Amazon has the only Father’s Day gift guide you’ll need this year

Father’s Day 2016 is less than a month away and you have two choices. You can either do what you always do and wait until the very last minute to overpay for a present for your dad that he probably won’t even like, or you can check out Amazon’s great Father’s Day 2016 gift guide and take your time in picking out the perfect gift. We don’t know your father personally, but we would be willing to bet a whole bunch of money that he would prefer the second option over the first. More →

The 8 most important announcements from Google I/O 2016

The tech community was waiting with bated breath ahead of this year’s Google I/O event, but I don’t think anyone expected it to be quite as action-packed as it was. Google covered so much during this year’s big Google I/O 2016 keynote, and even though we were already expecting much of what was covered, there were definitely a few surprises in store. In fact, aside from the famous Larry Page speech at Google I/O 2013, this was easily the best show in years.

Let’s go over all of the biggest announcements from the Google I/O 2016 keynote. More →

Apple WWDC 2016 Dates Announced June 13 June 17

Siri spills the beans on when WWDC 2016 will kick off

Siri spills the beans on when WWDC 2016 will kick off

We all know Apple’s big annual developers’ conference typically takes place in June but it seems that Siri is now giving us the official dates. 9to5Mac notices that if you ask Siri to tell you when WWDC 2016 is, it will respond by informing you that this year’s conference will kick off in San Francisco starting on Monday, June 13th and will wrap off on Friday, June 17th. Apple hasn’t sent out any official invites for the show yet, however, so it looks like Siri’s “announcement” of the show’s official dates might be premature. More →

Apple’s 6 most important announcements from today’s big event

There are two big events that hardcore Apple fans look forward to most each year: WWDC and the September iPhone event. Today’s “Let us loop you in” press conference was neither. While there’s no question that Apple’s first big event of 2016 was less exciting than what we’re used to with Apple, it was still quite a show and we came away with a number of new products to check out.

In this post, we’ve rounded up all of the most important announcements from today’s Apple event so you can read about them in one place. More →

Refresher: Everything you can expect Apple to announce at today’s event

Refresher: Everything you can expect Apple to announce at today’s event

We can’t remember the last time the lead-up to an Apple event was this quiet. As a matter of fact, there might never have been a lead-up to an Apple event that was this quiet. Thanks to leaks and reports from reliable sources, we always know just about everything Apple will announce at its events long before each event actually takes place. Such is the case today as well, but there’s something different this time around: not many people seem to care about the announcements we’re expecting today.

There won’t be an Apple Car or even an iPhone 7 announced on stage by Apple today, but if you think the products Apple is unveiling today aren’t a big deal, you’ve got another thing coming. In this post, we’ll give you a quick refresher of everything you can expect to see from Apple during Monday’s big press conference. More →

All of the biggest announcements are made on press day, and this year’s announcements were bigger than any we’ve seen in recent years.

iOS 10 Features

Simple sleuthing likely just revealed when Apple will unveil iOS 10

Simple sleuthing likely just revealed when Apple will unveil iOS 10

Apple’s 2015 release of iOS 9 was a hotly anticipated update mainly because the prior year’s mobile software, iOS 8, fell short of people’s expectations in some ways. With iOS 9, however, Apple not only added a number of new features but also cleaned up the software to iron out many of the wrinkles users had been complaining about.

iOS 9 isn’t done being updated just yet. Apple released iOS 9.2.1 on Tuesday and another upcoming release, iOS 9.3, adds several of new features such as Night Shade and additional 3D Touch shortcuts. But Apple will unveil iOS 10 later this year during its annual Worldwide Developer Conference, and expectations are high to say the least.

While Apple’s new feature additions for iOS 10 remain a mystery, it looks like the date on which iOS 10 will be unveiled was likely just uncovered by some simple sleuthing. More →

My picks for the 10 most promising products unveiled at CES 2016

It’s easy to get really annoyed at big events like CES 2016 because vendors are constantly pitching you to write about products that just aren’t very good. However, this doesn’t mean that CES is totally worthless but rather that you have to filter out the truly promising products from the products that are just a waste of your time. 10 products announced at CES 2016 really caught my eye this year and I think they have the potential to really go somewhere in the coming years. Let’s check them out. More →

Does Surface Book really crush the MacBook Pro? Microsoft’s bold claim has a big asterisk

Does Surface Book really crush the MacBook Pro? Microsoft’s bold claim has a big asterisk

Microsoft woweed its audience earlier this week with the announcement of its Surface Book, which is basically a beefed up version of the Surface Pro 4. Dubbed as the “ultimate laptop,” the new computer is an impressive 13.5-inch Windows 10 tablet and one of Microsoft’s best creations to date.

But the company apparently also misrepresented what the Surface Book can do in terms of performance, especially when suggesting the device can offer twice the performance of the MacBook Pro. More →
