Nearly three in every four smartphones sold during the first quarter of 2013 were running Android, according to the latest statistics from the analysts at Gartner. Google’s operating system grabbed a whopping 74% of the market share during the three-month period, while Apple’s iOS came in second with 18.2%.
Companies choosing to build Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and Symbian powered devices might want to look away now.
Having said that, BlackBerry will [Read More...]
What would a budget or mid-range iPhone mini look like with a radical new vision of iOS 7 installed on it, fronted by that skeuomorph-hating design perfectionist, Jony Ive?
Martin Hajek — one of the most talented Apple concept designers around — wanted to know, so he created a new budget iPhone concept that features bighter colors, a smaller screen, and a plastic backshell inspired by the iPad mini, then “installed” DÃ¡maso BenÃtezâ€™ “really nice [Read More...]
If you’ve ever had a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro’s battery disappear at random it can be a disconcerting feeling. This is often accompanied with the battery menu having an “X” through it and saying “No Batteries Available”, a very sluggish Mac, and even after a reboot or not the Mac will often have fans running at full speed despite nothing unusual showing up in Activity Monitor. To top it off, the MagSafe charger light typically is not lighting up, [Read More...]

There’s a great discussion unfolding over on Branch between some Apple reporters about the future release date of iOS 7.
According to the sources of those involved in the discussion, Jony Ive’s fingerprints will be all over iOS 7, the only problem is it’s taking longer to develop than originally planned. In fact, Apple might have even pulled engineers away from OS X 10.9 to work on it.
Following heavy complaints from activist groups like Greenpeace, Apple announced last year that all of its data centers would be powered by 100% renewable energy by 2013.
Apple just updated their Environmental Policies webpage to report that as of now, all its data centers are running on 100% renewable energy.
As reported by Bloomberg, all the company’s data centers run on either, solar, wind, or geothermal energy rather than coal [Read More...]
There are plenty of ways to prevent sleep, whether it’s the caffeinate command, the Caffeine menubar item, pmset, or hot corners, but each of those is all encompassing, meaning being active prevents sleep regardless of what is running. If you’ve ever thought it’d be nice to selectively prevent sleep based on specific applications instead, that’s exactly what Wimoweh does.
Wimoweh allows you to prevent [Read More...]
For the sixth year in a row, Apple has topped Fortune’s list of world’s most admired companies, beating out other tech giants to the top spot like Google, Amazon and IBM.
Why? Despite Apple’s recent drubbings on Wall Street, it’s still the most profitable company in the world and maintains a cultish fanbase (*cough*) even though Cupertino won’t sacrifice the quality (or profitability) of its products.
There’s few better ways to extend the capabilities of your Apple TV 2 than installing XBMC on it, but after the latest Apple TV 5.2 software (iOS 6.1) dropped, there was just no way to do it. Thankfully, XMBC has been updated, and will now stably supercharge your second-gen Apple TV just as well as it did before.
To do the install, it’s as simple as following the instructions over on the [Read More...]
