No, U2, your Apple album release wasn’t “punk rock”

In an interview set to be published in full in Time Magazine on the 29th of this month, Bono and U2 have spoken up on the "punk rock" nature of their deal with Apple.

An Apple Pre-Order Dilemma

An Apple Pre-Order Dilemma

When Apple announced its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this week, I knew immediately that I would want to get my hands on the larger version.

Is Moto G better than Moto X (2014)?

Is Moto G better than Moto X (2014)?

Last year we had a bit of a chat surrounding our reviews of Moto X and Moto G, and several readers suggested something outrageous. They suggested that the Moto G (2013) might be a better value than the Moto X (2013). This year, the differences between the two devices are more radical than they were last year. Could Motorola have made a mistake, creating too large a value gap between their two hero phones?
