Google Maps for Android just got a great new feature iPhone users will be jealous of

Google Maps for Android just got a great new feature iPhone users will be jealous of

By on March 26, 2015 at 9:54 AM.

Google Maps for Android and Google Maps for the iPhone may never have true feature parity. This is due in part to the limitations Apple puts in place on third-party application developers, but Google also seems to reserve some features and design elements solely for users of its own mobile platform.

One such feature was just added to Google Maps on Wednesday evening, and iPhone users should definitely be jealous. More →

iPhone 6c Rumors

Report claims Apple will shock the world with a third new iPhone model this year

Report claims Apple will shock the world with a third new iPhone model this year

By on March 26, 2015 at 9:31 AM.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus marked Apple’s first foray into the world of larger screened iPhones, a strategy that has worked out exceedingly well for the Cupertino-based company. During the company’s 2014 holiday quarter, for example, Apple sold nearly 75 million iPhones.

With Apple now embracing the world of bigger smartphones, a road admittedly paved by Android many years back, many have wondered if Apple was going to ditch the 4-inch iPhone form factor altogether.

Galaxy S6 Review

Galaxy S6 first impressions: Why can’t I find anything to complain about?

Galaxy S6 first impressions: Why can’t I find anything to complain about?

By on March 26, 2015 at 9:00 AM.

What on Earth is going on right now?

Smartphones are like anything else. When you pick one up it’s fresh and new, and the novelty overpowers everything else. You’re so excited to have this new gadget you’ve been waiting for that you can’t even see its flaws, serious though they may be. Then, over time, the novelty wears off and the flaws become more pronounced, gnawing at you each and every time you pick up your phone. And that’s when the complaining begins.

It has now been about a month since I first used Samsung’s new Galaxy S6… so why can’t I find anything to complain about? More →

Galaxy S6 and S6 edge launch details finally announced – preorders start tomorrow

By on March 26, 2015 at 9:00 AM.

Android fans, it’s time to breathe a sigh of relief. The long wait is almost over and Samsung’s next-generation flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, finally have an official release date: April 10th. And what a day the 10th is going to be, with three flagship smartphones set to be released (Samsung’s two S6 models and the HTC One M9) and Apple Watch pre-orders slated to open up as well.

Where Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are concerned, this post has everything you need to know… well, almost everything — there’s still one big piece missing from the puzzle. More →

Apple Beats Music

You’ll never guess whose job it is to make sure Apple’s streaming music service doesn’t suck

You’ll never guess whose job it is to make sure Apple’s streaming music service doesn’t suck

By on March 26, 2015 at 8:31 AM.

It’s fair to say that Apple completely missed the boat on music streaming. Content with healthy downloads from the iTunes Music Store, Apple gave plenty of breathing room to crafty upstarts like Pandora and Spotify who slowly but surely started putting large dents into the traditional digital download business.

These days, digital downloads are on the decline as consumers are increasingly showing less of an interest in owning their music. Apple, of course, has plans to get into the streaming business thanks to its $3 billion acquisition of Beats Music last year.

That said, Apple’s 2013 rollout of iTunes Radio doesn’t exactly instill confidence that Apple gets music. Which, not surprisingly, is part and parcel why Apple bought Beats in the first place — music industry talent and savvy.

By on March 26, 2015 at 8:00 AM.

Remember when HTC America president Jason Mackenzie announced last week that the new HTC One M9 will be released on April 10th? Well, that’s not entirely true anymore — but don’t worry, the change in launch plans isn’t due to any sort of delay. Instead, the opposite is the case: HTC announced on Thursday morning that its flagship One M9 smartphone will become available for purchase on HTC’s website beginning tonight at midnight.

Android users still annoyed that neither the Galaxy S6 nor the Galaxy S6 edge can offer a few must-have features for Android devices might be better off waiting a few more months, as Samsung is apparently working on a third Galaxy S6 model that will solve the biggest problem people seems to have with the original.

Kickstarter Jide Ultra Remix Tablet

Meet the $399 Android tablet that looks like a Surface Pro and brings Windows-like productivity

Meet the $399 Android tablet that looks like a Surface Pro and brings Windows-like productivity

It sounds too good to be true – and it might very well be, considering the issues with crowdfunding campaigns we’ve seen before. That said, the $39 Surface Pro-like Jide Ultra Remix Android tablet that launched on Wednesday on Kickstarter was a must-buy for many people who scooped up all the units available at the $39 price point as soon as the campaign went live.

And make no mistake, this isn’t your average cheap Android tablet that we’d normally tell you not to buy during Black Friday sales. More →

Watch Jimmy Kimmel explain how he gained 9 pounds in a week at SXSW

If you want to lose weight, spending a week at festivals such as SXSW probably aren’t the best way to get the job done. Jimmy Kimmel recently learned this the hard way when he went down to SXSW and gained nine pounds over the span of just a week by pigging out on the massive quantities of meat being sold at the festival. Kimmel even took pictures of everyone of his meals and challenged his viewers to find any vegetables in them. More →

Facebook Data vs. NSA Spying

EU: Don’t use Facebook if you’re worried about NSA snooping

EU: Don’t use Facebook if you’re worried about NSA snooping

By on March 25, 2015 at 9:00 PM.

The many Snowden revelations, which have detailed the advanced spying and mass data collection operations conducted by some of the world’s most important agencies including the NSA and the GCHQ, have revealed that various U.S. tech companies might also be involved, whether willingly or unwillingly, in some NSA programs. The implications of the leaks detailing the Prism data collection program – that says the NSA has access to personal customer data from various U.S. companies including Apple, Facebook, Skype, Microsoft and Yahoo – might be far greater than initially believed, as they could affect the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework for transatlantic data transfer and connected trade deals.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Review

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is a great reason to own a New 3DS

By on March 25, 2015 at 8:15 PM.

One of the best RPGs of the last generation was smashed down into a bite-sized portion for the New Nintendo 3DS XL, and against all odds, it actually works.

Let me be clear: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is the full Wii game, from start to finish. Every massive landscape, every explosive cutscene, every screen-filling boss battle is present — but it’s been completely reworked to fit on the New 3DS. More →
