iPhone 6

Another day, another Apple rumour. As we inch closer and closer to the fall (or, Spring for us Southern Hemisphere beings) when new Apple products usually make their debut, rumours are starting to spread about the company’s proposed new devices.

This latest rumour comes from Digitimes, who are citing ‘industry sources’. These ‘industry sources’ are claiming that Apple is planning on releasing three iPhone devices this fall.

Expected to launch in the second half of 2015, if the rumours turn out to be true, Apple will release three new flagship iPhone models; the iPhone 6S, the iPhone 6S Plus and, much to our surprise, a new iPhone 6C model.  (more…)

While a possible announcement date draws nearer for LG’s (supposed) 2015 flagship, the G4, rumours circulating the internet pinpoint that LG’s forthcoming premium smartphone won’t feature a metal chassis, much to the chagrin of users who’ve felt that the current G3 is let down by a faux metal (plastic) finish.

Rather, sources pinpoint that a higher-end – or at least, larger – G4 “Note” smartphone or phablet will feature an premium metal body.

While Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, has pegged the company’s set-top box – Apple TV – as a hobbyist product many times, rumours pinpoint that the Cupertino company is developing a TV subscription service for release at year end.

The rumour also follows another speculation – that Apple will unveil a brand new Apple TV box at some point in April.

Latest LG G4 image shows a curve

Published by on Mar 10th, 2015, No Comments

While LG’s next flagship is rumoured to not to see its debut until April or May of this year, Twitter account @OnLeaks posted an alleged picture of the device online this morning – and, by all appearances, it seems the G4 is set to have a curve.

Much like the company’s fraternal handset, the newly introduced G Flex 2, it seems the G4 might accomodate a similar – if less extreme – length and widthwise curvature.

Report: Apple plans reversible USB cable for iPhone 6

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…)

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…)

You can now pre-order a 24-karat gold iPhone 6

Brikk iPhone 6

No date has even been set for the iPhone 6 launch and Apple hasn’t said a word, but, you can now pre-order a solid gold iPhone 6 – if you have the cash to burn.

Los Angeles-based luxury retailer, Brikk, has announced on their website that they are now taking pre-orders for either gold or platinum plated iPhone 6 models.

Those who seek more than functionality when it comes to their smartphone, can order a 24-karat yellow or pink gold iPhone 6 or, if you don’t want to be as flashy but still ensure top luxury, you can also order a pure platinum iPhone.

Then there is the ultimate in luxury plated iPhones – and one we’re sure Paris Hilton will like to get her hands on – the diamond encrusted, 24-karat gold iPhone 6.

Along with the solid gold plating, you can also request Brikk to have the Apple logo of your iPhone encrusted in 1.068 carats worth of sparkly diamonds. This gold plated, diamond encrusted iPhone 6 will set you back a mere $8,400 (or R89,139,12 – but who’s counting?) (more…)

Is there a Facebook, Uber partnership looming?

Published by on Jul 25th, 2014, No Comments

Uber

If recent reports are to be believed then we might see a new, powerful partnership between Facebook and Uber in the near future.

According to a report by Re/code, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg,  reportedly had a meeting with Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick about a possible partnership between the two mega companies that would reap a lot of benefits for both.

Apparently, the two discussed the possibility of integration the Uber service into Facebook’s Messenger app. This would then essentially mean that you would be able to order an Uber while you are talking to your friends on Messenger.

We already know that Facebook is very interested in turning their messenger app into something more than just (another) messaging/communication tool. And it seems that they are looking into e-commerce to expand the horizons of Messenger. (more…)
