All eyes are on Microsoft to reveal more about its next major platform update at its BUILD conference next month, but there has already been a steady stream of leaks about Windows Phone 8.1. The update is a bit far off, we don’t expect it to be released before the second quarter. Rumors suggest that it will finally bring a standalone notification center, custom Start screen backgrounds as well as a digital assistant that will rival Siri.

One might argue that its a bit too soon for iPhone 6 rumors, but it really is often fascinating to read what the rumor mill is on about, particularly when it concerns one of the biggest product updates expected from Apple in recent years. It is widely believed that iPhone 6 will come with radical changes, presumably a bigger display and a new design. Details about the camera have emerged, originating from China, apparently the iPhone 6 will retain the existing 8 megapixel rear shooter.

youtube-copyrightThose who live in the land of the free and home of the brave might be aghast to hear that YouTube is actually banned in some countries, such as China, Iran and Pakistan at one point or another in time? It seems that Pakistan might eventually end its ban on YouTube, a company that is owned by Google, and it also happens to be the world’s most popular video sharing site. The YouTube ban was imposed in September a couple of years ago after Google Inc. refused to remove the highly controversial video, Innocence of Muslims.

Consumer interest and subsequent demand for a product can be quite fluid. The market can be swayed by new competitors offering more bang for the buck as opposed to their rivals, whereas for some its a matter of brand loyalty while some just want to stick with the product that has always worked for them. As the crop of new Android flagships gets ready to hit the market, its worthwhile to judge what the existing iPhones’ perception is in front of consumers. It appears that many prospective smartphone buyers still prefer the iPhone 5s as opposed to its unapologetically plastic sibling, the iPhone 5c.
