Sir Paul McCartney, the English singer, songwriter, composer, musician and founding member of The Beatles, has embraced the iPad to bring five of his classic albums to the iOS App Store. The musical works of art have been remastered and transformed into native iPad apps by McCartney and his record label, Concord Music Group. As well as including special remastered versions of each song from the classic albums, the individual iPad apps also offer signature content and media that has been created specifically with this project in mind.

Apple’s next-generation iPhone won’t be officially announced until September, but that doesn’t stop the rumor mill from going into overdrive early. We won’t know exactly what the Apple has in store for us until the covers are removed from the device, but if you simply can’t contain your excitement and are happy to base your decisions purely on speculation then you can already purchase a working clone of the “iPhone 6″, designed and manufactured entirely from the leaked designs and components over the last few months.

When it comes to voice-enabled personal assistants on mobile devices, Apple and Google have dominated that space, forcing others to either play catch-up or risk losing a percentage of market share from users who require that advanced functionality. BlackBerry hasn’t exactly been up there batting alongside the best-of-the-best in recent years, but while the company may lack traction within the consumer space it still holds some weight with corporate users. In an effort to improve the BB10 experience for that loyal corporate user-base, the company has taken to its Inside BlackBerry blog to officially introduce the Blackberry Assistant, a digital experience that will attempt to rival Siri on iOS and Google Now on Android hardware.

It seems that the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 “will it, won’t it” saga is set to continue. Apple is widely expected to continue the development of the iPhone by introducing a new 4.7-inch model as well as a larger 5.5-inch “phablet” variant which will appeal those individuals who love a larger display. The question surrounding the release isn’t whether or not the purported larger device exists, but whether Apple and its supply chain partners are able to flawlessly manufacture the parts necessary for the device in the required quantities. According to Ming-Chi Kuo – a well respected industry analyst from KGI Securities – the larger in-cell touchscreen panel and the redesigned metal casing that forms the exterior of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 are proving to be problematic, meaning that a launch could be pushed back to 2015.

Being able to interact with the world in a different way through touch and audible gestures feels like you’ve been catapulted into a futuristic, science-fiction movie. But what if there was a way to remove the limitations associated with having to bark out voice commands in public and use nothing more than a little brainpower to get things done with Glass? The future is here thanks to London-based company This Place and its new Glass compatible technology.

There’s been so much talk, conjecture and wild speculation about the iWatch over the last 12 months that it’s impossible to actually focus on the individual parts of the actual product. Will it be an intelligent watch akin to the Pebble or Galaxy Gear? Are we all barking up the wrong tree by thinking it’s a watch when it’s actually a wearable packed full of health related sensors? Apple’s next product release is fast approaching, meaning that we shouldn’t have to wait much longer for the big reveal, but if you’re of an impatient disposition then why not head over to the Google Play Store and get the iWatch now?

There are literally hundreds of reasons why a particular device may appeal to one person and not another, but when you strip that away we’re all concerned with the privacy and integrity of the data that passes through that device. If your smartphone of choice resides on the Android side of the fence then it could be time to rethink how sensitive data is wiped from memory after a new research has suggested that data removed using Android’s native wipe feature can be restored.

For a lot of jailbreak fans out there, one of the most important aspects attached to liberating a device is the ability to efficiently access the internal file system. This access could be required for a number of reasons which are beyond the scope of this article, but suffice to say it’s undoubtedly an important part of jailbreaking.

It’s only going to be a matter of time until every major appliance in the home is connected to our mobile devices in some fashion. We already have kettles that can be switched on via a mobile app; intelligent thermostats that evolve and become more capable based on our behaviors as well as lighting systems that can be altered directly from a companion app to suit or moods at any given time. The possibilities are pretty much endless.

Imagine the joy and unlimited amount of fun that comes attached to working for a company with the resources to not only research, but to design and develop pretty much whatever it wants? Apple, Google and Microsoft, amongst others, find themselves in that privileged position within the consumer technology industry, but it appears that Nissan is also living that dream if the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed showcase is anything to go by. Rather than go through the usual processes of designing and building a concept vehicle, Nissan has used the Gran Turismo 6 video game to tease petrol-heads with a new downloadable GT-R prototype, and then built it in real life.

The iPhone 6 is coming, and boy do we know about it. We are currently sitting right at the peak of the speculation and concept stage of the annual release cycle, meaning that each day we can look forward to a new influx of best and educated guesses pertaining to potential device specifications as well as new concept art. There will undoubtedly be an exception to that at some point but today is not that day. Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s beautiful iPhone 6 renders from Mark Pelin, we are now seeing a new – albeit very similar – set shown off in multiple colors.

The growing list of “iPhone 6″ leaked visuals, components and schematics seem to be never-ending at the moment. Rarely does a day go by at the moment without someone claiming to have inside knowledge of Apple’s supply chain through which they have extracted the exact design and visuals of the next-generation iPhone. Rarely do these predictions turn out to be true. Still, the annual pre-release dance is always entertaining, bringing with it some beautiful looking concepts and renders from some of the Internet’s best designers. The latest visuals, and perhaps the most convincing and aesthetically pleasing yet, come from designer Mark Pelin and aim to incorporate all of the most reputable leaks into one single artist’s impression.

Great news for all Android Wear device owners out there: Google has just added to the momentum of the Wear freight train initiative by introducing the official Android Wear companion app for tablets and smartphones. The new app has been designed and developed to act as an intermediary piece of software that connects the user’s phone or tablet with the Android Wear hardware, which at the moment will be either the Samsung Gear Live or the LG G Watch. The app is available to download immediately from the Play Store.

Google Glass may have managed to notch up legions of fans thanks to its technical capabilities, but could we about to see the fashion conscious adopt the wearable technology as a statement of style? It may sound a little far-fetched as the product isn’t exactly the most aesthetically pleasing piece of kit we’ve ever come across. However, in an effort to stand apart from other providers of prescription lenses for Glass, Rochester Optical has started offering a line of stylish sunglass lenses that are compatible with Google’s eyewear.

This year’s Google I/O was undeniably one of the more interesting and fruitful Google gatherings that we’ve seen for some time. In the middle of the plethora of announcements made during the keynote we managed to get an insight into Project Volta, Google’s latest internal crack at singling out a weakness within its Android platform and fixing it. Last year it was Project Butter that stole the limelight by attempting to make animations within Android run at 60 frames-per-second. This time around the Volta team will concentrate attention on various aspects of Android in an attempt to improve battery life. The good news? Early investigations into Android L suggests that the hard work is proving fruitful.

The introduction of iOS 8 during this year’s WWDC definitely managed to reignite the passion of developers around the world. It may not have come attached with the radical changes that were introduced as part of the transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7, but the announced features and improvements represent a huge shift in how apps will be developed going forward. One of those features was Safari Extensions, which as you can see from the accompanying Vine video, affords developers with the ability to offer seamless native tie-ins with their apps when interacting with Mobile Safari.

Pebble has continued its tradition of bringing new features and functionality to its smartwatch owners by pushing out firmware updates as well as an improved version of the accompanying appstore based iOS app.

Reports, leaks and speculation pertaining to the next-generation iPhone are starting to come through thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple could be planning on differentiating between the 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models by integrating InvenSense optical image stabilization technology into the latter, but not the former. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone models will be offered with 32GB and 64GB variants, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB option could be relegated to history. Following on from that, a Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5-inch model could make iPhone history by being the first model to be offered with a 128GB internal storage option.

It’s generally accepted that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will ultimately be offered in two different sizes. A number of leaks have all but confirmed that the Cupertino company is working on a 4.7-inch smartphone as well as 5.5-inch model with a release cycle that could potentially be staggered. The latest question being posed by concerned potential consumers is whether or not the two models will offer the same functionality, differing only in physical size. If the latest predictions by Pacific West Securities is anything to go by then it could be the built-in camera modules that offer up the difference.

If history has taught us anything, it’s that persistent rumors tend to have some kind of foundation to them. That’s why we aren’t surprised to see more information pertaining to the speculated Nexus tablet from HTC coming into the public domain.
