Microsoft intros the new Surface Pro, the lightest and fastest Surface tablet to date

As expected, Microsoft unveiled a brand new Surface Pro slate, at its hardware event held in Shanghai, China. The Redmond-based company is calling this “the new Surface Pro” since it’s an upgraded version of the previous model.

Apparently, the new Surface Pro doesn’t come with any meaningful innovations over the previous model so that it could be released on the market as the Surface Pro 5.

The new tablet comes with a powerful Intel Core i7 7th Gen processor and a battery that should provide up to 13.5 hours of video playback. LTE Advanced is on board as …

Man sues his date for texting during a movie


We’ve all been angered at the movies by the guy or gal who is so selfish that he/she starts calling someone or texting while the movie is playing. There are so many ways how that can be annoying. First, there is the light from the screen, not to mention both sides of the conversation that can be heard. And the clacking of the keyboard created by texting can be a huge distraction to movie goers. That is why Theater Mode on the Apple Watch is so useful. It keeps the screen dark until you tap a button or press on the screen. The raise-to-wake feature is disabled, and sound is muted. Hopefully, …

Deal: Samsung Gear S2 is nearly 50% off on Amazon, biggest discount to date

Although Samsung’s latest Tizen-powered smartwatch, the Gear S3 recently received a small price cut, it’s still quite expensive for those who couldn’t afford the wearable device in the first place.

OnePlus 5 price and release date? Let's make an educated guess…

OnePlus has managed to achieve what’s nearly impossible in today’s oversaturated smartphone market — make a name for themselves, gather a following, and even build a certain level of anticipation for its next product. All of this through tons of (hit-and-miss) guerrilla marketing, aggressive pricing, and attention to customer needs and desires.

Needless to say, the upcoming OnePlus 5 doesn’t suffer from a lack of interest, especially since it is to follow up two pretty successful products — the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The company has now started to tease it more …

Google promises to bring back Maps support to the Apple Watch at a later date

As some of you probably read, a couple of important apps have suddenly lost support for the Apple Watch, even though users haven’t been notified in any way. Google, Amazon, eBay and Target have all pulled their main apps from the Apple Watch store for unknown reasons.

Moreover, Google Maps app no longer supports Apple Watch. Despite the fact that some believe apps shouldn’t be used on smartwatches, it’s one less functionality that you can take advantage of.

In any case, if you own the Apple Watch and felt disappointed that Google no longer supports Maps on …

BlackBerry KEYone release date in the US is May 31, carrier availability in tow

The BlackBerry KEYone is on top of everyone’s mind these days, or at least on those who want to buck the trend, break the Apple-Samsung duopoly, and all around look hip and nonconformist. It’s 2017, so a handset with a physical keyboard does stand out, and the KEYone is on top of that decked out well in terms of specs, and has a premium metal design to boot. Thankfully, it also runs Android now, so all of the apps you are used to, will be safe and secure on it.

BlackBerry is giving a 4.5″ 1080p display, a frugal, but powerful Snapdragon 625 chipset, a 12 MP camera with large …

OnePlus 5 rumor review: design, specs, price and release date

Many a geek have already branded OnePlus’ latest phones—the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T—the spiritual successors to the Nexus line of developer-friendly phones. That’s a notion OnePlus likely wants to keep around, which automatically puts a ton of stress on the company and requires it to keep it up with the gained momentum.
The OnePlus 5 is expected to become official sooner than later as numerous rumors and leaks are hinting at a May or early June announcement by OnePlus. True, the company doesn’t really have an established annual time window …

The iPhone 8 release date may be pushed to November, as suppliers struggle with new components

When Apple chooses a component supplier, it’s not only since they can ensure production in mass quantities on a giant scale, but also because the parts can be churned out with a consistently high quality, ready to be put in a new iPhone. That’s not a small feat to achieve even for companies the rank of Foxconn, and, this year, there will be a never-before-attempted shot at iPhone greatness with an alleged OLED iPhone 8 in the wings.

Nikkei’s Asian Review is reporting that suppliers are scrambling to fit a variety of parts in the desired production schedule, and these range from …
