While the iPhone 6 is probably a long ways away, the same might not be true for an iPhone 5 update, known as the iPhone 5S. According to Jeffries analyst Peter Misek, the phone is coming in June and will offer hardware updates including NFC and an improved camera.
The kicker here is that I don’t have to pay a dime; FreedomPop gives out 4G wireless Internet for free, including providing you with a mobile hotspot. To give them a try, I ordered the FreedomPop Photon 4G mobile hotspot and here are my impressions.

Ever seen the TV show, Wipeout? For those who haven’t this show is all about making your way through obstacles, trying to beat time records and the like. I will admit that I don’t regularly watch the show, but I’ve caught a few episodes before and it’s actually pretty interesting to watch.

Bummed out by the idea that you’ll have to wait all the way until October to get your hands on the next iPhone?

A new report is now indicating that not only is the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display in the works, but that it will be launching in the next few months. More specifically, they’re looking at a September to October window.

Now, you can load it up on your preferred iDevice and kick it old school like the cool kids. Not surprisingly, you’ll need to jailbreak your iPhone to get this theme through Cydia.
I know what you’re thinking. This is going after much the same market as the Parrot AR Drone and that’s probably true, except these aren’t quadrocopters; they just have the two stacked rotors.

Android has its positive features (more open, more freeware oriented) and negative (malware and security issues), while iOS has its positives (better games, better security) and negatives (not as open, not as much freeware).

Microsoft never had any real place in the tablet PC market. The project Microsoft Courier project was their greatest hope, and even that was canceled for some strange reason. From the very beginning it was not clear if the Courier was ever going to reach a real life product, because it is one of many Microsoft’s working prototypes that never end up going anywhere. But everyone’s response to the Courier should have drove them to making that thing a reality.

The Fling mini by Ten One Design is designed to provide you with tactile control for those touchscreen games. You get a dual thumbstick-like configuration with actual thumbstick-like controls, rather than swiping your finger around virtual circles on the screen. The trouble is, as you can quite clearly see, it obscures about half of the screen.
