The ongoing Apple vs. Samsung patent trial has managed to capture and hold our attentions for a number of reasons. The bitter legal wrangle currently shows no signs of subsiding as both companies continue to flex their legal might in the hope of claiming even the smallest of victories over the other.

MultiPass is one of the latest tweaks to make its way onto the BigBoss repo that will likely appeal to the indecisive security conscious individuals out there. In today’s modern world there are plenty of malicious individuals out there who make it their sole goal to try and extract information from smartphones that don’t belong to them. It’s for that reason that it’s generally considered to be good practice to apply as much security as possible to the device. Apple’s native Passcode offering is one way of doing that, with MultiPass existing to extend that functionality to suit user’s needs.

You may or may not have heard of WTFJeans, a small start-up operating out of Zagreb, Croatia. The company was applauded for thinking out of the box four years ago when it launched a range of jeans that were marketed as being “iPhone friendly” thanks to the inclusion of a specifically designed microfiber lined pocket. We’re now four years down the line, and although we are yet to see any pairs of WTFJeans making it onto the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week, the company behind the product has just launched a revamped lineup that offers additional appeal to iPhone owners.

A set of internal documents has revealed that Google is all set to make an assault on the soon-to-be bloated set-top TV device industry. The internal Google documents reveal that the Internet services company is deriving inspiration from existing products such as the Roku, Apple TV and Amazon’s new Fire TV to introduce an intelligent set-top box known as Android TV that will hopefully serve as a powerful alternative to the existing solutions on the market.

Essential activities like banking, shopping and sending emails can all be achieved from the palm of our hands through a device that fits snugly in a trouser pocket. But with all that power comes an increased level of responsibility to protect ourselves and the people we communicate with online. Malicious groups that have previously attempted to target Apple ID holders through official looking phishing scams are at it again with a new “account validation” scam.

Those who can’t function without a jailbreak are forced to stay on iOS 7.0.x unless iOS 7.1 is exploited. If you’re one of those people then the chances are that iOS 7.1 includes a few tidbits that definitely have that appeal factor.

If you’re a jailbroken iPhone user running iOS 7, and not exactly getting along with Apple’s native multitasking system then let us introduce you to Switchr. Sure, plenty of developers who play their trade in the ever-changing jailbreak world have attempted to reinvent the iOS multitasking system. Some have failed miserably whereas some have managed to capture the thoughts and feelings of the end-user and built a tweak that definitely improves the overall experience.

WWDC is regularly used by Apple to give us a first glimpse at the next-generation of iOS and provide us some valuable insights into how the company is performing and what the immediate future might look like. If that’s still not reason enough to sit up and take note, then how about some fantastic free WWDC 2014 themed wallpapers for your iPhone and iPad?

The introduction of the iPhone 5s during the final quarter of 2013 marked a significant hardware change in the mobile industry. Not only was the 5s the first consumer facing smartphone to introduce 64-bit architecture with the A7 chipset, but it was also the first publicly available smartphone to implement fingerprint scanning technology thanks to Touch ID. It’s highly likely that biometric based detection and authentication will become increasingly popular over the next few years, with manufacturers coming up with their own unique uses. On the subject of biometrics, a new comparison video from Tanner Marsh gives a fairly comprehensive overview of fingerprint detection on what are arguably the market’s two most powerful smartphones: the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S5.

The Motorola / Google connection may have been relatively short lived and not exactly a perfect match, but it clearly gave Google a thirst for innovative hardware. That thirst is still being quenched today thanks to Project Ara and we can now get an additional insight of those involved with building the block based smartphone thanks to a new Phonebloks video.

Facebook’s commitment to mobile has undoubtedly been questionable in the past. The purchase of Instagram and subsequent acquisition of WhatsApp has proved that Mark Zuckerberg’s social network definitely sees native mobile experiences as of paramount importance to the company’s immediate future. However, it’s the continuing development of the Messenger app that manages to convince us that the small screen is extremely important to Facebook. It’s only been a matter of days since Messenger was updated with a powerful group management system, but version 4.1 for iPhone and Android is already here, bringing with it the introduction of unlimited free voice calls via a Wi-Fi connection.

When you consider the fact that users are starting to embrace mobile based photography more and more, and mix it together with the diverse world of iPhone based accessories, then you get a perfect opportunity for innovative and unique products to take center stage.

Starting with iOS 7, Apple introduced a new security mechanism into all iOS devices that required a user to disable Find My iPhone before an iCloud account could be deleted or the device could be restored. This, of course, requires access to the password associated with that Apple ID. The system was heralded as a great step forward for Apple, but it seems that it is not completely secure, with the discovery of a bug that allows the whole process to be bypassed. More details and video demo can be found right here.

You have to jump back to the turn of the century to remember a handset that managed to define a generation: the Nokia 3310. We all loved it. We all had one. We all played Snake on it. And now, thanks to some marketing genius from within Nokia, the 3310 is back with a modern twist ready to take on the big boys of the current age.

There’s been plenty of conjecture and speculation surrounding Apple’s next-generation iPhone over the last few months. We’re fast approaching this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference, a date which inevitably brings with it intensified scrutiny of the company’s future product roadmap as well as a renewed sense of hope that the company will fall back to its traditional June iPhone announcement dates. It looks highly unlikely that we will get an official introduction to the iPhone 6 during WWDC, but if the latest reports are to be believed then we could be set to welcome in a new device with a 4.7-inch screen.

According to a newly published report, the Galaxy S5 has the most accurate and the best display in the world. More details can be found right here.

If you’ve been involved in the jailbreak scene for a number of years then it’s highly likely that you’ll be familiar with a number of the more popular tweaks that still grace Cydia with their presence. Thousands of iOS device owners, including myself, regularly take advantage of latest jailbreak techniques purely to get their hands on a couple of “must have” packages. The Barrel tweak, developed by Aaron Ash, is one of Cydia’s more well-known and used tweaks and has sat in a class of its own for a number of years – until the arrival of Cylinder by Reed Weichler.

Apple is famed across the land for making beautiful products with a premium look and feel. The iPhone and iPad range are beautifully put together and instantly stand head and shoulders above the competition in that respect. Accessories like the Time Machine, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad have clearly had a lot of design research applied to them. Even the Apple TV is beautiful in its own simplistic kind of way. That leads us nicely onto the company’s range of Mac computers. The MacBook and iMac are stunning to look at, but what if we had the option to purchase a sleek and mysterious looking black version of the MacBook Air?

Like most companies involved in the ultra competitive smartphone market, HTC would never turn down the opportunity to drum up some consumer interest in a new product pre-launch. And HTC is on the verge of making an official announcement regarding the all new HTC One, or M8 as it is more commonly referred to, but it seems that the cat has been let out of the bag for the second time from another unofficial source. Leaks and product speculation certainly get the tongues wagging of those who may actually be going to purchase the hardware, but we don’t know if HTC will be entirely happy about this latest HTC One hands-on video that has emerged.
