My go to device is an ip5, not cuz it's better than competing android devices but simply cuz I'm vested in the iOS Eco system, and like a lot of the ways the ip5 works. It has its short coming believe me, but so does my one x. Choose wisely is all I can say. Hope all is well bro 10. PhenomFaz (Posts: 1236; Member since: 26 Sep 2012) long time mate!

The e-mail is nice, but in and of itself proves at best, an absence of intent to copy. If the patents are ruled valid, copying or not, Sammy is going have to prove Apple is not entitled to an award in the 10 figure range. If the patents are ruled invalid, whether Sammy copied or not does not matter. posted on 14 Aug 2012, 03:38 5 4.

Any company can develop a powerful laptop. After all, everyone uses the same internal components: Intel Core processors, Nvidia or AMD graphics chips, and lightning-fast solid-state drives. You can even do it yourself if you have the knowhow, but Dell and Apple have the resources and institutional knowledge to take things a step further than the competition.The Dell XPS 15 and MacBook Pro 15 are natural rivals. Set them on a desk beside each other, and the comparisons almost make themselves. They’re both thoughtfully constructed from premium materials, feature high-end internal components, and they’re both flagship products from their respective companies.Each one represents thousands upon thousands of hours of research, development, and industrial design — and it shows.

Now that invites for the October 27 Apple event have seen sent out, there's much speculation about what we will, and won't, see from a purported new generation of MacBook Pro laptops. Thus far, the generally agreed-upon predictions -- as rounded up by Macrumors -- are: New MacBook Pros with a thinner, lighter design and a secondary touchscreen at the top of the keyboard. That tiny screen is said to be replacing the function key row and providing context-based commands -- different "soft" buttons which would vary depending on the app in use. Possible minor updates to the MacBook Air, which is one of the longest-standing designs in the Apple universe. A minor spec bump may be in store for the iMac desktops.The elevated level of interest in new MacBooks, especially with an expected major redesign such as this, is reflected in many of the messages I receive from CNET readers. Among the most common email topics is a variation on: "When will product X get updated?"

While I’m all about encasing my Apple iPhone 6S in the sturdiest, most rubbery protector I can find and afford, I realize others are much more into style.Three case makers sent me samples over the past month that all might appeal to the fashionista set, or really just anyone who wants to look good while texting, Web surfing or paying by phone.All three iPhone cases are made with leather, so PETA members beware. This case certainly makes the boldest statement of the three products that came my way, as it is a beautiful combination wallet and phone case made from Italian leather. It even came in a handsome cardboard envelope, complete with a wax seal.My version came in light brown on the outside and dark blue on the inside, where it includes a roughly form-fitting pouch for the phone, with a notch carved out so that you can access the Touch ID button for using Apple Pay without removing the phone.The product features 5 slots for credit, etc., cards, plus 2 openings for money … [Read more...] about iPhone case review: Leathery goodness
Apple Pay isn't the first mobile payment service, but it has quickly emerged as the leader. Part of Apple Pay's appeal lies in its ease of use. All you need to do is bring your iPhone close to a supported payment terminal and touch the Home button. No unlocking required. You can even pay with a tap of your wrist if you own an Apple Watch.Apple Pay is also evolving fairly quickly, with Apple planning to add support in the next iOS update for store-issued credit and debit cards, as well as loyalty cards. With iOS 9, you'll be able to easily access all of these cards from Wallet, the replacement app for Passbook on your iOS device.However, there are plenty of retailers that don't support Apple Pay yet, and it doesn't work with all iOS devices.

The iPhone we’ve been hearing rumors about for months is finally real, so let the anguish over its confirmed lack of a headphone jack begin. (Since this might have been the worst-kept secret in Apple history, hopefully you’ve worked through a few stages of grief already.)It’s true. Apple used the space freed up by removing the headphone port to add a Taptic Engine under the hood, as well as a second speaker to the bottom of the device. The company says this will give you stereo sound, and the speakers did sound louder, but the busy demo area was just too crowded and noisy to properly evaluate how much of a difference the second speaker makes. In fact, during my limited hands-on time after Apple’s September 7 event, I found the iPhone 7 ho-hum—it’s faster and it’s got a better camera, but a lot of the changes (the new Home button, the dual speakers) are too subtle to make much of a first impression.About that Taptic Engine, for … [Read more...] about iPhone 7 hands-on: Perfectly adequate, still underwhelming
