iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are record breakers
Apple CEO Tim Cook commented on the balance between supply and demand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus stating that the demand is far outstripping supply despite a satisfactory production ramp-up. Cook noted that available data makes it unclear as to when supply will catch up with demand, and that the company was "not close" to having a balance between supply and demand at the end of Q4 2014.
Supplies have been tight for the iPhone 6 and even though they've had such incredible sales, many users are still holding onto their perfectly functional iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S's. In fact the Wall-street Journal commented that Apple had shifted their resources to ramp up further production of the dual-launching 6th generation of iPhones.

Apple is moving in for the kill
Samsung's third quarter 2014 earnings are likely to discourage investors as Samsung faces intense competition from both high-end and low-end competitors at the same time. According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung is expected to announce a quarterly operating profit drop of up to 62 percent in what may be its fourth consecutive quarterly decline.
What is the future of Samsung in terms of phones?
Though it may see a marginal increase in smartphone shipments, Samsung's operating profit decline may be the result of lower handset selling prices and increased marketing costs as smartphone competition escalates.
Apple is maintaining their strong position in the arena of high end smart phones while Chinese competitors are in full swing entering in the low end market (with much success). The combined attacks on Samsung's space can only mean one thing, that ...
Everything you need to know about Apple PAY
Apple Pay is Apple's new mobile payments service, which it first debuted in September alongside the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus, and the Apple Watch. Apple Pay is expected to become widely available to consumers beginning in October, and ahead of its official release, we've gathered everything that's currently known about the service into a roundup so users can get an idea of what to expect.
With Apple Pay, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will be able to make payments for goods and services with their iPhones, both in stores and within participating apps, using the NFC chip built into the devices. While Apple Pay will initially be restricted to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners, iPhone 5, 5c, and 5s users will also be able to take advantage of the ...
Many are still crying about the iPhone 6+ Bendgate issue
However the problem is actually not as bad as the media has made it out to be. Though it is true that the phone bends, it takes a significant amount of pressure and intensity to do so. Please see the power of science demonstrating this fact below:
Consumer Reports' tests pushed the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus much further than [Apple's test of 55 pounds of force]. We started light, applying 10 pounds of force for 30 seconds, then releasing the force. Then we upped the force in 10-pound increments, noted when the phones first started to deform (that's what our engineers call it) and stopped the test for each phone when we saw the screen come loose from the case.
So there you have it. Bendgate case is closed. HTC

iPad Air may use revolutionary new screen
Apple wants to push the envelope with their new iPad Air 2. Apart from offering a new fingerprint sensor built in like the 5S, the thickness will be reduced by as much as 30%! How can they build an iPad so thin you may be thinking? The trick may be in a new technique that involves laminating the actual LED screen instead of placing glass over it. If this is true, the next iPad Air could be a breathtaking piece of engineering.

iPhone 6 Battery is going to be way stronger than we thought
So if you've been following our blog, than you know we like to keep an eye on any developments with iPhones or Samsung phones because they're the most important tools we have in our daily lives. With that said they also have a very short battery life which is something that continues to escape manufacturers. The more battery life there is, the more powerful the parts get and the faster the battery drains. It's an infinitely negative cycle of cat & mouse and it probably will stay that way til the end of time. Or so we thought...
This image below confirms that the iPhone 6 5.5" version will feature 2915mAh as opposed to 2050 as we initially were told. That's almost a 50% leap in battery capacity for ...
Reversible USB Cables?
I honestly never thought I'd see the day. Apple is going to be making 2-way reversible USB cables standard for all their future products. Hello? Why haven't we started doing this years ago or since day one? Could it really be such a huge feat of engineering or cost efficiency that it couldn't be done til now? In any case, we're finally excited to see the results of this concept. Just imagine how many seconds of your life you will now get back because you don't have to fool around with the USB port. Here's a picture below featuring the upcoming 2 way reversible cable:
Apple gains remain consistently stronger than competition
How do they do it? In my business I hear every day about the next phone that's going to be the iPhone killer. Lucky for Apple, each of it's rival Android phones fall short in the customer base and don't perform well with high end users. Though many arguments have been made that Android offers more power and features to the user, the applications that allow this to happen are non-standard and are more susceptible than their Apple counter parts to freezing or generating run-time failures. Based on this assertion, it's my belief that many customers consequentially take their business to Apple. The iPhone offers well thought out Applications that have a strong reputation for staying consistent and not crashing. It's believe conventionally that this is one of the main reasons that Apple ...
Apple is discussing options to roll-out their Health App to medical professionals
Much of the buzz about iOS8 is about the new Health App which will revolutionize the smartiPhone industry again and create a new economy within it for healthcare treatments, supplements, and food. The Health App by Apple is meant to encourage healthy behaviors on the part of the end user and promote well being. In doing so, one way Apple is likely to generate income off of this is by recommending products and services local to the user. For example, your Health App might feature a checklist to start off your new healthy lifestyle adventures. On that checklist, one on might find that he or she must join a Gym, and Apple would offer a directory listing of gyms near that user. Historically this kind of advertising also ...
iPhone 6 Packaging
This looks like the version that's going to hit the store shelves in the United States and UK in about 2 months. This is presumably going to be the box that the iPhone ships in. Featuring iOS8 and an epic 13 megapixel back camera, this machine is going to be a jaw-dropper. There's also going to be a number of exciting developments with iCloud sharing which we promise to keep you posted on but much of what's out there is smoke and mirrors right now.
Though we can't confirm it yet, we can presume it will include a lightning charger and wall block plus a set of newly designed headphones. An interesting note concerning Apple's new BEATS family line up is that BEATS headphones are not planned to become standard Apple accessories any time in the near future. ...
