20 of the best apps for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

26 Feb 2015
Forget blown-up iPhone 5 apps - these crackers have all been optimised for your shiny new device... So you've had five months with your new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and by now you'll have noticed they have bigger screens. Great!

Except that most of the apps you own now scale themselves to the full size of the bigger display, making you feel like a tiny person with a gargantuan iPhone. But don’t despair, because app developers are scurrying to make use of the improved screen size and power of the newer devices, combined with all the loveliness of iOS 8.

The Big Tech Stories of 2015

23 Feb 2015
2015 will be an amazing year, and the amount of turmoil we will see likely will make 2014 look tame by comparison. Scandals, robots, elections, and the emergence of a variety of new technologies should define this space. As crazy as 2015 will be, 2016 is likely to be even crazier. Fortunately, I'm kind of into crazy, making this a decade I may enjoy too much.

We'll have robots, self-driving cars, armed autonomous drones, the professional proliferation of head mounted cameras, some scandals, and some interesting political implications. 

The best Android phablet rules with a pen

20 Feb 2015
The Good The 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a brilliant high-resolution screen and takes excellent outdoor shots on its 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. Using the stylus is more convenient, and the battery charges very quickly.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4's S-Pen -- the narrow stylus tucked handily inside Samsung's surprisingly successful, giant 5.7-inch Galaxy Note phone -- stands out in a crowd. No other popular phone comes with a stylus, and this one makes the most of its mouselike properties, and an ability to write and draw on the screen. Every day, I've used it instinctively to jot a list or note, and to keep the screen clean from finger smudges.

One month with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: 5 ways to use the edge and 10 reasons to love the phone

16 Feb 2015
I posted my review of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge at the end of November. I was then sent a T-Mobile version so I could use it as my daily driver with my own T-Mobile account. After more than a month of daily usage, I'm further convinced the Note Edge deserves my high 9.5/10 rating and it is a device I am seriously considering for myself.

Smartphone manufacturers sometimes release devices with features or design elements that make little sense, but in this case I regularly found the side display on the Edge to have practical usage. Combined with top notch specifications and hardware design, the Note Edge is one of the top Android devices available today.
