Learning to play the piano properly has never been something that most of us can just walk into cold, but there are techniques that can be used in order to try and make the learning process as easy as possible. Georgia Tech, for example, created some gloves which vibrate in order to help people learn how to play. Ingenious stuff.

It’s a rumor that crops up every year and has Apple supposedly bringing NFC support to whatever iPhone it is working on at the time. This year has been no different, but with perhaps a little more to it this time around. If you’ve been hopeful of an NFC equipped iPhone in the past, then you may be in luck.

If you’re carrying around an iOS device and have even a passing interest in video or the phenomenon that is Instagram then you’ll probably want to check out its latest app if you haven’t already. Called Hyperlapse, the iOS-only app can record time-lapse video that’s ridiculously stable and looks, in all honesty, absolutely terrific.

A Chinese smartphone repair firm has leaked what appears to be the two new True Tone flash units that Apple will use on both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models.

LG is set to announce a new smartwatch at IFA next week, just a handful of months after it brought the LG G Watch to market amidst Google’s own Android Wear fanfare.

Yes, the iPhone 6′s rumored announcement is only a couple of weeks away right now, and we’ve seen more leaks for this iPhone than most, but that doesn’t mean that we know exactly what is on the cards for when Apple takes the covers off the next iPhone.

We’d like to think that most people who use Google’s services are fully aware that the technology giant is monitoring their every move. Literally. But it’s clear that the great unwashed masses have no idea that their Android phones are tracking their location as they go about their business and, if you have Google Now installed on an iPhone, that’s probably doing the same too.

We’re all tech lovers at heart here, and given the fact that you’re reading this then we’re going to go out on a limb and assume you are, too. That assumption means that you’re probably guilty of buying and selling your fair share of smartphones too, just like the rest of us.

If you’ve ever wanted to make you Mac sleep remotely, and with the touch of just one button on an iPhone or an iPad, then you’re going to want to read this handy little tip.

Getting files onto iOS devices isn’t always the easiest thing in the world, but apps like GoodReader do make it possible. The key to making a good downloader app is to make sure that it can also view the most popular file types that people are likely to be downloading, otherwise you’re just going to be stuck with files that you can’t do anything with.

If there’s one thing that’s bound to get hardware aficionados excited, it’s screen resolutions. More than just sheer numbers, screen resolutions determine how sharp text looks on our displays, and how well those photographs of your kids pop when zoomed right in. Screen resolution is the kind of thing you don’t really notice until you use a smartphone with a resolution that’s a little lacking.

In the world of hardware virtualization, Parallels is arguably the biggest player on the Mac. Being able to use a Mac computer full time but still dabble in Windows when needed can be a pretty powerful thing, especially if you develop apps for Microsoft’s platform, or just need to use an app that doesn’t yet have a Mac version. As much as Apple wouldn’t like to admit it, sometimes you just need to use Windows for some things.

With Apple expected to announce the iPhone 6 within a matter of weeks it’s obvious that the final hardware is locked in and that the phone is currently in the same configuration as the handsets we’ll be picking up at stores towards the end of September. We’ve seen plenty of leaks surrounding both the front and rear panels of the iPhone 6, as well as various different parts of its innards, so there’s little to truly come as a surprise this time around.

When we told you about Apple’s rumored reversible USB Lightning cable, plenty of people were rather excited at the idea. With good reason too, because we’ve all had that brain-melting moment when we have tried to plug a USB cable in only for it to inevitably be the wrong way around. It’s a fact of life that nobody can plug a USB cable in the right way first time, and we’ve known it take three goes before people have managed it – and there are only two orientations to choose from!

When you carry something around that’s likely to spontaneously combust then you usually get a little hazard pay, but it’s becoming increasingly possible that many of us are doing it without even realizing it, after yet another iPhone was found alight, apparently of its own volition.

If you’ve even had a passing interest in the build up to any iPhone release over the last few years, then you’ll already be well aware that the will they, won’t they discussion about Apple bringing NFC to the platform is old news. In fact, at this point, it’s safe to say that many people have just decided that NFC will come when it comes and that debating its inclusion is just pointless.

Those of us carrying iPhones and iPads around are sometimes all too quick to point the finger at those with Android devices while waxing lyrical about how their phones and tablets are so susceptible to malware. That’s probably the truth if everything is left as nature intended, but if you start to jailbreak that aforementioned iPhone or iPad, then all bets are off.

You’d have to have been living in a cave earlier this year to miss the whole Flappy Bird saga. Becoming hugely popular on the App Store and Play Store almost overnight, Flappy Bird raked in huge sums of money for its creator Dong Nguyen on an apparently daily basis. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough to keep him happy though, and his newfound fame – or should that be infamy – caused him to pull the game and almost disappear.
