iPhone 8 shatters over and over again during tests
Apple says the new glass developed by Corning for its new iPhone 8 is the most durable glass ever used in a smartphone. I can't believe my keyboard didn't burst into flames after I wrote that.
This video was made by SquareTrade which offers extended warranties for consumer electronics. They've taken the time to evaluate for themselves exactly how "durable" this new glass-bodied phone will be so that they can evaluate the likelihood of how often people's phones will break and get replaced/repaired by their warranty. As you've seen above, the results speak for themselves. Most basic tests resulted in hairline cracks, chips, and deep fractures that would make the touch screen useless and the compromise the view-ability of the screen beyond redemption. A six foot drop in many tests left the ...

The iPhone 8 back is made of glass
This is something we haven't seen from Apple since they released the iPhone 4 (which was one of the best looking iPhone's if you ask me). A lot of the design focus with Apple comes down to symmetry and frankly I don't understand using a glass back because it shatters and we found ourselves replacing these glass backs on the iPhone 4 all of ...

The front glass display is supposedly full engaged in biometric authentication too so it can read your thumbprint and unlock the phone regardless of where your thumb is placed on the front of the glass.

Beware the fake iPhone 8 clones starting to hit the internet
Everybody is rearing up and getting excited for the release of the iPhone 8. The most notable feature of the upcoming blockbuster phone is going to be a full surface screen backed by OLED screens which we have not yet seen real pictures of on the internet. Though we're still a few months away from the release, bogus iPhone 8 videos are starting to appear online as part of a scam to get clicks and hype while taking advantage of the enormous buzz around iPhone 8.
This particular dummy device, said to be a CNC model, aligns with design drawings and rumors pointing towards an edge-to-edge display with a glass body encased in a shiny stainless steel frame. There is no Home button and no visible Touch ID sensor, suggesting ...
Could Apple soon become a trillion dollar company?
Notebook sales are up, the iPhone 8 is already poised for a massive success, the App store is having it's most blockbuster year ever, and Apple is working on fully automated self-driving cars. So is there a possibility that Apple could soon become a trillion dollar company? RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani says the answer is yes, and it could even happen in the next 18 months.
An excerpt found on Marcumors of Daryanani's research note, edited slightly for clarity:
In aggregate, we see a scenario where in the 2019 fiscal year, Apple sustains $12+ earnings per share and, assuming the valuation frameworks remains stable/improves, it should get AAPL stock toward $192–$195, which would equate to a market cap above $1 trillion.
Another major driving force in Amit's calculation is the fact that Apple's ability ...

Ever wanted to see what an Automated home by Apple looks like?
This is a 30 minute video made by a guy who is in love with home automation. He says his house was built in the 1870's and he's got tons of homekit devices that he controls from his Apple gadgets. He starts the video by giving a software tour of some of the apps he uses to regulate all the different home automation devices he has and shows that they're broken down by room profiles within the apps. He adds that you don't have to use the manufacturer's app, you can also take advantage of the HomeKit app that comes built in with iOS10.
Triggers can be set up within the apps so that they activate certain settings when particular conditions are met. For example, if you want your ...
