"On the iPhone 6, the quickest way to reach the camera is often to lock the phone and start from there." - is this person retarded?

Apple has a successful and small iPhone design within reach - the question is whether (a) it knows it and (b) if it will be released.
There are times when I want my smartphone to be a phone, and the iPod Touch has reminded me of that. Of course it connects over Wi-Fi, the use of FaceTime and iMessage allows for phone-like communications, and with it running iOS 8 it is clear to see what a 'small' iPhone 6 would be like. Will Apple follow through on that promise with an iPhone 6C

Motorola's three-play strategy with the Moto X Style, X Play, and G, should serve it well in the fight for market share against Samsung.
Today's announcement of the Moto X Style, the Moto X Play, and the Moto G (Third Edition) measure up nicely to the competition. There is utility and functionality for the geekerati, there is fashion and flair to help attract consumers, and there is ubiquity and flexibility outside of the flagship fight, giving Motorola a huge edge in the unsaturated BRIC markets. What is the thinking behind the triumvirate?

It has been hard to enjoy Apple’s recent releases over the last few months. Updates for iOS appear to be arriving monthly to introduce more bugs than are fixed, OSX is focusing more on eye candy and cloud integration rather than a stable working environment, and Apple’s online services are more focused on making money than providing better user experiences. The shine is coming off Apple.

Apple computers are still top rank in my book, however their mobile devices are not as advanced as Android, but are more widely used due to their extremely simple and user friendly interface.

Sony is turning to Sweden to test it's new 'Concept for Android'. The timing is wrong, the focus is misguided, can the Japanese company not focus on other more pressing matters?
Sony is getting ready to release a new look to its Android smartphone devices. Owners of the Xperia Z3 can apply to join a beta program that will allow them to evaluate a new UI look called 'Concept For Android,' but only if they live in Sweden.

Android's latest flaw, 'Stagefright' is known, the patch is with Google, but when will you see it on your handset?
Stagefright reads like a threat from a Mission Impossible movie - nineteen out of twenty Android devices are vulnerable to six attack vectors delivered through the receipt of a multimedia text. The good news is that there is a software patch to resolve the issue. The bad news is that nobody is quite sure when your Android device will be able to install the patch.

Microsoft is proud of the Surface family of devices, highlighting the revenue it brought in during the last quarter. But can it be considered a success for Redmond?
Microsoft was proud to announce the increased revenue from the Surface device business. Does that mean that Microsoft can now regard the Surface adventure as a success? There are a number of issues that CEO Satya Nadella and the rest of Microsoft needs to keep in mind before they crack open any champagne.

+Simon Hartley His need has nothing to do with what was said. The 250 dollar tablet fits my needs until it doesn't and I have to pick up the surface to do the hard work.

THe sixth generation of the iPod Touch brings the media player bang up to date with the latest Apple CPU and GPU, but is it a worthwhile purchase? I review the latest iPod for Forbes.
Does the world still need the iPod Touch? Surely the functionality that it fills is covered by the lower priced iPhones? I've spent a week with the media player to find out, and the answer boils down to cost, target market, and opportunity for the Apple ecosystem to monetize more users over the next three years.

Until Tim Cook adds Qi charging to the iPhone, I'm just going to need to find a good wireless charging case for my iPhone. Can Supapowa deliver with their slimline model?
If there's one thing I'm looking for in every new phone, it's wireless charging. Maybe in September the new Apple handsets will join handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S6 with the wire-free power solution. Until then, wireless charging for the iPhone remains the domain of the third-party case manufacturers. I've been testing Supapowa's Ultra-slimline Wireless Charging Receiver Case, and while it's not perfect, it solves may of the issues around usi...
