Instead, they’re just another handful of images of a well-known iPhone 6 clone running Android underneath an iOS 7 skin. More →

Windows Phone is dying on the vine

There’s a reasonable argument to be made on both sides about whether Microsoft should just dump Windows Phone and move to Android or whether it should stick things out and try to gradually improve its market share. However there is no argument that from a sales standpoint, Windows Phone has been a complete failure so far — and its shipments have actually gotten worse over the last year. More →

How to keep using Facebook chat on your iPhone without installing Facebook Messenger

Facebook gave users fair warning ahead of a recent change that requires people to install a separate iPhone application if they want to keep using Facebook’s messaging feature on their iPhones, but there is still plenty of outrage. So much so, in fact, that the Facebook Messenger app for iOS now has a 1-star average rating in the App Store out of spite.

But if you would rather not use a dedicated app to chat with your Facebook friends, don’t fret: A simple trick will let you keep using the main Facebook app for the iPhone to send and receive messages. More →

Motorola to unveil Moto 360 smartwatch ahead of Apple’s iWatch

We got an invitation in our inboxes this morning for a major new Motorola media event that will take place on September 4th in Chicago.

We’ll also likely be getting an official look at Motorola’s gorgeous Moto 360 smartwatch for the first time, which has achieved the rare status of a smartwatch that people actually seem interested in buying.

Here’s how Apple will make sure you can buy a new iPhone 6 next month

Here’s how Apple will make sure you can buy a new iPhone 6 next month

By on August 14, 2014 at 9:55 AM.

Each year, rumors of impending iPhone shortages at launch tend to subside as Apple and its supply partners miraculously find ways around various manufacturing difficulties in just the nick of time. This year, however, Apple’s move to finally give consumers what they want with a larger display on the iPhone 6 will undoubtedly make keeping up with demand at launch even more difficult than it normally is. And make no mistake, keeping up with iPhone demand is no easy task — Apple sold 9 million handsets through the iPhone 5s and 5c’s first weekend of availability, alone.

So this year, Apple has reportedly made a big change that will help ensure there are enough iPhones to go around when the hotly anticipated new iPhone 6 launches next month. More →

Samsung comes up with a brilliant new way to troll iPhone fans

Even though Samsung’s smartphone profits have taken a hit this year, the company is still No. 1 in finding clever ways to troll iPhone fans. Samsung has started aggressively expanding its “wall huggers” marketing campaign that bashes the iPhone’s battery life and has now set up posters at airport power outlets letting iPhone fans know that they wouldn’t have to spend so much time huddled up near a power supply if they’d just bought a Galaxy S5.
