If Apple was doomed and iPhone didn’t exist, which smartphone platform would you be using? [poll]

I’ve been thinking a lot about iPhone’s impact on the market recently. Some of it was spurred by all the recent talk surrounding Kane’s “Haunted Empire” book, and the pre-disposition the author had towards Apple’s inevitable failure. All in all, it seems to be another “Apple is doomed” article, printed on more pages, with more words, inside a cover….

Meet Tado – Nest Thermostat’s less attractive, but intelligent European alternative – Eyes On [CU Exposed 2014]

Thermostat Here in the UK, or in Europe in general, we don’t have Nest. (Unless you count some of the Spanish natives who import it). For whatever reason, whether it’s because they can’t figure out the EU heating systems or because it’s difficult to re-engineer it, it hasn’t made its way yet. Instead, what we do have may not look like much, but it is…

5 things I want to see in the next iPad

You’ve seen my lists of what I want to see on the next iPhone and in iOS 8, now I turn to the iPad. iPad Air is one of the most exciting products Apple launched last year. Hardware-wise, it perfected what was already a great tablet by making it faster, lighter and thinner. In fact, I liked it so much, I ditched my iPad mini. But it’s not perfect. Here’s…

My 5 favorite Pebble Watchfaces

Since Pebble only gives you space for up to 8 watchfaces and apps, it’s important to find a few favorites and just stick to those. If I could have 20+ installed, I would. But on the plus side, it means I don’t have anything on my Pebble Steel that I don’t really like. Here are the 5 third party watchfaces I’ve loaded on to my smartwatch, and why I like…

5 apps I couldn’t live without – Cam’s choices

Over the next few weeks, each of us here at TiP will be writing up our lists of the most important apps in our lives. To make it challenging I told the guys we’d only be selecting 5 of them. And, believe me, if you were to see the number of apps I’ve downloaded or purchased, you’d see how much of a challenge that is. And to make it harder to cop-out,…

Apple News from Around the Web – CarPlay in pictures, Apple beefing up workforce for product release and more…

Here at TiP, we’re taking a slightly new direction for our written and video content. We’re focusing more on exclusive features, app reviews, accessories, tutorials, opinions and such, while news will be taking a bit of a back seat. But, we know you still want to keep up with it. So, that led me to the decision to – each day – round up the Apple stories…

Brilliant iPhone and iPad Apps and Accessories for LEGO lovers

When LEGO first started shipping plastic bricks in 1949, I’m pretty sure that the company’s chiefs didn’t see a multi-million dollar future involving several movie franchise crossovers, games or a major cinematic release. With the release of The LEGO Movie, I though it would be a perfect time to let out my inner LEGO-lover and share some of my favorite…

ClassicSwitcher tweak gives you the iOS 6 app-switcher back in iOS 7

One of my favorite changes in iOS 7 was the new multitasking app-switcher window. I hated the old method of having a row of redundant app icons at the bottom of my screen in previous versions of iOS. But, if you’re not like me, and you hate the new, prettier app preview cards, you’ll be glad to know you can get the old version back (if you have a…
