WWE SuperCard iOS review

Lewis Curdie  10 hours ago

I touched on wrestling many moons ago in He Is Pile Driver, and here we return to the World’s Greatest Art Form (drama! Comedy! Music! Athleticism!) in WWE Super Card (free @ App Store, free @ Google Play).

2K revealed this week that the app was downloaded a whopping 1.5 million times in its first week, so I looked out my tightest spandex, oiled myself up and challenged WWE SuperCard to a no holds barred grappling session.

Acer Liquid Jade smartphone, Liquid Leap band definitely coming to UK soonish

Acer Liquid Jade smartphone, Liquid Leap band definitely coming to UK soonish

Lewis Curdie  11 hours ago

If there’s one thing that really annoys us, it’s when manufacturers start teasing products early, and take freakin’ ages before making the blasted things available. Can you see where I’m going with this?

I first mentioned the Acer Liquid Jade smartphone and Liquid Leap band FOUR MONTHS AGO, and now we’re finally told that they’ll definitely go on sale in the UK. At some point.

iPhone 6 rumour mania: three colours, dead expensive, NFC support?

iPhone 6 rumour mania: three colours, dead expensive, NFC support?

Lewis Curdie  13 hours ago

With the iPhone 6 launch date officially set for September 9, and the release likely following on September 19, you’d be forgiven for thinking that we were done talking about Team Tim and the California Cooks for the week. Not by a long shot, buddy.

Here I’m combining three rumour yarns into one action-packed story. Specifically, we’re told the iPhone 6 will come in three colours, be more expensive than the existing models, and support NFC (Near Field Communication) with the contactless payments and whatnot.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 on sale now! No announcement necessary!

Lewis Curdie  15 hours ago

In this day and age, absolutely nothing gets past the internet. It doesn’t matter if it’s the mention of an as-yet-unannounced device buried deep in some low-level code, or the brief and entirely “accidental” appearance of a new gadget in the background of some promo shot.

Naïve old Samsung clearly thought it could quietly launch the Galaxy Mega 2 in Thailand and Malaysia without anyone else noticing, but now the whole world knows the phone – inside and out.

Apple announces 9 September event: iPhone 6 definite, iWatch likely

Apple announces 9 September event: iPhone 6 definite, iWatch likely

Martin James  16 hours ago

Well, it's official. Apple has sent out invites to an event in Cupertino on 9 September, where it will finally put an end to the speculation and unveil the iPhone 6.

For the first time Apple's iconic smartphone will come in two sizes – 4.7in and 5.5in – while it's looking increasingly certain Apple will also use the event to launch its iWatch wearable.

Ascend P7 with sapphire crystal display: the first ‘shocking product’ from Huawei?

Ascend P7 with sapphire crystal display: the first ‘shocking product’ from Huawei?

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Huawei chairman Richard Yu teased “shocking products” a few weeks ago, and while the Ascend Mate 7 will likely make a decent splash at IFA 2014 next week, “shocking” is maybe a bit of a stretch.

This guy, however, this guy is a little more interesting. I speak of the Huawei Ascend P7 with sapphire crystal display, which might just land before the iPhone 6.

Apple iPhone 6 release date: September 19?

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

It’s widely accepted that the iPhone 6 launch will go down on September 9, but the more pressing question for consumers is: When the hell can I actually buy it?

September 19 is the entirely unsurprising answer from out east, which gels nicely with Apple’s historical launch/release antics.

September mobile madness: full preview

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Earlier this week I answered September Madness: What are YOU looking forward to? with September Madness: What I’M looking forward to. Makes sense, right?

However, I touched on a mere four things, when there’s nothing short of a bona fide onslaught of new technology on the horizon. “Scribble it all down!” you say? Check it out below, Jeeves.

Samsung Gear S: new Tizen wearable made official

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Google is reportedly unhappy about Samsung’s persistence with Tizen wearables, and while the South Koreans threw Android Wear a cursory nod with the Gear Live, the world’s number one mobile manufacturer is back on the Tizen train. Uh oh!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Samsung Gear S, a spanking new Tizen-fuelled smartwatch that “enhances the smart wearable experience”.

Amazon Fire Phone sales embarrassment: no more than 35,000 sold so far

Amazon Fire Phone sales embarrassment: no more than 35,000 sold so far

Martin James  3 days ago

When Amazon launched its debut smartphone, the Fire Phone, in July, it put to an end to more than two years of rumours following the launch of the Kindle Fire tablet back in 2011.

But while the Kindle Fire was a sales hit from the start, early data suggests the Fire Phone has barely flickered at all.

The Walking Dead Pinball iOS review

Hey guy. If you’re looking for an opinion on The Walking Dead Pinball, you’ve come to the right place. See, at the time of writing, I’m number two in the world. THE WORLD *flexes finger muscles*.

Following hot on the heels of Doctor Strange and Deadpool’s outings, Zen Pinball brings Telltale’s The Walking Dead to the table (pun intended). The Walking Dead? Good. Pinball? Good. Put them together?

Archos teases 40 Cesium debut Windows Phone among IFA arrivals

Martin James  3 days ago

It's the week before a major technology show which means it's time for Archos to preview a gaggle of new mobile devices you've probably never heard of and almost certainly won't buy.

Well, that's how recent history has turned out anyway. Question is – can the French firm's pre-IFA 2014 vintage change that tune and make a lasting impact?

Google Nexus X specs listed by French retailer

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

It’s largely accepted that the next Nexus smartphone is being built not by LG, but by Google’s former son Motorola, with codename Shamu.

Here we’re calling it the Google Nexus X, and seeing the specs listed by French retailer Fnac, however a closer look suggests we’re right to be cynical.

Samsung Galaxy A range to launch with three new phones in September

Samsung Galaxy A range to launch with three new phones in September

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

For me, the Galaxy Alpha is one of the most confusing releases of late – even for a Samsung phone. See, it plugs the gap – if you can call it a gap – between the S5 mini and the flagship Galaxy S5, and looks to stand out with a dash of – shock horror – metal on the side. Er, just what everyone was… hoping for?

Confusinger still, we’re told the Galaxy Alpha is merely the first in an imminent wave of phones, with Samsung tipped to birth as many as three “Galaxy A” handsets this very quarter. Wow.
