iPhone 6C?

Apple has officially announced their official 'lightning connector dock' a couple days ago which for some reason has taken them many months to release. People who were excited headed straight to Apple's website to order one and noticed a strange picture for the 'lightning connector dock' which had a iPhone 5C-ish looking device sitting on the dock. The original iPhone 5C hasn't been updated in 19 months and didn't feature a lighting connector so it has now got people talking about how there just might be a new iPhone 6C coming out. The rumors of a iPhone 6C have been around for a while but due to the fact that nothing has come from Apple and the original 5C didn't sell all that well most thought the 'C' line of phone was probably dead. Only time will tell if this is legitimate or not. TechRadar has the story.

The fact that Apple announced an official Lightning dock a couple of days ago wasn't particularly exciting, but the renderings illustrating it may have revealed more than the Cupertino company wanted to give away.

Until Apple spotted the slip, clicking all the way through to the last picture illustrating the dock brought up what looked like an iPhone 5C - only it has a Touch ID button without the square markings in the middle.

12-Inch iPad

It is looking like iPad and Apple users might be getting another option in the iPad lineup with the addition of a new 12-inch iPad model. No timeframe for release has been announced yet but Apple is hoping that it will help increase iPad sales once again. This will be a great addition to the iPad lineup and will offer users a size that no one else does (other than Samsung, Asus, Microsoft, HP, Lenovo, Gigabyte, Dell, and many others). 9to5Mac has the details over here.

Facing slowing growth for the first time since the iPad’s 2010 debut, Apple is working on several significant software and hardware updates to reinvigorate the tablet over the next year. Apple is developing a dual-app viewing mode, 12-inch iPads codenamed “J98″ and “J99,” as well as support for multi-user logins, according to sources briefed on the plans. First planned for debut last year, the split-screen applications feature for the iPad could be introduced as soon as June at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, while multi-user login support and the 12-inch iPads will apparently arrive later…

YotaPhone 2 on IndieGoGo

YotoPhone is a Russian company that announced a dual-screen phone a few years back and they refreshed their first clunky with the YotoPhone 2 that we saw this past CES. Now they are trying to bring this phone to the North American market by way of an IndieGoGo campaign. They also play to bring it to different carriers as well, but this all takes time. If you want to pre-order one of these, make sure you check it out at the link below.

The YotaPhone2 EPD is yours to customize. With the full-touch EPD display you can create multiple dashboards with widgets for Email, Fitness, Music, Calendar, Stocks, Twitter or display photos from your Gallery or Social Media feeds. With YotaPhone 2 everything you need is just a glance away.

Spotify Expands to More Than Music

It appears that Spotify is trying to stay relevant and has expanded their offering to more than just music. They've recently added video content as well as podcasts to the mix. The new video capsule will be offering video from Comedy Central, the TWiT netwok and more. It's a bold move that should keep users subscribed as people demand more than just music streaming.

Spotify's expansion comes as the company is facing more competition than ever before as it attempts to maintain its position atop the subscription music business. Jay Z's Tidal is trying to lure in mainstream consumers with exclusive music videos and live-streaming concerts. In many ways, the company has made exclusive content an even greater focus than its lossless, CD-quality audio tier that subscribers can get by paying $19.99 per month.

Propane Rifle is Awesome

The best thing about this propane rifle is that you probably have everything at home right now to build one. I'm not saying you should, and please obey all local laws.

 

GM Says that You are Licensing Cars

In addition to a bunch of recalls in the past year, GM is stepping up their goal of pissing of customers by claiming that you don't own the software in the car that you just paid $50,000 for. That's right, you own a very limited license to use that software, but at any time GM can pull, change or actually remove said software at their discretion, and if you tamper with it - you are in DMCA violation. 

"You're putting that burden on buyers of many, many used cars to have that software system completely evaluated," she said. "To me, I don't know, that's a troubling prospect that in an ordinary used-car transaction you have to be worried about whether there's been a software modification."

Microsoft Launches Office Preview for Android

If you're an Android user and you want to get productive with your device every now and then, you'll be happy to know that the Office for Android preview has been extended as a general release. I've been using it off and on for a few months and it seems pretty solid. If you can't live without office, this may be one of the best news bits this week. Grab the previews over at Microsoft's Google+ community.

For the most part, it looks like the Android tablet version. There's finger-friendly versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that let you create, open, and edit office documents. Best of all, the suite is free! Saving is all done in the cloud, and the announcement notes that "OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box" are all available.

AMD Unveils New Memory Tech

A few days back we posted about how AMD was not content to be a mainstream company any more and wanted to return to the high-performance arena. One way that they are doing this is through their HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) technology that replaces the existing 32-bit memory bus with a 1024-bit bus that allows a whole lot more traffic down the pipeline. This looks promising and I'm sure that Intel will soon follow suite with some similar idea of their own.

HBM is a departure from what we have seen in the past where memories have been pushed to be "faster." This HBM approach is simple in that it is a "wide and slow" solution that will produce great benefits. Gone is the old 32 bit bus, and it is replaced by a 1024 bit bus. The "slow" part of the trade off is that these HBM stacks will not run at clocks faster than 500MHz, but obviously, with such a wider bus, we should see bandwidth of over 100GB/s per stack. Also these stacks of memory run at lower power as well.

LG's New TVs Mount on your Wall with Magnets

On the way to make TVs so thin and flexible that they ship in a poster-tube (my prediction), LG has a new OLED TV that is designed to mount on your wall with a couple of magnets. This new display is ridiculously thin and absolutely spectacular in terms of image quality. Of course the price will be unbelievably high at first, but this is the way the market is going - and I like it a lot.

The company has unveiled a 55-inch OLED screen that's so thin and light (0.04 inches and 4.2 pounds) that you can put it on your wall using a magnetic mat. The design doesn't exactly leave room for much else -- you'd probably need a breakout box for TV functions -- but it raises the possibility of big-screen sets that easily blend into your living room's decor.

Windows 10 Will NOT be Free After a Year

Microsoft has just confirmed that Windows 10 will not be free after the first year. This is pretty cool for those users that manage to make the upgrade early but if you procrastinate you'll be left out in the cold - at least left a few dollars less. There is no word on what the post-promotion pricing will be, but we are hoping for something affordable at least. I think Microsoft is going to have to be very competitive with their pricing model if they want users to make the switch to a new unified platform.

Microsoft has always said that the upgrade offer will only be for one year but we can't recall them explicitly saying that after one year that the upgrade will no longer be free until this post was created. Naturally, this means if you want Windows 10 for free, you will need to upgrade within the first year and that the offer will not be extended.
