PlayStation Now goes live for Samsung Smart TVs

Apple Notes update hints at new kind of iPhone

Apple Notes update hints at new kind of iPhone

Today Apple introduced an update to their iOS app Notes, an update which allows free-form note-writing. This sort of note-writing works with your finger, but lends itself to the use of a stylus. As Apple does not yet have an official stylus, it's been suggested - not by Apple directly - that a new type of iPhone might be coming in. With the iPhone 6 Plus already large enough to hold a stylus inside, why not? Can you imagine any reason why Apple wouldn't want to put a stylus in their iPhone?

Samsung’s next smartwatch will have NFC for Samsung Pay

Samsung’s next smartwatch will have NFC for Samsung Pay

According to sources, Samsung's next smartwatch, which may debut in September, will be equipped with an NFC chip. But it won't be for easy pairing with other NFC-bearing devices, at least not just for that. Instead, the NFC will be employed for making mobile payments through Samsung's yet to be launched Samsung Pay. This would put that still to be seen smartwatch closer and, once again, at odds with Apple and its Apple Watch, which uses the very same technology also for making mobile payments via Apple Pay.

Samsung patent details voice controlled auto-ejecting stylus

Samsung patent details voice controlled auto-ejecting stylus

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has just published a patent application from Samsung which specifies an "automatically ejectable input touch pen system" which can be controlled by voice commands or gestures. The new built-in stylus design is rumored to be for the Samsung Galaxy Note, but it could be incorporated into any mobile device with a stylus. This patent application was filed at the end of 2014, and the patent has not been officially granted yet, just published. Therefore, it's still undergoing the examination process.

Samsung ads take shots at Apple again, defies math

Samsung ads take shots at Apple again, defies math

When is 6 not equal to 6 and is actually greater than 6? When you're Samsung. Apparently, the Korean manufacturer has managed not only to bend its screens but also the laws of math. Its latest ads are unabashedly aimed at Apple again, which is somewhat refreshing, since we haven't seen a Samsung v Apple ad lately. Two videos, in particular pit the Galaxy S6 edge against the iPhone 6, ending with the conclusion that 6 is greater than 6, though Samsung might want to do some accounting of its own first.

Samsung accidentally leaks AT&T Galaxy S6 Active specs

Samsung accidentally leaks AT&T Galaxy S6 Active specs

Clerical error or cunning marketing ploy? Whatever your take on Samsung US' latest blooper, the fact remains that it "accidentally" published the support page for a certain SM-G890AZWAATT, a.k.a. the Galaxy S6 Active for AT&T. Although the manufacturer quickly took the page down, the Internet never really forgets. Which means that details of the rugged variant of Samsung's hit 2015 flagship is now available for everyone to see, though, truth be told, there isn't really anything yet to surprise us in this particular smartphone model.

Samsung Pay won’t be coming until September

Samsung Pay won’t be coming until September

There might be a small hiccup in Samsung's mobile payment plans. Originally intended to launch next month, company EVP Rhee In Jong revealed in an investor call that Samsung Pay will actually launch in September in the US and South Korea. This is to align the inauguration with the announcement of Samsung's next high-end model, the Galaxy Note 5. While that might make sense from a marketing standpoint, it does mean that Samsung will be very late in the mobile payments game against Google and Apple.
