Spending time with family and reflecting on what we’re most thankful for on Thanksgiving may soon be a thing of the past in America, where the deeply discounted deals Black Friday is known for has spilled over to Thanksgiving Day. The Associated Press cites data from research firm MarketTrack and Adobe’s market research arm in reporting that the best deals of the season will be available not on Black Friday this year, but one day earlier on Thanksgiving.

You have to check out this unique iPhone app that adds a game to your Today widgets

Apple’s massive iOS 8 update was released this past September and developers are still updating their apps to take full advantage of the thousands of new capabilities Apple added in its new mobile software. In fact, developers will continue to add new features made possible by iOS 8 for many months to come.

One of the most interesting new user-facing features added in iOS 8 is the addition of Today widget support, which is a battery-friendly compromise that adds widget functionality to iPhones and iPads but moves it off of the home screen. And now, a new app has brought what is definitely one of the most fun and creative Today widgets we’ve seen so far. More →

Moto X Android Lollipop Update

Android 5.0 hits the world’s best Android phone from the nation’s top carrier

Android 5.0 hits the world’s best Android phone from the nation’s top carrier

Now this is an interesting development. Rarely do you see a fresh new Android update reach a carrier-branded smartphone before the update is even finished rolling out to “pure Google” devices. Even more rare is a scenario where a Verizon Wireless smartphone is among the first handsets in the world to be updated to the latest and greatest version of Android.

It just so happens that the stars were aligned perfectly on Monday evening, however, and the world’s best Android phone was updated to Android 5.0 at the nation’s top wireless carrier. More →

The holidays are almost here: These are the best smartphones you can buy

Back at the start of the year after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5, I suggested that smartphone fans might be in for another boring year in 2014. In some ways, 2014 was boring; we really didn’t see anything that introduced truly novel or revolutionary new features added to smartphones this year. But phones still progressed in 2014, growing faster, sleeker and more powerful than they have ever been before, and there were some terrific phones that launched this year.

As we move into the holiday shopping season, here are the five best high-end smartphones you can buy. More →

Holiday Buying Guide Tablets

The holidays are almost here: These are the best tablets you can buy

The holidays are almost here: These are the best tablets you can buy

When Apple’s iPad first started blowing up and other consumer electronics companies rushed to copy it, tablets were seen as the next huge growth market. Fast-forward to 2014 and we’re already seeing sales growth slow to a crawl. For many, tablets are nonessential devices and they also don’t needed to be upgraded as frequently as a smartphone, so it makes sense that the market for slates is much smaller.

Of course, tablets are still fantastic devices for millions of consumers out there. They also still make great holiday gifts, so here are the five best tablets on the market. More →
