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.

Pepcom Highlights from CES 2014

We stopped by Pepcom this year and saw a few nifty things from Piston, drooled over the Lenovo 4K display and checked out a "fair" way to cheat at gaming. The Red Dot is not a cheat - it's just a fancy way to hipfire accurately - and it's awesome. Check it out!

Android App Pick - Sea Battle

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are marching ever closer to our 3rd year of Android App Pick. As we count down to the magical number, we take some time to play a twist on a classic board game. Sea Battle is a lot like Battleship from days gone by, and it's even more fun. Take a look and find out how nukes play into this awesome game!

Enjoy!

Hands on with Windows 10

Microsoft bucked the trend and decided to count in a new modern way and skip Windows 9 altogether. I'm not exactly sure why they wouldn't go from Windows 7, Windows 8 and then to Windows 9, but Windows 10 is now announced officially. I think this is mostly to appease the Germans. Either way, there is a lot of details that are now public today and if you want to see what it looks like in action - there are some official screenshots at the link below.

Microsoft is launching Windows 10 as the new face of both Windows and eventually Windows Phone. At one point during Microsoft’s Tuesday press event, Terry Myerson, the executive vice president in charge of Microsoft’s OS group, called the new OS “our most open, collaborative OS project ever.” Collaborative, indeed. Microsoft is looking for user feedback, and what I demo'd on Tuesday may not be the same OS that customers receive next year.

Dropbox: Not Hacked, but Exploited and Deleting Your Data

Dropbox didn't have much to be thankful for this past long weekend here in Canada. Not only were rumors floating around that they were hacked, the also had a bug sweep through their system that caused some of their users data to be permanently deleted. This was a very bad weekend. Thankfully, they weren't hacked. Unfortunately, a third-party exploit caused thousands of their users logins to be accessed and a good number of them were published online.

Dropbox has confirmed that a bug in some older versions of its desktop apps deleted the files of some people who turned on Selective Sync, which limits cloud syncing to certain folders. Typically, this would happen after a crash or forced reboot, making a bad problem worse -- at least a few users found that they'd lost years' worth of content through no fault of their own.
