If you’ve been addicted to the mobile device-driven game known as Anki DRIVE, you may already know that its remote-controlled cars are designed by none other than Harald Belker. This fellow is responsible for designing all of the cars - including the two newest for this season of Anki DRIVE - as well as a massive number of Hollywood vehicles and concepts: everything from the TRON: Legacy light-cycle to the wild Batmobile from the movie Batman and Robin.
At the Hong Kong Electronics Fair 2014 (Spring) exhibition this week a number of cases for the iPhone 6 were shown by insatiable protective accessory handlers. Here we find a relatively mediocre source for information on the device as - quite likely - their sources are the same as ours. In other words: use these images as a basic guide, but don’t put too much faith into the lot.
Supposing you’ve already gotten an in-dash receiver this year - inside 2014, that is - and you bought it from Pioneer, you’re in for an Apple-flavored treat. The company has suggested that each of the five units they’ve released in the year 2014 will be upgraded to Apple CarPlay in early summer, 2014. This means soon, and very soon.
There’ve been a number of iPhone 6 photos surfacing this week, together creating the image of a device which is extremely similar to its predecessor. Instead of a 4-inch display, you’ll have a 4.7-inch display. Instead of a 4.87-inch-tall smartphone, you’ll have one closer to 5.25-inches tall.
Specifications for the Amazon Kindle Fire phone - or whatever they’ll end up calling it - have leaked. Photos of the phone have leaked as well, confirming suspicions had by several sources over the past few weeks, allowing us a peek at what may very well be a combination of elements able to give pause to iPhone users. Will you be one of them?
It’s suddenly become possible that with a larger display, the next iPhone - likely called iPhone 6 - could end up costing $100 more than previous models. It’s not clear at the moment if this price would be pushed into carrier subsidies or pulled directly out of the initial cost of the device on-contract.
This week the folks at Apple have added to the stacks of sites making clear that they were either unaffected by the Heartbleed bug or have been patched successfully. Apple has released a statement that suggests they "take security very seriously" and that iOS and OS X "never incorporated the vulnerable software" in the first place. They also made clear that "key web-based services were not affected" either.
