The huge developments that we’ve witnessed in technology, and in particular within the consumer electronics industry, over the last decade has undoubtedly made a lot of our lives easier and more efficient. We can now carry around small handheld devices that contain pretty much everything we need at the tap of the screen. Phone calls, messages, emails and navigation are all just a few taps away. That progression is arguably for the greater good, but wouldn’t it be even better if we had technological advancements that not only made our lives easier but also in some small part helped saved the planet? Let us introduce you to MIITO; the sustainable alternative to the electric kettle.

The introduction of social sharing back in the iOS 6 days was a pretty genius move by Apple, managing to pave the way for a whole new breed of socially integrated third-party apps, which still continue to make their way onto the App Store today. One developer, Akhil Tolani, has introduced his vision for the social side of apps by introducing Quick Compose, a socially aware, self-contained widget built for Notification Center.

If you happen to be an entirely addicted and overwhelmed Game of Thrones fan who has always wanted nothing more than to catapult yourself into the fictional world of Westeros then prepare to be overcome with absolute delight and sheer excitement. One diehard fan of the American fantasy drama, which of course, is set within the continents of Westeros and Essos, has taken the time to create a highly realistic-looking map of the continent of Westeros, based around an extremely familiar and aesthetically pleasing Google Maps style.

Can you imagine what life would be like if smartphone based artificial intelligence actually evolved to the point where it could replace the maternal responsibilities of your mother? We already rely on our handheld devices for pretty much every aspect of our daily lives, from storing details about our friends and family to sending and receiving communications via email or social networks, and even getting us to a selected destination via turn-by-turn directions. But what if – and bare with us on this one – Apple’s Siri digital assistant was actually your real life mother? Can you imagine how utterly ridiculous and confusing our life would be if that was so?

Apple’s plan for payment domination within the United States using its own Apple Pay system has received a significant boost after it was confirmed that Tim Cook’s company has struck a deal to integrate the payment system into The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The 5-star Cosmopolitan, located in the heart of Las Vegas Boulevard, has confirmed via an official statement that that it will indeed be adopting Apple Pay on its premises in an effort to not only lead the way in adopting new technologies but to also make payments faster and easier for guests and residents of the resort.

Ladies and gentleman, the future has eventually arrived. According to an official blog post on Citrix’s website, the company is on the verge of launching a wireless Bluetooth mouse that will allow us to control our mobile devices – iPhone, iPad or any Android gadget. For nearly a decade, perplexed consumers have wondered why it isn’t easily possible to connect a typical mouse to a mobile device like it is with a computer or notebook. Now, thanks to Citrix, we can finally start embracing the future.

The original iPhone, launched by the late Steve Jobs back in 2007, may seem archaic by today’s visual standards but at that time it was considered cutting edge. The company’s latest product, the Apple Watch, is considered to be a beautiful and elegant timepiece, but have you stopped to consider how remarkably similar it is to the original iPhone in terms of its visual design language?

According to a new report published by The New York Times, the Apple TV 4 will not only benefit from a hardware upgrade but will also come with a much revamped accompanying remote control. It’s been speculated for quite some time that the Cupertino outfit have made the shift internally from classing the Apple TV as a “hobby” project to actually being a viable, self sustaining product that has mass wide appeal with consumers. As part of that internal shift it seems that Apple will overhaul the aesthetics of the remote control in time for the fourth-generation launch.

Apple’s “most personal product yet,” the Apple Watch, may have only been publicly available for just shy of two weeks, but it has already been named the top rated smartwatch available on the market by one highly-rated, non-profit consumer organization.

Remember when we told you about Reserve Strap, the interchangeable charging band for the Apple Watch? Well it seems that there will be a little more to the product than we first envisaged, thanks to the manufacturer’s admittance that it plans to utilize the Apple Watch’s hidden diagnostic port to not only offer a beautiful band that can charge the device, but also offer faster than advertised charging, which is clearly something that will be of great appeal to consumers.

Like most consumer products, the recently released Apple Watch will only be deemed useful and extremely functional on an individual basis if each user chooses to adopt all of the powerful functionality contained within. There’s no denying that Apple’s most “personal product yet” ships with an advanced feature set that goes beyond what is already on the market, but it’s also accepted that a lot of those features may be considered to be nothing more than a marketing gimmick, such as the ability to share a heartbeat with another Apple Watch user. With that said, one proud set of parents have utilized that very same ability in a truly emotive manner that once agains shows how Apple products can invoke a connection that transcends being purely electronic.

If you’re in the market for an Apple Watch, and have your eyes set on the trendy Sport model, then there’s something you might want to know. It seems that not all colored bands are created equally for Apple’s entry level wearable.

If you take a look back over some of the decisions made internally at Samsung over the last few years it’s extremely difficult to argue in favour of the integrity of its design department. We will never truly know if the decision to blatantly copy the visuals of numerous Apple devices is made at the top of the corporate food-chain and then passed down to the individual departments, or if the design teams are so lacking in individuality that they take the easy option, but what we do know is that if this latest Galaxy S6 video is anything to go by the trend has managed to infiltrate the company’s marketing departments as well.

It’s no secret that the capabilities and technology contained within smartphones has progressed exponentially over the last decade. However, with that advancement comes the obvious trade-off; degraded battery life. There are plenty of options available in terms of third-party battery packs to offer additional juice while on the move. However, this new offering from a startup called Rubix looks to make things a little less clumsy for the end-user by offering additional iPhone battery life via a magnet connected pack.

The decision to integrate biometric detection into consumer electronics may be popular with users and shows the willingness of companies to embrace emerging technologies, but the fundamental reason for such integration boils down to one thing: an attempt to improve security. The data associated with biometric capture extends beyond a simple password or code created by the user. It actually forms part of who that person is as an individual and is quite possibly as personal as it can get, so when things go wrong, as one research company will point out at this week’s RSA, it raises a lot more eyebrows than a simple password breach. According to a new report, a number of Android devices are failing to protect the data of users that is captured through integrated biometric sensors.

A security analytics firm has identified a bug within a popular open-source networking library that potentially leaves up to 1,500 apps on the iOS App Store susceptible to malicious attacks. The report on the bug, which was identified last month, claims that apps using a particular version of the extremely popular AFNetworking library could be putting users at risk by exposing sensitive data – such as passwords, bank account information – and making it available to those with the expertise to exploit the vulnerability.

We have all suffered that anger inducing moment of inadvertently letting go of our smartphone and watching in horror as it crashes to the ground. The whole event usually lasts for a second or two, but feels like an eternity as we wait to see if the fall has caused the dreaded destruction of that beautiful multi-touch display. Imagine the exact same situation, but being forty stories up and watching as your beloved iPhone hurtles toward the ground below it. Oh, and it records the whole stressful event on its way down, too. That’s exactly what has happened to Catalin Marin in Dubai.

Carrying on from the recent announcement of its Xperia Z4 Tablet that was introduced as part of MWC 2015 last month, Sony has now taken the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone – Xperia Z4. Fans of the Xperia lineup of smartphones will be pleased to know that the latest Z4 hasn’t deviated hugely from its predecessor – Xperia Z3 – in terms of aesthetic design, but does come with improved technical specifications under-the-hood.

The Apple Watch has already managed to make quite a splash in the wearable market, and that’s before consumers even have it in on their wrists. With an estimated over two million pre-order sales, it’s almost certain that the first incarnation of the company’s “most personal product yet” will become an instant hit with technologists. As with most products that ship from the Cupertino giant, the Apple Watch is a masterclass hybrid of cutting edge design and engineering and now, thanks to the intricate work of Martin Hajek, we can now get an exploded look at the internals of the precise timepiece, thanks to a set of custom created 3D renders.
