iPhone 6 Plus Vs Galaxy Note 3

This is what it’s like to switch from the Galaxy Note 3 to the iPhone 6 Plus

This is what it’s like to switch from the Galaxy Note 3 to the iPhone 6 Plus

Is the iPhone 6 Plus really going to steal business away from Android? For smartphone enthusiasts and investors, that’s one of the most important questions of the fall shopping season, and the answer to that question could have a dramatic impact on both mobile ecosystems moving forward. It’s obviously far too soon to judge the long-term impact Apple’s first phablet will have on Android vendors, though early indications suggest that the larger iPhones are indeed pulling a huge number of Android users into the Apple’s ecosystem.

This is a topic we’ll be focusing on a great deal in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, however, a great expert opinion has formed over on CNET, where a longtime Galaxy Note users reveals whether or not the Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus has been able to replace his trusty Galaxy Note 3. More →

iPhone 6 Review

Beloved Apple blogger shares iPhone 6’s ‘most disappointing aspect’

Beloved Apple blogger shares iPhone 6’s ‘most disappointing aspect’

Among the thousands of bloggers around the world covering the Apple beat, John Gruber is likely the most beloved and respected by Apple fans. His analyses are often sharp and insightful, and we always enjoy his frank style — even when he’s launching attacks aimed at us. So, when Gruber takes to his blog Daring Fireball and reviews Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it’s safe to assume that his is one of the few reviews out there that is actually worth reading. And an equally safe assumption is that we should take note when he shares his thoughts on “the single-most disappointing aspect of the new phones.” More →

iOS 8 Vs Android

How to get iOS 8’s best new features on Android even before iPhone users get them

How to get iOS 8’s best new features on Android even before iPhone users get them

When CEO Tim Cook and his fellow Apple executives unveils iOS 8’s great new features on stage during their WWDC 2014 keynote presentation back in June, the most dramatic audience response might have come when the crew unveiled iOS 8’s new Continuity features. With this great new functionality, iOS devices and Mac computers will be more closely connected than ever, able to quickly and easily exchange files and other data. Better still, iOS device notifications appear on a user’s connected Mac, and messages can even be sent and received right from within OS X.

But there’s a catch: despite the fact that Apple released iOS 8 to the public on Wednesday, none of this awesome new functionality is available to iPhone and iPad users yet. If you have an Android smartphone or tablet, however, all of these great features and more are already available thanks to a single fantastic app. More →

Galaxy Note 4 Release Date

Finally: Galaxy Note 4 launches October 17th, preorders start tomorrow

Finally: Galaxy Note 4 launches October 17th, preorders start tomorrow

Samsung managed to beat Apple to the punch by unveiling its flagship phablet for 2014 before Apple made its new iPhone 6 Plus official, but unfortunately announcing a phone and launching a phone are two very different things. Android fans know exactly what they have to look forward to when the Galaxy Note 4 finally hits store shelves, but they won’t be able to get one in their hands until nearly a month from now; Samsung announced on Thursday that it will begin taking preorders for the new Galaxy Note 4 on Friday, September 19th — which also just happens to be iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch day — ahead of an October 17th release.

How to use all the awesome new Messages features in iOS 8

Beyond the thousands of new APIs available to developers behind the scenes, every in-built Apple application in iOS has been updated with fresh new functionality in iOS 8.

One of the most frequently used iOS apps on the planet is Messages, and this app in particular has been stuffed with tons of awesome new functionality. Do you know how to use all of Messages’ great new features? The answer is almost definitely no, but you’ve come to the right place.

Apple Vs Paypal

Former exec bashes PayPal for bashing Apple

Former exec bashes PayPal for bashing Apple

Earlier this week, PayPal joined a long line of companies that sought to mock, belittle or bash Apple in marketing messages in an effort to promote competitive offerings. Focusing on the recent “Nudegate” scandal in which hundreds of nude photos and videos of celebrities were leaked as a result of iCloud breaches, Paypal posted a promotional note suggesting that because iCloud was hacked using brute force attacks, Apple’s new mobile payment service Apple Pay is not secure.

It remains to be seen if PayPal’s efforts will yield any gains, but history is not on the company’s side. So far all we’re seeing is backlash, and the latest shots at PayPal were fired by a former executive. More →
