iPhone 7 Release Day reports clash

This morning Apple Stores around the world opened their doors to let in lines of potential iPhone 7 buyers galore. Or that's what would have happened if the internet somehow didn't exist and users hadn't already pre-ordered their devices over the past week. As it is, reports are coming in from the UK, NYC, and etcetera, as Apple Stores let in users that can't help but wait for the UPS or FedEx truck to arrive, picking their devices up in-person instead.

Muzik One headphones is as smart as it is wireless

Wireless Bluetooth headphones are now a dime a dozen, and expect the numbers to balloon further now that the iPhone 7 doesn't have a headphone jack. Naturally, the competition will be fiercer and manufacturers will need to compete on more than just name alone. Muzik believes that its new pair, the Muzik One, has such a winning formula. Calling it the "smartphone of headphones", the "hybrid" wireless and wired headphones not only connects to your smartphone but, via your smartphone, to your social networks as well as Spotify.

iPhone 7 Review Round-up: 7 Plus Cameras, Jacks, and Jet Black

One collection of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Reviews have been dropped this morning, and they appear - for the most part - to be positive. While it would appear that the tech review industry isn't entirely sold on the idea that they'll have to change habits to accommodate the lack of a headphone jack, and the Jet Black finish seems to be a bit more "scratchy" than they'd hoped, both devices seem to deliver on Apple's promise of a top-quality smartphone.

Buddy Pokemon are nearly here and we're already looking to the next big thing.

iPhone 7 release date options: colors and sizes and Android

The release date for Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is upon us. While this set of iPhones looks a lot like iPhones we've seen in the past several years, a set of new options makes this an interesting switchover point for many consumers. People that've been using an older iPhone from 2 or more year ago, especially will be looking to upgrade - but there's also the people that are less-than-satisfied with what's just happened in the Android universe. While we don't expect a large number of switches over to the other side this generation only because of Samsung's misfortune, we do expect there to be some fallout.
