09/03, 5:18pm

A new study by market research firm Kantar Worldpanel based in Europe has disputed speculation that Apple's next iPhones may not do as well as the record-shattering iPhone 6 lineup, which proposes that pent-up demand for a bigger-screen iPhone has now been addressed after three quarters of staggering sales figures. The study not only found that at least a third of all US iPhone buyers are at the end of their two-year contracts, but that the "switcher rate" from Android to iOS in Europe continues to grow.

Hands On: Magic River 1.0 (iOS)

09/03, 4:13pm

We've become somewhat accustomed to games falling short aesthetically. Either the designs are too gaudy, or the sounds are too harsh, and after we play them we're left feeling a little disappointed. Every so often, we come across a game that absolutely knocks it out of the park when it comes to design. For us, Magic River is one of those games.

Judge denies Apple new Smartflash trial, but retains dropped damages

09/03, 3:40pm

US District Court Judge Rodney Gilstrap has denied Apple a chance at a new trial to clear its name from charges that it willfully infringed on patents owned by patent troll Smartflash last February, but has decided to retain the dismissal of the original $532.9 million awarded to the company for damages, clearing the way for a damages retrial later this month. Judge Gilstrap reversed the jury's award, but not its findings of infringement, after he determined his own instructions on calculating royalties may have confused the jury.

Good Apples: Cupertino's failures that weren't

09/03, 2:00pm

Microsoft gets a lot of attention, praise and applause when it pre-announces products it's going to release one day and that somehow represent a golden future of the technology industry. Apple goes the other way and gets the opposite reaction: it prefers to announce products that actually are the future of the industry but you can buy them now. Maybe it's just that they casually drop in the words "available today" a little bit too smugly but for whatever reason you can put money on any Apple product being mocked, derided and decried at launch time. Later? Not so much.
