The company just posted its new ‘Holiday’ ad on YouTube, and it carries on the theme that comes along with the holiday season. In the ad, a teenager is shown giving his gift…

Mailbox app gets iCloud and Yahoo account support, finally!

For most of this past year, I’ve switched between different email clients for my iPhone. I’ve tried Mailbox, Boxer, Mail Pilot, Hop, Inredimail, Evomail and – of course – the default iOS 7 Mail.app. In all that time, I’ve never managed to settle on one. They all have their benefits, but, in terms of the user interface and feature list, Mailbox was…

iCarbons Skin for iPad Air, the perfect skin? [Review]

When it comes to skins for tech, few companies have the reputation of iCarbons. They’re well-renowned for their carbon-fiber mimicking protective vinyls, and for good reason. They’re fantastic.

Apple’s headquarters replicated in stunning detail on Minecraft

I’ve never been that interested in Minecraft. The iOS app may have been this year’s top-seller on the App Store, but, when I game, I enjoy racing or sports games. The idea of painstakingly sitting for hours and hours working on a town, building or city fills me with dread. And that’s precisely why I’m filled with awe when checking out the Minecraft-made…

Each year, Apple rounds up its favorite apps, games, music and video from the past 12 months.

We’re fast moving towards a more globalized future. When it comes to products, food and other industries, it’s here already. But with mobile telecommunications, it’s lagging behind.
