Blackberry Passport Preview

No, Blackberry isn’t dead yet, and it’s coming out with what might be one of their most audacious products to date: the Blackberry Passport — which looks a lot like Blackberry’s Porsche Design P’9981. However, the Passport has a few really interesting features that make it a better phone than the Blackberry phones of yesteryear. This phone is being launched at first in the US and Canada.   First and foremost, it has fairly up to date hardware, sporting a 4.5″ perfectly square display at 1440 x 1440 resolution. This is a fairly high resolution display for Blackberry and admittedly a very odd aspect ratio when compared

iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 Prices in Different Countries

iPhone 6 Camera

Ever wonder what people in other countries are paying for their shiny new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 pluses? Well, we’ve decided to look into the current Apple  listed prices for officially launched (or about to launch) countries in Europe, Asia and North America. Last time we looked at iPhone prices was with the iPhone 5S and by that point there were already dozens of countries launched. So, this time it was decided to start from the beginning and to continue to follow the market as it moves forward. There have already been reports of iPhones selling for over $1,500 in some markets, but the majority of those

Security Researcher Claims iOS Devices Have a Backdoor

Apple Logo iMessage iWatch Backdoor

A security researcher is claiming to have found a set of services in iOS that appear to be a firmware-level backdoor in iOS devices. What’s more interesting is that Apple has, in a very non-Apple manner, responded to his claims by posting a support page about it. He claims that these are confirmations of the backdoors that he found in iOS and that Apple claims to use them for diagnostic and enterprise purposes. These backdoors can only be accessed by Apple (or anyone that has access to Apple’s services) so they’re mostly secure backdoors, but they are backdoors nonetheless. Most consumers are completely and wholly

Fitbit Gets Fashionable with Tory Burch for Fitbit

Tory Burch Fit Bit

Anyone that uses most wearable tech knows that the first generation of most wearables is generally very functional but not very aesthetically pleasing. That could be easily exemplified with Google and their Google Glass which now has nice looking frames and no longer makes people resemble cyborgs. Google worked with DvF or Diane Von Furstenberg to improve the overall aesthetics of their wearable technology and it really does help a lot. So, it seems as no surprise that another ‘bland’ looking product like the Fitbit, which is still popular, would get the designer treatment as well. So, here is Tory Burch for Fitbit with a

IBM and Apple's Enterprise Partnership a Win for All

Apple IBM

Yesterday, Apple and IBM announced that they would be entering into a partnership where IBM would help Apple develop enterprise software for iOS devices and Apple would supply OS and hardware to enable those enterprise applications. This announcement marked the first partnership or relationship between the two companies since Apple stopped using IBM’s Power PC CPUs in their systems in 2006 with the last product announced in 2005. It’s been a long time since the two companies have worked together on anything and now that IBM is mostly a software company (They still have the Power Architecture and Power Chips for HPC) it makes sense

Twitter Now Supports GIFs, Facebook Still Struggling to Do So

Twitter Logo Large

While this may not be a big deal to some, avid and constant users of Twitter can rejoice today because the platform finally supports GIFs. Google’s own Google+ social network was actually the first of the big three to support GIFs and Facebook’s own Facebook chat that is built into the Facebook desktop client also supports GIFs. However, Facebook has not brought GIF support to any other platform or any other part of Facebook, including the most important part, the Timeline. You can test it out yourself by simply posting a tweet with a GIF that you’ve uploaded and anyone that wishes to see it

We don’t normally post iPhone rumors unless they’re incredibly well substantiated and this one appears to be pretty legitimate. While the source of the rumor may be one that seems a bit off-kilter, this person who we are referring to has actually proven themselves in the past to be able to get legitimate iPhone hardware ahead of the launch. There have been countless rumors and leaks and all of the Mac and Apple fan sites will flood you with basically anything they can in order to ensure you click on it. Most of what we’ve seen online as of late has all culminated in Apple launching

Blue Microphones Spark Digital: Start With A Studio Sound

Earlier this year, Blue Microphones updated their “Spark Digital” condenser microphone for compatibility with both PC/Mac and now Lightning-based iOS devices, giving budding artists a simple, entry-level tool they need for a studio sound at home, or on the go. USB condenser microphones and consumer mobile recording were all the rage at NAMM Show and other creative events over the past 5 years.  Blue Mics believes their Spark Digital will deliver the “same performance and detailed audio found in professional studios”, elevating beginning artists to the “next level of home recording”. Sounds promising…  but does it also talk the talk? Everything you’ll need to start recording is in box, with minimal

Adobe Creative Cloud Getting New Features & Hardware June 18th

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe appears to be in a bit of a crisis with what they want the public to know. A few days ago, Adobe announced that they would be making a big announcement on June 18th about the new Creative Cloud for 2014. This announcement detailed a lot of things that Adobe planned to announce for or related to the new Creative Cloud for 2014, but then they moderated their post today and removed all of the details about what they planned to show. Thanks to Google’s Cache and the Google Cache Browser, it was fairly easy to go back and get the details that Adobe
