Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:35

The iPhone 6 is so hotly anticipated that it’s making people crazyAfter months upon months of rumors and leaks, Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 6 will finally be unveiled at a press conference on September 9th. And it’s a good thing, too — anticipation for Apple’s new iPhone models has boiled over and it’s now making people completely crazy. FROM EARLIER: New iPhone 6 photo leak shows fully assembled housing… and it’s still ugly How crazy is it making people, you might ask? So crazy that they are spending time analyzing Apple’s media invitation for its upcoming press conference in an effort to dig for clues.

The 13 movies and TV shows we're most looking forward to this fall

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:34

The 13 movies and TV shows we're most looking forward to this fallNow, we'll admit, we haven't been particularly thrilled by any of them so far — Constantine and Gotham, in particular, have rocky starts — but they all have potential, and we're excited to see how DC plans to start bringing its heroes to life. Agents of SHIELD had a rocky start before hitting a creative stride during the final six episodes of its first season, when the series really began to address the fallout from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. With Marvel Studio's film success continuing unabated, Agents of SHIELD (along with a new show, Agent Carter, premiering in January) will undoubtedly be setting the stage for the studio's next blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron — and that's definitely worth sticking around for. David Fincher's next thriller is all about uncertainty.

From Game Boy to the new 3DS XL, this is the full history of Nintendo's handheld dominance

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:15

From Game Boy to the new 3DS XL, this is the full history of Nintendo's handheld dominanceMy first-ever video game anything was a Game Boy. Nintendo's success in the portable game market is nothing if not phenomenal, with well over 400 million in sales across more than three decades, with Nintendo DS and Game Boy being the the #2 and #3 best-selling consoles of all time. Though Nintendo has arguably released well more than a dozen handheld systems, it really boils down to less than a handful of platforms and two iconic brands: the Game Boy and the DS. Here's a look back at Nintendo's entire portable gaming history.

Sprint grabs lifeline with rural U.S. roaming deals

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:15

People walk past a Sprint store in New YorkBy Marina Lopes and Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With plans for a T-Mobile US Inc merger in tatters, Sprint Corp is expanding a roaming program with rural cellphone companies that could provide a much-needed way for the debt-laden wireless carrier to cheaply increase its footprint. In March, Sprint Chairman Masayoshi Son struck a roaming deal with the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA), which represents many U.S. Sprint and CCA plan to announce another batch of individual agreements to expand the roaming partnerships at an industry trade show in early September, CCA President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Berry said this week. When Son announced the mutual roaming agreement, many industry observers shrugged it off as a sweetener to soften U.S.

You won’t be able to buy an iWatch until 2015

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:10

You won’t be able to buy an iWatch until 2015It has been all but officially confirmed that Apple will introduce its hotly anticipated wearable device at the press event on September 9th, but you probably won’t be able to get your hands on one until next year. According to Re/code, sources close to Apple say that the iWatch won’t hit the market for at least another few months. FROM EARLIER: New report claims Apple might delay the iWatch until 2015 “It’s not shipping any time soon,” said one source. It’s not clear when exactly Apple plans to bring its wearable to the market, but it will almost certainly be after the holiday season, sometime in early 2015. As with any Apple rumor, none of this has been confirmed by

Apple's wearable reportedly won't ship until 2015

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 10:55

Apple's wearable reportedly won't ship until 2015There's a reason Apple's wearable device hasn't leaked out yet: it won't be shipping to consumers anytime soon. According to Recode, the iWatch (or whatever Apple ends up calling it) isn't scheduled to hit retail shelves until early next year — several months after its world debut on September 9th. The wait won't be much fun for Apple's fans, but it holds true to the strategy Apple uses when announcing its biggest products. Tim Cook has repeatedly said that Apple still places huge importance on the element of surprise, and the delay between announcement and shipping prevents unwanted leaks from manufacturing plants and / or the FCC.

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 10:40

Telltale Games releases new details about 'Game of Thrones' video game seriesTelltale Games has released a few new details for its episodic video game adaptation of Game of Thrones, which it confirmed late last year. In addition to reposting an earlier trailer, Telltale added a teaser banner that quotes a section of the fifth Song of Ice and Fire novel, A Dance with Dragons, about Deepwood Motte, a castle in the north of Westeros that plays a relatively small part in several of the books. The fourth season of the Game of Thrones TV adaptation concluded this summer, and if Telltale holds to its release date of 2014, the game's first chapter will arrive before we see a fifth.
