iPhone 5 Release Date: Will Galaxy S3 Pose a Threat?

There is no denying that the Smartphone Battle of the Year 2012 will be between two giants, the Apple iPhone 5, and Samsung Galaxy S3, both of which are yet to be released. MWC (Mobile World Congress) came and went and nothing about the Galaxy S3 was shown by Samsung, which means, the company could be playing its cards close to the chest, or waiting to see what Apple has in store before it does anything. Apple on the other hand, remains tightlipped as usual, about what the next generation iPhone...

Will Google Assistant Work Better than Siri?

No denying the fact that Apple’s Siri is a runaway success, and also the key feature in the iPhone 4S that helped the device to surpass expectations when it was released in late 2011. Siri, which is not considerably better than most voice recognition software when it comes to returning results, is mostly known for its human-like interaction and fun to use. Google is well aware of the threat Siri could cause, and is hard at work on releasing a competing product known as “Assistant.”

Apple's new toy, the iPad 3 (or iPad HD, according to some), is expected to make a splash on March 7. Whenever the next iPad is unveiled, the device will be going up against a host of other tablets all running Android. It is inevitable, the next iPad will face stiffer competition from, and probably might not be as successful as the previous versions, but one thing is certain, 2012 will be one interesting year when it comes to tablets.

Asus Tipped to Release First Android Jelly Bean Device

Since 2011, we have been hearing rumors that the next version of Android will be called Jelly Bean. There are no solid specifics on what to expect feature wise, but apparently the new OS would make use of some of the features in Chrome OS, or even merge both. Jelly Bean is nowhere ready to be released, but already the rumor mill is overflowing with the chatter of Asus being the first manufacturer to launch an Android Jelly Bean-based device.

Here’s a quick look at the 8 killer features that would help iPad 3 put Android rivals out of business, or at least help the iPad stay ahead in the race.

Zynga Launches New Gaming Platform: Is Honeymoon with Facebook Over?

Things are getting heated in the land where Farmville and other casual games reign supreme. Zynga, the largest game developer on Facebook, has created a new site (http://www.Zynga.com) where it plans to hosts third party games along with its own. Facebook makes a lot of money from users paying for Zynga games; money Zynga would rather have lining its pockets instead of sharing.

iPad 3 Release: Can Proview Prevent Apple from Launching New Tablet on March 7?

Things are getting ugly as Apple’s March 7 event draws closer. The event is highly expected to display, for the first time, the Apple iPad 3, but with a lawsuit between Apple and Proview looming, there could be a problem getting the iPad 3 on the store shelves. Proview first sued Apple in China over the iPad trademark, which saw the device being pulled from store shelves temporarily, but now the fight is spilling over onto Apple’s backyard, a fight that could hamper sales of the iPad 3.

iPad 3: Will Windows 8 Pose Threat to New Apple Tablet?

Apple iPad sales so far have crushed any other tablet thrown against it. Blackberry Playbook is no threat to iPad, even after the Playbook OS 2.0 update. Kindle Fire lacks premium offering. There is no other tablet that has been successful in crushing iPad 2 business, including Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line of tablets. But after MWC 2012, where Microsoft revealed Windows 8 – a universal OS for tablets, laptops and desktops – Windows 8 tablets could pose a serious threat to iPad 3, which is schedule...

Hack Chrome, Get $1 Million from Google

Want to win a million dollars? How about taking up the challenge of hacking Google Chrome. Google is making its voice be heard by awarding a $1 million incentive to persons who are capable of hacking Chrome. Awarding $1 million dollars just for hacking a browser is extreme, but then again, Google Chrome is not just a browser, it is also an OS, so this move by the advertising giant makes sense. Unless Google knows something hackers don’t, the company is setting itself up for a huge blunder, as h...

Google+ a Ghost Town Compared to Facebook, Twitter: Report

Since its release in July last year, Google+ trended as the fastest growing social networking site in 2011. At the time of its debut, Google+ was being considered as a serious business-killer for Facebook and other social networking site. The Circles of Google+ pleased most of Internet users.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview Features Explained: Should You Download Now?

At the Mobile World Congress on Wednesday, Microsoft presented the Windows 8 Consumer Preview amid much fanfare. Unlike the Developer Preview that was released in 2011, this beauty of an OS is more fluid and feels like something that could really work. The Tile-based Metro UI, which was first seen on Windows Phone devices, is at the center of attention here, and probably the main aspect of Windows 8, and a huge part of Microsoft’s future.

It is no secret anymore - Apple has sent out invitations to its March 7 event where the company is expected to announce the iPad 3. But could Apple go one-step further and announce the new Apple TV too? Possibly.

Decoding the iPad 3 Media Invite: What Should we Expect?

Apple sent out media invitations on Tuesday for a special event, which is scheduled to take off on March 7, 2012. It is highly expected that Apple will unveil the iPad 3. But the big question is - what can we expect to see? We are going to try and decode the cryptic media invitation to see if there is anything hidden that we should know about.

iOS Apps May Steal Your Photos in iDevices, Fix Coming Soon

Another iOS security concern, when will it end? New to the scene is a security loophole in the way iOS allows users to share information about their location. An application that implements this feature could grab user photos for the developer’s viewing pleasure. We are not certain how this is happening, but at the moment, that doesn’t matter. What does matter, however, is how fast will Apple release a fix to combat the problem.

Motorola Voice Actions Pitted Against Siri and the Winner is...[VIDEO]

Motorola is out in full force and ready to compete directly with Apple, or better yet, Siri in this matter. Apple released its iPhone 4S smartphone back in Oct. 2011 to much disappointment and fanfare. Despite the phone lacking key features and a decent hardware boost, one little lady came to the rescue to set the iPhone 4S apart from everything else out on the market. Her name is Siri. However, now Motorola is gunning for Siri with videos of its own test, which claims Android Voice Actions is m...
