Automatic steps up their car game with an app gallery

This port is where the Automatic device plugs in. Through this device, users are able to connect (with their smartphone) to read-outs of all sorts - gas, engine problems, maintenance needs, and more. This week the Automatic team have revealed an app collection that allows you to make the most of your data.

Today’s Apple vs Samsung court news means nothing to you

Today’s Apple vs Samsung court news means nothing to you

Average consumers remain unaffected by today's United States Court of Appeals decision in a long-lasting Apple vs Samsung case. This case has been on the books for many moons.

Not very much at all, really, unless you happen to be an investor or a lawyer working for Samsung or Apple, or any company caught in the cross-fire.

Apple patent app hints at future iPhone Force Touch display

Apple has a new patent application that hints at the OS X Quick Look feature coming to iOS via a new so-called “Intense” touch gesture that’ll be facilitated with new display intensity sensors -- basically meaning Force Touch being integrated into the iPhone's own display.

Passcode not required to reset a stolen Apple Watch

Passcode not required to reset a stolen Apple Watch

When the Activation Lock security feature was first introduced to the iPhone with iOS 7, it was praised as a strong way to dissuade would-be smartphone thieves.

Your iPhone 6s may be Rose Gold, cost $10k

Analysts predict that the next iPhone will include a Rose Gold option as well as a higher-priced luxury option similar to Apple Watch Edition. This week's suggestion includes a version of the Apple iPhone 6s - following Apple's traditional every-other-year change from a full edition change to an "s" version. This iPhone 6s would include Rose Gold - though we're not entirely sure at this time whether or not this gold would be an actual gold mix, like the Apple Watch Edition, or if it'll be similar to the Gold option on the iPhone 6 now, without any actual super-expensive gold inside.
