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 now perform in-store repair for iPhones
This article first broke online at the source below. Check out this article:
Starting Monday, iPhone 5s owners will be able to take their handsets into Apple retail stores in the U.S. or Canada to have broken screens replaced, according to9to5Mac. A broken iPhone 5s screen will cost about $150 to replace; usually in the event of a broken screen, Apple would charge $269 to replace the device.
A source that also told Apple Insider that the iPhone 5s was being added to Apple’s replacement program detailed that handsets have to be free of water damage and other hardware issues to qualify for repair. Additionally, customers with AppleCare+ would be able to mail in iPhone 5s handsets to be fixed, which would cost $79.
Apple’s in-store repair program began last year with iPhone 5 screen replacements. Later, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c owners ...
iPhone 6 is just around the corner
Every year around this time Apple usually gathers us all together and tries to push the latest and greatest improvements in handheld and computer technology on us... and it works. What does suck about this process though is the fact that the technology keeps getting more and more expensive and it often times requires more commitment and money. If you pay $300 for an iPhone 4, by the time the iPhone 5 comes out, your investment is worth less than half of what you originally bought it for in many cases .So how can you keep down the cost of "keeping up with the jones's" and upgrade smoothly with the turn of every iPhone.
1. Sell your phone to local computer and cell phone stores before the release of the next phone you're looking ...
