If you're shopping for a TV streaming device, you have quite a few options, ranging from set-top-boxes to game consoles. But where does Google's new Chromecast fit into the mix? We know it's cheap (US$35), but is it a legit rival to, say, the Apple TV? Read on, as we compare the two different approaches to the 21st century living room.  Read More

Here's how to jailbreak Apple TV and get access to more content than you could ever watch ...

Compared to other media set-top boxes, the Apple TV can appear somewhat limited. Out of the box it offers a limited number of channel apps and, unless you're invested in the Apple ecosystem, its AirPlay features are marginal at best. But the good news is you can get more content (a lot more), and additional functionality out of your Apple TV 2 with a simple jailbreak. It allows you to install popular apps like XBMC that make it easier to stream digital content throughout your home network. You're also able to find hundreds of internet channels like you'd find on a Roku.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the new Nexus 7 and the aging iPad mini

If you're shopping for a smallish tablet, we wouldn't blame you for narrowing it down to the iPad mini and Google's new Nexus 7. But how do you choose between the two? Let Gizmag lend a hand, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the two mini-tablets.  Read More

Apple is reportedly testing screens for a larger iPhone, and some sort of tablet device th...

If you compare the iPhone to any of the most popular Android phones, there's one big thing you'll notice. The iPhone's screen looks positively puny next to phones like the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S4, and HTC One. According to a new report, though, Apple might be cooking up something that will even that playing field.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of Apple's iPhone 5, and HTC's new mini-me ...

The HTC One is one of the most Apple-like Android phones ever made. Its unified design, high-quality build materials, and attention to detail harken back to some of Apple's finest products. So when HTC released a variant of the One that's closer in size to the iPhone 5, we wondered how the two would stack up. Read on, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the HTC One mini and iPhone 5.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the newly-discounted Microsoft Surface R...

When the Microsoft Surface RT launched last year, it was a hard sell at US$500. It ran an unproven software platform, had relatively few apps, and you had to pay an extra $120 or so to get its killer feature, the Surface keyboard cover. But with Microsoft recently dropping the Surface RT's base price, is it worth a second look? Let's see how it compares to another $300-something slate, the iPad mini.  Read More

A report from the far East suggests Apple has pushed back the release of the second-genera...

It was probably about three seconds after the original iPad mini launched, when the question was first asked: "How long until it gets a Retina Display?". For all of the current model's great features (premium build, light weight, compact form factor), its 163 PPI display isn't exactly cutting-edge. Rumors have been all over the place about the inevitable Retina upgrade, but a new report says that it may be showing up a little later than expected.  Read More

Another leak is pointing to a redesigned iPad launching around September

Common sense tells us that a new iPad isn't far away. With last November's 4th-generation model being little more than a minor spec-bump, we're going on 16 months since the last significant update to the 9.7-inch iPad. Previous rumors have given us a pretty clear idea of what the next model will look like, and now we may also have a clearer idea of when Apple will announce it.  Read More

If Apple's rumored smartwatch hits store shelves, a new report suggests it might indeed be...

Unless Apple is sending us all on a wild goose chase, it looks like there might be something to those smartwatch rumors. Apple's alleged wrist-based computing device, which has been leaked several times during 2013, is looking even more likely now, as the company recently filed paperwork in Japan for a device called "iWatch."  Read More

Apple is reportedly moving further away from Samsung, sourcing TSMC for some of its next-g...

The relationship between Apple and Samsung is, well, complicated. They're like two bitter exes who work together, or maybe live in the same building. If circumstances permitted, they'd never see each other again. But, try as they may, they just can't get each other out of their lives. Can you say awkward? Well, that relationship is about to take one step closer to complete severance, as Apple is reportedly partially switching to TSMC for the coming year's iOS processors.  Read More
