Black iPhone 7 Photo

I really want a black iPhone 7 after seeing this photo

When Apple ditched the black color option during the jump from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone 6, I wasn’t quite sure how to feel. I had owned plenty of silver phones back in the cell phone stone age, but black was always my go-to color for smartphones. When I finally got my hands on the iPhone 6 though, I was a huge fan of the Space Gray color. It was a breath of fresh air while every other company out there was churning out black phones.

Of course since Apple shifted over to Space Gray, plenty of other companies quickly followed and now the color is pretty common. As such, it wasn’t terribly surprising to see rumors that Apple might be planning a new black or deep blue color for this year’s iPhone 7. I was initially far more excited about the possibility of the latter, but now a new photo has me wishing Apple’s next iPhone was back in black. More →

iPhone 7 Pro Photo

Photo that just leaked shows separate iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro models

Photo that just leaked shows separate iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro models

Is Apple’s new 2016 phablet going to be called the iPhone 7 Plus? Will it be called the iPhone 7 Pro instead, so that Apple’s iPhone branding aligns with its iPad branding? Or will Apple launch two different phablet models, including the Plus we’re all expecting and a higher-end Pro?

As much as we already know about Apple’s upcoming new iPhone lineup, there are still plenty of questions that remain unanswered. We know new iPhones are coming and we know exactly what they’re going to look like thanks to countless leaks. We also know plenty about their specs and features — including Apple’s widely publicized decision to ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. There has been a bit of confusion as far as how many new iPhones Apple is planning to announce though, and a new leak might shed some light on it. More →

Leaked photo shows the iPhone 7 we all want but aren’t going to get

Leaked photo shows the iPhone 7 we all want but aren’t going to get

Apple’s next-generation iPhones are anything but a mystery at this point. We’ve seen countless leaks that show the housings from Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro, so we know exactly what to expect when it comes to the look of the phones. Then there have been countless more reports covering the new iPhones’ features as well — some of which were almost certainly planted by Apple itself — so we likely also already know what to expect in terms of functionality. But a new leaked photo shows something we shouldn’t expect, and it’s a bit of a bummer because every single iPhone owner out there wishes it was going to be a reality. More →

Does Tesla hate its own customers?

Does Tesla hate its own customers?

Among for-profit companies born in Silicon Valley, few have a nobler cause than Tesla. Make no mistake, Tesla is a publicly traded company and its goal first and foremost is to make money. But unlike most companies in and around the Valley, it’s changing the world for the better while it makes money. It doesn’t build useless iPhone apps and it’s not trying to launch an Uber for kitty litter. Tesla makes electric cars and has singlehandedly sped up the transition in the automotive industry from gas to alternative fuel sources by a decade at the very least.

With all that in mind, it’s difficult to comprehend how a company doing so much good can hate its customers so much at the same time. More →

Hands on with the shockingly sleek Moto Z and Moto Z Force

In an industry where it’s practically impossible to keep anything a secret, Lenovo managed to surprise most people when it unveiled the Moto Z and Moto Z Force last month. These new phones featured gorgeous new designs and cutting-edge specs, and they also outdid LG by introducing a better modular accessory system than the one on the LG G5.

I finally spent some time with both new phones this morning and I can already say that they live up to the hype… and then some. More →

Look at this new leaked photo and tell me which phone is hotter than the iPhone 7

Serious question: Which smartphone out there right now is hotter than the upcoming iPhone 7?

We’re about two months away from seeing the next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro unveiled on stage by Apple. But as has been the case for the past several years, there’s precious little mystery left. If all the recent leaks and rumors pan out — and most of them will — we already know about nearly all of the new specs and features the iPhone 7 will include, and we also know exactly what it will look like. And it’s the phone’s looks that have caused the biggest stir. More →

Galaxy Note 7 looks stunning in new leaked photos

On Tuesday evening, Samsung announced the date on which it plans to announce the Galaxy Note 7. Odd that it would confirm the name of a phone ahead of its announcement without providing any additional details, but that doesn’t make the upcoming unveiling any less exciting. The new Galaxy Note 7 phablet is expected to be the sleekest and most powerful smartphone Samsung has ever created, and now a new set of leaked photos likely gives us a good look at the upcoming new Galaxy Note 7 from just about every angle.

The next brilliant feature coming to Pokemon Go: Ads

The next brilliant feature coming to Pokemon Go: Ads

My wife took a few extra minutes to get to work on Tuesday morning. It wasn’t because of the traffic, though the area where we live in Northern New Jersey has plenty of that. It was because she had to wait for a young couple to catch the Pokemon that had wandered up our driveway.

Everyone is playing Pokemon Go, the long-awaited and hotly anticipated game co-created by Nintendo. Available for both iOS and Android, Pokemon Go is an augmented reality scavenger hunt that tasks players with chasing down and capturing Pokemon in the real world. The app takes players all over as they try to catch as many Pokemon as possible, but the locations they have to visit in order to catch Pokemon will be a little less random in the near future.

That’s right, get ready for ads to invade Pokemon Go. More →

Samsung just made the Galaxy Note 7 official, but it won’t confirm any details

In something of an unconventional move on Tuesday evening, Samsung announced that it will announce the Galaxy Note 7.

Maybe we should clarify.

The world’s No. 1 smartphone company by shipment volume confirmed in a blog post on Tuesday that it will unveil its next-generation Galaxy Note 7 during a press conference next month. The event will take place in New York City on August 2nd, aligning perfectly with a number of earlier rumors that suggested Samsung’s new Note phablet would debut on that date. Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t confirm any other details about the phone or when it might be released. More →

Let’s talk about how hot the iPhone 7 looks in these leaked photos

Let’s talk about how hot the iPhone 7 looks in these leaked photos

OK, dear readers, it’s time for another quick chat about the iPhone 7. Walk with me.

Last week I decided I just couldn’t take all this talk about how “boring” the iPhone 7 is shaping up to be, so I wrote something about it. I mean seriously, does this new phone really sound boring to you? Really? That article resulted in thousands of shares on social media, hundreds of comments and dozens of emails. Many people disagreed with me and many more agreed, but there’s little question based on our coverage thus far that the iPhone 7 is the most hotly anticipated smartphone of the year — boring or not.

Another day, another leak, another reason to revisit this polarizing issue. More →
