Many schools have been closed following blizzard warnings, but we doubt any of those schools announced snow days quite like this.

In just a few short days, the biggest television event of the year will be upon us. That’s right — a bunch of very expensive commercials occasionally interrupted by two football teams, one of which just won the Super Bowl last year and another that seems to have cheated its way in. But no matter what you’re watching for, you’re going to want to have a big TV. More →
We finally have confirmation on when you’ll be able to get an Apple Watch. During an earnings call on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that Apple is going to start shipping the highly anticipated Apple Watch starting in April this year. This is a little bit later than some of us were expecting, although it generally lines up with reports we’ve read about Apple retail employees getting training on how to use the device next month so they’ll be set to help interested buyers with it at launch.

Yes, it seems that Apple has posted yet another record-smashing earnings report as it generated $74.6 billion in sales and an EPS of $3.06. But there’s one particular number that should really impress us when looking at Apple’s earnings: A huge rise in the average selling price (ASP) for iPhones. More →
Apple’s results for the fiscal first quarter of 2015 are easily the most hotly anticipated earnings report of the season. On the back of the company’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch in mid-September, the holiday quarter marks Apple’s first full quarter of next-generation iPhone sales. With pent-up demand for iPhones with larger displays and a record holiday shopping season in 2014, expectations were sky-high ahead of Apple’s earnings report on Tuesday evening.

Unless you’re the sort of person who keeps a lost iPhone you found in a bar — that’s still called stealing, by the way, and you might not get away with it — you can definitely try to return the device to the rightful owner with the Find My iPhone functionality. The process is quite easy, and you don’t even have to unlock the phone to do it, as Siri can provide a more than helpful hand. More →
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is a man of few words. In fact, during multiple interviews this year, Lynch has only said one sentence in response to every single question asked of him — “I’m thankful” and “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” are two more recent classics. However, Skittles has figured out the secret to get Lynch to open up when asked questions — just give him a bowl of Skittles. More →
Over the past several weeks, we’ve gotten an increasingly clear picture of what the Galaxy S6 is actually going to be. Some have been more reliable than others, and some have even come directly from BGR, but until Samsung actually announces the device, we’re going to continue to do our best to put the pieces together and keep you up to date with the latest rumors.
This week, Polish blog Android.com.pl published one of the most interesting reveals we’ve seen so far. As with all rumors, it’s hard to know which, if any, of the details are factual, but none of it seems to be too far from the realm of possibility. More →
Not only is Apple still making more money than Samsung in the mobile business, but the iPhone maker is threatening Samsung’s lead in the smartphone business for the first time in years, as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus helped Apple sell a huge number of handsets during the Christmas quarter. But the iPhone isn’t Samsung’s only nightmare, as the company faces fierce competition in various markets when it comes to cheaper handsets. China is an area of particular interest, where local smartphone makers are selling more and more impressive low-cost devices. One of them is Xiaomi, which might soon be giving Apple some sleepless nights as well. More →
Ever since the iPhone first hit the market, it was all but inevitable that we would see a litany of clones in the ensuing years. Some have been more subtle than others, such as Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha from late last year, but the most entertaining knockoffs are the ones that are nearly indistinguishable from the real thing.
