LG's G Watch may only have been on the market since July, but the company is already readying a new LG G Watch 2 for IFA 2014 next month, sources suggest. The new model is said to use an OLED touchscreen rather than the LCD of the first-gen smartwatch, addressing criticisms that the display was less vivid than that of its Samsung Gear Live rival.
The iPhone 6 is a hotly anticipated device, and for more reasons than just the uptick in screen size. A slew of new features are said to be making their way to the next iPhone, even NFC.

There's an old joke that USB cables have in fact three orientations, because no matter which way you turn them they never plug in properly the first two times, but Apple looks to be addressing that with its latest Lightning cables. After patent filings for a two-way reversible USB connector surfaced last week, now the cable itself appears to have leaked.
If you still think that BlackBerry's next high profile smartphone is some elaborate marketing stunt, better wake up, smell the coffee, and watch this video. Courtesy of Carphone Warehouse, we're getting a second-hand look at how the BlackBerry Passport would look and feel like in the real world. Aside from looking huge and awkward, it seems that the Passport is quite equipped to accomplish what BlackBerry is setting it out to do, to be a no-nonsense business-minded mobile device.
Another day, another smart home system, with Peq believed to be Best Buy's attempt to jump on the home automation bandwagon. Peq - pronounced "peek" - follows in the footsteps of similar systems like SmartThings, Revolv, and Staples Connect, with a central hub that wirelessly connects to various cameras, door and window sensors, thermostats, and more.
