What is Drake doing in this video?
Drake's latest project "More Life" has been streamed more than 300 million times worldwide in its first week of release and set a record with 89.9 million streams within it's first 24 hours on Apple's new streaming service. According to the Verge, the album will fetch over 600 million streams worldwide which would also be a record for any single album. To put things into perspective, Ed Sheerhan's Divide picked up near 50 million streams in comparison and was considered to be the record buster album up to that time. Where Drake used to release his music through SoundCloud where he dominated the platform, he's now the single most popular artist on the new Beats 1 / Apple Music. His latest album is a crowning success on nearly a full decade through which Drake ...
Just how loyal are Apple Fans? The number is 92%
Morgan Stanley investment banking has recently done a survey to see how likely iPhone owners are to upgrade from their existing iPhone to the new iPhone 8. They found that the number of existing users which are "somewhat likely" or "extremely likely" to upgrade to the iPhone 8 when it comes out is 92%. We've all seen the lines of people waiting for Apple product releases and the iPhone 8 is expected to be no different. Even with all efforts from other major smartphone competitors and new Chinese competitors chomping at the bit to outperform the iPhone, most iPhone users swill stay with the iPhone 8.
An excerpt from Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty's research note distributed today:
It's our belief that a maturing installed base that is accustomed to iOS and ...
Will the new FBI Director make your iPhone Hackable?
In light of the recent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Apple enthusiasts around the world are very concerned that the next FBI Director will be seeking a "backdoor key" for getting into hundreds of millions of iPhones. Before James Comey was in the news recently over his firing by President Donald Trump, he was most well-recognized for testifying on behalf of the FBI in trying to get Apple to write a back door code to allow them to get into people's iPhones. Specifically they FBI wanted to get into the iPhone of the terrorist couple who shot up San Bernardino last year, but undoubtedly the tool would open "hundreds of millions of locks" as it was said by Apple CEO Tim Cook in an interview found below. If you recall ...
Apple to release 3 iPhone 8 models all at once in 2017
Coming in later this year, Apple will release 3 different models of their upcoming iPhone 8. There's going to be a lot of changes to the outward appearance of the phone. Firstly, notice in the picture above that there is no home button on the surface of the iPhone 8. That's because the iPhone 8 is going to be a full glass surface for it's body with finger print recognition technology embedded throughout. That's going to make cracked screen repairs a lot fast presumably when they break. The glass screen will go edge to edge and will have a new and specially developed OLED screen made by the same company that manufactures screens for Samsung. Samsung Note series last year was touted to have the highest quality screen ...
OLED iPhone 8 with a curved display and touch-sensitive tech
It's almost the end of a really tough year 2016. Wouldn't it be funny if you got to New Years Eve and instead of starting 2017 we go into 2016 S? That's a little bit what it felt like when users got their hands on the new iPhone 7. We know that Apple was super busy working on all new technologies including dual-cameras, a new touch button & fingerprint scanner. The new iPhone 7 however left many users wanting and made many techies feel depraved of new technologies that are already appearing in Samsung and Google phones. So what can we expect from the next iPhone?
Looking at the direction Apple has taken with their most recent launches, we'll most likely see several iPhone models debut all at once. I think ...
The new iPhone 7 is here – what can you expect to get if you take the plunge? The 7 includes an improved camera, increased water resistance and changes to the way you listen to music and media on your phone.
The newest version of the iPhone has a striking resemblance to the 6 but there are some upgrades waiting for new users. The iPhone 7 is designed to have increased water resistance, which may not seem like a big deal at the point of purchase, but which anyone caught in a rainstorm will appreciate.
The home button is different and has been incorporated into a touch panel, which may take some getting used to for existing iPhone users used to a separate and distinct button to push. The screen and touch technology are the same as the iPhone 6; ...

The biggest change is going to be the revamping of Siri so far as we can tell for the new macOS Sierra. Sierra will now function without interrupting your work (unlike the iPhone which pauses whatever you're doing when you try to take advantage of Siri). You'll also be able to use Siri to search your indexed files like images, videos, and more without actually having to go to the web. You'll also be able to schedule appointments using Siri and there are many more changes due after the release of this new operating system.
Will iMessage finally be coming to Android?
The short answer is no. Based on an article found online at macrumors, an Apple senior executive gave two answers. 1, Apple has to consider its own user base of 1 billion active users to provide a large ...
Samsung Announces Wireless earbuds
Summer is here and that means people all over the United States are going to be moving around and taking their phones everywhere with them. Just in time for summer, Samsung has announced their new wireless earbuds and the tech community's jaws have dropped. These new earbuds are a shocker for a number of reasons but mainly because this was going to be one of the big companion products for the highly anticipated iPhone 7. In other words, it looks like Samsung is trying to steal the thunder before Apple's new iPhone 7 release and this will be a guaranteed way to do it. It means that if these earbuds are actually good, they could tip more of the market share away from Apple and bring money into the pockets of Samsung. The battery life on these little ...
