Apple’s next big thing is not an iPhone

Apple’s next big thing is not an iPhone

The next big thing from Apple won't be a piece of hardware - it won't be the fabled iPhone 8. The next big product to come from Apple will work on the next top-tier iPhone, but it wont work exclusively on that device. While it's the hardware we continue to focus on, and the hardware that's always easiest to discuss, it's something far more complicated (and yet exceedingly easy to work with) that'll change the way we see the world.

Pokemon GO Raid Maps and Moltres : How we’ve burned it down

Today is Moltres Raid Day for Pokemon GO trainers around the world - a day when users get down to business and battle this Fire Chicken monster. Today is halfway through the in-game life of the most fire-based of Legendary Pokemon Birds - or at least the most hotly contested.

Fitbit smartwatch release date range revealed as financial storm continues

This afternoon Fitbit shared their financial earnings in a message that also tapped their upcoming smartwatch as a friendly beacon of light. This device has been long awaited - if you're the sort of person who loves the Fitbit brand and needs a smartwatch, that is to say - and until now Fitbit's provided scarce details on their eventual release. With the gravel of the Pebble community onboard, it's apparently almost time to make another stab at a wrist-based smart device.

While the pricing might be the most key element, the first RED phone might be a game-changer.

Microsoft iPad Touch Cover could out-Ive Apple

Microsoft iPad Touch Cover could out-Ive Apple

Microsoft may have made an iPad accessory, and if they have - it's a very strange situation. Documents were dug up this week which include official mentions of Microsoft's Hololens, an Asha 210, Band 2, Lumia 1020, and a whole lot more. What's odd about this listing is the timing - all the way back in April of this year. If this device was ever meant to see the light of day, it probably would have done so by now, wouldn't you think?

iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8 aren’t playing the same game

iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8 aren’t playing the same game

Leaks of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 8 this week have basically solidified all the most basic rumors. The Galaxy Note 8 will have a dual-edged display with no front-facing home button. The iPhone 8 - or whatever Apple will end up calling it - will also do away with its standard front-facing home button, and will have a much larger screen-to-body ratio than any iPhone before. But what makes these two titans so different?
