iPhone 6 vs Nexus 4

Obviously the iPhone 6 launch has been dominating the news this week and iPhone fans are looking forward to their next upgrade. In typical fashion, Android fans are pointing out that some of the new features that iPhone 6 users can look forward to are already available on Android and have come up with a chart comparing the iPhone 6 to the Android Nexus 4 and there are a few similarities. The biggest point Android users are bringing up is that the Nexus 4 is already 2 years old so the phrase "If you need help with your iPhone 6's new features, just ask an Android users, we've had this stuff for years" has become popular amongst Android fanboys that are enjoying poking fun at Apple fanboys and keeping the Android vs Apple back and forth going. HuffingtonPost has the details.



Shape-Shifting Liquid Metal is Here

Here's another one from the Sci-Fi file. Remember back when Terminator movies were putting the fear of technology in our hearts and the most scary thing of all was the liquid metal Terminator? Yeah, Metal can do that now. Great. Just great.

 

iPhone 6 Plus Teardown

I'm the kind of person who wants to see what's on the inside of things and luckily with the iPhone 6 Plus we didn't have to wait long for someone to tear one apart so we could take a peek inside. Most everything is pretty standard and what everyone expected, other than only 1GB of RAM could be found inside (Apple doesn't disclose how much memory they include in their phones). Head on over to iFixit for some great pictures of whats inside your iPhone 6 Plus.

Over the years, we've seen the iPhone evolve—and grow. It began as just the iPhone. Soon it learned how to 3G, it gained an S (it would lose and gain this every other year), and it even learned to read fingerprints. Years of hard work and dedication have made the iPhone into what it is today, the iPhone 6 Plus. Join us live as we explore this gargantuan iPhone 6 Plus.

Windows 9 Technical Preview in October

If you've been waiting to get your hands on the latest preview of Windows 9, you'll have to wait until October. We were hoping to get it in late September, but we'll have to be a bit more patient. I'm certainly optimistic about this next version for the Desktop use. I will be trying this out as a preview as I have not a lot of love for Windows 8.

Additionally, something we may have seen in previous screenshots but haven't really touched upon is the new location for File Explorer, which now becomes "Home" rather than "This PC". There, not only library folders and drives are shown, but everything relevant to you, such as recent or frequent files, folders, favorites, drives and so on.

Miiverse for PC and Smartphones

One thing that seems to be a somewhat decent feature with the WiiU is Miiverse. It is social network for the WiiU community, that will be expanding to smartphones and web-browsers soon. The release date is supposed to be sometime in April or May. It should be interesting to see if it will be a hit or just another attempt by Nintendo to do something out of the ordinary. Read more about it at the links provided below.

"Miiverse will be key part of the Wii U console and will be available at launch. The social network will connect players who have Mii profiles on the same system, and connect players from around the world via the Nintendo Network. Miiverse will be free to use for all Wii U players and won’t carry a price nor a subscription plan. Miiverse is based on web-browser technologies, which means it will be accessible from any browser enabled device in the world, including phones, tablets, and more.  To be a tad more specific, Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki stated that the app would be available in April or May, though a firm date has yet to be pinned down."
