iPhone 7’s big change isn’t what you’re expecting

For the iPhone 7 this morning several revelations were made by a couple of well-known news sources. Traditional news sources, that is to say: CNBC and the Wall Street Journal. According to CNBC, the big change is that there won't really be all that much of a change at all for the iPhone 7. The big change is that Apple will break with tradition, not giving this year's "tick" in their normal "tick tock" scheme a major overhaul.

iOS 10 official as Siri opens to developers

Apple introduced iOS 10 for iPhone and iPad this week at WWDC 2016, suggesting 10 new big features would come with it - at least 10, that is. The first of these was, obviously, user experience.

Samsung’s Rollable Screen demo is not just a dream for Android

This week at the SID Display Week 2016 trade show we've gotten up close and personal with Samsung's new rollable screen, just one of several next-gen inventions in display technology. But this is just another in a long line of demos of such "transforming" or "curved display" tech from Samsung, LG, and the rest, right? Not so fast. Now that Samsung has proven their ability to deliver the goods with devices like the Galaxy Edge, the company is expected by the public to deliver on concepts like these with more speed. The time is now!

Google IO’s most pointless surprise is also its best

Google IO’s most pointless surprise is also its best

This year's Google IO developers conference had both a brand new mostly-outdoor venue and a rather brightly-colored surprise. This surprise was a robot arm - one that was able to paint a cube in front of our very eyes. What's awesome about this robot arm - beyond the fact that it's a robot with a paint brush - is that it's not entirely pre-programmed. Paint colors and actions are selected by users like yourself with a smartphone app dedicated to said actions.

How we hunted Angry Birds in Hawaii: A SlashGear 360 Adventure

How we hunted Angry Birds in Hawaii: A SlashGear 360 Adventure

Several weeks ago I was invited by the folks behind the Angry Birds movie to fly to Hawaii to speak with the stars. Generally we try to steer towards science and science-fiction films when we do any sort of coverage for movies - we are SlashGear, after all - but this film is something special. Rovio - creators of the Angry Birds franchise - carved out a unique chapter in the history of the smartphone. Could they convince us that a movie needed to be made? Could Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph, and Josh Gad convince us?

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. This is the 4-inch iPhone called iPhone SE, and it works with the same graphics processing power as the iPhone 6s.
