iPhone 5 Hands-on

If you have been waiting for the next generation of iPhone your wait is almost over. September 20th is the day both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C start to ship. Engadget has some hands-on time with the iPhone 5S and shares their thoughts over here.

As you may have already heard, the 5s is rather similar in overall hardware to the iPhone 5, though there are a few changes in key places. As you can see in the above image, it's available in three colors: space grey (which has black highlights on top and bottom), white and -- as rumored so many times -- gold.

Luxa2 @ CES 2014

We took at a look at some of the mobile products from Luxa2 and saw that they have embraced Qi wireless charging in ways that we wish other companies would. They have a few really nifty products and you can check them out in our CES 2014 coverage!

Monoprice at CES 2015 - More than just cables

CES 2015 continues to roll on and today we had the chance to stop by and see the folks at Monoprice and some of their new products they've introduced for the upcoming year. Monoprice was at one time best know for their cables and accessories, but they've continued to add new products, lots and lots of new products. Monoprice was proudly showing off their new 28" 60Hz 4K monitor. There have been a good number of 4k monitors hitting the market in recent months, however, Monoprice is offering theirs for $499 USD which is going to be tough to beat.

In addition to Monoprice's new 28" 4K monitor, they were also showing off their 30" 2560x1440 which retails for about the same money. This panel has higher quality color reproduction which justifies the higher price-per-pixel.

WhatsApp to remain closed

People have been hoping for quite some time that WhatsApp (which is now owned by Facebook) would be opening up for 3rd party App developers, however, after the F8 developer conference that appears to not be happening anytime soon. WhatsApp wants to control 'user experience' and they don't want anyone else messing it up for them. Developers are obviously upset at not being able to piggyback on WhatsApp but I don't think anyone can be too surprised at their decision to keep things closed. CNET has the story.

What does $19 billion buy you? Sometimes, it's a spot of trouble.

That's what Facebook found out at its F8 developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday when executives tried to explain to an eager crowd of app developers why it wasn't going to offer a way for them to plug their programs and services into the 700-million-user-strong messaging service WhatsApp.

Microsoft Unveils Surface 3 - Full Windows for $500

There were rumors that Microsoft was done with the "non-Pro" Surface Tablet line and they were kind of right. Gone is Windows RT, but instead of a crippled OS, Microsoft is bringing full-on Windows 8.1 to the Surface by replacing the ARM processor with a new Intel Atom. The specs are pretty solid with a full 1080p screen powered by the new X7-Z8700 (Cherry Trail) processor. It even supports Pen input if you're into that sort of thing. It looks pretty as well as pretty solid.

With a starting price of $499, Microsoft is making a play for the entry level consumer who wants a high quality machine. Seeing as the device features that same build quality as the Pro 3, it should be a competent machine for the price. But, as with every Surface, this device does not come with a Type cover nor does the Surface 3 include a pen.
