After being rumored for quite some time, Apple has recently sent out invites for an upcoming special event set to go down on October 27 at 10AM PST. As usual for Apple, the invite itself is cryptically titled “hello again” which appears to be a reference to the original Mac which launched with the word “hello” on its screen.
Apple is expected to reveal an entire host of new Mac products as a lack of innovation in the area has caused Apple PC shipment declines of over 13% in 3Q2016. Chief among the expected new products is a complete redesign of the 13.3″ and 15.3″ MacBook Pro which hasn’t seen changes in over 4 [...]
It hasn’t even been a minute since the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus launched and rumors of what kind of technology the next iPhone may have is already hitting the interwebs.

Apple is reportedly already in talks with Sharp to secure OLED displays and an agreement may come depending on Sharp’s production capabilities. Sharp recently announced that they’ll invest an additional 57.4 billion Yen, or approximately $566 million USD into the development and manufacture of OLED displays and expects the new facilities to [...]
Sometimes… you just feel the urge to walk into an Apple store and just smash some iPhones. With a petanque ball, of course.
Case in point. A viral video has been circulating on the interwebs of a guy who literally walked into an Apple store in Dijon, France and started smashing every iPhone he could came across. Every. Single. One. Like a freaking boss. We counted at least 12 iPhones smashed in addition to a MacBook of some sort.
The reason for this assault? Apparently Apple refused to offer him a refund and he claims that Apple has violated his rights as a consumer. Violence solves everything, right kids?
What do you think? Let us know [...]
In a new report from the WSJ, Apple is planning to build a new $45 million research facility in Beijing, China’s new science park in the city’s Wangjing area. The new research facility, which will be Apple’s first in the country, will focus primarily on the development of hardware.
According to the state owned Zhongguancun Science Park Administrative Committee, the new research facility will help boost the Chinese economy and help Apple better compete against Chinese phone makers who have significantly reduced Apple’s dominating smartphone marketshare in recent years. The new research facility is expected to employ 500 [...]

Last month, we heard rumblings in the industry that Apple may be launching a complete redesign of the MacBook Pro for the first time in 4 years. Since then we haven’t heard much about the rumored notebook launch despite Apple launching the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus earlier this month.
That said, in a recent interview by Forbes, Director of Tablet and Notebook PCs at IHS Market Technology, Rhonda Alexander believes that not only will a there be a refresh of the 13.3″ and 15.3″ MacBook Pro, but the 13.3″ MacBook Air will be refreshed as well. According to Alexander, production of these laptops already started in calendar 2Q2016 and the products are [...]
Bloomberg recently reported that Apple may be completely redesigning the MacBook Pro for the first time in 4 years.
According to Bloomberg sources familiar with the matter, the new MacBook Pro will be thinner, include a new touch screen strip for function keys, USB Type-C ports, fingerprint scanner, and a more powerful graphics card likely based on AMD’s latest Polaris GPU. Apple is redesigning their MacBook Pros at a time when iPad and iPhone sales are down as consumers are waiting longer to upgrade devices.
Apple is also expected launching their new Mac OS Sierra operating system this fall, which may coincide with the MacBook Pro launch. The [...]
Several years ago, Razer developed and adopted their own mechanical keyboard switches for their mechanical keyboard lineup. While Razer switches gave Razer far more control over their product and likely helped reduce costs in the process, Razer’s switches still largely imitated the designs of Cherry MX switches and aside from the switches being called Razer switches, it didn’t offer much benefit for the consumer.
Capitalizing on their switch development experience however, Razer recently introduced their new ultra-low profile switch which is designed to carry the same click and tactile feel of a Razer Green switch, but comes in [...]
According to a new proposal in Belgium, Apple may have to stop blocking 4G on certain carriers in the country. The new proposal, recently approved by the Belgium Council of Ministers, requires phone makers to allow their phones to work on all “suitable” 4G networks, not just on “preferred” carriers. Despite this new proposal applying to all phone makers in general, it’s targeted at Apple who currently only allows the use of 4G on the Mobistar network.
While Apple giving exclusivity to certain companies isn’t a new thing, the problem lies in the fact that Mobistar doesn’t actually have a working 4G network. Other networks such [...]
