As recently as a year ago, iPhone vs. Galaxy showdowns required you to choose between premium builds and big screens. But now that the iPhone has a spacious screen, and the Galaxy has a high-end build, you're going to have to base your decision on other factors. Let Gizmag lend a hand, as we compare the features and specs of the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge

Last week Samsung launched its ultra light and thin MacBook Air rival, the 2015 Ativ Book 9

are going to be adjusting their pledges today. A week after launching Pebble Time on Kickstarter, the company has added a Steel option for an extra $91.
Since Samsung's Gear VR
launched in December, owners have been limited to a group of free apps, games and "experiences" (most of which were demos). Starting today, though, US-based owners of the virtual reality headset can buy paid apps – opening the door to more full-blown games.
