Top 5 Most Useful Mobile Device Accessories

5. Tile These little tags work with an app to ensure you don’t lose your oft-misplaced items like keys, wallets, tablets, etc. Tags attach themselves to pretty much anything and the app helps you find lost items with a proximity meter. It also features a way to locate your device with sound, which I think




Scam Alert: AT&T’s “Next” and Verizon’s “Edge” Still Not Addressing Transparency Issue

Good news for phone lovers who want to upgrade every year instead of every two years! AT&T and Verizon have essentially come out with leasing programs called “Next” and “Edge,” respectively. On AT&T’s “Next,” for example, you can have a Galaxy S4 for $27/month installments with no down payment, which comes to $324 for the




Windows 8 Update (8.1) – Features More Metro, Less Desktop

Microsoft wants to steer us away from the familiar Windows 7-style Desktop interface with the Windows 8 update, called Windows 8.1. Details from a leaked video preview, found a couple weeks ago by The Verge, suggest Microsoft plans to do so by improving the Metro interface.* Die-hard Desktop fans, lay down your pitchforks and extinguish




Windows Phone 8 – for iPhone users who want a larger screen

I love Windows Phone 8. It reminded me of when I picked up a 1st generation iPod Touch when it was first released (before iPhone!) and how intuitively easy it was to become familiar with iOS (1.0?). WP8 seems to lean towards users who don’t really care so much about customization and love intuitive functionality. It




Should You Get a Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5?

My quick answer? Galaxy S4. Why? If you’re like me and you use your phone A LOT, a larger screen just makes sense (iPhone has a 4 inch screen whilst the S4′s is 5 inches). I also think some of Android’s standard features along with the S4′s new features could enhance everyday phone use. iOS 6 is stale and




Six Strikes for Illegal Downloading – Not Actually That Bad

Last week, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, Cablevision and AT&T began the implementation of a “six strike system” to counter the illegal downloading/uploading (D/U) of copyrighted materials; namely movies and music. This sounds like a “six strikes and you’re out” kind of deal, but it’s not as dire as that. This




Your Windows PC Is A Compulsive Hoarder – 2 Super Quick Tips To Cure It

Your computer is a compulsive hoarder and its house looks like this: All those boxes in the picture represent a bunch of files and folders (which we’ll call “crap” from now on) that you never see or use and that your computer never uses either. But for one demented reason or the other, your computer




3 New iPhones This Year? Maybe…

Apple may release three phones this year, and it makes sense. This trifecta includes a new iPhone 5S, which is about 99% certain. I’ve also been drowning in rumors about an iPhone with a larger screen than the 5 called the “iPhone Plus” along with a plastic iPhone that will come in iPod colors. Many




More iOS 7 Leaks and Rumors Wanted!

Most of the iRumor Mill concerns itself with what components and new looks the next iPhone will don. These days, however, I am more concerned with what the new iOS has in store. The reason for this is that Apple has already figured ou the iPhone’s form. Whether it be conscious or subconscious, it’s really iOS




Leap Motion Controller – Designed for Windows 8 Without Even Knowing It

These days, at least for technology, the term “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” doesn’t really seem to apply. Sure, the mouse is pretty old, but by no means is it broken, nor is it inefficient. But hey, it’s the future! Let’s do something we’ve always done but in a different, cooler and more
