Flappy Bird making $50k a day from ads

If you’ve ever played Flappy Bird you know that the game is a very simple concept, yet can be the most frustrating game you’ve ever played in your life.

iPhone 5c and 5s among the best for usable internal storage

Which? in the UK has compiled a list of the top smartphones available, and measured them against each other using a metric we – as tech heads – often forget to consider. When it comes to comparing specs, we’re happy to reel off that a certain device has an 8GB, 16GB or 32GB storage capacity, but that doesn’t translate to real-world use. Inevitably, phones…

Apple’s iPhone adverts are iconic, recognizable and normally emotion-driven. This advert, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. I have no idea what it was filmed on, but I’m pretty sure there are no trained actors, lighting technicians or camera operators involved in any way.

Report: Almost half of iPhone 5c sales are former Android users

A new report coming from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech has some interesting information in it; apparently, almost half of iPhone 5c sales are going to former Android users. Most of these switchers, according to the report, are coming from Samsung and LG, something Apple is most likely very happy to know. The other new device doesn’t have as much of an appeal…
