  • WinZip iOS App Lets You Crack Open .Zip Files From Anywhere

    WinZip iOS App Lets You Crack Open .Zip Files From Anywhere

    Having access to your documents and pictures is really easy these days. About a million services, including Dropbox and iCloud, allow you to sync your stuff between devices, but there’s one little thorn in our collective cloud-syncing side: it’s called a .zip file. Fortunately, WinZip has just launched on the Apple App Store and it effectively rids us of this particularly… Read More

    Motorola Droid 4 Review: This Keyboard Rocks, But That’s About It

    The Droid 4 doesn’t look much like its other Droid siblings, but it does promise the same stellar keyboard and a solid construction. At $199 it won’t break your wallet, but it will offer most of the same specs we’re seeing go for $300, including a 4G LTE radio. If thin and light is important to you, the Droid 4 probably isn’t what you’re looking for, but… Read More

    Ridiculously Pricey Lumia 800 Bundle Available Now In MS Retail Stores

    We’ve talked about the Lumia line quite a bit in the past few months, but the series is finally starting to feel real. Just last week the 900 was made available for pre-order, and today we’re seeing reports that the staggeringly high-priced Lumia 800 bundle is just hanging out on Microsoft store shelves waiting for some new Windows Phone fans to stroll in. Along with the phone… Read More

    Snag Last-Minute Concert Tickets With The New Thrillcall iOS App

    We all love music. I mean, when’s the last time you heard someone say they didn’t like listening to music? But for some of us, plugging in some ear buds and cranking a jam or two on the iPod just doesn’t cut it. If that sounds like you, please allow me to introduce you to one of the newest apps to grace the iOS platform: Thrillcall. Thrillcall has taken its live music… Read More

    Amazon Steals 14% Tablet Market Share In Q4, Apple Share Drops To 57%

    We’ve known since the Fire first debuted that it would create some competition for Apple’s iPad, which has dominated the market since it arrived. But today iSuppli has offered up a little insight into just how fierce the competition really is. According to the research firm, Apple’s market share in the tablet arena dropped from 64 percent in Q3 to 57 percent in Q4, with… Read More

    Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Head-To-Head With The Galaxy Nexus And Streak 5

    If last week’s showdown between the Droid 4, Droid 3, and iPhone 4S didn’t get your blood pumping, prepare yourself for the heavyweight round. We’ve got the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note going up against the Dell Streak and the beastly Galaxy Nexus. Obviously the Streak is a somewhat older device, but it’s very similar in size to the Note which should give… Read More

  • OS X Mountain Lion Brings The Mac Into The Game

    OS X Mountain Lion Brings The Mac Into The Game

    Gamers, start your engines, lift your fruit-slicing swords, and lace up your Temple-running shoes. Game Center, Apple’s gaming/social hub for iOS, has finally made it’s way over to the more mature Apple OS, OS X Mountain Lion. This is huge. Not because you’ll be able to enjoy the features of Game Center while playing around on your Mac (which will likely be great fun… Read More

  • TC at Toy Fair 2012: Locomotion

    Toy Fair 2012: Locomotion

    Yesterday I went to the 2012 Toy Fair, and to be honest I was really disappointed. I’m 23 years old, and I’d estimate that 90 percent of what I saw yesterday was a variation of a toy I played with as a child. My 50-year old parents might even say the same thing. There were more stuffed animals than I care to remember, lots of toy guns and building blocks, and plenty of R/C cars and… Read More

  • Motorola Outlines Further Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plans

    Motorola Outlines Further Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plans

    Motorola has already confirmed that the Xooms, Droid Bionic, Razr, Razr Maxx and the Droid 4 will get a hefty helping of Ice Cream Sandwich this year, but the company has added a few more devices to its ICS upgrade schedule. The Photon 4G, Atrix 4G, Atrix 2, and the Electrify will all see Android 4.0 at some point during the course of 2012. Motorola lists most of the devices for a Q3… Read More

  • Evidence Of A Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Sprouts Up All Over The Place

    Evidence Of A Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Sprouts Up All Over The Place

    Remember when that Samsung product marketing manager Ryan Bidan let slip a few details on the next-gen GalTab and/or Galaxy Note? He mentioned the inclusion of an S-Pen, 3D gestures (courtesy of a front-facing camera), and voice controls. Well, it would seem that further proof of the product he was detailing has trickled out, and just like the last time, it’s coming straight from the… Read More

  • Apple Yanks The iPad Off Of Amazon’s Chinese Shelves, But Why?

    Apple Yanks The iPad Off Of Amazon’s Chinese Shelves, But Why?

    If for some reason you were to mosey on over to Amazon’s Chinese website and perform a search for the iPad, you know what you’d find? No iPad. Now, you might think to yourself, “Wow, Proview pulled it off,” but that’s not the case at all. In fact, an Amazon spokesperson said that the Apple was the one who requested that the iPad be taken off the site. Proview… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Note Review

    Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Initial Impressions (Video)

    Even if it isn’t my favorite new device, I’m glad to see the Galaxy Note bring something totally different to the mobile table. At first glance you’d think it was a tablet, especially when you set it next to a “regular” phone, but you’d soon realize the Note has a 4G LTE radio tucked inside to let you phone home. Unfortunately, you might look a little… Read More

  • Motorola’s First Ice Cream Sandwich Handset Smiles For The Camera

    Motorola’s First Ice Cream Sandwich Handset Smiles For The Camera

    Motorola’s latest handsets have been pretty impressive. The Razr and Razr Maxx, in particular, are excellent handsets. But it would seem that the (almost) freshly acquired company has no intentions of resting on its laurels. Rather than sticking with its usual OMAP-powered devices, Motorola has slapped an Intel Medfield chip on to this anonymous device. And lest we forget, Ice Cream… Read More

  • Motorola Droid 4 Review: Head-To-Head With The Droid 3 And iPhone 4S

    Motorola Droid 4 Review: Head-To-Head With The Droid 3 And iPhone 4S

    As you’ll notice quite quickly from this infographic, we’re pitting the Droid 4 against its predecessor, the Droid 3, along with the iPhone 4S. For anyone who isn’t a die-hard Android fan, the iPhone 4S usually comes into the equation when it comes time to upgrade hardware. Since many of our reviews will be of Android devices (and Windows Phone) rather than iOS, we wanted to… Read More

  • Motorola Droid 4 Review

    Motorola Droid 4 Review: Initial Impressions (Video)

    Before we chat out the Droid 4 there’s a bit of other news we need to address right quick. As you’ll surely notice, we’re doing smartphone reviews a little differently now. That said, this video and my basic hands-on impressions are just the first in a three-part series reviewing the phone. Stay tuned for what comes next! Alright then, back to business… The Motorola Droid… Read More

  • For And Against The iPad Mini

    For And Against The iPad Mini

    Rumors of a 7- to 7.85-inch iPad have been swirling around for a long while now. We’ve seen reports get killed moments after they initially break, only to be sneakily resurrected weeks or months later. The rumor simply won’t die. The problem, however, is that this one in particular is a tough nut to crack. When you take all the evidence both for and against a little iPad… Read More

    NFC is picking up traction everywhere you look, and the latest news comes out of the UK’s Proxama.

    Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 Leaks With Upgraded Display, Processor

    After a year on the market, the Samsung Galaxy Mini is certainly due for a refresh. That said, GSMArena seems to have received promotional materials and photos for the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 from an anonymous tipster. It bares a resemblance to the Galaxy Ace in many ways, with that flat home button and silver bezel. Read More

    Notorious industry insider Eldar Murtazin has made yet another forward-looking statement, this time regarding Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and one very special Samsung device. This leaves just one question in our minds: Is this one of his hits, or is it another miss?

    You Can Buy Me Love, But Please Don’t Buy Me Gadgets

    Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and the majority of us are likely scrambling to find that special gift. (The rest of us, meanwhile, are cursing couples.) A Valentine’s Day gift is usually more important than others because it’s a one-on-one situation, unlike Christmas or birthdays. Just one gift, to just one person — and it better be good. With that in… Read More
