The HTC One (M8) could pull me away from my iPhone

First, I think I should start off this article with a disclaimer. Despite what you may think, since I do write for an Apple-centric website, and I do own an iPhone 5, I would not consider myself an Apple fanboy (although some on Twitter would disagree with this statement). In fact, prior to my iPhone 5, I was an Android user for a few years. However, I…

Apple to raise App Store prices in 7 selected regions

Price rises in terms of anything isn’t something that’s usually welcomed by consumers – in fact, it’s not. But what can you exactly do when it’s a major player in the field of technology like Apple who’s announced such plans? Nothing.

Monday Moan – When will Siri justify its existence?

Siri is far from useless. It’s very useful. I can use it to open any app, call anyone on my contacts list, navigate to a location, book a table, check stats, do some quick sums and much much more. But it’s hardly vital. In fact, if it wasn’t there, I don’t think I’d notice and that mostly to do with the way it’s been implemented. If Apple wants us to…
