The video featuring that iPhone concept phone has since amassed more than 69 million views on YouTube, and it looks like at least a few of those views were Lenovo employees.

That’s right, Lenovo plans to make that crazy concept a reality. More →

60 seconds is all it takes to protect your iPhone with encryption – here’s how

Unlimited Mobile Data Plans

Here it comes: Get ready for the death of unlimited mobile data plans

Here it comes: Get ready for the death of unlimited mobile data plans

Parting is such sweet sorrow, and I remember how mixed my emotions were when I finally dumped my unlimited data plan on my personal wireless account and switched to one of AT&T’s mobile share plans. I had held onto my old plan for as long as I could in anticipation of the rise of data-hungry mobile services, but the cost benefit of switching and the knowledge that I was just going to be throttled anyway made it silly to hold on any longer.

While Verizon and AT&T built up huge smartphone customer bases in part by luring subscribers in with unlimited data and then practically forcing them onto capped plans, there are still two major U.S. carriers that offer limitless cellular data… for now. More →

Why the iPhone is more important to Google than Android

Though Google these days has its hand in everything, from robotics to advanced AI, the company’s billions by and large continue to come exclusively from advertising. More to the point, 90% of the $66 billion Google generated in revenue in 2014 came directly from advertising-related ventures

Not surprisingly, an increasingly important part of Google’s advertising machine is mobile search. In 2014 alone, 18% of Google’s ad revenue, or about $11.8 billion, came from searches done on mobile devices.
