The Apple and Beats deal finally became official in August and since then, speculations have been running high as tow hat the next step is for Apple and Dr. Dre’s Beats.

Besides their business of selling high-end headphones, Beats also run a music streaming service called Beats Music, in case you didn’t know. For quite some time now, rumours have been flying about Apple planning to integrate Beats Music into iTunes.

Apple 1

Everyone knows that Apple computers are expensive. Whether its a MacBook or an iMac or Mac Mini, you’re sure to be paying a pretty penny for one of these products.

But have you ever heard of someone paying close to $1 million for a Apple computer – and one that doesn’t even have Retina display? Probably not.

The computer in question is actually much older than you’d expect. In fact, it is a rare, Apple 1 computer that was built in 1976 by Steve Wozniak himself.

The computer is part of the first 50 computers ever developed by Apple, from the batch that was sold to electronics store, the Byte Shop. This computer was built by Wozniak in the – now famed – garage of Steve Jobs’ parents’ house in Palo Alto, California.

This Apple 1 was auctioned on Wednesday by famed auctioneers, Bonhams New York for a whopping $905 000.  (more…)

The Beat joins the mini market which already contains the likes of the Alcatel Onetouch Idol Alpha (see review), Motorola Moto G as well as the Sony Xperia Compact (and many others). But the Beat, with a 5-inch screen, can’t exactly be called a mini even though it is smaller than its big brother the G3. Earlier this year the G3 had everyone abuzz with its sleek style, Quad-HD screen and super thin bezels, will the G3 Beat follow in those illustrious footsteps? We got out hands on one to answer that question… (more…)
