This is one of the most interesting we’ve ever read. More →

New app lets you take awesome interactive 3D photos with your iPhone – and it’s free

New app lets you take awesome interactive 3D photos with your iPhone – and it’s free

3D photography is a very cool area of tech that is getting increasingly popular, but there’s a pretty sizable barrier right now. In order to capture 3D imagery, you need to buy dedicated 3D scanning hardware that is often quite expensive, and most people don’t want to be bothered with it. That will continue to be the case for some time when it comes to complex 3D imaging, but a new app from Swiss software company Dacuda adds very cool 3D imaging capabilities to your iPhone.

And the best part is that a beta version of the company’s new app is available today, and it’s completely free to download. More →

The Canadian Competition Bureau wants to have a closer look at Apple’s contracts with local carriers, as it’s interested in whether or not they contain any special clauses that might harm competition in the region. Reuters reports that the Federal Court of Canada on Wednesday agreed to order Apple to turn over all such documents to the Competition Bureau. More →

This great free app tells you when you’re in a store that accepts Apple Pay

This great free app tells you when you’re in a store that accepts Apple Pay

Apple’s mobile payment solution Apple Pay will someday be among several similar offerings that are ubiquitous in the United States. These great mobile device-based payment solutions will be accepted everywhere and consumers will no longer need to carry credit cards or even cash. But as we said in our recent coverage of a smart card called Coin, that future is still far off in the distance.

In the meantime, most retail establishments don’t accept Apple Pay. So, if you want to use Apple’s new mobile payment solution, you’ll first need to figure out whether or not it even works in the store you’re visiting.

Now, figuring that out is easier than ever thanks to a free iPhone app called Chameleon. More →

Apple iPhone 6 16GB Vs. 64GB

Another reason Apple should (but probably won’t) kill off 16GB iPhones

Another reason Apple should (but probably won’t) kill off 16GB iPhones

One thing that many Apple fans have criticized the company for this year has been releasing 16GB models of both its newest iPhones and iPads even though it’s clear that most users need more storage on those devices. Now Business Insider points us to a new study that offers still more fodder against Apple’s insistence on making 16GB the lowest possible tier for storage space on its iPhones and iPads. More →

iPhone and Android are about to take another huge step toward replacing your wallet

The iPhone and or Android handsets might become even more important personal devices in the future, The Wall Street Journal reports, as users may soon store their driver’s licenses in a special app on their phones.

Apple iPhone Antitrust Investigation

The special treatment the iPhone gets from carriers might land Apple in trouble

The special treatment the iPhone gets from carriers might land Apple in trouble

Apple is the only smartphone maker in the world that deals with carriers on its own terms. The company is in firm control of the operating system running on its iPhones, which is always bloatware-free and which gets updated directly from Apple. In fact, carriers don’t even get to stick their logos on the handset. In spite of that, mobile operators simply can’t afford not to have the iPhone in stores, as T-Mobile’s John Legere has recently revealed, which means they’re ready to agree to Apple’s draconian terms.

But Reuters reports that the Canadian Competition Bureau is now looking into Apple’s deals with local carriers. More →
