The latest in absurd acts revolving Apple products comes to us courtesy of a Chinese smuggler who was caught with 94 iPhones strapped to his body. The iPhone-clad gentelmen looked like a myriad of packing packing tape and technology.

Apple has typically been a company whose focus has been on the user experience and that's largely the same today, at least when marketing to their base.

The A8 processor is a beast of a processor and one that offers impressive performance gains over the previous generation. The iPhone 6 checks plenty of boxes. It's the first true big screen iPhone, follows their tradition of stellar hardware build and continues to ship with upgrades abound. In a year that saw so many upgrades, why are they continuing to ship iPhones with a paltry 1GB of RAM? … [Read more...]

A collection of retailers including Rite-Aid and CVS have decided to disable NFC at their payment terminals. As a result, they have disabled Apple Pay functionality, along with Google Wallet (which also allows payments through NFC) as a beneficiary of the decision.

That hasn't prevented it from getting review torched by disenfranchised Apple enthusiasts, unhappy with the Apple Pay being turned off. The list of merchants supporting CurrentC is actually quite extensive with well known retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, … [Read more...]
