Apple and Cisco team up to make iOS enterprise fit

Siri-led Apple TV said bigger and more expensive

Siri-led Apple TV said bigger and more expensive

Apple's new Apple TV set-top box will add to, rather than replace, the existing model new rumors suggest, with the 4th-gen establishing a range ahead of cord-cutter plans. The new box is widely expected to be revealed at Apple's September 9 event in San Francisco, alongside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but new leaks indicate its much-discussed Siri control and other features will come at a cost.

New PayAnwhere turns any iOs device into Apple Pay, credit card PoS

One of the biggest hurdles to the adoption of a theoretically more convenient wireless payment system is the lack of compatible terminals to support it. Migrating to the new payment system, or even just adding wireless payment in addition to conventional magnetic strip terminals is now small task. To help push that industry forward, and especially the new Apple Pay, North American Bancard had announced a new PayAnywhere accessory that turns any iOS device into a terminal that supports Apple Pay and other payment methods, both wireless and physical.

Ex-Apple CEO John Sculley outs pretty and cheap Obi Worldphones

Ex-Apple CEO John Sculley outs pretty and cheap Obi Worldphones

Just to be clear, it's Obi Worldphones, not Obi Wan. Terrible pop culture references aside, this news isn't something you see everyday. John Sculley, who, at one point in time, lead one of the world's biggest tech companies, has co-founded and announced two new smartphones. While some already point out their rather alluring design, these Obi Worldphones are two things that no iPhone will ever be: Android and affordable. Just because you were the former CEO of Apple doesn't mean you have to forever drink their Kool-aid, right?

German high court invalidates Apple slide-to-unlock patent

German high court invalidates Apple slide-to-unlock patent

At the beginning of its patent lawsuits against the likes Samsung, with Android as collateral damage, Apple seemed to have the force of the law behind it. The publicity might have backfired, putting its patents under greater scrutiny, which has led some of them to be narrowed down or even thrown out outright. That latter might just be the case in Germany, where the country's highest (or next highest) court, the Federal Court of Justice, upheld that Apple's slide to unlock patent isn't patentable, at least not in Germany.

"Anything you can do, I can do better." That seems to be, or has always been, Samsung's theme in its rivalry with Apple. It was the first to out a 12.2-inch tablet, larger than any Android tablet or iPad ever conceived. Now that Apple is rumored to also have a large iPad Pro coming soon, Samsung is raising the stakes by increasing the size. How big, you ask? Well, 18.4 inches, according secret sources. Big enough to be called a table rather than a tablet.
