In its unending search for perfection, Apple has decided to completely redesign its iconic white earbuds. The new Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic are now the default earphones that ship with the new iPhone 5 and iPod touch, but you can also buy them separately.
They're still white, and aesthetically they look slightly squashed, but that's because they've been redesigned to ensure the maximum amount of sound is pumped directly into your ear canal.
The new EarPod design makes sense – ear holes ...
The iPhone 5 launches 21 September in most countries and most of these products have begun the long journey from factory to trouser pocket, according to delivery schedules.
For customers who were first in the pre-order queue, many of these iPhone 5's are shipping now. The UPS delivery report even states that the phone is coming from ZhengZhou, China which is the base of the elusive, 120 000-workforce strong Foxconn iPhone plant.
So that means this weekend is the official ...
Yes, this is the next controller for your, well any device really. Its the iControlPad 2 and it wants to massage your gaming gland.
It's about the same size as the iPhone 4S, has two analogue nipples, a QWERTY keyboard, a D-pad, four face buttons, two shoulder buttons and it swivels out from the back of the phone for easier access.
We don't take kindly to device mockups round here
For the few of us who owned the iControlPad 1, ...
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be unveiled at the 2013 Mobile World Congress according to "internal sources at Samsung who wish to remain anonymous." With 99% of the iPhone 5 leaks being confirmed as legitimate and with the same phone being a contender for the device to have for 2013, the chances of the Galaxy S4 coming out next year is even money.
This "leak" comes a mere three days after the launch of the excessively hyped, and poorly-received iPhone 5. Here's what the unofficial "official" announcement says: ...
It's here. This is the first known benchmark of an iPhone 5, care of these hard-working fellas.
Now if the score means nothing to you, that's fine, it meant nothing to us as well until we discovered that the iPhone 4S scored a 629. Even the iPad 3 with its meagre score of 766 has issues when it comes to topping the iPhone 5. There's also a full-rundown of all Apple devices, benchmarked here.
Everything else is in order. ...
In a perfect world, we'd all have cameras like the new XF1 from Fujifilm. Launching in October for US$500, these 12MP shooters clad in fake red, black or tan should reach that retro itch we've been dying to scratch.
Is there anything here to warrant a purchase though? We've got a high-definition FUJINON 25mm wide angle F1.8 lens, macro shots as close as 3cm, a brand-new menu dial to quickly access the manual settings and the EXR CMOS sensor that promises ...
This week I am really excited about my interviewee, not only because I really love his work, but I do appreciate his frank approach to everything he does. I’ve used thalamus’ kernels on all of my Android devices and his kernels have improved the performance and battery life of my HTC Desire, Nexus S and now my Nexus Prime so I’m very familiar with his work and the benefits his kernels offer.
On occasion he can be brutal towards ignorant users, ...

We almost, almost missed this story and ironically, it's one of the most important tech innovations to emerge this year. Intel's revealed it's fourth-gen CPU, called "Haswell", and it's specifically aimed at making mobile computing faster, better and more hardcore.
At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Haswell has been revealed to have 20 times more power than the 2nd-gen Intel CPUs of yore. Additionally, and by 2013, Intel plans to add CPUs with even lower power requirements ...
Well what did you expect? The latest demo from one of the world's most popular sports franchises, FIFA 13, has been downloaded almost two-million times in the past three days. That's 1.99 million downloads, in 73 countries for the the PC, Xbox and PS3.
