Galaxy S8 screen tipped to grow to lure Note 7 users

A new rumor is making the rounds that claims Samsung is set to enlarge the screen of the Galaxy S8 smartphone in an effort to lure the customers who are considering going somewhere else for a big screen phablet back to the Samsung fold after the Galaxy Note 7 failure. This would dovetail nicely with the rumors from earlier this month that the Galaxy S8 would get a body that was 90% covered by the screen. This new rumor started with a report from a South Korean news outlet called The Bell.

Vine may live on as Twitter supposedly looks for a buyer

At the end of October, Twitter made the rather surprising decision to pull the plug on Vine by announcing plans to discontinue its mobile app. While we still don't have a day the mobile app is scheduled to go offline, new reports suggest that may not actually happen. That is to say: Vine might be granted a reprieve assuming Twitter can find someone interested in purchasing it.

iPhone 8’s “one more thing” may be a 3rd phone

Apple is said to be planning something big for the release of iPhone 8, and one possibility is the addition of a third phone to the lineup. For a few years now, Apple has released two new iPhones each year (ignoring the one-off release of the iPhone SE), but that could change next year. In addition to the 4.7 and 5.5-inch models we've had since the iPhone 6, Apple may be looking to release a 5-inch iPhone 8.

Apple event to focus on new MacBooks, not iMac, says analyst

In case you haven't heard, Apple has one of its secretive media events scheduled for October 27th, using the phrase "Hello Again" as the teaser. For months now it's been expected that Apple would hold such a fall event to introduce new, non-iOS related hardware, possibly including anything from the Mac lineup, from the MacBook Air to a new Mac Pro. Well, Ming-Chi Kuo, the KGI Securities analyst with one of best track records when it comes to Apple predictions, has chimed in to say that we should keep our expectations set for new laptops only.

LG G6 said to be dropping the G5’s modular design [UPDATE: Statement]

Earlier this year, LG released its G5 smartphone, the best execution we've seen thus far of the modular phone concept. Unfortunately for the manufacturer, the device just didn't sell well, failing to lure buyers with its range of add-on modules like physical camera controls, improved speakers, and a 360-degree camera. A new report out of Korea says that, because of this flop, the G6 will return to a standard, integrated smartphone design, in turn dropping support for modules.

Hated MacBook? The new MacBook Pro will make you howl

Apple's MacBook Pro is long overdue a refresh, but the hotly-anticipated update could bring pain to those unready to embrace new connectors. It's been well over a year since Apple last revamped its high-end notebook, with the MacBook Pro released in May 2015 still holding out today with its Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 ports. Now, though a considerably changed new line-up is expected within a matter of weeks, not everybody is likely to be happy.
