Google Drive is making it easy to ditch iPhones

The smartphone divide between the Apple iPhone and Google Android is one of the fiercest and most vicious in the tech industry. Lately, however, we’ve been seeing some exodus from either camp, dissatisfied with developments (or lack thereof) on either side. One thing that keeps people from completely jumping ship is the anxiety about their data, particularly contacts, appointments, and, more importantly, photos. Just as when it unveiled the Pixel phone, Google is making it even easier to jump from an iPhone to an Android. And all you need is a Google Drive account.

Samsung Pay Mini for iOS won’t launch following Apple rejection

We’ve been hearing for months that Samsung planned to launch a version of its mobile payment app for iOS, but now it seems those plans have been scrapped. According to a new report, Apple rejected Samsung's mobile app from its App Store, the reasons for which aren't clear, and the South Korean company doesn't plan on resubmitting the app. Samsung will instead double down in its focus on Android.

Pokemon GO Christmas event changes

Over the past week, Niantic has made some decisions about how to proceed with Pokemon GO Gen 2. All 2nd gen Pokemon GO pocket monsters will be available - sans Legendaries - within "the next few months." Due to the instant success in limiting the release of Gen 2 to Baby Pokemon in eggs, Niantic's plans for Christmas seem to have changed as well.

Pokemon GO Gen 2: getting Baby Togepi, Pichu ASAP

Pokemon GO has a set of new eggs to hatch with Gen 2's arrival, and it begins with just 2... or is it 7? As eggs have begun hatching after the update took place (server side), new Pokemon have started to appear. As luck - or a misplacement of assets - would have it, we've got the full (albeit brief) list of new Pokemon appearing in the game as of now. It's more than just Togepi - it's more than just Pichu.

iPhone 8 Release: What we already know about Apple’s 2017 flagship

iPhone 8 Release: What we already know about Apple’s 2017 flagship

In the Fall of 2017 Apple will reveal its iPhone 8, a device that's already begun its detail leak process months in advance. This device will be the 8th generation in the iPhone line, or the 10th iPhone if we include the iPhone Plus devices as additional models. This combined with the fact that 2017 is 10 years away from the year of the iPhone's inception, 2007, have lead some publishers to hypothesize on a magical "iPhone 10" release. We're attempting to err on the side of a more reasonable smartphone.

Uber, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story bring the Force to your ride

That’s no moon, that’s your Uber ride. OK, so you won’t exactly be riding the Death Star (can that thing even travel?), but you can hop on an X-Wing fighter en route to your work or whatever destination you have in mind. That is, with a little bit of imagination and this update to the Uber app. Joining the craze for the upcoming “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie, Uber is making available an optional feature that will make you feel one with the Force.

Pokemon GO Gen 2 : how to be first to the update download

The 100+ new Pokemon in Pokemon GO are coming, and playing the Pokemon GO song "I Play Pokemon GO" on repeat is not the best way to bring Gen 2 quicker. There are several ways in which a Pokemon GO user can make certain they're amongst the first to have access to the second generation of Pokemon - the list from Pokemon Black and Pokemon White.

Always-on woes: Super Mario Run requires a constant internet connection

Nintendo has confirmed that Super Mario Run will require an always-on internet connection to play. This means, of course, that you won't be able to play the game in places where you can't maintain a connection to Nintendo's servers. Always-on internet connections have been implemented in the past to combat things like piracy, and that's the exact reason why Nintendo is including it here.

Cortana for Android, iOS gets a facelift, heads to the UK

Cortana for Android, iOS gets a facelift, heads to the UK

Cortana might be the smart AI assistant immediately associated with Microsoft and Windows, but, unlike Siri or Google Assistant, she/it isn’t shy about embracing rival platforms as well. While it might not be as powerful on Android and iOS as it is on Windows 10, Cortana on mobile offers users a taste of what the Microsoft life is like. And now those in the UK will be getting their chance to take a taste as well, with Cortana for Android and iOS finally heading outside the US, a year after it launched exclusively there.

Super Mario Run hands-on: The holiday’s must-have iPhone game

Super Mario Run hands-on: The holiday’s must-have iPhone game

Could Super Mario Run be the Pokemon Go of the holiday season? Based on an early taste of Nintendo's first ever game for Apple devices, ahead of its full release in a week's time, I predict it'll be even bigger. Not only can it count on one of the most iconic characters in gaming history, its combination of super-easy controls and addictive gameplay have the potential to get gamers and non-gamers alike hooked.
