest smartphone was as pliable as a stick of gum. After a few scattered reports began to circulate, it was only a matter of time before isolated incidents became signs of “design flaws.” By the time the Unbox Therapy bend-test video hit, there was no turning back.

OnePlus’s One sequel set for mid-2015 launch

There weren’t many smartphones that received even a fraction of the buzz that the iPhone 6 did this year, but the OnePlus One somehow managed to find its way on to that list. With an aggressive marketing campaign and an air of mystery surrounding it, the CyanogenMod handset piqued the interest of the Android community right away, but nine months later, the phone still isn’t available to the public. Nevertheless, OnePlus doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon. More →

Another huge iOS 8 bug could delete your iCloud Drive files

Apple was quick to release an updated version of its latest mobile operating system after the iOS 8.0.1 rollout proved disastrous, but it appears that the company is still quite a ways from ironing out all the bugs. Last week, security research Stefan Esser noted that QuickType was offering up his unique passwords as autocorrect suggestions, and now MacRumors forum users are reporting that the ‘Reset All Settings’ feature on iOS 8 is deleting iWork documents from the newly-implemented iCloud Drive service.

How Apple’s iconic Fifth Avenue store came to be

Eight years after its grand opening, the Fifth Avenue Apple Store is one of the most iconic retail locations in all of New York City. The enormous glass cube attracts tourists and locals alike — a monument to Apple’s success in recent years. The store has become so heavily ingrained in Midtown Manhattan that it’s difficult to imagine an empty plaza in front of the GM building, but that’s exactly what it was before real estate mogul Harry Macklowe stepped in.

Forza Horizon 2 review: On the open road

There are a few vital elements to any great road trip. The most important is the vehicle, which happens to be the method of transportation from Point A to Point B to Point C and beyond. Next is the radio, creating the impromptu soundtrack to all the best road trips. Finally, the company — a road trip is just a long drive without good company. Forza Horizon 2 is as close to a virtual road trip as I’ve ever experienced, and best of all, this road trip never has to end. More →

‘It’s just a matter of time’ before iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus are available in China

One of the biggest surprises during the Apple event earlier this month was the revelation that China would not be on the list of countries to receive the first wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus shipments. A week after launch, the new phones still haven’t even been approved for sale in the most populous country on Earth, but Tencent reported on Tuesday that Apple is finally reaching the last stages of review.

Sony HT-ST5 Sound Bar Review

Sony’s new sound bar is changing the way I watch TV

Sony’s new sound bar is changing the way I watch TV

I’ve always considered myself a utilitarian when it comes to my home entertainment center. I don’t need the four-speaker surround sound system, the wall mount or even the nice leather chair — just give me a couch and a television and I’m set. That’s always been my stance and I thought it always would be… until I tried out Sony’s new HT-ST5 sound bar. More →
