I have bought and returned an iPhone 6 Plus 10 times, please send help

It’s entirely possible this could be classified as an actual mental illness. But there’s just something about the iPhone 6 Plus that draws me in about a week after I switch back to my iPhone 6. It goes something like this…

There’s nothing wrong with the iPhone 6. It’s the best smartphone not only in the world, but ever made. It’s gorgeous, it’s luxury-level premium, it’s the phone Apple wishes they could have made 7 years ago — it is completely perfect. Though, as someone who has always bought the best available iPhone, it kind of hurts that there’s one a bit better. Better is a relative term, obviously, but the screen on the iPhone 6 Plus is just perfection with its higher resolution display, and it’s entirely noticeable to me. There’s also optical image stabilization in the camera, though that’s not the biggest deal as the regular iPhone’s camera is a joy. You also get a bigger battery with the iPhone 6 Plus. More →

T-Mobile wins a big victory over AT&T and Verizon that could bring lower prices

Score another win for the “Un-carrier.” Ars Technica notes that T-Mobile has now “won a declaratory ruling that could force AT&T and Verizon Wireless to charge lower prices for data roaming.” Essentially, T-Mobile has been arguing that America’s two biggest carriers have been charging unfairly high prices for data roaming that artificially kept the price of its services higher than it should be.

Businessweek trolls BlackBerry in the most brutal way imaginable

The BlackBerry Classic is definitely something of a throwback to old BlackBerry Bold models, although it definitely features much better specs and software than those smartphone relics. However, Bloomberg Businessweek has just posted a “hands on” article about the Classic that brutally trolls the device by showing it being held by a pair of bony skeletal hands, as you can see in the picture above. The message is clear: The Classic feels ancient and dead. More →

BlackBerry Classic Best Features

Here’s why I love what BlackBerry’s doing with the Classic

Here’s why I love what BlackBerry’s doing with the Classic

I tease BlackBerry a lot but I’m actually hoping the company is successful. Why? Because I think it serves an important niche and its devices make customers within that niche very happy. And under CEO John Chen, the company has embraced its role as a niche player and has stopped trying to desperately keep up with Apple and Google, which is a fight that it was destined to lose pretty much from the start.
