Samsung Galaxy S3 versus Apple iPhone 5

There has never been a greater time to buy a smartphone I’d wager. From Nokia to Samsung to Apple and even (surprisingly) LG– there is lot to love. When it comes to iconic smartphone leaders though, we still often hear the names Samsung and Apple come up.

Apple Cuts iPad mini Shipping Dates to Just One Week

When the Apple iPad mini first hit the retail channels, it sold out pretty quickly and the shipping dates weren’t exactly ideal. However, it seems that Apple has finally gotten its ducks in a row and the supply chain is once again ready to roll, because the shipping dates for the iPad mini have been reduced to one week.

Tim Cook Briefly Hints at Future Apple TV Efforts

When Apple TV originally came out, it was made clear that this was a hobby device and not a major focus for Apple. In January of last year Apple reaffirmed the Apple TV was still a hobby area as well. Now, it seems things are finally changing.

Time Warner CEO wants Apple to release a television

Apple TV rumors have been floating around for years, and for good reason. The idea of an Apple TV is a tempting one, imagine a smart TV with Apple’s design aesthetic. Sure, not everyone loves Apple but there are plenty of Apple fans out there that would eat this thing up. Apparently, Time Warner’s CEO is one of these individuals.

Steve Wozniak Worries That Microsoft Might Be More Innovative Than Apple

Steve Wozniak is one of those guys that most of us just like, regardless of what platform we use or how we feel about Apple. Not only is he one of the founding fathers of the personal computer revolution, he tells things how it is and isn’t afraid to be honest, regardless of his affiliation with Apple. When speaking at TEDx Brussels, TechCrunch got a few moments afterwards with WoZ.

Samsung Nexus 10 versus Apple iPad: Which is right for you?

When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don’t have the display power of the Retina and probably aren’t as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.

Apple Defends the $329 Price Tag of the iPad Mini

The iPad Mini is here but some of us are finding it hard to get all that excited when similar tablets cost nearly $100 less. For $199 you can get the Nexus 7, sure it has a smaller screen but it also has a better resolution. You can even get a slightly weaker 7-inch Kindle Fire for just $169. That makes the starting price of $329 just a little hard to swallow.

Apple may exchange your brand new iPad 3 with new 4th-gen model

Just a little over a half year after the release of the iPad 3rd generation model, we already have a successor. The 4th gen iPad doesn’t bring tons of changes to the mix but it does have a faster processor and graphics chip, alongside the new Lightning adapter. So you already bought an iPad 3, what do you do? For some of you, an exchange might be possible.

Apple Announces the 4th Generation iPad

While everyone saw the iPad Mini coming from a million miles away, there was much less talk about the possibility of 4th generation iPad. While the 3rd generation model is just six months old, it also includes a dock connector that Apple is probably trying to get rid of for good.

New Apple Patent Allows Internal Components to “Disappear”

The idea of hiding certain software components on a mobile device isn’t exactly new. Many modern Android devices utilize buttons that are completely within the software. When they are needed, they show up. When they aren’t– they vanish temporarily. Apple apparently wants to take the concept further though, and has filed their own patent. In traditional Apple fashion, it takes an idea we’ve already seen and puts a twist on it.

Several Developers Claim Apple Knew About Map Issues Before Release?

The Apple Maps fiasco is starting to boil over now. The Maps are starting to improve quite a bit now, even if they are still rather far from catching up with Google Maps. It is easy enough to move on, I mean mistakes happen. This wasn’t intentional, Apple had no clue there were bugs, right? Actually— it seems that they did.

Apple Lightning Adapters Finally Shipping it Seems

There has been a remarkable amount of drama when it comes to the launch of the iPhone 5. The issues with iOS 6 maps, scuffs on the new phone and Wi-Fi problems are just a few of the issues that plagued the launch. On top of that, many iPhone 5 owners were a bit annoyed to hear that there would be delays with the lightning-to-30-pin adapter.

Apple already added the iPhone 5, new iPods and tons of accessories to its online store but something has started to happe- the dates for shipping have begun to slip.
