iphone6preorderskaput 640x464Usually when Apple announces a new iPhone, more often than not if you were a bit slow on the draw when pre-orders go live, it would be pretty hard for you to get your hands on the device unless you don’t mind waiting a couple of weeks or trying your luck at one of the Apple retail outlets instead.

Now previously we had reported that the iPhone 6 Plus’ pre-order shipping estimates had slipped to 3-4 weeks, but if you had your eye on the iPhone 6, you might be interested to learn that you could end up waiting as well. This is according to the iPhone 6’s pre-order page in which the 4.7-inch model seems to have an estimated shipping time of 7-10 days.

This is because you could potentially bump into someone and knock them down, or you could walk into traffic without knowing it. Read full post →City In China Gives Cellphone Users Their Own Sidewalk

google logo 2011 10 25One of the ways to get noticed on the internet is by being relevant enough where Google will list you as one of the results in its search pages, but interestingly enough in a bid to draw attention to himself and his new work, an artist by the name of Dan Roach had submitted a request to Google, asking them to for the “right to be forgotten”.

The odd thing is that the link was an article about Roach himself which was neither disparaging nor offensive. In fact it was a piece written by Peter John of the Worcester News in which Roach and his was praised as being “excellent” and “very talented”. According to Roach in a statement he gave to Worcester News, “The decision to ask for the link to be removed from Google was based on no more than a wish to highlight my new work, rather than the old.” Read full post →Artists Asks Google “To Be Forgotten” To Highlight His New Work

fingerprint gunThere have been a lot of debate about gun safety over the years, and there have been many suggestions that have come up. For example earlier this year gun manufacturer Armatix came up with a solution which is to pair a gun with a smartwatch, thus allowing it to fire only if the smartwatch is in range. This means that if you don’t have the watch, you can’t fire it, which would hopefully help reduce accidental shootings or gun theft.

Well it looks like we now have another possible contender for smarter guns, thanks to a 17-year old by the name of Kai Kloepfer, a high school student from Boulder who won the $50,000 grand prize in the SmartTech for Firearms Challenge. Kloepfer’s answer to gun safety was to embed a fingerprint sensor on the gun, thus unlocking it only if an authorized fingerprint is detected.

my go gofone windows phone 06 story 640x341So we have heard the rumors that Microsoft could be getting ready to drop the Nokia and Windows Phone branding from its future smartphones. The Nokia brand is understandable as the name still belongs to Nokia over in Finland, but to drop Windows Phone? That could be potentially confusing.

Well thanks to the eagle-eyed folks over at Neowin, it certainly seems like that is the case. They have spotted a Windows Phone made by My Go called GoFone GF47W on an unlinked micro website in which images of the upcoming handset were spotted. One of the images, shown above, is of the back portion of the phone in which it just says “Windows” now. Read full post →Upcoming Windows Phone Handset Spotted With “Windows” Branding Instead
