Is Android really crushing iPhone, or is it hype?

Is Android really crushing iPhone, or is it hype?

Here at the start of 2013 we're seeing some rather conflicting messages coming from analytical sources across the web, this week's message appearing to be that Android is "crushing" iOS - could it be true? Hardly. The most recent report from Strategy Analytics has Apple selling 17.7 million iPhones in the USA alone, this part of Apple's official number 47.8 million iPhones sold across the planet. Compared the last year that's a 38% year-over-year increase in the USA and the single largest number of iPhones sold in any one quarter in Apple's history.

Right here at the start of the week we're seeing a new iteration of the iPad 4 (the first 9.7-inch iPad with a Lightning port) with a newly massive amount of internal storage. While the original largest amount of storage space you'd have been able to get in the iPad was 64GB, the newest version would be 128GB, more storage than you could possibly ever need in your Apple mobile device.

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

This week Apple's Tim Cook made no effort to hide his excitement over the success Apple has had over its first fiscal quarter of 2013, letting investors know that it's largely because of the products of 2012 that this good time for the company is driven into the future. Back when Cook promised us big things in 2012 early last year, we saw new iterations of essentially every product Apple had on the market, along with a couple new ones to boot. Cook's affirmation here at the beginning of 2013 could very well mean big things for the company through the next 12 months as far as production goes - just as long as the supply chain Apple relies on doesn't get in the way.

iOS 6 “Newsstand as app folder” trick discovered

iOS 6 “Newsstand as app folder” trick discovered

The Newsstand app, which was introduced in iOS 5, can be rather annoying if you don't take advantage of reading magazines and periodicals on your iOS device -- it just sits there taking up space on your home screen. If your device is jailbroken, you can hide the app with a simple tweak, but non-jailbroken users will have to deal with. However, a new tweak was recently discovered that allows non-jailbroken users to "hide" apps in the Newsstand folder.
