In some ways this doesn’t really come as a surprise given that Apple has patents for such a design in the past, although recent rumors seem to suggest that the accessory might not be making its debut with the iPhone 6.

This is according to a new note from KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo (via AppleInsider) who notes that he doesn’t expect Apple to ship the new cable with the iPhone 6. He claims that the reason for this is apparently due to cost concerns as well as “limited improvements to overall user experience”.

hearthstone 640x359When the World of Warcraft TCG came to an end, we’re sure many wondered if Blizzard would ever come up with another TCG and sure enough they did in the form of Hearthstone. Hearthstone, for those unfamiliar, is Blizzard’s latest game and it is a free-to-play title, although gamers have the option of paying for new packs of cards if they’d rather not grind for it.

That being said, the game has taken off in a huge way and there are many prominent Hearthstone players at the moment, but given that the game started off pretty small, how big are Blizzard’s ambitions for the game? Speaking in an interview with the folks over at IGN, Hearthstone’s producer Yong Yoo revealed that they plan for players to keep playing the game, even 10 years from now.

sony dimensions ifaAs we all know, IFA 2014 is around the corner and based on the leaks and rumors, it seems that Sony has a couple of things that they are planning on announcing. For starters we can probably look forward to an announcement of the Sony Xperia Z3, the Xperia Z3 Compact, and maybe even the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.

As you can see in the image above, they are teasing a device which measures 124mm x 6.4mm. Based on that we can safely rule out a tablet, even if it was a compact one, which means that we can either look forward to the Xperia Z3 or Xperia Z3 Compact.

According to an earlier leak, the alleged Moto X+1 was spotted in the flesh. While photos are great, we guess videos would be even better as they would allow us to see more angles of the device, and if a video was what you were after, the folks at TK Tech News (via Pocket Now) have recently released a video that shows off the handset a bit more.

Now if there is one thing the video points out, it is that the flash unit of the Moto X+1 is apparently around the camera lens itself, which you can check out in the video above and if you were to take a closer look at it. We’re not sure how this will work out and if the flash might interfere with the actual image, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and find out for ourselves.

samsung soundbar 640x427While there are some users who prefer bookshelf speakers or larger tower-like speakers, sometimes space can be a bit constrained and that’s where soundbars come into the picture. Due to the compact nature, they can typically be fit underneath or on top of your television set and if you had your eye on a new soundbar speaker, you might be interested to learn that Samsung has something for you.

The South Korean tech giant is expected to show off a new soundbar at IFA 2014. However what makes this particular soundbar interesting is the fact that it is curved. It will feature a width of 42mm and a curvature radius of 4,200mm. So if you had your eyes on a curved TV from Samsung or if you already have one, we reckon this soundbar will fit just fine.
