mac mini 640x511A few days ago, Apple finally introduced an update to the Mac mini computer which had not been updated for a while. However interestingly enough Apple had decided to go with a dual-core setup versus the quad-core setup from before, although in all fairness the new Mac mini computers will feature Intel’s Haswell chipset, versus the Ivy Bridge processors from the 2012 model.

That being said, how does the new Mac mini fare compared to its predecessor? Well according to recently released GeekBench benchmark results (via MacRumors), there are some upsides and downsides to the dual-core system. In terms of single core performance, the new Mac mini is showing signs of improvements over its predecessor. Read full post →Apple’s New Mac Mini Shows Improved Single-Core Performance

Lenovo TAB S8 2 640x352There was one point in time in which BlackBerry had found itself in a spot of trouble financially. There were talks about a possible acquisition by Fairfax Financial, although this later turned out to be an injection of cash by the company instead. While BlackBerry is definitely not where it used to be, they seem to be holding up, especially with devices like the BlackBerry Passport selling like hotcakes.

That being said, a report from Benzinga has revealed a rather tasty rumor that Lenovo could be thinking about making a bid for BlackBerry as soon as this week. The company is expected to pay anywhere between $15-$18 per share to acquire the company, and while this might seem like an odd rumor, we should note that many had expressed disbelief over Apple’s acquisition of Beats which later turned out to be true.

iphone 6 plus china unicom 640x480

Now this is a novel idea that many iPhone 6 Plus owners will like. A carrier in China is offering customers who purchase the iPhone 6 Plus a pocket enlargement service. The idea is pretty simple. Customers can get the pockets on their pants enlarged so that they’re big enough to comfortably accommodate the iPhone 6 Plus, which has already been accused of bending when being carried around in tight pockets.
