iPhone 7 may look more like iPhone 4 than 6

iPhone 7 may look more like iPhone 4 than 6

Today we're having a peek at the possibility that the iPhone 7 could return to its slightly more retro "4" roots in look and feel. A refined look that worries more about fashionability than it does about falling to the ground, breaking into a million pieces. We're talking about glass on the back of this next iPhone, not just sides that are (once again) flat.

Is there a market or even a need for Android PCs?

Is there a market or even a need for Android PCs?

As of this writing, the Remix Mini Kickstarter stands at almost $600,000. That's more than 10 times their $50,000 goal. And that's barely a week since it launched, with 38 days left before the campaign ends. With a little over 9,000 backers, the Kickstarter success seems to be sending a message. Forget Android TV or Android Auto or maybe even Android Wear. An Android PC is the next best thing. Or is it? How has personal computing changed over the past years since Android came on the scene and is an Android PC really a logical evolution of the platform?

iPad sales drop below Mac – is the tablet dying?

iPad sales drop below Mac – is the tablet dying?

This afternoon Apple's earnings call for their fiscal Q3 2015 suggested that sales of the iPad continue to fall. What's odd about this particular reveal is the fact that revenue is beginning to be quite obviously lower than the Mac. Where this past quarter was the first quarter in several years that iPad revenue was lower than the Mac, it was by less than a couple hundred million dollars. Now the difference is by nearly $1.5 billion. Meanwhile UNITS of the iPad continue to outsell the Mac, for what its worth.

This futuristic exoskeleton convinced me to take aging seriously

This futuristic exoskeleton convinced me to take aging seriously

One day you will die, but, before then - and assuming all goes to plan - you’ll be trapped in an old body. Failing eyesight, hearing plagued with tinnitus, and limbs progressively seizing until just getting up from your chair is a challenge too great: death may be considered the biggest taboo, but aging is arguably a more uncomfortable one. With all that to look forward to, it’s no surprise that nobody wants to talk about getting old. Could a futuristic exoskeleton kick-start that conversation?

Windows 10 auto updates are a necessary evil
