Google IO schedule shows where Android and Google VR are headed

Chrome is here, too, of course, but we're jumping in on the Android bit with Google I/O 2016's scheduler this afternoon first. A selection of sessions have been revealed for the developer conference over the course of three days, the majority of which are consequential mostly for the developers themselves. However, we've already found a few tidbits you'll be interested in, including a cryptic message/description in the section called "Google's Vision for VR."

iPhone SE puts iPhone 6s heart in 4-inch phone

"We're here today to talk about a smaller iPhone," said Apple's Greg Joswiak. "As you may have heard, we're calling it the iPhone SE." According to Joswiak, the company sold 30-million 4-inch iPhones just this past year. That's no number to scoff at. They've decided to continue the 4-inch display legacy with another model.

Apple Watch price changed, Nylon Bands introduced

Apple Watch price changed, Nylon Bands introduced

Apple Watch is the best selling smartwatch in the world - so says Tim Cook. "But most importantly to us," said Cook, "customers love it." To this point, Cook has introduced a number of new bands for the Apple Watch - why? Because "about a third of our Apple Watch wearers regularly change the bands." The newest band in the Apple-made collection is the Woven Nylon band. Oh, and they've lowered the price of the Apple Watch, too.

Apple makes encryption stand: “we will not shrink” insists Cook

Today at the Apple Town Hall meeting, CEO Tim Cook took the stage after showing off a brief history of the company. They showed 40 years of the company in 40 seconds, which was little more than a quick flash of words such as "Lisa" "1984" "iMac" and more. After letting us know that Apple's 40th birthday was coming up on April 1st, he took a moment to talk about something far more important.

iPad Air 3 could be an iPad Pro for the common user

An Apple Event has been tipped to take place next month packed with a number of devices, one of which is the long-awaited iPad Air 3, this time tipped to come with some "Pro" features. This upgrade to the iPad Air 2, a device revealed in the year 2014, will very likely take on several key features of the iPad Pro. As the iPad Air continues to be the hero of the pack of iPad devices on the market today, it's only right that Apple give it the features that make it the prime example of what an iPad is capable of.

4-inch iPhone makes perfect sense for rumored Apple event in March

4-inch iPhone makes perfect sense for rumored Apple event in March

Apple's next event has been rumored to be taking place in Mid-march - there the company is likely to shake the industry up by splitting iPhone releases in two: one early in the year, two later on. With rumors of the iPhone 5se on the rise and Apple's most recent earnings call proving that iPhone sales won't be continuing to skyrocket through the future, it's prime time for the company to flip their script. Instead of centering all attention on an iPhone 7, (and its closest relative, an iPhone 7 Plus), the company will break from tradition, coming to terms with the way users around the world are watching releases.

Halloween comes early for Verizon’s DROID release event

Halloween comes early for Verizon’s DROID release event

A spooky sort of invite has been sent by Verizon for an event that's sure to reveal the newest DROID devices from Motorola. This event will take place starting at 11AM Eastern Time on the 27th of October, and the invite suggests one of two things. Either we're going to get a device that's especially good at helping us with the TRICK part of our Trick or Treat shenanigans, or we're just being teased with shards of glass because this device will be especially sharp. We're guessing it's a Moto X of a different name, and though not particularly rugged, a device that's not going to break when you drop it from your pocket.

Today we're running down all the products we saw the company deliver to the public, including the Surface Pro 4, the Surface Book, a new Microsoft Band, and a couple of smartphones. Microsoft suggests that they're taking on Apple directly with these products - at least the Surface models vs Apple's laptops. Do they put their manufacturing where their mouth is, or do we need to wait to see how well the lot fares?
