iwatch concept moyano wristAccording to the rumors, Apple’s iWatch is set for an announcement this October, but when exactly can we expect its release? Well according to reports out of China (via MacRumors), it seems that we can only look forward to the iWatch’s release in December. The report claims that the iWatch will most likely be released alongside the 5.5-inch iPhone 6.

Earlier rumors have suggested that Apple could have run into some production issues with the 5.5-inch model of the iPhone 6. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is apparently on track and could be released in the next few months, while the larger iPhone model is said to be delayed possibly until 2015.

film camera 640x640Many movies are being filmed in digital these days. Why? Well for starters filming digital is a lot easier than film in the sense that it is more accessible. For example a budding cinematographer can go to a camera shop and pick up a DSLR camera which can shoot very nicely in digital. Finding a camera that shoots video in film is not so easy, and probably won’t be cheap as well.

In fact movie studio Paramount had announced earlier this year that they will soon start distributing all their films in the digital format for the US market, with other markets to follow after. Interestingly enough it seems that while digital does seem like the way to go and is probably the future, it seems that some big names in Hollywood will be teaming up with Kodak in a bid to help keep the film format alive.

It’s actually interesting to note that while in some parts of the world, there is a huge amount of support for BlackBerry, there are other parts of the world where companies are wasting no time in getting rid of BlackBerry devices. While it seems that BlackBerry might have gained a supporter in the German government, they might soon be losing customers from Ford Motor.

According to a report from Bloomberg, it seems that Ford will soon be ditching their BlackBerry devices by the end of the year. In its place, the car manufacturing company will be equipping their employees with Apple’s iPhone instead. The first wave will see about 3,300 BlackBerry handsets replaced by iPhones.

amazon kindle fire hdx 8.9 review 5 640x424A couple of months ago, it was reported that Amazon and book publisher Hachette were in a dispute of sorts. This led to books published by Hachette to be removed from Amazon’s website, have their prices jacked up, or have their shipments delayed. So what’s the deal? Is this just Amazon trying to be greedy?

Well on the surface it would seem that way, but according to a recent post by Amazon, they claim that the reason behind their dispute with Hachette is because Amazon is trying to bring ebook prices down. As it stands, there are many ebooks released which are priced anywhere between $14.99 to $19.99, a price which Amazon thinks is unfairly high for customers.

mac mini 640x330The last time Apple released the Mac Mini it was back in October of 2012, meaning that it has been two years since Apple has released an update for the computer. However could that be changing soon? According to reports, it seems that some have spotted a support document on Apple’s website in which there is a reference made to a 2014 version of the Mac Mini.

The support document in question is for the Boot Camp software and its compatibility where the Mac Mini (mid 2014) model was spotted. Given that there have been no Mac Mini computers released from 2012 until now, it seems unlikely that this could have been made in error especially since the late 2012 model has been referenced in the document as well.

swellWhile Apple has some pretty nicely designed apps, perhaps there have been some that they have neglected, like their Podcasts app which has been given pretty bad reviews on the iTunes App Store. Perhaps they’re looking to revamp it and perhaps they’re thinking about improving the way podcasts are discovered because it looks like the Cupertino company might have recently acquired Swell.

For those unfamiliar, Swell is basically like a Pandora for podcasts where it will help create playlists for users based on what they have searched for before. The UI of Swell has also been designed for driving which would make perfect sense if Apple were to integrate it with CarPlay. Apple’s acquisition of the company was confirmed in a boilerplate statement they released to The Wall Street Journal reporter, Daisuke Wakabayashi.

As BlackBerry gets ready to launch the BlackBerry Passport, there have been several videos making their rounds which shows off the device. The most recent one took us through the handset’s touch-based keyboard and thanks to a recent upload on Instagram, the sound quality of the BlackBerry Passport’s speakers have been revealed.

Now this probably won’t beat hearing them in real life, but for a recording it is pretty obvious that the speaker quality on the BlackBerry Passport is impressive. It is both loud and clear, which is probably thanks to the fact that BlackBerry designed the speakers to be as loud as tablets. Read full post →BlackBerry Passport Speakers Demonstrated On Video

cortana chinaAccording to a rumor last week, we heard that Microsoft could be thinking about renaming Cortana for the China market. Presumably this is to give the voice assistant feature a more local name to help get more customers interested. While it remains to be seen if Cortana will be renamed in China, Microsoft has unveiled a new logo and design for the feature for the Chinese market.

This was revealed on Microsoft’s Windows Phone blog where as you can see in the image above, Cortana has been given a pair of eyes and has been designed to look cuter. This is as opposed to the normal version of Cortana where it looks more AI-like. Cortana for China will also be gaining additional features such as being able to display air quality, driving restrictions, and can also lookup English words in the Bing Dictionary.

About a week ago we reported that for one night only, the voice acting cast of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us would be performing live on stage. The show, dubbed The Last of Us: One Night Live, was performed live at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. Well the good news for those who have missed it because they weren’t in the area or didn’t have the time, you will be pleased to learn that the performance has been uploaded onto YouTube.

So for international fans of the game, you will be able to catch the cast in action in their theatrical performance.
