With the build up to the official debut of the new iPhone 6 growing stronger and more intense everyday, it’s no surprise that Apple fans, designers and tech sites and journalists will come up with their own idea of the iPhone 6.

Imaginations have run wild over the past few months, with dozens of people submitting their interpretation (or rather, expectation) of the iPhone 6 to various websites.

A couple of weeks ago, we showed you designer Sam Beckett’s vision of an iPhone Air. While Beckett’s version of the ‘new’ iPhone went viral, many more followed suit and came up with their own ideas.

The latest mock-up to hit the interwebs, is this one by popular technology website, Macrumors.  (more…)

When the first screenshots of Twitter’s redesign started surfacing yesterday, we got a little bit of déja vu. We have definitely seen the same design somewhere else before.

The new look features a bigger profile picture and also has an entirely new ‘header’ image. This header image is much like (read: exactly like) Facebook’s cover photo on their user profiles.  (more…)

How long until an operating system ages beyond all hope? Well, according to Microsoft, it is 12 years. That is how long Windows XP has been around, and support for the grandpa of the Microsoft shed has officially been retired. That’s right, the age of XP is officially over, folks.

That means no more security updates and no more customer service calls. The only people who will still be getting support (and at great extra costs) are governments and large corporations. It will offer critical patches and support, but nothing more. (more…)

Most smartwatches are intrinsically linked to the smartphone you use it in conjunction with, and only work off a Bluetooth connection.

Samsung wants to bring you another option, however, with the Galaxy Solo. It will be very much like a Galaxy Gear, but will be able to carry a SIM-card and will be able to make and receive phone calls. (more…)

KIMDOTCOM

Mastermind of file sharing (and illicit activities) Kim Dotcom, has landed himself in hot water, yet again. 

The creator behind one of the world’s largest file sharing websites, MegaUpload, will now have to deal with yet another lawsuit claiming that Dotcom, in conjunction with his website, profited from massive copyright infringement of countless movies and television shows.

Big tech acquisitions seem to be dime a dozen these days, and Apple has made another interesting one. Apple acquired an automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology company called Novauris Technologies. The company has historical ties to the core technology and patents behind Siri. (more…)

Even though Google quickly sold Motorola after making the acquisition a couple of years ago, they have kept some very important parts of the business. One is of course all the patents the company brought with it, and the other is what Motorola called Project Ara – the ‘build-your-own-phone’ project set to come to market relatively soon.

It spawned from what was something called Phonebloks, and Google are now calling it Project Ara by Phonebloks. They aren’t leaving us completely in the dark, though. Check out their update of where the project is and will be going below: (more…)
