It’s all a part of Apple’s new iCloud integration, and it works pretty well.

But what if you really don’t want to  [Read More…]

The iPhone 5 is going to be huge.

With Apple’s initial iPhone 5 pre-order stock gone within just one hour on Friday, we knew the company’s sixth-generation smartphone was going to be huge. Even Apple itself has said that it has been “blown away” by the demand.
