If you’ve bought an iPhone 5 SIM-free and you want to take advantage of EE’s 4G network, you’ll be glad to know that the company has just announced its SIM-only plans. Sadly, it doesn’t look like there are any 30-day options as all the plans are 12-month contracts. Plans start from £21 per month for 500MB of data and go up in increments of £5 per…

HTC CEO denies “outrageous” $6-$8 per device licensing fee

Last week, it was confirmed by Apple that itself and HTC had reached a settlement in regards to the global lawsuits between the two companies.

Nokia releases “HERE” maps for iOS, is it a Maps replacement?

Ever since iOS 6 came along with its newly designed Maps app, Apple has come under a lot of stick for gaps in data, wrong locations and awful satellite images. Since then, people have been trying to find good alternatives. And, although my experiences with Maps in iOS 6 have generally been fantastic (especially with Navigation), I am aware that it’s not…

Apple selling refurbished products on eBay?

If a recent report is correct, Apple is secretly running its own shop on eBay in order to sell its refurbished products. 9to5Mac has been monitoring this page, and contacted eBay for more information. eBay alluded that the page is “a low profile Apple test site that could open to much bigger things”. It seems suspicious that anyone other than Apple…

Good riddance! OpenFeint is shutting down.

If you remember, in the early days of iOS gaming, a social gaming platform names OpenFeint would pop up in various games with its huge green “Enable OpenFeint” right next to the ridiculous and irritating “I don’t want these awesome features” option. And – as you can tell by my tone in the title of this article – I was less than keen on it. Firstly, it…

But, as we heard from one expert in market trends, historically, big dips in AAPL stock value are normally followed by huge growth. Today’s growth in the market just goes to show how temperamental it can be. Apple’s stock grew by 7.21% – in one day. Essentially,…

The Esiena iF360BT by Edifier is one stylish and great sounding all-in-one audio solution [Review]

I have to be 100% honest here, I’d never heard of Edifier until its PR representatives got in touch about me reviewing some of its products. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. But, when I saw the £200 ($300)+ price point for the Esiena Bluetooth enabled all-in-one iF360BT speaker dock/HiFi, I wasn’t expecting cheap and shoddy. Still, the brand is…

If you thought you’d seen all the possible variations on Angry Birds merchandise, you thought wrong. Primesmith has created a series of charms that can be worn on bracelets or necklaces. The charms themselves are made of Sterling silver and are designed to look like all the most popular Angry Birds characters. Sadly, no Star Wars ones yet. Cost ranges…
