If you’ve a concert-goer, then you’re no doubt already acutely aware of one problem that has cropped up over the last ten years or so. In fact, we’d say it’s only really come to our attention since the iPhone arrived in 2007.

Getting apps for free is all well and good, but they’re usually either full of in-app purchases or just not very good. What’s really great is when a paid-for app goes free for a limited time, because not only do users get apps for free, but the developers also get some added publicity as well as the chance to get a healthy bump up those all-important Apple App Store rankings.

Fancy projectors can run into the zone of thousands of dollars, especially if they’re either made for movie watching or some sort of educational role that requires them to function similar to a touch-screen. It’s the latter that we’re most interested in here, because TouchJet’s TouchPico projector may be about to offer something many could find a real use for, at a fraction of the price of existing solutions.

When Apple recently announced its latest financial results, there was little to get too excited about. Big sales are a given these days for Apple, but with new products not expected for another month or two, the analysts that like to make so much noise just haven’t had too much to feed on, making this particular call even more boring than usual.

When it was announced that Intel was giving its Haswell line of CPUs a speed bump very recently, the smart money immediately went on those chips finding their way into Apple’s MacBook Pro and, if this leaked photograph is to be believed, that’s exactly what is going to happen.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.1 has taken the platform to new heights thanks to a range of improvements over previous versions, but the software giant isn’t ready to call it a day just yet. Already working on the next update to Windows Phone, dubbed as GDR1, and expected to release it soon, here are the upcoming features that consumers and phone makers can expect to begin shipping on new devices.

There’s a certain voyeurism that goes along with sharing screenshots of home screens. In fact, we’re as guilty as anyone in that regard after our post yesterday which showed the home screens of the RP team’s phones. That post proved as popular as we knew it would, and there are even web sites that are aimed at sharing what tech celebrities have on their home screens, and we love them as much as everyone else.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone is still playing catch-up with the competition, but it does have some benefits that even iOS and Android can’t quite manage to put together. Windows Phone’s Joe Belfiore has tweeted about one new feature that is on its way to Windows Phone and that can now be added to any Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone via a downloadable app.

There’s a new service in town that hopes to make our hotel room-buying experience a more informed affair, especially if functional Wi-Fi is high on your list of priorities.

Destiny, the new game by the people behind Halo, Bungie, is currently in the midst of a public beta. The early version that is currently playable lets gamers create their own character and then go on some multiplayer killing sprees against not just computer-controlled AI, but also other gamers. Until now, the beta has been of the closed variety but now it’s open to just about anyone, so no invite code is required.

As time chugs along and we get ever nearer to the expected September announcement and, hopefully, release of at least one new iPhone, the leaks are still gathering quite the pace. With Apple believed to be working on not just one new iPhone, but two, all the leaks so far have been based on the smaller 4.7-inch device on Apple’s roadmap. Its 5.5-inch brother has been surprisingly absent in the leak stakes, which has led many to the conclusion that it will launch some time after the smaller variant.

We’re as eager to get our hands on a watch made by Apple as anyone else, but it seems that some are just a little too eager for their own good after a new Jimmy Kimmel Live spot took to the streets in order to see if it could fool people into thinking they were being shown the as-yet unannounced iWatch.

We’ll readily admit to not being the most stylish group of people around, but if you don’t suffer from the same inability to dress yourself properly and also happen to like your music, then you’re going to want to check out this rather cool hoodie.

Gaming doesn’t get more mobile than the folks at Gameloft. The company has been making mobile games for what seems like forever, and with the arrival of high-end smartphones and tablets, it has become the go-to place for highly realistic, highly fun games.

As the iPhone 6′s announcement and release are drawing closer by the day, rumors have very much centered around screen sizes and the hardware that will encase Apple’s bespoke internals. Today though, the aptly named ‘The Information’ has published a report that brings the news back to a story that simply will not die.

They say that time stands still for no-one, and at this time of year we’re pretty sure that most Apple engineers would agree wholeheartedly. As we slip ever nearer the expected September release date for the iPhone 6, the leaks are beginning to gather a pace that those in Cupertino simply can’t hope to outrun.

Apple has launched a new ad for its ever-popular MacBook Air, but it’s not quite like the ads that came before it.

Apple hasn’t even managed to get the iPhone 6 out the door yet, but Samsung has already begun poking fun at not just the phone, but those lining up to buy one, too.

With its MacBook Pro lineup tightly tied to Intel’s chip release schedule, Apple will be pleased to learn that the chip maker has launched an update to its Haswell line of CPUs.

The voice-to-text dictation in iOS has always been one of those features that people either use extensively, or have never even noticed. Those that do make heavy use of dictation have long had one main complaint though, and that’s been about the way their voice is converted to text.
