If you take a ride on any subway, sit in a Starbucks coffee shop or just, simply, roam around most places, you’ll be sure to see folk completely transfixed to their smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and gadgetry in general. The Digital Age has a firm grip on most of us, and if you’re reading this article, there’s a good chance that it’s caught you too, but while most of us are – admittedly or in denial – smartphone-addicted, one iPhone 7 parody ad imagines a world in which we’re literally controlled by our devices.

The Olloclip is a famous and much-revered mobile accessory that can be clipped onto a smartphone’s camera and offer all manner of great new lenses. From fish-eye to macro shots, the Olloclip has long broadened the horizons of point-and-shoot photographers, and while the company behind it has sought to cater to high-end Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 in recent times, its core following is with those rocking the Apple iPhone. With this in mind, today’s announcement of the OlloCase – a protective cover that plays nicely with the Olloclip lens systems – is an iPhone 6 / 6 Plus exclusive, and if you are an Olloclip user, you’ll catch all the details below.

But if the two-for-one feature-set is not enough, an interesting new battery case for the iPhone 6 adds a third quirk by delivering waterproofing capabilities.

Samsung has, on more than one occasion, landed itself in hot water for copying the designs of rival Apple, and in the last couple of days, Sammy has been roundly mocked for its new, Apple-esque advertisement. As if the laughing and pointing at Sammy’s copycat nature wasn’t enough, one clip mocks the Korean company further by introducing the Galaxy S6 Edge using voice-over work from none other than Apple’s hardware and software design lead Jony Ive, and the end result is rather amusing to say the least.

Samsung may be considered among the mobile industry’s elite, but its bread-and-butter expertise lies in the field of displays. Samsung’s television range is expansive, to say the least, and the Korean outfit has been integral in the pushing the technology further than ever before in recent years. Today, the company has introduced a new add-on for older smart TVs that, as well as pushing the Tizen OS, gives these slightly-aged panels a welcome hardware upgrade.

Microsoft’s Windows 10 is eagerly anticipated for a number of reasons, and while there’s a sense that the software giant has something to prove after Windows 8, the Office maker is going above and beyond the call of duty. Allied to the broad spectrum of features and products arriving this year from Microsoft, it has now been revealed that Windows 10’s emoji selection includes a middle finger, complete with a variety of skin tones that let you say “go away” in perhaps the simplest and most effective manner.

It only took a couple of hours for delivery dates to begin pushing back on Apple Watch pre-order day, and while the company’s supply chain will eventually meet with demand, the time is certainly not now. Orders of the more sizable 42mm versions of the Apple Watch Sport and stainless steel Apple Watch are now being hit with estimated delivery dates of July, and given that we’ve only just ticked over for May, that’s quite a length of time to wait on arrival.

One of the cooler features of Apple Watch is its heart-rate sensor, which is integral to the health and fitness-related attributes of the Cupertino company’s new wearable. Earlier this week, it emerged that arm tattoos were causing erratic / inaccurate readings, since the feature uses light reflected on the skin to generate its data, and Apple has since updated its support documents to confirm the issue.

Watching a prized gadget like the Apple Watch being casually destroyed might cause palpitations for those of a nervous geeky disposition, but I do think there’s a natural human intrigue in destruction, which makes a video of the Apple Watch acquainting itself with liquid nitrogen a very appealing prospect. Add to that a side dish of hydrogen explosion, and you’ve surely got a feast of tech annihilation, right? Find out after the break.

The talk of a larger, so-called ‘iPad Pro’ has remained incessant for a number of months now, and along with a fourth-gen Apple TV, is rumored to be arriving at some point this year. With a display size said to be larger than that of the new 12-inch MacBook Air, it would comfortably dwarf the 9.7-inch panel of the iPad Air 2, but while the rumor mill continues to churn out new information, there’s still very little by way of concrete evidence. A new video looks at two purported iPad Pro cases up against the iPad Air 2, offering a gauge on its size in comparison to the current flagship, and if you’ve been keeping an eye out for Apple’s more sizeable slate, you can catch the clip along with further details below.
