    Hands-On With The Droid Razr M: The Reversal Of ‘Big Phone Syndrome’ Feels Wonderful

    We’re here at the Motorola event in New York, and I just got my hands on the Droid Razr M, the “little big secret” that Motorola’s been amping up for. As you’d expect for a phone of this size, it feels excellent in the hand, with a 4.3-inch qHD display. As I’ve said over and over again, this screen size is the sweet spot. The most impressive thing about… Read More

    Motorola Officially Unveils The Droid RAZR HD And Droid RAZR MAXX HD

    The Droid Razr HD has been spinning its way around the rumor mill for quite some time. But today, in rainy New York city at Gotham Hall, Motorola is officially unleashing the device on the world. Not only that, the RAZR MAXX HD (what a mouthful) was also unveiled for anyone who needs even more battery life. The big thing (literally) we’re looking at a 4.7-inch HD display, something… Read More

  • Live From Motorola’s “On Display” Android Press Conference

    Live From Motorola’s “On Display” Android Press Conference

    Hello, Moto. We’re live at Motorola’s late summer press event and the stakes couldn’t be higher. The Samsung Galaxy S III is currently selling like mad, Nokia just announced killer hardware and the new iPhone will be announced next week. But judging by the look of this room, Motorola is ready to throw down. The title of the event is “On Display”. It doesn’t… Read More

    Nokia Debuts The 4.3″ Lumia 820: 5MP Camera, 1.5GHz Dual-Core S4 Processor, 8GB Of Storage

    Nokia has taken the stage in New York City, hand-in-hand with Microsoft of course, to deliver its latest round of Lumia smartphones, powered by Windows 8. While it’s not quite as impressive as big brother 920, the freshly announced Lumia 820 should still raise a few hairs on your neck. We’ve known very little about this phone from leaks, but now we can tell you with certainty that… Read More

    Microsoft Unveils New Windows Phone 8 Features: It’s All About Photos

    At Nokia’s press event today in New York, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore hopped on stage to demo Windows Phone 8 on the new Lumia 920. Windows Phone 8 was announced a while ago, but the manager of the Windows Phone platform took the stage to share a couple new bits of info about the forthcoming mobile operating system. The first bit of the demo threw it back to customizable live tiles… Read More

  • Room To Chat: Windows Phone 8 Tries Its Hand At Group Messaging

    Room To Chat: Windows Phone 8 Tries Its Hand At Group Messaging

    Windows Phone has done an excellent job with messaging. Mango offered threaded messages to users, allowing you to convert from a Facebook chat, SMS, and Windows Live messenger all from the same conversation window. But in the next iteration of Windows Phone 8, Microsoft will take this to a new level in the mobile OS with a new feature called Room. Room will essentially be a group chat, with… Read More

    From Disrupt Finalist To $8M In Funding And 2M Users, Voxy Tells All

    English learning app Voxy hit the scene nearly two years ago exactly, on our Disrupt SF stage. It was a great presentation, but perhaps more importantly it was a great business idea. Since then, Voxy is rated the number one education app in over 20 different countries, has raised a total of $8 million in funding, and now has over 2 million users. So I sat down with CEO and founder Paul Gollash… Read More

  • Vibease: The Long-Distance Relationship You Always Wanted

    Vibease: The Long-Distance Relationship You Always Wanted

    We’ve seen quite a few startups try to disrupt relationships lately. There’s Dejamor, which sends you a box of romance each month, Boink Box, which sends you a box of sex toys, and I seem to remember a somewhat embarrassing interview with OhMiBod at CES. And today, yet another sexy startup joins the space. It’s called Vibease, and it’s a “massager” as they… Read More

  • The Value Of Your iPhone Drops Every Second, So Try This

    The Value Of Your iPhone Drops Every Second, So Try This

    The value of your current iPhone is going down as I write this very sentence. And according to Gazelle, current iPhone models traditionally depreciate about 25 percent a couple weeks before the next generation iPhone is unveiled. And guess what? The new iPhone is about two weeks away. As Rafiki would say in the Lion King, “it is time.” But what do you do? Read More

  • This Is The Best Look At The New iPhone Yet

    This Is The Best Look At The New iPhone Yet

    Ah, the next-gen iPhone. What more can we say? Almost sadly, we already know the screen will be bigger, the connecting port is smaller, and the design will be drastically different, with a two-tone metal casing. And yet, we still haven’t seen one of these bad boys fully assembled. We’ve seen parts — boy have we seen parts! But with two weeks left until the official… Read More

    The Weather Channel iPad App Tops 10 Million Downloads

    We’ve followed The Weather Channel through its transition into the digital era. It started with a beautiful iPad app, and then the company revamped its iPhone app and website to match the new look and feel. And boy were there features! Social elements, notifications when it will rain, and personalized weather were all in the forecast. And today, the iPad app that started it all has… Read More

  • Galactic Status: Virgin Airlines Offers One Frequent Flier A Trip To Space

    Galactic Status: Virgin Airlines Offers One Frequent Flier A Trip To Space

    Virgin is one of my favorite airlines to fly on — it’s kind of like the airline of the future, with interactive displays in every head rest, cool lighting, an animated safety video, and there’s almost always WiFi on board. But Virgin is looking to be even more futuristic, promising the customer with the most miles at the end of the year a chance to upgrade to Galactic status. Read More

    AT&T Opens A Swanky 10,000 Sq. Ft. Flagship Store In Chi-Town

    Today, AT&T opened up its 10,000 square foot flagship retail store on Michigan Ave. in Chicago. It’s a bit of a beast, with an 18-foot Connect Wall that displays news and product info to everyone in the store and in the street. But despite all the cool technology (and trust me, there’s plenty), AT&T is really looking to have more of connection with its consumers. When you… Read More

    Samsung Announces The Galaxy Camera: 4.8″ Display, 16MP CMOS Sensor, 21x Zoom, And Jelly Bean

    At the IFA conference in Berlin, Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Camera, a 4.8-inch Android-powered camera with WiFi, 3G (or 4G) connectivity, and a quad-core SoC. See, digital cameras have lost their swagger. With the combination of pretty decent micro lenses and smartphones, the digital imaging sector has been left to the serious hobbyists and professionals. But Samsung, following… Read More

    Mint.com Tops 10 Million Registered Users, 70% Use Mobile

    Mint.com, a financial planning app that was a TC40 winner and acquired by Intuit in 2009, has just announced it has surpassed 10 million registered users. This is pretty incredible growth considering the company only had about 1.7 million users when it was acquired nearly three years ago. The service is tracking more than $80 billion in credit and debit transactions and almost $1 trillion in… Read More

    Dropbox Teams With Vimeo For Direct Video Uploads

    Today Dropbox and Vimeo have put their heads together to let Dropbox users upload content directly to Vimeo. Both companies have done a lot in the past few months to improve their user experiences. Dropbox now lets you share with links, and it was only a few months ago that Vimeo revamped the interface entirely, followed closely by the addition of customizable music options and a… Read More

  • New Update Appears To Bring ISIS Mobile Payments Support To T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II (Update)

    New Update Appears To Bring ISIS Mobile Payments Support To T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II (Update)

    It appears that a brand new update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II subtly includes an “ISIS/NFC update.” If this update enables the ISIS service on the phone, it would make the Galaxy S II the first phone to utilize the Google-Wallet mobile payments competitor. ISIS, if you happen to have forgotten, (no one would blame you, it was announced all the way back in 2010) is an… Read More

  • Winter Is Coming: The Great iPhone Cable Shortage Of 2012

    Winter Is Coming: The Great iPhone Cable Shortage Of 2012

    How many iOS charger cables do you own? You know, the 30-pin connector that’s been packaged alongside every iPod, iPhone and iPad for as long as I can remember. Personally, I own seven. Each of my friends and colleagues has (at the very least) more than one of these wires. Essentially, if you’ve owned an iThing for more than a few months, especially an iPhone, you probably own… Read More

    NPD: Apple Customers Love The Genius Bar, Mostly Because Service Is Free

    If you own an Apple product, chances are you’ve paid a visit to the Genius Bar, the magical place in the back of an Apple store where your broken iThings get fixed. It’s a beautiful system, at least that’s what 90 percent of Apple owners think. According to a study by NPD Group, nine of every ten Apple owners are somewhat or much more likely to make another Apple… Read More
