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.


App Pick of the Week - Minecraft Pocket Edition

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we join the Minecraft mayhem with Minecraft Pocket Edition. While this app will set you back a few dollars, it's probably the least expensive version of Minecraft on the market and it's also the best. You can craft or mine anywhere - at any time. Take a look and see what makes it great!



Google working on Apple Pay competitor

I guess you could file this next story under the "of course they are" section. 

Google is reportedly working on an Apple Pay competitor that would use the NFC function on Android devices to let you pay for your purchases much like Apple Pay. Google is calling their system "Plasco" and from the little information available sounds a little bit like Google Wallet 2.0. This really isn't surprising that Google wants in on this market as much like Apple Pay, whoever provides the payment method gets to take a cut of the total price tag which could make huge profits if your system becomes the payment system of choice. Tom's Guide has a few more details and I'd bet we will probably be seeing much more about this in the near future.

Who needs to tap your phone to a checkout terminal when you can simply say your initials. Sure the iPhone 6 has Apple Pay's tap to pay, but Android is getting Plaso. According to a new report, Google has begun testing this new mobile payments system to rival Apple's NFC-based Apple Pay platform.
