official iphone 5c 1The iPhone 5c is like a happy middle between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5s. It isn’t as powerful as the iPhone 5s, but it is a tad newer than the iPhone 5, so for those who’d rather not buy the iPhone 5s, they had the iPhone 5c to consider. Unfortunately the device wasn’t exactly the most well-received, with Tim Cook admitting that the low sales were unexpected.

However it turns out that there were markets in which the iPhone 5c was doing well in, and it seems that it is over in the UK. According to the Kantar Worldpanel’s latest numbers, it was revealed that prior to the iPhone 6 being launched, the iPhone 5c was actually the best selling smartphone in the UK for the month of August.

hong kong protestAs you might have head, there are protests going on in Hong Kong regarding mainland China’s decision to approve candidates ahead of elections, which many claim makes a mockery out of democracy. China has reportedly banned Instagram from being used in China to block out the photos taken in Hong Kong, but according to new reports, that’s not all they’re doing.

It seems that there are some who are speculating that the Chinese government could be installing spyware on the phones of protesters in Hong Kong.

apple iwatch front ui 640x360The Apple Watch is said to enter mass production in January and is pegged for a possible release around Valentine’s Day in 2015. The device is one that is highly-anticipated, despite the fact that there have been several smartwatches released into the market ahead of the Apple Watch, but given that it is Apple, the hype is understandable.

That being said, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster recently advised in a note to his clients that they should expect conservative sales of the Apple Watch during its first year. He claims that “consumer application may be limited initially, until developers begin to create useful applications for the watch.” This is similar to the iPod which took a couple of years before it became the icon that it did.

htc recamera fcc 640x382Come 8th of October, HTC will be hosting an event in which we expect the company to announce a new product in the form of the “RE Camera”. While HTC has not explicitly stated what the product is, hidden images spotted on HTC’s website has revealed it to be some kind of periscope-like action camera that can be worn and taken underwater.

verizon logo stone wallA few months ago, and much to the disappointment of Verizon’s remaining unlimited data plan customers, the carrier announced that come October they would be throttling the speeds of some of its users who might be excessively using data. This naturally did not sit well with Verizon’s customers and the FCC who believed that Verizon had an obligation to uphold.

Well the good news is that it looks like the throttling of data will no longer be happening. Verizon has recently released a statement in which they wrote that they will no longer be implementing the throttling of data to its unlimited customers, which aren’t that many at the moment as the carrier has since done away with the plans, which only leaves those who have been grandfathered into the plans.

smartmat 640x334When we think of yoga mats, we tend to think of a rubberized surface that you can roll up, tuck under your arm, and head to a yoga class with. It’s simple, it’s portable, and it gets the job done. However it seems that some people have decided that the humble yoga mat could do with a tech upgrade, which has resulted in the SmartMat.

The SmartMat is essentially a yoga mat that will communicate with your mobile device via Bluetooth. From there it will be able to recognize that you are practicing yoga and will also be able to offer the user real time feedback as well as personalized instructions.
