iPhones are a great deal of fun; you can make phone calls, send text messages, surf the web, listen to tunes, watch videos, and play games. We’ve already covered top Android games recently so it’s only fair to give Apple some equal face time too.
Instead of covering the more well-known games that virtually everyone has on their iPhones such as Angry Birds, Temple Run or Words with Friends, we’ll go off the beaten track a bit and list games that you may have missed. So hang on and here we go!
Arcade and casual games
If you’re looking quick and easy games that can be learned in a matter of seconds but can keep your interest for hours, you’ve just arrived at the arcade zone. Here are some of our picks: More...
When thinking about purchasing a new mobile phone, most people like to compare different models from all the manufacturers in order to gauge which ones are the best. Each company has a “flagship” phone or in other words, a device which represents the best it has to offer.
In this article we’ll present the flagship phones from some of the most popular companies in the industry and give a brief synopsis on each device.
Which one is the best out of all of them? For that answer, we’ll leave that up to you because everyone has different needs, tastes, and preferences. But what we can do is to showcase what’s out there so you can make the right choice. More...
Because Apple now seems to be ramping up its iPhone refreshes at a quicker pace than before, iPhone fans can expect to see newer improved models more frequently than the standard one-year waiting time in the past.
As Apple’s schedule for the release for these phones shortens, it means people who want to buy the latest tech will have to eventually get rid of their old phones somewhere. Some will just throw them in their old electronics drawer, never to be seen again, while others will pass the old models to friends or family.
But there is a third solution: sell your iPhone to a used electronics buyer such as BuyMyTronics.com for cash.
What’s the version?
The first thing you have to do before you can get some cash for your used iPhone is to determine what model you have. Although this may sound like an obvious thing to most people, there are some who received their iPhones as a gift and may not know the difference between iPhone versions (you know who you are out there).

San Francisco--On Wednesday, September 12 at approximately 10:15am PST during a foggy morning in the city where little cable cars reach halfway to the stars, Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, took center stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and introduced the company’s new baby—the iPhone 5. It weighed in at 112 grams.
Smaller and lighter
The iPhone 5 (yes it’s really called that) is the lightest and thinnest iPhone Apple has ever produced. It only weights 112 grams or about 4 ounces, and is 7.6mm (0.30 inches) thick.
The body of the iPhone is made of aluminum and glass. Tim Cook said the iPhone 5 was “the most beautiful product we have ever made.” The iPhone 5 will come in the colors black or white. More...
Apple, iPhone, iTunes, all house-hold names that have been abuzz in the air over the past few weeks as rumors leak outwards as to what Apple plans to do with their newest additions to the family. What are they building, and what features will they have? Is Tim Cook abandoning Steve Job’s claim that “Apple will never make a 7in tablet” that he made in an earnings call just a few years back? Lets wrap these rumors up, lay down what we know, and what we expect when Apple makes its announcement on September 12.
The Screen -
The New iPhone will be bigger. Sharps President Takashi Okuda said that his company will begin shipping the new 4 inch screen in August. It will be thinner, but not by much. This will be accomplished by using Sharp’s new IGZO display that allows more light to pass through smaller transistors. This means less LEDs. Ergo, less space. More...

A typical scenario of how phones are lost or stolen is by leaving them behind accidentally in restaurants, libraries or other public establishments. Missing mobile phones that are returned to their owners are rare, but the other outcome that many are all too familiar with is that the phone is gone forever.
If the owners had phone insurance, would it have helped recover the cost of a replacement, and is phone insurance really worth it?
The insurance plans
When you buy a new mobile phone, the wireless carrier will give you the option of adding an insurance plan that will cover some of the costs of a replacement in the event of lost, damage or theft. Most of us are familiar with car insurance policies and how drivers are protected, but do phone insurance policies work in the same way?
The short answer is yes, but with a lot of conditions. Generally speaking phone insurance can cost anywhere from $6.99 to $14.99 per month or more. Plans also differ according to what you want in the coverage -- whether it is for simple lost or theft to full equipment coverage, which also replaces damaged or defective phones. More...

Remember last year when smartphone fans around the world were anxiously living on rumors and tidbits about Apple’s new iPhone 5? It seemed as though every theory, story, and conjecture, no matter how far-fetched, was taken at face value and accepted as the truth.
But as we all know now, virtually all of the rumors failed to launch, so to speak, and Apple fans saw the reveal of the iPhone 4S in October 2011, instead.
Although it’s hard to believe, the Apple rumor mill has begun to crank out more stories about the next model of the iPhone. Some have already tagged it as the iPhone 5, while others believe Apple will throw another curve ball at the public and name it something else.
Most bets are on Apple naming its new product the “Next iPhone.”
One of the main weaknesses and complaints about the iPhone series are the glass backs – drop your iPhone and the fragile case shatters. But according to some sources within the industry, Apple may be incorporating a new material for its cases with something called Liquidmetal. More...
A phone is only as good as its ability to power on. If it doesn't power on, it's no good! But how do you tell whether or not a phone powers on? This handy guide will light the way.
Before powering on a phone, make sure a battery has been inserted into the device, a known working battery is best. Next, press the power button. It should have a symbol like on the picture above, keep in mind that another key, such as the "end" key, might also act as the power button. If you see no light eminating from the device, the battery might be drained.
Plug a charger into the phone and see if any charging indicators pop up, if none pop up, then your phone doesn't power on, but if it springs to life? Huzzah! Your phone powers on!

Here's a fun little graphic from TechCrunch.com that pits Android, Blackberry, and iPhone users against each other. Pretty funny, and not far from the truth!
For the first time in over 18 weeks, the iPhone 4 is not the number one phone in Japan. The perennial powerhouse has been dethroned by the Samsung Galaxy S. The iPhone 4 32GB had taken Japan by storm for the last few months, but now it seems that the Android based phone is trying to wiggle its way into the Japanese market. It remains to be seen if this is just a one week spike, or if the Galaxy S can stay relevant in the Japanese market, but regardless it's always interesting to take note of the battle between iPhones and Android based phones.
