icloud 640x306Whether you follow celebrity gossip or tech news, it seems that both genres have collided paths today in what can only be seen as one of the largest leaks of celebrity nude photos. According to multiple reports, it seems that a hacker has been steadily building up a collection of photos of a variety of celebrities and if you’re wondering what’s this got to do with tech, well it seems that they have managed to access these photos by hacking into Apple’s iCloud storage service.

Apple has yet to comment on the allegations that they have been hacked, but according to the reports, it seems that for the most part they were taken from iCloud, or so they claim. For those who are a little fuzzy about Apple’s iCloud services, it’s basically where users can upload and sync data on their phone with the cloud storage service. Not only can it sync your contacts, your calendars, your messages, your notes, but it can also backup your photos. Read full post →Potential iCloud Hack Sees Compromising Celebrity Photos Leaked

nokia z launcher androidWith Nokia’s mobile division having been sold off to Microsoft, what will Nokia do with itself? We’ve heard some rumors that Nokia could be eyeing the consumer market again and could break in with Android devices, something which Microsoft swiftly put an end to, and also wearable devices under their HERE brand.

That being said, Nokia’s CEO Rajeev Suri has recently given an interview with the Economic Times of India in which he revealed the company’s desire to move back to the B-to-C (business to consumer) business, as opposed to merely being a player who remains in the background.

moto x1 leatherOne of the key features of the Moto X isn’t so much its hardware, but its customizability that allowed users to create a phone that suits their aesthetic preferences. Motorola also threw in some interesting material choices, such as wood, which allowed the device to look and feel different from the competition.

Now one of the new options for the Moto X+1 has been rumored to be leather and thanks to a recent photo by TK Tech News, an alleged image of the Moto X+1 with a leather backplate has surfaced. It’s a bit hard to tell that it’s leather but according to the post, it is, although we guess you should probably take it with a grain of salt for now.

lenovo inviteJust last week, Apple sent out invites to an event for the 9th of September which is where they will presumably announce the iPhone 6. The tagline reads, “Wish we could say more,” and it looks like Lenovo has drawn some inspiration from Apple’s invite because in a recent post on Twitter, the company reminded users that they had something to announce on the 4th of September.

As you can see in the image above, the design of the invite certainly looks like it could have been inspired by Apple. That and the fact that the tagline reads, “We can’t say anything either,” seems to be a subtle jab at Apple’s own invite. That being said, the invite clearly shows that Lenovo will be announcing the Vibe X2 at their event. Read full post →Lenovo’s Vibe X2 Invite Takes A Slight Poke At Apple

emojli 640x546Back in June, an unusual app called Emojli was announced. For those who are hearing about this for the first time, Emojli is basically an app that only allows users to send messages to one another using Emojis, which for those unfamiliar are those colorful emoticons that you’ve probably seen every now and then in messages you’ve received or seen on the internet.

Well for those who think that the Emojli app is a great idea, you might be pleased to learn that the app has officially launched and you will be able to get your hands on it via the iTunes App Store. Unfortunately it does not appear to be available for Android just yet, but perhaps they might release an Android version later, but for now it will be limited to just iOS.

New Moto X Verizon Phandroid 640x315A couple of weeks ago, Motorola sent out invites to an event that they would be hosting on the 4th of September. While we guess the event could be for just about anything, many have speculated that the announcement could be for the new Moto X and possibly the new Moto G as well.

While it remains to be seen if that is the case, the folks at Phandroid have recently obtained a screenshot of what appears to be Verizon’s internal system which lists the Moto X. Now the new Moto X has gone by the Moto X+1 moniker, but according to Verizon’s system, it is simply referred to as the new Moto X. Read full post →The New Moto X Will Be Headed For Verizon

samsung logo 640x389We’re guessing if there’s one feature that Samsung fans are looking forward to with the Galaxy Note 4 would be its rumored QHD display. This would make it Samsung’s second smartphone to sport such a display, although it would be the first to be available around the world (the Galaxy S5 LTE-A was limited to South Korea).

That being said, is a QHD display a reality or just a pipe dream? Well for those who are a bit skeptical, hopefully this will clear your doubts. It seems that some details of the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 have been spotted on Samsung’s website via its UAProf. According to the UAProf, it lists the display of the Galaxy Note 4 as 2560×1440, effectively giving it a QHD display as previously rumored.

ip6 logicSome of the rumors of the iPhone 6 that we have heard recently includes how the phone is expected to sport an NFC chip which will be used to facilitate mobile payments, and how the phone is said to come with 1GB of RAM, which some of you guys have understandably found a little disappointing especially when compared to the competition.

That being said, recent photos have surfaced which shows off a more fully assembled logic board that purportedly belongs to the iPhone 6. On this logic board, as you can see in the image above, it shows off a chip which “confirms” that NFC will be one of the features of the iPhone 6. The chip is apparently made by NXP Semiconductors which is also in line with an earlier rumor. Read full post →Alleged iPhone 6 Logic Board Shows Of 16GB Storage And NFC Chip

iphone 6 5s booting 640x480We can only hope and assume that with the iPhone 6, Apple will not only be bumping the screen size of the phone, but its resolution as well. After all what’s the point of having a large display but have low-resolution, right? Well previously we have heard some theories on the potential resolution of the iPhone 6 and those theories could have recently been proven.

According to the theory, it was speculated that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 could sport a resolution of 1334×750, as suggested by John Gruber who used a bit of math wizardry to arrive at that number. Now thanks to a recent tweet by developer Steve Troughton-Smith, he has basically confirmed the resolution based on recently leaked videos of the iPhone 6.
