Windows 9?

Good news, Windows users. Microsoft is reportedly unveiling Windows 9 at the end of September.

According to The Verge, the company has scheduled a press event for September 30th in which they will debut a preview version of the new OS. The Verge claim that ‘sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans’ informed them of the planned event.

The event will most likely detail all the changes made to the new version of Windows – which for now, is going under the codename ‘Threshold’.

The preview version of the Windows 8 successor will only be available for developers at first. No word yet on when we can expect the public beta version of Threshold or whether or not it will debut at the same time as the devs preview.  (more…)

Reversible USB port

We all know that USB plugs can be annoying. There is only one ‘right side up’ and more often than not, we get frustrated by first having to figure our which side up is the right side, before you can plug your device into a USB port.

Apple is reportedly looking to eradicate this frustration, by making their Lightning cable for the iPhone 6 reversible.

This means that the cable will be able to plug into any USB port form any orientation – thus eliminating the struggle of having to figure out which side is ‘up’.  (more…)

TMZ iphone 6

It seems that everyday there is a new iPhone 6 rumour or supposed leaked image. That is because there is. And now, even celebrity gossip website, TMZ, has jumped on the iPhone 6 rumour train.

Yes, the hype around the upcoming iPhone 6 is so big that TMZ – famed for exposing celebrities’ dirty secrets – has released images of a alleged ‘smuggled’ iPhone 6.

The website reports that the phone was “smuggled out of a Foxconn factory in China” and photographed by a friend of an ex-Foxconn employee. While most people know that iPhones are manufactured at Foxconn in China, this unfortunately doesn’t mean this photo is legitimate.

The phone in the photos looks quite similar to other leaks we have seen over the last couple of weeks. The phone has a bigger body, bigger screen and more rounded edges.  (more…)

At the end of last year we were extremely happy to see Motorola announce the Moto G, which was an affordable smartphone for the masses.

There were, as you can imagine, a couple of significant trade-offs to factor in. It has a 4.5-inch screen coming in at 720p, Android 4.3, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of storage and a 5-megapixel camera. The upside is that at launch the price was only $179. (more…)

More leaked photos of iPhone 6 shows alleged phone in its packaging

iPhone 6?

With the iPhone 6 allegedly being released on September 9 at Apple’s reported “big media event”, speculation and rumours have definitely gone up a gear as the anticipation just becomes too much for some to bear.

And while rumours are just that – hearsay – it’s the hard evidence (read: photos) that really grabs our attention. This is why we thought this latest bout of ‘leaked’ iPhone 6 images are something to write home about. It also features the alleged phone in a way we haven’t seen before; in it’s retail packaging.

Posted by Tech Radar yesterday, the images show the alleged iPhone 6 in it’s Apple retail box. The box, which looks exactly like iPhone boxes from years past, distinctly says ‘iPhone 6’ on the side.

According to Tech Radar, their source attributes the photos to an Apple beta tester, but has given no more information than that. (more…)
