IFA 2014 is around the corner as we are expecting it to be as exciting as ever. Sony has been quitter than other manufacturers before the trade show, where many have opted to announce devices before letting the media get their hands on it at IFA. Sony has gone a different route, but has now revealed a teaser of something new coming soon.

In the teaser seen above we only get two of the three measurements that make up the dimensions of a new device. So what could it be? What is more, normally it’s the thickness of a phone or tablet that’s the selling point, but here that 6.4mm measurement is clearly revealed. (more…)

Windows 9?

Finally, we have a (possible) date for the much anticipated iPhone 6 launch event – that is if these reports are to be believed.

According to various news sources, Apple has scheduled a “big media event” for September 9th and, by looking at all their previous September media events, this might be the day that we finally get introduced to the new iPhone 6.

The possible event was first reported by Re/code and quickly followed up with reports by Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal. Now, as we know, these sources are usually on the ball when it comes to rumours.

However, nothing is set in stone unless Apple officially confirms – which, as you may have guessed, they haven’t.  (more…)

It’s that time of the year again – where we can all get excited about a month long music festival streamed directly to our smartphones. It’s time for the 2014 iTunes Festival.

Today, Apple announced the first batch of artists set to perform at this year’s festival which is being held in London, instead of the US as previous years.

The festival will take place in Camden in north London at the world famous Roundhouse venue all throughout September, from the 1st to the 30th.

As Apple says, the festival promises to bring us 30-days of exceptional performances by some of the world’s best artists; the likes of which include Pharrell, Maroon 5, Kasabian, Sam Smith, David Guetta, Calvin Harris and even legendary, Debbie Harry fronted rock band, Blondie.

But don’t get too upset if you don’t see your favourite performer on that list, Apple will gradually announce more acts as we get closer to the date.  (more…)

Not much has been said lately about Samsung’s Exynos processors and for good reason. The Qualcomm variants of all their phones are much preferred the world over, even though the Exynos processors are “octa-core” (which it really isn’t, simply a marketing gimmick). (more…)
